If you're familiar with Yoshiwara, then you'll expect some explicit scene and mature plot.
However this manga is well made, that you would not feel any disgust while reading it.
The female lead is just sharp enough to grasp reality,live her own way and look ahead into a brighter day.

not sure what i just read..I like her attitude but the ending hit me too fast. Before I knew it, it was the last page of the last chapter. Kinda abrupt but I guess it was a crude ending. Harsh reality for her. Awesome art though.

Horrible translation, good manga

I like this manga, it has very nice art and I think anyone who's interested in historic Japan or period pieces in general would enjoy it too.

The translation by Fifay.net is really horrible though. It would have benefitted immensely from a proofreader, but what shocks me the most is that it seems like they weren't even trying. Is it awful? Yes. Is it readable? Barely. You can get the gist of the story, but if you want a quality translation you're better off reading the official translation (which actually hasn't come out yet).

i cant say that its lovely... i cant say that its sweet because its is josei and it deals with prostitution and unrequinted love and that itself is rough... really rough... i think that if i have an adjective to describe it it would be bittersweet..

i just love Kyoha!! she is really strong and not just strong-strong tsundere... and suddenly soften up when the right guy comes along... well she did got gaga over this guy but she got over it! and i think that at the end she was going to commit suicide but she didnt which i love and i like the way she reacts to things... she is my idol...

and also it has been an eye opener for me... i really pity prostitutes.. i mean its not like they have a choice.. its not like one day as a child you wake up and suddenly say: hey! i wanna be a prostitute!

about the story... its fast paced and i also like this kind of story telling... the flasback thing.. i like it!!

the art.. it has its moments...

overall i like it!!! smile

I love this manga-ka and I love this manga its so true to how things would have been its SCARY its almost like actually seeing the history unfolding before you! I would definitely say that this is more a josei then a seinen so ladys do not be put off! the art is beautiful and the character is definitely not a push over she knows what she wants and by jo shes going to get it! The movie is good as well with fab music by shiina ringo so all fans should go watch that as it stars Nanas anna tsuchiya a MUST SEE!

Harsh in the loveliest way.

I agree with Philip... Yes, this is josei. Really excellent josei. It doesn't shy away from the less palatable aspects of prostitution, and it doesn't gloss over the psychological repercussions of doing such work. The heroine is a unique product of her environment: a woman that grew up in a brothel, and learned its ways long before a child should learn to fend for itself. As a result, she is a lot sturdier than most shoujo/josei heroines, and even though she can be cruel when the situation demands it of her, she is actually a decent person. Her harshness and her vulnerability make her a very fascinating character.

Now that Fifay.net has shut down, I hope another group continues scanslating this!

Ok story

This story is listed as seinen, but in both art and story it's classic shoujo/josei.
If those genres are not to your taste you may not find this story enjoyable.
