1-3) Hell's Warrior & the Maiden (Shura to Otome)
Kayono's first serialized work.
One day, a man named Shiryuu appears before Komomo, the daughter of the master of a Japanese-style dancing school. After insisting on becoming a disciple, Shiryuu begins living under the same roof as Komomo. Komomo then comes to be charmed by his beauty and kindness. But Shiryuu has a startling secret and a reason for wanting to romance Komomo quickly. What price will he pay for his interference?

4) The Nude Tribe (Ra Zoku)
"The Nude Tribe is a race of people who, so long as weather permits, spend their everyday indoor life in the complete and utter nude."
Ami is an aspiring model who's commanded by her manager to join the La Tribe as a means of getting her to stop blushing at every photo shoot. The embarrassment and discomfort factors are minimal... until Ami forgets that she's naked and opens her front door to greet a handsome neighbor! But Ryuuichirou doesn't mind -- and for an unusual reason!!

I read all of Kayono's works (because it had THE smut and THE art in perfection). This was the latest one I read, and the ending (Hell's Warrior and Maiden) caught me off guard. I mean, all the stories I read that she wrote were 'happy endings' that it was irritating. The usual pattern was like 'secret-rape(or)-sex-obstacle-happilyeverafter-theend.I though this was going to be the same. But this. This was damn tearjerking. ( It takes a lot to make me cry). This had the perfect smut-supernatural-tragedy combination ever. I love her art, stories, smut but Kayono's tragedy in this one? It was damn realistic.

I really liked the main story in this volume. The characters are good, the plot is good... everything here is good. My only main complaint is the ending! I just feel like it's a bit of a disappointment... And since Kayono tends to turn even the most tragic ending into a happy one, you just sort of expect the ending to resolve itself a bit better... At any rate, it's a change from her usual ending, so I guess it's okay.

The extra "The Nude Tribe" is a really cute one-shot. The hero isn't quite my type, so the story was missing a good dose of bishie (for me), but the plot was cute and there was lots of naked people and humor... So what more could you ask for? wink

well it did made me rol my eyes a couple of times in the first chapter..but it almost made me cry in the latter usual the art was captivating but i think the smut just made it go would have been a favorite if the smut is more minimal....but i have to admit it does have a good story...

as for the side story it made me smile!!! : )

This is such a wonderful bittersweet story. The art is gorgeous (as is Shiryuu). The plot is nice, though short. It's definitely worth the read. There is even potential for a sequel if Kayono-sensei decides to go that direction. The heroine is definitely cliche; too much more of her would have been a bad thing, so I'm glad it stopped where it did with her.

The extra story, The Nude Tribe, is also quite amusing and a fun, short read.

This is really good, and the ending is sad but at the same time hopeful (if that makes sense). Once again, Kayono has presented a beautiful and smutty manga BUT with a really good plot!

it's such a lovely story i wanted to read more on it....but i still cannot decide wether the end was sad or a happy one because the events were bitter sweet.
