Summary of Butterfly Beast:
1635, the beginning of the Edo era. Japan is enjoying a fragile peace, after a long period of feudal wars, but in the shadows the warriors left behind are still rampant. In the capital's pleasure district, a former kunoichi lives a double life. She calls herself Kochô, a high-ranking courtesan by day, and becomes Ochô, an assassin, by night. Her mission: to relentlessly hunt down her former brothers-in-arms who have gone rogue.
Follow the fascinating Kochô in this sulphurous double life, through the magnificent draws and the thrilling scenario of Yuka Nagate.
