This is manga drawn by Hiroaki Samura who is one hell of an artist. Volume 3 was the best one (I'm on 8 right now). We are introduced here to a new geisha character who is frightfully good at what she does.

Delightful. The author wants to let you know that he's going to give a lot of air time to the bad guys. They're going to have stories of their own.
