Crossdressing shojo manga about the Shinsengumi? Now we have something orinigal here! The beginning of this series is a bit awkward and I'm really not sure how this manga will turn out. There are many characters (most of them making not-so-funny gay jokes all the time) and it's difficult to get a good orientation in the story with many historical references. I like the art, although it could be a bit more detailed, particularly backgrounds are very simplistic. The quality of paper could be better but otherwise no complains against how Viz is treating this book. The translator is very careful with maintaining many original japanese words and that I must praise. I hope there will be less shonen-ai undertones in future and more fights, although there are some surprisingly bloody scenes in this volume. NOTE: This series DOES get much better in later volumes.
