Rensou (2)


Our story continues from Volume 1 as Soutarou attempts to determine just why Koinosuke acts so cold to him–but if Koinosuke is distant, then his brother Ainosuke is becoming anything but…



Set in the Edo Period of Japan against the backdrop of the kabuki theatre scene, Rensou is the story of the developing relationship between Soumaru, an orphan in search of his long-lost brother, and Koinosuke, a prominent actor in a traveling kabuki troupe whom Soumaru falls for at first sight. WARNING: this work is a piece of historical fiction and references practices common to the era, such as underage prostitution, as well as death of a relatively major character. Caveat lector.
