Japanese cover of volume 1
Nadeshiko-chan, vice president of our little club, and I love Japanese culture! And can you blame me? It's the country with a rich history and culture; samurais, elegant dancing( like kabuki), geisha, and beautiful art. Then it also has anime and manga too! It's courageous, brave, elegant, and cute at the same time! I love it so much! Anyway, I’ve read/watched a range of shounen and shoujo manga/anime Card Captor Sakura, Tsubasa Chronicles, Pandora Hearts, Maid-sama, Naruto, Fruits Basket, Kekkashi, InuYasha, Arisa, Mint na Bokura, Alice in the Country of Hearts, and Cat Street to name a couple. Today, I’m going to talk about the shoujo manga Mademoiselle Butterfly, a tale about a young girl name Butterfly, geisha who loves and admires her childhood friend Chinatsu. The manga follows the life of Butterfly as she tries to get Chinatsu to see her as a lover, not simple as a child( Since there’s an age difference of about 3 years or so).The majority of the manga takes place during the World War II era, though there are a few post-war chapters. It’s also a rather realistic manga and a very sweet story and really demosrtates how much the couple cares and loves each other. It’s also one of the few mangas that have actually made me cry, feeling the pain and desperation that the characters feel. It’s a really great manga with loveable characters, a good storyline, and nice art. I highly recommend it. -Nadeshiko-chan :3
