Abused indentured servant, Shuri, is purchased by Tatsumi to work at the Hanabishi brothel as a male prostitute. Shuri longs to be of real help and comfort to Tatsumi, whom he regards as a saviour, but Tatsumi misunderstands his efforts as attempts to run away. In retaliation, he treats Shuri cruelly, but as dark secrets of his own past begin to emerge, he is slowly won over by Shuri's devotion. A very typical romance genre plot, but Samamiya Akaza's illustrations are breathtaking.

Despite what people say about Tatsumi, he's still my favourite character. Yeah, in the beginning he was a sadist but the ending in the game, the way he protected and loved Shuri just left me melting.Jeez, now I wanna play Hanakage.

    I'm not sure it's Stockholm Syndrome, because as Shuuji said, he fell in love with him when he first met. And before you guys say that's cuz he was tricked into thinking it, he was already incredibly attached to Tatsumi BEFORE he knew why he was there. I think he DID fall in love in the beginning when they met, and that's why he was able to put with the abuse. I think they do love each other, and I think Tatsumi wasn't so bad in the end either. Idk, maybe it's cuz I've read way way worse, but I really liked this story.

    So tired of the "falling in love w my rapist/abuser" crap. Ugh

  5. SapphireSkorpion May 9, 2016 2:24 am

    I feel like there's a hole in the storyline... I mean that timeskip was too much, and Tatsumi and Shuuji's situation looked like Stockholm syndrome xD

  6. noradeere May 6, 2016 8:05 pm

    I hate these kind of storyline, stupid uke with "I can;t get away from my rapist" behaviour. Makes me sick.

    The fact that i actually find this quite good, in comparison to other more morbid and dark yaoi, feels like i need to lay off the yaoi

  10. Suey13 March 27, 2016 8:11 pm

    As the title says I hated the Seme infact I hated him so much I could even finish the manga he was an asshole and a rapist .

  11. dontbelonghere February 25, 2016 2:16 am

    I wish I could slap them both real hard. Specially the uke... Why do they always make the ukes such airheads?

    The first twist surprised me. After that was a classic case of Stockholm Syndrome. I've read Stockholm Syndrome yaoi before but never have a felt so annoyed by the captive. Still never figured out why Tatsumi was so bipolar and abusive. This page cracked me up: http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/hanamachi_monogatari_hatsuzakura_mau_yoru_no_shitone/mf/v01/c005/28/

    yaoi authors would write a damn story that makes a lick of sense & still have awesome smex scenes.

    Not my favorite Yaoi brothel story, I feel like something is missing within the turning point of the story. I don't hate it but don't quite love it either. The authors story Bloody Mary was a way more pleasurable read but sadly was not a Yoai. Would really like a yaoi version...

      Maybe you should try "Even if this love in captivity". I absolutely love it

      Exactly. I thought at first that the uke only looked air headed, but he was beyond stupid.

    This is the worst story to model as happily ever after. Some stories try to break and create trends but this one here is pushing the boundaries a bit too far.

    A slave is bought to a brothel to be prostitute. After 4 chapters of abuse; physical and emotional where we see how can this boss break his merchandise spirits, hitting them, raping them and turning their lives into hell , we see the young boy is over his head with her tormentor/abuser! The worst thing is that they are running the brothel together , soliciting men and selling the merchandise!! Disgusting! That last sentence when Shuuji [ the young boy] is asking one of the male prostitutes to work hard while they are in vacation .. He is asking that man to work hard on selling his body, generate a profit so that he and his lover enjoy vacations, This is despicable!

    God, this is just shit. That's not sexy or cute, it's just sad, and not in a good way. I'll be the first to admit that I'm into some pretty messed up shit, but I draw the line at straight up rape. There's not even a plot, just a string of yaoi cliches that pretend to be a story.

  18. hataki November 30, 2015 9:40 am

    Too abusive for my tastes. And the story is a bit underdeveloped...

  19. Hibisha November 24, 2015 12:05 am

    Hated it. The seme was an asshat and the uke was like blatantly stupid.

  20. Anonymous October 31, 2015 2:21 pm

    probably because the story isnt that developed all u got out of this was that the seme is abusive and manipulative and the uke is an idiot
