Kabuki, Volume 01: Flower - Yukari Hashida The whole Kabuki and past lives deal made me have high expectations about this manga. I thought the plot was going to be way more serious (everything had to be turned into a silly joke), and the drawings weren't very pretty... so I was disappointed. I thought the character's relationship would make up those lacking aspects, but they just don't have any chemistry together, there's no passion. I highly doubt I'll pick up the rest of the volumes.
