~~~~~I can live in any world as long as I have you. So please...find me again~~~~~

Yukari Hashida sensei weaves a tale of immortal love and devotion that is every bit as beautiful and poignant as her art. Laced with humour, the dramatic plot twists are well executed. We get intrigue, mystery, and romance all wrapped up into one package and gorgeously decorated. The characters' faces are wonderfully expressive and are fully evocative of the mood being set by the prose, so much so that one can practically hear appropriate music playing softly in the background. We wander seemingly aimless yet purposefully with the flustered, reawakened Kounosuke who struggles to reconcile his former life memories with his present, and to identify all of this with the person he is supposed to be now. This is of little consequence however, and rightfully so, as his number one priority is his beloved. He MUST find him, and make good on his dying promise: to love him, and be with him, and only him, for all eternity. His anxiousness is palatable, and while in his frantic haste he seems almost comical, he is also tragic. Hashida manages to pull of this juxtaposition with ease. Just as well, as it gets ever more complicated for our hero. His Kageya is one of these three men all with the surname Kageya, but a woman also looms who claims to be his reincarnated WIFE. And just what is going on with the money his family is supposed to have? And just why was the current mansion burned down in a case of arson? This volume does indeed resolve some of these issues, but not all, and so, while sated somewhat, I was left hungrily anxious for the second volume.

~~~~~I feel nothing...without HIM...~~~~~

I would like to thank Digital Manga Publishing for my review copy.

Yukari Hashida has a very interesting drawing style, airy and light with long fingered hands. She also has a very dry sense of humor which I love. It worked well in Tricky Prince and works just as well here.
Kabuki is the story of Konosuke and Kakeya. In a previous life Konosuke was a rich lord and Kakeya his page. After an attack the two of them commit suicide together and promise to meet again in the next life. The next life happens to be a couple hundred years later in the present day. After a fire destroys his house, Konosuke wakes up in a hospital, in the present day, without any memory of his current life. Instead of being an adult samurai (I'm not sure how old, probably in his twenties?) he is a 17 year old high school student. And there are three men who call themselves Kakeya: one an old man, one middle aged, and one young man.
The plot moves well and has a lot of dry humor to it as Konosuke tries to find "his" Kakeya, adjust to this new life, and to high school. He really doesn't know anything about the present day or who he was before he woke up in the hospital. Plus he's thwarted by the fact that Kakeya is now older than him and therefore has the upper hand in their relationship. And yes since, present day Konosuke is only 17 the "action" is limited and mostly happens in flashback.
Some of the plot here is towards the cliche end but it works well with the humor. The characters are really engaging, especially poor Konosuke who has no clue what's going on. Not that he ever did, it seems. He's a melodramatic character, even in the past, which works nicely with the dry Kakeya. And I LOVED the story about when Kakeya got his memory back. It was short (and so a wee bit confusing) but so sweet and definitely is my favorite part of the book. I'll be waiting for volume 2.
