Sadly, the first issue doesn’t give much insight into these questions. It’s mostly talking, with the suits informing the geisha of their task and laying out the central conflict of the yakuza’s growing power and influence. All this isn’t bad in terms of concept; actually, it’s engaging stuff. The problem is that the dialogue is stilted, and occasionally outright awkward. The characters are also not overly interesting. There’s a bit of difference between them, but not much; aside from the occasional joke from Kimi, many of them speak with a similar voice. Still, there are a few elements that intrigue: the promise of more geisha undercover work, the romance between Kimi and one of the agents, and the twist on the final page all make for intriguing drama. The problem really is in the execution.
