Set in the Soviet Union, the mysterious girl named Belka and the quiet boy Shchenok help a Socialist Party member to escape from the secret police. Their aim is to infiltrate into a certain mansion that holds what they seek, but the secret police immediately capture the two. Will they be able to find what they seek and endure the torture of the secret police?
To describe Harukaze no Snegurochka in a word: tedious. Though early Soviet Russia is an unusual setting to see in manga it is wasted on this borefest. Like most Westerners I am not overly familiar with this period of history and the narrative did little to keep me filled in on what was going on or who's who, especially considering that almost all the characters featured are based on real figures of the time. The result is a dry mess, I could barely muster enough interest to keep turning the pages and other than it being rather short what kept me going to the end was that I love this mangaka's beautiful art-style, to see it coupled with better story and characters I would recommend Sword of the Immortal instead.
