It’s the middle of the Meiji Era and our heroine, little Suzu, is sold to the red lights district. However, the rich heir of a dry goods store, Tsugaru, buys her freedom for no apparent reason. She is deeply grateful for being saved but doesn’t understand why he paid so much money for her. The only explanation he offers is “We have a bond.” She tries to unravel the mystery of his feelings and gradually grows from a little girl to a young woman, always by his side.
This manga made me uncomfortable. I never, ever got the idea that the ml has any feelings for the fl (as of now she is still a child) and that was my initial major concern. However, other things got to me. The ml's best friend thought his friend was into little girls and only replied "Oh, so you lean that way". Like it's just a normal kink and not something horrific and despicable. The same bf went to visit prostitutes regularly and heard some of them died and just said something like "Oh well, that's bound to happen in the red light district." Like those women he visits are worth less and somehow disposable. This is a character we are supposed to like and he is a pretty regular character as well. Throughout this manga just has a very "relaxed" attitude towards relationships between children and adults. Even though the ml isn't in love with the fl yet, it doesn't feel like anyone would thinks it's a crime - more just a scandal.
