Summary

WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!


Butterfly Lovers


Set in the Heian Age, this is the tale of Yukiwaka and Kirine, two young men who have both come to the capital to learn Bugaku (court dance). They are both learning together, and grow close as siblings as they aim to become official Bugaku dancers.

However, Kirine has a secret. She is actually a young lady from Hitachi. For two years, with her father’s blessing, she has come to the capital in pursuit of her ambition to learn Bugaku. However, women are not allowed to learn Bugaku, so she has concealed her identity and pretends to be a young man.

Kirine secretly falls in love with Yukiwaka, but continues to keep her secret from him. Then one day during rehearsals he realizes she is a woman. She is overjoyed to not have to deceive him anymore, and admits her feelings to him. The two fall in love.

It is then that a messenger arrives with the news that Kirine’s father is deathly ill. Kirine and Yukiwaka make a vow to meet again, and Kirine returns home. Her father dies suddenly, and in order to protect the family, Kirine’s uncle determines to marry her to his son. Despairing, Kirine commits suicide. Shortly after that, Yukiwaka sets out to find her....
