A really good Seinen anime by Natsume Ono. The animation is really unique and is very detailed. It's really beautiful. There's a tiny bit of blood, but it's not gruesome. There isn't any nudity either. There are twelve episodes and eight manga books. They have all of the episodes on Hulu. It's a story about Akitsu Masanosuke, a shy and nervous, yet skilled extremely Samurai. He often gets fired from his jobs, and so Masa tries looking for a new job. He passes by Yaichi, the leader of a group calling itself "The Five Leaves". Yaichi meets Masa, so he hires him as a bodyguard. The group kidnaps business' heirs and make them pay ransom money. That's where Masa meets Otake, Umenzou, and Matsukichi, three more members of the group. With difficulties, Akitsu eventually becomes part of the The Five Leaves.
Even though I'm a girl, I thought House of Five Leaves was nice.
