   schema:description "Volume 7: "Once known as "Sei the Drifter," Yaichi has maintained a coldhearted outlook on life, a despair rooted in the trauma of a kidnapping that occurred years ago. With his past now coming to light, an air of restlessness pervades the Five Leaves. At the same time, Masanosuke must make a difficult decision when confronted with his brother Bunnosuke's complicated circumstances." -- Publisher's description"@en ;
   schema:description "Volume 2: "Masterless samurai Akitsu Masanosuke was persuaded to join the kidnapping ring "Five Leaves" after drawing the interest of its charismatic leader, Yaichi. At Yaichi's prompting he becomes employed as a guard for Katsuraya, a house of ill repute. However, after succumbing to illness he withdraws to the country villa of Goinkyo, an associate of the Five Leaves, to recover. While there, he inadvertently learns more about the history of the gang--particularly the gruff but kind Ume--and about the cords that bind each of the members to their pasts. But the more Masa learns, the more the mysteries deepen... " -- Publisher's description"@en ;
   schema:description "Volume 4: "With Masa having joined the crew, the fragile bonds between the members of the Five Leaves begin to change. Further changes are promised by the arrival of Ginta, a self-styled "negotiator" who learns of the existence of the Five Leaves and offers them his services. Meanwhile, the pressure on Yaichi increases as the members of his old gang continue to track him down. Burdened by the weight of his hidden past, his impervious façade begins to crack." -- Publisher's description"@en ;
   schema:description "Volume 5: "As Yaichi's pursuers draw closer, Yagi also steps up his investigation into the man and his past. Masa, who's caught between them, becomes privy to secrets about Yaichi unknown even to the original members of the Five Leaves. Matters grow even more complicated as Masa's younger brother becomes increasingly entangled in his difficulties back home. Slowly but steadily, the pressure on the Five Leaves mounts." -- Publisher's description"@en ;
   schema:description "Volume 3: "Just as Masa is settling into his new life as part of the Five Leaves, the gang's spy, Matsukichi, vanishes. After discovering that the reticent Matsu's disappearance is linked to an unresolved difficulty in his past, Masa decides to try to help him. To do so, he enlists the aid of the samurai Yagi. However, Yaichi, the head of the Five Leaves, is not at all pleased with Yagi's involvement. It soon becomes clear that the two men share a common past--and that something dire has shattered the bond between them." -- Publisher's description"@en ;
   schema:description "Volume 8: "Masanosuke gives Bunnosuke one last piece of advice as his older brother. Rumors about the Five Leaves are spreading around town, leaving the members of the crew plagued with suspicion as to who is responsible. Meanwhile, Yaichi is finally run to ground by Jin, his former boss, at the same time that his past is uncovered by the superintendent Yagi. With the House of Five Leaves coming to an end, will the precious bonds of their friendships survive?" -- Publisher's description"@en ;
   schema:description "Volume 6: "Although Masa has uncovered some alarming secrets about Yaichi, he decides not to share them with the other members of the Five Leaves. Yet despite his caution, the bonds between the gang members continue to fray. And now, in the restless interlude before the crew's final job, it seems that the sins of Yaichi's past are finally catching up to him." -- Publisher's description"@en ;
