Kiyoko Ranman
潔子爛漫

"Even if this way is a thorny path, this is my choice. I’ll regret nothing.”
Kiyoko Ranman is a story about a lady who keeps acting with pride as a daughter of Samurai family and her faithful love with her childhood friend.
It’s 1895 and Japan is riding high on the country’s recent victory in the Sino-Japanese War. Though raised by her parents and grandmother to take special pride in her warrior ancestry, Kudo Kiyoko, the daughter of a family of former samurai, lives a modest life. Kiyoko’s childhood friend Arima Sota is a doctor who has watched over her since she was born. The two were raised like brother and sister.
But when Kiyoko’s father is arrested and falsely imprisoned in an embezzlement case, everything is suddenly turned upside down. Labeled the daughter of a corrupt teacher, Kiyoko and her family are forced to take drastic measures. Arima bows his head and asks the wealthy merchant Shibusawa Yahiko for financial assistance to save the family. No one could ever have imagined that this action would change Kiyoko’s future in such a drastic way.
This tale of “love and pride” hinges on a daughter of samurai who lived in the Meiji Period, her childhood friend whose love for her is unending, and a business tycoon who is a rank amateur when it comes to matters of romance.
