Kaze Hikaru, Vol. 5by Taeko Watanabe
Sei seeks out Saito Hajime to help her master a difficult sword technique, and Saito is confused by his amorous feelings for Sei, not knowing that she is a girl in disguise. As if things weren't complicated enough, it seems a truly male Sei look-alike has taken a fancy to Saito--and plans on seducing him!

It seems with this one, its either good to okay but still good at times that you can't help but want to read and more an wonder what the MC will get into next and how her character grows. Also the covers are really pretty.
