''House of Five Leaves'' is a manga by Natsume Ono (''Manga/NotSimple'', and ''RistoranteParadiso'') about a washed-up {{ronin}} named Akitsu Masanosuke (nicknamed Masa), who possesses great skill with a blade but also a timid personality that often causes him problems. After continually failing to find work in Edo, he meets a mysterious man named Yaichi (nicknamed Ichi) who takes a liking to Masa and offers him employment as his bodyguard. Yaichi is leader of a group called the "Five Leaves", which kidnaps the heirs of wealthy businesses and holds them to ransom. Though initially reluctant to participate in their shady activities, Masa finds himself becoming more and more involved with the other members, all of whom have their own secrets to hide.

* WhiteHairedPrettyBoy: Yaichi, which is strange, as everyone else has dark hair and Yaichi is by no means old.
** Considering the story happens in a PurelyAestheticEra, maybe he bleaches his hair to helps him in his disguise.

* HookerWithAHeartOfGold HonorBeforeReason: Masa refuses to accept any work he deems beneath a samurai, like manual labour, even though he's too poor to even afford a decent meal at the beginning.
