Flowers and Bees' is a seinen manga by Moyoco Anno, which was serialized in Monthly Young Magazine from 2000 to 2003 and compiled into seven volumes.
It is a comedy tale of the hapless Komatsu, who is ignored by the ladies, and especially the Kogal Girl Posse headed by Sakura Ota. That is, until he stumbles upon the World of Beautiful Men, a salon headed by a wacky duo of gay men. Hooked on makeovers, and chasing girls, Komatsu bumbles through a world of love hotels, bored housewives and two devil sisters. The Viz media English release is rated 'M' for 'explicit content'.
