Plot summary

During the day, Kaito works as a florist in a rundown flower shop, but he is actually an assassin trying to make enough money to care for his comatose older brother, who was badly burned in an accident. Kaito receives his assignments from a mysterious and beautiful woman named Suguru. However, although Kaito works as an assassin, he is not without compassion. Later on in the series, Kaito takes in a little boy he names Renge, who has been abused by his parents and other adults.

As the story progesses, more is revealed of Kaito's past. He and his older brother spent much of their childhood at an orphanage that trained young boys to be assassins, and Kaito's older brother was one of the people responsible for picking out the boys with the most potential. In the organization he works for, Kaito is considered to be the top assassin, which causes jealousy and resentment among his rivals.

Main characters

Kaito works as a florist during the day, but he is actually a skilled assassin. He needs money to pay for his older brother's hospital. His signature flower is the Casablanca lily.

Renge is a little boy that Kaito found. When they first meet, he had no name, so Kaito named him "Renge." Renge has difficulties speaking, but he learns new things easily. He is sad that Kaito has to kill others.

Suguru is the mysterious and beautiful woman who gives Kaito his assignments. She usually only appears when Kaito is on a mission or he needs her help.
