The 6 young girls that the main protagonist is producing are the tea store’s girl, the martial art girl, Holland’s firm’s girl, merchant’s daughter, courtesan, and a kunoichi. Each of them has their own respective life and they are involving the Kansei’s Edo in the turmoil as Japan and the world (?) first’s “Idol”.
