New Manga!

So, I went to the mall yesterday, off to meet a friend in Borders. She was waaaaay late, so I went to the manga (graphic novels) section and browsed. To my happy, happy suprise, there is a new manga out that I advise you all see! >=3

From the author and artist of Full Moon Wo Sagashite (which also happens to be a great manga), Shinshi Doumei Cross(紳士同盟† Shinshi Dōmei Kurosu), literally translated as The Gentlemen Alliance, is the newest set of eye opening manga created by Arina Tanemura~

I sat a read the manga. So I can say to you all that it's a fun read, and if you buy it, it comes with a beautiful 2-sided poster for your viewing action! =D

Here's a summary: Haine Otomiya is a 15-year-old high school girl who goes to an elite private school called the Imperial Academy. She was once a gang member, but this changed when she met Shizumasa Tōgū, who told her to live life how she wanted to. From that point on, Haine has worked to make her life better, and stopped being a gang member. She fell in love with Shizumasa and entered the Imperial Academy because of him.
Now, Shizumasa is the Koutei (emperor) of the school, which means that not only is he the student council president, but the one who everyone in the school looks up to. Through various circumstances Haine is tricked into becoming his bodyguard and joins the Student Council. Will Haine get Shizumasa to love her?

It's very different from Tanemura-san's other stories, which take a more serious side. Shinshi Doumei Cross is more of a school comedy, and Tanemura-san has said that it is that kind of manga that she has most wanted to write.

So Meyume says: "Buy, Read, Enjoy, and Stare! Both Shinshi Doumei Cross and Full Moon Wo Sagashite."
