D-Frag! Vol. 1
by Tomoya Haruno
NOW A HIT ANIME!
Kazama Kenji thinks he’s a delinquent. He’s got the look, the style and the ‘tude to match–he even has a second-rate entourage. Deep down, however, Kazama is a good-hearted kid who finds himself and his loyal gang in over their heads when they stumble upon the Game Development Club. The club’s formidable members are four girls who he might actually be attracted to if they weren’t so freakin’ weird. The girls claim to have otherworldly powers which they use to defeat Kazama’s gang and force him to join their offbeat club. Can Kazama resist the girls’ bizarre charms and return to some semblance of a normal, everyday life…or is it “game over” for our hapless hero? Summary from Goodreads.
This is on my list too and I haven’t read this yet, but I have heard nothing but good things about this manga so I am super excited to read and watch it. Kazama sounds like he’s in for a wild ride and I want to be there to see it. Dealing with one girl who has otherworldly powers is hard enough but four! Kazama and his gang have there work cut out for them.
Arata: The Legend, Vol. 01 (Arata: The Legend #1)
by Yuu Watase
An action-packed shonen fantasy from the acclaimed author of Fushigi Yûgi! In a mythical world where humans and gods co-exist, Arata has the unfortunate honor of being the successor to the matriarchal Hime Clan. This means he has to pretend to be a girl or face death if his true gender is discovered! On the day of his inauguration, an assassination plot forces him to flee—and he somehow winds up in modern-day Japan! Meanwhile, a boy named Arata Hinohara gets sucked into the first Arata’s world and finds himself dealing with people after his life! Summary from Goodreads.
I really loved Fushigi Yûgi so I’m sure I’ll love this manga just as much. It sounds like it’s gong to be an adventure filled with action, drama and a lot of fighting! So in other words super action packed! Arata has his work cut out for him being a girl isn’t easy. But I can’t imagine going from one world to another. This manga sounds so cool! I cant wait to read it!
