Hime-dol!! by KYOU Kazurou
Hime-dol!! Genre: Rom-com, School Life Author: Kyou Kazurou Serialization: Weekly Shounen Jump Publisher: Shueisha Summary(from Mangaupdate): Inspired by his grandfather's skills, Kiriyama Kyoutarou's dream is to become a hairstylist. For that he enrolls in Yumemino Private Academy, also known as Tech High, the first combined technical high school in the country, more specifically he enrolls in the Beautician Department. Little did he know that his neighbor in class is Samejima Alto, an infamous female delinquent renowned for her monstrous strength. Even after that meeting his school life proves to be quite eventful as he stumbles upon a mysterious idol's secretive practice, discovers a connection with the biggest up-and-coming idol around and receives a rather unexpected request from the fearful Samejima - "Can you turn me into an idol!?". A story about following your dreams, even when everything and everyone seems to believe they're unfit considering who you are.
Didn't have high expectations for this one after reading the one shot, but the serialization looks great. The art, the school and backstory remind me a bit of Shokugeki No Soma, but this one has a lot more chances to go in a different direction. Hopefully Casanova will keep up with this one.
I liked the first 2 chapters so far. The setting up of the story was well done. Obviously an improved version of the one shot. The art isn't that awesome but it's somehow fitting to the genre, and I expect the author to improve in the future.
And yes, i totally remembered Souma with the whole special High School thing, and a little bit of Nisekoi, too. We all know the success of those series in WSJ right now, so I can at least be optimistic this can survive.
