    Raws are out and translated, just waiting on scanlations. This actually looks cute, a romantic-comedy with a little fanservice is a nice "change of pace" for Jump. Over the last year or so they seem to have forgotten they have a long history of RomCom series, Kano's Pretty Face not the least of them.

    I'm not sure anyone else notices it... but this is the first time I see Kanou using the "funny faces" on the heroine extensively.

    I mean sure, Rina in Pretty Face and Aika in Mx0 does have those funny faces every now and then, but it's not used as much as it is in Harisugawa.

    I just hope this one can stay afloat, and that the ToC position in 8 weeks will be decent~

    It's nice to see the romance series that focuses on both male and female characters. Most of romance series only focuses on one side.

    First chapter is already on Red Hawk Scans:

    I like how Mx0 was referenced on Harisugawa's shirt on that flashback.

    Re: [New] Kagami no Kuni no Harisugawa by Kano Yasuhiro

    I originally wanted to drop this after being instantly turned off by the fanservice in the first page, but I thought I'd read all 50-something pages to give it a fair assessment.

    It has such pretty art, and the story is fairly unique. But the setting and situations are so cookie-cutter that I was shaking my head the entire time. I totally predicted that an accidentally-watch-someone-shower scene would happen, but I had no idea there would be one in the first chapter. We have the guy-likes-girl-who-totally-likes-him-back scenario that we've seen a thousand times. The guy is your typical modest teenage boy with some serious blood pressure problems. The girl is your typical girl who likes to buy MacGuffins and loves to strip down to her bra and panties (which she will be doing a lot of during this series' run). The story would be fascinating if Yasuhiro stopped pandering. I know he doesn't want to be canceled, but inserting that much fanservice into the first chapter just makes him seem desperate.

    However, the end of the chapter did interest me. Not the garbage with the Peeping Tom with the video camera. The two characters switching places. I hope the next chapter is story-based, and we get to learn more about the mechanics of the mirror. I'll keep reading for now, but simply because I loved Mx0 and I know Yasuhiro can do better.

    Wow that seemed negative ;_;. But I really do love Yasuhiro. I'm glad he's back in WSJ!

    Wow, that was just brilliant. Granted, the cliche is overused, but remember, it's how you use it. And I'd say the author executed it pretty well. I just hope it doesn't get cancelled. Just loved the sheer hilarity of this chapter. I haven't read a RomCom that made me laugh so much that my stomach hurts since Nyankoi.

    Re: [New] Kagami no Kuni no Harisugawa by Kano Yasuhiro

    I definitely agree that while many things about the first chapter were cliched, it was executed really well. Of Kanou's works I've only read Loop, so this was really different, too.

    As a girl I could do without the panty shots and all, but oh wells... Other than that the story seems interesting - the ending suggests that one of them has to be in the mirror and the other in the outside world at any one time, so I wonder how that's going to work out, and eventually what sort of method they'll need to employ to get both of them out of the mirror for good.

    Besides the panty-shots, shower-scene and all the talk about other "perverted" things, this was pretty good. The mirror was pretty interesting, but I don't know how he could keep it that way for a long time. I'll wait and see how this developes

    Kagami 2 Scans by RHS is out.

    I'm a bit curious on whether Tetsu will get hungry in there or not... and if he can bring items from outside in.

    Good chapter and great character development too. I certainly have faith in the author. He really executes his cliches well.

    Well i really didn't like much of the premise of the story.

    I will read a couple chapters more to decide if i drop it or not.

    The first two chapters were not bad, but not really great. I'm not really sold yet. The story is interesting, but RomCom lives and dies on the characters. While I don't dislike either, nothing about them seems very interesting. Certainly to early to judge though. I will definitely read at least a volume before I decide what I think. All it can take is a few more chapters to build some attachment to Harisugawa and Mao.

    I don't think we'll ever really get away from cliches, I am expecting a typical visual novel style plot. That's not really a bad thing, as long as it's emotionally believable, the cliches will be easy to forget.

    Pretty Face was very racy, the fanservice does not surprise me. It's somewhat refreshing in a way. Except for Medaka, the current Jump line up seem to suggest that life is as chaste and awkward as an endless middle school mixer
