This 4-koma style manga follows the daily life of three girls who are starting their college life. Kotone is a little sloppy and dependent, Koyo is pretty quiet and easily overlooked, and Nene is cute and very well put together. The three of them end up as neighbors, and they end up spending lots of time together.Thanks go to DrCoke for the summary.

This is a collection of 4 short stories. One story tells of the ghost of a pretty girl who died too young.

Another features a girl who is hosting a genius boy in her home, where she lived alone. She was looking forward to his arrival, but he seems to be unexpectedly unsociable and unfriendly. Is there some way the relationship between them can grow?Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Ihoujin was my favorite this week. The situations the main character and Hammurabi are involved in were much more serious than I expected! I liked the ghost story in Mou Tamago wa Korosanai. Joshi Daisei Seikatsu Youshiki was nothing new, just another moe slice of life 4-koma, though this time featuring college-age women who look like little girls.
My opinion: Ihoujin
- A mix between historical and modern. If you believe in the saying "an eye for an eye" then check this manga out.Joshi Daisei Seikatsu Youshiki
- If you like slice of life manga with some moe thrown in, then you may want to take a look at this manga.Mou Tamago wa Korosanai
- If you're in the mood for some short stories featuring some supernatural elements, then you should check this manga out. It's also from the mangaka of Hakushaku to Yousei, which was made into an anime.Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
