So, for a woman, beauty is the most important thing in life. Even if you weren't born pretty, you can still be beautified through surgery, for a price.

What has happened in Takumi's life to make him feel this way? Will Mami be able to convince him, or will she just have to admit that beauty is truly the most important thing in life?

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
The only one that really stood out this week was Nanba Deadend. I'm not usually into teen delinquent stories, but this one was hilarious (deliberately so). Also, I liked the art.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Good looking series this week.
Cross and Crime – very adult romance series unlike the typical high school boy meets girl type story. Story starts out with the main character getting raped and the deception that follows. Very gritty but interesting at the same time. Hime Habaki – little girl with a giant sword. Not as sexy as it sounds when you find out she will cut you in half in a blink. Nice easy read for anyone. Lost Man – a different kind of sports series that moves away from teenagers. The plot is more realistic with an adult using his incredible soccer skills to bend the rules of the professional scene for exorbitant amounts of money. You also get to learn about the technical and behind the scene side of the sport which makes it interesting to read.

My opinion:
Nanba Deadend sounds the best of the bunch. I'm always interested in reading manga about those who live a double life, especially if it has some comedy mixed in~
