Years later, when Mao is 17 and Hiro is 23, Mao's father remarries a woman who had a child from a previous marriage. Mao feels as if she's lost the place she once belonged to, and so she accepts Hiro's offer to let her move in with him, into the home where they'd both had so many happy memories.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Nothing really interested me this week. There's stuff for anyone interested in judicial systems. The most interesting was Taiyou no Ie, which seemed like it would be a cute little romance.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Tokumei Koukousei - Twins that fight demons using spells. I like the premise, characters and the little bit of comedy mixed in. I think it will get better in time as the two siblings gain more power. Bonnouji - feel good romance series. not too girly and easy to read for any age or gender. Gingitsune - the plot is original and the drawings are really great. I wish there was something more to the plot though. Has potential so willing to see where it goes.
My opinion:
The manga that really piqued my interest is Soukai no Eve, whose art looks really beautiful, and the concept sounds really interesting - I'm always up for survival manga~ If anyone recognizes the artwork, the mangaka also wrote 'Asatte no Houkou.' Bonnouji sounds like a cute slice of life romance that I'd check out~ :3

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1
