To help Azusa's (and her father's) dream come true, Keita agrees to trade places with her during the baseball games. Soon "Hirayama Keita" becomes a popular player, and "he" begins to move towards a career in pro baseball. How long can Keita and Azusa keep up the act? What will happen when people find out?

He claims that the world is going to be destroyed on July 21st, 1999, and something at the Occult Academy is going to trigger it. To find that trigger, he comes armed with a cell phone that shows a simulation of the future given the immediate destruction of the object photographed.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
My favorite this week was Gunparade Orchestra. It's not a particularly new idea (teenage mecha pilots fighting aliens), but it was still kind of interesting. Occult Academy starts out pretty good. I watched the anime, and enjoyed it up until the last few episodes. The whole ending kind of ruined my opinion of the entire story in general, though, because it was so ridiculous and out of left field. Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku is a gag manga, it's pretty funny. Idol-A wasn't too bad, but I had a really hard time believing that a popular high-school-age gravure model could pass flawlessly as a boy by cutting her hair and binding her chest (and vice versa).
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Baketeriya - really liked the idea of the spirits being unfriendly and hungry for the main character. Splash of comedy mixed with the typical Shounen manga. Waltz - a bit on the graphic side with blood splattering everywhere but pretty interesting in my opinion
My opinion:
I'm interested to see how a gravure model can also be a baseball player in Idol A. Adachi is supposed to be a really good mangaka so maybe someone will pick this manga up. Waltz also looks action packed and like a good mystery.
