Between taking care of her brother, feeding them both, and housework, she doesn't have much time for a usual teenage social life. One day, she meets someone else who does not present his true self at school: a quiet, glasses-wearing boy called Miyamura. She'd assumed he was bookish, and possibly an otaku, but Hori couldn't have been more wrong. Outside of school, Miyamura is a friendly guy with many piercings, and he's not very good at academics. Now the two of them have someone with whom they can share both halves of their lives!

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Hiromiya was the most interesting this week. I only had 1 chapter to read, but it seemed like it might be a neat story about how people portray themselves. Kaze no Iro seemed pretty interesting, too, at least from the first chapter.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Chotto Kawaii Iron Maiden - 4 koma series about a teenage girl who joins the school's torture club. I think it's funny and I thought the jokes were pretty good.
Now for Midori-Mori's take on his manga:
Quote:
Another week of manga summaries, and some good series I have read. This week, I found some point of interest in the two series I read. But if I had to give an opinion, Majoma was quite nice to read. It may have some cliche elements, but I can say that there's something that will catch your eyes. Try it out. The same for 9 love letters; a bit for the mature eyes, but there's indeed love in the story...

My opinion:
Reading about leading a double life in Horimiya appeals to my interest, but the one that really piqued my interest was Kaze no Iro due to its drama and sadness. I feel sorry for the ninja that chose the wrong life to take over in Saranin Man, although it may be interesting to see how he may change his life around.

Kaze no Iro had a very emotional start and I liked it. Though the korain art needs a bit of time to get used to.

Horimiya had an awesome first volume. Need more <3
Definitely worth the read.

Bloomed in action and Mizutama Rondou were nothing special....

I'm going to check out 9 love letters now~
