Several years later, Jin is living with Zen, her child with Masashi, and remains in hiding. Zen has development issues and cannot communicate nearly as well as someone her age should. However, the same abnormality that hinders her also allows her to instantly mimic movements and she's able to copy martial arts techniques of such greats as Bruce Lee by simply watching a video. When Jin is diagnosed with Leukemia, Zen and Mun, her childhood friend and caretaker, try to raise money for the expensive treatment. They find Jin’s notebook that lists all the money that people owe her and start collecting them without Jin’s knowledge. Little do they know that the list is from when she still worked under Number 8 and when they start going around town, it raises red flags and the dark past comes back to haunt them.

This is a story of a group of college-age people who struggle with gender and sexual identity. Yuki (nicknamed Yoshiki) is a girl, but she is terrible at 'being feminine.' She mostly dresses like a boy and is often mistaken as one. However, she has to wear a skirt and imagine being dominated by a guy in order to masturbate. Nagao Mikako seems young and innocent, and she uses that apparent innocence to sell her body as a fake 15-year-old. She knows her youthfulness can't last forever, but she enjoys tricking the men. Her friends have no idea of her sexual habits and believe her to be sweet and sheltered. Aiba Kaito is a pretty good-looking guy, but he wants to be Nagao Mikako. He often dresses as a girl, picking out clothes that mimic Mikako's style. Though he's into cross-dressing, he is still attracted to women. Will these young adults and their friends be able to handle their 'guilty secrets' and muddle their way through this confusing period of their lives?

Amou Academy is an enormous educational establishment that boasts of 200,000 students and a gigantic campus that is actually its own city. Sakai Anzu is one of two members of the Detective agency operating on campus and is a normal high school girl. On the other hand, the other member, Yuri, is something out of this world. Yuri normally looks like a young girl but she is able to use sorcery to transform herself into a more mature appearance where she gains the ability to solve mysteries and crimes. There is one drawback however and it is that in that state, Yuri needs sexual energy to use her deducing skills and Anzu is there to give into her erotic needs.

  3. Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
I don't really have much to say about this week's. Himegoto was the most interesting, but it has a lot of sexual content (That can be a pro or a con depending on your point of view). Terao was cute, but very silly.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Chocolate Fighter - Incredibly cool storyline and concept. Little bit of adult scenario but well done in terms of drawing, characters, tempo of storyline and general interestingness.

Sobakkasu - Really great series and it was so interesting to me that I actually read the entire series from beginning to end. I really hope someone translates the entire thing so that other people can read it.

Yuri Tantei - storyline wise, not my favorite genre but I wanted to mention that the artwork is very good.

Now for Midori-Mori's take on his manga:
Quote:
This week's series were quite interesting. If you want a 'small' twist on your usual idea of a magic-using girl, Mahou-Pantsu-Ore is a good choice. Again, for the more mature eyes, Lemon would be a nice read. Enjoy.

My opinion:
Chocolate Fighter actually sounds interesting, although I don't know how much storyline can progress and how satisfying storyline there can be if it's only one volume long. Himegoto really reminds me of Hourou Musuko so I'd think it would be a good read for those interested in that series. Hopefully someone will pick this series up.

I'm no fan of detective stuff, but Yuri Tantei Yurianzu got enough fan-service to make it readable :)

Lemon no Kaori was a good quick read. It had some good moments. Well and of course sex :)

Chocolate Fighter sounds pretty awesome oO Gonna take a look into that now~
