Rookie manga author Himesaki Momoko, an introverted high school girl, brought her proudest work to the publisher to see if they would put it in one of their shoujo magazines. Momoko’s shyness and nervousness caused a misunderstanding and, although her work was highly praised and given a spot in the magazine, it was published in a moe magazine instead of a shoujo one. Feeling down on herself, Momoko soon learns that her classmate and crush, Igarashi, despises the moe genre, but, for an odd reason, takes interest in the work Momoko did. Since her work was published under a different name, Igarashi didn’t find out it was Momoko’s series, but she has to do something before he finds out that she's an author for a moe magazine and gets totally hated.

Twenty year old Ibuki Yamato is a man who failed his college exam twice, making him now a 2-year ronin. Even though he is on his way to go live at a dormitory owned by his childhood friend’s family, misfortune comes to him during his trip through Tokyo. On the train, he accidentally falls into the bosom of a female cosplayer. At a bookstore, the store clerk innocently tells him not to loiter, where her persistence causes him to rip the store-owned book he was reading. As he rushes to get money to pay for the book, he bumps into a delivery girl, which causes him to pay even more money, before he’s called a criminal. Though he is fortunate enough to help two ladies take back their belongings, which were stolen by a purse-napper, Yamato is dead tired when he reaches the dormitory.

But his troubles are not at all over, when he finds out that the female cosplayer, the store clerk girl, the delivery girl and the two other ladies from before are all residents of this dormitory as well. Adding to this fact, all of these girls are foreigners who have come to study abroad. Will Yamato find peace under a roof with five other girls of different backgrounds?

Ryouko is a pretty prudish young teenager, who doesn't even like romantic dramas on tv. One day after school, Ryouko sees her friend Miki crying while an attractive young teacher has sex with her. Instead of helping Miki, Ryouko feels frozen to the spot. Eventually, seeing Miki like that spurs her to seek out a sexual experience of her own with a boy who asks her out. Unfortunately, her tentative steps towards exploring sex quickly spiral into a nightmare. In the meantime, Miki can't figure out how to handle her own sexuality. While it may not have started out as consensual, her body enjoys sex with her teacher, and she can't help coming back for more. She can't figure out whether she really wants him or a nice boy her own age. Unfortunately for her, the adult man who is taking advantage of her sees her as nothing more than a sex toy. Will these two young girls find a way to navigate the dangerous and confusing world of sex?

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
IWGP-R was my favorite this week. It's a part of a really popular series, so I imagine it will have a lot of readers. I've never read/watched the other IWGP series, though, so I have no idea how it stacks up against the rest.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Chiguhagu Lovers - definitely my favorite from this week. Great artwork and all the characters are lovable and easy to connect with. Storyline is well constructed and picks up quickly and the comedy keeps the tension lighthearted.
Now for Midori-Mori's take on his manga:
Quote:
This week's series bloomed like flowers for me. Hanayome no Kaze is a nice series where you can see the girl's pride in being a bride. But I loved Salad Bowl. Though its scenario is reminiscent of the cliche manga we know, "Love Hina," I'm sure you'll love this series just the same with all its assorted characters.

My opinion:
Nothing particularly piqued my interest.


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
myao - Circle Game: Chapter 1
persona_1 - Mahou Shoujo Pretty Bell: Chapter 1
Ju-da-su - Boukoku no Siegfried ~Das Nibelungenlied~: Chapter 1

Momoka Comicalized was another one of these "I wanna be a mangaka" titles coupled with some good fanservice scenes :) But that's about it... I wouldn't really recommend it as there isn't much charackter development. The romance falls short too^^

I didn't know Chiguhagu Lovers ended in 15 chapters...
I read the oneshots and was somewhat hooked, though the serialization started off a bit different, so I didn't read that past c3... But definitely a good read for Kendo lovers.

And of course Salad-bo oO Epic series in terms of fanservice. But that's all you will find there :) It has your usual harem plot, with no development until the last two chapters. Still worth a peek for the boobs :)
