Young Levius has lost a lot in the war. His father is dead, and he lost an arm trying to protect his mother, who is comatose. Now his arm has been replaced by a metal prosthetic, and his Uncle Zacks has taken him in. The traumatized Levius soon begins to take an interest in cyborg boxing, and his uncle helps him get involved in the brutal sport. [tethysdust]Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

22-year-old Haijima Hitsugi has been transferred to the unusual murders section, where he will investigate mysteries with Utagata Moko. Moko is actually the same age as he is, but she looks, dresses, and acts like a little girl. While dealing with Moko is basically like taking care of a child, she is also brilliant at unraveling some pretty twisted murder mysteries.Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

ARATA Mai x Magica Quartet

This peaceful slice-of-life story features a future for the magic girls of Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica. Tomoe Mami is 31 years old, a single temp worker, and is still friends with her fellow magical girls--Madoka, Homura, Sayaka, and Kyoko. Now, instead of fighting witches, she and the others are more concerned with ordinary things, like finding a husband or avoiding weight gain.Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Levius was my favorite this week, for its interesting style of art and storytelling. Moko had some interesting murder mysteries, but I'm not a fan of the "adult woman who is basically a small child" cliche. The Tomoe Mami one was disappointing, since it managed to remove everything that made the anime interesting to me.
My opinion: Levius
- This sounds the most interesting of the three this week. If you're interested to see what cyber boxing is about, then you should check it out.Moko to Yuganda Satsujinki domo
- On the other hand, if you're in the mood for a mix of comedy and mystery, then you may want to read this manga instead.Tomoe Mami no Heibon na Nichijou
- However, if you're a fan of magical girls, and are a big fan of the anime, then this would be a must read then..Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
