Souichi is an art student, and one day he saw an amazing painting at his university that made him want to study under the artist. When he went to learn from the master, though, the man did not accept him. Shortly afterward, he met the man's granddaughter, a blonde-haired, blue-eyed child called Rune. She was a very energetic kid who drew Souichi into playing with her in the surrounding countryside. Soon, Souichi learned the truth--the painting he had been so impressed with at his university was not the grandfather's work, but Rune's. She is the artist from whom he needs to learn!Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

The artist has decided to write a travel journal of his extraordinary daily life in Nepal. Nepal has been important to the artist and an influence on his life ever since he first visited the country. He has been back many times, with his wife and eventually also his son. He was very saddened by the major earthquake in April 2015, and wrote this manga to share with others his experiences of the country, its cities, and especially the people of Nepal who have become his close friends over the years.

When she was in elementary school, Azusa was a magic girl who fought evil in a magical kingdom as the head of a team called Ransel Stars. However, it turned out that her career as a magic girl was actually staged for the entertainment of the stuffed-animal-like people of that magic world. Her group was eventually dismissed, and Azusa graduated from elementary to middle school, where she planned to live a more ordinary life. Unexpectedly, a producer from that magic world has shown up again, asking Azusa to return to her career as a magic girl. That same producer has now followed Asusa to school in the form of a girl with bunny ears. Will Azusa choose to return to her role as a magic girl, and if so, how will she be able to balance her magic girl activity with her new middle school life?Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.
