While attending to his "model" at a game of War-King, a competition of beauty and fighting prowess, Fergus is treated to the sight of a real fashion model who easily dispenses of Fergus' model. Fergus then sinks into deeper despair now knowing the huge gap that lies between him and the top brands. To make matters worse, his master collapses and is hospitalized that same day.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Higanbana had an interesting start, I'd be interested in seeing where the story goes from there. Out of the others, I think Cloth Road looks worth checking out, simply from the artwork.
I'm sure that B Gata H Kei
will be popular due to the anime. Wow, the art looks freaky in Higanbana no Saku Yoru ni
who was done by the mangakas of Higurashi... Kanpachi
certainly sounds really cute and I like Kannagi. I might want to check out MM!
to see a little bit of how Taro gets beat up. XDTranslated items that need some love/scanlation:xdeathcat
