Kume introduces "Kama-chan" to friendship and to the 5-man soccer club that meets on the school roof.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
I really liked Message to Complex People. It was very focused on character development, and the stories in general just seem very well written. HAL was fun for the science aspect. I imagine the new Code Geass title will probably be pretty popular, though I haven't actually read the other Code Geass series. Vamos-La had some interesting not-quite-cliche characters, but keep in mind that it's primarily (as far as I have read) a school life manga, with a little bit of sports thrown in. Wanna be Hero was a cute story (though if I were him, I think I would just run from that girl!), but the art is definitely an older style.
My opinion: Only two really piqued my interest a bit and those were: C - Message to Complex People
- I want to find out what happened in the stories and Vamos la!
, which looks cute and I'm a sucker for stories about loners who are brought out of their shell~
