Foreign exchange student Alyosha Stalina has been attending a Japanese high school for 3 months. She comes from the nation of Solessia but she is yet to fit in with the other students because of her unfriendly demeanor and cold personality. Rightfully so because Alyosha is a trained assassin that has been murdering people since she was 5 years old. Officials in Estolakia, a country devastated by the attacks from Solessia, found the orphaned Alyosha and trained her as a top notch assassin to work against Solessia.

Her most recent and soon to be last mission is to murder the president of Solessia who is to attend the high school she has infiltrated for 3 months. However, the mission is aborted and she is ordered to remain a student. The only thing Alyosha knows how to do is to be an assassin and has never learned how to be a normal teenage girl. Will Alyosha be able to complete her most difficult mission yet?

  1. The name of the manga series
  2. A summary of the series
  3. Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Koi Ken was pretty cute. The main character seemed like a pretty goodnatured, if awkward, guy. Kiba Kiba was a quick, fun read too, but, at the end, there does seem like a lot of story left that they could expand on. Maybe it will be serialized one day. Execution Girl looks like it could be interesting from the first chapter. The two characters introduced didn't really seem cliched, so I'd like to read more of it sometime.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Two series interested me this week. One was Alyosha. It would be interesting to see how the cold assassin teenager adapts to the life of normality. The other series is Urameshi Work. The idea that youkai live among us and blends in by working is cool. Would like to see what other monsters are disguised among us.
My opinion: Although the art for Alyosha doesn't particularly look that nice, the premise looks interesting: how a high school assassin would deal with school. Glamorous looks like a cute seinen romance, although it might be a bit too ecchi for my taste... :s Koi Ken also looks like another cute seinen romance with some ecchi that I'd want to check out~

"Alyosha Stalina"... I now want to see this travesty with my own eyes.

Alyosha is not only boy's name, it can be girl's too. I worked with ukrainian girl named Alyosha few years ago.

Yeah the name is stupid like that Alyosha Stalina (thx god they didn't name her Pitina ot Medvedeva)

And what the hell o0 the president of her former country is a student in japanese school... how stupider this can become o0

"Alyosha" is 100% boy's name. Either you are mistaking "Alyosha" for "Alyona"(girl's name) or your co-worker wasn't a girl to begin with.

Alyosha can be a girl's name. But it's rare.
And the former president was to visit her school but didn't do it.
#9. by cmertb ()

If a girl has an extremely rare name "Aleksiya", then the appropriate diminutive would indeed be "Alyosha". Still, another -1 to the mangaka for not knowing the difference between a name and its diminutive form.

BTW, Solessian president's name is Pushkin. Is that close enough to Putin, or was it inspired by Alexander Pushkin? XD

But some names there are just too weird. Some are easy to guess, like Sadoufunikofu = Sadovnikov, Betorofu = Vetrov, but what to make of Buvarirefu?
#10. by NNM ()
Posted on Jul 9, 2010
You are using it wrong:

Aleksey - Alekseyka, Alyoha, Lyoha, Alyosha, Lyosha, Alyonya, Lyonya, Alyoka, Aleka, Lyoka, Leka, Alya, Alyunya, Lyunya, Lekseyka, Leksa, Leksya, Leksa, Leksya

Aleksina/Aleksiya: Aleksinka, Alya, Sina, Lesya, Inna

Alyosha can't be girl's name

Buvarirefu = Bukvarev?
#11. by cmertb ()
Posted on Jul 9, 2010
I don't think the rules on diminutive names are codified as strictly as you imply. I see nothing wrong with parents/friends calling a girl named Aleksiya "Alyosha". Same as Aleksandr/Aleksandra pair have the same diminutive "Sasha". And there's now anecdotal evidence that girls with this name do exist.

Bukvarev would only work on the assumption of a typo. Buvarirefu lacks a k- syllable and has an extra ri syllable. I'm not ready to override the original so drastically. XD
