17sai. Joshikousei Kankin Satsujin (17歳。 女子高生監禁殺人)By:Demographics:
FUJII Seiji x KAMATA Youji
4 Volumes (Complete)Manga Details Page: HereTranslations: NoneScanlations: None
This is the story of a terrible crime committed against a 17-old-girl, committed, in part, by 17-year-old boys. Why did such a thing happen? Why was no one able to prevent it?
In the beginning, high school boys Hiroki and his friend Takashi are rescued from bullying by a notorious gangster, Miyamoto. At first, they are thrilled to be under his protection, and cheerfully run off anyone who threatens them with the mere mention of Miyamoto's name. Soon, they learn that there is a lot more to being in Miyamoto's gang than just being protected. In return, they're expected to offer loyalty and obedience, or face possibly deadly consequences. This becomes harder as the violence and the crimes they find themselves committing begins to escalate.
One night, they kidnap a high school girl, Sachiko. Now Hiroki has two battles to face. Internally, he faces the dissonance between his sense of self-preservation and his conscience. Externally, Sachiko's twin sister Miki, who goes to Hiroki's high school, her parents and the police are searching for the missing girl. Will Sachiko ever return home? What kind of person--or monster--will Hiroki become?Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
There were some pretty intense manga this week. The weirdest, by far, was Kushiyaki P. If small animals being dismembered bothers you, you should probably give this one a pass. 17sai is actually pretty engrossing, but, from the title, I'm guessing the ending is going to be horrifically sad. It's interesting to see a crime story from the point of view of an unwilling perpetrator. Jun to Ai was sort of like a teen romance novel (but with a couple of scenes of fairly explicit sex). A lot more time is spent on talking about feelings and "will they-won't they" end up together than on any sexual content, though. Paradise Paradox mixes some common tropes. There's the over-enthusiastic lesbian girl looking for her soulmate, and the whole idea of fairy-tale land portals. It came together into an entertaining story, though. Enma Gavel was the most generic one I read this week. It was pretty standard demon-fighting shounen.
Here's a note from vyc:
Great series this week. Check them out Tiny Prinius - comedy where the last human alive is trapped in a toy body. Travels through space with his crew consisting of a robot maid and a random ghost. How cool is that. Nagisa chan no kareshi - romantic comedy. it's actually more comedy than love than you might think. well worth giving a try. Syura no mon - loved reading the chapters. the storyline was solid, the characters were very developed and just a great series. Wouldnt expect anything less from such a great and famous author. Definitely pick this up.
My opinion: 17sai. Joshikousei Kankin Satsujin
sounds good, although tragic like tethy said... Jun to Ai
sounds like an interesting romance story. Nagisa-chan no Kareshi
sounds like a cute fluffy manga that'd make you go d'aww~ Translated items that need some love/scanlation:sonsofloki
