Also, the girls often try out new fad technology like face-hiding necklaces or elaborate meal flavored gum. They might even be found using a computer to go hang out with a friend in the afterlife. It seems like anything could be possible in their world!

As a 9-year-old magic girl, he can rescue Toriko from dangerous creatures and even speak to her, but that will not get his true form any closer to romance.

To make things more complicated, he soon meets another little magic girl, named Yuri. She sets her sight on teenage-boy-Akira, but sees little-girl-Akira as a rival to her romantic conquest.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
There was lots of fun manga this week. Enma-chan was definitely aimed at a younger audience, but it was a very cute story about friendship. Hoshiboshi no Utage was an interesting story, but I didn't really like the main character much. I also felt the ending left something to be desired. Tokyo Yamimushi was really action-packed and fast-paced. Dainana Joshikai Houkou was really funny. It's slice-of-life, and doesn't seem to have an overall plot (at least not yet), but each of the stories are so off-the-wall that I didn't mind.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Ohanyu - a college guy gets to be sex buddies with a famous celebrity hottie. His luck with women changes and all the girls start flocking around him. Liked the plot line and the artwork is pretty good. HR Homeroom - sort of a coming of age story for teenage girls. 4koma comedy series with topics ranging from staying best friends and hanging out with teenage boys. Boku no ushiro ni majo ga iru - comedy series about sitting right in front of a self proclaimed witch in class. Being the test subject to many of her crazy spells and potions. Pretty funny and an easy read for all.
My opinion:
Enma-chan sounds kind of cute and Tokyo Yamimushi seems a bit interesting~
