    Default Pearl Pink

    A heads-up to the shoujo readers among us: Pearl Pink (Tennen Paaru Pinku) by Tanaka Meka. It's the rare shoujo that doesn't have at least one character I want to strangle -- and this is one. It's a romantic comedy, which I'm always up for, with idol singers, which means surrealism, which is also a plus. Their meeting isn't forced, either: her mother is an idol with his father's talent agency. Plus mom crawls through ceilings like a ninja, and modern ninjas are always doubleplusgood. Also, pet monkey = yay.

    Only three chapters have been scanlated, which means the official version is ahead of them, at least in the States (one volume out from Tokyopop). P. Bob Random says check it out. If you like that sort of thing.

    I've read the first volume. I don't know why but she reminded me of Sumomomomomomo. maybe its the whole "marry me" thing. Nice read. I'll definitely read the 2nd volume. ^^

    I hadn't thought of that connection, but you're right. I was reminded of Baby Love most, though it's not like there's a host of childhood promises out there.

    Of Tanaka's other series, only Omukaedesu is licensed in English -- and is okay. Definitely an early work, though it also has likeable characters. Sailor Fuku Ni Onegai! looks promising, though the scanlation job on the first chapter is crappy. Based on the raws, it looks readily licenseable.
