Title: 16 Life Author: AIKAWA Saki ISBN# 4978-4-09-133226-4 Flower Comics, 2010 It’s time to venture back into the world of the Japanese entertainment industry as depicted in shoujo manga!

Title: Berry Dynamite Author: NAKAHARA Aya ISBN# 978-4-08-846456-5 Japan: Margaret Comics, 2009 I am a big fan of NAKAHARA Aya’s works. I have discussed a few of them here before.
