Hanayu, daughter of a pastry chef, plans to marry Hayato, the son of a sushi chef and heir to the Hyuga family restaurant, so that she can become a famous sushi chef. Ironically, Hayato dreams of becoming a famous pastry chef. Together, Hanayu and Hayato realize their dreams – although, not in the typical shoujo romance way. Mixed Vegetables shows you that courage and dedication are required to fulfill your dreams.
PBCLS currently owns all 8 volumes of this romantic series. Reserve book one now.
How many fairy tales do you know that mention the Fibonacci sequence? If you know The Good Witch of the West, you know at least one. The Good Witch of the West is a manga by Haruhiko Momokawa based on the books by Noriko Ogiwara. It is the story of how a young girl named Firiel is discovered to be the next queen-in-waiting, and the dangers that this newly found birthright brings to those close to her.
We have the first volume in the system, but keep an eye out for others. While you’re waiting, definitely put a hold on volume one here.
Emma is a manga about a shy young woman who is a maid in Victorian London. Emma is pursued by many aristocratic young men, but she refuses them all until she meets her employer’s former student, William Jones.
Kaoru Mori, the creator, is a huge Anglophile, which explains why Emma reads like a Jane Austen novel. It begins a little quietly with a simple flirtation between Emma and Mr. Jones, but soon, there’s all the trappings of an Austen novel: meddling family and friends, a love triangle, and of course, pride and prejudice.
Also, don’t forget to check out the afterword manga, ”Maids in Black” which is a humourous look at how Kaoru Mori went through the process of creating Emma.
Put a hold on Emma.
