It was about a year and a half ago that I learned about Iono-sama Fanatics by Miyabi Fujieda. It's the story of Iono, the queen of a small country who loves women and travels the world to charm and cajole them into working for her. It's full of wonderful characters, humor, yuri romance, and even a bit of action. I immediately became a fan of Fujieda's work and have bought all his tankoubans. With the exception of the non-yuri Twinkle...

It's been two years since Seven Seas released the first volume of First Love Sisters, a short 3-volume yuri title about the romantic relationships between students at an all-girls academy. Sadly, the other two volumes never did come out. Seven Seas says it's due to rights issues. I don't much care about that. I just want to read the manga. How is that adults can't work out something so simple as licensing a book so people can read it? This...

The best way to describe this title is "Azumanga Daioh for teachers." It's a four-panel comic strip that focuses on a group of female teachers at Asashio High School (ASTRO stands for Asashio Sogo Teachers ROom). Izumi Maki is the tomboyish PE teacher who would rather play video games and nap than teach. Yuko Nagumo is the same age and was a student with Izumi at Asashio before they went to college. Yuko wears kimonos, eats constantly...

To start with, I'm going to post a quote by S^2 from the Seven Seas update thread in Manga News that got me to buy this book:
