Reading Wednesday

Hey, long time no post, and this one will be short, but I've got to start getting back to posting somehow.

So I just started what looks like a delightful new-to-me manga series. It comes with an impeccable pedigree for being delightful: it's by Ouran High School Host Club's Bisco Hatori.

Behind the Scenes!! stars awkward, terribly introverted Ranmaru Kurisu, who was the odd one out in his family of hearty, hardy fisherfolk. Now at university, he's been creeping around trying not to draw attention to himself. One day, he encounters an apparent Zombie Apocalypse and is so shocked that he passes out. When he wakes from his faint, he discovers that it was a movie scene and that he has been rescued by the eccentric, creative members of the Art Squad, who provide costumes, makeup, sets, and special effects for the university's three film-making clubs.

Can Ranmaru find himself with this bunch? The answer is, of course, yes, and it's as much fun for us as it is for him.

There are two more volumes so far (I only have vol. 1 currently), and I will be picking them up ASAP. It's a good (if temporary) antidote to the current sociopolitical horror show.

This entry is also posted at Dreamwidth. Comment at either location, as you prefer.

Millennium Snow was fun, but didn't quite snag me somehow. Behind the Scenes!! brought all the Ouran charm, though, except differently? Ranmaru is just such a different character from Haruhi, and the Art Squad definitely isn't the Host Club, but there's this, I don't know, delightfulness about it that also made me love Ouran.

(I won the first three volumes, but I haven't yet read the third one.)
