This is a must read! If you like gag manga with cute animals, that is. Dondonguri by Haruna Moyori is just so adorable! Risu (I don’t know what’s its proper name in English) is an alien who was ordered to invade earth as his school’s graduation exam.
The story starts with the alien meeting the human (unnamed but the character sheet in the site calls him “Megane”). Well, Risu accidentally slipps his “mission” parameters and fails lie about it being a school trip to the human though. Risu is the name of the plush character skin the alien’s wearing and seems to like pudding very much. From the samples given, it looks like Dondonguri’s about their everyday life together. Donguri’s the food that squirrels eat btw.

Asuka’s finally releasing something I want to own. Samamiya Akaza and Iwaki Hiromi’s Ouji wa Tadaima Dekasegichuu. I don’t care what people say about how crappy the storyline is, I really enjoyed reading it. Ouji wa Tadaima Dekasegichuu gives me a very Kyou Kara Maou feeling to the story. It’s also very slashy!
