Author: Yasunori Mitsunaga
Series: Princess Resurrection volume 1
Genre: Manga, action, supernatural
Reason for Reading: My beloved trouble4hire got me this as a present while she was in SF.
Pages: 213, plus some "wouldn't you like to read this manga too?" ads at the back.
Copyright Date: 2006 for the original version, but 2007 for the English translation
Cover: A blond girl with red eyes. She is holding a bloody chainsaw and wearing a tiara, the stone in its center matches her eyes. Her garb appears to be a modified French maid's outfit.
First frame: Several people lying on stretchers with cloths over their face. A rumbling sound is written in as four copies of the word "RUMBLE" in a very small font. The printing is black and white.
Best part: I liked the cyborg servant in her little maid's outfit. Very expressive for a character with a one-word vocabulary.
Worst part: Princess Hime is actually not a very nice person.
Imaginary Theme Song: "Breaking the Girl" by Red Hot Chili Peppers
Recommended for: Manga fans.
Related Reads: I'm not sure. I don't actually read much manga, nor do I run into other forms of literature featuring blond girls ripping demons apart with chainsaws very often. As always, I welcome your suggestions. *grin*
