放課後のカリスマ 2

Houkago no Charisma © Suekane Kumiko/Shogakukan (Serialized in Ikki)
Published in Singapore as Afterschool Charisma by Chuang Yi

Even St. Kleio Academy, home of clones of history's best and brightest, holds school festivals — up to and including the pièce de résistance bonfires. The St. Kleio touch, however, remands the showpiece to its autochthonous purpose of burning heretics or proscribed literature. Thus, the stage is set for a re-enactment of Jeanne d'Arc's death scene in the much-awaited second volume of Afterschool Charisma.

Before I babble about Chuang Yi's latest My Fair Lady manga (volume 24), anyone caught the first episodes of the Yamanade dorama starring Kame as Kyohei? It was supposed to premiered last 15th January on TBS, with Oomasa Aya (Kayama Rika, Mei-chan no Shitsuji) as Nakahara Sunako.

So. Sunako. The prince of Grimmel is still after our princess of darkness, a pursuit doomed to failure as Aunty schemes to throw Sunako and Kyohei together on a date. (You can read the full Chuang Yi synopses after the list below.)
