A follow-up to this post from yesterday! Hooray! Wherein I jump to volume 2, to introduce the last girl of the cast.

Ana Coppola - an 11 year old girl, she was born in Cornwall, England, but moved to Japan when she was 5, and she's introduced on the day she transfers to Matsuri's class.

It's not actually explained why she's transferring, but, for Ana it's a clean start.


Lucky for her her classmates' English is worse than hers, and her teacher is bizarrely accepting of her claim only to speak English.

She ends up causing Matsuri to panic, by attempting to say hello to her. It's adorable, but, sadly, I had no room for it.

During clean up at the end of the day, though, Ana realizes there's another issue with her plan - she's going to be completely isolated if she only speaks...let's be generous and call it English.

But, she still intends to go with it (gotta admire her devotion to the whole thing, if nothing else!), until she accidentally speaks to Matsuri in Japanese.


She recovers her composure, and decides it's probably a good thing...at least she can talk to Matsuri, right? So, they walk home, Ana explaining her 'no speaking Japanese' plan and convincing Matsuri to go along with it. On the way meet Chika and Miu - much to Ana's distress (no orz this time, though). But she recovers, and they all go to Chika's house.

Nobue sure knows how to greet a new girl, huh?

And even in Ana's story, Matsuri can't get a break, jeez.

A while later, Ana's gotten over the Nobue-trauma, and they've become friends. So, everyone decides to go visit her. Discovering that she's wealthy, Miu gets unduly jealous and decides to ding-dong ditch, instead. Obviously, nobody else goes along with it, and they get a tour of Ana's house, when it's interrupted by a scream...

Hey, it's another pet named after John Frusciante. (Told you he was a fan.)

Despite what everybody no doubt hopes, Frusciante doesn't devour Miu, and she joins everyone else in the house.

It goes on like that for a while, then Miu gets banished, while Nobue tries to stop Ana's crying.

Ana quite accidentally gets her revenge, though...

Miu's brain is a strange place.

But, if she can't compete on boobs, what about her other obsession?

... Guess not.

I love Miu's face in that last panel, though...terrible sadness at having lost in the 'clothes' competition (even if she was the only one who knew there was a competition going on)...rapturous joy at being surrounded by so many clothes.

It's eventually time to go...

Oh, Miu, you scamp. And, by 'scamp', I mean kleptomaniac. And by 'kleptomaniac', I mean wee little criminal. And by 'wee little criminal', I mean...well, actually, I mean wee little criminal.

And one final sequence, since it's a sequel to one from the last post....

Omigosh, she even wore the tail!

RIP: Miu Matsuoka. >_>

2 chapters from v2, 1 from v5, 5 from 16, 5 from 16, 3 from 9.

Next time...prepare to actually feel sorry for Miu.

You know, I'm not feeling the love here.

It's not very funny, it tries to be adorable but it's really not very. The characte designs are not very expressive....

I guss it's just not for me.

Yeah, I don't want to be a hater, but this is like Precious Moments, the Manga.

It's no K-On.

Though I do like the one where what's her name is dead for an hour or so.

Aw, I think this is cute! Ana's adorable and I love mischievous!Miu-that-sorta-sucks-at-being-mischievous. And it's so funny to see Matsuri wearing the cat get up again... And Ana wearing the bunny ears... *squees and sweatdrops* I may have a bit of a Nobue weakness for cute girls too come to think of it. ^^;;

Woo, I found scans online of this already. *wanders off to read*
