Format: Paperback
Minori couldn't be more average. She is an ordinary girl whose only real interest is playing video games. On a day that is too nice for going to school, she skips and heads to the video arcade. She wins the game she's playing, easily beating the one guy no one else had been able to beat, when suddenly everything goes crazy. The guy (who is kinda cute, she has to admit) declares that Minori will be his new bride! She takes him for a wacko and runs, but the next day at school he shows up again. That's when Minori, who's never been much for politics, finds out that he's the newly elected 25-year-old prime minister of Japan.

Eiki's plot is pure craziness, but that's what makes it fun, or what will make it even more fun once the scene-setting and character introductions from volume one are done and the series can pick up. Since there are five main characters to introduce--Minori, Kanata the prime minister, his two friends from high school who now work for him, and his 18-year-old assistant--it makes sense that it takes most of the volume to get them onscreen and give the readers a brief idea of who they are. We can begin to see their various personalities and how they interact with one another and we're offered a glimpse of conflicts to come. All of the boys have quirks and Minori, the ordinary one of the bunch, finds navigating those quirks to be tricky. But Eiki doesn't make the mistake of explaining too much too quickly, even though this was her first long-form series (rather than her usual one-shots) and she's working in the shojo (girls') genre, rather than in her usual yaoi (boys' love) genre.

The craziness of the plot requires a lot of suspension of disbelief, especially since Minori's parents are so blasé about their daughter marrying someone they've never met before.

The art is of course amazing, as is every book by Eiki Eiki. The story is different because it's a guy going after a girl, not guy going after a guy. I liked the story just the same. There are some yaoi moments but nothing hard core, mostly admiring from afar.

Format: Paperback
The politics game is in full swing and a new Prime minister is about to be announced. Yeah, yeah, most of us are as bored about hearing about it all, and Minori is no different. Ignoring the news item about the current upcoming political announcement, she heads out the door. It's too nice a day out to spend it cooped up at school, so she decides to play hooky and heads for a games arcade. There she whiles away her time beating the high scores when she notices a flurry of activity around one game in particular. Some guy is over there beating all challengers, and this looks like just the way to spice up her day. Announcing she is going to take him on, the guys are in disbelief that this waif of a high school girl seems to think she can take on an obvious games master. She trounces him royally, and that is when she gets a bit more excitement than she bargained for, as the admittedly cute guy suddenly looms over her, unexpectedly caresses her hair, and announces she will be his bride.

Certain she has attracted the attention of a wacko, she of course goes to make a quick exit, but he is having none of it. Interceding for her when she then runs into some thugs outside, he himself is then accosted by a man in a suit who chides him, but not before the young man presses a card in her hand. Whatever! She is just glad he is gone. That is, until he shows up at her school, takes her away in a limo, and the whole world learns that THIS guy has chosen her for his future First Lady. It seems that this fellow is none other than 25 year old Kanata Okazaki, youngest member of the Diet and Japan's newest, and youngest ever, Prime Minister. Just what makes him so crazy about her, and why is his aide glaring at her like that?

It's true that I'm a little partial -- I wrote the English adaptation for the first two volumes of the Millennium Prime Minister series. But I had quite a bit of fun doing it, and was glad to be assigned to such an unusual and entertaining manga. To read MPM, you can't take it too seriously (or literally), but you can go on one absurd ride with it. I hope I did a good job rendering it into conversational and easy-to-read English, so that readers can enjoy the humor of it. I know that I got into the story while I was writing the adaptation.
