Her hobbies include riding motorcycles, playing the piano, and feeding stray cats, and she continues to work as an artist for Betsucomi.

Format: Paperback
Seiho high is a boys' boarding school located in Middle of Nowhere, Japan. There're no nearby stores, and transportation away from the school is pretty far away. The guys refer to it as "Japan's Alcatraz." Worst of all, there are no girls! How will the boys of Seiho high survive this hostile environment?

The story here is episodic and character driven. The main character is Maki, a sarcastic but kind guy with a cute face. He seriously reminded me of Ootani from the oh-so-wonderful Love Com, so I liked him, of course. Hanai is the only gay guy in the series, and he's sensative and loves cute things. Nogami is smart, popular, and snobbish, but he doesn't seem to know how to communicate with women. Finally, there's Kimiki, the hottest guy in school who's actually kind of a slacker. These characters are pretty good, but I wouldn't say they're exceptional. Some get more development than others, but on the whole they're kind of typical. Still, there's a good mix, and Kaneyoshi does some interesting things with them. They all behave as you expect guys would, annoying each other and talking about girls. I thought they were just a little bit too aware of each other's attractiveness, but it's only observational. Those looking for some steamy yaoi action will be sorely disappointed.

There are three stories in this volume. First, Hanai's girlfriend from middle school is visiting, and he has to act strait. Things get more complicated when she ends up staying longer than expected and rooms with Maki. Next, Nogami makes over the plain school nurse who has a crush on Kimiki. But what happens when Nogami starts liking her himself? Finally, Kimiki's sister visits, much to his chagrin, it seems.

Format: Paperback
Three hundred and twelve guys are all living together in a boarding school so far away from everything they call it "Japan's Alcatraz." The ferry only comes twice a day and the nearest train station is a 50-minute drive. Depending on what kind of manga you read, this scenario is popping all sorts of ideas into your head.
But no, "Seiho Boys' High School" is not that kind of comic. (At least not yet. Some hints are dropped.) Instead it is a pretty typical shojo romance comic filled with far too attractive guys and their girls who love them, and the misunderstandings caused by that combination.

The main character is Maki, who serves as the sort of "everyman"-type for the reader to connect with. Maki is the most normal of the students, somewhat shy an inexperienced with girls. Around him are the standard compliment of side characters, the girly-boy gay guy (Hanai), the ultra-super stud who tempts every girl and even a few guys (Kimiki), and the popular, smart and kind-of-a-jerk guy (Nogomi). All of the stories in this first volume revolve around one of these men and their bizarre romances.

Hanai is the first up to the plate, as his long-time girlfriend Miki comes out to visit him at school. Hanai has been lying to Miki about his homosexuality and using her as a cover for years, and he is afraid that is secret will be blown when she sees his princess-decorated dorm room. But Miki is not as clueless about the situation as Hanai seems to think. Next, Nogomi comes to the amazing conclusion that every single woman on Earth, everyone of them, has a kitty between their legs (although he doesn't say kitty). He then also realizes that there is in fact a girl at this all-boys school, the 27-year old school nurse who is as plain as can be and has never had a boyfriend.

Format: Paperback
I'll be honest at the start of this review & say that this series really wasn't for me. It's a cute read but it's kind of not my style. That admission however, does not stop me from recognizing that this is a pretty decent series that's sure to gain a good fan following.

The storyline follows a bunch of gorgeous guys in an all boys school as they try to gain the attentions of the various girls that they run across & for the most part, failing miserably. Whether it's a forbidden love or an unrequited one, these guys just can't seem to get a break!

I have to admit, this series was pretty darn cute. I recognized the author's work in the series Doubt!!, which was a pretty decent series. As in Doubt!!, the artwork is pretty nice & you can see where she puts a lot of love into it. The stories are also pretty decent, being completely one shots that have almost no relation to each other except for having the same cast of characters. Fans Izumi's previous works will undoubtedly be drawn to this series & those who like a hint of boys love in their manga will love the slight brushes against that genre. (I can't honestly say if that element gets more explored as the series progresses.)

It's just that in the end this series didn't really do anything to personally draw me in. I liked it & if I see the second volume on the shelves of my local bookstore I'd read it, but it's not something I'd buy or re-read. Like I said above though, I can see where this will be incredibly popular with other people.
