    I just finished reading Fujiyama-san wa Shishunki by Ojiro Makoto. This was my second work by this author, the first being Neko no Otera no Chion-san, and I think I enjoy it more. It's a very sweet teenage romance series. I think much of the strength of the series comes from excellent "character acting". A lot of the romance doesn't come from words, but from subtle body language. By the first two chapters the two main characters have started dating, but the rest of the series explores what that concept actually means to them. What they are comfortable with both doing and saying. If you want to get really excited about two kids holding hands, this is certainly a story for you.

    I've now also started reading Insomniacs After School by the same author. This one actually has an anime, which I did not know about. It seems like I'm reading her works in the opposite direction of popularity. Only a couple of chapters in, but I'm into it.
