Description

Legendary anime creator Mari Okada (anohana, Maquia) makes her manga debut with a moving, funny, so-true-it’s-sometimes-embarrassing story of high school girls coming of age together. Perfect for those looking for a manga reminiscent of Noelle Stevenson or Jillian Tamaki.

Kazusa was a quiet middle schooler, but she arrived in high school determined to make friends. So (as a huge Harry Potter fan) she decides to join the literature club. When one of the club’s icebreakers is “say one thing you want to do before you die,” one of the girls blurts out “sex.” The prudish club president, the class beauty, and the other nerdy girls’ reactions are wildly different. Far from a typical sex comedy, O Maidens in Your Savage Season depicts how these girls challenge and support one another when THAT WORD pushes them onto a variety of clumsy, funny, painful, and emotional paths towards adulthood. Mari Okada’s unique talent for pairing lovable and relatable characters and emotional twists is lent new dimension by the detailed and dynamic sequential art of Nao Emoto (Forget Me Not).
