Hayate x Blade
Kurogane Hayate finds herself in a dilemma. Her twin sister, Nagi, is recovering from an injury and needs someone to go to school in her place. Little did she know, the school was based on a -Swordswoman League,- where everyone participates in what are called Duels for Stars with their sisters-in-arms, yuujin, in order to gain prestige, money, and power. Her first encounters with the students at this new school range from intimidating, such as with the Student Council President, Amachi Hitsugi and her yuujin, Miyamoto Shizuku, to completely awestruck, such as the hot-headed but extremely experienced (and without a yuujin) Mudou Ayana. At first Hayate thinks she can get away without participating in the Duels for Stars, but the first day she comes home, the orphanage she cares for deeply is a complete wreck...
Poor Poor Lips
Nako is a poverty-stricken 21 year-old in desperate need of a job. She applies for a job at a jewelry store. When shop owner Ren identifies herself as a lesbian, the competition for the position evaporates, leaving only Nako. Ren asks her if her sexual orientation will be a problem, Nako sensibly replies that she's not interested, so she doesn't see any problem. The comic is a a series of 4-koma strips, and range from beating Nako's state of poverty to death (as in the strip where she's about to eat bread crusts for lunch and is mistaken for feeding the birds) and to Ren's privilege and her orientation. But never in a mean way. Nako's not entirely naive, but she's not entirely clueful either, which makes for a nice mix of goofy silly and plain funny.
