About the Author

Birthday: August 1 (Lion)Blood type: ABBorn in Tokyo.Debut title: Live ga Hanetara (Serialized in Deluxe Betsucomi in 2000), which won the 45th New Manga Artist Award of Shogakukan. Sakurakoji is a prolific artist having completed 9 separate series' in her young career. The artist is also the owner of a cat that was featured in a recently published picture book (roughly translated as Shojo Artists and Their Cats). Kanoko Sakurakoji is a fan favorite in the pages of Betsucomi Flower Comics.


Ordinary girl Akari follows a belled cat into a kabuki theater in an opening scene reminiscent of Alice's trip to Wonderland. High school hottie Horiuchi, earlier hurt by Akari's accidental entry, turns out to have broken ribs and a great talent for the stage. Akari becomes his assistant, even though she knows nothing about kabuki, and he hates everyone. There's lots of internal monologue as Akari ponders Horiuchi's attitudes and her feelings about him. He tolerates her because she's the only one who keeps trying to spend time with him regardless of his bad attitude. She falls almost instantly in love but fears her feelings because she'll never fit in his world. Panels consist of the traditional shojo manga focus on heads and facial expressions. The story is similarly traditional, straight romance with the emotionally blocked male needing female redemption to express love. (If this sounds familiar, it's been the grounding for countless Harlequins.) This book provides the emotional drama of Sensual Phrase without the sex, making it suitable for a teen-and-up audience and anyone who loves the roller coaster of feelings as two people meant for each other find each other.
