Manga Releases 3-24-15 (Testing)

Post by Takashichea on Thu Mar 26, 2015 4:18 am

Welcome to the final blog! I added the Quick Picks name back to honor Geo and BigHeart711 and their work. Gia Manry started the project back in 2009 and then Geo picked it up. He passed it down to me and BigHeart711 back in 2012. Geo had BigHeart711 and myself PM Tom the weekly Quick Picks and put it on the front page. 3 years went into this project to promote the industry and getting people to buy manga and DVDs/BDs legally. The reason I dropped the name Quick Picks because my partner got busy with school. I didn't want to burden him. I went solo in 2013 and adopted the name, Weekly DVD/BD Releases and Weekly Manga Releases and split the workload in half since manga was generally more heavier. I did manga releases later in the week rather than on Tuesday which was mostly school day for me.

I thank you everyone for your support.

Student Council's Discretion

At Hekiyo Academy, all but one of the Student Council members are elected via popularity contests, and since teenagers think with hormones more often than intellects, those seats are filled by the attractive derrieres of the school's most beautiful girls! That makes things extra rough on the one student chosen for academic scores, because besides being the council's only male member, one of Ken Sugisaki's main assignments is writing stories informing the student body about the many achievements of their Student Council.

To do that he'll have to manipulate the truth just a bit, and given that Ken's a besotted fan of dating video games who fantasizes about his fellow council members as his "harem", things tend to get even more out of hand. Plus, exactly who's going to be the leading lady is up for debate, as immature Kurimu, tomboyish Minatsu, twisted Chizuru, and "boy's love" obsessed Mafuyu are all trying to add their own particular spins even as their jealous rivals in the Journalism Club aim to shoot them down!
