    Prequel

    I honestly, have never read a Luna book. In middle school, I have heard nothing but praise for Luna from my classmates. It was at the end of 2011, when this oel manga hit my local shelves, and, mesmerized by the beautiful art, I picked it up. At first, I did not process anything I read. All I saw was the wonderful artwork, the artist has great control over anatomy and proportions and the backgrounds really give it a sense of setting. But the second time around, I registered every wordy speech bubble in the volume and even went on to the second volume. Frankly speaking, the plot and art is better than hundreds of published manga in Japan. The plot is simple and straightfoward but the STORY is very well executed. After all, this IS written by the same writers for Kim Possible. JENNIFER is done in, as far as my knowledge goes, a much more serious tone than the main series. But I ca see the aspects are similar, both focus on the agents' personal progress: tracking their humane growth, analyzing their social lives, and so forth. It is very HUMAN. Even though Jennifer might be strict and stern in the main timeline as master control, you read a volume of A.A. Jennifer, and you know why. Although I believe this can be stretched out more because there's plenty of material, I'm reminded that this is only a prequel and that the main timeline has four or five volumes released as of now.

    Completely Useless

    The Pages on this book are all cut off at the bottom making this book impossible to read. Tried it on my Nook 1st edition and Nook for PC. Same problem.

    I started to read the manga , and really enjoyed it's mix of com

    I started to read the manga , and really enjoyed it's mix of coming of age story, slice of life tales, and action. I heard that the creators of <i>Luna</i>
    recently made a prequel series focused on the woman who would grow up to be Luna's “Control”, and telling the story of how she joined the super-secret Agency in the first place. I decided to pick it up and give it a try. Originally a web comic, the series has now been collected and released in graphic novel format.

    The story, <i>Amazing Agent Jennifer, Vol. 1</i>
    , begins with a young woman, Jennifer Kajiwara, who is of mixed Japanese and American ancestry, entering college. Her father is an extremely controlling man, and truly gets emotionally and verbally abusive at times, who wants her to take the courses he states she ought to take, or else he won't pay for college.

    The thing is that he can't be pleased. Jennifer takes all of the courses that her father mandates for her, as well as other courses she is interested in taking, all the while maintaining a near-perfect GPA. Despite this, her father tries to force her to drop her other courses by threatening to withdraw his funding for her. It at this time that an agent of a shadowy black-ops agency of the US government approaches her about paying for her tuition, room, and board if she agrees to train for a “potential” (not at all guaranteed) slot as an agent.

    This story was the beginning of the adventures for Jennifer, and focused more on her training and school days. It directly sets up the first mission of Jennifer and her love interest. It also sets up the antagonists for the earlier written, and later chronologically, <i>Amazing Agent Luna</i>
    series.

    The main draw for this series was seeing the motivations and background of Jennifer, Luna's Control. That she truly is a caring and good person can not ever be doubted. But her fears, inhibitions, and so on have been sort of “beaten into” her by her family, life situations, etc., to the extent that she is in the state she is in as Luna's “Control”.

    An interesting prequel series, though one caution I will give is that it can be hard for some people to see parents emotionally abuse their children, and that part was hard for me to see. Just a fair warning for the very few pages dedicated to that part of the story.
