Overview

Yuu Watase, the immensely popular writer/artist of the shôjo (girls) fantasy smash Fushigi Yûgi: The Mysterious Play, has turned her creativity and wry sense of humour to the horror genre with her anime/manga hit Ceres: Celestial Legend. Aya thought she was a normal teenager until she discovered that she can transform into a vastly powerful "heavenly maiden" named Ceres...But Ceres is furious and out for revenge!

Hell hath no fury...or, in this case, Heaven, as it's a celestial maiden or "ten'nyo" who's unleashing it! The search for Ceres' hagoromo or "celestial robes" brings the action back to Tokyo - to Miyagi, specifically, where rumours of a spectral white dog ("figuring in the celestial legend!," says Suzumi) prompt a transfer to girls-only high school for Aya, Chidori, and...Yûhi?! Connected to the dog's increasingly frequent attacks is a sweet and popular girl named Maya Hirobe, but why - and more importantly, how - is she involved? Is it possible that Maya is a C-Genome...and doesn't even know it?

    This is a very good manga

    Ceres is a great series to read. I'm only up to vol. 7 but i love it. It's a very nice romantic/action manga with a little bit of comedy.

    One of the best!

    This was one of my favorite Ceres books(other than vol. 5). You really see Aya and Toya's relationship devolop, plus Toya's memories seem to be coming back! Yu Watase really outdid herself in this one. As usually the graphics are superb and the story line is perfect! It also includes a guide to the different terms and a funny comic at the beginning.

    25 yrs old and loves to read

    The Ceres books are all excellent. The adventure and romance makes a great escape and an irresistible page turner. The DVDs are really good too and follow the story line very closely.
