Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Veteran Japanese mangaka Touya (Clean Freak Fully Equipped) returns to American audiences with a demon-hunting-turned-werewolf tale of devotion and redemption. After her twin brother’s death, Takamichi becomes the heir of her demon-hunter family. But her brother’s death has left her scarred and unwilling to care about anyone, until her father tasks her with caring for two half-demon, half-human puppies, called Jiu Jiu. In three years, teenage Takamichi’s puppies have become the physical equivalent of teen humans, but are still as utterly devoted and playful as young dogs. The nude antics of the human-puppies (drawn in bishounen, pretty boy style) provide some comedy in this otherwise heavy supernatural drama about loss and love. Touya’s clear illustrations are high on action and emotion, matching the story’s tone perfectly. Despite references to walks, Frisbee throwing, and high school intended to keep the story from being too grave, it’s perhaps too serious for a tale of shape-shifting puppies. Takamichi is a difficult narrator to enjoy, but the inherent devotion of her Jiu Jiu keeps readers looking for her good qualities—and wondering if there will be romantic hijinks in the future. (July)

    When picking up mangas to read from Shojo Beat, I was a bit skeptical about Jiu Jiu's cover art. But hey, you can't judge a book by its cover! So when I first read it, I immediately fell for Tobina's artwork and the storyline that she has set up. Although some might think the plot is in a way sketchy and hard to follow at times, I was absolutely drawn in.

    Loved this!

    I recently started reading manga and was excited to see that this was the first in a series. I love to follow along as the author writes. Jiu Jiu is filled with action and awkward moments - everything you would expect from having creatures in your life who are actually wolves/dogs who can turn into people. If you're a dog person, if you like possible love triangles, manga having to do with school life and fantasy, this one is for you! I can't wait for the next one to come out.

    more from this reviewer

    Ever wondered what your dogs were thinking about? This title brings cute answers!!!

    I absolutely love it! Read for great comedic moments throughout and steamy romance situations at times too. I don't want to give anything away for you, but the best part is it uniquely voices the two wolf pups thoughts in the cutest/most innocent ways. You'll definately have fun reading these books! Also, this is from Shojobeat who brings you Skip Beat and Kamisama!!!

    Must see this if you like Kamisama or Alice in the Country of Hearts.
