Hana Suzuki loves only two things in life: eating and sleeping. So when handsome classmate Izumi Oda asks Hana–his major crush–to join the school hockey club, persuading her proves to be a difficult task. True, the Grand Hockey Club is full of boys–and all the boys are super-cute–but given a choice, Hana prefers a sizzling steak to a hot date. Then Izumi mentions the field trips to fancy resorts. Now Hana can’t wait for the first away game, with its promise of delicious food and luxurious linens. Of course there’s also the getting up early, working hard, and playing well with others. How will Hana survive?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

A cornerstone manga genre since day one, the sports comic has served as a repository for inspirational tales laden with such traditional values as team bonding, striving to win against all odds and sagas of "everyman" heroes meant to inspire Japanese youth, but this series has apparently had enough of such wholesome fare and skewers its ancestors squarely through the athletic supporter. Hana, a figure-challenged and lazy high school girl, finds herself enlisted as the goalie on an all-male field hockey team and becomes embroiled in comedic adventures that involve much travel and practice, but no actual sports matches, and when Hana proves useless on the field she finds herself replaced by a love-struck bear, a crazily surreal visual that has to be seen to be disbelieved. The cast is rounded out with well-drawn and blithely scornful takes on the stock characters of the genre, and for once the army of pretty young males refreshingly serves as poster children for raffish indolence. Morinaga's fresh and funny tale offers satisfying lunacy. (June)

Gr 9 Up Fans of Bisco Hatori's "Ouran High Host Club" books (Viz Media) will recognize the premise of this shojo manga: girl breaks boy's toy and is coerced into joining his club to repay her debt. The girl, Hana, counts sleeping as her number one hobby. In a daze, she gets hit by Izumi's car. He forces her to join the field hockey club as a way to make up for the dent she left. The club is made up of rich boys who never play a game but love to travel. They take Hana (who can literally goaltend in her sleep) all around Japan. She gets to ride in helicopters, take a train, and spend time in beautiful hotels. She complains the whole way, making it difficult to see why these boys would want her along. A helpful feature is the explanation of the honorifics in the front and the cultural references in the back. The story has potential but, unfortunately, a borderline narcoleptic just isn't very interesting. The other characters stick to their clichés. The jokes are slapstick and often fall flat. With all the manga being published right now, it is safe to skip this one.-Sadie Mattox, DeKalb County Public Library, Decatur, GA

    My two cents...

    I just recently started my manga collection and I'm happy to say that the first volume of My Heavenly hocky club was the first manga I ever bought, and it did not disappoint. I was lucky to be in B&Bs browsing one day and I picked up this book out of random curiosity. By the time I finished reading it I was hooked. The story line is funny and the characters are all cute and interesting in their own ways. If you like the Ouran Highschool Host club series than you will enjoy this series just as much. I loved the leading lady starting in this volume and now that I'm on volume four I've completely fallen for the rest of the hocky club cast. I definetly recommend this book as well as the rest of the series. Two thumbs up!
