Arata : the legend. Vol. 1 — Yu Watase, normally known for her shojo series (such as Absolute Boyfriend) tackles the shonen genre here. Two guys from different worlds, one a modern day student, the other pretending to be the next ruling princess of a magical land (it's a long story), suddenly switch places. Watase demenstrates she's a master of either genre, as she spins a fantasy yarn similar to her Fushigi Yugi but this time with a bit more action, shonen-style. The 7th volume has just come out, and this series just keeps getting better.
