Manga Review

In this day and age, arranged marriage are seen by contemporary romantics as old fashion practices, just how can anyone find love and romance when marriage is conducted for reasons other than love? Childhood friends, David and Marlo have not seen each other for ten years, and weren't intended for each other, however since the parents were best friends, and these two characters are the heirs. What else to do but betroth them?

At this point Until the Full Moon can clearly be seen as a boys love title, but a plot twist throws a wrench in. Instead of turning into a werewolf, Marlo happens to turn into a female every month at full moon, thus making Until the Full Moon a gender bending comedy. Did I happen to mention that the majority of characters in this series happen to be vampires, werewolves or magic users of sorts, so issues occur for this couple? Until the Full Moon is a good read alike alongside Ranma 1/2 or Princess Knight.

Until The Full Moon As a mangaka, Sanami Matoh is known for FAKE a BL manga series that got early exposure published in the United States during the 1990's by Tokyopop. At the time, Fake can be considered as being more adult oriented than Gravitation. Until The Full Moon was also initially released by Japanese company, Broccoli Books under their English imprint of Broccoli International USA, before they pulled out of North America. Though not a title rescue, Until the Full Moon was out of print for a couple of years. At this point Kodansha re-releases Until the Full Moon in a new translation, and includes a latter story, not published before.

Kodansha is also currently releasing At Full Moon (@Full Moon) and this is the second part in the series of Until the Full Moon.
