The weeks MMM is...
Kamikaze Katio Jeanne Volumes 1-2
By Arina Tanemura
Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne, Vol. 1SYNOPSIS:
Kusakabe Maron is an ordinary high school girl with more then her share of problems. But by night, she is Phantom Thief Jeanne. As the reincarnation of Joan of Arc, her mission is to steal demonpossessed paintings and neutralize their evil. Jeanne's only ally is the angelintraining Finn. Together, they must fight evil by night while surviving high school by day.
Okay so along with Meru Puri and Ultra Manaic, Kamikaze Katio Jeanne was one of the first manga series I picked up. When I looked at the book I was like "Awesome!", demon killing, angles and Joan of Arc (I've had a fascination with her for a while). I love Arina Tanemura's writing and drawing and this series has me wanting to read some of her others (but I still haven't gotten a chance). I reread my favorite parts in this manga last week because I just wanted to, and I can't believe how I loved it. The characters are amazing, I love the plot line, the romance and the action.
Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne, Vol. 2

In Volumes 1 and 2, we get introduced to the main character Maron, who at night takes on the personification of Joan of Arc and saves the world under the alias Jeanne. Especially from demons that have been taking over paintings and their owners. Maron lives alone with her best friend, Miyako and her family next door, while her parents both are off traveling and separated. After Maron we meet Chiaki, a new neighbor moving into Maron and Miyako's apartment building. He's cute, and well gets a lot of attention from the girls at school. Next comes, Sinbad a competitor of Jeanne's and in volume two we find out his real identity. He's cute and has a little angel named Access to help him. While Jeanne has little cutie Finn-Fish (she's a girl btw not a boy).

Between Sinbad and Jeanne fighting to take their chess pieces to the demons. And a romance between Chiaki and Maron forming within the first two volume its, no wonder why you can easily finish this series in less than two hours. Kamikazo Katio Jeanne has 7 volumes in total, and each one has different challenges and events. Check this series out because its cute and easy to read.
