AGAIN AND AGAIN
Comrades, crushes, and former rivals take over the school as they protest the new no-dating policy that caused Sonezaki’s expulsion. Together, their demands are louder, but so many butting heads means there’s a whole lotta energy with no release. The night is long, but it’s nothing new for the girls who’ve already weathered storm after storm. After the yelling and  the crying, one can only hope that laughter will follow… When Kazusa entered high school, she joined the Literature Club. How could she have known that the chaos that ensued with every table read, every text message, every hug, was just this little thing called life?
 
FINAL VOLUME!

Kazusa’s first high school literature club meeting starts with five girls being asked, “What’s one thing you want to do before you die?” When one of them blurts out, “Sex,” it launches these new friends down a raucous, embarrassing, all-too-relatable path. One of Japan’s top female screenwriters, Okada hones her knack for aching drama and wry humor that became her trademark with anime like anohana and Maquia. Amid an explosion of graphic novels about girls’ teenage years, like Lumberjanes and That One Summer, O Maidens brings a diverse, fresh, and hilarious perspective on how it feels to leave childhood behind.

1 WORD. 3 LETTERS. RHYMES WITH “VEX.”

When Kazusa enters high school, she joins the Literature Club, where she leaps from reading innocent fiction to diving into the literary classics. But these novels are a bit more…adult than she was prepared for. Between euphemisms like fresh dewy grass and pork stew, crushing on the boy next door, and knowing you want to do that one thing before you die–discovering your budding sexuality is no easy feat! As if puberty wasn’t awkward enough, the club consists of a brooding writer, the prettiest girl in school, an agreeable comrade, and an outspoken prude. Fumbling over their own discomforts, these five teens get thrown into chaos over three little letters: S…E…X…!
