Seitokai Tantei Kirika [Light Novel and Manga]

Anyone else following this one?

Two chaps have been released - ch 00 and 01.

It began to be worked on because of the beautiful art, but it reminds me a little of an odd cross between the student council of Seitokai no Ichizon and the detective/sidekick combo of Kamisama no Memochou.

But I kind of like it so far.

I'm following it, just read the first two chapters. What strikes me the most is the gorgeous art, the story still needs to develop a little for me to comment on it.

But I'm liking it so far.

What actually surprised me the most is that this is actually an adaptation of an Light Novel which the autor is surprisingly Sugii Hikaru. So it's not actually strange that you created an parallel between it and Kamisama no Memochou.

What I'm smelling is that there's obviously a plot to pull the MC into the student council, someone inside there (or maybe more than one) doesn't want to give him up so easily

I really enjoyed the Kamisama no Memochou novels (at least that are in eng), so if this is an adaptation of novels by the same author it explains a few things to be sure!

Still ... it feels different enough (at least so far?) to "stand on its own" to me. Maybe I should add an img to the initial post to show some of the art....

Another Hikaru Sugii's work? Man, that guy sure has endless remaining stamina to write so many works simultaneously.

There are other things other than Kamisama no Memochou and the novels that are the basis for this manga that he is simultaneously writing?

No, he means that Hikaru Sugii has other ongoing series. There's Sayonara Piano Sonata and probably other obsure novels I'm missing.

Busy guy...

Hikaru Sugii's other works :

Hime no Miko (Dengeki Bunko, February 2006 ~ )
Kami-sama no Memo-chō (Dengeki Bunko, January 2007 ~ )
Sayonara Piano Sonata (Dengeki Bunko, November 2007 ~ October 2009)
Shizume no Itaka (Ichijinsha Bunko, May 2008 ~ )
Sakura Familia! (Ichijinsha Bunko, August 2008 ~ )
Bakerano! (GA Bunko, September 2008 ~ )
The Sword Queen and The Branded Child (MF Bunko J, April 2009 ~ )
Subete no Ai ga Yurusareru Shima (Media Works Bunko, December 2009)
Shion no Ketsuzoku (Ichijinsha Bunko, March 2010 ~)
Owaru Sekai no Album (ASCII Media Works, October 2010)
Hanasakeru Erial Force (Gagaga Bunko, February 2011)

Crazy how he manages to pull it off

Perhaps the only LN author who can be compared with him is Kamachi Kazuma who is also busy with a bunch of works (Toaru Majutsu, Heavy Object, Zashiki Warashi, etc)

Meh, he still only write at most 3-5 novel a year. What end up happening is a lot of his work get left hanging for a while for him to work on his other series.

Quite like the author of Freezing, who also has plenty os series running at the same time. At least Sugii Hikaru doesn't drop his own works.

Yes indeed - looks like a new arc beginning with chapter 4.

And yes - Kirika is adorable imo. ^^

I really don't like the setting Hikaru Sugii used for this series. The intelligent lonely child with no social or survival girl depending on the relatively normal male tsukkomi protagonist is already something he did with Kamisama no Memochou. Why did he have to put the premise on top of an already generic high school setting?

It has not bothered me much to be honest, but if it does not work for you that's the way it is.

I would only add that I don't think she is necessarily dependent on the lead male chara - she has lived in such a place for a few years already afaict. What it does seem (at least to me) is that she is going to begin to grow and develop in other areas of her personality and emotions into a slightly more rounded person.

Yes - it was already done in Kamisama no Memochou to be sure, but as much as I enjoyed that series I feel that the dynamic feels more realistic here for some reason. Maybe it is just me, though. ^^
