MM! [Light Novel]

MM!
For some reason, I can't post "MM" without it changing to "Mm"...

Light novel series from MF Bunko J.
Currently 3 volumes out with volume 4 to come out soon.

Author: Akinari Matsuno
Illustrator: QP:flapper

Spoiler for covers:


I only learned of the existence of this series when it was falsely announced to have an anime adaption, but it turned out to be a nice read. Not all that special, but a nice read. Oh, and I love the illustrations.

The basic plot set-up is... let's see...:

One day in middle school, a girl came into the classroom and slapped Sado Tarou after telling him to die, the protagonist of the series. At that moment, he awakened to masochism. The fact that there were plenty of classmates still in the classroom really sucked and, of course, was outcasted after that event.
Yes, Tarou has masochistic body constitution that awaken whenever he is hit, cursed at, etc. etc. by females (only females, does not happen with men). Of course, he doesn't like this and he normally isn't a masochist, but he sadly has that side to him because of a rather... unfortunate reason...
Anyways, time-skip to high school (first year). Tarou has found a girl he likes and wants to confess to her. But he worries that if his M side awakens around her, she'll get creeped out. So he asks his friend, Tatsukichi, for help. Tatsukichi suggests the 2nd Volunteer Club.
Without going too much into detail, Tarou is forced to join the 2nd Volunteer Club after the president, Mio, decided to figure out a way to fix his body.


Without going too much into detail or spoiling too much, characters:

Spoiler for Volume 1 (first appearance):


Spoiler for Volume 2 (first appearance):


Spoiler for Volume 3 (first appearance):


Spoiler for Volume 4 (first appearance):


Spoiler for Volume 5 (first appearance):

I got hyped up about this when I falsely announced an anime adaptation, at that time I read lots of people's comments about the light novel series, and got really excited >.< guh I wish for an anime adaptation >.<

Anyway there's a different MF Bunko J light novel series that's getting animated: Kanokon

Hmm、wonder if anybody whos not involved in translating a novel right now would like to translate this series and add it to baka-tsuki as an ongoing project. The novels look very awesome.

Congratulations, Akinari Matsuno-sensei! MM gets a manga adaption in Comic Alive!
If the art in the manga is this ("abnormal school love comedy" *laugh*) or like the sample at the back of vol.5, then I have nothing to worry about.
Now the only thing left is a real anime adaption!
--

Mm... I wonder if it's because the novels I've read recently didn't really have any moe art, but I moe-ed a lot over volume 5's illustrations...
Here are some illustrations from the past 4 volumes (couldn't find scans of vol.5 except 1... also, for some reason, the scans missed some pictures...):
Spoiler for illustrations:


QP:flapper's illustrations really are great.

Complete agreement. Maybe someone should make a thread in the requesting section of baka-tsuki's forum...

reading the descriptions vol1 spoils, I'm reminded of M_to_N_no_Shouzou, which isn't half bad itself.

Someone should really translate this series. It looks like a really interesting comedy.

I was at my local japanese bookstore and saw a copy of one of these there USED. I didnt get it though cause it was later on in the series. But still, I'd really like to read it.

-Matt

PS. Oh well, guess its a good thing I'm learning Japanese. lol

The Drama CD's information:

http://www.edge-records.jp/title/mm/

Release Date: 3/24/2010

Cast:
Sado Tarou : Suzuki Chihiro (Luke from TOA, Hanzou from Sumomomo momomo, etc.)
Isurugi Mio : Ishiguro Chihiro (Not really any major roles, JP wiki link)
Yuuno Arashiko : Horie Yui (Naru from Love Hina, Siesta from Zero no Tsukaima, etc.)
Onigawara Michiru : Kuwashima Houko (The person whose characters always seem to be dying)
Sado Shizuka : Nonaka Aoi (Fuuko from Clannad, Kafuka from Zetsubou Sensei, etc.)
Sado Tomoko : Hisakawa Aya (Faruko from AIR, Minamo from Azumanga Daioh, etc.)


Well... At least Mio didn't turn out to be Kugimiya, which I felt was really likely to happen. Though I don't really know this Ishiguro Chihiro...

Who is the main girl? Mio (I am guessing the blonde) or that other girl? Because so far looking at the illustrations gets me impression that there are more cover illustrations of that blue/violet/purple whatever the colour shoulder length hair girl than Mio.

Double main; I don't think one of the girls is more "main" than the other... supposedly.
Though maybe Mio more than Yuuno... Especially, popularity.

Me: Sorry, time and motivation got...
2nd Me: You're halfhearted as always...
Me: (・ω・`)

Pretty much just common love-comedy stuff in different situations. Not all that many major developments...
Well, recently, one...
Spoiler for recent volume (8)... I think:


Volume 7 was, in a bad meaning, chaos...
The others were the usual level of interesting-ness.

Anyways, more illustrations:
Spoiler for volume5:

Spoiler for volume 6:

Spoiler for volume 7:

Spoiler for volume 8:

Spoiler for Gaiden:

Spoiler for Volume 9 cover:

Mio is a tsundere so its a given that she will be more popular. Its a rare for a tsundere who is one of the mains to not be popular.
