About the Author:

Arina Tanemura began her manga career in 1996 when her short stories debuted in Ribon magazine. Tanemura gained fame with the 1997 publication of I·O·N, a high school romance with a supernatural twist. From 1998 to 2000, she worked on the popular series Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne, about a young girl who is the reincarnation of Joan of Arc, followed by Time Stranger Kyoko in 2000–2001 and Full Moon in 2002. Despite Tanemura's intentions to draw in a style that makes her stories difficult to animate, both Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne and Full Moon have been adapted into TV series.

From Publishers Weekly:

Here's another early manga by the creator of Full Moon O Sagashite and Gentlemen's Alliance Cross. Fifteen-year-old Kyoko is the incognito princess of Earth, attending public school anonymously while her twin sister, Ui, has been asleep since birth. Kyoko sets off on a quest to gather the 12 god stones to save Ui's life, but as an added bonus Kyoko hopes Ui will take over her princess duties and stop those pesky riots going on outside the palace. The story has an extremely busy plot and equally layered, busy art; the detailed costume designs are a mishmash of time periods, lots of screen tone, and speed lines fill every frame. Fantasy elements are heaped on; in this future, humans mix their own DNA with animals and plants to form the Flower Tribe, the Dragon Tribe and even an evil Demon Tribe. Despite the older teen rating (perhaps due to a bloodied dragon corpse in one scene) the story has appeal for young girls; Kyoko is a magic girl with a talking time wand, a robot-cat sidekick and two cute teenage boy guardians who can transform into dragons. In her author's notes, Tanemura admits she was in a slump while writing this story, and the resulting work is uneven. (July)
