Gakuen Polizi – Milk Morinaga
This currently two volume series is about a girl named Sasami Aoba who has always dreamed of becoming “a defender of justice”. Now an adult, she’s become a police officer and is given her first assignment – enter into a high school and look for troublemakers. When she arrives, her first culprit turns out to be another undercover police officer. Is she friend, foe or something more?
I’m already a big fan of Milk Morinaga, after reading her books Seven Seas’ has already released – Girlfriends and Kisses, Sighs and Cherry Blossom Pink (adapted by our own Shannon Fay!) – so Gakuen Polizi instantly becomes a must-buy for me. Her other works have been very high-school-romance-centric, and while this new one obviously has the same theme, the additional story of being undercover police officers makes me all the more curious. It sounds like a lot of fun!
Volume of Gakuen Polizi is scheduled for June 2014, with the second following in the Fall.
