Kare Kano: Volume 1by Masami Tsuda
Synopses & Reviews
Yukino Miyazawa is the perfect model student. Pretty, kind, good at sports, always at the top of her class. But she's not all she seems. It's all an act of deception; she is really the self-confessed 'queen of vanity,' and her only goal in life is winning the praise and admiration of everyone around her.
When she enters high school, she finally meets her match: Soichiro Arima, a handsome, athletic, popular, and very intelligent young boy. Ever since he stole the top seat in the class from her, Yukino has hated him, and has been plotting on how to take back her former place as the object of all other students' admiration. What she wasn't expecting, however, was that Soichiro, the very boy she hated, would confess his love for her. Or that he would find out about her deception - and use it to blackmail her!
Together, they discover that they have more in common than they knew, and they promise each other that they'll stop pretending to be perfect, and just be their true selves.
Yukino lives for praise and popularity, unwilling to share the spotlight with anyone. But trouble comes in the form of a new boy at school who can do no wrong. She sees him as her archrival; he sees her as a fake. She'll do anything to destroy him...until he tells her he loves her. Turned into a hit anime by the creators of Evangelion, KareKano is one of the most anticipated titles among U.S. fans.

About the Author
Famed manga-ka (manga artist) Masami Tsuda's Kare Kano has become one of the best-known — and most eagerly-awaited — manga series of the last decade. Kare Kano's unique blend of quirky romance and offbeat, novel plot devices are utterly disarming and have engendered a fan base whose numbers are legion.
Kare Kano — originally published in Japan as Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou — is a modern manga masterpiece. The story began appearing in Feburary of 1996 in Hakusensha's monthly LaLa magazine and was collected thereafter in tankoubon (graphic novel) form in the Hana to Yume Comics line. As of this writing (August 2002), there are 13 volumes in print in Japan, and Kare Kano continues to be one of the top-selling manga series in that country.
Hideaki Anno and GAINAX (the creators of Neon Genesis Evangelion) produced an animated version of Kare Kano which comprised 26 TV episodes and is now being released in the U.S. as His and Her Circumstances.
