Manga goes mainstream! Random House launches Tanoshimi, its impressive manga imprint, with the very best manga Kodansha, one of Japan's leading publishers, has to offer!
Ponta is a puppy with the magical ability to turn into a girl. Now she's attending high school and living with the Koizumi family. Understanding little about the human world leads Ponta into all sorts of trouble, so it's a good thing her boyfriend Mirai is usually there to bail her out!
Thanks to the invention of the Guru Guru Bone, Ponta can now change from puppy to teenage girl at will. But human customs are hard to master, and she keeps finding herself in strange and awkward situations. Will Ponta have to spend Christmas in the dog pound? Will she ever attract her one true love, cute high school boy Mirai? She's certainly lovable enough – maybe that's why transfer student Go Fujinaga falls for her instantly! Romantic misadventures ensue, as Go moves heaven and earth to induce beautiful, innocent Ponta to look his way. . .
