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!
Rivalry is the name of the game in this new adventure, as Ponta discovers the obstacles in her path to winning Mirai's love. First there's Mirai's mother, a woman with very strong ideas about the type of girl her son should involve himself with. Can Ponta ever measure up to a mother's expectations?
Then Ponta meets Mirai's ex-girlfriend, Hana. After leaving high school, Hana became a Japanese pop idol. Now she's back and wants to relive old times. But first she'll have to contend with Ponta . . . whose bite may be worse than her bark!
