Taamo titles featured in this sale:
Ema Toyama is an award-winning manga creator whose works are full of attractive girls and boys, bounded by the power of secrets! In her first long-running breakthrough series, Missions of Love, the high school girl with the heart of an “ice queen” appoints the popular, yet black-hearted student body president to be her sim-boyfriend … all for the sake of research for her novel! If you are into complicated love stories check out more of her works!
Taamo is just one of the many “hidden gem” creators. Her first work, House of the Sun, is the moving account of a young woman who reconnects with a childhood friend as she puts together the pieces of her life following her parents’ broken marriage. Her follow up work, I’m in Love and It’s the End of the World, is about a girl who’s always seen herself as the negative to her twin sister’s beautiful photograph, and the handsome boy who just won’t give up on her. Not too many creators tackles the subtle yet complex relationships around a family like Taamo does. If you’ve liked one of her works, you’ll probably like the other one too!
