Cute characters, weird gags, and lots and lots of bananas!

O MAIDENS IN YOUR SAVAGE SEASON GN #1
Legendary anime creator Mari Okada (anohana, Maquia) makes her manga debut with a moving, funny, so-true-it's-sometimes-embarrassing story of high school girls coming of age together.

When one of the club's icebreakers is "say one thing you want to do before you die," one of the girls blurts out "sex." The prudish club president, the class beauty, and the other nerdy girls' reactions are wildly different. Far from a typical sex comedy, O Maidens in Your Savage Season depicts how these girls challenge and support one another when that word pushes them onto a variety of clumsy, funny, painful, and emotional paths towards adulthood.
