Hell hath no fury like a heavenly maiden. Horror, Comedy, and Romance Made in Heaven Yuu Watase, the immensely popular writer/artist of the shôjo (girl's) fantasy smash Fushigi Yûgi: The Mysterious Play, has turned her creativity and wry sense of humor to the horror genre with her anime/manga hit Ceres: Celestial Legend. Aya thought she was a normal teenager until she discovered that she can transform into a vastly powerful “heavenly maiden” named Ceres...But Ceres is furious and out for revenge! Celebrities say all kinds of outragious things, don't they? But when Shuro--one half of Japan's hottest pop duo, GeSang--says on national television that not only is he the descendant of a ten'nyo celestial maiden, but that his family also still has in its possession the ten'nyo's celestial robe or hagoromo, Aya and the others spring into action! There's more waiting for them in Okinawa than sold-out concerts and sightseeing, though. Shuro's claims of celestial heritage may be more than just PR spin. Kei (the other half of GeSang) may feel more for his partner than friendship. And Kagami--still plotting away at his nefarious "C-Project"--may be closer to achieving his goals than anyone thinks...
