Thanks you for inviting me to join this club:)
I don't know Yoshimizu Wataru sensei very well, but I love her manga especially Ultra Maniac, and also Datte Suki Nandamon.
I think maybe I should grab Marmalade Boy to read since I heard many good recommends for this =p

*snif* thank you ^^; But I still think it's bad of me to have (even involuntarily) taken all the pictures spots, especially since now there are mangas without a single image of them ^^;; while some other have many of the same character ;) I'll just wait and see what the creator or offcier of the Club will do about it ^-^;
