Please give a warm welcome to new guest reviewer, Lorena Nava Ruggero! I first encountered Lorena’s writing at her blog, i heart manga, and I’m thrilled that she has agreed to become a contributor here.
To quote her bio, “Lorena Nava Ruggero is a professional writer and editor in Southern California. She loves nothing more than reading manga with her French bulldog, Rocky, at her side. When she’s not writing reviews or reading manga, she enjoys cooking, hiking and watching movies, including anime. Each year since high school, she has saved up all her nickels and dimes to head to San Diego Comic-Con International, where she immerses herself in all things “nerd” for an all-too-glorious four and a half days. In addition to writing for There it is, Plain as Daylight, she also contributes to MangaCast and writes daily reviews for her own blog, i heart manga.”
Please enjoy Lorena’s first review here, for volume one of Sesuna Mikabe’s Tena on S-String from Yen Press, and make her feel at home!
Also, don’t miss other reviews posted here over the weekend, for the final volume of beloved shojo series Fruits Basket and for the first volume of CMX series Venus Capriccio! Happy Monday!

Hee! She’s sort of the “face” of news here, so I hoped she’d seem welcoming. :)
