Summary

Summary

Yuu Watase, the immensely popular writer/artist of the shôjo(girls) fantasy smash Fushigi Yûgi: The Mysterious Play, has turned her creativity and wry sense of humour 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!

Hell hath no fury...or, in this case, Heaven, as it's a celestial maiden or "ten'nyo"who's unleashing it! The search for Ceres' hagoromoor "celestial robes" brings the action back to Tokyo - to Miyagi, specifically, where rumours of a spectral white dog ("figuring in the celestial legend!," says Suzumi) prompt a transfer to girls-only high school for Aya, Chidori, and...Yûhi?! Connected to the dog's increasingly frequent attacks is a sweet and popular girl named Maya Hirobe, but why - and more importantly, how - is she involved? Is it possible that Maya is a C-Genome...and doesn't even know it?
