Gr 7 Up&12; What if a modern boy, Hinohara, and a mystical Japanese warrior god, Arata, were to trade places? Such is the premise of Arata . In this installment, Hinohara attempts to cross the evil Kannagi's territory in order to fulfill his destiny. When his trip takes an unexpected detour and he becomes the unwilling guest of one of Kannagi's chief servants, his true identity is certain to be discovered. Meanwhile the mystical Arata, still trapped in Hinohara's human form, begins to adjust to his now-mortal life. As he attempts to learn how to put on a tie and pay attention in school, he also may accidentally solve Hinohara's bully problem with his impressive array of martial-arts talent. Clever and silly, Arata is pure fun in both story line and art. Characters go from serious to exaggerated, expressing intense emotion from panel to panel of black-and-white illustrations. While a delight for fans of the first two volumes, new readers might find themselves lost in a complicated tale; it involves a menagerie of confusing characters woven into an overly sophisticated plot of magic vs. the real world&12; Ryan Donovan, New York Public Library

The first shonen series by acclaimed author Yuu Watase, creator of Fushigi Yûgi and Absolute Boyfriend!

In a mythical world where humans and gods coexist, a ceremony marking the new governing princess is about to occur for the first time in 60 years. Only a girl from the Hime Clan may take this position, but the lack of females born to this family means that a boy called Arata must pose for the role. Meanwhile in modern-day Japan, a boy named Arata Hinohara is starting his new life in high school. He wants to put memories of his difficult past behind him, but things aren't going to be simple when he discovers a mysterious connection to the first Arata...

Hinohara manages to escape his captors, and now he must make his way back to the Amawakuni capital. In order to get there, however, he has to first cross the region ruled by the treacherous Kannagi!
