Going bananas for love!; like Archie meets Saved by the Bell R to L (Japanese Style). Final Volume! Talk of a future engagement between Haruna and her father's right-hand man puts a damper on Haruna and Macharu's relationship. Macharu fights back in a way only he knows how--by having Haruna live with him! Will monkey love conquer all? Haruna Aizawa thinks that school life is just like a monkey mountain--all the monkeys form cliques, get into fights, and get back together again. The school that she just transferred to is no exception. There's even a boy called Macharu Yamashita who reminds her of a baby monkey!
Shouko Akira made her debut in 1995 with Taiyo-kei ha Kimi no Mono (The Solar System Is Yours), which was serialized in Japan's Deluxe Bessatsu Shojo Comic. She is also the author of Times Two, a collection of five romantic short stories that's available from VIZ Media.
