Angelic Layer Volume 1 TP – Another CLAMP classic returns to print! Junior-high student Misaki Suzuhara attends the prestigious Eriol Academy and plays the arena game Angelic Layer, where players control a miniature robot fighter called an Angel with their minds. Misaki and her Angel Hikaru are small, but Misaki’s natural battle skills make her a contender. She may be in way over her head, though, and enthusiasm in an arena full of much more experienced fighters can only take her so far. Originally published by Tokyopop in the aughts, this exciting series from the well-known creative team CLAMP returns from Dark Horse in omnibus format for a new generation of comic readers. This title is a good addition to any tween or teen collection.
