The manga deals with topics of importance to adolescents, especially girls, such as menarche, the growth of breasts (and the acquisition of a brassiere), new hair growth, as well as more social matters; all of these are illustrated in appropriate detail.

Naturally, not only children have been taking an interest in this title… Parents concerned to see their daughters well informed also take an interest. You can see more of it below:
