About I''s Manga Volume 1

I''s 1 features story and art by Masakazu Katsura.

Shy Ichitaka has a crush on his high school classmate Iori, but ever since she posed for semi-provocative swimsuit photos in a magazine, she's had a lot of sleazy guys hitting on her. Ichitaka's afraid to make his feelings known in case she thinks he's just another creep.

Torn between his physical feelings for Iori and his desire for real love, Ichitaka's life gets more complicated when his childhood friend Itsuki moves back from America and ends up living in his house!

Itsuki's no longer the young girl Ichitaka remembers - she's a babe who is open with her feelings and not shy about walking around in a towel! How will Ichitaka hide a barely clothed Itsuki from his crush Iori?

Don't support censorship!

by

Viz keeps up their grand tradition of screwing up every Masakazu Katsura property they get their hands on by covering up two instances of the scourge of mankind in this volume. Blood 'n' guts? No. Abuse? Nope. The phenomenon that Viz thinks that we're too ill-equipped to handle and need to be protected from is...exposed female nipples. For a 'Shonen Jump Advanced' title (another one in this line, Ultimate Muscle, is receiving the same mistreatment, as is the popular shounen ai title Descendents of Darkness), this is a mighty regressive thing to do. Not to mention that this is a blatant case of double standards, since they have no such qualms about the nudity in Ranma 1/2, Saikano and even Katsura's Video Girl Ai manga (note that, while there was some censorship in that, it was the fault of Jump Comics in Japan, not Viz). Send a paper letter to Viz, to the attention of their marketing department, and let them know that you do not appreciate being treated like an idiot/child and will not buy this or any other manga they've censored until they restore them to the way they should be. Be firm, but don't use any profanity or abusive language, as that would just serve to make your point not be taken seriously.

Once you can get that sorted out (and you can; don't underestimate your power), what you have to look forward to is another romantic comedy/drama similar to Video Girl Ai, minus the magical/sci-fi elements. As usual, Katsura does a wonderful job drawing his characters (especially the girls, of course) and has some fun with fan service. Sometimes he has a little too much fun, which could likely result in even more blatant censorship in later volumes if that's not stopped by then. If you've enjoyed Katsura's work in the past, well, this will be more to enjoy--once the you-know-what-by-now is stopped.
