Takemoto Novala. Kamikaze Girls. San Francisco: Viz Media, 2008. [Originally published in Japanese as Shimotsuma Monogatari, 2005.]

Shimotsuma Monogatari tells the story of Momoko, a Lolita who moves with her father from Amagasaki in Hyogo prefecture (right between Kobe and Osaka, for those of you following along at home) to the comparative hinterland of Shimotsuma in Ibaraki prefecture, north of Tokyo. In her rural exile Momoko meets Ichigo, a Yanki biker chick, and the two form what has to be one of the most unlikely friendships in literature, based solely on their respect for each other's wish to do whatever the hell they want, and get along.

The true spirit of Rococo is anarchy. )

Yeah, I'm just going to post this. It is, I suppose, a sneak peek for my Holmes Big Bang story even though it is set two years after the action of same (during the events of the 2009 movie, as you'll see) and contains one (or two, depending how you count it) extremely minor spoilers for the story, though the sneak peek is not my primary posting impulse. Comments of all stripes very welcome.
