Puri Puri, Volume 1 is Now Available

San Jose, CA, April 2007. DrMaster Publications Inc. has just announced the publication of Puri Puri, volume 1, an uproarious comedy about the trials and tribulations of a wannabe priest at an all-girls' school by debut author Chiaki Taro.

Masato Kamioda is a devout Christian aspiring to become a priest. He is the only male student at the Saint Sophia Girl's Seminary as part of the reform to repair the moral decline and the lax discipline at the academy. But not all welcome him into the fold, and the Vice President is determined to expel him. Puri Puri is a coming-of-age tale with a twist. It's laugh-out-loud funny, irreverent and even delivers on the fan service. It's a must-have for any manga collector.

Chiaki Taro, a graduate of Seikei University, lives in Kanagawa prefecture in Japan. After graduation, he began drawing illustrations of ceramic arts, drawings for do-it-yourself and how-to books, one-shots for magazines, anthologies, and doujin works. He was asked to work on his first serialization in the monthly comic magazine, Champion, from Akita Publishing. His debut work Premature Priest, a.k.a. Puri Puri, is now in its seventh volume of serialization.


Puri Puri, volume 1 is available NOW with volume #2 shipping in June 2007 for $9.95. Visit www.drmasterbooks.com for more detailed series information.
