Yuu Watase, the immensely popular writer/artist of the shôjo (girl's) fantasy smash Fushigi Yûgi: The Mysterious Play, has turned her creativity and wry sense of humor to the horror genre with her anime/manga hit Ceres: Celestial Legend. Aya thought she was a normal teenager until she discovered that she can transform into a vastly powerful “heavenly maiden” named Ceres...But Ceres is furious and out for revenge!
Survival Of The Species
Escorted about the facilities of the C-Project laboratories like the prize Mikage breeding-stock she is, Ceres uses the existence of Tôya's child, now thriving inside her, to taunt the monomaniacal Kagami. An outraged Kagami tries to kill Ceres, but will another's sacrifice be enough to protect this "First Mother" of all Celestial Maidens? Aya, initially horrified by Ceres' claim to be "no different" than her relative, Kagami, eventually receives from Ceres the truth--about the past, about how things really were between her and the Progenitor...and about the shocking nature of the mysterious ten'nyo or "celestial maidens" themselves.
