Read full description of the books Gakuen Alice, Vol. 04:I came to these manga by the anime, having been introduced to the charming series by my boyfriend, who is always trying to broaden my anime-horizons (I'm not the biggest fan, to be honest, as most anime tends to be either too perverse or opaque for me. My manga experience has also been limited to, I'll admit, the entire run of SailorMoon, even when it got boring and stupid, and a copy of Dragonball Z here and there.) The Gakuen Alice series, of a 10 year-old girl whose love for her best friend has her running away from her country home to the big city, is smart and funny, bringing new life to the boarding-school/magical-kids genre. I'd been looking for the books for a while, and was gratified to find that the larger chain bookstores had recently begun carrying them (Vol 5 due out in December!) I wasn't entirely sure whether the anime had provided a faithful translation, and while there are differences, both versions of the story have proven very entertaining. The manga, in particular, is packed with funny little comments from the author: imagine Harry Potter with a dash of Gossip Girl snark. Overall, a lovely book that made me laugh out loud and tear up in a span of pages. Highly recommended.

Tachibana Higuchi (樋口 橘, HIGUCHI Tachibana), born 1976-03-16 , is a Japanese manga artist. In year 1996, she first made her debut work in Bessatsu Hana to Yume's 5th issue, entitled 5 Gatsu no Sakura (『5月のサクラ』?).
During an interview with Tokyopop, she gave a detailed account of how she started as a mangaka.
"I first submitted a manga story a while after I graduated from high school. Up until then I was studying for the entrance examinations for the Art University, and as part of that, I sometimes drew manga and four-panel strip comics for fun.
"Because I was conscious of the fact that I had started drawing manga in earnest at a later age, I think my progress during the beginning on drawing and storytelling techniques was fast as I frantically tried to absorb everything I could learn about creating manga. After the serialization of the story began, as I got busy, I was so desperate to submit it on time that I feel that the drawings probably haven’t improved much compared to before. During the serialization of the manga, I think my story telling techniques improved more as I concerned myself with how to catch the attention of the readers, how well one can incorporate what the readers are seeking into the story."
Her current ongoing work is Gakuen Alice.
