Soon Luna who was born in a lab and raised with military training finds herself in a scary situation – high school. Luna is enrolled in Nobel High and goes undercover along with her handlers who pose as her parents; their goal is to uncover Von Brucken's ties to Nobel High… and maybe have some fun like a normal teen!

Personal Thoughts: Though this manga was written in English it manages to feel like a true Japanese manga, though this could be due to the artwork by Shiei. The omnibus make look thick, but it is a quick read that leaves a reader waiting to see what happens to Luna and whether or not she can be a normal teenager or whether fitting in will be too hard for this spy-girl.
