Yup, yesterday, which means that the first volume of Arata: The Legend should be on store shelves right now. It's from Yuu Watase, also known as the lady behind Fushigi Yuugi and Ceres: Celestial Legend.

Just to get you pumped for your next bookstore run, here's a bit of background info on this newest entry to VIZ's Shounen Sunday imprint line:

In a world where humans and gods coexist, Arata is the unfortunate successor to the matriarchal Hime Clan--unfortunate because if he's not cross-dressing to hide his gender one minute, he's fleeing for his life the next! When Arata winds up in the modern world and switches places with a boy named Arata Hinohara, it's a wonder which Arata is actually better off...

In Volume 1, Hinohara is the spitting image of Arata, so he suddenly finds himself fighting people after his life! As he navigates through this foreign world filled with power-hungry warriors, who will come to his aid?

Alternate worlds, warriors, and cross-dressing. Something for everyone! Any takers?
