One-Shot for the Weekend – Foo Fighter Fuji

Title: Foo Fighter Fuji

Author: Miyokawa Masaru

Artist: Miyokawa Masaru

Summary: 16 year old Gizagaki Fuji always had a temper and hated the idea of romance. A shooting star suddenly crashed into him and now he’s become an alien’s spaceship?!

Published as a one-shot in Akamaru Jump in 2008.


Well, here I am again, late for this weekend’s one-shot once again. Oh yes, I’ll be recommending another love story again, it’s only appropriate since Valentine’s Day is in two days time.

I was going to offer a sweet, no-stress read for this romantic weekend but I decided to add a twist.

A romance from shounen manga. How shocking.

Now you don’t have to wait for 100 chapters before the couple shows any emotion towards each other. Or in some cases, watch cool men neglect their women(I’m looking at you Conan).

The idea of this one-shot is quite unique and bizarre at the same time. In actual fact this one-shot doesn’t really centralise on romance, it’s a mixed bag. It’s quite commendable for everything to be stuffed into a one-shot.

It’s a relationship between a boy and an alien. It doesn’t exactly break any new ground but it’s a nice one-shot with some nicely drawn action scenes. It sort of pokes a little jiffy on shoujo manga(in a non-offending way) & the aliens are used in a comic manner. I had a few chuckles reading this.

It was romantic in an unconventional way.

Have a wonderful remaining weekend.

Overall Rating: 3.7/5

    OMG, so many anime come to mind (DEARS, Girls Bravo, Vandred(sp), To-RaBu-Ru, etc.)
    Boys sure don’t like earth girls anymore haha jk

    That dude in the second to last panel looks mighty freaky. Is he some sort of evil gator? 😡

    • LOL. *spoilers* that freaky dude is actually the alien girl’s fiancé. I got a really creeped out when he made his appearance too hahaha.
      the only memory i have for vandred was that it was repeated on my anime channel OVER AND OVER AND OVER again for i dnt know. YEARS. they just wnt stop airing it.
      alien girls arent damsels in distress maybe? Lol
