Amazing Agent Luna is the story of Luna, the perfect secret agent. A girl grown in a lab from the finest genetic material, she has been trained since her birth fifteen years ago to be the U.S. government’s ultimate espionage weapon. But now she is given an assignment that will test her abilities to the utmost — high school.
In order to uncover an evil plot, the government sends Luna to a prominent high school to pose as a student. Luna’s training has left her completely unprepared to handle the stresses and strains of ordinary teenage relationships — making friends, creating rivals, and having her first big crush on bad boy Jonah, the son of her arch-nemesis, Count Von Brucken! Making matters worse, Luna’s "father" is the overly warm-and-fuzzy Dr. Andy and her "mother" is the always business-like, unemotional Control.
Amazing Agent Luna was a book I had to pick up after reading Amazing Agent Jennifer. I was looking forward to seeing Jennifer aka Control as a grown adult and her interactions with Luna, a special agent born in a lab and raised to be a top secret agent. As you would think, she is rather naive when sent into the real world, not knowing what friendship or other relationships truly mean.
When her latest mission brings her to become a normal high school student, we see Jennifer in the role of her mother and starting to fit into that although it is against her nature. Luna seems to have caught the eye of bad boy Jonah, who happens to be the son of the evil Count Von Brucken. Of course, the missions she is on will lead her to become closer to Jonah and it's interesting to see the interactions between the two.
I absolutely loved the graphics of the manga and will be looking forward to the next volume. I'm glad that we also see Control in an uncomfortable role as a mother and cannot wait to see how that goes further on in the volumes. I love Dr. Andy, who just cracks me up and really is a bit of an icebreaker in the storyline.
Amazing Agent Luna is a series I am eager to read on with and I am looking forward to all of the action and drama in the next volumes.
