Top 9 reads from Manga-Mania May.

Well, I'm done with the 31 reviews, but May is not over yet. So I will make a top nine over the mangas I read this month. But I will make the rule that a manga I read before MM May cant be on the list, it can solely be the once I read this month. And because I already reviewed them, I will only leave a short summary of the manga, along with a link to the review(the title is the link).
Number 9 Romeo X Juliet.
Neo-Verona was once peacefully ruled by the Capulet family, but the Montague-family destroyed them and took over. Fourteen years later, Lord Montague rules Neo-Verona with an iron fist. But one of the Capulets are still alive: Juliet. She is prepared to avenge her family, and stop the tyranny, but there is a problem: Juliet has fallen in love with Lord Monague's son, Romeo.
Shinjou has for the most of his young life been the bland and boring guy nobody wanted to hang out with. He has therefor decided that he will let his first day in high-school, where no one knows him, be a restart of his life. He transform himself to hunk, and ready to take the school with storm.
But oddly enough, a girl from his old school, named Kurai, has decided to do the exact same thing by turning herself from not to hot, also hoping to get a fresh start. Recognizing each other as former fellow social outcasts, they then make a bet about who can get a girlfriend/boyfriend first.
Number 7 Mahou No Iroha.

Naoki is going to(20 years from now) become a tyrant duo to his unhappy youth, and will also be executed after being thrown of the throne. Iroha believes that she can save her father by making sure that he will grow up happy, and she is ready to use every single magical girl trick she has.
