reiko, daughter of professor murakami and la mancha, her ever-loyal yojimbo.

in a re-imagined near-future osaka, college freshman reiko gets the shock of her life when she finds out that her estranged father has been mysteriously abducted by the government. the message was relayed by none other than la mancha, one of professor murakami's several cyber-tech experiments--who also used to be reiko's pet dog! now reiko, along with la mancha, must unravel a centuries-old conspiracy to save her father and, eventually, all of japan!

I once read a Hetalia fanfic that totally butchered this old fairy tail.
Wonderful colors, and it's really exciting too.
