Oh wow! That's pretty awesome right there. I can't believe I somehow missed this.

Used my extremely limited Japanese to try to make sense of it a little.

The heroine name is Eighth Wonder, for both of them. The mother's name is Athena, and the daughter's is Clara.

They have 7 powers (although I think the text hints at more undiscovered ones.)
1. Flight (at mach 20)
2. Strength (can lift 40 tons and shatter 100 mm thick armor plates)
3. enhanced senses.
4. Laser vision.
5. Invincible body. (Says that explosives energy beams and poison gas won't affect them)
6. Animal empathy and communication.
7. And...something generation. I can't make this one. Too many Kanji I don't know. Doesn't help that there's no picture of it.


Author's definitely a superheroine fan. He says the main reason he made it was he wanted to write about Supergirl and Powergirl but can't because he doesn't work for DC. Which is why Clara looks like Supergirl and Athena looks like Powergirl.

Nice find! Fan Service written and drawn by someone who is also obviously a fan himself

Let's wait for the second volume to be translated (?) :woohoo:

Meanwhile, I stumbled into this randomly (starting from that manga or maybe it was also posted here, I don't know, sleepy right now lol !) www.gao-subs.com/manga/sidekicks/volume_x/chapter_0/

"Even if people are born with super powers, they must serve as sidekicks of superheroes in order to become superheroes themselves. Dream Girl has the power to make people fall asleep. She is the sidekick of Darkslug, who is not a great hero compared to his reputation. One day, Dream Girl and Theo work together to get rid of villains and save the world."

Strange design (looks more like snapshots from a low budget anime, probably it's fan-made) and the story is a little odd and confused - sometimes too dark and violent and others almost comical, but at least in the early chapters "Dream Girl" shows some nice feats (flying, superstrenght, etc.) :whistle:

Ps. A lot of pages in the later chapters are cut in half or in the top/bottom, whoever posted this failed terribly ^^ (unless it was intended to be like that, but I don't think so).

Some picture of from the author's Twitter about "Uchi no Musume ni Te o Dasu na!"

The more I see about this manga, the more I wish someone would "scanlate" it.

So I brought up Fairy Tail before, and while there are some super powerful girls of course, they've recently added a new one. Or rather she's been in the anime/manga since the start but as of the recent timeskip the main girl, Lucy, previously one of the weaker girls in the series who was limited to summoning creatures to fight for her, gained the ability to use the creatures power for herself, one of which is super strength.

She's only used it once so far, and she has to don a rather silly looking outfit to use it, but here's her shattering the ground with a whip strike and grabbing a random dude and smashing him into a bunch of his pals like bowling pins.

Since another of her creatures has super speed, she probably has a form that can use that too, but she's yet to use that one.
