Review by Kathy LaFollett
Rizel, a genetic engineering project of the government is a healthy and cheerful 12-year old. Permanently. She is destined to stay prepubescent unless she can find her true love who will help her, through his love, to continue her development.
Rizel also has a problem with her tears. Her sadness can destroy a city block.
Poor Iwaki Tomonori, a 15 year old boy who prefers older women and being left the hell alone is about to have a rude and permanent introduction to engineered contracts and projects.
Tomonori arrives home from school to find Rizel and her "papas" speaking to his parents. The government will take care of his family financially if he will only marry and love Rizel. This isn't a bribe, it's a done deal. At 15, right after the school ended, Tomonori got married and didn't even know it.
Another boy has his eyes set on Rizel, although she will never be interested in him, and the reasoning brings most everything full circle.
"The girl of my dreams just stepped on my face! Did you see Jeeves? Those panties! I vow to make her my wife!" So swears Master Ryuuno-suke.
"Your nose is bleeding." So states his butler, Mr. Obvious.
Rizelmine, is a quirky study into what it means to be human; engineered or otherwise.

I think that Razelmine is so... cute and preciously beautiful!
