"Ranmaru Kurisu comes from a family of hardy, rough-and-tumble fisherfolk and he sticks out at home like a delicate, artistic sore thumb. It's given him a raging inferiority complex and a permanently pessimistic outlook. Now that he's in college, he's hoping to find a sense of belonging. But after a whole life of being left out, does he even know how to fit in? It's two months into Ranmaru's college career, and if he's learned one thing, it's that he's really uncomfortable around other people. But when he stumbles into a zombie mob attack, he's forced out of his comfort zone in the most dramatic way possible. Of course it's just a movie shoot, but when he wakes up from his ignoble faint, he's been whisked away behind the scenes with the Art Squad. Could this group of weirdoes be what Ranmaru's been looking for all his life?"--Page 4 of cover.

So begins another fun romp with an unusual school club. Unlike Ouran High School Host Club, Behind the Scenes is set at a college, and includes a more balanced male to female ratio in its main cast. However, that being said, this group is no less unusual than Bisco`s previous work, including plenty of characters with strange quirks such as the female special effects artist who loves gore. All of them are part of the Art Squad, a hardworking, creative group who assists the cmpus movie clubs, all while doing it on a tight budget and tight schedule no less. This hectic, high pressure world is what the timid, and apologetic Ranmaru Kurisu finds himself getting sucked into. Volume one is structured as an introduction for our sake, but nicely fits with the story`s reality, because the group members spend most of the time showing him the ropes. By the end, Ranmaru is drawn in by the charisma of their leader Ryuji Goda, and the promise of a chance to become a better person, and discover what he is good at. Bisco`s art is at the same standard, easily switching between the funny, serious, and other designs that are a trademark of her work. There is always a sweetness, and charm underlying her stories, and Behind the Scenes doesn`t look like it will be an exception.
