My last book was Supercute Futures. I love this book. It's a mixture of cyberpunk and kawaii, two things I'm interested in, and a reflection of my long enjoyment of manga.
Mox and Mitsu, owners of the huge Supercute Empire, find themselves under attack by their bitter rivel Moe Bennie. For years they've dominated their ravaged world by having the cutest clothes and cuddliest toys, but now they're obliged to revert to armed violence, something at which they're surprisingly adept. Faced with an overwhelming cyber-assault, hostile drones in the air and mercenaries in the radioactive tunnels below, Supercute are desperately struggling to stay alive. (ISBN: 9780349419343)
From the publisher's blurb - 'A glorious offbeat mix of manga and cyberpunk, this latest by acclaimed author Martin Millar is an unforgettable and timely work of dystopian fiction. A magnificent juxtaposition of determinedly cute, bright and entertaining creatures against the background of a slowly decaying world, this manages to highlight everything that is both terrifying and inspiring about the human condition.'
