Rhysmyth is an original English-language manga series created by writer Anthony Andora and artist Lincy Chan.
Although classified under Romance by Tokyopop, Rhysmyth can be described as a mixture of shōnen-style sports manga, comedy, and high school drama through the lens of underdog heroine Elena.
Lincy Chan, veteran of several Rising Stars of Manga contests, placed in the top-20 a year prior to pitching Rhysmyth.
Volume 1 was published in May 2007 and made the final list for the Young Adult Library Services Association 2008 Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults under the "Anyone Can Play" sports category. It was also nominated for "Great Graphic Novels" for teens.
Volume 2 is scheduled for a May 2008 release.
