''Swan'', by Kyoko Ariyoshi, is a classic ballet manga from TheSeventies (specifically, 1976-81) and is notable for being one of the very few {{shoujo}} manga from that era to have been published in English; sadly, though, CMX were only able to release 15 volumes out of 21 before closing down, and so the series is now out of print. The plot follows aspiring young dancer Masumi Hijiri as she pursues her dream to become a star ballerina. Friendships, rivalries, dance competitions, love triangles and oldschool melodrama ensue, along with the kind of vigorous training that makes ''Swan'' feel like {{shoujo}}'s answer to {{shounen}} sports manga.

* HoYay: Kusakabe and Aoi, Luci and Ed. There's also Luci's habit of kissing Leon.



* LesYay: Even in spite of their later love rivalry, Masumi is very ''very'' admiring of Sayoko, and on one occasion even tells her how pretty she looks, before [[LuminescentBlush blushing furiously.]]
** Masumi and Lilliana occasionally have their moments as well. At one point, the latter gives the former a peck on the cheek that makes her blush like crazy.
