Jōō (嬢王) is a seinen manga and dorama adaptation chronicling a young girl's challenge at a "Jōō Grand Prix" contest in which the best kyabakura hostess (kyabajō) is promised to win 100,000,000 yen (roughly 1 million US dollars). The manga's authors are Ryō Kurashina (story) and Nao Kurebayashi (art).
