Just gotta love Shojo Manga's!

I have tons of shojo manga's to recommend and my list is endless! I had time to do a couple after work. I'm so tired!

Title: Crimson Hero
Genres: Romance, Comedy, Slice of Life, Shojo
Reading Direction: Right to Left
Age Rating: 13+ Teen
Status: Ongoing (It's going to kill me!! > x <)

Summary: (mangareader.net) All that matters to 15-year-old Nobara Sumiyoshi is volleyball-she is an awesome player with big-time ambitions. But sometimes it seems like a girl just can not get a break in the competitive world of high school volleyball. Nobara's family wants her to inherit the role of young mistress, serving rich patrons at her family's old-fashioned Japanese restaurant. No thanks! When Nobara transfers to Crimson Field High School, known for its top-notch volleyball team, it turns out that her mother will stoop to dirty tricks to keep her off the court. With assistance from her feisty Aunt Momoko, who is got some connections at Crimson Field, Nobara decides to start playing offense.

I really enjoy the storyline! At first I couldn't bear to read this manga because of the art but I got over that and I ended up falling in love with it. I really admire all the characters determination and their love for volleybal. It's really amazing and very heartwarming!!

The art......gets better of course. I don't mind it. But I think it really suits the manga so I have nothing against it. The guys are pretty good looking too. Hehe......

Title: Haruka~ Beyond the Stream of Time, Harukanaru Toki no Naka de - Hachiyou Shou, 遙かなる時空の中で ~八葉抄~
Author: Tohko Mizuno
Genres: Romance, Comedy, Shojo, Fantasy, Action
Reading Direction: Right to Left
Age Rating: 13+ Teen
Status: Ongoing

Summary: (wiki) On her walk to school, ordinary Kyoto High school student Motomiya Akane hears a voice calling to her from an old well in an abandoned historical estate. The voice is that of the oni leader Akuram, and Akane finds herself summoned into another world that resembles the city of Kyoto during the Heian Period (approx. 800-1200 C.E.). Here she is asked to be the Ryuujin no Miko, a legendary figure who possesses the power of the gods. Akane is told that she must defend this world, called Kyou, from the encroachment of the Oni Clan before she can return home. Fortunately, her school friends Tenma and Shimon are on hand to help her out and along with six Kyou natives they become members of the Hachiyou a group of specially chosen men who act as the Miko's protectors.

This manga/anime is so great! For some reason it reminds of Inuyasha because Akane is sent back in time and she hears a voice in a well. Kagome from Inuyasha, uses a well to go to transport back in time whenever she needs too. I found out about this manga when I started reading the shojo magazine, Shojo beat. Since then, I have been addicted to the characters and storyline. I'm frustrated because I can't most of the chapters!

I really love the art! The guys are utterly hot! I must master the style.......Akane is really cute! Typical shojo character she is. She is totally lucky.....she has so many hot guys hanging around her. > 3 <

The art is pretty sexy and hot! The story is brilliant!!! The manga is a squel to Yurara. I haven't read it before and I definetly will because of there were some references from Rasetsu to the manga Yurara.

I become really attached to each of the characters.....they are just so cool and funny! The manga is really romantic........sniff sniff......its so amazing!!! >////<

Anime Recommendation: Seikon No Blacksmith

Since it was boxing day today, I had work today. Not very smart to work today. So.....sore....from work. It was totally insane!!! > x < People just kept coming and coming! I didn't have a break in such a long time!! @_@

Anyways, enjoy my anime recommendation!

File:The Sacred Blacksmith vol01.jpg

Summary: (animeseason.com) The story takes place after an abominable war that foisted a "devil's contract" upon a land. Cecily Campbell, a former noble's daughter who joined a knighthood, encounters a man who dispatches some hoodlums with one sweep of a mysterious sword. The man possesses the power of the same "devil's contract" that has become taboo, now that peace has been restored. Cecily has been searching for a blacksmith who can repair an old sword she inherited from her father, and that mysterious young man happens to be blacksmith named Luke. This encounter launches their adventures together.

The art for the anime is just amazing!!! If you ignore the big breasts, then everything is fine! I'm quite happy that the anime didn't keep its focus on the boobs and fan service. I really disappointed by the main character. Her will is strong but she is physically weak. I hate that!!! > x < I read somewhere that Cecily is quite strong and has good leadership skills in the light novel but not in the anime/manga!! Why can't they give her such a good character???

Anyways, I will now turn to Luke. The total hotty. I just love him!!! I don't know....he is just so hot!! The art is soo amazing!!! The story is amazing too!! I have read nothing like it! I'm so happy!


Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas and have a Happy New year!!!

I know today is boxing day but I didn't have to post on Christmas eve and Christmas. So many parties......and work. I stayed up till like, 2:00 in the morning on Christmas eve (technically it's Christmas but whatever) and partied. I ate so much.....I'm so happy! Plus my family just decided to open presents at midnight because we didn't have time in the morning. That's my Christmas for you. But I got lots and lots of manga books!!! I need a bigger book shelf.....

I can't believe it.......Christmas has come and gone........I got some great stuff this year!!! Oh! Oh!!!! I got soo many manga books from my best friend!!!! In the first package, there was all 10 volumes of Wild Ones.

Upon meeting her grandfather, she meets the ever popular Rakuto, her protector. That's right. Her protector. Sachie finds herself falling in love with him. Can she find a place in her family and get the guy at the same time?

I just love this manga!! It's so funny, heartwarming and really romantic......I actually loved the ending of the manga. It was in the middle of bad and good. It's better than most of the endings I read. The storyline is quite predictable but the manga still has a sense of originality. Sachie really does look like her mother just to point that out. I really love Rakuto's character! It's so funny and cute! Also the art is really cute! Rakuto is sooo extremely hot! :D

In the second package (I opened it at midnight of Christmas eve...) I got 1-13 volumes of D.N Angel! I'm soo happy~!!! I also got volume 12 of We Were There. I feel extremely bad because both of my best friends from up north sent packages........I got the first and I got so much manga books!!! Plus Adeah told me that she sent her package.......I feel so bad!!! Sniff....sniff......I have to pay them back!!!

Ha....ha.....dark....your so hot.....

I'm frustrated because so far volume 14 of D.N Angel (I think) came out and I need it!!! > x < Why did the manga have to go on hiatus?!?! It got really good too!!! GRR......the chapters aren't coming out fast enough!!!

I really need to. I have to recommend you guys this awesome drama!! My gosh, the korean drama, Personal taste is the funniest drama I've ever seen!!! (Well the current top one for my list). The characters are just different and storyline is......a bit different. It makes me smile so much!!
Lee Min Ho is in it!!!! >///< Kyaa!!!

However that doesn't stop her from giving people the benefit of doubt and Jin Ho is no different. How will Kae In react when she finds out that her gay roommate is not actually gay at all and that he has fallen for her?

I JUST LOVE THIS DRAMA!!! It is soo funny!! I love this storyline!!! Reading alot of Yaoi influenced me and yeah.......the fact that he isn't gay makes me laugh so hard when Kae In thinks he is gay. I love all the misunderstandings and everything!!! For a minute they think he is gay then they don't. It's incredible!!! Lee Min Ho is such a great actor!!! >///<

Before you go, I would like you to watch this video!! It's so funny! :D

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!!! ^_^

It's finally Christmas break!

I would like to thank everybody who has been reading my blog! You don't know how much it makes me so happy that people are reading my blog! I have so many views.......so many......my gosh.......I think I almost fainted when I had 700 views that one day.

I'm soo happy that its finally christmas break!! No more school and stressing homework!!! WHOO HOO! My birthday has passed and I'm finally the age I want to be! Happy Birthday to me.....Happy Birthday to me...... ^_^ It sucks to be the last one turn my age.......at least I would be the last one in my friend group to turn 30! Haha!

Christmas is just around the corner! My best friend sent me this box full of stuff and I can't open it until christmas day......I know there is manga books in there!! > x < I wanna open it right now!!!

I apologize for not posting in such a long time. On friday I had so much to do! A book report, a poem book that was due on monday and a french and science exam on tuesday. School was just really stressing for the last couple days before the break. Last week I got sick and it was really bad. I hate getting sick.....that means I get to miss school and homework will get piled up. I hate homework.....if it had guts, I would hate it's guts. :D

Now that it is break, I have time to watch and read anything I want!!! I have tons of stuff to recommend you guys so please look forward it!!

This korean drama I will now recommend you is called The Musical. It is actually pretty and really inspirational for me. I don't know how this has to do with anything but it doesn't matter if you can't sing or not! As long as you have the determination to practice (I personally hate to practice singing for that matter), you will get better!! Just like this girl from The Musical. It's pretty funny how she can feel like she is living in an actual musical. I know some people like that. They are pretty crazy but funny at the same time. I love them! ^_^

My choir just preformed our concert a couple weeks ago. It was my first true concert! I'm so proud of myself for keeping up with everyone and their amazing voices! :D

Hong Jae-Yi (Daniel Choi) is an ultra-talented composer who becomes involved in a love triangle with Ko Eun-Bi and Bae Kang-Hee (Ok Joo-Hyun). Bae Kang-Hee is a musical diva, full of confidence and pride in herself.
I'm still in the middle of episode one and I just fell in love with it! I think its pretty funny that Eun-Bi can actually feel like she is living in a musical. Sometimes I feel like I want to run away to a world like an anime. It would be so cool! :D I can picture it in my head.......hot guys every where........hehe......<3

Title: Rave Master
Author: Hiro Mashima
Genres: Comedy, Adventure, Shonen, Action, Fantasy
Reading Direction: Right to Left
Age Rating: 16+ Older Teen
Status: Completed
Summary: (from wikipedia)

The main character Haru Glory, is chosen by the holy artifact known Rave to wield the Ten Powers and go on a quest with the strange dog like creature known as Plue to find the other four remaining Rave stones and put an end to the usage of Dark Bring and bring peace to the world. In his travel fate brings him to ally himself with a girl that lost her memories and believes she is named Elie and is unaware that she has a strong involvement with the Rave stones. Together they gain allies on their quest known as the Rave Warriors which consist of the thief that can manipulate silver known as Hamrio Musica, a cartographer which is the strange blue creature known as Griffon Kato, Let Dahaka and Julia who are both martial artists and members of a species from the mystic realm known as the Dragon Race, Ruby a rich penguin-like sentenoid and Belnika, a kind sorceress.


I just finished watching the anime and I love it soo much!!! The storyline is just brilliant! Just seeing the anime, Haru is really hot!!!! The various characters just make me sooo extremely happy!! Especially Plue! I love him!!! > u < If you watched the anime Fairy Tail (by the same creator!) you would recognize Plue is one of Lucy's spirit's. I love how nobody knows his actually gender and what he is! It always makes me smile when they try to figure it out!

The beginning of the anime started out a bit rocky but after that, it started to get so much better. I can tell that Elie and Haru has something going on. But I have to make sure, I need to read the manga! As always, Hiro Mashima makes the most loveable characters in the world.

Plue is on the right. The blue thing on the left is named Griff. I really love him too! He is such a prevert but he just makes me laugh so much! I just want to know, what do you think Plue is? So far in the anime/manga the characters think he is a dog. Elie thinks he is a bug. I honestly don't know what to call Plue. He is pretty close to a dog. I really think Griff is a type of jelly fish. But that is what I think. :D

My addiction to Action and Mystery Drama's

At school, we started on short stories and reading mystery stories, like Sherlock Holmes. I just watched the new movie, Sherlock Holmes and I really think this guy is pretty cool and amazing. I am now into the Sherlock Holme stories and now into stuff that kinda near mystery and such.

As of now, I have been watching a whole wack of drama's with action like Jackie Chan and mystery like the t.v show, CSI or whatever. I'm not really sure if the drama's that I've watched is as gruesome as CSI but yeah.  I'm really addicted to them right now! > x <

Title: Spy Myung Wol
Type: Korean Drama
Genres: Comedy, Romance, Action
Age Rating: 13+ Teen
Status: Completed

Summary: (wiki) An elite North Korean spy, Han Myung Wol, and her partner, Choi Ryu, infiltrates South Korea on a mission to disrupt the Hallyu Wave by kidnapping one of their top stars, Kang Woo. Despite her proficiency at her job, Myung Wol's one weakness is her uncontrollable curiosity. Hijinks ensue when she falls in love with Kang Woo instead.

I personally think that this drama is really amazing and crafted into a great story with action, romance (I just love the romance!) and comedy. It's so great!!! > x < I can't help but think how cool Myung Wol is when she beats the socks out of people. :D Even her character is really adorable! Wait! Kang Woo is the one that should take that title! It's so funny! You have to watch it!!

The character Myung Wol has no idea what love feels like because she has been training all the time and she has no time to do anything with a guy. I really love the development she has with Kang Woo. Throughout the drama, she gradually develops a feeling for him. Same goes to him. He is so arrogant and short tempered but he seems to start to grow some strong feelings for her. I just love how it turns out!! Sigh! It makes me happy thinking about the things they have been through. I just the story!

It's really cool how the story turns a different direction each time and I (I think its just me, who knows) never expect it. You'll know what I mean if you watched it. :D

It kinda bothers me that the whole thing is a "mission". I don't know why but it just does. I just hate it how they treat it like that. Either way, the story turned out to be really good so I don't blame them that they made it a "mission".

I love the actors!!!! The guys are soo hot! >Dies<

However, a year later, her former boss (played by Sugimoto Tetta) calls upon her to return to work, so she begins leading a double life as a housewife and a spy.


Just so you know, I'm like on episode 4 or 5. So far it's acceptable for my standards. Wait, I think its really really really really really cool!

Also I think its really cool to see a house wife turn into a completely different person when she does her job. I love her methods of how to solve problems and the case. The way she fights makes me want to respect her. She is really cool! I love the action!!


The storyline is just amazing! It has a very light humor, it's not overly funny but acceptable. It's really cute! I love her kid!! :D

Title: HUNTER Sono Onnatachi Shoukin Kasegi
Type: Japanese Drama

Rei then becomes a bounty hunter earning money from cash rewards place by the government on unsolved cases. Rei forms a team for her new job with a junior flight attendant and a housewife.

This is quite an interesting drama. Rei Isaka is a really cool and pretty lady. It's pretty sad that she doesn't have a boyfriend.

Anyways, I just got into this drama and I personally think it is ok and a little too cheesy for me. I think it will get better and I'm still curious about it. I love the different characters too!

Boy Band News- 4 Member band?

I recently got the news that the boy bad NEWS is now a four member band. What is up with that???? I'm really sad!!! Ryo Nishikido and Tomohisa Yamashita left the group.......why?!?! It will never be the same without them!! I really loved it when there was six of them! T_T

According to Wikipedia (I just had to look it up), Ryo left because of schedule of problems and it made him less active with the group. He decided to continue with another band, Kanjani Eight. I am also a fan of that band! ^_^ Yamashita left because he wanted to concentrate on solo projects. Sigh.....I miss them!!!

Ryo is really hot!! >///<

Even Tomohisa.......I think I love him the most!!! Kyah~!!!! 0////0

No matter what happens, I will support them all! I love you news!!



Drama Fever!

First off I would like to start of with.......I'm really happy!!! Just a while ago was my first singing concert with a choir I just joined! I suck at singing but I must admit, singing with pro's are fun.

Pro's? Oh, well they are teenagers like me but they have more singing experience than me. I just started. I think I'm doing ok. Their voices are soo amazing!! I'm in total bliss when I listen to them. It makes me extremely happy! Though I can't figure out how to sing loud.......

Today it snowed!!! There was soo much and it was colder today! I was sooooo extremely very happy!! It just made my day! Don't look at me funny! I prefer the cold than the warmness......is that even a word? Oh well.
Anways, that is what I have been doing for the past few days other than tests and homework. I have a giant French unit exam on Tuesday (yay me!). I apologize for not posting in a while once again. I have no better excuse. I'm sorry! > x <

Whenever I had time I would try to watch lots of Drama's and Anime's and most of the time, I never had time to post because I just into the drama or anime. I haven't found any good anime's for me to watch so I just went for the drama's because well, I don't watch very many of them. I recently got into the Korean Drama, Warrior Baek Dong Soo. I feel really bad for not watching this drama a while ago. But I have started it now so it is all good! :D

Title: Warrior Baek Dong Soo
Type: Korean Drama
Genres: Comedy, Action, Adventure
Status: Completed
Age Rating: 16+ Older Teen

Summary: Set in the Joseon Dynasty during King Jeongjo's reign, this martial-arts fusion sageuk is centered around the events involving Crown Prince Sado's conspiracy. Warrior Baek Dong Soo was a real-life legend who created a martial arts guide in Joseon. His group who defends King Jeongjo is pitted against the mysterious organization of assassins who plot to kill the King. (wikipedia)

The storyline is really amazing!!! I feel like it started out pretty slow in the beginning. But after that, it started to get really interesting. I was really drawn to the layered storyline and awesome action! It really inspires me to learn some Karate. But I'm not that coridinated to do Karate. I would probably get myself killed trying kick someone.

The bonds between the characters are so touching. I always find myself crying when one of the characters are like at the brink of death. Especially when his/her friend is crying for them. I just have this emotional attactment with the characters! They are amazing actors!

The actors are extremely hot!!! I really love this one character, Yeo Woon, whenever he shows up and shows off his sweet fighting skills...I practically die!! >/// x ///<   I love you~!!!


Title: Flower Boy Ramyun Shop

Age Rating: 13+ Teen

Summary: Yang Eun Bi is a college student studying to become a teacher. She wants to live a normal life like everybody else. Marry a nice guy and get a stable job and live in a nice house. Unfortunately for her, its not that easy.

She has a pretty bad temper and she can't seem to pass the exam......and this year she has to pass it. Or the next year is the 3rd year that she has to take it, which she thinks is a bad luck year. Thanks to a fortune teller, whoever she kisses will be her "destined" partner. That same day, she meets Cha Chi Soo, the son of the head of the biggest food corporation in Korea. Due to events, he almost kisses her.

After meeting him again, she assumes that he is wayy older than her. But that isn't true. She goes to a high school and she becomes a teacher (ish.....I forgot what she was doing but I know she was some kind of assistant teacher or temporary teacher of some sort). She meets Cha again. This time she asks him if he can go out with her.

After her first class, tt turns out that he is a high school student. Great.

At first, I thought Eun Bi was just completely nuts. I didn't really like her character at the beginning but as the story kept going, her character developed a bit and it made love her right away. She is really cool when she plays volleyball and her temper just makes most of her. She is really interesting.

I really love the storyline! It's great! I thought that after the first 5 episodes were like, "meh" to me but certain parts had its great times. After the episode 5, it was just amazing. I'm really mad that this drama is ongoing and the episodes don't seem to be coming out fast enough!! > x <

I really love the guys in this drama! Cha Chi Soo and Choi Kang Hyuk are just soooo funny!! They are total players when you first see them. Plus, they are really hot!! *Dies* Why does Korean guys have to really hot?!?

I feel pretty bad that I haven't watched this drama a while ago. It is really amazing!! I just watched the first episode (I know that is pretty sad) and I fell in love with it. The storyline is different. Art is involved and I really love art. I also really love gender benders. I have nothing much to say but you have to watch it! You will not regret it!!! I feel like there is alot that will be going on after the first episode. You have to watch it!!

Happy Halloween!!

I know Halloween in Canada was yesterday but I didn't have time to post yesterday! Man this month is going pretty fast. I can't believe it's November already......that means a month or so until my birthday!

Guess what??! For the first time in my life (I think), I went trick or treating!!! I had sooo much fun!!! I know, I have no life but my parents don't like Halloween but this year, they let it go. My siblings were pretty psyched. I didn't dress up but my siblings did. They went as pirates. I was "supervising" them and I ended up trick or treating wih them. I got my own big pillowcase full of candy. I was really happy about that! Heheh......chocolate....... (drools)

At my school yesterday, there were pretty interesting costumes. One teacher dressed as a lego person. His costume was made out of card board and I'm kicking myself because I didn't take a picture of it. But it kinda looked this.

His outfit was painted Black and green to match what he was wearing. I'd say, it was probably my favorite costume this year.

Also my best friend's costume was pretty downright awesome. She dressed up as the MC from some musical. I forgot what it was called. She had this sweet suit with tails (I love tails!), a sweet hat and a cane! I loved it!! Her makeup was really cool too!!! > x <

I didn't dress up of course and I wore normal clothes that day but my friends kept calling me Kirby because I wore a pink sweater and jeans. I am not Kirby!! I'm not fat!!! But I am cute. Haha!

I know I haven't been posting very often but I have my reasons (argh, school). I practically live in my room (that is really true) studying for some test, taking a nap from the lack of sleep, reading a novel that has to be read for school or........doing homework and some other stuff. I don't have time to read manga or watch very much anime. I'm sad and a failure for an otaku!!

*Ahem*.....That aside, other than school getting into my way, I somehow manage to get some time to read manga and watch anime. I think staying up late watching Hikaru no Go is the reason why I'm tired today......(shrugs shoulders). Or maybe just studying for another science test. I have so many of those. I hate science.....

It also snowed for a bit yesterday!! I love snow!!! I wish it would snow tomorrow.....

What is wrong with being an Otaku? Geez.

Anyways, I have running been around and debating on watching the anime for so long. I know Hikaru no Go has been around for a long time and I am one of those people who hasn't watched it yet. If you are surprised, please don't look like that. (If not, just skip this part) I bet there are some people in the world who haven't heard of Naruto, Bleach, Inuyahsa and some other popular manga's in the world. It's true! I met a person who- wait a second.......no that's a lie. Nevermind. Just ignore that last comment.

Have you met people who have heard of the manga/anime and never read/watched it? Well, I'm that type of person. I have heard of Gintama and +Blood but I have never read the manga or watched the anime. There are quite a bit of them but I won't go on. The list may be endless. Most of the time, out of a whim, I would try to watch the anime or read the manga.

File:Hikaru no Go.jpg

Title: Hikaru no Go
Author: (Story) Yumi Hotta and (Art) Takeshi Obata (Artist of Bakuman and Death Note)
Genres: Shonen, Fantasy, Comedy, School life, Supernatural
Reading Direction: Right to Left
Age Rating: 13+ Teen
Status: (Anime) Completed and (Manga) Completed

Summary: (mangareader.net) After stumbling across a haunted Go board, irresponsible Hikaru Shindo discovers that the spirit of a master player has taken up residence in his consciousness. In his pursuit of the Divine Move, Fujiwara-no-Sai awakens in Hikaru an untapped interest and genius for the game, and soon the schoolboy is chasing his own dream--defeating the famed Go prodigy Akira Toya!

I just love the anime! I just started on two (or a couple? I lost track) Sundays ago (I stayed up until 2 am, no joke) and I'm currently on epsiode 14, 15......around there. If you think that isn't alot, I watched that many on Sunday. I had sooo much homework. I'll let you think for a second on how much 14-15 episodes on Sunday was well, good and bad in a way.

Try watching an anime while studying for a science test. Pretty Hard. Staying up until 2 am. Pretty late for me.

Hikaru No Go 1 - Page 3

Anyways, I'm really addicted!

So far (I'm at like episode 16), I think that the anime has so much potential, inspiration, comedy and a whole bunch of things! I'm really in love with the art. I think it's really cool!! It gets better and better! I couldn't believe that the artist was Takeshi Obata. I was like, "Your my hero!" I really love his art alot!

I was looking at some video's and images of Hikaru no Go and I spotted older Hikaru!!!
Oh. My. Gosh.

The man is hot. He may look pretty average but he is not too bad. Too be honest, when I saw the picture, it partly made me decide to watch the anime until the very end. I know, I'm weird. Also the storyline partly also made me want to watch the anime until the very end.

The storyline is really interesting and unique. I'm really intrigued by the game of Go. Of course I have never heard of the japanese game Go until this anime. I wanted to know alot more about Go so I kept watching.

The game Go is really interesting. I'm slowly getting what the characters are sorta doing but most of time, I have no clue what the heck they are doing. The game is pretty confusing......but I just go with it and pretend that I know how they are playing the game for now.

Summary: (from Tokyopop) Wonderland is offically at war! And Alice is trapped in the middle of it all. Will she make it out alive? A little arrogant, stubborn, and determined to get back home, Alice isn't fazed by these challenges....until she discovers that every man is gun crazy and weirdly in love with her. What's going on in Wonderland?!

First of all, I got intrigued by the art and two, the part where it said guns I was like, "I'm going to try it". I am pretty a violent person. Also the part where it said, Wonderland really wanted me to read it. I'm really fond of the story of Alice in Wonderland. I was pretty excited when I heard there was a manga form of it. Also there's a movie!! WAH! I'm going to totally watch it!! > o <

The story is quite interesting. I sorta had a feeling like there would be some kind of reverse harem in this manga. I get pretty freaked out when the guys are like in love with her. I get curious why because usually guys you just meet never fall in love with you in an instant. I can understand if only one guy would but a whole bunch? That's pushin it. In total (I'm estimating) the girl meets about 7-10 guys and they happen to fall in love with her.

Anyways, I really do recommend this manga if you like the mix of violence and romance.

The art is really good!!! I'm in love with the guys (of course) and the clothes, I really love! I love to use it as a reference when I draw clothes.
