Mangaka Arina Tanemura!!!!!

I'm sorry!!! I have been sick for the past few days..........many people here are getting sick now that I mention it........they may be the cause of my sickness! They have been passing it to me and other people! I hate missing school and thanks to my sickness, I have a pile of homework! Why did I have to get sick? On the bright side, I stayed at home, slept for the whole afternoon (never even realized that until 2pm) and read Skip beat for the rest of the day. I'm feeling better but......I'm still alittle bit sick!

(I posted this picture in the past but I really like it so.......I posted it again!)



You know what I never get sick of? (Chocolate?) Oh yes, chocolate but thats not what I'm talking about, I'm talking about Arina Tanemura!!! I never get sick of her awesome and great manga!!! Her art is soo amazing!!!!! I want to be like her.....she is my hero! Her art has inspired me to draw manga! Yet I can't draw like her but hey, everyone has their own style of drawing!

Who is Arina Tanemura??

Arina-sensei originally does Shojo manga's. She was born in Aichi, Japan on March 12, 1978 (Oh her birthday already passed!) and a Lord of the Rings fan. She is well known for Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne and Full moon wo Sagashite which both have been turned into animes.

She debuted with The Style of the Second Love, 2番目の恋のかたち Niban-me no Koi no Katachi, in the Ribon Magazine. The Short-Tempered Melancholic, かんしゃく玉のゆううつ Kanshakudama no Yuutsu contained this story and many other short stories Arina-sensei made in the past.

I will admit that this manga frustrates me alittle bit. I really hate how they treat Sakura after.....Oh no! I'm not supposed to tell you!! Ok Ok here, the story is really amazing! The love between Sakura and Aoba......it frustrates me but makes me fall in love with Arina Tanemura all of again. I love how Arina-sensei makes stories with different time periods. It makes it really interesting!

Now there you have it.....I have expressed of how much I love Arina-sensei's manga's! They are sooooo good! The only problem is that......the chapters of Sakura Hime Kaden is not coming out fast enough!!!!! Anyways, you have maybe been wondering where is the manga Full moon wo sagashite? Well, I saved this manga for later......oh wait, I think I may have written about it....I can't remember....If not then I'm sorry.

Arigatou~!!
