Manga Recommendation: Tegami Bachi

Guess what?! I got a job at Mcdonalds!! I need money and I have nothing else to do during the summer so......I got a job! Finally! :D Its my first job by the way!

Tegami Bachi 34 - Page 1

Before I got the job at Mcdonalds, I got caught up reading this manga, Tegami Bachi. At first I didn't want to read it because the summary didn't really make sense to me. My friend told me it was really good but I just couldn't get into it. Well I was bored one day and I needed something new to read. I just went with it and read the manga.

You know what? I fell in love with it instantly. I loved it so much that I had to do a recommendation on it. Also I wanted to watch the anime. The anime is pretty accurate so far (I'm only on episode 3). I will praise them for that.

Title: Tegami Bachi, Letter Bee
Author: Asada Hiroyuki
Genres: Comedy, Action, Adventure, Shonen, Fantasy, Supernatural
Reading Direction: Right to Left
Age Rating: 16+ Older Teen
Status: Ongoing

Summary: The story takes place in the land of Amber Ground, a place of perpetual night only partially illuminated by an artificial sun. 12 year old, Lag Seeing works as a "Bee" (delivery boy) at the "Bee Hive" (a delivery service), with his Dingo, Niche, and her "pet", Steak, traveling with him. He is entrusted with the "hearts" of the everyone in Amber Ground to deliver their packages.

Tegami Bachi 33 - Page 1

I LOVE THE ART! It is sooooooo overly good and amazing!!!! The lines, the flow of hair, the clearness and delicateness of the eyes, shading, clothes, girls  (they are sooo beautiful~!) and guys......ARGH!!!! The art is sooo amazing!!! I love it!!!

Tegami Bachi 33 - Page 2Just to tell the world, I'm in love with Gauche and Lag......Gauche is sooooooo hot~! And Lag is really cute! I love them! I think chapter 29 is probably the most saddest and epic chapter I've read so far. Lag was so cool in it!!!

The story just makes me speechless. I have never read anything like it! Letter that contains 'Hearts'. I don't think anyone would think of that kind of story line! I think its awesome!!!

Of course the story involves a whole bunch of characters. There is always one character that wants to aim for the top. You always see your typical stereotypes in Shonens especially this one.

The characters have time to develop at their right pace. I love they interact with each other. If one character has this type of character, it will cause one character to develop.

When you get into it, the story gets deeper and deeper. It keeps the reader wanting more (of course I would because the chapters aren't coming out fast enough!). Its so suspenseful, fun, unqiue and original. I'm a simple person so almost anything can make me happy and like it. I'm just that weird and simple. ^_^

You know what? This manga is soo touching and inspiring!! I've written and sent letters before. But I just never imagined that there was feelings in letters. (Sigh) This manga me realize how much letters are important to us. I get really happy when I get letters myself! Its really fun to send letters!

Chapter 34 is just touching.....I cried my heart out. I'm not spoiling anything! I'm just saying that chapter 34 just made me emotional! If your the manga!!

How old am I again?

Sigh.....first it was soo warm for the past few days but now its raining like every single day!! I love it!! I leave my window open at night and I love to listen to the sound of rain outside. Its so relaxing......^_^


I'm sorry for not posting once again........I've been so lazy and I can't get on the computer because I have music theory (I hate it) and some drivers test to study for. Also I have tons of chores to do!! I cleaned my room......(I can see the floor!!!) it was pretty much torture. I cleaned my drawing drawer. Yes, you read right. I have a drawing drawer. I put all my drawings in it. Its sooo clean!! Believe me, I filled almost 2 garbage bags full of paper. Don't worry, I'll recycle them! I wanted to burn them.....

Do you know what is the worse thing about cleaning my room??? Cleaning my closet!! Since I am a girl (and a tomboy), I have tons of clothes, thanks to my mother. I don't wear them all and I don't like many of them. Its so full of clothes on the floor, stuff animals......gum, more paper, drawings......who knows what else. I survived cleaning my closet and yeah. I'm proud of myself. I can finally see the floor of my closet!!! Its so clean!!! YAY~!

Anyways, what is wrong with me? Do you know what I have been doing for the past few days?? (Other than cleaning my room and closet, reading manga and watching a whole bunch of anime, lazying around, studying...) I've been watching Barbie movies......

I am a grown teenage girl and I'm watching Barbie movies. Don't look at me like that! I am proud!!! I still love Disney movies and the kiddy movies.

Oh, you know what my favorite Barbie movie is??? (Yes, you have to read what my favorite Barbie movie is) Barbie: Princess and the Pauper. I love that movie!! I still remember watching it when I was a kid......brings back so many memories!

They give me great drawing ideas and they aren't that bad. I know they are predictable and all but what can you expect from a kids movie? The guys are pretty hot too. I don't care what you people think!! I still love them!!!

Now......I'm just going to a Recommendation so.....

Soo Funny! Manga of the Week: Obaka-chan Koigatariki

Reading alot of manga......but thats pretty normal for me! Otaku all the way! There is nothing wrong of being a Otaku! Anyways, enjoy this manga recommendation!

Obaka-chan Koigatariki 15 - Page 2

I LOVE THIS MANGA!!! It is soo funny! I'm going to die if I keep laughing!!! > ^ < I laughed pretty hard when I read this....

I forgot what chapter it was but it was during the beginning. The characters were having a Common sense test in, as I like to call it, the Baka (idiot) class. I was laughing extremely hard when I read the one characters answer. The one who answered "Undress". If you haven't noticed, he is a guy. I usually that kind of line in Shonen-ai manga's but in a Shojo? That's not something you read everyday in a Shojo manga. Well it does depend on the Shojo manga (Gender Bender) but I haven't read it like that! Thats the part that made me laugh!

Obaka-chan Koigatariki 1 - Page 3

Aside from the comedy that I loved so much, the art is pretty awesome! I love the guys!! They are soo hot!!! I love their expressions!! The way the action is drawn!! Its soo beautiful~!!! *0* I love it!!

The storyline is so cute. The characters and side characters develop at the right pace. Love development isn't too slow or too fast. I love the storyline. It made me cry, laugh and get made it at the same time! This is the first time that a Shojo manga like this make my hatred level go wayy high for a guy. It went so high that I almost killed the laptop and my voice almost died because I kept screaming "I hate your guts!!!", to the guy. Man, Shojo manga's can so frustrating!!
