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 <

Title: Rasetsu
Author: Chika Shiomi
Genres: Comedy, Romance, Fantasy, Shojo, Action
Reading Direction: Right to Left
Age Rating: 13+ Teen

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

Title: Seikon No Blacksmith, 聖剣の刀鍛冶(ブラックスミス) Seiken no Burakkusumisu
Author: Miura Isao and (Art) Yamada Koutaro
Genres: Comedy, Action, Fantasy, Seinen, Shonen, Romance (not much..)
Reading Direction: Right to left
Age Rating: 16+ Older Teen
Status: (Anime) Completed and (Manga) Ongoing

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.

I'm pretty sure that I haven't done a manga recommendation on this yet. So I will do one right now!

Summary: 15 year old Sachie Wakamura lived a normal life until her mother died. Now her grandfather suddenly shows up and takes her in. But it turns out that he is the head of a yakuza clan. 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!!!

Summary: (Wiki) Jeon Jin Ho is a straight guy who pretends to be gay in order to become Park Kae In's roommate. His hobbies include organization and ironing, and he’s known for his stoic poker face. He’s a stickler for cleanliness, but he also has a talent for figuring out a women’s feelings. Kae In is very trusting even though she has a habit of being betrayed. 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
