Manga Recommendation: Seiyuu Ka!

Since exams are over and I am on semester break, I'm watching, reading and blogging as much as I can before the new semester starts up again. This manga has been on my "must read" on my list for quite a long time. I was waiting for chapters to come out first then read it. I'm actually quite happy that I waited first because I stopped at a good spot. Wait, I didn't want to stop at that spot! > x < Stupid chapters, come out faster!!

Hime's biggest dream is to one day become the voice of a main character in one of the most popular shōjo series in Japan, "Mahou Senshi Lovely Blazers". This is difficult to achieve, however, as her voice is not suitable as a professional voice actress, resembling that of a Gorilla. It soon becomes apparent that Hime has a hidden talent for voicing male characters, she even gets scouted due to her skill, and seizing the opportunity she enters the voice acting a guy!

This the far best Gender Bender I have ever read in a long time! There hasn't been any good gender benders coming out and this one has been on my must read list for a long time. I finally got around to read this manga. I discovered the Drama CD on youtube and I freaked. I'm so in love with manga! > x < Its sooo funny!!!

♥Seiyuu ka!♥part 1Drama CD♪ 

Oh, I probably should tell you what I think about I go. I absolutely love it to pieces!! The art is amazing!! When Hime dresses up as a guy, I think I'm drooling. Its soo cool!! > u <

The story is soo funny, amazing, cute, hot and....and........wah!!! I love how its about voice acting!!! Voice actors are soo freaking amazing. Especially the Yaoi ones. Yes. I do listen to those. Don't judge me. Its true though! It's amazing how people can act their character and portray them through voice. It's sooo freaking amazing! I don't advise you to listen to a yaoi cd unless you want to die.

I'm currently listening to part 3 of Seiyuu ka, drama cd. Her prince voice is sooo amazing!!! > x < So hot!

It's quite interesting that one of the characters is a total's so utterly cute and funny!! He is my favorite character but I forgot his name. I know I'm sad. I only know how hot he is! ^_^

Soushi - inu-x-boku-ss photo
The lines of the just flows. There are no flaws. The lines are so thin and it makes the pictures look delicate and beautiful. I seriously want to draw like that! I will work hard! >:)

The story is really amazing!! I'm so drawn by the different powers people possess. I'm such a sucker for fantasy stuff. Each of the characters character are so interesting and diverse. I just love Soushi! His relationship with Ririchiyo will always be in my mind. Soushi is like a dog. It's so cute! I'm practically dying from laughing so hard because he wouldn't be apart from Ririchiyo for a second. If she doesn't need him, he would commit suicide. Its actually funny if you saw Ririchiyo's reaction! Its priceless!! :D

You really need to watch this anime!! I'm always eagerly waiting for each episode to come out. I read the manga already (yes, I'm fast) and the episodes are so slow getting out!! > x < Why can't they come out faster!!!

Status: Ongoing

Summary: ( Believing himself to be useless at football, Aizawa Kakeru opts to become the manager of his school's football team, while his brother Suguru is its ace, and is even good enough to represent Japan.

Things are made more complicated with the return of Seven, an old playmate of theirs that Kakeru has a crush on. Join the brothers in their journey to the national and even international championships!

I just love watching sport type animes. They always inspire me! Plus they are always entertaining. As always, different animes bring something different. At times some of them have the same things. Some parts of this anime remind of Eyeshield 21. Other than that, I enjoyed watching this anime.

The art is really good! I love it!

Here are other animes that I watched that you might enjoy!


New Anime 2012: Senhime Zesshou Symphogear

Title: Sehime Zesshou Symphogear
Genres: Action, Seinen, Fantasy
Age Rating: 16+ Older Teen
Status: Ongoing

Summary: ( Since the dawn of time, humanity has been threatened by the disaster called "Noise". When it occurs, people die, and there are no countermeasures. Except one... The top-secret Symphogear System, capable of eliminating Noise, has been deployed in Japan. Unknown to the general public, a pair of girls wielding Symphogears strive relentless to protect society from the ravages of Noise. It would surprise people even more to know that their protectors are none other than chart-topping singing duo "Zwei Wing", Amou Kanade and Kazanari Tsubasa. Tachibana Hibiki and Kohinata Miku are two normal girls just enrolling in Lydian Private Music Academy. There, they meet Kanade and Tsubasa and become involved in the struggle against Noise.

I'd say, this anime is different because well, I don't normally watch things like this. I just don't know what to say or expect from this anime. I don't want to negative first so I'll talk positive first! The beginning of the anime just pulled me in. It was so sad and depressing that I just had to keep watching. The story is actually really interesting. It is dark, happy and musical at the same time. I enjoyed watching this anime.

The beginning was a bit confusing because they kept going from the past to the present. It was confusing but I worked it out in my head. Other than that, the story is just amazing.

It is really cool how they incorporated music and the transformations they had. Its not like the typical magical girl transformation but a mecha like transformation. That is pretty intriguing and interesting.

The art is soo cool, beautiful and intriguing!

Yay! New anime 2012: Aquarion Evol

I just noticed on that there has been quite a few of new anime that just came out. There were alot but some managed to catch my eye. Since I'm really stressed out because of exams, I decided to just watch a couple of them and man, I was happy watching them!

Title: Aquarion Evol
Genres: Shonen, Action, Romance, Mecha, Sci-fi
Age Rating: 16+ Older Teen
Status: Ongoing

Summary: ( Twelve thousand years ago, after the fierce battles with Aquarions that became legendary... People are living in fear from the abduction of Abductors who descend from another dimension. Aquarea, the joined weapon opposes to this. Dating and unification between guys and girls are prohibited even with that crafts as well as the elements candidates from the school. However the fateful encounter between the lonely guy Amata and a girl Mikono changes everything. Now love prohibited, new Unification Legend is ready to activate!

The animation blew my mind away!! Just wow! I'm so impressed!! The art is......(omigosh) soo amazing!!! I pratically fainted when I saw the guys!! *drools* My goodness, they are soo freaking hot!!! The fighting scenes are just epic and really cool! I usually don't watch Mecha anime types but I think I'm in love! I really love the designs, they are really unique!

For some odd reason, I recognize some of the voices of the characters......I wonder where I heard them??

I have to be honest here, I haven't seen the prequel (I can't remember the name....) to Aquarion Evol and I was lost with the storyline but it became a bit clearer during the show. I found it hard to grasp of what was happening because everything was happening a bit to fast. When it got to a certain part, I started to understand it a bit more. I wish they did some explaining at the beginning......but they did that throughout the anime which was good cause I was trying to figure it out!

I can sense there was a bit of fanservice.......seriously, why do the people make girl boobs really big?! I just don't understand Japanese people when it comes to girls and boobs. They don't need to over exaggerate girl boobs cause I think we get it! Also, what's up with the union thing? I get it but they don't need to go over the top.......they are just like having sex........urgh. Gross. "I'm being torn apart!" Great. I didn't need to know that. - _ - ''

The storyline to me, is original but a bit corny. It made me happy to find some kind of romance in a action/mecha type of anime. I feel that this anime is trying to get different kind of audiences with the interesting plotline. More like impress. But that's how I feel. I personally like the anime and I enjoy it alot aside from the cornyness and vaugeness.

Manga/Anime Recommendation: Kyo Kara Maoh!

Have you ever been to another country that had the most weirdest customs (I don't want to offend anyone in anyway), practices and cultures? If you have been to India, you will see cows walking everywhere because they consider cows as sacred animals or in France, where people thank the people in the store before leaving. My french teacher told me about it and I think that is pretty neat. Its completely different in Canada!

The anime I just watched intrigued me by showing the most outrageous way of proposing to a person. The way a person proposes to another person in the Demon Kingdom is basically slapping his/her cheek. Either side is fine, gender doesn't matter. I almost died laughing because it was just so funny, great and original! :D

Slap......oops....... 0////0 I did what?! I love Yuri! :D

Title: Kyo Kara Maoh!
Author: (Story) Tomo Takabayashi and (Art) Temari Matsumoto
Genres: Shonen Ai, Comedy, Fantasy, Romance, Action, Shojo, Adventure
Reading Direction: Right to Left
Age Rating: 13+ Teen
Status: Manga Ongoing and Anime Completed

Summary: (wikipedia) Kyo Kara Maoh!, takes place in an alternate world that Yuri Shibuya travels to by coming in contact with water. There are many nations in the alternate world, however, the plot centers around the The Great Demon Kingdom. The people of the kingdom are Demons but appear indistinguishable from human. Their only distinguishing traits are their long lives and the ability to use magic. The people of the Demon Tribe are able to make a pact with an element which they can then use magic of that element. Covenant Castle is in the capital of the Demon Kingdom. It is the residence of the Demon King. The culture of The Great Demon Kingdom is very different from the Japanese culture Yuri is accustomed to, and the differences make for some amusing mishaps with long ranging consequences, such as an accidental proposal of marriage.

The art is so hot! :D I want to draw Wolfram!!! He is so hot!!! I love his eyes and hair!! *Faints* Its so great~!!!

I'm sad that Tokopop just decided to close their publishing doors! That means that Kyo Kara Maoh is not published anymore!!! WAH!!! I wanted to buy the manga too!!! > x < GRR!!! The story is soo funny, cute, hot and awesome!!! I don't know how to explain it.....I love it too much! The characters are loveable and clash together nicely like Wolfram and Yuri. I love their love-hate relationship, since they are engaged..........(yaoi fan right here- bad images popping into brain 0 ^ 0)

I can totally tell which one would be the uke........... :D



My gosh, I have been waiting for so long!!! You know the new Taiwanese drama, Extravagant Challenge aka. Skip Beat (my top favorite manga!), was supposed to be aired along time ago but due to circumstances, they put the drama on hold or something. After a whole long time of checking, a couple of episodes finally came out! I was soo freaking excited that I didn't care if some episodes were in raw!

Quick summary of Skip beat: Kyoko Mogami is a sixteen year old girl who left her hometown with her first love, Fuwa Sho so he can pursue his dream to be a singer. Life was going good until he decides to ditch her now that he is famous. She was so mad that she decided to join show business to get revenge on him. She goes to the agency that is a rival to his and to her surprise, she runs into Tsugara Ren, the man who Sho really hates because of his popularity. How will she be able to pull this off?

The drama follows the manga really well and I just love it! The actors are cute and hot. Espeically Ren and Sho. *Dies*

It's been awhile since I checked if the first couple episodes were subbed but I really hope they are because I want to watch them again!

Happy New Year!!!! :D

School just started up again and I was really busy with work during christmas break. I know that its a bit late and the world is ending anyways, (I don't believe that **** :P pardon my french) so I just wanted to wish all my awesome viewers a happy new year~! I love the new year because you get to think of a new year resolution. I love new year resolutions!!! Guess what mine is???


Actually, I have a list. My new year resolutions are......what some of my friends say, "typical" and funny.

Number one, the top of my list and maybe everyone's- earn alot of money!!! > v <

There are two things that are tied for number two- find a nice, hot guy to hook up with (I'm pretty sure every girl would love to have one of those) and read/watch as many manga/anime for the next year and get alot of manga books! Since my best friend gave me quite a bit of manga for christmas (I love her!!!), I need a bigger book shelf which is a good sign.

Number three, hmmm.......what was number three again? I was distracted by that hot picture. Anyways, I have to get high marks and finish highschool. I think I'm doing well considering the semester is ending soon. Great. Exams are coming up. Sigh. Again.

Number four! Go to Philippines! My goal is to go there to experience the culture that I never lived. I want to try the school there and maybe ask my cousins to hook me up with a guy. Haha! I also want to wear a uniform because it seems so cool!

Number five. My goal for this year is to get better at drawing backgrounds and guys. If my goal for getting a guy will not work, I can always draw my own! I have no life....... :D

Just so you know, I do have a list from last year 2010-2011. If your curious you could read my post here. I have already achieved some of my goals from last year. I did get a bit fatter which is a good thing if you read my post and I got manga books throughout the year. So far drawing is slowly getting better.....I think and learning Filipino is getting somewhere.

I'm really happy because for the past year my blog has grown so much and I enjoy blogging for you guys. I think I'm going to cry......sniff sniff. I think I have gotten better at writing thanks to this (not much). Hey, as long as there is manga and anime, my blog will always be open!

Oh! My fellow viewers!! If you have any manga/anime to recommend me, please recommend it!! Comment on my blog or something!! Suggest away!!!! :D Just no scary ones, anything with yaoi (I read quite a bit to be honest -////-), romance, comedy or even gender bender, shonen or shojo, I would definitely read/watch!

Happy New year! :D
