Manga's for the Leap Year Feb 29!

Ah~! I just realized it is a leap year and today, apparently, shouldn't exist! I probably shouldn't even be on the computer right now......oh well. There were many things I shouldn't be doing today. For example, during gym we were supposed to play broom ball (a horrid sport) and I of course didn't want to. I don't have anything against that sport but the stupid helmets we had to put on! It nearly killed me! > x <

Since I have such a small head, I got the excuse to sit out of broom ball and go to the library in the recreation center. I was enjoying myself through reading Oresama Teacher. I just love libraries! They have manga books I can read!!

Cerberus 7 - Page 1

This manga is ok. I like the storyline but I'm not really used to the fact there is blood in every fighting scene and I mean there is like tons! I have never read such a gory fighting scene since High school of the Dead! 

I kinda like the art! It grows on my whenever I read the manga.

Summary: ( From StarryHeaven:

Tanakamori Asami, 16 years old. Because of her father’s debts, she’s forced to transfer from her elite school to her current one… Her new school is entirely full of strange people, in fact it’s kinda like a zoo… But there, she meets the beautiful Akira. Thanks to the charismatic Akira, Asami slowly, slowly she gets used to her new school. However several trials appear to Asami such as her family's finances, her classmates, and even in love. Her everyday life is bursting open in this romantic comedy!

Shouri no Akuma 1 - Page 5

I seriously think this manga is crazy but fun! The gender bender in this manga is pretty interesting. The guy aka. Akira, actually likes dressing up like a girl and I have no problem but the fact that Akira looks smokin' hot when he dresses up like a man. I'm going to cry......

Anyways, the storyline is a typical shojo storyline but unique in its own way. Of course tons of manga's have to have their own pazaze.....(I spelled that really wrong I know) and at times Shouri no Akuma does have its originality, like the comedy it has which I love so much! It's so cute!!

 Shouri no Akuma 9 - Page 3

I really love the art! I'm sooo in love!! Some parts of the art reminds me of the manga, Arisa.

AKB49 - Renai Kinshi Jourei 1 - Page 2

Title: AKB49- Renai Kinshi Jourei
Author: Motoazabu Factory and (Art) Miyajima Reiji
Genres: Romance, Comedy, Gender Bender, School life, Drama, Shonen
Reading Direction: Right to Left
Age Rating: 16+ Older Teen
Status: Ongoing

Summary: ( This manga based on the ever popular AKB48 group.

This series is about a guy called Urakawa Minoru crossdressing as a girl to participate in a female idol group audition (akb48). The main objective is to help the girl he likes, Yoshinaga Hiroko, pass the audition. Yoshinaga Hiroko's dream is to become like her favourite idol who is in the akb48 group. This audition happens to be her final try, so Minoru crossdresses as Minori and took part in the audition to make sure she realizes her dream. Hiroko got qualified eventually, however, the shocking news was Minoru was qualified as well. Thus, the road to becoming a female idol begins...

At first I avoided reading this manga because I can't stand guys cross dressing (unless its a Yaoi!) in a normal gender bender manga. I read mangas where girls are the ones cross dressing and I don't mind that. I just don't know bothers me. Don't judge me!

I forced myself to read it because I thought it would interesting and my friends told me to read it so I can say I read it. I couldn't stop reading and I totally hooked. The manga made me root for Minoru and the girl he likes. Who knew a guy would go that far for a girl? I wish I could meet a guy that like that....

Anyways! I have never read anything like this storyline! I find it hilarious and cute! The art is amazing! It sorta reminds me of Bakuman.....but thats just me.


Korean Drama Recommendation: Lie to Me

I stayed up until midnight last night (again) and I found this funny and interesting korean drama while listening to my siblings ipod!

Title: Lie to Me
Type: Korean Drama
Genres: Comedy, Romance, Slice of Life
Age Rating: 13+ Teen
Status: Completed

Summary: ( Gong Ah Jung, a level 5 Ministry of Culture official, gets entangled in a web of lies when she mistakenly lies that she’s married to Hyun Ki Joon, a hotel manager from an affluent family. Their relationship is further complicated when Ki Joon’s ex-fiancée and a close friend of his brother’s, Oh Yoon Joo, reappears in his life.

If you watched the drama's Coffee Prince (amazing) or Princess Hours (great), you would recognize the person who plays Ah Jung (Yoon Eun Hye). She is the main actress in both of those, Coffee Prince and Princess Hours. You'll even recognize the actor, Kang Ji Hwan (a total hottie!) who has also played the main male character in Coffee Prince. I love all the actors in Lie to Me! They are so funny and amazing! Especially some of the guys.....they are so hot!! > u <

Their characters just seem so original! I haven't seem characters like Ah Jung in a while. It feels refreshing!

Lately there has been alot of korean drama's that are coming out about marrying and such. I seriously don't see the rush in getting married. The only reason Ah Jung is saying that she is married because she doesn't want to feel ashamed she isn't because of her former best friend who is a total female dog (I just can't swear). I'm still on episode 2 and I really hate her former best friend (forgot her name).

The storyline is pretty interesting and stringed with a line of lies. Have you ever played the telephone game where you sit with a bunch of friends and tell the person next you a message and they pass it on? Well the storyline is like that but its just a bunch of rumors. I don't even know how people get that conclusion! It's kinda funny.

The romance is so cute! I see there is a little bit of a development in episode 2 and I'm getting excited how things will turn out!

It's that time of month again.......Valentines day

I feel so irritated! This is not what it looks or sound like. I'm not PMSing! I just wanted to see what would happen if I made a title like that. Blogging is all about the topic and title you know! I want to draw you in! :P

First things first. Why am I irritated? Because I feel stupid and I don't want to do my homework. I don't like studying for french or math and practicing piano for that festival. I'm so stressed out! /// > x < ///

So I'll take my anger out on Valentines day. I don't know why but it seems reasonable since well, I'm not actually taking out my anger on someone. I don't really mind Valentines day. I know it has passed already but this month really does feel like Valentines day is everyday. I think Valentines Day is an excuse for a day where  I question why we have this holiday. I only like this holiday because I get chocolates from my friends and I get to give them some in return. I hate this holiday because it makes people without girlfriends/boyfriends, husbands/wives, depressed they have nobody. The solution to Valentines Day is to call it "Forever Alone day". I know it sounds depressing but its partly true. It's not like I'll be forever by myself because I'm going to find myself a hot man! (I'm actually pretty popular so I don't need to worry!)

Here's a (or a couple...) song that will even get you into the mood! Well the romantic mood. I have so many favorite songs on my youtube account. I really love these songs so much!! I know, most of the songs have male singers. Their voices are so hot!! > x <

Ren (the guy in the picture) is from the manga Bara to Juudan. Might as well do a manga recommendation! But first, I need to apologize for not posting in a long time. February has been a bit busy. As you know Whitney Housten has died (she was an amazing singer!) and someone in my school died. It's been a bit hard and I knew the student. I'm sorry for the depressing talk but I just wanted you guys to know. So I must cheer up! I hope every one has had a great Valentines day! I didn't had time to post on Valentines day and this will make up for it!

They attack human cities and kidnap their inhabitants in order to drain their "prana" (vital energy). To fight against them, youngsters with special powers from arround the world were gathered and trained to pilot the "vector machines", three ancient ships that together form mankind's ultimate weapon, "Aquarion". The story revolves mainly arround Apollo, a teenager rumored as the reencarnation of Apolonius, a fallen angel who fought against his own kind to protect mankind. Few believe it could be true, but the fact is that dispite his untamed and reckless nature, he proved to be an invaluable asset in the battle against the Shadow Angels.

For those who love Action, Adventure, Shonen and Romance, this anime is for you! I'm not a big fan of Mecha but this anime made me think that Mecha robots are so cool and epic! I got into it when I discovered Aquarion Evol. I was curious about the original so I watched Aquaron.

After watching it, I definetly think that Aquarion is better! The new one is........ok. I love Aquarion!! It's the most amazing thing ever! They storyline is....amazing! The art is.....amazing!!! My one complaint, stupid fanservice!!!! Grr..........

So many hot guys in Aquarion is in the air......(refering to the picture below)...*dies from a nosebleed* Don't judge me!

Haha....... :D I freak out!! Anyways, this next manga I'm about to recommend is a Yaoi. If you are a yaoi lover, go ahead and read what I think about this manga because I love it so much! It's the most adorable thing ever! For those who aren't into that kind of things, just skip this part and scroll down and see what else I posted on this post.

It can supposedly move and talk and some former owners even claim it drank their blood.

Unfazed, Shin buys the doll anyway to find out that the rumors might not be as ridiculous as they sound...

This manga is sooo cute!!! Kya!!!!! //// > x < /// Don't read the last chapter with food in your mouth. Man, I practically freaked when I was reading it. In fact, never read/watch any yaoi while eating. That is my word of wisdom to you today. You'll have to spit it out or choke on your food when they......nevermind. My brother walked in and I practically choked.

Brother: "What are you doing Chibiko?"
Chibiko: "N-n-nothing!!!" Almost choking on food because of my brother suddenly showing up and the scene I was reading
Brother: Walks closer to see.
Chibiko: "Unless you want to convert, stay away from my Yaoi!"
Brother: "Ok...."
Chibiko: "You know I wouldn't care if you were gay"
Brother: "...." Walks out the door.
Chibiko: "Serves you right for barging into my room", mumbling turning back to my screen.

What? My brother is such a pain! He comes in at the wrong times especially when I decide to read Yaoi! I can't stop blushing! The scenes are so hot!!

Ok back to the manga. The storyline is original and amazing. I find myself crying because of Shimeji! His character is funny, cute and quite sad. He has had alot of masters but you can totally tell that he loves Shin. This manga is....sniff.....sniff.....just amazing!!! > x <

Drama Recommendation: Hungry!

Of course I would watch a drama called Hungry because you know, I'm overly curious what this drama was about! And, I was hungry at the time. How weird! :P

Time for my quick drama recommendation~!

Title: Hungry, ハングリー!
Type: Japanese Drama
Genres: Romance, Comedy, Drama, Slice of life
Age Rating: 13+ Teen
Status: Ongoing

Summary: ( Mukai is taking on the role of Eisuke, a former bassist of a rock band who gave up his music dreams to carry on the tradition of his family's French restaurant. The show will involve a love triangle as Kuninaka and Takimoto play rivals for Eisuke's heart. Kuninaka has been cast as Eisuke's older girlfriend Maria, who works at a bank. She is shocked to learn that Mukai has abandoned his music to devote himself to the restaurant, leading her to uncertainty about their relationship.

Takimoto's character is a 20-year-old college student named Chie who comes from a farming family. Although she initially had a bad impression of Eisuke, she begins to develop feelings for him after tasting his cooking. SMAP's Inagaki will play Tokio, the owner of a competing French restaurant. In the past, he was fond of the restaurant that Eisuke's mother ran, but after she passed away, he deceived Eisuke's father and bought out the restaurant's chefs and staff. Knowing of Eisuke's ability as a chef, Tokio views him as a rival. Eisuke's friends, who were part of his band ROCKHEAD, are being played by Tsukamoto (guitarist) and Miura (vocalist). Both of them help Eisuke with his restaurant.

I love this drama!!! It involves food!!! The food looks sooooo tasty!!! *Dies* I want to eat some right now!!!! If only I was Chie!!! I envy her! She gets to stuff her face with all that delicous food!! > x <

Typical story line but I still enjoy and love it. I'm so inspired by it! I'm sad that the mom died.....she seems really nice. Either way, it makes you want to root for the main character till the very end! I don't get why there aren't people in their resturant because the food Eisuke makes looks utterly amazing!!

The actors are hot! Eisuke......oh my gosh! I want to marry him! I want a man who is hot and makes me delicous food!!!!

Smile Pretty Cure!

I'M SO EXCITED! There is a new season of Pretty Cure!! I know that all the haters are like, "really another one?" but I'm over here freaking out because I'm soo happy and excited! I'm such a sucker for magical girl anime so don't judge me. The other day when I went to the bookstore, I practically yelled in the store when I saw Sailor Moon vol 1 (of course I bought it). It was quite funny to see me, an otaku, freak out over a book. The customers had this funny look that said, "what the-?!"

I know, I'm weird and I'm proud of it!

Thanks to a person (anonymous) who commented on my blog, I know that the anime will come!! Who says I have to wait until subs come out? Watching a whole ton of anime helps when it comes to watching raw anime! I could understand a bit.....but not alot.

I found episode one part one raw and I couldn't find the second part! Then I suddenly found the SUBS on this site!!! I was soo freaking happy!! I'm watching it right now to be honest......I'm enjoying it!!!


Title: Smile Pretty Cure!
Genres: Magical Girl, Action, Drama
Age Rating: All Ages
Status: Ongoing

Summary: (wiki) Somewhere in the universe there exists a place called Märchenland, where characters from fairy tales mingled together. Near the corner of Märchenland exists a world called Bad End Kingdom, where the antagonists of all fairy tales gathered. However, the Evil Emperor Pierrot of the Bad End Kingdom decided to invade the country and sealed away its Queen, while his minions traveled to Earth to collect Bad Energy and give the whole world the "Worst Ending".

In order for the Queen to be revived and prevent the "Worst Ending" from happening, Candy, a fairy from Märchenland must gather the 5 legendary warriors called Pretty Cures to collect the Cure Décor, tokens of happiness that has been stolen and hidden away during the kingdom's attack. To gather them, Candy follows the 5 Beams of Light to Earth and it's there that she meets Miyuki Hoshizora, a transfer student from Nanairogaoka Middle School, who is already running late on her first day of class...

The pictures look so pretty!! :D The character design for each of the characters are really interesting! I have to be honest with you, I feel like I'm enjoying Pretty cure all over again. I think I love Smile Pretty Cure more than any other Pretty Cure season ever! The art is soo pretty and colorful!

The main character, Hoshizora Miyuki, is a bit different than all of the other leader's of Pretty Cure. If you watched all of the seasons (I did!) and compared them from one another, each of them are different in a way. Yuki is different when she first met Candy. Usually the main character would freak out when they meet a Fairy like Candy. But Miyuki was like, "Cute~!" and I was like, "that was different.."

You know, another reason I love watching the Pretty cure seasons because the anime's are just soo colorful! It gives out a happy vibe!

I find that Smile Pretty cure has a bit more comedy. I love the storyline! The storyline has to do with fairytales and I'm in love with fairytales!! I can't wait until the next episode comes out!!!
