Arina Tanemura New Series: Fudanjuku Monogatari

So here I was, looking for stuff to read/watch and then I came across this picture (explains the new picture on my blog...) that looked like it was drawn by Arina Tanemura. I didn't recongize any of the characters and I soon found out that it was a new series she just created a couple months back. I didn't know! My goodness, I was so happy to find it! Right away, I looked it up and started reading it! You can read it on It's only the first chapter......I want somebody to translate it!!! > x < Please!!

Nakano Fudanshi Gakuen. A school renowned for its sports program, yet only has an average school rating of 50! Within the school, there is a club on the verge of losing its official status. Called "Fudanjuku", the club's theme is, to put it simply, "anything-goes". This story is a slapstick school comedy revolving around the unique 7 members and their various troubles.

Fuudanjuku Monogatari 1 Page 4

As always, Arina Tanemura will never cease to amaze me! She always goes for new things and this definitely new! It's not magical or fantasy like her other creations like Full Moon wo sagashite or Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne. Also, Fudanjuku Monogatari doesn't have a female lead! This kinda scared me but after I read it, I didn't care anymore. It was just amazing and funny! Everybody in the club (except for one) loves anime! I'm soo in love! //> x <//

The art is just downright amazing! The guys will always look hot! *Drools* This manga is based off the idol group, Fudanjuku which is the male ego of the female group Nakano Fujo Sisters. Man, those guys are sooo hot!!! > x < I wanna die! No one can draw hot guys that good!! I do know a few mangaka's who can and Arina Tanemura is one of them! Why does Blank-kun remind me of Maguri from The Gentlemens Allaince?

The storyline just makes me want to cry! It's so cute and heartwarming and sooo funny! I love Arina Tanemura!! Her manga's are so inspiring and it fills my little heart up!


Old Magical Girls and Others

Sigh, my spring break is almost coming to an end! I still have tons of homework and I have to go to Toronto on Wednesday.......great, I'm going to miss school! I hate missing school! That means I won't be able to exempt exams and I have more homework which means more stress for me! ARGH!

Since it is Spring break, I have been staying up late for the past couple days and it's really bad for me. But I have been watching alot of older animes lately because I felt like it. Man, they brought tons of memories back and I could see where most of the magical girl animes today got their ideas twisted with their own uniqueness.

Summary: (Wiki) The heroine, Ririka Moriya, is a bubbly (but slightly clumsy) 4th grader who has a crush on Nozomu Kanō, a transfer student from England. On her 10th birthday, Kanō gives her a magical cap, which allows Ririka to transform into the heavenly guardian, Nurse Angel. Kanō-senpai tells her that he is really named Kanon, and he comes from the planet Queen Earth, which has been overrun by the evil organization Dark Joker. Dark Joker has poisoned that world, and so he was sent to find the legendary Nurse Angel, who would save both Earth and Queen Earth from destruction by finding Flower of Life (命の花 Inochi no Hana). With help from Kanō-senpai and her friend and neighbor Seiya Uzaki, she soon learns to fight as Nurse Angel to protect her friends

This anime just brings back memories. I love the storyline! It's so interesting yet so typical. Lot's of old magical girls always had their typical heroine.

Summary: (Wiki) Nagisa Shiratori is the heir to a judo training hall that has fallen on such hard times that their only pupils are animals from a nearby wildlife park. In a desperate bit to save her heritage, she reveals that she is going to go out into the world as an idol singer and find "strong men" to join her school. The first part of her plan succeeds beyond her wildest dreams: she is almost instantly elevated to the status of Japan's top idol despite an utter lack of anything even remotely resembling musical talent. Yet this dooms the second part of her plan, because her fame and schedule prevent her from finding the disciples she seeks.

So Nagisa horrifies her manager by chopping off her trademark pigtails and enrolling at one of the worst schools in Tokyo as a boy, under her given name of Nagisa Ootori (Shiratori is a stage name). There she runs into the toughest gang at the school, and after she soundly beats them they (believing her to be a man) recruit her to help them confront a gang from a rival school. Unfortunately, when she sees the leader of the rival gang, a handsome boy named Nosaka-kun, she instantly falls madly in love with him. Before the fight can begin, Nagisa is whisked away to a record signing, where she encounters Nosaka again, who is so utterly smitten with Nagisa Shiratori that he proposes marriage on the spot.

The next day the disguised Nagisa fights an inconclusive duel with Nosaka that ends in a stalemate, and with Nosaka declaring her a worthy foe he looks forward to fighting again. He later reveals to the female Nagisa that he too in on a quest to recruit disciples for a failing martial arts school, and is meeting with a similar lack of success. The next day, in their final confrontation, Nosaka discovers Nagisa's secret due to an ill-placed grab maneuver. Delaring he would rather love Nagisa than fight her, he agrees to keep her secret and they run off, with the school toughs and both their disapproving fathers in hot pursuit.

After that, Nagisa continues her double life, showing up at school some of the time when her manager cannot force her to attend to her idol responsibilities. Meanwhile, the world she lives in gets weirder and weirder, as more and more bizarre things happen in her proximity.

Haha! This is the first old anime that I've found that has gender bender in it! It makes me soo happy! The art is pretty typical for an old anime so I won't judge it. I'll just say it's really pretty and the guys aren't that bad looking. The storyline is pretty funny and I couldn't help but chuckle a bit when Nosoka proposes to Nagisa. I really thought, "Typical" and went on. Still, I enjoyed this anime very much!

I'm in love with this anime! I have been waiting for this anime to be subbed because it's so old! I don't care if this anime is old, it's amazing! It's a true classic! Kiyoko Arai is just amazing! She is known for Beauty Pop, Ask Dr. Rin! and Angel Lip. I never even knew that she made such manga's/anime's! She is like a legend when it comes to magical girls! ^_^

Summary: (Wiki) Yū Morisawa is an ordinary 10-year-old girl, until she sees a spaceship floating in the sky. Carried into the ship, she helps Pino Pino find the Feather Star. In thanks for her assistance he grants her a magical wand, which allows her to transform into a 16-year old girl, for one year. She is also given two cats from Feather Star, Posi and Nega, who are to watch over her while she has magical powers. While wandering around the city as a teenager, she accidentally ends up on TV and asked to sing, which the magic enables her to do remarkably well. Using the alias of Creamy Mami, she becomes an overnight success, and is soon sought to begin a professional career as an idol under Parthenon Productions. Along the way, she also meets past residents of Feather Star and supernatural beings. In addition, she must fight against Snake Joe, a shady character of the rival LP Productions, who is always trying to steal her away and Megumi-chan, another one of Parthenon Productions' top stars.

Magical Angel Creamy Mami, influenced a whole bunch of popluar animes today. Arina Tanemura's popular, Full Moon wo Sagashite was influenced by using the age transformation in order to become an idol and other animes. I believe this anime is just amazing except for the fact the beginning of the anime freaked me out with their weird alien ship but other than that, I loved the anime very much! It made me want to watch all of the Magical Girl animes!

Her pet parrot Waffle goes with her as her mascot and to try to keep her out of trouble.

As you can totally tell, I am true to my word and I am an otaku! I love this anime and I never get bored of it! It's so heartwarming and fun to watch.

With the usual hardships that come with a school girl life and boyfriends, can the sisters survive the added pressure of a possessive princess and an ancient legend destined to cause untold trouble for the pair?

Man, I used to watch this when I was a kid! It's so cute and I love the relationship between the twins so much. The storyline is so awesome! I can't explain it! It feels nostalgic when I watched the anime.

I'll just put in an odd one in this post because I can!

You know, I watched this anime for one reason, Zero. I saw him in several amv's on youtube and wanted to see him in action. He is soo freaking hot! > x <

Well, the anime was a bit rushed and I had no idea was going on. Slowly I got used to it and I slowly grasped the storyline. The art is amazing and just takes my breath away everytime.

The Hunger Games!

I'm so happy its Spring Break! It's been for a while now but you know, I never have the time to blog. Anyways, so far, my spring break is going very well. My family went on a road trip and my best friend came along. We bought really cool green and red jeans for her at the mall. I don't know what's wrong with me but suddenly, makeup fascinates me. There was really cool eyeshadow and I just had to buy it.

Just so you know, I'm a girl and makeup would disgust me and it will never usually go on my face very often. I do wear makeup for choir concerts. But why did I buy some? It never has occured to me that makeup makes me sorta happy and I'm pretty sure I'm going through a phase. Why am I talking about this?

Just ignore that paragraph. I like to go on about my life at times if you care. It's nice to talk about my life once in a while.

Josh Hutcherson :D

So yesterday, my family and I went to the movies and watched The Hunger Games! I have read every single book of The Hunger Games and I was soo excited to finally go and see it! The actor for Peeta (Josh Hutcherson: Zathura, Firehouse Dog) and Cato are really hot! Like oh my goodnes! They were pretty accurate with the appearances and personalities! It's amazing!

Don't know what I'm talking about? Time for a summary!

Title: The Hunger Games
Author: Suzanne Collins
Genres: Romance, Action, Tragedy, Adventure, Fantasy
Age Rating: 13+ Teen
Status: Completed (3 books in total)

Summary: Set in the future, the world is split into 12 districts. Each district is responsible for some kind of resource, for example, District 12 does mining of coal. All of the districts are controlled by the Capitol. To show how powerful the Capitol is, they created the hunger games. The hunger games works by getting one girl and one boy from each district that are called tributes which sums up to 24 kids in an arena and fight to the death until one is left. The arena is set up to be a wilderness where tributes have to survive on their own and kill each other. The last one will be victor and will be sent to the Victor houses in the Capitol where they will live in utter luxury. If you win, you will never be picked again.

In order to picked for the Hunger Games, each child starting from the age of 12 will have one of their names put into the box for the reaping which when they draw at random for two tributes. Each year they age, they will put the childs name more than once. It will stop once you turn 18. If you weren't picked, then you are lucky. It's difficult when your poor because the child will have to have their name put in more than once so they can get more food for their family. The more times you get your name in, you will be likely chosen.

Katniss Everdeen is a 16 year old girl who lost her father at the age of 11 during a mining accident. He left her, her mother and her 12 year old sister, Primrose Everdeen. Katniss would go beyond the District border and go hunt with her bow and arrow. Often, her best friend Gale would go with her. Gale wants to escape to the woods with his family and with her family. Katniss doesn't want to have kids because of the Hunger Games. She would be too scared for them.

During the reaping, Prim's name was called even though her name was only put in once. However, Katniss immediately volunteers instead. So she is the girl tribute along with Peeta Malark who is the same age as her. They go to the Capitol and get cleaned up. They meet their trainer, Haymitch who was a former Hunger Games winner and learn how to get sponsers, people who send things when a tribute needs something the most such as water when the tribute is dying of thirst. Tributes get evalutaed to get attention of the crowd and sponsers. Soon after evaluation the games soon start. But Haymitch tells Peeta and Katniss to pretend to like each other so they can have sponsers and attention. It seems that Peeta truley likes Katniss but Katniss isn't sure about her true feelings and just goes with it.

The first book was just amazing! I read the book over and over again! I could not put the book down and I read the whole series in one night! The storyline is just so high packed, gripping and suspenseful! Suzanne Collins mixes in Action and Romance together so nicely! I really love the "Star crossed lovers" thing. It makes me smile and blush at the same time!

The movie was surprisingly acurate. Even though there was a few gaps here and there, it was overall amazing! It made people who never read the books informed. I just don't know how to explain it but even though they did skip parts, they made it feel whole. I'm sorry if you don't know what I'm talking about but you will if you watched the movie.

I really hope that they make a second movie based off of the second book in the series, Catching Fire. I bet it will be amazing! I want some more of Peeta and Katniss!! > x <

Happy Birthday to my Father! :D


Episode 2 Review: Legend of Korra

Ok. Ok. Ok. Ok. I'm freaking out!! I just watched the second episode of Legend of Korra yesterday and.....I'm loving it soo much! I just had to tell the world that I'm in love with the new cartoon!!! I can't bottle it up! > x < This episode just topped the first!

This next part of this post may contain spoilers! Please watch the second episode of Legend of Korra! :D

Recap: Episode two consists of Korra starting her air bending training with Tenzin but it's not going very well. She ends up going to a Pro-bending match where she meets to two more main characters named Mako and Bolin who are part of the Fire Ferret team. Korra becomes drawn to the type of fighting techniques of Pro-bending and joins the team when the water bender of the Fire Ferret team fails to show up. Korra soon discovers that the fighting is different in the area from what she was trained for. Though she doesn't know this, she starts using air bending techniques to dodge her opponents attacks which results to a victory. Tenzin saw her fight and allows her to stay on the team.

I love the twin brothers so much!! //> x <// Mako is sooooo freaking hot! Bolin is really cute~! They are like exact opposites and it makes it so interesting! I can kinda tell that there is going to be something going on between Mako and Korra. *Smiles creepily* They would make a great couple!

I don't want to leave out Bolin! Bolin is pretty cool but I'm not sure if he would be great with Korra. I mean, they would be great friends but not that close. :D

The fighting scenes are soo refined and more detailed! It's so amazing! > x < I love it!!!!

I can't wait for the next episode!

The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra!

I'm soooooo excited and happy!!! My friend told me about a new season of Avatar the Last Airbender. The first episode just came out!! > x < I can't wait for the new episode to come out!!! I have fallen for Avatar once again! The new season is just sooo cool and amazing!!! I thank the creators!!!

Legend of Korra - avatar-the-legend-of-korra photo

You should see the character designs!!! They are soo amazing and cool! >Below< This is a character design for the Legend of Korra. This guy is pretty hot and sexy! I'm just loving this portion of the show already! I can't wait until they introduce him in the show! His name is Mako, a fire bender and he will be one of main characters along with his twin, Bolin who is an earth bender.

I like Mako better! Why does fire benders look more hotter and sexier?! They are soo hot!!! ///> o <///

Just for me.....*drools*

Mako's training session - avatar-the-legend-of-korra photo

Ok, the new season make look more mature but they still have Katara who is still alive but old. The Legend of Korra is still aiming for the same viewers and maybe some new ones since the new season is alot more modernized since Ang died. I know, Ang is dead. But hey, in order for a new Avatar to be born is the old to die and reincarnated to a new one. That's the cycle! Oh! Korra is a water bender in this so you will see Katara! Oh! Oh! Even Toph's child! Ok, I should shut up!! > x <

Title: Legend Of Korra
Genres: Comedy, Action, Adventure, Romance (?)
Age Rating: All Ages
Status: Ongoing

Summary: The series will focus on Korra, a teenage girl from the Southern Water Tribe and the current incarnation of the Avatar, who, according to the president of Nickelodeon, will be "hotheaded, independent, and ready to take on the world". She has already mastered Water, Earth, and Fire, but has yet to master Air.  The character was partly inspired by Avatar Kyoshi of the original series, who the creators say was well-liked among fans.

To avoid repetition of Aang's adventures, the show will be set in a single place, called Republic City, a steampunk metropolis inhabited by benders and non-benders of all nations and founded by Aang and Zuko after the 100-year world war of the original series. The city's police are Metalbenders (a subset of Earthbenders), taught their art by Toph Bei Fong of the original series, and led by her daughter. The city's most popular sport is pro-bending, which sets teams of benders against each other. The conflict of the first season will center upon a group of anti-benders, called the Equalists, who use chi-blocking to subdue their enemies.

A concept drawing of the city, released with the announcement of the series, shows the city's design inspired by Shanghai in the 1920s and 1930s, Hong Kong, Manhattan, and Vancouver. In the show, Korra will learn Airbending from Tenzin, youngest child of Aang and Katara, and will contend with an anti-bender revolution in Republic City. Korra's final design was revealed at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Convention, along with her companion Naga. It was also mentioned that Aang found a small colony of flying bison after the war, and that the second season will include ring-tailed winged lemurs.

Korra Poster - avatar-the-legend-of-korra photo

I just love this show with a passion!! I love how the creators made it different and modern but they still kept the feel of the original Avatar. The animation is more detailed and the fighting scenes look more refined than the original. I'm soo amazed! They even have cars now!! I'm just excited!! > x <

I'm loving the storyline already! I just saw the first episode and the antagonists seem interesting and cool! They really have neat masks! The plot is pretty determined and I can see why non-benders have their views on benders. It reminds me of the X-men because of the mutants problem of having no rights, basically low in class and not even acknowledged.

I will forever miss Appa but the polar bear dog, Naga is kinda growing on me.

Spring New Anime 2012: Ozuma

I just love cruising the new anime list on animenewsnetwork! It makes me so excited and foward to new anime! It makes me look foward to life! Well, that one thing. There are many things that make me look foward to life and my list will go on forever!

Title: Ozuma
Genres: Adventure, Action, Sci-fi, Fantasy, Shonen
Age Rating: 13+ Teen
Status: Ongoing (6 episodes announced)

Summary: (Wiki) The story is set on Earth in the future when abnormal activity on the sun devastates Earth's atmosphere and covers the entire planet in a sea of sand. Sam pursues Ozuma, an enemy of his brother. One day, Sam encounters Maya, who is being chased by the Theseus army.

I'd say the art and beginning of this anime held a great impression on me. This is the first time I have heard an opening with half english words and japanese words in it. I think its totally cool!

The art left the biggest impression on me. It seemed to me like the art is an older looking style and it reminds me what they drew from the 1900's or older. I don't want to mean it was a bad thing but it feels kinda nostalgic watching this anime in that kind of art style though the noses of the characters do bother me. I think the guy with the mask looks pretty cool!

The storyline is pretty interesting. I only watched the first episode today and it only introduced the characters and the problem. The setting to this anime is interesting. I mean, sand whales? Thats soo neat!!! It's soo different from the sea! I can't wait how this anime turns out!

Manga Recommendation: Ask Dr. Rin!

I just started watching this anime and I fell for it instantly! I can't believe I haven't watched this anime before! I guess there are tons of great animes out there that I haven't watched before. If you have any animes/mangas for me, just comment! I'll reply right away!

Age Rating: 13+ Teen
Status: Completed

Summary: (Wiki) Almost as soon as she mastered talking as a young child, Meirin Kanzaki discovered her feng-shui powers and developed them to such a degree that she has developed an online help desk where she guides and counsels people under the pseudonym of Dr. Rin with such skill that she inadvertently leeches away significant commerce from her father Shou.

As is usually the case with 7th grade girls, Meirin is not immune to developing infatuation for boys her age; in Meirin's case, the boy of choice is her childhood friend Asuka who has a difficult time placing occult phenomenon such as feng-shui in perspective. Unfortunately for Meirin, securing Asuka's acceptance is the least of her worries when she has visited upon her mysterious events and paranormal phenomenon of such complexity and treachery that she will need all the help and luck she can muster to save the day with her feng-shui divination and the hakke crystal bestowed unto her.

I was quite surprised when I found out that this anime was created by Kiyoko Arai (Beauty Pop). I didn't know!

I love the art so much! The storyline is amazing! It's soo cool how theres chinese words. I love the story so much! I haven't read a story like this!

I was just browsing animenewsnetwork for new animes and I spotted Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future, the supposedly sequel of Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream. Since the sequel wasn't out, I decided to try to watch the original and I fell in love with it right away! I love figure skating with a passion! I love the sport soo much!! It's too bad that I quit but that's all in the past.

Anyways, the anime is just adorable! Of course it had its cliche moments but overall, I love it! I enjoyed it! I think it was cool for the creators to combine figure skating with some sort of magic and fashion. I love it! The storyline is pretty original! The art is utterly adorable and hot! Ahem, I mean, the guys in it are soo hot!! ;)

This picture is soo cool! The Callings from the anime, Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream!

Found by Eiji, Kai was selected to be in ASHURUM's special force AESES and had to undergo intensive training in different areas, such as combat, hacking, and psychic training.

When Kai had free time he visited Hikaru at the hospital. Hikaru's condition never improved, however. After a year, Shen-lon warned Kai that Eiji actually only wanted his sister, because she was said to possess amazing psychic powers, but she was not able to use them due to her illness. Shen-lon then went on to tell Kai that Eiji was just hoping that Kai would have those amazing powers too.

Kai didn't believe Shen-lon and goes on a mission to Gald city, with the other E's, to infiltrate a hideout of guerillas that is said to have been using E's against their will. Kai finds some civilians caught in the middle of the battle. While trying to save a little girl, one of the civilians that is afraid of E's, shoots and kills Kai's partner.

Kai, still shocked from the death of his partner, tries to help the civilians, but meets up with Shen-lon. In a rage, Shen-lon unleashes a psychic blast that decimates half the city.

Later, Kai, washed up ashore, was found by a girl named Asuka. After being brought back to health, Kai was told by Yuuki, Asuka's brother, that he would not have his psychic powers back to the level they were unless he goes back to ASHURUM. However, after spending some time in the city with its residents, Kai decides to stay with Asuka and Yuuki for a while. As it turns out, Ashram has been brain-washing Kai and the other E's in order to make them more powerful. Aji plans to use Hikaru to destroy the human race to 'speed up evolution' so that only E's survive.

This anime is soo cool! The action scenes are sooo awesome! The art is hot! The storyline is utterly amazing!! I'm in love with it!! It reminds me of the X-men because society just disses them because Espers and Mutants are dangerous and such. I hate discrimination!! Anyways, I love how it has to do with Espers!! This is probably my first anime with Espers to be honest. I finished watching the anime in three days and I'm moving on the manga!

I want to master the's soo amazing!
