Back and I’m posting about stuff. But first, a song that I’ve got stuck in my head xD:
I would like to thank the kind ladies at bikachama for exposing me to this awesome song 8D You can get buy Lovey Dovey on iTunes ~ If you’re interested in more music such as Lovey Dovey, I suggest checking out their blog ~ They’ve got all kinds of music and manga related posts :3
(if you readers know any good websites to listen to J-pop/K-pop I’d love to know ~)
Okay, now to the meat and potatoes of the post!
What I’ve read:
Monkey High (complete)
Not the best but not the worst. Monkey High provided entertainment though. Haruna’s tsundere act kind of got old after awhile (I liked that even she noticed her behavior towards the end xD). I love love love Macharu – not because he’s outside the typical male love interest mold, but just his personality in general. He’s so adorable yet can be manly too ~
Macharu’s best friend confused me. I couldn’t tell if he was into Haruna or Macharu or what. Think the only reason he existed was to add tension and cockblocks :/
I was hoping the series would shine the spotlight on some of the side characters but alas, Monkey High focused on one couple only. Not to say that’s bad, but I always enjoy seeing how others develop (that and I get tired of the whole ANGST CONFUSION MISTRUST TENSION MAKE UP REPEAT scenes that couples usually have after they get together ^^; ).
Overall: Enjoyed ^^
Pandora Hearts 1 – 9
After who knows how many months of holding these nine volumes on my shelf, I finally got down to reading Pandora Hearts. All I can say is…WTF TOOK ME SO LONG D8 THIS SHIZ IS GOOD STUFF! Took awhile for the addiction to kick in but once I past volume 2, there was no going back ~ Pandora Hearts has everything I love – cuties, background stories, friendship ~ Ah, I’m so happy Yen Press is releasing the English version 8D With the dollar doing so shitty against the yen, I’m glad to have a cheaper alternative (plus I love Yen Press’s translations ~ you can see the love ^^).
Overall: NEW FAVORITE SERIES 8D
Pearl Pink (complete)
Pearl Pink totally slipped through my radar. I didn’t even notice it until I found the whole set on sale for $2 a volume brand new. The covers were kind of… >___> but at $2 a pop? How could I refuse?
And now I’m glad I gave the series a shot! It’s actually really entertaining :D The romance is secondary to the story so it wasn’t all about LOVE ME LOVE ME LOVE ME MAIN GUY! The characters are what made the story fun ~ They’ll definitely get a chuckle out of you ~
Overall: Really Enjoyed 8D
- Blue Exorcist/Ao no Exoricst #2 – bought this when waiting for an appointment. Ah man, I can’t believe how behind I’ve gotten D8 Rightstuf, I need me a VIZ sale, stat!
- Cocoa (Japanese) – ew… >___> This is seriously geared towards middle schoolers!?
- Majina #1 (Japanese) – an older Sylph title. I’ve been meaning to get into the series before the books go OOP. About a bunch of boys and some drama involving fortune telling ~ Lot of mystery in this first volume ~
- Kamitsuki #1 (Japanese) – FRIGGIN ADORABLE! THIS JUST MAKES ME SQUEAL IN HAPPINESS ~
- Hoshikuzuchou no Pan no Mimi #1 (Japanese) – another older Sylph title. I’ve been wanting to figure out the story since it’s currently still running in Sylph at the moment. Mimi kind of annoys me .____. she’s too hot headed and causes lots of angst…
- High and High #1 (Japanese) – the long haired bishi keeps making me think of Tales of the Abyss xD Love the eye candy he serves as ;D So far the first volume entertains 8D The characters have amusing chemistry!
- Zero Count #1 (Japanese) – Had this on my shelf for awhile…6 years actually ^^; I grabbed this at a bookstore back when I had like no experience in Japanese whatsoever. Glad to see my skills are improving enough for me to finally read this volume! Maybe one day I can read the rest of Never Give Up! (by the same manga-ka) ;___; 9
