Hello my pigeons~!
;___; oh man, it’s been so long since I’ve been on. Damn life… Not only did I miss the 3rd anniversary of my blog and my 600,000th hit, but I never got to say Happy Halloween or Happy Thanksgiving to my readers….failllllll…
Gah, let’s focus on something else: Lala DX! Yeah, it’s not Sylph. I was halfway through the September issue of Sylph when the urge to read shojo one-shots possessed me and I ended up getting Lala DX again. It’s been almost a year since I bought my last issue and I’m happy to find I can actually read the contents without too much of a struggle 8D MY SHOJO READING POWERS ARE INCREASING MUHAHAHAHA! *rolls around evilly*
After having such a nice experience
being able to read reading Lala DX, I might start buying more issues again. Here’s a random quick peek into the Lala DX 11.2012 issue :3 (pictures are taken with my camera because Lala DX is fat and hard to scan ~)
Lala Series ~
(Pretty much I haven’t been following any of these series so…yeah, don’t expect much here xD)
恋だの愛だの・Koi da no Ai da no Chapter 19
辻田リり子 Tsujita Ririko
Election arc ~
会長はメイド様！・ Kaichou wa Maid-sama (The Student Body President is a Maid!? or in the US, Maid-sama) Special Chapter “Sakura-iro” or “The Color of Sakura Blossoms”
藤原ヒロ Fujiwara Hiro
Focuses on the drama between side character Sakura and her boyfriend Kuuga. I don’t really follow Maid-sama but is it wrong I kind of ship Sakura with that guy wearing glasses, Kou (not sure what his full name is)? xD
サクラの秘事 Sakura no Himegoto (Secrets of the Sakura…or Sakura’s Secret) scene.6/chapter 6
萩尾彬 Hagio Akira
From what I can gather, the main girl’s grandpappy went into debt or something and a fellow student of hers came to collect on the debt…which included the girl and her dog. To this student, she is like…a pet. I’m thinking the girl is an ojou-sama seeing as how everyone keeps referring to her with the honorific “sama.” Also, the main girl has a fiancée who is the school’s doctor…and just happens to be dating the guy who collected on her debt!? o__O da fuq!? But the guy who collected the debt on her might actually be liking the main girl…even though he’s playing for the other team…
This chapter adds in a fourth corner to the love triangle…and the bi dude gets all jealous. Also, we learn the main girl went through some sort of trauma that makes it so she’ll do whatever anyone tells her? o__O; I’m too lost to understand what’s going on. I just read the chapter for practice…
遥かなる時空の中で５・Haruka Naru Toki no Naka de 5 (Deep into Space and Time or in the US, Haruka) Special Chapter
水野十子 Mizuno Tooko
Um…basically about one of the bishies fanboying over the main girl and being creepy about it ^^; (like watching her from behind a bush (no literally, he’s hiding behind a bush tree thing and it’s like so pathetic in terms of foliage yet no one sees him lol) from afar and leaving flowers by her door and watching her reaction from behind his pathetic bush afar <- like that everyone thinks the mysterious person leaving the flowers at the main girl’s door is a female xD).
赤い糸・Akai Ito (The Red Thread) One-shot(?)
響ワタル Hibiki Wataru
Well….Akai Ito was certainly a fucked up one-shot. Might use it for Fucking Shojo in the future. All I’ll say here is the story involves reincarnation, love beyond siblings, and some wtf sprinkled at the end.
らびっとアリス・Rabbit Alice Chapter 2
森生まさみ Morio Masami
Okay, let’s see…Alice, our main lady, is a special lucky rabbit who somehow got reborn as a rabbit girl. She loves this dude who was her previous owner when she was a rabbit and she’s currently looking for his reincarnation. However, by the power of shojo, he was reborn into two people. Brothers to be exact. One brother has the powers of her old master and he’s a sweetheart (though part of me thinks he’ll end up being psycho or something towards the end). The other brother has the old master’s looks and he’s a horny playboy who always gets into fights with Alice. Now Alice is in a bind – which one will she choose? Oh my ~
At first I was thinking Rabbit Alice was going to be dumb. I mean, the first two pages show Alice in bunny form taking a shit on pretty boy brother’s pants. Me: (ಠ_ಠ) the hell kind of shojo is this!? And it’s so obvious that she’ll get with pretty boy brother because that’s how shojo rolls so what’s the point of even asking, WHO WILL SHE GET WITH!? However, after reading the chapter, I found the series to be quite cute. Surprisingly. The characters are fun and that’s what I like in my shojo. As long as things stay fun, I’m good. It’s when they get dumb, that’s when I throw my hands in the air and say f this.
八潮と三雲・Yashio and Mikumo Chapter 19
草川為 Kusakawa Nari
Yes. Yashio. Take that shirt off and press yourself against Mikumo.
Daz right, girl. He’s half naked and hanging all over you. Oh yes. Yessh <3
Lol sorry, I was so not expecting to see something as hawt as this scene xD In chapter 19, Yashio and Mikumo have a fight but the two make up…
I must add this to my “catch up and read” pile :3 Shirtless guys are a win in my book! (unless they are assholes, then they can be admired from afar)
桃山キョーダイ・ Momoyama Kyoudai (The Momoyama Siblings) Last Chapter
ふじつか雪 ・ Fujitsuka Yuki
Last chapter. Basically…the boy and the girl get together. They’re older and they’re like, yeah, last chapter, time to become boyfriend girlfriend and shit ~ (no kiss scene though. The most romantic thing in the last chapter was holding hands o__O;)
うちのポチの言うことには ・Uchi no Pochi no Iu-koto ni wa (Do as I say My Pochi(?)) Chapter 23
橘裕 ・ Tachibana Yutaka
From what I can tell…for some reason, the main boy (Pochi?) tells the main girl to go protect her own butt and leaves so she takes up some other dude with glasses to be her bodyguard. Also, I guess the main girl has like…female friends who are bodyguards also? I…I don’t know. While performing in a school play, the dreaded yellow eyed assassin(?) appears and is about to shank the main female when Pochi steps in to save her. Her: ; A ; Pochi! Wtf? Him: I may not work for you, but you’re my princess, baby *dramatic pose* He tussles with Yellow Eyes while the main girl is escorted out…with all the gentle care one would give to a sack of potatoes xD The chapter ends with some lady who has been in a coma for some time awakening…and Pochi’s whereabouts unknown…
I have to say this but fuck, that girl looks like jailbait! I have a hard time believing she’s the same age as Pochi! I mean, shiz. When they stand next to each other, I see a brother with his elementary school student sister, not two folks who are in love D8 EW!
帝の至宝・Mikado no Shihou (The Emperor’s Treasure) Chapter 22
仲野えみこ Nakano Emiko
Main girl Kouran is invited to slumber party with the emperor, Shiki. Both are awkward fishes about it but they still have their sleepover…until the emperor is called away to do some emperor stuff. Kouran goes out to get some water and overhears Shiki giving out war commands. Her: D8 oh shit that’s right, I totally forgot you were the emperor lol. Afraid that Kouran is scared of Shiki, random dude Uchou is like, let me tell you my life story. We learn his background and then he tells the main girl that Shiki does what he’s gotta do. Her: oh I know that. I’m just a sad panda that I don’t really know much about him.
Him: o___o …then wtf was the purpose of me telling my back story?
The chapter ends with Kouran telling Uchou they need to make Shiki look like a pussy, not a strong man, to prevent war? Yeah…I need to read the next chapter to make sure I got that right >___>
Mikado no Shihou is definitely a cute series…or it was until friggin Uchou had to ruin it with his life story filled with big words and war stuff. Then it crawled for me oTL Oh well, another series to add to my “catch up and read” pile ~ (as long as Uchou STFU…)
Bear Bear (Chapter not listed)
池ジュン子 Ike Jyunko
D8 THIS WAS BY THE SAME MANGA-KA OF DESERT REQUIEM THE HELL!? Holy crap, she must have seen the shojo light or something because no more hanging your friend’s corpse from a tree before singing off into the sunset wearing said friend’s clothes from this series…yet.
I’m surprised by how adorable Bear Bear is x3 Definitely Definitely a series I want to catch up *chucks into the “catch up and read” pile).
プレゼントは真珠・Present wa Shinjyu (Pearl Present) Last Chapter
The last chapter. Curly Hair Dude gets together with Short Hair Chick. The cross dressing butler chick kinda gets together with that blonde hair dude (I say kinda because they’re a bit stubborn with their feels). Oh, and the last page shows Curly Hair Dude’s mom and dad coming back and it turns out they left because mom was preggo with a baby that Curly Hair Dude didn’t even know she was carrying (although everyone else in the series knew apparently). Well, surprise son! You have a baby sister now lol! The end!
I kinda hope there’s some kind of bonus chapter for this series because the ending kind of…sucks >___>;
Splitting the post into two pages. The next page will focus on Lala DX oneshots as well as what to expect in the next issue (Millennium Snow, people ~)
