Hana no Kishi


just as i promised, here’s another great manga by nishikata mai

Ever since the day Ran Kurono’s older brother was killed while protecting Sei Ohtori, she has dedicated her skills and life to one day becoming the First Knight of the next head of the Ohtori family, even concealing the fact that she’s a woman forever. For generations the Kurono family has served the Ohtori family as their First Knight, but 11 other lower knights with ill intentions of using the Ohtori family’s authority vie for that title. Not only that, but Sei is being tested for being suitable for the title of head of the family. Upon entering Saint Locks Academy, the days of both Ran and Sei’s trials begin, all the while being helped by Sei’s untidy and unrefined fiance, Ibara Tennou.

if you didn’t read venus capriccio i’ll just say it again: the art is GORGEOUS! i’m sorry i used the summary from mangahere but i just couldn’t find the right words to summarize the manga! and it was driving me crazy.

anyways, the story has a lot of romance, humor, and you’ll just fall in love with ran’s character.

Venus Capriccio


this is one of my all time favorite shoujo mangas ever! the art is absolutely gorgeous and the story is adorable.

it’s about these two childhood friends named Takami, a girl who’s a tomboy, and Akira, a guy who looks kinda like a girl. they met at their piano school and ever since then takami has been looking at him as a younger brother. fortunately, akira’s not as dull.

if you love cute childhood love stories, this is perfect for you

look forward to all of nishikata mai’s works that i’ll be posting throughout the week! 😉


The Hands the Demon Adored


usually i don’t do posts for oneshots but this one was absolutely amazing

it was about a demon named rin who has been collecting beautiful body parts for his body. one day, he sees a girl named miwako play the piano and asks her to give him her hands. then she promises to give them to him after she plays the accompaniment for a wedding.

the art is gorgeous and the ending is perfect (well, a little more romance would have been nice). read this if you like sweet shoujo oneshots

i did an earlier post of Takagi Shigeyoshi’s works but here’s just another list if you haven’t read the other post:

Film Girl

Bitter Trap

Bara to Dangan

Anya Kouro

Hana ni Arashi

Hyakujuu Kingdom


Toyko Ravens


this is a shounen manga with lots of action and supernatural stuff

the story follows tsuchimikado harutora who is from the famous tsuchimikado family that has brought forth powerful onmyoji in the past. although he’s part of the family, he was born from a branch family and didn’t inherit the power to see spirit energy. natsume, his cousin, was chosen to succeed the family since she’s really strong. one day, she stops into town from tokyo and drags a bunch of trouble with her.

there’s a lot of action, some romance (not that great in the romance department though), and great art so read this!


Hibi Chouchou


this is a very promising new shoujo that just came out. the art is gorgeous and it’ll probably turn out to be a great story

it follows a girl named Suiren who is really cute but after being bugged by boys and girls, she became a really quiet and lonely person. at the start of the story, she’s just entering high school but there’s one guy who is also quiet but doesn’t look at her like the others.

it’s very romantic so anyone who wants a good shoujo, here it is


Noah


i found this great new shoujo and it’s got romance, humor, and a hilarious female character.

the story is about a girl named Noah who chooses to go to Saint Rinnell after seeing a really handsome guy in one of their brochures. she’s a really talented painter and was adopted by her grandparents when she was young so she’s always loved her family but is a little bit….weird. during the opening ceremony of her school, she sees the guy from the brochure but ends up getting suspended. then her house burns down and since they have a large debt to pay back she started to plan on quitting school but the guy that she followed to the school tells her that he’ll pay for the debt. of course, this leads to a huge mess that i’m really looking forward to

the art is nice and noah has a hilarious personality so read this is you want to read a funny shoujo


Rolan the Forgotten King


i just started this about ten minutes ago and i’m loving the story and art! it’s a shounen with romance but not quite shoujo yet and there’s a LOT of action

the story is about these two countries (the commercial union and the clauven empire) that are at war and the commercial union is currently winning. then the leader of the commercial union announced that if the princess of the empire marries him, there will be a ceasefire. the princess, etoile (i wanna have a name that pretty!) and her guard rolan have been together for ten years and so when she asks him to save her, everything gets messy

there’s romance (what i hope is romance) and lots of action and fighting so if you like shounen stuff, read this
