Inu x Boku Secret Service


a great action-romance packed manga and anime that has a lot of humor and the cutest characters!

the story follows ririchiyo who is the descendant of an ayakashi. in the past, ayakashi and humans mixed and for some reason, the families with the ayakashi blood have always been very rich. but since the people who inherit the blood are seen as the ayakashi reincarnated, the families always treat them like the early ayakashi and so ririchiyo developed a sharp tongue to protect herself. since the descendants are weaker than full blooded ayakashi, to protect them there was a building where ayakashi descendants would live together with secret service body guards and they would band together in case they were attacked. the anime starts as ririchiyo moves in to the building, intending to live alone but she finds her own guard there. although she tries to get rid of him at first, she slowly gets to know him and meets the other people who live in the building.

i probably didn’t explain the plot right but definitely check this one out! there’s a lot of humor, the art is amazing (god, i want ririchiyo’s hair!), there’s romance, and there’s some action. the anime recently ended (the second i finished watching the last episode i wrote this post ;)) so watch this!!!

if you like supernatural animes/mangas, read this. just to convince you to watch the anime and read the manga, i’m gonna post a bunch of pictures

Natsume Yuujinchou


this has to be in my top favorite shoujo mangas ever. it’s sad, funny, and there’s an anime!

the story follows the book of friends that is a collection of numerous youkai‘s signatures and gives the owner of the book the power to control all those youkai. then natsume, who can see youkai, inherits the book from his grandmother who was notorious for defeating youkai back in her day. when he was younger his parents died and forced him to be moved from relative to relative and each of them ended up not liking him because he could see youkai. after moving with the fujiwaras who are kind and let him live with them, he starts to meet youkai and gets to know them more

it’s a touching story and the art in the manga is a little bit messy but i just love this so definitely check it out

Happy Holidays! (W-Juliet)


sorry for the late post but i’ve been caught up in family, shopping, and sweet desserts but now i’m finally gonna post!

earlier today i started a new manga called W-Juliet and it’s got a funny and cute plot. It’s about this girl named Ito who looks more like a guy than a girl and a guy named Makoto who wants to become and actor but his dad doesn’t want him to so he made a deal that if he spent his high school life as a girl, he’d get to be an actor. Well, they meet fall in love and the story follows their crazy high school life together ;).

I also recommend all the other mangas by Emura like:

W-Juliet II (if you like W-Juliet, then read this too of course)

Grand Sun was a great read! i completely recommend it!

Michibata no Tenshi

Kyou mo Ashita mo

and Gokuraku Doumei although i didn’t really like this one

if you want to read any new years/chirstmas manga chapters and anime episodes here’s my list:

W-Juliet read chapters 18 and 19

Kaichou wa Maid Sama read chapter 56

a cute christmas oneshot i found was Ore no Subete ga Kimi no Mono

watch episode 17-19 of Toradora!

chapter 131.5 in Skip Beat!

episode 9 of Fruits Basket

If there are others you can think of, just add a comment but i can’t remember anymore new years/christmas scenes

Well, happy holidays. watch this video, i saw it and cried http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAIEamakLoY&list=FLwd_RLtkQug2u8iI4fcT9vQ&index=2&feature=plpp_video. please don’t expect another post until a few days into january. we bought sparkling cider so……i’ll be out for a few days 😉


Kyousogiga


it finally came out! (actually, the official release date was a few weeks ago but let’s ignore that fact) after weeks of watching only trailers, i went crazy and watching this about five times.

the version i watched didn’t have subtitles but the art was amazing. the graphics were really clear cut and really up to the times good. the story is about a girl named koto and two other kids who are trying to find a rabbit that will bring them home. They’re in a place ruled by a monk, demon (?), and a priest and while they’re there, it’s total mayhem and there’s a really awesome opening. Then she discovers a secret plot (i’m trying really hard not to spoil it!) and it gets kinda weird but i loved it

rie kugimiya voiced koto and she is my favorite seiyuu because she do all the tsundere and crazy girl voices perfectly and in this show, she just nailed it!

if you love action, humor, and just great art, you have to watch this! even if you can’t understand what they’re saying, the graphics are good enough that you won’t even care about what the hell is going on. 😉


Hanasaku Iroha


this an anime i’ve been meaning to watch for a long time now and i finally started it!

the show is about a girl named ohana who has a really bad mom. one day, her mom runs away with her boyfriend and tells her to go to a hot spring inn called kissuiso since her grandma is there. the second she arrives, ohana is put to work to earn her keep and she undergoes training to become a waitress at the inn. it’s a really good slice of life story that makes you laugh sometimes then makes you cry.

it’s got romance, a cute tsundere, a lot of humor (but you have to get through the first two episodes then you start to love the show), and it’s just a good anime so i totally recommend it!


Zombie Loan


all the people who love shounen, zombies, and action, this is one of my favorite mangas and animes

it’s kind of old (2007 old) but the story is about these two guys who are zombies and a girl with special powers who have to pay back their debt since they paid a ferryman to keep themselves alive. it’s all about them fighting these other other zombies and it’s got humor, what I’d view as a littler bit of romance, and it’s just fun to read

there’s also an anime but it’s only 13 episodes long so it isn’t half what the manga is. there’s also a lot of horror too so if you liked mangas like a ton of action, this is perfect for you!
