Bara to Juudan


i’ve been meaning to make a post about this manga ever since it came out because it’s by Kayoru so of course the art is gorgeous (seriously, the art is freaking beautiful) and everything is adorable ūüėČ

it’s about a girl named himemiya mitsuki who was just a normal high school student with a cruch on her neighbor. But on her 16th birthday, she notices some changes which lead to her everyday life being drastically changed. (i didn’t really want to spoil that much so im sorry if my summary is weird!)

anyone who likes shoujo mangas, good art, or just a sweet romance should definitely read this!

Bara to Juudan - Chapter 1 - 35

Bara to Juudan 1 Page 26


Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun


here’s another promising new anime for all the supernatural action lovers out there.

it’s about a boy named shino who was a survivor of a neighboring town that burned down. since there are a bunch of rumors about why the village burned down, he and the others that he is close to are shunned by the other villagers. Shino was also given the blade called Murasame which is extremely powerful. everything peaceful in his life is disrupted when the imperial church tries to take murasame and force him to go to the capital.

the anime had a pretty slow start but i think that within an episode or two it’ll become really good. the art is great and there’s a lot of action to come, i think. anyways, i think that supernatural lovers should at least try watching the first episode and maybe the second when it comes out


THE END OF MOST OF THE FALL ANIMES! :(


i just finished watching Sukitte Iinayo, Kamisama Hajimemashita, K, and Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun which have all ending during the week. It always makes me feel so old whenever i look forward to shows for so long and then they end. ūüė¶

anyways, im here to just give you guys a little review on all of them so that you can go and watch them and then grieve later

Sukitte Iinayo

it’s about a high school girl named tachibana mei who had always been let down by her friends so early on she had decided that she didn’t need friends. then she meets the most popular guy in school named yamato who is nice and once they start dating, he basically helps her to view everyone in a different way.

it’s sweet, ¬†funny, the art is gorgeous, and there are so many heartwarming scenes! all shoujo lovers should definitely check this out

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun

this manga has been my favorite for a long time. it’s about this girl named shizuku whose life basically revolves around studying. one day her teacher asks her to bring handouts to a guy who hasn’t shown up to school since the first day when he beat up some upperclassmen. once she meets him, he’s actually a huge weirdo and once she promises to be his friend, he comes to school and then everything at school changes for her.

it’s adorable, all the characters are hilarious, and you’ll just sit there not knowing whose love to root for

Kamisama Hajimemashita

this is about a girl who is kicked out of her house since her dad left her with a bunch of debt and meets a weird guy who offers her a place to stay When she goes to the place he tells her to, she arrives at a shrine and meets tomoe, a fox youkai shrine familiar, and two other helpers (?). apparently the man that she had met was the previous god of the shrine who left twenty years ago and now she has to take over his job.

one word can summarize this anime and manga perfectly: CUTE! any one who likes adorable shoujos should definitely check this out

K

this anime was pretty interesting yet really confusing to explain so im just going to use the one that anime news network has

Ashinaka High School is known for its unique setting: the entire campus is built on an island. Yashiro Isana, aka Shiro, is having lunch with a cat on one of the school rooftops. After his lunch break, Shiro goes on an errand for his classmate Kukuri to prepare for their upcoming school festival, only to be chased by some intimidating-looking men.

i don’t love that summary so i’m just gonna add some extra stuff. the country is secretly ruled by seven kings and apparently shiro killed on of the red king’s clansmen but he doesn’t remember it and after he meets kuro, a bunch of things start to be triggered.

there’s a lot of good music, the art is amazing, and a ton of amazing voice actors are in this (Daisuke Ono (;)) Yui Horie, Jun Fukuyama) and there is a lot of action. this is more of a shounen anime so all shounen lovers should watch this

there’s a few more animes that i’d like to suggest like Psycho Pass (love it!) ¬†but i’ll probably do the suggestions for those once they end.


Kamisama Game


i realized that i really need to post more action/shounen stuff so here’s a nice shounen manga

it’s about a guy name¬†Akiba Takara who is the vie president at his school, good-looking, and seems to have everything going for him. one day he gets cursed by the goddess Kanou that makes him unable to leave Kanou City until he is able to fulfill a hundred people’s wishes. that means that all his life plans about going and studying tokyo would be ruined if he doesn’t break the curse. then he receives a weird task of finding the god hidden in his school within a month or else the entire world will end. Now let the game begin….

it’s pretty good. the story’s alright and the art is great so shounen lovers should read this!


Fate Zero


i’ve been meaning to do a post on the fate stay night/ fate zero series so here it is! along with the music that i like

since fate zero is still airing, i’ll just summarize the anime.

it’s about the holy grail war where seven magi are chosen by the holy grail to fight for the wish that the grail will grant. in order to fight each other, the magi summon servants (mostly strong heroes of the past) and try to beat each other¬†mentally¬†and physically.

there’s some humor, a lot of action, and the story is irresistable. there is also a little bit of romance that makes everything better so everyone who needs a good anime should check this out.

im also in love with the openings and endings so here’s the list:

the first opening is oath sign by LiSA (Yui from Angel Beats)

the first ending is Memoria by Eir Aoi (the video is amazing, it shows the servants and their pasts. and the song is catchy in a good way)

the second opening is to the beginning by kalafina (if you haven’t seen my previous post, i LOVE kalafina! great song, perfect harmonies, it’s just amazing so definitely give this a try)

the second ending is sora wa takaku kaze wa utau by haruna luna (it has been stuck in my head all week! i love the lyrics, the music, and her voice! try this song too if you like nice melodies)


Spring 2012 Anime


i was watching kuroko no basket and having a blast when i realized that i didn’t even post anything about the new spring animes. i’m sorry for that. so here it is:

of course kuroko no basket

Fate Zero part 2 (i’m so happy it came back! don’t ever end!)

hiiro no kakera

Jormungand (https://hilarypham.wordpress.com/2012/01/11/jormungand/  OMG! THEY MADE AN ANIME! I CAN DIE HAPPY!)

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia (i’d give ¬†this a 3/5. if you’re into more shounen stuff then try this)


Kuroko no Basket


this a great new manga/anime that just came out and so far, i’m loving the story

in the past three years of basketball history, there was a “generation of miracles” consisting of middle schoolers at teiko (did i spell that right?) middle school and all five were prodigies. but there was supposedly a sixth phantom member that was thought of as the best player by the other five members. so now, with the new school year, all the members of the “generation of miracles” have gone to their own prestigious high schools. at a certain school,¬†the sixth player joins the basketball team and instead he’s weak and extremely easy to miss.

there’s a lot of humor, sports, and the art is amazing (for all the shoujo lovers out there, all the guys are good looking) so shounen people: you should watch this


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


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.

 


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!


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


Sayonara Football


if you haven’t noticed from all my other posts, i love mangas that have a strong female character. this manga is no exception

it’s about this girl named Onda Nozomi who is amazing at soccer (football) and she can keep up with the male players at her school’s soccer team but soccer is a very physical sport and since she’s a girl, things are tough. but she’s determined to play in an official match and uses all her¬†tactics to try to get the coach to agree.

if i make the manga sound like she does something illegal, she doesn’t. it’s nice to see a girl try to be equal to guys so definitely read try this


Antimagia


here’s a great shounen with magic, a lot of gore, and fighting but it’s good

the story is about a country that was taken over by this huge ass called Demonas and he made the entire country suck then tried to forcibly marry the princess. the prince of the country¬†supposedly¬†died a few years before but at their wedding, he comes and summons this huge creature which kills Demonas. There have only been three chapters out so i’m pretty sure it’s about how Lucas, the prince, gets back his power and kills bandits around the country.

the art is great, lots of action, and some of the guys are really hot (see the end of chapter 3 ūüėČ )


Blood Parade


this a good shoujo/shounen manga with vampires and something i’d like to consider romance

it’s about this guy named Gile whose family was killed by the original pureblood vampire and tried to become one of the twelve apostles, and orginaization who protects the world from vampires, and kill that original pureblood. one day he gets partnered up with a girl named luna who is mysterious and has a witty attitude. as they work together and get to know each other better, it seems there’s more to luna than he had first thought. (that’s as far as i’m willing to say without spoiling the story)

the art is absolutely gorgeous, luna is a really cute character, and you’ll love the story


Pureblood Boyfriend


Another great shoujo but it’s also got a nice vampire twist.

it’s about this girl Kana who came to her famous school on a sports scholarship but got injured. one day she saves girl from getting run over in the street and gets hurt herself. then her childhood friend appears, bites her throat and turns her into his servant. turns out he’s a vampire (and very hot ūüėČ ) and he’s participating in a game that is he can find and collect all the other stigmas (these weird tattoo things) in the world, he’ll become the ultimate being.

there’s a lot of romance, kind of weird lines here and there, but the art is¬†absolutely¬†gorgeous and all the guys are really hot so anyone who wants a really good shoujo, read this


Red Raven


for all you shounen and action lovers out there but there’s also a little bit of romance for the shoujo lovers out there, here is a really great manga with a lot of fighting and really cute characters

the story is about this society that is really corrupt, there’s mafia everywhere and the government is really weak. but there’s an organization that’s merciless and famous for their agents who kill without hesitation, the Last Enforcement¬†Organization¬†(aka Red Raven). then there’s the daughter of a mafia boss but she wants to turn her group into a good group and she meets this weird guy (hey, i thought he was cute ūüėČ ) and after a few things happen he turns out to be a Red Raven agent.

lots of action and what i really want to call romance but definitely give this a try


Samurai Drive


to all those who love a good manga about modern kendo and samurai, you’ll like this.

in this society, people who are direct descendants of samurai can openly carry around swords and in a city, there’s a swordsman called Shiroyasha who is defeating strong swordsmen so strong swordsmen come to city to hunt down shiroyasha¬†(they weren’t really clear about the whole shiroyasha part in the manga but it’s just implied that). then there’s Ibuki, a descendant of a samurai but has a very strong sense of justice. when he sees the mysterious transfer student, kokonoe, fight one day he realizes kokonoe is shiroyasha and starts to get to know him better. after figuring out that they are both fans (maybe not fans but if i said they were believers it would sound like a cult) of a kendo instructor who was slandered two years before, they team up and try to discover the truth.

the manga really has a lot of potential so if you like action and kendo, read this


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


Sengoku Strays


man, i love historical-shoujo mangas. and here’s agood one that has a totally badass heroine who beats up guys using either a wooden sword or even a hoe.

the story is about kasane who is your average high school girl but she’s also really good at kendo. one day when she saves her brother from getting run over by a truck, she grabs on to a sword and gets transported back to the warring states era. after a few things happen and she saves a group of prisoners from a castle using her skills, she gets caught up with Oda Nobunaga‘s rise to power. (for those of you who have no idea what i’m talking about, nobunaga basically started the unification of japan in the 1500s and was a military guy so he conquered a lot of japan). then everything gets pretty entertaining when she gets pulled into all the fights and gets involved with revolts.

the art is really good, you’ll love kasane, and the story is amazing so definitely check this out


TISTA


this is for the people who like action, gore, and shounen stories.

it’s about this girl named Tista Lone who by day is just a plain looking girl with good grades and not that many friends. But in actuality she’s Sister Militia, a notorious assassin with special eyes that can see a target whether it’s moving or not and kill with a single bullet. (how cool is that?) she’s an assassin working for the church to kill criminals and it just shows her day to day life a bit.

warning: very sad. i don’t want to spoil the story but it’s sad. the art is more graphic novel art than regular manga art.

i totally recommend this for those who want a good action read
