Hatsukoi no Itazura


this is an amazingly cute shoujo by Ichikawa Shou which means that it’s incredible 😉

it’s about a girl who can’t forget a promise she made with her first love that they would meet on a hill on her 16th birthday. When the day comes, there is a boy there waiting for her but he seems a little bit different from what she remembers

this is a gorgeous shoujo that people should definitely read!!!


Renai Demo Classic


this is another amazing manga about the taisho era that is so adorable!

it’s about Aoi whose family used to be a merchant family but became wealthy because their business was successful. unfortunately, she is nowhere near a lady yet and so for six years reiichirou, a fallen noble,  has been teaching her the skills she needs. the story follows her daily life so it’s funny and cute

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 😉

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!

Shinigami Hime no Saikon


this shoujo just came out really recently and i absolutely love it. it’s kind of weird because the prologue is under Shinigami Hime no Saikon and a chapter that just came out recently that doesn’t really follow the story chronologically is Shinigamihime no Saikon – Baraen no Tokei Kousaku.

it’s about a girl named alicia faitlin who is the daughter of an aristocrat but her first marriage ended with the death of the fiance and thus gave her the label of “”the princess of death”. a year later, her uncle finally is able to arrange a marriage for her but her new fiance is rumored to be a tyrant

the art is adorable!! seriously, it’s gorgeous so shoujo lovers should read this!

 


Brundage no Mahou no Shiro


this manga is so cute! it’s absolutely adorable, the art is gorgeous, and the characters are all so cute!

it’s about a girl named adrienne who is kidnapped by a former prince named donatian christian so that she could bear his child. at first, adrienne hadn’t liked him but now she’s in love with him. this story follows their life together and the people they meet and the challenges they face.

any shoujo manga lover definitely should check this out!!

Warau Kanoko-sama/Koi Dano Ai Dano


this is one of my favorite mangas because kanoko is not at all like your typical heroine

warau kanoko-sama is about kanoko during middle school. her family has always moved around a lot so she never really got close to any of her classmates and thinks of herself as a “refreshing girl” and basically observes the other students and keeps a journal about them. at a certain school, she meets the three most popular students and gets involved with them so it’s about how crazy she acts at all the schools she attends.

koi dano ai dano is about her high school but now one of the students she met at her middle school is her classmate and together they disrupt the club status quo at the school while tsubaki (the guy from her middle school) tries to get her to realize he likes her.

they are both hilarious, the art is alright, and all the characters are amazing so anyone who likes a good shoujo should just read koi dano ai dano but anyone who likes humor and a strong female character should read both 😉


Cubism Love


i’ve been meaning to recommend this manga for a long time now and finally i’ve gotten around to remembering 😉

this is pretty interesting because it’s really different from your typical shoujo manga. it’s about a girl named noriko who gets into an accident during a track competition but when she opens her eyes she meets a doctor who tells her that they were only able to preserve her brain in a black box. then she slowly learns to live and falls in love only as a brain in a box.

it’s interesting, cute, and the art is amazing so all shoujo lovers should read this!


Chihayafuru 2


i’m so excited! chihayafuru just came back and judging by the first season, the anime will just get better and better.

for those of you who didn’t watch the first season, i suggest that you watch it as soon as possible. it’s funny, the art is gorgeous, and all the characters are absolutely amazing.

it’s about chihaya ayase who loves karuta which is a card game in japan (just google karuta, it’s hard to explain…) that is also extremely competitive. when chihaya was younger, she met a boy named arata wataya who basically taught her how amazing karuta really was. ever since then, she’s been striving to be the best karuta player in japan and now she’s in high school and of course she starts a club and meets incredible people while playing karuta.

so far in season 2, it’s been great. it’s still hilarious, the art is still as good, and things seem like they’ll get better so definitely watch this anime!


Amnesia


this is one of the new animes that are part of the winter simulcast and i’m just going to review each of them after i watch them.

this anime is actually pretty strange/confusing. it’s about this girl who, at the beginning of the episode, passes out at the cafe where she works and loses her memories. then she meets two guys who are supposedly her two childhood friends but of course she can’t remember them. next, she talks to this spirit that only she can hear and realizes that his soul bumped into hers which caused her to lose her memory and she learns that she should go about her daily life and hope to regain her memories.

it’s okay if you like stories with amnesia. the art is amazing though. seriously, the art is gorgeous, the male characters are all really really REALLY hot, and the plot seems to be going somewhere. you should watch this if you’re more into the girly-shoujo animes

 


Ookamidomo no Shitsukekata


this is a cute manga by shiraishi yuki so of course the art is gorgeous

it’s about Origawa Industry Public High School nicknamed the “Jail School” which is filled with guys. but in this school, there’s a single girl named nozomi who is the leader of her class. when soga keiji transfers into her class and doesn’t talk to anyone, she tries to get him to join the car competition with the rest of the class.

the manga is pretty short (it only has three chapters or so) but the romance is adorable and the art is amazing so try this for a quick read!


Flowernoid no Shuufukushi


a great new shoujo (yes another shoujo that i found) that is adorable and all the characters are a bit….weird but funny

it’s set in a world where there are flowernoids, dolls that were created to calm people’s hearts. in a clinic on top of a hill lives satsuki kasumi who has an extreme fear of people but is a repairman who fixes flowernoids. since she’s pretty bad at communicating to other people, everyone thinks that if they touch her they’ll die so people leave her alone. one day she finds an flowernoid-a rose, an extremely expensive kind- and after accidently saying his name he follows her home and decides that she’ll be his new master.

the story is great, the art is beautiful, the characters are fresh and cute so read this if you like cute heroines!


Atashi no Banbi


this is a cute shoujo with a lot of comedy and a tsundere. i starting enjoying the manga after “comedy” and “tsundere”

the story follows haruko nanase who used to get really bad grades but one day started to try studying and realized it was fun. now she’s entering an extremely prestigious high school as the top student. although she’s smart, she has no idea how to interact with other people. one day while riding the train, she witnesses a fight with one of the guys wearing th same uniform as her school’s. When the fight is over, he tries to make her pay a fee for watching the fight but she escapes. the next day, it turns out that guy is in her class and what’s worse he sits next to her. but once she meets him, she starts to see things differently than before.

the manga is pretty promising (why is there only one chapter out?!?!) and the characters are pretty amusing to watch so anyone who like comedy, school life, and romance, try 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)


Last Game


sorry for the long wait but here is a great shoujo manga that i absolutely love!

it’s about a guy named yanagi who is rich, smart, and good looking so basically the perfect guy whoo was always the best at what he did. then in comes kujou who transfers into his primary school class. she’s plain looking, is boring, and poor but beats him in academics and sports on the first day she arrives. when that happened, yanagi swore that he would beat her one day and followed her (it’s actually cute, not creepy) throughout high school and finally into college where his feelings for her have changed a bit..

the story is adorable, there’s a  lot of humor, and the art is gorgeous so shoujo lovers should definitely read this!

other works by Amano Shinobu that you should read are:

Katakoi Triangle-

a cute shoujo that is really confusing and cute because all three of the characters keep misunderstanding each other but in a cute way

Natsu no Kakera – really cute oneshots that make you cry too

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


Cyboy


another great manga by nishikata mai

it’s about a guy named Kujou Kiyosumi who used to be nerdy and not very cool looking. after being rejected by the girl he liked in elementary school because he was “digusting”, he decided to change his entire appearance. with the help of his friend Sagiya Maki, his training begins and he enters high school as a handsome guy who immediately becomes popular. then he falls in love with a girl who hates popular guys

it’s got a lot of humor, the art is amazing, and you’ll love the characters so read this if you want a cute shoujo to read!

*AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!! THEY’RE EATING CANDY BARS!!*


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

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
