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


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


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


Guruguru Meguru


this is a hilarious shoujo that’s, I’ll admit it, a little weird

it’s about a pure and innocent girl named Meguru who went to school at an all girls school but now is starting her high school life at a co-ed school. Her parents have been overseas for the last eight years so her older brother practically raised her and developed a sister complex. Then Meguru meets her classmate named Yuuma who immediately falls in love with her and it just follows her crazy life as her brother and Yuuma try to win her over.

it’s funny, the art is gorgeous , and you’ll love it

some other works by HATTA Ayuko are also great so definitely read them too:

Boku No Sekai Kimi No Real

Ookami Shoujo To Kuro Ouji which is about this girl who always lies to her friends that she has a great boyfriend then claims that a guy she met off the street was her boyfriend. turns out he’s her classmate and despite his looks is actually kinda mean so they’re forced to act like a couple. (you can imagine the rest)

Warui Ko no Mikata


Love So Life


to all those people who love a good shoujo that’s really warm and cute, this is for you

it’s about a high school girl named shiharu and lives in an orphanage. since she grew up in that orphanage and learned to take care of other kids at a young age, the famous news reporter matsunaga asks her to help baby sit the twin babies his brother left behind before running away. then the story gets really cute when they start treating her like family and shiharu starts falling for him (it’s been 33 chapters and nothing has really happened yet. noo!!)

if you love an adorable shoujo with really really really cute babies, read this! it’s one of my top five favorites


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
