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

anyone who likes shoujos with a historical twist should definitely read this!

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!

Bara to Juudan - Chapter 1 - 35

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 😉


Akuma to Duet


another beautiful shoujo manga with romance and a supernatural twist

it’s about a girl named Mel who has been persecuted all her life for being a witch since she can tame demons. one day, she visits prince claude and he asks her to marry him but prince claude is actually not what he says he is.

the art is gorgeous and the characters are all hilarious so i definitely recommend this!


Hakamori Majo Bianca


this is one hell of a good manga. it’s pretty recent but im absolutely in love with the story. and if anyone reads this post and wants to help me understand what the uncle says at the end of chapter three then please comment because it’s really confusing me

so the story follows a witch named bianca who, unlike the other witches, still looks like the traditional scary witch (i think she looks good anyway) instead of cute like the other witches but she has strong magical powers and is in charge of watching over an important graveyard. there, she talks to her uncle, the legendary magician girrick. it follows her life and how she finds love.

the art is great, everything is absolutely adorable, and you’ll love bianca and her uncle so i would recommend this to basically anyone and everyone


Ghost Hunt


i’ve never been a person who read/watched horror stuff. the only sort of horror thing im willing to watch is ghost hunt because even though it sometimes scares me the hell out of me, it’s great. 

it’s about a girl named mai who was telling ghost stories with her friends after school one day and meets kazuya shibuya. the next day, she accidently bumps into a camera he has set up in the school’s abandoned building and, instead of paying for the camera, has to help him exorcise the building. along the way, she meets a monk, a shinto priestess, a woman who can speak with the dead, and a priest and helps to solve cases.

personally, i like the anime much better than the manga but i definitely would recommend both for anyone who likes shoujo or mystery stuff. the art is good, the story is amazing, and the characters are all just awesome! there are some creepy moments but, trust me, if i can survive it and still fall in love with the story then that means ghost hunt is amazing 😉


Teki wa Ousama


this is new shoujo that just came out today that is pretty good far! 

it starts off as your typical shoujo with the heroine, nobara, entering the school in order to find the prince she met with a kid. once she meets him, his attitude and his reaction to her are nothing like what she expected.

it sounds pretty typical but it’s by Ishihara Keiko so you know that the art is gorgeous and that there will be some sort of amazing twists coming up soon so all shoujo lovers should definitely check this out!


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!


Yashio to Mikumo


this is a cute shoujo manga that i stumbled on a few months ago that is pretty interesting

it’s about two cats in a cat society. mikumo is this adorable and reckless cat who is rescued from a car accident by yashio who is a debt collector and he basically makes sure that when a cat loses one of its nine lives, their name gets changed (you’ll get it once you read it….). eventually mikumo starts to work together and the one of the most adorable cat/debt collector duos is formed.

it’s funny, the art is cute, and you’ll love all the characters especially mikumo


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


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)


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
