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!


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. 😦

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.


Love Sick


i’ve just returned from my social hibernation but now i’ve got a ton of great mangas that I want to share and so i’ll start with a great one that i just read the updated chapter of.

it’s about a girl named Shiki who came to a prestigious school all for the sake of getting revenge for her father’s death. She thinks that the principal of the school killed her dad so she disguises herself as a boy and starts her plan for revenge by asking the four students with the most influence in the school for help who all used to know her dad and have secrets of their own.

it’s amazing, the art is beautiful, the plot keeps you on edge after every chapter, there’s a lot of action, and you’ll fall in love with all of the characters so definitely check this out!


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!


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!


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
