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!

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 😉


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!


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!


Dear Brother!


this is a great josei manga that’s got a lot of cute sibling stuff 🙂

it’s about a 23 year old office lady named Komatsu Momo who was separated from her three brothers fifteen years ago. now she’s planning to get married soon and so she contacts her brothers and soon everything gets turned upside down.

it’s by Enjouji Maki so the art is good, there’s a lot of humor, and you’ll grow to love all the characters!

josei readers will love this!

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
