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!
i was watching kuroko no basket and having a blast when i realized that i didn’t even post anything about the new spring animes. i’m sorry for that. so here it is:
of course kuroko no basket

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia (i’d give this a 3/5. if you’re into more shounen stuff then try this)
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
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:
Bara to Dangan
Hana ni Arashi
i’ve read few manhwas but this was my favorite. there’s an interesting plot, amazing art, and romance.
it’s about a girl named yoon ai who does really well in school but is actually poor since her mom died and her dad left town, leaving them with a lot of debt. one day, she hears a rumor that at the abandoned amusement park there’s a magician who lives there and is supposedly crazy. soon, she runs into the magician herself and everything about her life starts to turn around.
if i could be as cool as that magician, i could die happy ;). check this out if you want a nice romance and a bit of mystery in your day
Another great shoujo but it’s also got a nice vampire twist.
it’s about this girl Kana who came to her famous school on a sports scholarship but got injured. one day she saves girl from getting run over in the street and gets hurt herself. then her childhood friend appears, bites her throat and turns her into his servant. turns out he’s a vampire (and very hot 😉 ) and he’s participating in a game that is he can find and collect all the other stigmas (these weird tattoo things) in the world, he’ll become the ultimate being.
there’s a lot of romance, kind of weird lines here and there, but the art is absolutely gorgeous and all the guys are really hot so anyone who wants a really good shoujo, read this
for all you shounen and action lovers out there but there’s also a little bit of romance for the shoujo lovers out there, here is a really great manga with a lot of fighting and really cute characters
the story is about this society that is really corrupt, there’s mafia everywhere and the government is really weak. but there’s an organization that’s merciless and famous for their agents who kill without hesitation, the Last Enforcement Organization (aka Red Raven). then there’s the daughter of a mafia boss but she wants to turn her group into a good group and she meets this weird guy (hey, i thought he was cute 😉 ) and after a few things happen he turns out to be a Red Raven agent.
lots of action and what i really want to call romance but definitely give this a try
sorry for not posting in so long but it’s just been hectic…
anyways, this is an amusing josei manga with a strong female character, a bit of supernatural power mixed in, and of course romance
fuyuki is a 17-year-old bishoujo who has esp abilities. when she gets transferred to the “special crime department 007” she gets paired up with the mysterious bishounen detective named kuze. together they start solving cases and it just shows their crazy personalities.
this is a very fun story and you’ll fall in love with all the characters. the art on the cover might seem a little hard to deal with but the art in the actual manga is pretty good so just try it
this is for the people who like action, gore, and shounen stories.
it’s about this girl named Tista Lone who by day is just a plain looking girl with good grades and not that many friends. But in actuality she’s Sister Militia, a notorious assassin with special eyes that can see a target whether it’s moving or not and kill with a single bullet. (how cool is that?) she’s an assassin working for the church to kill criminals and it just shows her day to day life a bit.
warning: very sad. i don’t want to spoil the story but it’s sad. the art is more graphic novel art than regular manga art.
i totally recommend this for those who want a good action read
this manga is a mix of shoujo and shounen but it’s really fun to read when you’re bored.
Hayaka was just a regular girl when her parents got divorced and now she and her mom have moved to anew town to make a fresh start. (it isn’t another story about ghosts in the countryside) To make things easier for her mom, she decides to go to an industrial high school. When she arrives she finds that the school is filled with delinquents who always get in fights and that there aren’t any other girls in the school. Then she becomes friends with the school’s strongest fighter and other colorful characters and after a lot of things happen she becomes the school gang leader of the school.
the art is nice, the story is cute and full of humor so if you want a few laughs then try this one
here’s another cute shoujo with a storyline that is pretty similar to wild ones but read this anyways
it’s about a girl named chizuru whose mom borrowed a hundred million yen then skipped town. just when she’s about get into trouble, kuze who’s the third heir to the umegaki gang shoulders the debt for her and in return she has to be his fiancee. and so she has to pretend in school, go through spartan training, and deal with all the other weirdos that she meets and it’s a really cute manga.
The art’s gorgeous, there are cute romantic moments, if you like shoujo mangas you’ll love this
the mangaka also wrote two other oneshots and they’re both adorable:
The Honeybee Earl and the Flower Dress
Moujuu wa Ori no Naka
