CONTEST WINNER4 notes
A few months ago I tried watching Hunter X Hunter again to get a glimpse of Killua. The princely image he once had when I was little was a bit distorted, I guess I got used to the modern day type of animation. But today (tonight actually) I had a chance to watch the 2011 version of the hit anime series, and as far as I remember, this is exactly how the original looked like inside in mind. I thought it didn’t have much difference with the 1999 version, until I played the same 1999 scene I watched last time. And guess what, I had the same face I once had when I saw the original months ago. The difference was huge. O.O
Here’s the 2011 remake:
It’s amazing how retouching an anime can make it look more incredible than it already is. It’s feels both nostalgic and refreshing. At least now they can replay the same series to the younger generation.
I can’t wait to see Killua! Argh, how I wish he got older. What are they, Peterpan’s? Yes, I’m still hoping for a season 2. :))
Enjoy watching! :)3 notes
When she was younger, ordinary girl Shinonome Mei was saved while singing her favorite song, “Mei’s Butler”. She vaguely remembers his face, and only his pendant is engraved in her mind. When her parents suddenly met a tragic accident, a guy with the same pendant appears before her, claiming to be Mei’s butler. Her life flipped after she learned that from being a noodle shop owner’s daughter, she is actually the only heiress of the powerful Hongo group’s assets. Will Mei be able to handle the glamorous yet cruel fate that comes with being a Hongo?
Shinonome Mei decided to attend the prestigious ladies school ”St. Lucia Girls’ Academy” together with her S-Class Butler—Shibata Rihito, while his bratty younger brother and Mei’s childhood friend, Shibata Kento, decided to also serve the newborn princess. But unknowingly to Kento, only certified butlers can enter the school. Kento was therefore thrown out to the butler’s school beside the academy. He vows to graduate immediately to one day take his older brother’s place. Which brother will be able to stay beside Mei?
I love this manga. I like how deep the plot is and how everything seems to flow naturally. The art is beautiful and the storyline’s pretty interesting, it gets deeper and more intense in every chapter. I like how the character’s grow and how the situation can affect their attitudes without making it look forced. Although I’m still confused about Rihito’s feeling, but since they’re making it look forced, it somehow complimented him. But I do hope to see a deeper development. :)
Every character is unique in their own way, yet their not completely stereotyped. They respond according to their own beliefs but still maintain human-like attitudes. I mean, in some mangas the characters response unbelievably, here it feels like the characters are more honest and can easily show their strengths and weaknesses without losing their unique personalities.
Izumi, the almost perfect honor student and fencing enthusiast. Elegant, graceful, confident and beautiful, she’s one of the characters you’ll get to like once you’ve known her more. I’ve seen her breakdown and stand up again. I’ve seen her lose herself then go back to her senses. She’s a good person, the situation just got her tangled up a bit, but her true nature was able to shine through.
Mei-chan is also a developing character along with Kento, they’re both young and naive, yet the world opening before them, forcing them to grow up faster. Still in the manga, you can feel their smooth character development. Truthfully, I like Kento more than Rihito. Maybe it’s because he’s about the same age as Mei or maybe Kento is just not getting enough love. I mean he practically gave up everything for Mei but the spoiled brat in him is still no good at words, thus with Mei’s naivety and slowness partnered with Kento’s childish acts and indirect way of showing his feelings, it’s hard for them to develop, if not further then faster.
The manga’s still ongoing, and I heard there’s a live action drama version of this series. I haven’t watched it and I’m still chapters behind from the manga, since only half were scanned and translated. (But hey, I’m thankful for the current scans. They worked hard to scan and translate this. :D) But judging from what I’ve read, the story’s pretty powerful and has loads of potential to develop further. It just hurts to see another Yul (Goong) and Ji Hoo (Boys Over Flowers) being born in Kento’s presence. But oh well, it’s my fault for always liking the second male lead. -.-6 notes
Hwang Mi Rang knows that’s she’s cute and beautiful but her childhood friend Won doesn’t even know how hot he is, especially since Mi Rang think his face is funny. The day before Mi Rang transfers to Won’s school, she decided to confess to him by giving him a kiss or two. Problem is, someone from their school saw them, so the day Mi Rang transferred she becomes the school’s public enemy number one, thanks to the cult of Won-nians who fell entirely for the boy’s looks. But Won doesn’t even know any of this. Will Mi Rang survive high school when the whole school is also in love with her dearest Won?
The story’s cute and funny, sometimes a bit random but it’s interesting. Both Mi Rang and Won are really strong characters, physically and probably mentally too. Although they can be down sometimes, they can both pick themselves back up again. Won is just a little too dense though. Funny how the Manhwa emphasizes on Won and Mi Rang’s looks, but both leads don’t even care about that. Won thinks his face is weird, and Mi Rang’s ideal type is a comedian with small eyes and a high hairline with little hair. XD
It’s an entertaining read, I laughed a lot. But I don’t recommend this to someone with little to no free time. The ending is a bit odd. XD It almost seems like the author was just playing around and wrote and draw anything she thought of. XD But somehow I felt like she’s having fun doing so. XD I mean, she did say that this was originally made just for the fun of it. :) So if you’re just looking for a random read, here’s one for you.
PS. This is disturbing me is that I can’t help but think that this is what the characters look like:
Park Gyuri (KARA) as Hwang Mi Rang
- I mean, come on, she’s strong willed and she knows she’s beautiful too. XD She even admits it, and I love her for that. XD
Kim Jae Joong as Won
-Just look at how they describe the perfect Won. XD
Haha, it’s actually more fun to read when I think of them. XD I mean, Jae Joong is hot. XD And I like Gyuri unni~ So Pretty. ♥5 notes
Hatsune only wants to have a girl friend. Growing up in a male dominated family and with bad habit of saying harsh words, not one would dare to be her friend. Despite being kindhearted, Hatsune says the exact opposite of what she really feels; and joining an awesome club after being kicked out of all the other clubs was one of them. Unfortunately, her last option is the Maiden’s Club, where the only know member is the president, Kirie. Kirie who is a total opposite of Hatsune, lived most of his life surrounded by his sisters and has a tendency to give makeovers to any girl that gets near him. Rumored to be gay, could Hatsune’s first ever friend really be queer?
This manga is so cute! I love Kirie~♥ He is so adorable! I find it sweet every time she hugs him, since she thinks he’s gay. XD Kinda reminds me of Lee Min Ho and Song Ye Jin’s drama, Personal Preference. :))
Haha. That’s exactly how they look like sometimes. XD Well, at least the overall feeling of the picture is sort of the same. XD The manga only has 4 chapters, but it’s worth reading. :)) The plot is simple and direct to the point, yet it’s still very entertaining. Even if sometimes the couple’s disorder, especially Hatsune’s, can be a bit extreme. XD But oh well, this is a shoujo manga. I totally recommend this. :) It’s a good read. :)6 notes
The Prince fell into a deep sleep a day before his coronation. For four years, princesses from different lands came to him and tried to break the curse. Unfortunately no one was able to break it. After several attempts, Salya, a witch, came to test her luck. But unlike the others who asked for the prince’s hand, she asked for the king’s Sapphire of Illusions as reward. As she goes inside the prince’s dream to wake him up, will Salya break the curse? Or will he stay with him inside his own dreamworld?
For a one-shot manga, this felt complete. It wasn’t dragging and I’m fine without adding more chapters to it. And that’s a good thing. Everything was placed in one chapter but it wasn’t too stuffy. The story’s development moved in a normal rollercoaster-like pace. The plot was concise and the story’s pretty good. (SPOILER WARNING) It’s refreshing to see a witch turning into a princess. :)
REIMEI NO ARCANA
The day she becomes the second prince’s of Belquat’s consort, Princess Nakaba already became the enemy’s possession. To maintain the peace within Belquat and Senan, the two royalties had to be married. With only Loki, a sub-person (half human, half animal) beside her, they entered the palace. Full of anger and hate, she vowed to one day kill the Prince Caesar. But one day she had a vision that the Prince would die in a battle, will Nakaba let him die? Or will her heart change and eventually save him?
Nakaba is the only child of the deceased princess of Senan who is said to have eloped with a common man. Being a commoner’s child, Nakaba inherited her father’s red hair, which is said to despicable as royalties should have black hair. She was hated and discriminated, the princess had to live inside a dusty room with only one window, a bed and a chair. And throughout her life all she had was Loki, a sub-person who has vowed to protect her. Everything would have been easier to cope up with, until she became a sacrificial goat to their enemy. Even if her husband tries to kill her, the fearless princess didn’t blink an eye and told him that she knew she will eventually be killed, the only difference was the place she will die. Althugh being a princess with red hair might have made her life miserable, but also inheriting a mystical power called “Time’s Arcana” might be the real cause her death.
I hardly read dramas, tragedies and even anything that has to do with blood. But this manga is quite captivating. You’ll read one chapter, then you’ll want to read more. I’ve been reading quite a few manga’s about royalties, and I’ve taken a liking to their storylines. I remember the first scene when Nakaba tried to stop Caesar from joining the tournament, it reminded me a bit of Prince Henry II when his wife tried to stop him because of her vision. From then on, I got really interested.
The drawings in this one is really good too. Loki is so handsome~! Although Prince Caesar is slowly becoming kinder, I’m not sure if I can completely forgive his bad attitude during the first chapter. It’s just unfair when both guys suddenly becomes hotter after a few chapters. *spoiler* But I’m not very fond of the idea that Nakaba had to cut her hair uber short. Oh well, she’s still pretty. *spoiler ends* This manga is still ongoing, so I’m hoping to see more developments.
Reimei no Arcana has more action and develops faster than Akagami no Shirayuki Hime. Funny thing is Shirayuki is chased because of her precious red hair, here it seems like Nakaba could be exiled anytime because of red hair. The manga also has a darker aura and the scenes are more intense. But it’s really good. I totally recommend this one.6 notes
Shirayuki (Snow White) was born with hair as red as an apple. Prince Raji, who has taken an interest in her, orders her to become his concubine. Uninterested with the idea, Shirayuki cuts her hair and runs off to the woods. She then meets a slightly wounded Zen. Being a pharmacist, she tried curing Zen’s wounds after gaining his trust. Meanwhile, Prince Raji sends them some poisonous apples and a henchman to retrieve Shirayuki. But instead of poisoning Shirayuki, Zen becames the victim. Will Shirayuki be able to save Zen? Or will Zen be the one to save her and be her own prince charming?
This was a refreshing read. After all the cutesy characters and cliché plots (not that I’m complaining, I actually like those types of manga), this suddenly became something fresh and new to me. Zen and Shirayuki’s relationship is just so peaceful. Zen is not the usual arrogant prince, while Shirayuki is not the cutesy and innocent type. They’re both intelligent and sensible. Their respect for each other could compete for the men and women during Maria Clara’s era (or ancient era, if that would sound better) , but their strength and toughness would probably make them good video game characters. I don’t know, they actually reminded me of Aveyond, an RPG I used to play.
I haven’t finished reading this. The manga is still ongoing, and I’m not yet at the peak of their relationship, so I can’t really judge it. But so far, so good. I remember my friend used to tell me stories that were based on royalties during the 18th century, and I’ve always loved the books she’d tell me about. Too bad I never got to borrow those books from her. So I guess that’s why I’m rather fond of this manga. I love the clothes they’re wearing~!
Also while reading, I thought whether bad boys really are worth it. XD I mean, Zen is a perfect prince. While Shirayuki’s smart, I like how she doesn’t hide things from Zen yet she’s not clingy either. She’s independent and brave. I like those types of heroines. Actually everyone here is quite intelligent, they act and react like how normal human beings would. But they never get boring. I guess that has something to do with the era they’re in, and maybe it’s because it’s easier to relate to their emotions. More than the character’s personal issues, this is more of an “us against the world” kind of love line. Instead of barking at each other, they’re fighting against their own fates to stay together. I also think they’re the perfect example of “birds of the same feather flock together,” Zen and Shirayuki does have a lot of things in common. I like how this manga feels so polished with an air of elegance.
After saying all that, I suddenly remembered Prince William and Kate Middleton. XD
More than Snow White, this could also be a mix of Cinderella with a bit of Romeo and Juliette. Although with the title being “Red Haired Princess Snow White,” I’m still thinking that maybe Shirayuki is a princess. Argh, I can’t say more than this. T_T I want to finish the whole manga now.

Heart no kuni no Alice
Imagine if Alice was a teenager kidnapped down the rabbit hole, things would have turned out differently. Unlike the original Alice, the Alice in the manga “Heart no Kune no Alice” is less gullible and a bit more dark and cynical.
As Alice tries to forget her miserable past, she dwells upon the time when she spent Sunday afternoons with her beloved sister. This then stirred up Peter the White Rabbit’s feelings for her, as Alice obsessed over the hour she spent with her sister, Peter slowly falls in love with her. As you can see, in Peter’s world, they have clocks inside them instead of hearts. So, the role holders (Peter’s one of them) represents hours while the rest of the citizens merely represents minutes and seconds. As Alice cherishes the hour that Peter probably represents, Peter was then attracted to her. And so is the rest of the citizen’s, as Alice is known to be a person who values time and life. And the latter part is what most of them lack. They know that they can easily be replaced if Julius, the guy in the clock tower where Alice is staying, just fixes their clocks. Although they know that they won’t be the same person anymore once their clocks are fixed, Alice slowly changed some of their opinions, and Boris Airay the Cheshire Cat is one of them.
She gradually meets new people, and the bottle that she needs to fill up to go back also starts to reach it’s brim. As time goes by, she begun to make more friends, but what will happen when everybody begins to adore Alice? Will she ever go back to her own world? Or will love make her decide to forever forget her past and start anew in Wonderland?
This manga is originally a game. A lot of people say that the game is better than the manga, but I can’t really say that since I’ve never played the game. :P The manga is a bit vague, I needed to read some explanations to really get it. :) My favorite character is BORIS AIRAY the CHESHIRE CAT, which ironically, is not really my favorite character in the 1951 Disney Movie version. Seriously, Boris is hot. :)) The manga is also full of Eye-Candies, and there are different flavors to choose from. :)) Ace, the crazy knight. Blood, the Mad Hatter that resembles Alice’s Ex-Boyfriend. Tweedle Dee and Dum, the bloody twins. Julius, the serious clock repairer. Peter the white rabbit and stalker. And many more. The manga mostly concentrated on only one realistic love line, but in the game they said that you can choose your own ending, whether you want Alice to go home or stay with your choice of guy. Lucky girl, everyone’s hot. And well, brutal and violent. (Did I say lucky? Should I take that back? Kidding.)
In the game, I really want her to end up with Boris. But if this is reality, I would totally bring her back home. We can’t always live inside our imaginations right? We have to learn to face reality and handle it with faith. :) I would love to say “Turn our dreams into reality” but it just seems so inappropriate, if you know what I mean.
Oh BTW and I have a pet Boris, help me level up Boris Airay~!♥ :) Just click the picture below. :)
Sorry for updating just now. I’ll do my best to really finish this project. :)
The Sorcery Examination has just begun, aspiring professional witches and wizards have exactly six months to obtain the Crystal Pearl. But only one team could win. Will it be San (No.003), the girl who loves sweets and her partner Forte (No.0004), the boy who makes them? Or will it be Go (No.005), Rokka’s (No.006) guradian? Or maybe it’s Nanase(No.006) and Yakumo (No.007), the guy with a Kansai dialect. As the hunt begins, only one team wins. But what if the Crystal Pearl is actually inside a human girl named Nina? Another team vows to protect her against all the participants, partner’s Zero and Icchi. For six whole months they go wherever Nina is and protects her with their life. Who will win the contest?
The story also has an anime version and a sequel. :) It’s pretty good. It’s hard to decide who I wanted Nina to end up with. Icchi and Zero are both so
damn cute. :P Icchi has a prince in a white horse feel, while Zero has a spoiled brat feel. :P Ok, that didn’t sound good. But I like Zero the way he is. XD Especially after reading about their past. Well, the story is pretty anime like (duh. XD Must I really say that. :P), with different characters popping out of nowhere. It’s nice how even if the whole situation is absolutely unrealistic, the author was able to make it seem possible, if not then normal.
Although the reason why and how Nina powers is still vague. I suspect that it’s because of the Crystal Pearl inside her body, but who know maybe she is a witch. I should read the sequel. :P
One thing I like is how the author is able to express the situation in a serious yet light tone. The action scenes were fast-moving but weren’t too intense. It’s an easy read. She had successfully maintained her tone throughout the whole story. You can clearly see that she’s writing for a certain audience. Thus drawing a fine line to not give too much of anything. With the right amount of drama, action, romance and fantasy, she was able to make the story more fun and friendly.
As for the drawing, I had a feeling the author favored Icchi. XD (She admitted that Icchi is her favorite character.) Icchi is really handsome, Zero is very cute and cool. In the human world, Icchi looks like ‘the boy next door’ type or the ‘cute seatmate who’s also an honor student’ or your mom’s friend’s son. XD Zero is more like ‘my childhood friend who keeps on teasing me but I kind of like him’ type or ‘the guy from the other class who always cause a ruckus’. XD LOL, sorry for the long words. Nina is pretty lucky to have them by her side. Although about Nina, I wasn’t really fond of her hair at first, but I learned to live with it. I like her hair when it’s tied or when it’s short. :P I also LOVE San and Forte! THEY ARE SO CUTE! Forte looks like a prince and a princess. XD San looks like a doll, she has that lolita-feel. I also like PEARL! SO ADORABLE! RYU~
Oh! And I also find Eleven and Twelve’s love tests cute. XD Do you think it’s accurate? :)
(I know this is late, I forgot to publish it. D:)
Hanazono Karin is an orphan who has lost another precious friend, her cat Shi-chan. Now the only thing she has is her parent’s memento, a beautiful ring. While she feels like she’s all alone in this world, she meets a cute girl named Kujyou Himeka who is also an orphan. Moved by Himeka’s cheerful attitude, they both became friends as Karin decided that she’s not alone anymore. But destiny has other plans, it turns out that the boy who bad-mouthed her in front of Shi-chan’s grave is Himeka’s cousin, Kyoujo Kazune!
Strange things has been happening to her since the day she met them. First her ring started glowing, then this below average girl is now rapidly excelling in school. And she has even called out a storm! She seeks the Kyujyou cousins for help, and through them she finally got an absurd explanation: Karin can actually turn into a goddess!
Really, how can someone draw such cute characters and have an adorable storyline? It’s like killing two birds with one stone! Truth is, I wasn’t fond of Karin during the first few chapters, I also disliked some of the characters facial expressions when they’re drawn in a different way.
I’m taking about this:
Turning into this:
I was uncomfortable with it at first but as I’ve grown to love them. Same with Karin, I was getting attached to her. I think she slowly changed for the better, she became more mature and a lot more cuter.
Karin and Kazune are now part of my top 3 favorite couples! Alongside Natsume & Mikan; and Syaoran & Sakura. They are so adorable together! The story’s twist was pretty amazing, I can’t believe this was supposed to be a one-shot that continued due to popular demand. XD
It’s a really cute story! And it’s not boring at all. It’s funny and it makes you think and anticipate what’s going to happen next. During the climax, I could really feel the story’s intensity as it was getting closer and closer to the truth. I couldn’t sleep because I wanted to finish this in one sitting! XD Since there’s an anime version of this, I’m also thinking of watching that. :))
Btw, I’m currently reading the sequel, but I’m not done yet. :) I like the sequel, it gives off that husband and wife feeling from Kazune and Karin. :P SUZUNE!8 notes
Born with an absolute sense of taste, Najika Kazami goes to Seika Academy to fulfill her late parent’s dream and to find her “Flan Prince.” This talented young chef promised her “Flan Prince” that she will make him the most delicious dessert in the world as a thank you gift for saving her life when they were young. But who is her “Flan Prince?” Is it Sora, the student body president? Or his brother Daichi? Or is it the equally talented young chef Seiya Mizuno? Join Najika’s adventure as she experience love, pain and all the different tastes of life, in and out of the kitchen! :)
For character development and the character’s growth, Nagika’s character hardly changed. But that doesn’t mean that her character was flat. Her character was just consistent. Her energy all through out the manga is the same from start till the end. I could say that she grew stronger, but she was already strong before. I think Akane and Daichi had the biggest character growth. Daichi changed a lot thanks to Nagika, same with Akane. Nagika is pretty much the eye of the storm. She’s more of an instrument to everyone’s life, someone that came to change them.
Sora’s death was just too sad. I knew it was going to happen (I read the summary :P) so I wasn’t surprised, but I still cried. Especially after Nagika saw him during the competition, I cried so much. But I think that this is an important event for the plot to fully develop. After that Daichi changed and became mature. But I still wish the author used another method for that. It was too sad, too heartbreaking. But at least he can live on through Najika’s dream.
When Nagika wasn’t able to go to the competition, I was a bit glad. I’m afraid she wouldn’t win with her current skills. Although she is on par with Mizuno’s skills, she still lacks training, thus if Nagika had one more year to train, she can absolutely do better. Plus, if she went there and won, she wouldn’t be able to know who the Flan Prince was. :P
The manga as whole is better than it’s parts, but when we look at paintings and pictures don’t we appreciate them as a whole? Rainbows for example are just the colors red, orange blah blah blah but as a whole rainbows look amazing. So I think the author did a great job, her story was consistent and focused mainly on Nagika, her flan prince and cooking. There might be questionable aspects, but as whole, the story was able to meet ends.
I like this manga, it reminds me of Baker King. I don’t really like sad dramatic mangas, but I couldn’t stop reading. I saw how much the characters, especially Najika, went through but in the end it’s all good. They became stronger and better people, and they wouldn’t be able to smile like that if they had never experience those things. I really recommend reading this. :)
I also like how they also put the recipes Najika and the other make in the story! Here’s a sample page. :)

Minami’s mother and Otome’s father got married 5 years ago. Siblings with a 3 day age gap, Otome and Minami Hasaki now shares a room due to their grandmother moving in because of her recent surgery. Although they decided to divide the room with a sheet of cloth, Otome often rolls out from her bed to Minami’s side, resulting to Minami seeing things he shouldn’t. Everything would have been fine if only they were blood-related, but what if their feeling become more than just sisterly/brotherly love? Will the Hasaki siblings become siblings forever? Or will they enter a new chapter?
I think it’s a cute story. I’ve always wanted to both read and write something like this. Really, if I had a hot stepbrother, that would be more convenient right? Kidding. :) I really love Haruka Fukushima sama’s works. :) The drawings are very good too! :) Although even until the end, I still don’t know why it’s called Cherry Juice. XD4 notes
Eisuke is living with middle school student Rui, while Rui’s childhood friend Tarou is living next door, but the problem is Eisuke is an apprentice teacher at their school! What will happen if someone finds out? Better tell this to Haru-chan! But who is Haru-chan anyway?
(WARNING: Spoilers ahead)
Ok. I hate this. No not the story, I hate myself for reading the last chapter first. I didn’t know that it was the last chapter, all I know is that I was confused while reading. Argh. But I still read it from the start till the end, it’s a good story. I realized a lot of things. Since I was rooting for TarouXRui, because they have been friends since they were little, plus it is possible for Rui to really like Tarou. I actually didn’t like Eisuke to be with her. I hate how his timing is right at when Rui is really going to fall in love with Tarou. I thought that the author should do something to make up for Eisuke’s lack of presence. And she did, since Eisuke is Haru-chan, that created a huge difference. At that point, I finally accepted Eisuke and Rui’s relationship.
Haruka Fukushima’s mangas are really entertaining. I’m looking forward to reading more of her works. :)3 notes
“Romeo and Juliet”
When Shuutoku’s AAA, Ogata Aoi, is inlove with Akutoku’s CCC, Kuroda Hayato, everyone seems to against it. The president of the elite school and the gang leader of the delinquent school is dating? It’s like Romeo and Juliet middle school-modern version. XD
The story seems to have some questionable situations but since the they focused on mostly one side of the story (Aoi’s point of view), it looks like Hayato’s life is another story. It’s a cute love story about first loves. I like how Hayato’s character is cool and not cheesy at all. The way Aoi changes when he met Hayoto may seem like the guy’s being a bad influence to her, but somehow it helped changed the worsening school atmosphere. It really felt like two kingdoms are coming together as one.
Aoi maybe holding on to her past feelings, and the past Hayato, but she may have not realize that her present feelings for the present Hayato are stronger now. I think she does like him a lot, accepting his flaws and all. As they say, love is blind.
The plot was good, concrete and focused. The ending was adorable. This manga made me want to read the mangaka’s other works. :)1 note
