Currently Reading

Currently Reading <3

Below is a short list of manga that I currently read. I have pretty high expectations of the manga that I read on a normal basis but most of them are ones that I’ve already mentioned before haha XD. 

1. The Gamer

from manga-tr
Right now it's kind of going downhill but I used to love this manga so much. It's getting slightly Bleach, Naurto-esque where everything is probably going to turn into arcs. I kind of wished the manhwa artist would have taken a different turn :/ Once the battle thing is back to the main character maybe I'll like this one again. 

Genre: Webtoon, Fictional World, Superpower, Action

2. Horimiya

from Bato.to 

Probably one of the my all time favorites. hehe I'm pretty proud that I actually participated in the translations some 20 chapters ago ^_^ It's such a cute and easy read that is actually quite funny as well. I think it's becoming for of a slice of life right now rather than actually having a plot but I like it quite a lot so it's ok haha. When I went to Japan I bought all of the volumes (it took me forever to find them but I was so happy that I did) 

Genre: SHOUJO, Slice of life


3. Last Game 

from mangareader
To be honest the plot at first seemed kinda....how to put it...idiotic. But despite the fact that the manga isn't exactly "realistic" its soo cutteee. Basically the guy (on the left) likes a (really, extremely) thick-headed girl. I would recommend reading chapter 1-10 and then skipping to like 30 if you're like me and want PROGRESS lol. The recent chapter that came out yesterday (April 1, I believe) WAS SO GOOD. THERE'S PROGRESSSSS! hahaha I'm really excited for this one as well. I also bought a volume of this when I was in Japan. 

Genre: SHOUJO ALL THE WAY lol 


4. Black Haze 

from mangafox


This is my recent favorite. I have no idea why being already super talented really interests me. The guy (above) is known as the famous Black Magician who's basically one of the strongest magicians in this manhwa world. This is his awakened form though and when he's his normal self, he's this scrawny student. He attends this magician school undercover for this mission (and this get really chaotic lol). I love that fact that he ends up beating up all the upperclassmen hahaah. 

Genre: Webtoon, Action, Fictional World, Superpower 


Have an awesome 3-day weekend (Good Friday~)

Iwangimyeon Dahong Manhwa

Iwangimyeon Dahong Manhwa

Lee Sang-eun
From 2.p.mpchdn (http://2.p.mpcdn.net/26205/451490/1.jpg)
  • Although it only just started releasing chapters last March and so far only one English translated chapter, I can already feel like this is going to be a great manga
    • It's art is nothing to complain about (yet..)
    • And it's storyline is so far keeping me very interested and wondering what's going to happen next. 
  • Storyline: About a girl, Da-Hong, who is willing to become a maid because of her gratefulness to her "mother" and happened to meet a guy, Woo-jin, who actually lives in the house she's going to be working in... 

Hopefully, this manhwa turns out well ^_^ and tell me what you think of this manhwa from this first chapter!

Random K-Drama

Random K-Drama Review :P

I'm asian ethically myself, and even though the culture, the language, the history-almost everything- is quite different from one country to the other. I think it makes some sort of sense to clump Japanese, Korean, and Chinese music/drama/movies together, just because they are all near to each other REGIONALLY. I know we all have different cultures XD but you'll find Korean K-pop and K-drama in China and Japan and Japanese comics in China and so on.

So without further ado, I'm going to introduce my first recommendation for Korean Drama:

Sly and Single Again / Cunning Single Lady / 앙큼한 돌싱녀 


From wiki.d-addicts

Cast: 

Lee Min Jung as Na Ae Ra 
Joo Sang Wook as Cha Jung Woo 

Notable Others: 
INFINITE's L as CEO Cha's secretary 

About:

Na Ae Ra divorced from Cha Jung Woo because they were bankrupt because Jung Woo wanted to start up his own business and years later Jung Woo finally succeeds and becomes rich. Na Ae Ra decides to take revenge for not giving her any credit by working in his company............ (not to mention this enormous love square (I made that up it's not a word and idk how it would possibly make sense but it means that one person is loved/liked by two people)  

Review 9/10 

  • First Impressions: tbh it was: a stupid drama aimed at older women but I judged this drama too early, and I should have given it a little more time because the drama was only just getting ready the first four episodes 
  • BUT
    • I started to watch it again at episode 4 all the way till the most recent one, only to find myself drenched in tears every single episode. This drama really touches my heart, even though I'm still a wimpy kid in high school, I felt the sadness and happiness Na Ae Ra and Cha Jung Woo felt. Although I'm usually the first one tearing up in any kind of sad movie, this made me brawl. I cried so much XD. 
    • Not to mention that the main actors are also doing a great job in acting and the screenwriters did a even better job of making the drama feel realistic as it possibly could be given the weird situation. (Trying really hard not to spoil anything :P) 

Welp, I hope you all will watch and enjoy this drama, I personally really enjoyed it being one of the most emotional dramas I've ever watched.

Zettai Heiwa Daisakusen

Zettai Heiwa Daisakusen

Ogura Akane

[Completed]
From: myanimelist


Art:
  • To be extremely fair, it's not bad BUT: 
    • Dresses loook REALLY weird sometimes it looks like tights on an entire body
    • Hair color = race  confuses me a little.. but I guess it's fair play but I think clothing (they have scarfs over them kind of like Hijabs though)
  • The art didn't bother me too much so it's a 7.5/10
Story:
  • The story is its strongest point: A cute & funny story of a princess and prince who were forced to get married to calm the war between their two countries. 
  • Unlike most of these types of stories, there is PROCESSION something that almost NEVER happens in these types of stories and it isn't too speed up nor too slow 
  • Although the plot is great, I really dislike the fact that they introduce the story multiple times after the story begins, it isn't really necessary
  • Overall Score: 8/10

I hope everyone will enjoy this manga, I quite liked it. 
Was in Tokyo the last week :D so there wasn't anything new sorryies XD

Samurai High School

Samurai High School 

Kashiwaba Hiro 



Art:
  • Good arts although there was some character are like...... >.< 
Story:
  • Wouldn't really consider this shojo, because there's absolutely, okay there was some but that's not the focus
  • Gender bender story of a pair of twins (girl and guy) who go to a school where only guys can be samurai and girls have to do all the home economics 
Not the most awesome manga I've read, but I enjoyed quite a lot and it was interesting because the plot was actually something you could learn from (not like other shojoy mangas)
