Manga: From Far Away / Kanata Kara

25 May

coverI think this manga is underrated because everything is really good, but it’s not famous. It was one of the first fantasy manga to really fascinate me! Maybe at first the old fashion drawing was a bit of a turn off, but then I learnt to like it. I want to read more stories like this. Please, please, please read this manga ūüôā

Manga: Love Monster

17 May

112555Guess what? Yes! This is about tengus or, well, crow demons. But Love Monster¬†has many flaws, so I don’t really recommend it unless you are up for a stupid female lead and dumb humor all the time… Anyway, I know. I should review a different kind of story, so¬†next time I want to read¬†a school shojo manga. Any suggestions?

Manga: Crescent Moon

12 May

imagesI remember when I first read this manga. It was at the same time I wanted to read stories about tengus (Japanese demons) and I think I’m into it again. I’m even rereading another one about it and I’m waiting for Black Bird to finally be completed online (such a long wait for one of my favorites so far u.u). About this same topic, I’ve already review¬†Arashi no Ceres (aka Ceres: Celestial Lengend).

Anyway, I got the same feeling about¬†Crescent Moon¬†as the first time I read it: it is kind of original for some reason, but the romance is not really there. For the art, well… you better read the whole review. Overall, it has¬†an enjoyable plot line, but I was expecting more of it.

Hello, guys! Today I’m bringing you a review about a manga I started to read a few years back, but because it wasn’t complete, I couldn’t finish it at the time. When I realized it had been finished, I rushed to read it and here it is my review on Barajou no Kiss or Kiss of Rose Princess. I’ve been pretty hooked by it for the last few days, but it failed me in the end. Keep reading to know more!

Anime: Tokyo Mew Mew

I’m not a fan of mahou shojo (magical girl anime), but my sister is. Somehow, I ended up watching all the episodes with her and even reading the manga when she bought it. Yep, it was a surprise for me to like Tokyo Mew Mew. And I know it’s not probably the best anime of this genre. I’m sure there are ones that are far better, but still it totally hooked me on, probably because I like the unrequited love story and the aliens characters.

Book: The Neverending Story

20 Dec

200px-TheNeverendingStory1997Edition

Who doesn’t know¬†The Neverending Story? It’s one of the best well-known fantasy books of all times, but most people may have heard of it for its multiple movie adaptations, which are crap, honestly (although I used to watch one of them quite a lot. Don’t judge me. I was little and there was a dog-like dragon, a talking tree an a giant baby rock. Who can resists at age 8?). Anyway, I’m very glad I laid my hands on it a few years ago, when I was a teenager. I could relate to Bastian and this book kinda taught me a few things which I’ve noticed now. I have to read it again soon. This is a book I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend to those who really like a good fantasy story and a good lesson of self-improvement.

Anime: Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel of Monsters

18 Dec

The story about how I started to watch¬†Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel of Monsters¬†is the same one as in¬†Medabots. When I was a teenager, I watched it because there was nothing else on TV or that was what I told to myself because I knew deep down I liked it. So for the past two weeks, I’ve been watching the entire series out of curiosity and melancholy and finally finished them yesterday. It turned out it is one of my favorites now. If my teenage self could see me now… ūüėÄ Have anyone seen the sequels? Are they good? Since the original characters are not there, I don’t know if I should see them or not. But I’ll read the manga for sure. Come on! Keep reading the review and leave some comments!
