Very! Very! Sweet

Jul 27, 2011

Story Very! Very! Sweet is about a young woman with a crush on her sister's boyfriend. Knowing they will never be together, she still doesn't feel like she'll find love. There's a boy that has a crush on her, but she doesn't return his feelings. So, the other side of the story (at least at start) is about a rebellious boy from Japan (the majority of the story takes place in South Korea) that discovers that he has ancestry ties to Korea, and his grandfather fears that he has become too influenced by Japanese culture. This boy (Tsuyoshi) is then sent to South Korea, with his grandfather hoping that he'll get... See full review

Tokimeki Gakuen Oujigumi

Jul 27, 2011

Alright, so this manga was made by Aya Nakahara, the mangaka possibly best known for Love★Com. In a similar vein to Love★Com, this collection of short stories (to put it basically) is about high school romance, and it has similar humor. Story The story is made up of four stand alone stories about a high school 'prince', each being particularly popular among female students. One particular female student is focused on in each story, and romance blossoms (this is a shoujo, afterall). Each prince seems to be the stereotypical bishounen from the average reverse harem shoujo. You've got your... See full review

With the Light: Raising an Autistic Child

Dec 16, 2010

Before I begin the review there are some things to mention about this series. This series is complete, in a sense, as volume 15 is the final volume. It is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2011, in English. If you have seen the Englsh volumes of this manga, each English volume equals two of the Japanese volumes, so in America (and other countries that receive the English translation) volume seven is volume 13 and 14, and 15 is volume eight. Volume eight consists of four chapters of With The Light, two extra chapters that are pretty crude storyboards, but full chapters, nonetheless. It also includes... See full review

Beauty Pop

Dec 13, 2010

Story: Beauty Pop is the age old story of a high school which has an all male beauty club... that is popular school wide. Clearly a work of fiction, Beauty Pop covers a fairly interesting topic that is more fun than plausible. The story mostly revolves around the makeovers and competitions that the aforementioned beauty club (Called the Scissors Project, or SP) perform, at least in the early chapters. As it goes along you begin caring about the characters more, and while there is an obvious male lead, I found myself wondering who the female lead, Kiri Koshiba, might actually end up with. One thing I like... See full review
