I haven't spoken to you in a good while. I dislike how the site doesn't show your friend activity, anymore. I finally got to finishing Glass Mask after a long hiatus with it. I greatly enjoyed it, the entire thing, though the final episode left a little to be desired. As I said, it goes up to the two lead female characters entering the valley of plums with the hopes of getting the coveted role. I'm not sure what else you would like to know about it, given that you may have already watched it by this time.
As for our conversation about Kitchen Princess, I read volume 5, I think, or six. The twist involving that one boy was pretty unexpected on my part. I haven't seen that happen in a shojo manga, and it surprised mea s it seems like it's directed at younger audiences. The twist made me like it more, though I haven't gotten around to buying later volumes of it (with other things to buy, and all).
So, how've you been? Seen or read anything you liked a lot?
I see that you read Kitchen Princess, and liked it. This surprises me, but I like it, as well. XD I've only gotten to volume 4, though. It's not one of my very favorites, but I do enjoy some of the subject matter, and the cooking stuff.
If you haven't already, I suggest reading Wild Damon (also known as Wild @ Heart), because it was written by the same mangaka. It is quite sweet and enjoyable, too, and only three volumes.
As for Glass mask, I've been taking it slow... I only have about ten episodes left, but I'm on the wolf girl, Jane, story line, and I don't love it. Oh, well. Hopefully I can finish the series soon, as I loved it majorly up to that point. (spoilers for where it ends, in case you don't want to know, every detail) I do know that it goes into the valley of plums, or whatever, though I believe it never says who Chigusa chooses to take the role of Scarlet Angel. It's like a choose your own adventure conclusion, I guess (from what I've seen people reveal, when I didn't want them to).
Well, my cousin said she wanted to watch Working!! with me, so I stopped watching until she ever actually wants to watch it. XD
I agree about the characters. I wish they delved more into some of the personalities, like the puppet girl, and the upperclassmen, as I found them very amusing. I didn't love Sora the way I hoped to, which was about the major problem I had with the series in comparison to Aria. I agree about the cats. I love Aria and Co., but the fact that Mikke, Kuma, and such spoke was great for the viewer. I also cracked up whenever Buchi (the American cat) would speak. Loved how he sounded.
So far in Glass Mask, it's up to Maya playing the part of Beth from Little Women (I'm still on ep. 7). Loved that scene. XD The series has made me cry already, and I get surprised at points (as to how obsessed/awesome at acting Maya is). So far, it's good. The writing and plot are simple, like what I have read of the manga, but it is still really gripping, for me, anyway. I've only read 35 pages of the first volume, but I think I'll watch the anime before reading, anymore. I liked the chills and feelings of surprise that I get from watching things play out. The only real difference I noted from the first episode and what I've read, is that the nasty girl that had Maya do her work for her had short hair. Otherwise it was pretty true to the manga. There's 51 eps, so it may be a while before I get through it.
I see that you finished Sketchbook. I enjoyed it pretty well. It was less emotional for me than Aria, but I did find it enjoyable. I hope you enjoyed it well, enough. I have since moved on to Glass Mask (2005). I read a chapter of it in manga form after seeing that you read it/liked it. And then I forgot I had the anime marked as want to watch. I'm seven episodes in, and... I really love it.
Inami... I already don't love her. I'm afraid if she gets any worse.
I like Sketchbook so far. It puts a smile on my face at several moments. More whacked out characters than Aria, though. Who knows if you'll like it, though.
