I’m so happy to be reading Skip Beat again! It’s been a couple of years since I stopped reading it, so I decided to start it again. Skip Beat is one of my favorite anime ever, so much so that I decided to read the manga. I’m so glad I did. My favorite thing by far, is the protagonist, Kyoko. She’s not your typical heroine and you can’t help but love her. I love that her motivation is revenge, and I also love how gutsy and passionate she is. I have a lot of things to say about Kyoko, but I’ll save that for a different review. Perhaps the one things I don’t like about this manga is the art style. To be precise, I don’t like the body proportions of the characters. They have ridiculously long legs, small faces, and borderline ridiculous long pointy chins. I appreciate how they were drawn in the anime a little more now. This won’t stop me from continuing reading the manga, it’s just too good!

Challenges met: A manga that features a female main character

Manga Reading Challenge 2018 – Weeks 8 & 9

Weeks 8 and 9 of Manga Hoarder’s Manga Reading Challenge 2018!

Super short reviews included:

2949900625111268258140082740678413698243520091778588417899413

Even though I read 8 volumes I was only able to complete 2 new challenges. I guess most of the manga I read is pretty similar.  I’ve completed 16 of the 52 challenges, that’s really not a lot. But I really want to concentrate on reading the manga I own, before going out to purchase new manga to complete the challenges.  Continue reading

[manga] Manga Reading Challenge 2018 – Week 6 & 7

Week 6 and 7 of Manga Hoarder’s Manga Reading Challenge!

You guys! I’m so close to being done with this series. I’m so excited, but also sad because I am loving this series so much.

These last two weeks I read 3 volumes of Kamisama- Kiss. I read volumes 19-21.

The thing about trying to complete a series while doing a challenge is that I can’t really complete any new challenges. Kamisama-kiss pretty much completes the same 6 challenges, volume after volume.

Anyway, as far the manga is concerned, I felt these weren’t the best volumes. Especially volumes 20 & 21. I love Nanami’s character, however, sometimes she can be stubborn. The kind of stubborn that leads to stupid mistakes that could have been avoided. I tend to find these types of stubborn characters a bit annoying. I really hope that she goes back to her smart strong self in the last few volumes, otherwise, I’m going to be pretty disappointed.

[Tag] Power Couples Book Tag – Manga Edition

I was tagged by the one and only RiverMoose.  Please check out her blog and her answers to this tag!

A couple that share big passions and goals

Ok so Maka and Soul are not a romantic couple, they’re best friends, but I couldn’t think of a more perfect “couple” for this.  Their ultimate goal is to turn Soul into a Death Scythe. It’s a bumpy road, but they never give up because they know they can depend on each other.  Continue reading

[Mini Review] The Dire King (Jackaby #4)

33590221“The fate of the world is in the hands of detective of the supernatural R. F. Jackaby and his intrepid assistant, Abigail Rook. An evil king is turning ancient tensions into modern strife, using a blend of magic and technology to push Earth and the Otherworld into a mortal competition. Jackaby and Abigail are caught in the middle as they continue to solve the daily mysteries of New Fiddleham, New England — like who’s created the rend between the worlds, how to close it, and why zombies are appearing around. At the same time, the romance between Abigail and the shape-shifting police detective Charlie Cane deepens, and Jackaby’s resistance to his feelings for 926 Augur Lane’s ghostly lady, Jenny, begins to give way. Before the four can think about their own futures, they will have to defeat an evil that wants to destroy the future altogether.” – Goodreads

The Jackaby books quickly became one of my favorite series.  I love it when mythical creatures and the such mix in with our world. I love it even more in Victorian/Victorian-esque settings. The writing was also quite good and very easy to get through. I’m a little sad that the series has ended, but it was an excellent journey. Continue reading
