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:

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.

Manga Reading Challenge – Week 3

This is week 3 of Manga Hoarder’s Manga Reading Challenge 2018!   And I’ve only read 2 volumes so far. But I’ve finished like 6 of the challenges!

For week three I read: Kamisama Kiss volume 17 by Julietta Suzuki.

Nanami, all this time, he’s loved you. All this time! You lucky girl!

I can’t really review this volume without spoiling most of the story since we’re getting close to the end of the series, but let me just say that this volume in particular is one of the sweetest most romantic things I’ve ever read. Continue reading
