Weeks 10-12 of Manga Hoarder’s Manga Reading Challenge!!
Super mini reviews included.
Skip Beat volumes 1-5
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
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.

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
Week 5 of Manga Hoarder’s Manga Reading Challenged 2018!
Oops, almost forgot to post my update.
This week I didn’t read anything that met any of the challenges. Well, to be specific I did read a graphic novel (Zita the Spacegirl – 10/10 do recommend) which meets one of the challenges. However, that challenge has already been completed.
This is week 4 of Manga Hoarder’s Manga Reading Challenge!
For this week I read: Kamisama Kiss vol. 18, Gintama vol. 1, Gintama vol. 2, and a graphic novel “Real Friends”.
Kamisama Kiss vol. 18
Another great volume in this series. This volume focused more on Nanami and Tomoe’s relationship. It was very sweet and enjoyable, except for one trope. Continue reading
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
