Manga: Romantica Clock / ロマンチカ クロック

Romantica Clock / ロマンチカ クロック by Maki Youko 槙ようこ

Summary: (From Day of the River)  Akane: She’s beautiful and popular, lively and full of vitality; Aoi: Looks like a small animal but is actually very clever. Who knew that these two very different people were actually… twin siblings?!

Is it incest? or just a pure rivalry between siblings?? — I honestly don’t know where this manga is going or what will happen to Aoi/Akane but thats what it makes it interesting to read.

The mangaka’s genres are all about shoujo and romance and I’ve not seen any incest/taboo that she’s written (or this will be the first!)

If you were to ask me how I want this manga to end up, well… I can’t really comment about that but I know what I want!! LOL

BTW, the drawings are superb! It’s one of the main reasons why I purchased the print copy :)

Manga: Haru Matsu Bokura / 春待つ僕ら

O-eem o-emm-gee!!

First, let me say, I LOVE THIS MANGA.

Ok, let me share why!

Haru Matsu Bokura / 春待つ僕ら/ We are Waiting for Spring is written by Anashin (あなしん)

Summary: (From Summer Rain) Mizuki who cannot readily open the heart to a person is going to turn over a new leaf from the high school to change oneself such. But after all I do not get along well…It is good-looking group of 4 that the rumor how at school to have met in such a case! Gradually knowing their true figure at the start though you were cautious…? Good-looking men and insane youth to send! – Sorry, I got confused on this summary

To make the summary clearer, Mizuki is a loner and does not have any friends however her encounter with their school’s basketball hotties changed her surroundings.

Volume 1 is available and it’s with a bonus picture with signature of Anashin sensei! When I saw it, I totally died inside. あなしんせんせい。。ありがとう!! (Anashin-sensei, Thank you!!)

This manga’s drawing is amazing (my readers would know that I go for the drawings) and if you notice, I already have a favorite (everyone’s favorite!)  He reminds me of Rukawa Kaede from Slam Dunk.

The story is light, cute and funny. It’ll make you squeal and your heart doki-doki. Actually, Asakura will make your heart doki-doki! <3<3

Trust me, for those who are not aware of this manga, you’ll thank me that I shared this. :)

Manga: Hatsu Haru / ハツハル

I feel like writing a review about this manga so here it is!

Hatsu Haru / ハツハル is written by Fujisawa Shizuki (藤沢志月) and is serialized by Betsucomi (ベツコミ).

Summary: (From Chibi Manga) Too far, it hard to be seen. too close, it also hard to be seen. It hurts, feel like crying. Too sad, until make you laugh. that’s right, this is what you call first love…the most popular guy in school, fall in love for the first time in his life!

The last sentence sums it up, a playboy who fell inlove for the first time.

I’ve got a copy of the first volume (Chapters 1-4) and so far it only has 8-9 chapters, vol 2 is still yet to be published. To clarify that, in case you are not aware, mangas that are serialized in monthly magazines are the first to come out and once it reaches the required chapters to produce one volume, only then the volume will be released.

HatsuHaruHatsu Haru pageWhat I like about this manga is, it’s refreshing because the point of view is of the guy’s! Unlike many other shoujo manga’s which is always about the girl’s point of view. I actually can’t say much about the story yet because Im still reading it (im currently at chap 4. Chapters 1 and 2 have been translated to english) but I know that this has potential!

For those who have not read this yet, I suggest you do!

Hirunaka No Ryuusei : Chapter 66

OMF… THIS IS IT.

I’ve been waiting for this from God knows when!

This post is purely for spazzing purposes.

I love Sensei’s side profile

This is in no way in order because every Mangas listed here is awesome!

Need more?? Don’t worry! This thread will be updated daily (my target)! I realized I cannot sit for hours to list all the Mangas I can recommend.

Manga Reader

This will be like a mini review on which is the best choice of gadget to use for mangas.

First, which gadget do you use when you read mangas?

As for me, I have ipad mini (16gb, wifi) and ipod touch 5th gen (lime yellow, 32gb)

I rarely use ipod touch for reading mangas because it’s too small! IMO, ipad mini is the best size if you are a bookworm/mangaworm. You dont have to zoom for a better view, its already in the perfect size.

I know there are tons of other devices that are cheaper than ipad but giving off the same quality of reading, however im basing this with what I have.

If you are still undecided which device will you have, ask yourself for your preferences. Does the portability matter to you? Screen size? Resolution? Capacity limit/Storage limit? From there you will be able to know what device is for you! Cause I’ve been there and it wasn’t easy.

I bought the ipad mini first and I was satisfied. I can read manga comfortably, I can watch movies and play games. The battery life is splendid! However, I bought the latter one for portability and social networking. Not advisable for reading mangas.

Conclusion, ipad mini is a good device for reading mangas. You just have to choose a decent manga reader app. The availability of the app varies on your country of residence. I bought the app Manga Meow for $3.8 and its worth the purchase altho for some pages it wont load but it’s not that bad.

Well, that’s all for this post. I hope this would help some of you. 

Hirunaka No Ryuusei : Satsuki Shishio

For the past few days, daily chapters for HNR are being released due to the amount of donators. I really thank everyone for donating so we could get faster updates for this popular SxT manga! I want to donate as well however I have not managed to create a paypal account yet, which I would in the near future.

A big thank you to chun-chun and Kaori-chan for their swift and timely releases of the chapters! For those who wants to donate, please send them through paypal to chun-chun@hotmail.uk

So.. Going back to the main topic, this post is solely for our Satsuki-sensei ❤️ which I believe have gained thousand of fans! Before I start to spazz, here’s a brief bio of him.

20131017-195943.jpgName : Satsuki Shishio
First Appearance : Chapter 1
Job : Teacher
Age : 24 years old
About : He is a friend of Kumamoto Yukichi (Suzume’s uncle) and often visits at Yukichi’s restaurant. He’s the one who gave Suzume the nickname Chun-Chun (actually, he’s the only one who’s calling Suzume like that). Outside school he dress up casually with his messy hair (which makes him so cool)

He retains some of his cool nature while in his role as a teacher and reject anything that is unethical on his profession, claiming he knows the line between work and personal things, however slowly he have realized that something is amiss.

 

 

 

I wanted to write more about him but I always try not to give spoilers for those who have not read it yet (well, except for detective conan ;p) Anyway, I’m team Satsuki, though I like Mamura too!, He’s so cool and carefree but matured at the same time. I just hated it when he cut his hair. Longer style suits him better! (T⌓T)

The chapters are getting intense. Still a long way to go with the manga! Can’t wait what will happen but I don’t want it to end yet!

How cool our Satsuki-sensei is? ✿♥‿♥✿
