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 :)
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. :)
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.
What 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!
