Kamisama no Memochou (Anime) add

PLEASE NOTE: THE FOLLOWING REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS.

Kamisama no Memochou is the story of Narumi Fujishima, a member of the school's Gardening club with Ayaka. The twelve episode series covers several mysteries that NEET (an acronym for 'Not in Education, Employment, or Training') detective Alice solves together with her 'lackeys' and her assistant Narumi.

The story was so-so, as it didn't actually have a plot. Each episode went in a sort of monster-of-the-week format. However, that didn't take much away from being enjoyable. My favorite thing about this aspect of the series that they connected a lot of ideas from previous episodes in later read more

Carat! (Manga) add
4 of 6 people found this review helpful
 
Okay, so this is going to be a fun review!

Carat! is a pretty funny parody of the typical mahou shoujo manga you see out there. If you want something solid for this manga to be parodying, think Nanatsuiro Drops and all other similar manga/anime.

The story, as I think I said earlier, isn't very unique, but even so, it was pretty enjoyable. The mangaka didn't seem to bother making it their own in the most obvious ways, but when you get farther into the story, some of the things that happen are rather unique. What I really didn't like though was that they kept using some read more

I recently finished reading all of the available chapters and I must say, I haven't read a manga this fantastic since Vampire Game.

The story starts out with Naka Kaburagi, a fourteen year old model who can't seem the get any jobs, mostly due to her inability to look "cute and less like a dangerous criminal". She decides to become like her role model, Umi. Upon running into Umi and picking up one of "her" belongings, she stumbles upon the secret that is mostly a base for the series.

Story 8/10: The story isn't horribly cliched like some things I've read, but has some cheesy parts that read more

Full Moon wo Sagashite (Manga) add
1 of 6 people found this review helpful
 
It's about time I rewrote this.

Full Moon wo Sagashite is the sad, yet inspiring story of a girl who has one year to live, as she found out when two shinigami visited her. Upon learning this astonishing fact, Mitsuki decides to make the best of it and try harder to achieve fame as a singer so she can reach her childhood love, Eichi-kun, who is living in America.

When reading any cutesy manga where there's drama and tragedy, I like to keep a box of tissues on hand. But don't worry, you won't need to use these until the second half of the series =)

Story: Now, read more

I have yet again discovered a manga I've read that no one cared to review. (Oh, yeah, you're willing to write a recommendation, but NO REVIEW? Well tough cookies. You'll just have to read mine!) Although, I should mention that I found this randomly.

Story: This storyline is not unique, but not common either. Girl's parent(s) die(s) and there are no other relatives she knows. Oh look, a rich grandmother she didn't even know existed! What luck!

Exactly.

I liked the side romance that was happening with one of the characters. 'Stoo bad he's the subtle jealous type bloke (Not going to say who, for spoiler reasons). read more

Kimi wa Girlfriend (Manga) add

You're My Girlfriend was actually very good! I am pleased to say I never one dropped it! (Although that may be because it's so short =))

Story 10/10: The storyline is pretty good. I liked the ending; it was adorable.

Art 8/10: I think I'd give the art an eight. This was because, though they fit, I didn't really like some of the facial expressions, and that really set me off.

Characters 10/10: The character development was as good as to be expected of a super short manga. I like the main male character, Kirie, who had the most humorous habit I'd ever read about. I also read more

Hakushaku to Yousei (Manga) add

Note: This review was really old, so I decided to rewrite it...

Earl and Fairy is the story of Lyda Carlton,a fairy doctor, whose claim of being able to see fairies has earned her the title of 'Crazy lady'. Well, not really an official title, but everyone who sees her tends to think that.

Now insert Edgar Ashenbert, a wanted man who's looking for a valuable sword, accompanied by a guy with a warrior inside him and a girl whom we don't get to find much about. Only thing is, to get the sword, he needs to be able to see fairies and solve a riddle. Unfortunately read more

Vampire Game (Manga) add

I absolutely loved this! This was the very first manga I EVER picked up, but even so, I fell in love with it.

When I started reading this, it was a time when I was restricted from read Twilight (But Now I wish I never read THAT saga...). Obviously, since it had Vampire in the name, I thought it would be some crackpot vampire/human forbidden love sh*t. I read it and I thought that Ishtar was a great protagonist, so I continued with the series.

And let me tell you, I had no regrets.

The art is great and that's when I got an art preference read more

When I picked this up, I assumed that it would have the typical shojo manga storyline. I decided to read it to test it out. I know you're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover, but that's what I do; I don't read a manga series if I don't like the art AND the story. It has to be both. I absolutely loved this!

The story is very cute and I think I liked this almost as much as Vampire Game, which is the very first manga series I ever read. Nanami is very adorable (in a sense...) and the fact that she read more
