It's been a while since I've been this pleasantly surprised and had some real LOL moments. Sensei really knows how to do gags.

Also, though it has the tag "School" in it, you don't need to worry that this might be another cliched high school BL manga. Though the couple do kind of "fall in love" while they're students, most of the story takes place when they're adults. They're in aviation school and after the "drama", we get a loop to the future 8 years later. Though it is kind of an "office romance", I never felt like sensei dumbed it down or just went with read more

This was my first venture into the sports anime genre, and DnA just sucked me into it like a black hole. I've never watched a single baseball game in my life and I've never showed any interest in the sport. I honestly thought that I wouldn't like this show, but if it's good enough to get approved for 52 episodes in its first season (and the fact that it was being produced by Madhouse), I thought I'd give it a try. I can honestly say that DnA has become one of my all-time favourite shows.

The story (10/10) is pretty straightforward: we follow Sawamura's journey as read more

After seeing a score of 8.22 and skimping through reviews lauding Higashi no Eden for its intricate and unique plot, I decided to give it a try. I was also looking for more anime with a theme similar to Zankyou no Terror and one of the recommendations was HnE.

So, an anime with tags like "Drama, Romance, Comedy, Sci-Fi, Mystery" and a "whopping" score of 8.22 for only 11 episodes? I was so excited at the prospect of watching a real gem of an anime, and thought I couldn't possibly not like this series. I would surely be in for one hell of a ride!

** If you're like me and don't read mecha manga, I would suggest watching the anime first before starting on the manga. I have a hard time getting most of the fighting/action scenes in these kinds of manga, so seeing the animated versions of those scenes helped me a great deal in visualizing the action scenes in the manga. **

Humans no longer live on a planet, but in an intricate spaceship called Sidonia, constantly on the move in the galaxy. The biggest threat to Sidonia are the Gauna, alien life forms who seemingly want to destroy Sidonia and mankind. In order to fight and kill read more

There's not much to tell in terms of story/plot; the synopsis tells it all.

The art was enjoyable, clean and uncomplicated. The two main characters might not have been the most memorable, but what still made PH enjoyable was the interaction between them; there were more than a few funny (and sweet) moments.

And the bonus for me is that the uke wasn't (overly) girly.

Doushitemo Furetakunai is only BL manga I have read thus far that seamlessly blends drama with yaoi, with just a light comedic touch (after I read a succession of panels that lead to me thinking "Aww, that's really sweet", this line suddenly shows up "Don't fart in your sleep" (lol) and strangely, it never seriously detracted from the whole "sensitive" mood that was set). Though DF only has 9 chapters, the story was told beautifully and nothing felt rushed. Not one panel in the manga felt excessive or out of place, they just flowed nicely into one another. The whole story might've well been based read more

The story was simple and straight forward and the development of the romance between the two main characters took place in a relatively logical and gradual way; so don't expect the main duo to jump in bed with each other right off the bat. At one point I even questioned why the tag "Yaoi" was added to this manga.

What stuck with me most was no doubt the art, very beautiful. I'm not sure what it is, but Takarai sensei's style gives off a very "tranquil" vibe, fitting in nicely with the shounen-ai genre. The scenes which had to portray the characters in a state of read more

After I read the first volume, I thought the story was pretty solid and I liked the main character Yukio (partly because I'm biased to the name alone; Yuki is such a pretty name). But after I read a few chapters of the 2nd volume, I gradually lost interest and eventually dropped the manga. I did skip through the rest of the available chapters, just to see if maybe the story would become interesting again, but alas.

The main reason was because Yukio turned out to be different from what I expected. My initial impression was that he was the "good fighter, cocky, confident, tough" guy, read more

After I had read all the available chapters of Skip Beat! and craved for some more shoujo manga, I found Honey Hunt.

The setting is the showbizz world, with an emphasis on the acting business. I find the plot pretty OK and logical. The villain is Yura's mom; I think this is the first time I came across a villain I genuinely despised... She has the whole world fooled into thinking she's the best parent on the planet and loves Yura, when in fact she doesn't care in the least. And on top of that, she sleeps with her daughter's best/only friend while knowing Yura read more

I started reading Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike after I read another work by the same mangaka, Super Lovers. I originally thought there were going to be some explicit guy on guy action (I thought the manga was classified as Yaoi/Shounen-Ai), but the story doesn't need that at all. In the end they have developed an undeniably special relationship, but I was never sure what kind exactly: a "I'd take a bullet for you" bff relationship, the brotherly kind of relationship or the lovers kind. And in the end, I was still content with not knowing.

The macho main guy is Hosaka Kiyomine, the read more
