I love shoujo anime, too. I especially love Magical Girl shoujo anime. We don’t get much licensed magical girl anime in the US, so when a new license is announced, I’m extremely happy. A new company, AnimeSols, has licensed one of my favorite magical girl series, Creamy Mami for legal streaming English subtitled release. They are also holding a Kickstarter-like fundraiser for a legal DVD release of the series. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have a DVD copy of this series! I have contributed to this fundraiser, and I want to encourage others out there to do so as well! Please help Creamy Mami get a release in the US! If it does well, then maybe they will release other magical girl series! Go to AnimeSols and join the fundraiser today. Pretty please?

Title: Futari no Himitsu Author: MORO Orie ISBN# 978-4-06-364319-0 Kodansha Comics, 2011 I was kind of hypnotized by the eyes of the girl on this cover into buying it. Look at those yes, all big and blue and unblinking. @_@ I was also attracted by the title. Their Secret? Ooh, I like secrets! There is [...]
