Liar x Liar, by KINDAICHI Renjuro

By • Jan 6th, 2011 • Category: Fake Relationship, KINDAICHI Renjuro, Liar x Liar, move, Romance, Title

Title: Liar x Liar Author: KINDAICHI Renjuro ISBN# 978-4-06-365629-9 Kodansha Comics, 2010 I was surprised when I saw this book in the shounen manga section of my local Japanese bookstore. This cover didn’t really look shounen, and sure enough, after I examined it more closely, I could see that this manga contains an ongoing story […]



Tsuugaku Densha, by TSUKUSHIMA Sango and Miyu

By • Dec 21st, 2010 • Category: Fantasy, move, One-Shot, TSUKISHIMA Sango, Tsuugaku Densha

Title: Tsuugaku Densha Author: TSUKUSHIMA Sango ISBN# 978-4-08-846549-4 Margaret Comics, 2010 I generally don’t buy manga volumes or manga magazines that have pictures of models/actors/real-people on the cover. I’m not sure why, but they usually annoy me. There are lots of random manga out there with photos of whoever the current popular idol singers are. […]

Title: Heroine Shikkaku (No Longer Heroine) Author: KODA Momoko ISBN# 978-4-08-846560-9 Margaret Comics, 2010 I decided to pick up this volume after reading the first chapter online at the publisher’s website. I love how Shueisha will post the the first chapter (in Japanese) of so many of their new releases for free! This practice has […]



Boy & Cool, by HARUKI Saki

Title: Boy & Cool Author: HARUKI Saki ISBN# 978-4-06-341703-6 Kodansha Comics, 2010 I picked up this cute oneshot volume because of the boy on the cover (oooh big surprise there!). I liked his mischievous expression. There is something about him that reminds me of Kikuchi Kamaro’s Rock Shounen works. All he needs is the tongue […]
