However, I am happy I picked it up, because it is just the sort of fun, cheezy shoujo manga story that I like :) This is a ‘forbidden love’ kind of series, with ...

  • Goshuujin-sama to Watashi, by YAMADA Komomo Goshuujin-sama to Watashi by YAMADA Komomo Title: Goshuujin-sama to Watashi English Title: Master and Me Author: YAMADA Komomo ISBN# 4-09-130355-2 Flower Comics, 2006 I am finally back with another summary, and what do I do? I post another maid series ^_^;; Maid stories seem to be popular in both shoujo and shounen genres, however there are some noticeable differences. The shoujo stories are more romantic, and the heroine usually doesn’t have huge cleavage spilling out of the skimpy maid uniform XD The guy is usually cuter too ^_^ Komomo Yamada ...
  • Hitsuji ga Ippiki, bu MORO Orie Hitsuji ga Ippiki, bu MORO Orie Title: Hitsuji ga Ippiki (Counting Sheep) Author: MORO Orie ISBN# 978-4-06-364241-4 Kodansha Comics, 2009 Isn’t this cover the cutest? I bought it for the adorable sheepy plush thing that she is holding. I would love to have one of those! It looks soft and fluffy. This is a fun book that is, as far as I can tell, this author’s debut collected volume. I think she had a couple of one-shot stories previously, but this is the first tankoubon she has had published. The art ...
  • Hotaru no Hikari, by HIURA Satoru Hotaru no Hikari, by HIURA Satoru Title: Hotaru no Hikari - It’s Only Little Light in my Life Author: HIURA Satoru ISBN# 4-06-340529-x Kodansha Comics, 2005 As I am currently getting ridiculously fangirly over the second season of the live action drama for this series, I figure now is a good time to talk about this manga! Hotaru no Hikari is a josei manga, or manga aimed at an older audience than your average shoujo fare. This series is aimed at young women in their 20′s, and features a heroine in ...

This is such a fun manga, and one of my favorites! The plot for this may seem similar now to a lot of other series I talk about on this page, but remember that it first began back in 1991. I figure that back then the plot idea may not have been ...
  • Kimi wa Petto!, by OGAWA Yayoi Kimi wa Petto!, by OGAWA Yayoi Title:Kimi wa Petto! Author:OGAWA Yayoi ISBN# 4-06-325918-8 Kodansha Comics, 2000 There were two main things that attracted me to this manga- the title, “Kimi wa Petto” – “You’re a Pet” and the fact that the heroine of the story is shown on the cover eating Pocky. Now I am wondering which member of the food-sharing couple pictured here is the pet, and who is the master. Hmmm…. and I really love Pocky.. ok, I’ll get it! Heheh, it’s as simple as that. As ...

I am talking about this series today, not because it is all that amazing or wonderful (though it really is very cute) but because I am so happy to have finally finished it! You see, almost two years ago I bought a volume of this series at my local book store. I didn’t realize until I got home that the book I had bought was ...
