[Netgalley] Manga Classics: Jane Eyre

I just had to check out another. This might be my last manga classics in awhile because I can only read so many (lol)

Jane Eyre is one of those classics that I’ve only heard of but never really got curious about. I’ve read Wuthering Heights by Charlotte Bronte but aside from that one book, I hadn’t really heard of this author’s name before Continue reading

Crimson’s Top 4 Moments in Your Name Movie

Yup, this comes out before my review for Your Name. I just couldn’t help it! Since I’m talking about moments in Your Name, there’s obviously SPOILERS so please go watch the movie if you haven’t already!! And if you have watched it already, I hope you watched it more than once (lol).

Some of these moments I only realized I liked because I went back for a second watch and they meant more sense to me. Others I thoughts were hilarious, and one I love and hate with a passion. You’ll see why  Continue reading

Too Many Feels and Tears: Season 2 of Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East

Oh my, Oh my. So I went back to watch Season 2 soon after finishing Season 1 and I don’t think I’ve ever had such an intense workout before? I swear my heart was about ready to pop out of my mouth and I probably screamed a couple dozen times at 1:47AM

Season 2 continues off where we left off in Season 1, which was Shino and Sousuke finding the eight gems of Princess Fuse’s Dog Companions. Our characters are starting to draw connections between their flower shaped birthmarks and their backstories, making finding the rest of the Companions slightly easier Continue reading

Hana to Usagi by Kashima Chiaki

Hey guys! So I recently went back to Kashima Chiaki’s titles and noticed I hadn’t talked about Hana to Usagi even though I did do an unboxing for it. I did mention what the story was about in that post but I held myself back from fangirling

A cute little story about a delivery guy named Kajiyama Ryouta who, on his first day as a deliveryman, meets a really eccentric guy named Aizawa Mamoru who always wears a bunny head when accepting deliveries. It makes him wonder why he wears the bunny head and his imagination spirals out of control, believing Aizawa is a murderer or some other kind of wanted criminal. One day, when making another delivery, Kajima meets a guy who reminds him of Aizawa only to realize it is Aizawa without the rabbit head!  Continue reading

Ibitsu na Koi no Seesaw Game by Kashima Chiaki

Ok guys, I’m a little lot emotional about this manga so if I start sobbing halfway through…it’s because I love this 😭

First off, Kashima Chiaki is one of my all-time favorite mangaka. I randomly stumbled upon one of her doujin called Tonari no Haruka-chan, back when I was in the FREE fandom. Suffice to say I loved her art and searched for more of her work. That eventually led me to her original stuff like Flower and Bunny, which I loved, and since then I’ve been reading her stuff like a slave to her beautiful art.

And I thought I’d go ahead and review a couple of them while I wait for the Scarlet Beriko titles to update (as well as another I’m excited about showing you all)

Ibitsu na Koi no Seesaw Game is about a phantom thief named Grey and Inspector Sudo. Grey is notorious for sending cards to the police, announcing his next crime and successfully slipping away undetected. Meanwhile, Sudo has been working on the Grey case for what feels like forever now, but no matter what happens, Grey always slips away. Continue reading

Seven Days: The Manga and Live Action Comparison and Thoughts

Hey guys!

So the other day I was thinking I wanted to watch some movies to help diversify the content on my blogs, instead of just having anime and manga. But I was a bit hesitant since I don’t like to watch movies by myself. I’m more the type to watch with someone else and then talk about it with them.

That’s when I randomly thought of BL dramas and how I’d never watched one before! After doing a bit of research I found Seven Days and immediately headed over. However, as I was watching the live action I couldn’t stop myself from picking up the manga, so instead of doing a review on the live action by itself, I thought I’d do a semi-comparison/overall review of both.

Favorite Reads of 2016

So I was debating if I should write this post or not for almost a week, and then decided I should if I wanted to, it’s my blog, judge me if you want, I know I’m a wannabe reader~!!

giphy

I didn’t read as much as I hoped (hence my hesitance) but here are my top reads for 2016, both novels and manga~ (I added manga because it made the list a bit longer hehe, I know, I’m such a cheater) Continue reading

[Review] Gekkan Shojo Nozaki-kun

I was trying to figure out what number this series would fall into for my ‘2015 Finished Series’ and found I couldn’t remember how many I’ve watched this year. I doubt it ever made it into the double digits realm and so I gave up halfway through.

But out of all the anime I did watch, which is few, this one short 12-episode show has to be my favorite thus far!

I was actually watching this when it first came out, but like always I just couldn’t wait and before I knew it 12 episodes was too much for me to watch while in school…but I came back! And almost binge watched this (˶′◡‵˶)

I’d give it a 5/5 or 10/10 if I actually believed a show could be perfect but I don’t so I’ll give it a 4.75/5 and 9.75/10, because that’s almost perfect! (๑→‿←๑)

Gekkan Shojo Nozaki-kun Summary:

One day Chiyo Sakura finally works up the courage to confess to her classmate Umetaro Nozaki, but because of her nervousness she ends up confessing she’s ‘always admired him.’ Mistaking Sakura as a fan of his work ‘Let’s Fall in Love’Nozaki gives Sakura an autograph signed Sakiko Yumeno and invites her to his house to help with beta work. It’s through this that Sakura accidentally becomes Nozaki’s manga assistant and meets a series of wacky characters that are surprisingly, acquaintances of Nozaki’s.
