    He’s popular than the main character! MC who??

    I’m such a fan of main character, and that’s reasonable, and of course obvious, because I’m reading the story where the focus is on the protagonist. It’s very inevitable not to fall for the MC and all the circumstances that he’s involved in. But there are times when supposed secondary character is trying to steal someone’s thunder. Rare but not impossible. Let’s start of with my recent favorite 僕のヒーローアカデミア you know Bakugou? Yes, that foul mouthed brat who just likes—

    An adult female reader of shonen manga!

    I’m not really into gender or age division when it comes to reading. I think regardless of your gender (or age) you can enjoy the hell out everything you want! There’s no one will judge you—at least not me, I will never—should you decide to read that isn’t normally perceive by society that you should be reading by those still have some sort of backwards thinking. Don’t mind them, you read what you want! That’s always been my motto! But—

    A delicious slice of life in these manga series!

    Last month I shared my guilty pleasure reads, and by my definition is something I sometimes want to indulge in and not really I read often. What I really do crave are slice of life series: something light, something nice and maybe in between something fluffy, too. It doesn’t have to be too romance-y though, it could be about friendship and family something just celebrates life and its littlest moments. That’s what I seriously love to read! If you ask—

    The highs and lows of an impatient manga reader!

    When it comes to my manga series I’m very impatient! And being an overseas fan makes it harder to bear! But thanks to the internet it makes my impatience at bay! But still, the geographical restriction is something will always be part of my manga reading journey (unless I live in Japan…hmmm)! There are definitely cons not living in Japan but I just have to make amends so even though I’m huge manga reader who’s also pain in the ass—

    My shoujo manga guilty reads! My fave mature romance!

    I think the concept of guilty reads is more on people perception to the subject as opposed to your own. To me, my guilty pleasure reads are something I don’t often enjoy but crave it once in a blue moon. And  while I adore light slice of life shoujo manga: where two main leads blushes furiously over holding hands, sometimes I venture to the mature side! Now, even though I read them, I rarely like series that is ONLY it,—

    I also buy the manga for the omakes?!

    You know how huge of an advocate I am with supporting your fave mangaka and fave manga? Yes? If you love it go and buy it; I know internationally there’s gray area we all playing around *coughs* fan translation *coughs*  but when it comes to the heart of the matter, support is necessary even if you simply think of it as a form of appreciation to wonderful story you have read! But I will let you into a secret of—

    Dub or Sub? My take on the most debated question!

    Is this really the most debated question in the anime community? not sure, but it’s been asked few times already and people have given their opinion about it. But I think I haven’t (not in TL;DR format anyways) so here we are, giving you my two cents over this whole which do you prefer question! Now, if you ask me which I really, REALLY prefer?! Then I can honestly say that I prefer subbed version—not only it helps me get—

    Some of my fave shoujo mangaka (art style edition!)

    I said before that art no longer matters to me, but of course it’d be a total lie if I say I don’t have preferences. Of course I do! I am all for pretty, kawaii aesthetics. So when it comes to shoujo manga, I dare say that very first thing that will immediately grab this visual fanatic person (aka me!) is the art! Sure, sure that a LOT of shoujo manga failed me in this aspect—pretty to the eyes, numb—

    This is a Confession of a True Shoujo Fanatic!

    You’ve probably know already (if you’re a long time lurker and know me for quite a while) that I love reading shoujo/josei manga. What can I say a love the romance genre, regardless how cynical I am when it comes RL stuff (which I don’t wanna go further in anyways ) but reading romance is my silent sanctuary (also yes, sometimes it pisses me off how shallow stories can be, but who cares; mindless entertainment is what I need most—

    An overseas ‘otaku’ and what it means to be one!

    I’ve read a couple of online posts about being an ‘otaku’ in Japan.  The word simply means being a fan, it could be anything and not just anime + manga.  Yep, when I say anything I mean anything, like train for example (who wouldn’t get envy with Japan’s mass transport, ours is so…let’s just not talk about it.) But I’m not really an expert on this being I’m not Japanese, and never been to Japan (oh my gosh, let this—

    Ten Popular Manga Series I haven’t finished yet!

    Confession time! Despite my obvious obsession with reading manga I still have so many series that I haven’t finished yet! Some are even popular that those who know me are always surprised whenever I bring this fact up! I’m inclined to put the series on-hold whenever the current arc is not interesting to me. This list is pretty much an attestation of that! There are other factors that deterred me from reading: back in the days I solely relied on—

    My favorite “Best Friends turn Lovers” GNs!

    I love best friends falling in love story! It’s my type of poison. When I read summaries with this plot, I automatically read it. I’m a big believer that friendship is a solid foundation of a good relationship! I love to see couples who don’t only treat their partners solely as their romantic interest but also a friend they can trust! So with that, stories like these make my heart melt and my being absorb! Let’s get into it! 대새녀의—

    To art or not to art! (art in graphic novels)

    If you’re gonna ask the Mitchii of ten years ago, she will probably say yes—she is an art elitist.  She likes her manga beautiful, the panels well arranged, apart that story needs to be interesting! My requirements were pretty much out there. But y’all know I took four years absence from anything anime & manga, and concentrated in reading books. So when I returned I had tons of new manga to savor, it was an incredible feeling! But being a—

    Dear manga series: You’re way too long!

    If it goes down to choosing, I always prefer long series.  The longer time I invested that richer the reading experience to me! (And I’m pretty good on managing my reading list, especially for currently on-going manga series.) But it still depends to a lot of elements; I mean would I like a poorly dragged down story just to say I love long series? Nope, chances are I might drop that series. And lemme say this I have tons of—

    The boys who fell too hard!

    Male love interests falling in love first is one of those tropes that can easily convince me to try the manga (romance wise). I think I already mentioned it here how I immediately fall in love with stories if the main male love interest is the first one to fall. I don’t know why, in many stories, the way he struggles just to get the affection of his otherwise naïve apple of the eye is just so interesting. Plus, this—
