Regular / In which Mitchii just read & read & read more manga!

OK so I did some reading. Like tons of reading. confidence Sometimes I just wolfed down the pages and then hopped onto my next series as easy as 1, 2, 3. I easily get bored, everyone. When I’m resting I read. I remember Haise said that he loved to read because he doesn’t want to sit idle while consumed by his own thoughts. Yep, same case applies to me. I like doing nothing but I don’t want to think. My thoughts are plagued by worries and whatnots and I don’t like getting anxious over something (shooting my stress level up unnecessarily forced-temper). That’s why I love reading manga (much more than watching anime tbqh). It’s indeed an escape for me…

Oh wait what the hell am I blabbering about? Ah, sometimes I just ramble, and ramble endlessly. Well, this is the once a month feature here in my blog where I proudly dishes out what I’ve read last month. Mostly are swoon worthy reads and occasional bad-ass shounen/seinen stuff! I ‘m hopeless romantic fictionally shy-blushingand cynical at romance realistically. And I digress, so here they are:

Finished Series:

Bitou no Lollipop is josei series about her parents winning a lottery that ultimately changed her life—not because of the money but people she met after that. Cat Street was recommended to me and was happy to oblige. When it comes Kamio-sensei’s love interest I always hit the right man (same with Tora & Ookami). Futarime no Ouji-sama, josei series with love-hate relationship. Cute, short & overall nice!

Koi Toka, Kiss Toka, Karada Toka a simple first love of a nice girl + playboy kind. Cute but nothing spectacular about it. Kuro Bara Alice got me in a limbo. On one hand it’s quite interesting vampire twist—so different from the ones I read, books included. On the other, the female MC got me like “Act like a mature woman that you are, dammit!” (that’s me, the pot, calling the kettle black) cute. But gosh, I was so intrigued. I’m pretty sad it was on hiatus, like WHY?? WHY?? WHY?? *coughs* Tora to Ookami is also by Youko Kamio. Since I liked Cat Street,I also tried reading this one! Very nice (and I loved that the love triangle was unorthodox (that reveal in the ending!). Read it & you’ll know what I mean

Recently Launched/ Very New Series:

Konna Mirai wa Kiitenai!! is another time traveling theme shoujo, but in this one the female MC went back to the past to pursue her younger self to confess to her best friend (long time crush) or else she’ll end up single!! (hey, what’s wrong with that though??!!) It’s comical so I’m really enjoying this one. Suteki na Kareshi is giving me all the Ore Monogatari kind of feels (wait, it’s from the same author!!!). Nope, the guy’s hot though but it’s light, it’s nice, it’s sweet and even sometimes funny! Just really feel good type of shoujo! ). Umi no Cradle is a historical manga about a young woman on journey to find his long lost master, who tuned out wasn’t actually dead? It’s sea adventure with even a guy with hook for an arm (he looks good though!) Totally loved it! Watashi no Joushi is a pleasant josei series about the superior and his subordinate. Also really liked this one! So nice!

No Covers/ First Official Volume not yet released (NYR):

Ano Natsu is time traveling shoujo series. People from a reunion went back to their high school days and some secrets were revealed about them. Hakoniwa no Soleil is a mystery shoujo manga. Female MC’s art teacher was murdered and the teacher’s brother was seeking revenge? answers. The weird part is the suspect was a young boy, who in my opinion doesn’t seem like he did. So there’s the mystery surrounds the teacher’s death. *Nisekon – Danna Koyou Keikaku a smutty josei series about a woman who won the lottery and got her hiring some bishie as her husband! Toukyo Palette is about countryside girl who moved to Tokyo and met a boy from a famous idol group; and you probs know the rest! And finally, *Wagaya wa Kiseki de Afureteru is woman who fell in love with guy who is almost in his dead bed. It’s sad…but the twist happened which made it underwhelming after such a powerful first chapter. Too bad! mou-ii

How about books, Mitchii??!! Not now folks! I love reading manga, and so manga I read!

I also told you that I did some rereading, too, right? Yeah, I’m on the roll last month! As labeled, eight of these [*] are finished series so yeah! Then I also have some titles that I’m starting to read (like this)  but I’m saving them for next month since I haven’t exactly, officially started them! *wipes sweats* It’s a lot, huh?


And that’s it! So how about you, how’s the reading pile? Overwhelming like mine? Care to share it with me? music

    I’m so happy you liked Cat Street!!! I was so happy when she ended up with the guy I liked – I had fully expected her to end up with the other guy. Is Tora more in style with Cat Street than Boys Over Flowers? Because considering how much I love Cat Street, I hate Boys Over Fliwers equally as much. (I still can’t believe the same mangaka created both of these!) I hadn’t realized she’s written another series so I’m glad I have something to look forward to!

    • Mitchii G. says:

      I too thought he’ll end up with the other guy. But I saw chemistry with Kouichi so I was so happy with the ending. I really hope there was more time of them together though—it’s my only complaint other than that I was really satisfied with it.

      I’m not sure how to describe Tora to Ookami. It wasn’t as stretched-out as HYD (speaking of, what??!! You didn’t like it?! It’s one of my favorite manga series so this makes me so sad) but it wasn’t as mellow as Cat Street. It was quite different, simpler & much shorter than Cat Street. Ugh, I’m sorry I’m so vague.

      She also has another series called Matsuri Special that I’m interested in reading. I might also try this one of these days. :3

    I’m totally late for this, oops.
    I did a lot of reading too! I read BokuAka (which was super amazing), volumes six to ten of Bungou Stray Dogs (which was soo good, even though I was okay with the first few volumes), The Square Root of Summer (which was amazing because it had physics and it was intresting) and A Gathering of Shadows (I probably have like, ten emotions about this right now)
    I’m the reverse? Like, I read a lot of shounen/seinen and not much of shoujo. I read Donten ni Warau recently and I was so surprised when I found out it was a shoujo! It didn’t even seem like it was! It is a really good manga though ( ̄ω ̄)

    • Mitchii G. says:

      I’m so happy you’re now reading BokuAca! It’s super, super awesome isn’t it? I only follow BGD’s scans not the raws (I find it hard to read). It’s exciting that Agency is having temp alliance with Port Mafia. I heard there’s Akutagawa & Atsushi partnership on the horizon? Yep, DnW is shoujo, I also found it hard to believe at first. Some series, especially josei are action-oriented like Amatsuki and Bokura no Kiseki. ;D

    • Alexandra says:

      Yes, the alliance was super exciting because my two favourite guys (Dazai and Chuuya, btw) became partners for a night! I loved that chapter so much! You’re right about that Akutagawa and Atsushi alliance, which is really cool and I’m not going to spoil you, but trust me, that alliance is so amazing I can’t wait for it to get animated!
      Does that mean you’ve read DnW? I haven’t read any josei though. The only series I know is Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu (which I want to read! I loved the anime so much!)

    • Mitchii G. says:

      Oh I read about Dazai + Chuuya! (Gosh they really hated it but they went along with it, superbly if I may add haha ^^). Now I look forward to that partnership. I want to check the raws but decided against it. I love to read it in English first so just I’ll wait!

      Yep, I did, when the anime was still airing. There are many josei that are not really romantic. You have more choice with josei if romance is not to your liking. ;D
