    Twenty Eighteen’s Best of the Best!

    It’s that time of year once again! I’m quite pleased with how my reading progress went this year. And unlike last year where it was kinda difficult process because of my very, very small pool of manga to pick! It was a happy struggle to know I have so many manga and webtoons to choose from because of how productive my 2018 is in terms of reading. So that’s the good part, the downside of this all is my anime—

    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—

    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 think I’ll be perpetually in love with the romance genre!

    I think “romance” genre is overly saturated; there are just so many of them already. But it is the genre of my comfort reads and I love reading it. I don’t shy away from confessing my undying love for shoujo manga—which mostly are romance stories!  Also josei! And even if I’m reading shonen or seinen sometimes I do ship couples in there as well! There’s something uplifting about shipping and seeing these characters affection grows throughout the story is something—

    Twenty Seventeen Best of the Best!!

    This is kinda easy and somewhat kinda hard list to do. One, I reread so much this year (look out for my yearly stat report about it) that I only have few titles to pick from. It’s hard in the sense, since you know it’s the “best” list soooo they should be the best (well, they are! They are! But it felt like I didn’t have lots of contender so it was winner came by default). Secondly, not only did—

    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—

    The Great Josei Post! (Part 2)

    Ei~! Welcome to the second part of the great josei post! I hope you at least check the manga recommendation on the first part. I think I went overboard with the description last time. Haha, once I started typing, words flew right out of my head and into the computer. But I’ll try to give brief description this time around. 3 AM Dangerous Zone (Gozen 3-ji no Muhouchitai) by Nemu Yuoko (Completed) Our MC was an illustrator who instead of—
