    On Spotlight: Piano no Mori: (The Perfect World of Kai)

    While I did say that art doesn’t matter that much anymore, I still have preferences. I like the art style a bit modern. So sometimes I tend to shun away from older series despite hearing wonderful things about it (the *kira kira* eyes bothers me in shoujo…) But most often I have to let go of my prejudices and judge it for what it’s really worth: the story. I think a few of you already knew how much I loved—

    On Spotlight: Kono Oto Tomare

    I’m so fascinated with manga that focuses on certain tradition/culture. Tsukikage Baby is about the owara dance and there is Pin to Kona which is about traditional Japanese theater. I recently read such an amazing series that I wholeheartedly adding to my favorites that involves Japanese musical instrument called koto, it’s called Kono Oto Tomare (この音とまれ!) by Amyuu I have mad respect to shoujo authors jumping to another demographic. I’m not sure how it works though but I think it’s—

    On Spotlight: Akatsuki no Yona

    It’s been a while since I made an anime/manga rec here (for those who are into it, you can follow my other nonsensical blog called kyaa for more concentrated animanga goodies) *coughs* I’m featuring shoujo manga this time with bishies (hot looking guys) and a banished princess, the anime/manga is called Akatsuki no Yona (Yona of the Dawn) by Mizuho Kusanagi. Great for those who love fantasy series like Throne of Glass and want to dip into the wonderful realm—

    On Spotlight: Hatsu Haru!

    If you didn’t know I love shoujo romantic plot where the guy is the one who is madly in love with the girl or if the guy is the one who falls in love first. Plus point if the heroine is oblivious about it. I don’t know, I like the chase & I love the guy to suffer a little bit (needs to work his ass off to make her fall in love) that’s why this series hit me right—

    On Spotlight: Liar Game

    I admit that the reason I kept off of reading this & placed it at backburner was because of the art. I’m not particularly fond of it. My desire for a more aesthetic pleasing character design toppled the very intriguing plotline. In fact, it was one of the series I put on my TBR list when I was scouting for new seinen series to read. I was wrong. Really wrong. Liar Game is such an amazing read. As of writing,—

    On Spotlight: Joou no Hana (女王の花)

    It’s been a long time since I blog here. My hands are tied with lots of things. So yeah, these happens when you juggle lots of things you think you’re capable of (I’m not!). I think my brain is finally getting the idea of maintaining things—single-handedly is quite ambitious. Oh well, I still do it. I really just don’t know when to shut-up. After I read/watch something, I go to twitter and ramble. I realized that I might’ve spoiled several—

    On Spotlight: Haikyuu

    This is for the peeps that are up-to-date with Haikyuu! If not, then stay far, far away because I’m gonna ramble on and on about things I want to see in this match (hint: revenge match). You still want to get spoiled, ok, don’t blame ok, because it’s no holds bar, an all-out plea for Furudate-sensei! Ok, so it’s the fateful match between Karasuno and Aoba Josai. We all know that the anime ended with them sadly defeated. They weren’t—

    On Spotlight: Handa-kun!

    I really, really enjoyed Barakamon. It’s one of those slice of life series that I immensely enjoyed last season despite that there wasn’t a lot going on with the plot. The simplicity was refreshing. Although the first word that pops up is simple, it is also in many ways profound . And those beautiful things in life are sometimes in the simplest form; provided by the littlest package. What Barakamon shines to me was the humor. It was just right.—

    On Spotlight: Gantz – Hiroya Oku

    So Tokyo Ghoul has ended and I’m hungry for more seinen. I’m not even asking for the same caliber, because that’s going to be a hard task. But something with the same vibe. I searched high & low; and from the titles I got, I was narrowing down my choices to these three: Zetman, Gantz and Terra Formars. I excluded Terra Formars immediately because I don’t want to affect my enjoyment of the anime (kinda learned from TG anime). Gantz—
