Mademoiselle Butterfly Manga Review


So this manga is set in the early 1900s (ends after the the Vietnam war, if that helps.)

It's about a girl who is sold to a geisha house and meets the neighbor who she falls in love with.

It's a very sweet story. It doesn't give much detail on each thing that happens but I still got emotional reading the ending, if that helps you at all. 
It's such a cute romance and you see the hardships they go through. 
The manga does have a plot that has to do with the war. (That's why I brought it up.) 
You see the struggle of being in a war.
I feel like it kind of reminds me of Memoirs of a Geisha.
Although, it's a little different, you get the same feel to it.

You really enjoy the two main characters and I thought it was a very real romance for back in the day.

Mishounen Produce Manga Review


This story was actually pretty original. I thought it was super cute. 

Kako and Kousei are childhood best friend from a small country town. They decide to go to a city school and when they go visit for the first time, some girls start making fun of Kousei, the boy. Kako then gets upset and says that she will make him popular and that everyone will love him. 

Kako loves one manga series and models Kousei after the knight in it. Everything starts to change when Kousei gets asked to start modeling and such.
They transfer to a knew school and everything starts to change.

I personally think they could have kept going with the ending. 
It was such a cute story and I really wanted to see it go further. 

They did have other character in it as well that I think they could have went further with.

The art was so cute and I really enjoyed seeing the reactions and how romantic the setting got and how they were able to change each character. 
I just really enjoyed the whole thing. 

I think it would be really enjoyable and cute to watch if it became an anime.

Hellsing Ultimate Review (re-watched it so decided that it would be good to make a review.)


Since this is one not for the faint of heart, I will give the warning up front.

No matter if you watch the original or Ultimate, they both have gore and rape/sex so please be aware. One has it more than the other, with the raping/sex though. (The original.)

Ok, I love Hellsing and I liked the art for both the original and Ultimate. I think the thing that annoyed me the most about Ultimate was that you couldn't see Alucards face a lot. It was dark faces in the Ultimate series. I have to admit though. They looked better in it. Except for Integra. She looked like a dude. That wasn't very appealing. I did like the action though. I enjoyed the difference in endings. Since they were so different. 
I feel like I should make a review for the original all on it's own.
Anyway, Blood and gore everywhere. If you don't like that stuff then you won't like this show.
Alucard is very enjoyable to look at although he is mostly shadow all the time. When he turns into his 'original' form... He's nice. ;)
Seras is much more of a main -beat-em-up- type character in this one, which is wonderful. 
Like I said, The story goes completely different in this so if you haven't watched it and you have only watched the original... please watch this. 
Lots of different characters but also characters you know of from the original show.

Shining Hearts: Shiawase no Pan Anime Review


I first heard about this anime when I seen the Milky action figure. I thought she was adorable and I loved her outfit. I decided to give the anime a go and I felt like it was a huge waste of my time.

The characters were really cute but it was SOOO slow. The episodes were so boring and I just couldn't get into it. There really wasn't a purpose in making the episodes that slow. I feel like they could have cut out a bunch of scenes that they just kept showing over and over of them delivering bread. I DO NOT CARE! There were things that could have made more sense. 

Like... Why was there this robot chick that flies around but they are still using boats to get around? I mean... come on. Then there is a bunch of magical beings... I just could not get into it. 

I don't even feel like going into the anime and explaining the concept because I don't even feel like it is even worth it. I believe it is also a game and it might be better as a game. Maybe It would probably make more sense. I would hope...

So all I'm going to say is... Don't even bother watching it. Just know its about a dude that washes up on a shore to a town and starts a bakery with three girls and then goes into making bread for everyone and then finally gets to the point at the end of the series. It's sooooo pointless. 

The characters are cute but I don't even feel like you need to know the concept of the story to get the action figures of these anime characters. What you see is what you get. 
I'm just very disappointed with this. 
Very disappointed.

Doing an old anime review that I watched/read a really long time ago.... Say 'I love you' Anime/manga review


OK!
Let me just say, This isn't an extremely old one but it's still a few years old.
I have seen/read the anime/manga. The manga is still not done and I am still waiting on the newest chapter to come out online. I think once I can eventually read the ending I might buy the rest of the series.

Anyway...
Besides not finishing this extremely long love story...
First of all, the art is SO cute. I just love the way they are drawn. Yamato is extremely hot. (I love visual kei dudes though... sooooo >.>) Mei is extremely cute and all of the characters are very enjoyable. Each one has a back story and I enjoy reading about them and care for each one.

The above picture is, of course, the two main protagonists. Yamato and Mei. The art in the anime and in the manga are pretty much the same. Bigger eyes in the anime to me personally but I enjoy both. I really wish the anime would bring out a second season though. The first season just ending and there hasn't been any news about a second season coming out. So if I were you, I would just read the manga.

When the manga starts out, it shows how Mei is being bullied in middle school and how she just trust anyone or be friends with anyone. (Which I feel like people will relate to a lot.) Then flips to her being in high school and yamatos friend pushes Mei down and basically starts to bully her and she thinks it's yamato and gives him a good kick in the face. Which, I feel, is the best start out to a romance EVER. haha


Anyway, If you wanna find out what happens, seriously check it out. It's such a cute romance and I really enjoy reading it.

Like I said before, each character in the show/manga (more the manga... the anime just seems to rushed...) has their own back story. So I can't really tell you about them since it's how Mei meets them but I can introduce them to you.

Aiko is probably one of my secondary characters. I love how her attitude is so blunt but actually really caring. I feel like people will understand her back story a lot as well.


Kai is a cutie, isn't he? He is one of Yamato's friends and meets Mei. 


Asami is a big busted girl but she is as sweet as can be.


Nakanishi is Yamato's friend who bullies Mei at first.

But yeah!
Seriously, It's a really enjoyable manga. I suggest reading the manga since the anime doesn't seem to be going anywhere and it was a bit rushed.
