Synopsis

Eun-soo Cha is the main character of the story.

Eun-soo has hated her Mother ever since she was abandoned by her. Raised by her Grandma, she became a wild child that likes to fight.

She has even disguised herself so well as a guy that people won't believe her even if she says she's a girl. She can fight well, and is even referred to as hot by girls. One day, however, her Grandma's already bad health worsens, and she promises not to fight anymore.

When Eun-soo's grandma dies soon after, she decides to leave Dae-Jeon (where she lives) and goes to Seoul to live with her Mother, despite still hating her, because she has nowhere else to go.

There, she runs into one of the best fighters, at her new school, and immediately gets on his bad side. What will happen? Will she break her promise to her grandma? Will love bloom?

My review!!!

The manga this week can be found on MangaPark...

MangaPark: Boy of the Female Wolf


I'm kinda liking using a manga cover as a starter image.... Anyhow... On to the review!

I have read only the first 5 chapters of this one so far and what I have to say is this... 
I LOVE THIS ONE!!! Yup... You read that right! I love it... I always get a kick out of gender bender ones... But most of the ones I have read or watched are always unintentional or forced gender benders... This one was completely and utterly on purpose!!! It was amazing!!!!

So our leading lady isn't a lady in this one... And already in the first 5 chapters there is a possible male crush.... OMG! I can't wait to see what kind of hilarity she gets up to as she tries to explain away why she is even registered in the school as a man but likes a man and is really a woman!

Unfortunately there isn't a whole lot for me to use to write a review on with only the first 5 chapters.... It is a well written story line... Maybe too well since it has a feeling of not moving fast enough at times.... And the art is wonderful! So far from what I can see it is a "slice of life" type story since we are following our leading la... ermm... leading man around his school and home life.

Now on this note I think it is a good time to rate it

On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Read" rating I give this...

So I'm pretty sure that nothing I've said so far would really make it easy to understand why I think this is amazing... It goes to my stance on genders... I think dressing link a "boy" or "girl" is over rated.. Same goes for acting like one or the other... I think it doesn't matter what gender you were born... If a dress is what you want to wear then put it on.. If a tux is more your style then go for it! Being you is what is important!!! I Love this story because I feel like in the first 5 chapters this is a strong message that is being presented to everyone who reads the books!

Because of that I am probably going to go searching for this in English... I hope they have published it so I can read it!!! I know I am reading it online... But this way I can support the author who put such a wonderful and important message in her art!

I'm going to end this here... Hope you enjoyed the review!

As always... Thanx for reading my review!
Have a gender bender day!

Kimi to Boku
.
Anime
.
Synopsis
.
.
The high school students in Kimi to Boku. consider their school life to be anything but exciting. A repetitive journey through classes, arguments, and orientations for future careers that seem way too distant. But with the right group of friends, time can be made to move a little faster.

Four high school boys, who have known each other since childhood, hang out together in school every day. There's the handsome twins Yuuki and Yuuta Asaba, the gentle Shun Matsuoka, and the calm class head Kaname Tsukahara. Although they have become used to a lack of excitement in their lives, the addition of a new transfer student, Chizuru Tachibana, who is half German and half Japanese, may add a little more adventure to their routine. With his energetic personality and stories from a distant country, Chizuru may be able to light up the dull atmosphere of the group.


My review!!!

The Anime can be watched on Crunchyroll...


Here is what they had to say about it...

About the Show

"Friends since kindergarten and seemingly like blood brothers, You and Me follows the lives of Yuta and Yuki Asaba, Shun Matsuokan and Kaname Tsukahara; as well as transfer student Chizuru Tachibana who joins the circle of friends. Together we will watch as they laugh, dance, cry and share the memories of growing up together in everyday life.” 

Before I get to far into it let's look at the PV!


OK... Now that you have some idea of what the show is I will start my review!

It starts off with these four kids...


Yes I used pictures of them as kids for a reason... They were childhood friends and have managed to even be in the same High School... In the show we follow them through lots of things that happen to kids in high school as part of an anime... Like for example.. First love... Jealousy... And lets not forget meeting up with friends they had forgotten about meeting as kids!

Enter Straw-haired boy!


Yup that's him in the middle! He was a childhood friend the twins (bottom two) had met when they were little. He has a hard time getting them to remember him even though he remembers them! After a while he does get them to remember though... You have to watch to find out how because I'm not telling hehe.... 

Together along with their new friend and a few other new friends they go through their second year of high school. It is a cute story complete with a back story that is given to you by showing you flashbacks of their young lives... Even the teacher was part of the flash back... It hints at a lot of things too but I haven't finished the anime yet to know if any of those hinted things are going to show up for real yet... And there was a second season so I'm sure there was lots more to tell!

But... Now it's time to rate it

On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Watch" rating I give this...

I am such a sucker for these slice of life style anime.... I feel like I get to go back to being in high school all over again every time I watch one! This one was really good at reminding me of things I went through that were similar to the things they went through... Like being teased and slightly bullied by someone who actually really liked me! It was fun to re-visit my school days through an anime and I recommend that if you want a chance to feel like you went back in time then this might be the anime for you! You won't know unless you watch though!


I'll just leave you with a shot of some of the halarity they go through ... Hope it got you curious!

As always... Thanx for reading my review!
Have an entertaining day!

Spotlight Review Wednesday: Manga 12~14~2016


Spotlight Review

Manga

Synopsis
.
.
Normally here is where I would put out the MyAnimeList.com synopsis but this particular manga is so new there isn't one! The closest I could get was to link the name above to MangaFox's description page... Which really isn't much either.



My review!!!

It's really crazy because I didn't think there would be a manga or anime I looked up not able to be found on their site! So... First thing I can do is list where you can find it!
So here it is... The manga this week can be found on two sites...


MangaPark: Marry Me?
MangaFox: Marry me?

I have to start off now by saying this is a really new manga... Not just new to be translated either... I mean it was only published this year... That means in 2016... I think this is a first for me too... I usually find out about anime and manga well after it has been out or talked about for years... This is the first time I'm finding out as it is being written!!!

So on to talking about it!

First of all it is a Yaoi... I'm sure you can guess that from the picture... But as of chapter 5 the two in the picture are not the two dating! The animal person is actually named Marry... And he is a manager at a marriage firm that pairs up animal-type beings with people looking to get married.

The other young man is his customer that he is trying to set up with a partner.... There are a lot of mishaps as he goes... They literally had me laughing in tears sometimes!

The bat-type was the best shocker though!

Now you are probably wondering why I am calling them Beings and not people right? That's because they are from outer space... Yup it totally reminded me of Cat Planet Cuties! I'm not kiddin!!!

OK... Now that I've told you a little about it I think it's time to rate it

On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Read" rating I give this...
.
.
.
10
.
.
.
Yup that's right... It's that elusive 10!!! This manga may not be done yet but I feel like it has the makings of something super amazing! I mean come on... There is romance... Comedy... Yaoi... and a cute back story given early on so you understand where the customer is coming from! I am seriously going to be watching to see where they take this one... Does the manager end up falling for his customer... Does he set up the customer with another customer and end up miserable? Is it really only for the money he can get from this guy? I wanna know it all!

I really hope what I've shared with you has you wondering even if it's just a little bit!

As always... Thanx for reading what I share!
Have a romantic day!

Synopsis
.
.
In a dying world, there exists an ancient legend: when the world ends, the gateway to paradise will be opened. This utopia is the sole salvation for the remnants of life in this barren land, but the legend also dictates that only wolves can find their way to this mythical realm. Though long thought to be extinct, wolves still exist and live amongst humans, disguising themselves through elaborate illusions. 

A lone wolf named Kiba finds himself drawn by an intoxicating scent to Freeze City, an impoverished town under the rule of the callous Lord Orkham. Here, Kiba discovers that wolves Hige, Tsume, and Toboe have been drawn in by the same aroma. By following the fragrance of "Lunar Flowers," said to be the key to opening the door to their ideal world, the wolves set off on a journey across desolate landscapes and crumbling cities to find their legendary promised land. However, they are not the only ones seeking paradise, and those with more sinister intentions will do anything in their power to reach it first.




My review!!!


The Anime can be watched on AnimeSeason 


Here is the summery that they provide...

Summary

In some distant future, it's common knowledge that all wolves have been extinct for 200 years. However, it seems this is false as wolves have not disappeared but rather have taken human form. Kiba, a lone wolf, wanders into a city, trying to sniff out the Lunar Flowers that are supposed to lead whoever follows the scent to paradise. The source of the smell is Cheza, a girl who sleeps in what appears to be suspended animation in a lab. She and the wolves are drawn to each other, and Kiba hopes to find paradise once he finds the source of the scent of Lunar Flowers. However, once Kiba finds Cheza, she is kidnapped by a mysterious person called Darcia, and his search begins anew. Before he leaves the city, he meets 3 other wolves, Tsume, Hige and Toboe. All four wolves have very different personalities and ideas, and their friendliness towards each other is a little rough around the edges. However, they soon band together to continue to search for paradise.

There are bits and pieces that we can put together with these two summaries...

Here we have our main characters... I'm not going to go into detail about them... But there really isn't much to tell by the 5th episode so it isn't like I'm trying to hide anything.


If I remember right then I can at least tell you the meanings of their names...

Kiba: Fang
Tsume: Claw
Hige: whiskers
Toboe: Howling

They each have a back story from what I can tell... If you plan on watching this one I recommend that you watch it on the Flash Player version whenever possible. Episode two is a bit behind with the subs on the other player but the second option is cut short... The first option catches up with itself.. Or it could have just been my luck to get a bad connection.

So far from what I have seen this one is a mystery right up until episode 5... We have no idea where paradise is, how to find it, why wolves were thought to be extinct... Then there are side mysteries... Like why the guy with the black dog and gun hunts them... Something about revenge... And just who the heck is the lab lady really??? 

That isn't where the questions end either... I'm sure that more will surface in time too... I don't know how they managed to get so many questions to fit so nicely together in such a short amount of episodes but they did it! Best part is I didn't even list all the ones I have after only 5 episodes...

So basically if you like mysteries and questions in your anime this one is for you!

But now to rate it!

On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Watch" rating I give this...
.
.
.
6
.
.
.
I know... with the high praise I gave for the questions I bet you are wondering why I only gave it a 5? Well... That's easy... It felt like there were too many questions and no answers coming to light. If they had answered even one question within the 5 episodes I watched I would have marked it higher... But as it is I could only wonder if I would ever get answers... I got frustrated at not knowing anything for sure... If this kind of thing wouldn't bother you then your rating would be closer to an 8 I'd say.

At any rate... This is one you would have to watch to see if you can stand the questioning atmosphere or not... I couldn't do it... If you can then maybe you could let me know if it is worth watching more of it??? I would really appreciate it if you would do that!!!

Anyhow I think I'll end this review here... Hope it was helpful!

As always... Thanx for reading my review!
Have a furry fun day!
