Sakura blossoms and rose blossoms are my favorite flowers.. My flowers of hope... I hope we can keep in touch! Oh, that's an idiom. "In touch" literally means "into or in communication with". To Business people, keep in touch means "keep posting information to each other". To close friends it means "let's stay close" (as in close friends) by writing, tweeting, or talking to each other from time to time. That is what This blog is for!
Yukiya Ayase is a gentle, kind hearted, and innocent university student. The only relative he has left, his cousin Tetsuo, betrays Ayase by selling him to the highest bidder in an auction with hopes of making an enormous profit to be able to pay off his debts. Somuku Kanou, a bad-tempered (though very rich) loan shark, comes to Ayase's rescue and buys Ayase for an impressive 1.2 billion. Kanou apparently knows Ayase from something that happened between them in the past, but Ayase cannot remember who Kanou is nor does he understand why he "saved" him. In a desperate effort to keep Ayase close to him, Kanou demands the debt be repaid in full and suggests the perfect way to do it: by selling his body to Kanou for 500,000 each time. Ayase is horrified in the beginning, but something soon begins to grow between them that can't be bought for any price.
When I first saw an image from this manga I was very confused.... It showed three boys with berries splattered on them and they were all dressed in white... Here is what I am talking about...
Now from the looks of this picture I'm sure you are wondering the exact same thing I was... What the heck does this have to do with "No Money" or even the angel looking boy with a chain leash!?!?!?... I still am not sure how it fits in but at least now I know who the heck is in the picture... I'm not going to spoil it for you though... It was fun trying to figure it out after all. When I did a bit of digging I figured out it was a story of love that was hidden behind supposed blackmail and dept... It really is cute if you can get past the "rape"... the quotes are because what starts out as rape ends up not so much so... Though it isn't an easy one to read if you are sensitive to that sort of thing... And if you have been through it I warn you that it may be a big trigger for you if you are not prepared to deal with it. I am letting people know this because I have been told by a friend that it sent her into a huge panic attack since it brought up a lot of things for her from a past issue.... Not getting any further into that but I want to make sure my readers are warned ahead of time.... And now on to the rest of the review! The version on MangaPark has the chapters in order... Bato.to has a few chapters but it is greatly missing them. I recommend reading it on MangaPark personally. I have read this one a while ago so reading the first 5 chapters for this was like a review of story... I do think the story develops into a good one if you can get past the gruffness of it all.... So now for the rating...
On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Read" rating I give this...
. I gave this one an 8 because I remember that I did like it by the end of it... My OCD makes it so I have to finish any manga or anime I start so I couldn't stop reading it even though in the beginning I didn't like it. If you can make it to the cute parts or the parts that show what the true feelings of each person are then I think you will like it too... But that means you have to stick with it through the parts that might rub you the wrong way. With that I will end this review and wish you all good luck getting to the good parts... It will be worth it if you like hidden love in your stories! As always... Thanx for reading my review! Have a wonderful and forgiving day
And yet again I have this post here... Yes this one... No link needed for it this time! I am really trying to keep going even though so much has made me want to stop... I am going because I love that someone wants to read and watch the things I share with them... Above all that makes me feel so happy and right now I really could use that huge dose of happiness!
So thank you again to all the people who read these posts of mine!
I'm still working to put everything back together so I really appreciate how patient you are all being! as for the future... I will continue to write about things that I do or find interesting and share posts from our YouTube family members...I'm working on getting my schedule back on track too.
I think tomorrow for the Japanese lesson I will share another newer lesson video from +tomoko tomoko as a type of apology... Sort of... And because I think it would be nice!
Anyhow... That is what is up with me now... My anime and manga reviews will still be out on time though... Thanx again for understanding!
Fifteen-year-old Izumiko Suzuhara just wants to be a normal girl, but that is easier said than done. Raised in a shrine deep in the mountains, she grew up extremely sheltered and painfully shy. She also has the unfortunate tendency to destroy any electronic device simply by touching it.
Despite this, she still wants to try and change her life. To mark her determination to follow through on this transformation, Izumiko begins by cutting her bangs, which shocks both her classmates and protectors. And that's only the start! Her guardian, Yukimasa Sagara, forces his son, Miyuki, to come to the mountain shrine and become Izumiko's lifelong servant and protector. Too bad Izumiko and Miyuki cannot stand each other. They have known each other since they were children, and Miyuki bullied her terribly. He simply does not understand what is so special about Izumiko. His father calls Izumiko a goddess, but that cannot be true…can it? Will Izumiko and Miyuki work past their differences? Is she actually a literal goddess? Find out in RDG: Red Data Girl!
I have to say this one is an ass at the end of episode 5... It leaves you with such a cliffhanger if you didn't originally plan on watching past there. I hadn't planned to but now I really do have to... I want to know what the heck the Himegami meant when she said she was the cause of... wait... If I say what she said then you won't have a reason to watch it... I can't do that!
I really did get annoyed at first though... It is like they want to keep what is happening within her a huge secret from her... And just so you know... The her I am talking about is our dear little Izumiko! This little lady has a HUGE change happening... She is starting to realize it.. And somehow it seems like she keeps being told not to worry about it or just not being told anything!
I do admit she doesn't look like much... More like she seems under average... She is shy and seems like a big crybaby... She is as skittish as a horse too! All in all she seems normal... But wow... What is hidden under that normal girl look is super crazy! If you like possession anime this is a new twist to it... Well to me it is anyhow. But I could be wrong!
This isn't the type of anime I'm usually interested in after all... I wish I knew more about how they usually play out... Or about the typical scenario that they play out... When I first started watching it I was worried... How am I supposed to judge an anime against others of its type when I don't know those things... So I decided I would just judge it on how I thought it was and not if it was better than others of the same genera... So now I'll share my rating!
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being a "Perfect-Must-Watch" rating I give this...
. With how interesting it sounds I bet you are wondering why it only got a 7 right? Well it was more a tech issue I think... The opening and closing theme songs and the FUNimation credits were so loud compared to the anime itself that I ended up with a migraine after the first 5 episodes because I didn't want to keep adjusting my volume. This is the only problem I've found so far... but for me it was a big one... I don't like to keep changing volume so I would rather end up with a headache than do that.... But it would be so much better if I didn't even have to worry about that. I will finish the series but it will be slow going so I can avoid pain. With this I will end this review. As always... Thanx for reading my review! Have a supernatural day!

This is a LOT of information for you to digest... So I think I will end this post here.
Mei Tachibana has no friends—and she doesn't need them! Ever since her "friends" betrayed her in elementary school, she's sworn off friendship entirely. All it leads to is betrayal and heartbreak, and she's well enough on her own. But everything changes when she accidentally roundhouse kicks the most popular boy in school! However, Yamato Kurosawa isn't angry in the slightest. In fact, he thinks his ordinary life could use an unusual girl like Mei! He won't take no for an answer, and soon Mei and Yamato embark on an unwanted friendship that will change both of them forever.
So this manga is a really cute one... At first I was a little lost because I read the summery from batoto...
Mei Tachibana has spent her 16 years without making either boyfriend or friends. One day, she drop-kicks a popular boy in school, Yamato Kurosawa, because of a misunderstanding but for some reason it seems that he takes a liking to her and one-sidedly claims that they’re friends. Furthermore, he not only protects Mei from a stalker, he does it with a kiss…?!!
And I had trouble figuring out who exactly the stalker was at first. Once I figured that out the story took on that cute feel I mentioned in the beginning... I think that the two summaries give away a lot so I am going to try to keep my spoilers to a minimum.
It is so true that the friendship our two main characters strike up is unlikely and also a bit unusual... It makes you wonder what will blossom from it... At the same time it makes you feel like you know where this relationship is going but you have no idea what troubles they are going to have thrown in their way on the path to happiness!
As in any manga or anime you KNOW it will be a lot of trouble and misunderstandings along the way... But knowing that makes you wonder if they will be the typical situations or if they have new ones you have never seen happen coming your way... The art and the way the characters speak makes you want to keep reading... Makes you want to know what's next!
It isn't a fast moving manga... But at the same time it isn't slow either... It feels like you are reading it in real time... I felt like I could read and read and read but never feel like I had sat there for hours even if I had. I felt like the art was drawn is just enough of a space that I could get lost in it and almost forget I was reading... I felt like I had "watched" this one!
So on this note... where I have set into what I thought of it... I'll now share the rating I thought this one deserved!
On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "Perfect-Must-Read" rating I give this...
It feels like a lot of the ones I am reviewing lately are getting really good ratings! I didn't do this on purpose... It's just how the roulette rolled them out! I can't say enough how much I'm enjoying this one... I'm going to end the review here because I really want to go read more... I have a feeling it's going to be a binge reading session today! As always... Thanx for reading my review! Hope you have a romantic day!
Honoka Takamiya was perfectly happy with his completely average and normal life. His primary problem in life was the fact that he shared a school with the school's "Princess," Ayaka Kagari. Both girls and boys fawn over her which makes Honoka's life difficult since he rides the same bus as her in the morning and sits next to her in class. What's worse is that if he even idly interacts with her her fan club takes him out back and beats him up!
One day while taking out the trash he looks up to see a school building falling on top of him! He is saved at the very last moment by the very same beautiful girl, Ayaka, that he's never even had a full conversation with. She finally speaks to him, revealing that she's been protecting him in secret, but now that someone is attacking him directly she no longer needs to do it covertly.
It turns out that Ayaka is a fire witch and there are other witches in the world who want to capture Honoka and use him for the power that he possesses inside of him.
Takamiya Honoka is just an average student who just so happens to sit next to Kagari Ayaka, the "Princess" of the school, and has never said a word to her. However, one day when Takamiya's life is put in danger, Kagari arrives to his rescue dressed as a witch. It is revealed that Kagari is what is known as a Workshop Witch within the city and Takamiya is under her protection and shall henceforth protect him from any danger that ensues...
There are a few things that the two summories tell us and there are parts that they don't... Like how come Kagari is the one to protect Takamiya? And in the first interaction she calls him a specific thing.. How is a boy a princess? The anime is fast paced right out of the gate and you end up with so many questions by the fifth episode that it is almost impossible to walk away at that point!
I did end up watching most of it in one sitting... This anime has the "Hook" affect.... You know the one I'm talking about right? When you watch or read something and there are things happening that make you desperately want to know what is happening next or what the result of what already happened is! Yeah... That one! This anime has it sooo bad!
The characters in this anime also seem to be oddly connected... It seems like everyone is somehow in on the whole thing... There aren't really any "just because" characters who don't either have a back story or have a part to come! I think that surprised me... Usually when I watch an anime I find at least one character who is just kind of there. It was a nice change!
There is also a really unique link between the two main characters. I'm not sure how it happened yet because I haven't finished the anime yet but I am hopeful that they will let us all know at some point. I think it is cool the powers they gave to just the cape they wear too... One of which is weight reduction!
I don't know about you but I would love a cape like that lol
But now it's time to move on to what you all have been waiting for..
Time to rate it!
On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "perfect-must-Watch" rating I give this...
I know I have given out almost no 10 ratings... This one is one that I don't even think a crappy ending would ruin... I don't know how else to put it at this point. I would watch it over and over again countless times no matter the ending because it is just that good to me!
With this I think I will end this review... I don't want to say anything else because there are so many things that could be said but would give away too much... You really just have to check it out for yourself to understand how it got the elusive 10 out of 10 rating!
As always... Thanx for reading my review!
Have a wonderus magical day!
I'm so sorry everyone that my post is so late today.... A lot has happened... And I'm sorry to say it is not good things right now. There was a death in my life... A person I cared about has passed away and I really didn't even want to write this post... Or any post for that matter...
BUT... I PROMISED... AND A PROMISE IS A PROMISE!
So here I am writing to you all... And I am not even sure what I am going to write about since I really can't think... I have had 3 deaths already this year... Granted two were my dogs but still.
The passing of time really gets to me at times like this...
So much so that I forget to live and just sit there worrying about if I've "left my mark" so to speak. I guess you could say I want to be able to say I did that to my kids and have them be able to remember me by it.
But I can't stay stuck in that or I'll drown in the black sea of misery it creates!
That is kinda where I am now... Just barely keeping my head out of the water... So I really need to step up my game and get back on track with my blog and my vlog because they are my life raft when times get bad like this!
That's right.... All of you are my light in the dark that guides me to safe waters!
So I don't say this very often and I really should!
I'll end the post here on a good note... See you all next time!
