One Shot

Finally, here's a post about One Shots. I was quite obsessed with reading, rereading is much proper, one shots. So I'm going to post a list with short reviews (it really depends on how much I would be able to say). I'll be putting the list first and short summary instead. And by short summary, I mean one liner, even one word will do. I do my own summary, anyway. It may take time but I'll be including pictures. My original plan was to include the short review but then it'll include spoiler so it's not really a good idea. So it'll be like list then another list with full reviews. The reviews might take a while too.

Why the hell would you want to look at this list when you can browse yourself for one shots? I'm doing this for the sake of my review. Making a post one by one for one shots isn't exactly ideal. Second is I want to bring out 'the unpopular ones but damn it was good' ones. Most of you might have already read the one shot in my list so then just read my review below. 

What's so good about one shots? It's short and at the same time it's amazingly good. 

What's the downside of one shots? That's it. Don't expect for sequels. If it ended just like that, it's that. Suck it up. 

But to be honest, I don't really think it's much of a downside. It's what the one shot amazingly good. The way it ended abruptly leaving you hanging and craving for more. But it doesn't apply to all series. 

Cappuccino Review

This series is a seven chapters book and I think this is my first time writing a review about a short manga. This manga's artist is Yoshimizu Wataru. The artist for Marmalade Boy and Ultra Maniac. I haven't watch Marmalade Boy but I've read the manga and I watched Ultra Maniac when I was a kid. It's the reason why her art doesn't look like as the popular ones nowadays but I still liked her drawings. One thing, I didn't like is how her male main character somehow always looks the same.

First and foremost, this manga isn't shoujo. It's a josei. Even though it's not my first time reviewing one (Usagi Drop is my first one), I think just as the word josei suggest for. This story is directed to older women and teenagers might not dig this. 

So why am I reviewing this manga? Because no matter how many times I've read it, this manga gives me the same damn feeling and I have to share it to my blog.

Black Bird Review

Hey-o! This series is one of my favorites so far. It's one of the mangas I've read over and over again. Too bad, there's no more new work from Sakurakoji Kanoko. This series is basically about romance and the complicated stuffs that come along with it. It is one of the manga that I've read that has youkai/demons and gorgeous demons. If you haven't read this, why? Is it because it's a bit long? There's only 70+ chapters. It's quite short, in my opinion. Is it because of the smut? Nothing too much in it but there's a lot of sexual jokes which are real funny at times. Is it because of the female lead? Come on, you'll love her. She'll grow eventually. 

Before I totally get on with full blown spoilers, do I need to give a summary or some sort? Misao is a high school girl who can see supernatural creatures and when she finally reached the age of 16, her first love who was her neighbor when she was a kid returned and little did she know he was a demon too, a tengu.

Usagi Drop Review

Spoilers up ahead. 

I'm only doing this because I want to defend the manga somehow and agree with the person who wrote this. I want to thank you because of what you wrote I continue reading the series and I'm glad I did so. I won't read the comments because I agree and disagree to some of them. I've read the manga and watched the live action movie but I've never watched the anime. I didn't know it exist until I read the manga. I first learn the series from the movie then I searched it and found it mangaupdates and only to be discouraged to read it. But I don't what came over when I read it. I stopped in the middle for quite sometime, contemplating whether I continue or not because of the ending.
