Koori-hime Kitan

Categories: (Completed) Manga Review, One Shot

3512[1]Name: Koori-hime Kitan (氷姫奇譚)
Author: Kawashita Mizuki

And this is the entry for the “Read a one-shot” entry XD at first I wanted to add Akiiro Bousou Biyori from the same author but that one shot was only 8 pages long >.> so I changed into this one XD (yes, it’s the author of Ichigo 100% XD)

Doujima Kenji and his friends decide to spend their winter vacation doing a reseach on ghost but many of his friends have other things do to at the end (going to Hawaii with the family, spend Christmas with their girlfriends…). Fortunately (or not) for him, he finds himself with Takamine Karen, a cold girl that he likes. And here our ghost story begins.
Since it’s really a short story I won’t write more XD
The characters don’t change really much since it’s only a story about an event but Doujima is well developed. (We can’t say the same of Takamine because for most of the story she “sleeps”).
About the art… I can’t say really much. I like this style. The characters and the landscape are really detailed and there’s a good use of the screen tones in every page. A great work so in every panel it’s nice looking at the drawings.

My rating: 8/10

Story Spoiler

There’s not much to talk about the story since it’s really simple… but I liked it. It’s simple but it’s not boring and it’s interesting to read. Nothing epic but for being a one-shot it’s good.
And it was funny how at the end of the story Takamine talked about her being saved but that she don’t remember anything XDDD (she was possessed by a ghost for the entire manga XDDD)

Megane x Parfait!
May

Categories: (Completed) Manga Review

65221[1]Name: Megane x Parfait! (メガネ×パルフェ!)
Author: Kizuki Akira  (Art), Satou Nanki (Story)

This is the first thing I read for the 2016 Manga Reading Challenge (Read a manga that has a main character of gender opposite to the demographic) because when I looked at the cover I liked the art style.

The story is really simple since it’s a manga with only 6 chapters: a girl, Misao, joins the ” White Labcoat and Glasses” club because his senpai (Kyutaro) is there. She first meet her senpai some time before and now she is searching for him. She finds him and discover that she has a strange disease for labcoats… but that’s not all. She decided to help his senpai in an experiment of love… but the senpai isn’t the other that takes the experiment. She will do the experiment with senpai’s younger brother (Ojiro)! Will she fall in love for his brother of she will prove that senapi’s experiment is a failure and continue to love him?
Well… talking about the story like this is surely interesting but I found the first 2-3 chapters really boring. I continued reading them to complete the challenge but I think that this manga is nothing special and sometime it’s really rushed and confusing.
The characters… well, the only one that is interesting is senpai’s younger brother. At first he hated our main protagonist but slowly he fallen in love with her. Misao is funny but he stay the same until the end and sometimes seems that she can’t feel any kind of “love” emotion… and Kyutaro… he only loves his experiments…
The are is nice, surely nothing like a shojo since here the eye style is really simple but the drawings are cute like that. There are some screen tones but not a lot. It’s a nice style but nothing excellent.
This was a nice read but nothing that I really enjoyed since the first chapters were really boring and only at the end the manga started to be intresting. And we have to add that something was really rushed and confused…

My rating: 6/10

Story Spoiler

Ehhh… the first chapters are boooring…. but the ending is… well, let’s say that nothing happened.
At first Misao and Ojiro starts dating but it’s clear that there’s nothing between those two… they don’t act like a couple. And in the end… we return to the beginning with Misao that still loves Kyutaro but he don’t say anything… and with Ojiro that loves her but we can’t understand if he still dates her or if he must declare (again).
