Here you will find honest, intelligent manga reviews for shojo fans of all ages.
It's been awhile since I last reported what was in my TBR pile. I'll also include some of those that I just finished, say within the past week. Seems like the size of the pile doesn't change much, no matter how much I read!
Some series I just read through include Kieli 1&2 -manga version, Apothecarius Argentum 1-3, Yurara 1-5, Rasetsu 1-2, Kimi ni Todoke 2, Skip Beat! 19, Nightschool 1 &2, and Ghost Hunt 10.
I really got into Apothecarius Argentum and am waiting on the rest of the books to be shipped at this point. (Told you I'd get hooked, Lorena!) I also recently became a Chika Shiomi fan. (Thanks to your reviews a few months ago, Kate.) I still love Skip Beat! and Kimi ni Todoke. I first saw Nightschool in Yen Plus, then I discovered Dramacon. Needless to say, I became a Chmakova fan. Nightschool has a very promising beginning. Ghost Hunt got on my radar from the anime, and now I want to know the rest of the story. Finally, Kieli is a series I researched for paranormal, but there's not much romance in the manga.
What's left in my pile? I still haven't picked up the rest of Suzuka 3-12. I'm kind of stuck with that series since I watched the anime. I read somewhere that there is more to the story than what was animated, so I just need to get past that point. I'm waiting on the rest of Apothecarius Argentum 4-8, and those will be the moved to the top of the pile. The rest of the pile consists of volume one of Name of the Flower, Black Bird 2, Vampire Knight 8, We Were There 1, Red River 24-27, Shakugan no Shana light novels 1 & 2, and Black Jack vols. 7-8.
I could add more, but we'll save that for another time. Note that I don't always write reviews for everything I read, but you can see what I'm reading currently on the shelfari widget. I try to keep that up to date daily. In the meantime, I think I'll go tackle some of that pile. :)
