Okies!  So my birthday is coming up! WHEW! ❤ And I decided to make a new banner every week to celebrate! ❤

Ok actually this is a feeble excuse to mess with Photoshop! 😄

Haha yeah so I’m turning 16! Cue the partypoppers! *crickets* ehehehe ^_^’ Actually I don’t know that to do so I did this!

march-1-7-2009-copy1

The first one is from the manga Code:Breaker by Kamijyo Akimine!

Summary: Sakurakouji Sakura is a girl who appears modest and graceful but in reality is skilled in martial arts. After witnessing a boy burning people with his blue flame, she is startled to see that the same boy is a transfer student, Ogami Rei. Ogami is a Code Breaker, one who “does not exist”. He is a seemingly cold-blooded killer who follows the principle of “an eye for an eye”, to “use evil against evil”. Convinced that killing is not right, Sakurakouji sets out to stop him and penetrate his icy heart. (Summary Not Mine)

Hehe yeah its a major contrast from the one before 😄 (Valentine theme) But its a very good manga! I love all of the characters!

Ogami Rei: His outward appearnce is that of a well-mannered young man but is in fact a brutal killer.  No seriously his law is very cruel: An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth and evil for evil, you can’t get any worse than that 😄 AND I LOVE IT teehee!  He is Code Breaker 06 has an awesome power, a blue flame that will burn anything it touches! Its impossible to put it out! BWAHAHA! ehm. Sorry about that.

Sakurakouji Sakura: A very delicate looking girl who not only has a strong sense of just but posseses incredible strength as well.  I love Sakura-chan she’s so awesome! Although there are times where I think that she should just realize that she may never get through to Ogami, she’s still pretty cool!  And I also believe that her personality is needed to balance out the estranged personalities of the other characters.

Fujiwara Toki: Code Breaker 04.  He’s pretty cool I love him! He’s power has to do with magnetism!  There isn’t really that much to say about him but he’s pretty awesome!

Heike Masaomi: Code Breaker 02.  He’s pretty strong and I would have to say, he is my favorite character in this series!  He manipulates light, ususally in whip form and judges the other Code breakers.  My favorite part about him is that he is a TEA FANATIC! WHOO!  He just randomly sets up his table and snacks in the weirdest of places 😄 For example in the middle of the school hallway, in the middle of the sidewalk, and next to a dead guy, then just acts like its the most normal thing in the world!  Although he does seem to read porn, he’s still cool!

Yes this series is shounen so there doesn’t seem to be any obvious romance but is still makes me laugh, and the action! Oh don’t get me started on that!  I was first pulled into anime by a fighting shounen anime/manga so its just something I can’t ignore! I LOVE IT! 😄 Anyway please give this manga a try and tell me what you think!

Currently Listening to: “Mechanical Lullaby/Dreaming” from the Coraline Soundtrack

Just thought I’d throw my feelings out here! ^-^’

Okay! So I just read chapter 3 from Aerandria and it was pretty good!  So we were introduced to Kohaku and her toad-friend Hayate, who used to be human until he got mixed up in some crazy spell business!  By the way Asagiri, is AWESOME!  I love her bigger form, its very pretty!  I also like where the story is going because it seems to have become even more twisted! ^-^ (Bwahaha! Thanks you Tanemura-sensei! )  I really like Kohaku, she starts off all clumsy and cute, but then we’re shown her awesome side (she’s got awesome powers GO KUNOICHI GO! )  She actually reminds me bit of myself! 😄 Actually after reading chapter 3 I went back and reread chapter 2 and Aoba said something like their fates were intertwined and then he goes and shoots her, WOW.  I’m not really sure what to think of time.  In this chapter we didn’t get much more info on him, except that he’s been “seduced” (XD haha sure) and it must be stopped.  I’m still wavering on him, one minute its “OMG SAKURA ARE YOU HURT?!” (well yeah you did just kind of shoot her) and then the next is, “I knew you would come! Its was all a trap for you!” -___- gah!

Alright, I admit I did exaggerated a bit.

Sakura, on the other hand, has gotten COOLER!  She’s realized her resolution, and it made her STRONGER! WHEW! I just love fighting girls! Although her “battle cry” is similar to Sailor Moon, Sakura-hime is way cooler 😄

Number 5

HINO Matsuri

  • Works :

    • Towaware no Minoue (Captive Hearts) [complete]
    • Merupuri [complete]
      • Summary: Hoshina Airi was just a normal everyday girl, who only goal in life was to have an ideal marriage based off her favorite drama!  Unfortunately everything is turned upside down when she meets the adorable Prince Aram.  Not only is he from a magical world, he also turns into a 17 year old overnight!
        • This was so adorable!  It had just right amount of sweetness coupled with some very dokidoki scenes! I absolutely loved the characters.  Aram is so sweet, Airi can be an airhead but its not too bad, Jeile is hilarious, and I just love Lei!  If only it was longer!
    • WANTED [compete]
    • Haru wa Sakura (oneshot) [complete]
    • Vampire Knight [ongoing]1/2

    Number 4

    TAKAYA Natsuki

Works :

  • Genei Musou [complete] unread
  • Boku wa Utau to Kimi wa Warau kara (series of oneshots) [complete] unread
  • Fruits Basket [complete] ♥♥♥♥
  • Komogomo [unknown] unread
  • Hoshi wa Uta [ongoing] ♥♥♥♥
    • Summary: In a small town in the countryside, close to the sea, a young high-school girl lived alone with her brother. When life seemed to her too painful and too sad, she contemplated the sky and refreshed herself by looking at the stars. But one spring night, she met a boy who sealed her destiny… The series is about unrequited love. (From Suba Furuba)
      • This series is very lovable (at least I think it is).  It’s about unrequited love (although I haven’t seen too much of it so far) and unrequited love makes me upset (XD), but to me that means that the story is good, because the author was able to toy with my emotions while crafting an interesting story.  My favorite part is how it follows a few select people, but their love lives are connected in some strange and normal ways.

Number 3

SUMOMO Yumeka

konnokikonoha012

  • Works :

    • Fuyu no Hana (oneshot) [complete]
    • Kon no Ki Konoha (onshot) [complete]
      • Summary:Only in autumn when the dead leaves flutter about can Akino meet the mysterious boy who lives inside the deep blue tree.
        • This story was incredibly powerful, like all of Sumomo-sensei’s works although she tends to write more shonen-ai than shojo, she can still write a heart-wrenching story.  Although it was a oneshot, after I finished I sat at my computer and stared for awhile. Please also check out Fuyu no Hana that one is really good as well.
    • Several other works (but I was lazy XD) unread
    • I have read several comments for her other works and they all seem to be very deep; the art work is beautiful as well, it’s simple but flows.

    Number 2

    TANEMURA Arina

    • Zettai Kakusei Tenshi Mistress Fortune [complete] ♥♥♥♥

Haine, now an Otomiya, is appointed to the student council of the exclusive Imperial Academy, a private school for the aristocracy. Even though Haine is of proper lineage to be on the council, she finds herself struggling to find her place among the many secrets of its elite members, especially those of the president who holds her heart – Shizumasa Togu, aka “the Emperor.” ) (Fron Viz.)
        • I’m not exactly sure why but I love all the twists in this series.  It has a lot of drama and it was very entertaining to read.  One of my most favorite parts of this series is all the different types of love there is, it satisfies all of my diverse tastes (XD).  The ending was very sweet in my opinion because it just made me feel better; I like it when everyone is included for a happy ending!
  • Number 1

    MITSUKI Kako

kiss

  • Works :

    • Ai Hime – to Ai Himegoto [complete]
    • Itsuka no Tsuki de Aimashou (oneshot) [complete] unread
    • Sora Log [ongoing]

    • Suki, Tokoro ni Tori Arashi (series of oneshots) [complete] ♥♥♥
    • Zenbu, Hajimete [complete] ♥♥♥
    • Kiss/Hug [complete] ♥♥♥♥
      • Summary: Ryuu, a super-businesslike transfer student from England with black hair and blue eyes just arrived! During the night of the Tanabata festival, Ryuu and Yukino became attracted to each other at first sight. He then declares, “You will be mine!” This brought confusion to Yukino, who has zero experience in love. But could she actually be falling in love? (Aerandria)
        • By just reading the summary, you probably think its an average manga, well it sort of is, but I reallly like it.  Most of Mitsuki-sensei’s works are very sweet and heart-warming and so is this one.  The beginning is what got me hooked.  Yukino starts off by remembering the past and I really like it for some reason! So please give it a try! Tsuki no Waltz is a very sweet oneshot and it like it very much.  It probably shouldn’t be longer because it would ruin the story!

Current Mood: Excited!
Currently Listening to: Come Little Children by Unknown

Haha, I’m in a very Halloween-esque (is that even a word?) mood today! Ok so this is pretty random but it was one of those moments where you wants to scream THAT WAS FREAKIN AWESOME!! ^-^’

So yeah today while I was volunteering at this fall festival type thing, (I was working a wildlife booth) and my friend was like “hey those people over there are wearing trash bags.” And me, being well me, was all excited was like “WHERE WHERE?!” So I looked all around the area until I found them and was like haha they are trash bags, why would you wear that? But then they got closer and I realized that they weren’t trash bags but COSPLAYERS! (I needed my glasses to see all the details)

I practically screamed because you wouldn’t really see that kind of thing at the event I went. It mostly consists of activities for kids, food vendors from all over and establishments and groups that need more people. There is also music, hay mazes, giant pumpkins (all the October/Fall related stuff).

😄 Yeah so there were like three of them, I only really recognized two. One was Axel, another was wearing an Organization XIII cloak, and the third was wearing a Moon Dorm uniform from Vampire Knight! KYA!!! 😄 I ran up to them and asked if I could take their pictures and they agreed (THANK YOU!). Some of my other anime obsessed fan friends saw and made me take more pictures for them!

So when I got home I rushed to get this out 😄 Haha! No I’m not going to post their pictures because I don’t have their consent, if I ever do I will but I’m not sure I’ll see them again so you guys will just have to deal with the pictures of the characters/outfits 😄

Axel of Organization XIII from Kingdom Hearts 2:

Moon Dorm Girl’s Uniform from Vampire Knight:

Please note that she was not cosplaying as Touya Rima, she was just wearing the uniform. I only used a picture of Rima because she is my favorite VK character.

ON SORT OF RANDOM NOTE (WELL ITS SORT OF RELATED):

While I was volunteering I got very frustrated because STUPID PEOPLE kept thinking that we killed animals! WHAT THE HECK?! I would NEVER do that!!! RAWR!!!

Okay, let me explain. So I was working at a wildlife refuge booth, A REFUGE booth! I’m not sure what they thought refuge meant, but refuge to me means, a safe place used to protect people and or items. Yeah so, we had animal pelts (muskrat, rabbit, coyote, fox, skunk, otter, and beaver) and three bird wings (Great Grey Owl, Red-tailed Hawk, and Barn Owl) out to show people what kind of animals were out on the refuge.

It was going pretty well (it was fun to see their reactions to touching a skunk pelt) until we got to these people, who gave a looks of disgust. It was kind of like they were looking down on us, like they were saying, “My god! Who are you horrible people! I would never allow my child or myself to touch that”. At first I thought they just didn’t want to touch the pelts, which I can sort of understand (well not really I grew up with my dad dragging me places going “lets touch the animals or lets learn about the environment” he’s a pretty outdoorsy kind of guy), but then I over heard some people say, “that’s horrible, how can they kill these animals just to display their skins to small children!”

I was like WHAT THE @*$#^&*( YOU @#$*_) SAY THAT ONE MORE TIME! HAVE YOU NOT SEEN OUR SIGN, THAT CLEARLY STATES WE ARE A REFUGE?! Well I was like that in my head of course, so I walked over to them was kindly explained they all died of natural causes and these pelts are used for educational purposes ONLY, because we are a REFUGE! She looked a little embarrassed and I was like yeah take that lady (but now I feel kind of bad sorry lady).

Well I guessed only one person wouldn’t be so bad, but that’s the thing, there were even MORE stupid people who kept thinking the same thing! I mean come on people, this is a fall festival with tons of little kids running around, yeah they’re really going to allow a poaching/hunting association to interact with little kids. Jeez! -___-

GAH! It just got me really angry because they automatically assumed we killed them all for this! NUUU! WHO ON EARTH WOULD DO THAT?! RAWR!!! *fuming silently* I’m going back tomorrow with another friend, this time I hope the people have more common sense!

Ah, cute! A pumpkin bath!
