Currently Listening to: Aimo~Tori no Hito by Megumi Nakajima (Ranka Lee) and the rain


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! XD

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


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 XD (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 XD 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 XD 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! XD Anyway please give this manga a try and tell me what you think!

Currently Listening to: “Your Hands are Cold” from the Pride & Prejudice Soundtrack (#15) and “May I” by Trading Yesterday

Okay, so I probably should have done this as several posts, but I’m lazy ^-^’ So without further ado, may I present, Aliceindreamland’s top 5 shojo mangaka!  The highlighted manga are my favorite! (by the way there will be a barrage of hearts ♥)

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 :

  • Tsubasa wo Motsu Mono [complete] unread
  • 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



  • 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


  • Works :

    • I.O.N [complete]
    • Kanshakudama no Yuutsu (series of oneshots) [complete] unread
    • Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne   [complete]
    • Fullmoon wo Sagashite [complete] ♥♥♥♥
    • Sakura Hime Kaden [ongoing] ♥♥♥♥
    • Shoujo Eve Ringo Jikake no 24 Ji (oneshot) [complete] ♥♥♥
    • Umi no Sakyuugi Nocturne (oneshot0 [complete] ♥♥♥1/2
    • Zettai Kakusei Tenshi Mistress Fortune [complete] ♥♥♥♥
    • Time Stranger Kyoko [complete] unread
    • Shinshi Doumei Cross [complete] ♥♥♥♥
      • Summary: In return for a business loan of 50 million yen, the prestigious Kamiya family gave their daughter Haine away to the Otomiya family. 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


  • Works :

    • Ai Hime – to Ai Himegoto [complete]
    • Itsuka no Tsuki de Aimashou (oneshot) [complete] unread
    • Sora Log [ongoing]
    • Kamisama Ongeai! (oneshot) [complete] ♥♥♥1/2
    • Katakoi no Tsuki [complete] ♥♥♥1/2
    • Tsuki no Waltz (oneshot) [complete] ♥♥♥1/2
    • 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!
