Current Mood: Excited! (Just saw Coraline)

Currently Drinking: Red Tea (Still haven’t finished it)

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! XD 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 XD

Current Mood: Relaxed

Current Drink: Red Tea

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] ♥♥♥♥

      • 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!
