Book Review: Spearwood Academy Volume 2


Spearwood Academy Volume 2 Episodes 6-10 by A. S. Oren

Avalon gets through her first test in Spearwood Academy with flying colors...in gold scales to be exact. She's learning a lot of new things about herself, the boys, the school, the shapeshifters and that everybody is not what they appear to be. But there's still a lot of questions unanswered and more questions are being unraveled as the academy seems to have bigger plans for her. Warning! Spoilers ahead.

800,000 hits


It all started when I watched the very first episode with the Y8,000,000 vase. The accident has caused a chain of events that will eventually lead to 800,000 hits. Yay! It's the first time that the hits doubled in a year.  Does that mean we'll be hitting the seven digits by next year? Thanks  for visiting and please come back again!

Bishonens and Flower Boys


There's a drought of reverse harem anime this summer save for Kamisama OVA but bishonen-filled animes on the other have been plentiful. And just basing on the posters, there's Bakamatsu Rock, Dramatical Murder, Shounen Hollywood, Love Stage, Kuroshitsuji and of course Free! I was looking for a term for this phenomenon and I saw Hashihime dubbing it as bishonen genre. So that was what I was looking for!

I've promised I'll be prioritizing animes so weeks ago I've finally watched the touted otome mobile game turned anime, Sengoku Paradise Kiwami. For the longest time, I thought it was a reverse harem anime but turns out the "heroine" is actually a feminine-looking boy. Yup, bishonen anime! There's a lone woman but she's more in a supporting role and they're not into her.

Meanwhile in dramas, there's been also a lot flower boy concept ever since Boy Before Flowers. TVN is heavily capitalizing on it as well. They had an Oh Boy Series trilogy and other dramas that have a bevy of pretty men.

Bishonen animes and flower boy dramas have been out there for a long time but I have come to this theory that reverse harem may have also helped in making producers realize that there is a large market for girls hankering for pretty boys.
But sadly I haven't really watched bishonen and flower boys with my hands already full with reverse harem. But tell me what are your favorite shows? I'm not expert on this topic but I feel like this deserves a special mention since bishonen, flower boys and reverse harem are like cousins on the mother side while on the father side we've got the harem.

News Round Up: CR adds Watashi ga Motete Dousunda , KHJ assault case and more


Crunchyroll adds Watashi ga Motete Dousunda manga (What's The Good of Me Being Popular or Boys, kiss him instead of me) Crunchyroll users gets to create official English title and Kodansha will choose the winning title. Contest details and the first chapter will be out on September 3. More info from CR via ANN.


It's sad that Kim Hyu Joong is involved in an alleged assault with his girlfriend. There's also news that he's trying to postpone his military enlistment and to have it moved for next year. More info from allkpop.


In light of the recent news of Hello Kitty being a girl cosplaying as a cat. Well here's Hello Kitty cosplaying as a cat and as a cat crossplaying as the Neoromance bishies. From ANN


There was a Brothers Conlict Museum that ran from August 11 to 17 at Kotobukiya Akihabara store. Check out CR for pictures of massive collection of BroCon.

Poll: How old are you?


Wow! I didn't expect a high turnaround of votes. 868 votes! This poll beat Starry Sky's 837 votes and came in second after Brothers Conflict's 900 votes. And what's more surprising is that 67% of you peeps are all 18 and below! So if you see the tags smut and new adult or if there's a warning or disclaimer from me, please, please don't click it until you're old enough to drive, to get drunk, get married and have babies! I feel like I now have a moral responsibility for all you young people.  And if I ever catch you, 'Oy! You'll all be grounded'. (You have to read The Ghost Bird series to get this reference. Or wait it's about to become new adult now...) It's also reassuring that there's at least one percent of you lot scattered around the globe who's still a fan of reverse harem just like me. Haha! Thanks again for joining. Now my curiosity had been satisfied and I have an idea now on where to take this blog. Here's the breakdown:

12 years old and below- 54 votes (6%)
13-18 years old- 531 votes (61%)
19-23 years old- 201 votes (23%)
24-30 years old- 52 votes (5%)
31-40 years old- 15 votes (1%)
41-50 years old- 7 votes (0%)
over 50 years old- 8 votes (0%)

The picture above is from the new drama, Plus Nine Boys. Nope, not a reverse harem but it's like a new take of the flower boy concept. It's about flower boys/men with ages ending in nines: 9, 19, 29 and 39 years old.

Manga Review: Ai Kiss Idol Kiss



Ai Kiss Idol Kiss by Haruko Kurumatani 1 volume-complete

Hina has been a long-time fan of the idol group, Kiss and when she finally gets the chance to watch their concert for the very first time, she finds herself as their "domestic animal". 

The premise and the start of the story has the word "smutty" smeared all over it and later on I found out it was by Haruko Kurumatani of "Bishounen Oheya" and "Akutou Danshi Collection". Smutty mangas alert! I braced myself for lewd situations but instead I was surprised with the wholesome sweetness. The unexpected thing he did at Chapter 3 really gave my heart a lot of doki-dokis. We still have to wait for the last chapter though.

And of course, I know you wouldn't miss the similarities with the Sunako from "The Wallflower" and Hana of "Crash!!". It also makes me wonder what would happen if we throw any of these three nosebleeding girls in the hands of the Sakamaki brothers of Diabolik Lovers.

Happy birthday Reiji and old birthday wallies



Finally I got the chance to post the DiaLov wallpaper greetings on the exact birth date. For iphone formats check out Diabolik Lovers blog. Check out the previous birthday wallies for this year after the jump.

And the votes had been casted. The winning pick for Yui Kasunagi is...the Light and Sun God, Apollon Agana Belea! I've observed that leader-type or the main lead guys, no matter what personality, always win in the polls well except for Heart no Kuni and Hanayaka Nari. Thanks for all the 753 humans who voted! And thanks for giving me the opportunity to come across Takeru's swimming outfit whilst looking for photos. I wasn't into him yet when that episode aired. Now I just can't look at it without blushing! These type of posts are also opportunities for me to see their happy endings in the otome and man Thoth's and Takeru's endings got me swooning! Go on and search for your happy ending of whoever you voted for! And here's the rundown of the votes:

Freshest News: Akatuski no Yona PV



Check out the the PV for the upcoming, "Akatsuki no Yona". The anime is scheduled for an October premiere. From ANN.

And since  this is my 1001st post, did you know that there is a reverse harem in the classic One Thousand and One Nights or Arabian Nights? The story is entitled, "The Three Princes and the Princess Nouronnihar". It's about three brothers who are in a quest to find a wonderful object that will win them the princess' hand in marriage. I only stumbled upon this while helping out my son for his school project. Check out the story here.

P.S.
You can also purchase the reverse harem novels I have reviewed via the Amazon links below the popular posts. I'll truly appreciate it! I will add more as soon as I get to read and finish the books from my ever-growing readlist.
