Bakumatsu Renka Karyuu Kenshiden



Bakumatsu Renka Karyuu Kenshiden by Kuroyurihime 2 volumes- ongoing

Shizuki Rin grew up in a dojo with bishies. The couple of chapters scanlated has a historical feel on it rather than shoujo-ish. But I saw some otome review in Liajaka's page so the manga might be.

Freshest News: Shugo Chara Manga to End



Peach-Pit confirms that the last issue of Shugo Chara will come out this December. More info from ANN.

You're Beautiful



You're Beautiful (or You're Handsome) 16 episodes

Go Mi Nyu pretends to be her twin brother and fills his spot as the newest addition of all-boy idol, A.N. Jell. The drama is not the first to mix in gender bender + showbiz type there's Idol Paradise and Cinderella Boy mangas. For the gender bender + twins set-up there's 'Secret Girl'. And of course it's predecessors in reverse harem live action are the two Hana Kimi's and Coffee Prince. But even with the tried and tested cliches the drama was able to create a refreshing take. It's not heavy on the drama per se and delivers funny scenes and original twists. I love the noodle mix dance and MTV in the fields with the boar.

The actors gave justice to their roles as idols with their looks, character acting as well as musical prowess. Lee Hong Ki and Jung Yong Hwa are real-life members of idol groups. I was betting at first for Go Min Nam - Shin Woo but you can't deny the acting charms and the chemistry between Park Shin Hye and Hwang Tae Kyung. PSH joins the ranks of Go Eun Chan and Horikita Maki in my top three favorite heroine in a hero role. I can't decide if she's pretty as a guy or handsome as a girl but I like her unpretentious acting style.

Even though it's about music, I'm not such a fan of the soundtrack. The supporting cast are great too and I like the fact that they don't have super-evil character. I haven't been this excited with a drama since Boys Before Flowers ended. I really hope it's true that there will be a second season!

Wante→D



Wante-D by Aqua Mizuto 1 volume-complete

Wante-d is composed of three stories and omake. The first one is about a girl trying to find the school thief, the second is about a girl pretending to the girlfriend of her longtime crush and the third story is about a girl who meets a deity who can grant wishes. The first two are reverse harems. Honestly, I'm not a big fan of Aqua Mizuto (of MG Garden and Milk Crown) but there are some instances that I'd liked how she drew a certain character or enjoyed a sweet or funny scene. This has been on my list for the longest time and thanks for the anonymoous tip in skribit for reminding me finally read this.

Freshest News: You're Beautiful OST



The OST of You're Beautiful is a hit which is unusual for dramas. More info from dramabeans.

Koi Suru Tenshi Angelique series and OVA



"Beloved Angelique Radiant Tomorrow" or "Koi Suru Tenshi Angelique ~ Kagayaki no Ashita ~" 12 episodes-complete

"Koi Suru Tenshi Angelique ~ Kagayaki no Ashita" OVA (30 mins)

Ange's new quest is to find the 9 guardians of Seijuu Universe. This is the sequel to Beloved Angelique When Hearts Awaken . The new set of guardians are a mix of new and old faces and each character is dedicated an entire episode. From what I can recall in comparison with the first season, this is easier to watch. Although the story is created purely to serve marketing strategy for the game it's interesting to see the bishie recruiting process. There's an OVA or special too and yes (!) Ange finally gets to pick the one she loves but the creators tried to make it a half open ending story.
