Year 2015 in Review

                         

It's already 2016.  I didn't finish this post yesterday and I accidentally deleted the draft post and I had to redo it. But as they say, better late than never! Let's take a look with what happened last year with the trends and highlights of the year.

Merry Christmas!

Here's a roundup of Christmas greetings from your favorite reverse harem titles. I'm sorry I wasn't able to post a new set of 12 days of Christmas reverse harem now that I have given birth. I was really looking forward to it. For now, enjoy the last year's version in the featured post above. Merry Christmas to you and your families!

Manga Review: Savage Garden


Savage Garden by Hyeon Sook Lee- Volume 7-complete

Gabriel is an orphan who impersonates her friend, Jeremy in an all-boy boarding school in England set in the 18th-ish century. But this is not your usual gender bender. We are all too familiar with all the tricks involved in gender bender titles where the boys are unaware of the protagonist's true sexual identity in the likes of Hana Kimi, You're Beautiful and Sungkyunkwan Scandal etc. But this one takes all the fun elements then spins it with dramatic and darker flair. There's also mature and BL themes. Not for kiddies.

Here are some unconfirmed reverse harem that are currently airing:


"Tantei Team KZ Jiken" Thanks to anonymous tip. Here's the synopsis from ANN:
Aya Tachibana is a sixth-grader who frets and obsesses over friends, family, grades, and more. One day, she joins the "Tantei Team KZ" with four very idiosyncratic boys she met at cram school. There is the glib and attention-grabbing leader Kazuomi Wakatake, the mysterious "expert of personal relationships" Takakazu Kuroki, the smart and stoic math genius Kazunori Uesugi, and the sweet-hearted Kazuhiko Kozuka who is good at social matters and science. Aya finds her place among them as the "language expert." "Tantei Team KZ" gets involved in modern-day cases, and even if they bicker from time to time, they collaborate by pooling each of their talents and skills to solve these cases.



"Bromance"- Here's the synopsis from Viki:
Could anyone be more excited to reach her 25th birthday? Pi Ya Nuo (Megan Lai) had an inauspicious start to her life. When she was born 25 years ago, her parents and extended family – along with their fortuneteller – eagerly awaited her arrival in the delivery room so that they could bless the beginning of the Pi family’s heir. Upon hearing her first cry, the fortuneteller predicted on the spot that the baby boy would be a great success and a natural-born leader. But when the nurses announce that the baby is a girl, the stunned fortuneteller immediately announces that the girl would not survive her childhood unless she lives as a boy for the first 25 years of her life. Only then can Ya Nuo change her bad fate and bring prosperity to her family. On her 25th birthday, Ya Nuo can go back to her true gender without any repercussions. Doomed to live her life as a boy, Ya Nuo is shy and always tries to keep her distance to people to hide her true identity, and the mysterious aloofness makes her irresistible to the girls around her. One day, she accidentally helps out Du Zi Feng (Baron Chen), who happens to be a triad leader, and his sister, Du Zi Han (Mandy Tao). While Zi Han falls in love with Ya Nuo, Zi Feng becomes Ya Nuo’s “sworn brother” and best friend. With her 25th birthday fast approaching, will Ya Nuo find her much-anticipated return to being a female will be as easy as she had hoped?

Manga Review: Kindan Princess


Kindan Princess (Volume 1-complete) story by Satoko Satsuki and art by Jun Nanase

Momoka's mother asked four boys in her school to seduce her daughter. Yep, just one line and twelve words to describe the plot of a smutty manga. It's the second story in the manga and composes of two chapters only. I haven't read smut in a long time. Here I was, just innocently aiming to read a completed manga and tada!  How could a mother do this to her daughter?  But in the brighter side of things, the first story is much more disturbing and not a reverse harem, by the way. I'm sorry for this very short review! haha Not for minors, okay?!
