Barajou no Kiss

By ayreesa

"Barajou no Kiss" ("Kiss of the Rose Maiden") ongoing by Aya Shuouto

Agnes Yamamoto is afraid of lightning, thunder and her father's last words to never, ever remove the rose choker or else a punishment will befall her. I won't spoil of you what the first consequence is since only the first chapter is available, but the turn of events is surprising and very promising. This one has the flower theme too. Two anonymous visitors recommended this title. Thanks!

How do you say reverse harem in your country? I don't think there is a translation in Filipino.

"Shugo Chara"

By ayreesa

"Shugo Chara" ("Character Eggs") 51 episodes- complete

Amu is the cool and spicy transferee in Seiyo Elementary. But beneath her image is a confused and shy girl. One day she discovers three eggs or charas which will be her would-be characters when she grows up. Then she meets the Guardians who has also has charas who aims to protect students' dreams from becoming X-eggs.

I don't usually enjoy watching kiddie animes well except for 'Cardcaptor Sakura' and 'Alice Academy'. And now I can add "Shugo Chara". It's very relaxing to watch and it really does take away all of my negative energy. I also liked the cute yet cool animation and characters. It's not trying too hard to be icky girly cute. It's a long series but it never felt like it's a chore to watch. I looked forward to watching the the new charas, transformations and the combinations. Admit it you also make the 'My Heart Unlock' and 'Open…

Japanese Cover Version

"Twillight" by Stephenie Meyer

I'm sorry if I'm in a semi-hiatus state for about a couple of weeks now because I've been SO obsessed over U.S. bestseller "Twilight" sagas. The story begins with Bella moving in to Forks. She becomes dazzled and soon falls in love with a boy in her school who's actually a vampire. This is like my most favorite book series ever! I've read everything including "Midnight Sun" and outtakes that I'm about to reread it from book one again, which proves how obsessed I am considering I don't have the patience to rewatch or reread stuff. I can't seem to satiate my thirst for anything related to "Twilight". The soundtrack, the movie etc. From the time I wake up till I sleep. I'm afraid I'll scream like a crazed fangirl in the movie house. "I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him!"

There is also another reason why I'm recomme…

Freshest News: "Makino" of "Boys Over Flowers"

By ayreesa

The Korean version of "Hana Yori Dango" is titled "Boys Over Flowers" and to play the role of Makino is Goo Hye Sun as Yeon Woo.
"Hye Sun plsud Yeon Woo (Makino) who is a swimmer in a school that does not even have a swimming team. Her family operates a dry-cleaning shop which is situated just besides the legendary “Shin Hwa College”, opened only for nobles. During a trip to the college to deliver some laundry, Yeon Woo meets the four male lead and their story begins from there. Director Jeon Ki Sang explained Goo Hye Sun was chosen eventually because she fits Tsukushi’s image well, and acknowledges that the public had tossed her name around a lot as a prospective Makino when the drama was first announced. She was in fact one of the front-runners in the numerous polls." source: coolsmurf

Neo Angelique Abyss ~ Second Age

By ayreesa

Neo Angelique Abyss ~ Second Age 13 episodes

Six months after the burning of Silent Sun, Angelique finally wakes up. She must find a way to fight Erebros and save Arcadia especially Nyx. I stopped the episodic recap when the subbed version of episode 3 was delayed. It was better I guess to watch this straight to finish since it's very gloomy and depressing. The comic relief and fanservices are down to almost nothing. The bishies are the only thing that's making me watch this. Neoromance really have a thing for anti-hero/ villain and of course the obvious happy ending where she doesn't end up with someone. For the second season, the phases are replaced by acts and Angelique changed costume for a supposed fighting form. I wouldn't be a surprised if there will be a special or OVA.
