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 chemis…

Happy Thanksgiving!

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.
