Completed Series… not L-DK

Wow, so many series that I posted about have finally finished, like Aoharaido and Hirunaka no Ryuusei… but not L-DK. That series is going on 17 volumes, wth!? I really thought that it would have finished by now. I actually stopped reading this manga a while back. However, I’m still buying the books, so one day I will start up again. I may just start from the very beginning to enjoy the whole series from scratch.

Aoharaido: It ended… even though I hoped and suspected that Futaba would end up you-know-who (don’t want to spoil it for the one person who may not know yet, lol), I did worry about the outcome. Strobe Edge is still my favorite manga of Sakisaka-sensei, but Aoharaido is a pretty close second. I am looking forward to her new series, and hopefully we will hear more about it over the next couple of months. Speaking of Strobe Edge, I ended up buying the April 2015 issue of Betsuma… why? because of the Strobe Edge special chapter. 🙂 I am such a sucker when it comes to Strobe Edge, lol. I can’t wait to watch the Strobe Edge live-action movie online. If it’s a pretty good adaptation, I may buy the DVD version. Plus it doesn’t hurt that Sota Fukushi, who plays Ren, is easy on the eyes. 😉

Hirunaka no Ryuusei: I kind of lost interest in this manga, but I do have all the volumes through 11. Since volume 12 is the last one, I will buy it to complete the series. I accidentally found out who she ended up with though, so unfortunately the ending won’t be a surprise when I finally read it. However, I am somewhat interested on what occurred up to that point, so I plan to continue reading the manga someday soon. I’m not sure if I will keep the series though… maybe I will try to sell it on eBay.


New manga series

Here’s a list of new manga that I started reading recently:

– Hachimitsu ni Hatsukoi (Minase Ai): New series published in Sho-Comi. Typical shoujo story about childhood friends, but it’s cute. Chibi Manga is translating it.
– Orange (Takano Ichigo): New series published in Betsuma. Interesting and bittersweet story about a girl who receives a letter from herself 10 years in the future, detailing events that happened and what she wished happened instead. Bxsmanga is translating it.
– Ouji to Hero (Yamada Daisy): Newer series published in Nakayoshi. Very shoujo-ish with two bishie boys and a cute, but not very smart girl from the countryside. Chibi Manga is translating it.
– Seishun Location (Tajima Mimi): New series published in Margaret. Cute story with a probable love triangle between a cute girl, her good-looking guy (childhood) friend, and a geeky, recluse from their class. Chibi Manga is translating it.
– Kore ga Koi to Iunaraba (Aikawa Saki): New series published in Margaret. Interesting story about a girl who decides to attend high school far away from where she lives because she’s tired of being compared with her perfect sister and wants to have an enjoyable school life. Chibi Manga is translating it.
