Episode 1 (here)
Episode 2 (here)
Hi people! It’s been a battle for me this past week. I have been a little busy with life and stuff, and I had a sudden gathering with friends that left me feeling woozy today, but I will try my best to finish this post!
This week’s stuff:
1. MANGA: Wish, Watashi no Ookami-san, Gakkou no Ojikan
2. DRAMA: Jigoku Shoujo Live Action
3. ANIME: Ouran High School Host Club, Beelzebub, Bleach Season 2,
4. SONG/VIDEO: Dadada (Group Tamashii)
You guys know I go overboard. I tried reading short mangas this week, but I failed and ended up reading three mangas. Two of them I haven’t finished, the other one I finished in one sitting.
Wish is a manga from CLAMP (makers of Card Captor Sakura, xxxHolic, Tsubasa Chronicles and such). The story is about the angel Kohaku who went to earth to search for the wind archangel Hisui. Kohaku was saved by Suichirou Kudou from a cat who attacked her. She wanted to grant him a wish, but being a successful doctor with everything he needed, he did not have any wish. The story has great twists and interesting characters, and I like this best for its emotional and humorous mix.
THE VERDICT: RECOMMENDED. I WOULDN’T SAY IT’S THE BEST, BUT IF YOU’RE BORED, BY ALL MEANS READ THIS.
I thought I downloaded a complete version of the manga, but I didn’t and so I am not done with this one yet. This one I highly recommend for people who like RPG and comedy, because it feels just like it when I read this.
The story is about Komomo, a hero with a Level 0 rank. She wants to build a dream house, and that is the reason why she travels to save towns in order to earn money. The demon king, Subaru, quit his demon king duties because he wants to be with Komomo, whom he admits he fell in love with.
THE VERDICT: I LOVE THIS! I LOVE MANGAS WITH A LOT OF COMEDY!
The manga is on-going so I couldn’t say whether I like the ending or not. Nonetheless, I love this manga. This made me “eeek!!”, “awwww”, “WTH?”, “OMG! OMG! OMG!” and all that excitement phrases I use. This falls under school life romance category, and the twists are really interesting. This made me smile like an idiot while reading.
THE VERDICT: IF YOU CAN TAKE SHOUJO JUST FINE, THIS IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR YOU.
Total Manga Volumes Read This Week: 13 volumes
Two words: Kazuki Kato. The guy on the farthest left is the reason why I downloaded the drama. If you check Episode 1 of this Project, I already featured Kazuki-kun in the Song/Video part. He’s not only an amazing singer, he’s a really cute actor as well! OMG. Isn’t he just the most perfect person in this world for me?
(*after about 20 minutes of fangirling and daydreaming*)
Anyways, I love the live action. I don’t love the editing of the video, and I don’t love it as much as the anime, but the anime is a fantasy anime, and the people behind the live action did their job pretty decently by selecting good actors and keeping things as close to what the anime should have been.
THE VERDICT: GO AHEAD. JUST DON’T FALL IN LOVE WITH KAZUKI-KUN. HE’S MINE.
I still have the usual Beelzebub, Bleach Season 2 on Animax, and I decided to go have some Ouran on the side. No need to do reviews here, since you guys already know what these animes are.
THE VERDICT: NOT DONE WITH ANY OF THEM. BEELZEBUB AND BLEACH ARE ON-GOING, WHILE OURAN’S NOT YET FINISHED DL-ing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND ALL THOUGH.
I am still obsessed with last week’s Movin’ and I sing it like crazy everyday, but I also love this first opening from Beelzebub. The song’s called Dadada by Group Tamashii. I love this song to bits because it sort of has the rock in it, and the video corresponding the opening in the anime suits the song really well. GYAH!!!
That’s it for this week’s Episode. If you’d like to learn more about the stuff I read, watch or listen, please follow me on Twitter @theworriedbunny and please be so kind to like the official Facebook page of this blog.
Catch you guys later!

Let me begin by saying that for this episode I might have done too much. If my calculations are correct, I should have finished at least three episode’s worth of materials. I finished a full 15-volume manga, an 11-episode series, various anime episodes and some JPOP and anime songs. I am now becoming more and more of an Otaku Girl. I think I just need some video games to complete the package.
If you did not know, my inspiration is Konata-chan.
Episode 2 Stuff:
DRAMA: Ouran High School Host Club Live Action
ANIME: Aoi Bungaku
SONG/VIDEO: Movin’ (Bleach) & We Never Give Up (Kis-My-Ft2)

I was hunting my usual download site for some manga, when I clicked this tag for Mystery mangas. I wanted really short mangas so I downloaded Spiral. For some reason, I was not interested at first because it was like Detective Conan, which is a really popular mystery anime. However, unlike Detective Conan the mystery is not solved in every volume. In fact, the story just moves around one big mystery and with sub-mysteries connected to it.
The twist at the last volume was also very intense, and I would have never thought about it. Actually I would’ve have. I kind of have a knack for analyzing mystery stories, and I kind of guessed a little rightl about some things. It was a pretty decent manga I think, especially since I spent the entire day yesterday reading it and ended up sleeping in the wee hours of the morning just to finish the last volume.
THE VERDICT: RECOMMENDED IF YOU LIKE MYSTERY SUSPENSE.
I first encountered Ouran when I watched the entire anime series (which has I think around 26 episodes). I finished the live action version in one go today. I love love love the anime, so it was also no surprise that I love the live action version as well.
I did not like the actors who played the characters as much, and I think there might be more suitable actors in appearance, but for the acting part, I think they all suited their characters well. It is a really fun series, and the set-up is a rich high school.
The main character Haruhi is a scholar at the school who had to pretend to be a guy in order to be a host, so that she could pay her debt of eight million yen. She broke the vase of the Host Club. She met friends in the host club and they go on funny adventures.
The only thing I did not really like about the live action is the fact that there were only 11 episodes. It was such a short time for such a long anime series. I would’ve wanted to see how they would interpret some of the anime versions.
THE VERDICT: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I am hearing rumors of a possible movie, and I am waiting patiently for that.
I watched a pretty decent amount of anime this week, but I can’t seem to remember all of them. They were mostly from Animax and I think this includes several episodes of Bleach and Tales of the Abyss (which I have yet to download) so I can freaking start the series because I failed to meet the 7:30 pm schedule everyday.
This week’s anime is pretty dark. I searched for a mystery anime (can you now conclude that I love the mystery genre?) and I downloaded Aoi Bungaku because it has very few episodes. I have yet to finish all, and so as far as I have watched, this is a boring anime for someone who does not like dark anime, and I was surprised that it even has a little Ecchi (adult, lewd content). It is full of symbolisms, and is so confusing especially if you do not know anything about the Japanese literature history.
I will tell you my verdict if I ever get to finish this anime. I like the dark and symbolic anime thing, but if I get even more confused, I might not actually finish this anime at all.
UPDATE (23 Jan 2012): I don’t like this at all. Did not download other eps. There are better anime in the world..
Someone posted this song on Facebook the other day. I saw the word “Bleach” so I opened it. I love songs from Bleach because they always seem very catchy and interesting, and this song is no exception. Take a look at Takacha’s Movin’
Anyway, I have two favorites this week, and the other one is not anime-related. This JPOP song We Never Give Up is from Kis-My-Ft2. I love the melody and the meaning of the song. I did study Japanese for a year so even if I don’t fully understand it, I was still able to pick up the meaning of the song. Judging from my constant anime and manga obsession, I should be good in Japanese after about 6-7 years of doing this everyday. (*sincerely hoping*)
That’s it for this week. See you guys in Episode Three!
