Otaku Girl: Episode 13

Otaku episodes are really hard to do! I am very sorry I am not able to update the episodes as much as I want.

MANGA: Oresama Teacher

DRAMA: Fugoh Keiji

ANIME: Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko

SONG/VIDEO: Kana Nishino – Go for it! (Full album)

♥♥♥♥♥

MANGA

If there’s a manga I would not mind being made into anime, it is probably this one. Oresama Teacher is a really nice school life story. It talks about how one person can change for the better and how we deal with our darkness.

While this is just comedy gold, the manga has dealt with some pretty serious issues – a person’s image, a person’s past, real friendship, standing up for what is right, taking care of a family legacy, etc.

The story is focused on Kurosaki Mafuyu, a delinquent leader who gets expelled from her school. She transfers to a school far away from her hometown and decides to be a girly-girl on the first day of school to get rid of her old image, but fails. She meets Saeki Takaomi, a school teacher who was her childhood friend, and is probably the reason why she became a delinquent.

Takaomi forms a disciplinary club in hope of doubling the school population, a bet he made with the chairman to get the school property (which is actually his grandfather’s) back. Mafuyu is dragged into the club, as well as her new friend and classmate, Hayasaka.

The student council, headed by the grandson of the school chairman, plots to do everything in their power to stop the club. The story revolves around how the student council members take turns in getting the club to disband.

I love the drawing and the story of the manga! I highly recommend this to everyone!

DRAMA

Among all my Jdrama collection, I have probably seen Fugoh Keiji the most. It has two seasons, but I like Season 1 the most.

The drama is one of the reasons why I am such a big Fukada Kyoko fan. She is just too cute!

The drama is about Kanbe Miwako, a billionaire police officer who uses her grandfather’s riches to solve crimes.

If you guys know me, I like crime stories the most! (See Episode 5 and 6 for Kurosagi – a great crime series too!)

I highly recommend this drama to anyone who wants to see a crime story solved so cutely! MOE~

ANIME

This is a recently completed anime – about last month I think [?]. I enjoyed the anime so much I finished it in a day.

The story is about Yokodera Yoto, a high school boy who is unable to speak out his perverted thoughts. He heard of a rumor that a Stony Cat statue in a the hill of the town will take something you do not need and grant a wish. The night he went to make a wish, he meets Tsutsukakushi Tsukiko, a girl whose wish is for her emotions to not show easily. They get their wishes, but after a day, they are not happy about it and want to take it back. The rule for the wish is what they don’t need the statue would give to someone else so they must now find the person who got the qualities they lost.

I highly recommend this anime to shoujo fans. It is funny as hell. The ending was surprising too.

SONG/VIDEO

I had this single sitting in my laptop for months! How could I ignore Kana Nishino! My favorite is track two, Talk to Me, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. Here’s a live version of the main track, Go for It!

This was released in Summer 2012, but it is still a pretty cool summer song. I have been listening to the three tracks in the single for two days now and I have not gone tired of it yet. I highly recommend this to everyone!

That’s it for this episode. Hope you guys like it!

Andy :)

P.S. I planned the episodes so I have until Episode 16 written and ready for publishing. I will be publishing once a week. Until then, ciao!~

The last episode of KamiHaji is nice, but quite disappointing. Nanami realizes that she’s running away from a place that she considers home. When she gets there, she dances what she practiced in the previous episode, kagura, a dance to dispel miasma. She does so gracefully and successfully dispels evil and turns everything back to its normal, pristine state.

The festival also is a success since there are a lot of people who came to celebrate. In the very end, Tomoe kisses Nanami saying that he wants to the contract from his heart.

 vlcsnap-2013-01-13-16h59m15s246

Although I find the ending heartwarming, it’s quite disappointing that KamiHaji has come to an end. After research, I found that KamiHaji is an ongoing manga. Here’s to hoping for a second season sometime this year!

My Tomoe’s mad face. (^///^)

Episode 12 is a lot more complicated than other episodes. Here you have Nanami hearing bad things about the shrine from townspeople. To make it appealing, she decides to hold a fall festival. To present something, she scavenges Mikage’s storage room, but did not find anything useful. She did however, slightly open a box, which I do not know what contains.

 vlcsnap-2013-01-13-16h18m26s72

Mikage’s deity friend is revealed to be the cause of Nanami’s many tests. In this episode, he/she wanted to test her again and scatters a thick miasma in the air of the shrine. Nanami tries to dispel it, but to no success. The idiot Tomoe tells Nanami she is not needed in the dispelling while he and Mizuki tries to do it. Nanami takes it into heart and leaves the shrine.

 vlcsnap-2013-01-13-16h13m33s216

The next episode is the last episode. I’m really curious about whether Nanami would stay as a deity or not. I also feel that there are still a lot of unresolved things that needs to be given point. Whatever is gonna happen in the next ep?

Kdrama in Focus: Rooftop Prince

I realize I am a bit late with this drama review for Rooftop Prince, the show having been shown since the first quarter of 2012. However, you guys should note that this is the only year that I started watching Kdramas as I originally only watch Jdramas. I started this year with Arang and the Magistrate and My Girlfriend is a Gumiho because I really liked Shin Minah. For choosing Rooftop Prince, I have quite the similar reason. I really like Park Yoochun.

vlcsnap-2013-01-05-19h28m01s219How the hell do you say no to this? Yoochun is like the cutest when he smiles! But he’s really cute when he’s mad or irritated too.

THE STORY

vlcsnap-2013-01-05-19h38m51s78It starts off with the prince (Yoochun) Lee Gak finding out that the Crown Princess had been murdered. Because this is so, he hires three men who had been brushed off by society to help him – Man Bo, a very intelligent man to investigate; Yong Seul, a very strong man to protect him; and Chi San, a good information broker. For some reason, from the Joseon period, they get to the year 2012.

In the present era, they meet Park Ha, a vendor who dreams of opening her own fruit store. Since they lived in the Joseon era, they find the future strange.

The Prince is supposed to look for the Crown Princess’ reincarnation in the present era, but in the twist of fate, he falls in love with Park Ha. He still has to solve the mystery of the crown Princess’ murder, but as he is in the present, he has to solve the mystery of why he was sent in the present era, specifically the attempt to murder his reincarnated self, Yong Tae Yong.

vlcsnap-2013-01-05-19h38m29s108This drama made me want to eat Omurice more often. It’s pretty simple to create and it has been known to be the favorite food of the Prince and his servants in the present era. I think Rooftop Prince has made Omurice a pretty popular dish in the real world. :3

DO I RECOMMEND THIS DRAMA? Absolutely. There are a lot of twists in this drama, it was mind-boggling! There were a lot of predictable points in the drama, but it wasn’t anything I couldn’t handle. Finally, I’m not saying this just because I like Yoochun, but I really think his acting is superb. He can cry at any impulse! The other actors are really great too. I think this is one of the main reasons why the drama is hyped!

The one thing I didn’t like too much is the ending. It was quite confusing?

Anyways, I will definitely try to have more dramas to watch this 2013. Any recommendations?

By Episode: Kamisama Hajimemashita (Episode 11)

vlcsnap-2012-12-26-18h53m56s173

Episode 11 is divided into two again. The first part is focused on Miyuki’s attempt to do a bit of “research” on the present human life in order to relate better to Nanami. He had mishaps, but in the end he realizes it’s not about what he knows, but about his liking to serve Nanami.

vlcsnap-2012-12-26-18h56m57s191

The second part tells of how Nanami and Tomoe went on an unofficial date. They rode the roller coaster where Nanami saw Tomoe’s genuinely happy face for the first time. Earlier, Nanami saw a beautiful pin which she suspected was Yukiji’s. Due to her jealousy, she created a ruckus between her and Tomoe. In the end though, they made up and rode the ferris wheel.

 vlcsnap-2012-12-26-19h05m42s65

I feel like I finally understand the part where Mikage healed Tomoe’s wounds. It seems like he erased Tomoe’s memories of Yukiji since Tomoe appeared to not recognize who Yukiji is. Nanami, as an ever slow person, must’ve thought that Tomoe simply didn’t like living in the past.

Ah! The first part of the episode is simply wonderful. Mizuki is my favorite character in KamiHaji and I saw more of his cute side in this episode. I also saw more Mizuki-Kurama interaction and my fujoshi fantasies are in wonderland with that eating part!

Please see other episode reviews in the by episode page.
