Tid Bit: Shinmai Shimai no Futari Gohan

Shinmai Shimai no Futari Gohan by Hiiragi Yutaka is a really cute and helpful manga about family and food. Sachi and Ayari are step sisters, who ‘re left to fend for themselves while their parents travel the world on their honeymoon. Awkward and unsure of how to be at first, these girls bond over different foods and grow closer as they work together in the kitchen. Sachi, the older sibling, doesn’t know anything about cooking, but is good at academics. Ayari, is great at cooking, but sucks when it comes to her studies, so these two help each other often and balance each other out well.

When reading this, you get the cute family story, notes from the author, and full recipes of what the characters are making at the end. You also get to know the characters, their struggles, and more about different foods as they make them.

This series isn’t a Yuri, and oddly enough classified as a Shonen manga. I’m not sure this is accurate, but it’s alright. It’s also got quite a bit of subtext, but it’s your cute typical Class S manga.

Tid Bit: Rakka Ryusui

images

Sanada Ikki’s manga Rakka Ryusui is a cool 4 koma conic about a kyuudo team. It starts out with a girl who just graduated middle school and got into the high school of her choice. She goes to the school after to check her exam scores and a bunch of clubs bombard her with invitations to join. Overwhelmed by all of this, she dives into some bushes to hide. When the coast is clear, she jumps out and her fate is sealed when she meets the handsome leader of the kyuudo club. It’s all downhill from here.

This manga revolves around the crazy antics of this Kyuudo club, which includes  our main character who is head over heels for the club leader, the clueless and handsome beauty in charge of the club, a countey bumpkin with amazing hunting instincts, and a teacher who’s more childlike than the students are.

Ikki’s writing for this manga is comedy gold. It’s almost guarunteed to hit your funny bone one way or another. It reads really quick and you’ll be laughing out loud without even realizing you’re doing it.

So please pick up this manga, read, and enjoy.

PS. Sorry for not updating. We didn’t have any power for a while due to irma and we just got it back. However I definitely plan to make up for lost time. Have a great night/day you guys! Thanks for reading and stopping by.

Tid Bit: Ouji-sama Nante Iranai

221b0091e602910ca1ab71a88758d8a9

Ouji-Sama Nante Iranai by Harushion is currently an ongoing shoujo ai manga that takes place in an all girls high school called Douwa. Unfortunately, this school is divided between two groups. Botans, who are students from wealthy families, and Shak-yaku, students at school on scholarship or academics. These students are told from the start that they dislike each other. Enter our main character Yukino, a girl who decided to go to Douwa, but had to bust her butt to get in. On her first day, after finding herself in the garden area, she meets Nobara, also a first year.

Because of certain events that take place (I’m not going to spoil this story more than I already have), they become roommates. Thus shedding new light on all those people who solely believe that opposing forces have to dislike each other without reason.

This story is heartwarming, and it moves really quickly while you’re reading. I personally love the way these characters are built, and the relationships they have with each other and others. It reminds me of an incredibly tame play at romeo and juliet, and yet at the same time reminds me of some of my favorite classic Class S manga. Although they’re relationship hasn’t really developed in a romantic way, this pair is quite ship-able.

As of right now this manga is 50 chapters long, but it gets easy to get sucked in. It’s reads quickly and smoothly. I definitely recommend picking this up if you get the chance.

Enjoy.

Do you dere?

So if you’re here reading my page, than you know that we all have this one thing in common. We watch anime at some point. And being that you’re here, you may or may not be a Hime-danshi or Hime Joshi. Within anime there are different stereotypes and tropes just like any other genre.

Here we’re going to talk about four classic stereo types of modern anime.

Tsundere

When you break it down, Tsundere derives from two japanese phrases. Tsun coming from tsun tsun, meaning to turn away in disgust and dere dere, meaning to be lovestruck.  I kind of feel like the best way to describe this is like a hard candy. Hard on the outside soft on the inside. They’re a strong person or tough person, but when they’re around the person they like they become softer. But would absolutely never admit it.

Examples:

Sugiura.Ayano.full.1129249

Ayano Sugiura – Yuru Yuri

Kuudere

This is that calm cool collected person, serious and in charge, never panics, for the most part is emotionless. This person fears showing any weakness. Typically they’re monotone. When you break down this type, Kuu derrives from the english word cool. And we already learned what dere meant.

Kawapaper_Azumanga_Daioh_0000070_1152x864

Sakaki – Azumanga Diaoh

Dandere

The dan in dandere comes from the term danmari, which means silent. Or they just don’t talk out of fear of saying the wrong things. In turn, they want to be social but are quite embarassed to do so. Once they are able to make friends they’re quite happy characters that warm up to you.

Tsukasa Hiiragi from Lucky Star

Yandere

This is the most dangerous trope of them all. The first part of the word Yandere derrives from the word Yanderu, meaning to be sick. These characters are mentally sick. Love sick. The thing about Yandere is that appear to be normal on the outside, but on the inside they’re crazy. Especially when it comes to the person they like/love.

Typically there are two types.

  1. Obsessive Yandere: Wants to kill anyone that stands in the way of their love.
  2. Possessive Yandere: Kills anyone that crosses the line.

So now that we know four different genre’s of dere, which one are you? Leave a comment down below.

I would consider myself a Tsundere, but it’s not that I like you or anything…

 

Quicky: Sweet Little Devil

504014505

Sweet Little Devil is an adult series by Nanzaki Iku, that was publshed in Yuri Hime Wild Rose in 2011. The story revolves around childhood friends Sayo and Ritsuko who are two years apart in their high school. Ristuko is a 3rd year getting ready to take her college entrance exams, and Sayo is a first year whose quite outspoken. These two were separated at the end of elementary school, because Ritsuko’s family moved, and they saw each other again when they started high school. Then they became a thing. And here we are. Their story.

It’s got it’s funny cute quips. And it’s got it’s awkard moments. There’s more spice than sweetness to this manga though so be ready for it. I don’t recommend reading this at work because of it’s explicit scenes.

So check it out.

Tid Bit: Between Summer and Fall

between-summer-and-fall-22373

Between Summer and Fall is a cute story about friendship and love. It begins with the main characters meeting as kids. Ga-eul, the first main character, is named after the fall season is head over heels for Yuh-Reum, a girl that’s lively like summer. We watch as they mature into who they are, figure out what they feel, realize what they’re doing with their life, their world, and each other.

It’s not completely translated yet, or at least not to my knowledge. So if you know Korean, definitely read on! If not, read and wait until it’s updated. The characters are quite likeable. It’s funny, because they reflect their respective seasons in their behaviors. Which is quite entertaining. There are situations they get into that are little cut and dry. But they still deal with them in an interesting way. If you’re looking for a quick read this is it. But it’s a sweet one none-the-less.

So, buckle up and enjoy the ride.

Then we were waiting to find out the official date for Citrus which officially begins Winter of 2018!

Tid Bit: Gyaru Yuri

240e60dad9df4c008e35f210ed84fb33

Gyaru Yuri is a cute ongoing manga about a high school third year gyaru named Erika  and the sweet and honest elementary school girl named Yuri who is living under the same roof. Yuri and Erika’s parents are friends. They asked Erika’s mom to watch her as a favor because they had to go on a business trip overseas. And thus they become housemates taking care of each other because Erika’s mom is quite busy and not home much at all either. And thus the chaos ensues.

gyaru yuri

It’s a fast paced story that’s quite simple in nature. It’s got some character growth, but it’s a lot of fluff. Erika is boy crazy and unlucky, and Yuri loves Erika. As a sister at first, but then it grows and she likes her. It’s super cute, and it’s a quick read. So if you’re looking for something light, this is it.

So please have fun and read on!
