Just so you know, I am an avid reader of Case Closed (Detective Conan), and sometimes One Piece. However, I also enjoy reading shoujo mangas! I’m rather picky though. I only tend to read mangas by Ashihara Hinako, Usami Maki, Sakisaka Io, and Kouichi Kaede. So yeah, I don’t just read any shoujo manga. But of course, I love suggestions, so you’re perfectly welcome to give me any. *Smiley face* So anyway, here, I’m going to tell you why I specifically love these mangakas.
The first work that I’ve read from her is called SOS, and I fell in love with the artwork and stories instantly. The stories she makes are rather serious, and very realistic, but at the same time they have funny, lightweight bits in it. The second story in that book is called Organ, and I laughed, and cried, and thought about the story for some time.. she is one wonderful mangaka. I don’t think she’s making any new works as of now, though. Sad.. Please write another story!
Best work: I can’t pick any!! They’re all so good. *_* But okay, Chouchou Kumo. No, SOS. No, Pinky Promise. No, Konbini S! NO THEY’RE ALL GOOD!!
Again, she makes mangas of roughly the same genre as Ashihara Hinako. Serious, but funny at the same time. Only I have to say I like Usami Maki’s artwork better. *grins* But they’re both really good, and I love both of them equally. I love every single Usami Maki’s work. I don’t think there’s any of them that I dislike. I know that she’s not making any new ones as of now, but I haven’t finished reading Kokoro Botan, and so that’s the manga that I’m currently reading now.
Best work: Haruyuki Bus, hands down! Woot! The best manga ever. And maybe Sakura Rhythm. But no, Haruyuki Bus is the best.
Mm, there’s not much to say about her because I’m relatively new to her work, and besides I’ve never read any of her previous works before. I’m currently reading Love So Life, and I have to say, it’s an amazing manga. Very cute as well. I guess her genre is different from Ashihara Hinako and Usami Maki, since Love So Life is a very light-read manga, and it gives you this warm fuzzy feeling afterwards, and it’s very, very, cute. It’s about this high-school girl who babysits these twins who live with their reporter uncle (who’s so darn good looking). And the twins are just so adorable!! >.< And I’m thinking some romance will spark between the uncle and the high-school girl. Oh, and the uncle isn’t even that old. Cuties.
Best work: Err, Love So Life! (It’s the only one I’ve read so, lol)
Yes. I’m saving the best for last, of course. Sakisaka Io is LOVE! I don’t know what else to say anymore. Strobe Edge has got to be the best manga out there. The best. The heroine is just so adorable and pure, and the hero is.. COMPLETELY HEAVENLY LOOKING IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY. I.. I.. I don’t even know what to say! Speechless. The artwork is love. The stories are love. Everything, about Sakisaka Io, is love. I guess her genre is in between Usami-Ashihara and Kouichi. The stories aren’t as serious as Usami-Ashihara, but definitely more serious than Kouichi. I don’t know. But I guess the works are more or less like Usami Maki, but not so much either. WAIT. WHAT AM I EVEN SAYING. I don’t make sense. Anyway.
Oh, however, I don’t particularly like her old works, because her artwork was different, but her present work. Is. Love. I’m currently reading her latest work called Aoharaido and so far, it’s love. I can’t wait for Chapter 2 I just can’t!! I’m so obsessed!! I have a feeling it’s going to be even more amazing than Strobe Edge. Which is definitely hard to believe because Strobe Edge is the definition of love.
Best work: Strobe Edge, like duh! ..Or maybe Aoharaido, hmm, we’ll see.
So that’s it, you guys! I like some works by Takasuka Yue (Good Morning Call) and I’m also checking out works by Haruta Nana, so maybe I’ll review them later. Thanks for reading!
