What is My Youth Romantic Comedy is Wrong as I Expected?

Volume 1 Volume 1

Synopsis: Hachiman Hikigaya is a cynic. “Youth” is a crock, he believes–a sucker’s game, an illusion woven from failure and hypocrisy. But when he turns in an essay for a school assignment espousing this view, he’s sentenced to work in the Service Club, an organization dedicated to helping students with problems in their lives! How will Hachiman the Cynic cope with a job that requires–gasp!–optimism?

Ghost Hunt [Manga]: A fun, quick read

A Fandom of its Own

I decided to review the mystery/supernatural manga Ghost Hunt (1998-2010) for this review. Originally published as light novels, written by Fuyumi Ono, the stories were adapted into a manga of 12 volumes by Shiho Inada.

Ghost Hunt

What’s it about?

Mai Taniyama and her friends enjoy telling ghost stories, many of them stemming from the old, abandoned building at their high school. One night they are interrupted by Kazuya Shibuya, a handsome, 17 year old paranormal investigator who has been called in by the school principal to investigate the building. The next day, Mai curiously wanders into the building, accidentally interfering with Kazuya’s investigation, and inadvertently breaking a video camera and injuring Kazuya’s assistant, Lin Koujo. Kazuya demands that Mai work in Lin’s place to pay back the cost of the video camera. In the process, he is nicknamed ‘Naru’ (from ‘narcissist’) by Mai, which ends up sticking. With the school building proving…

Manga Monday: Corpse Party: Blood Covered

Eye Sedso

How the hell did I start reading this? No idea, but I’ve already caught up with everything that’s been released so far. Here’s what I think.

Corpse Party: Blood Covered

Corpse Party: Blood Covered is about a group of high school friends in Kisaragi Academy. Kisaragi Academy was built on the grounds of Tenjin Elementary School, which was demolished after a string of disappearances and gruesome murders. After a mysterious earthquake, the students find themselves trapped in an alternate reality Tenjin Elementary School, where the murders of others trapped before them have continued unabated… -summary via Manga Fox

Wow I LOVE my new process of just copying and pasting summaries from other sites. It makes everything easier, clearer, and it gives me time to give my views on the manga instead of wasting time trying to talk about what the manga’s about, which is just what I’m gonna do!

chariots are reborn… <3

visual ioner

This news were already announced a couple of month ago and I mentioned it on visual ioner Facebook, but I think it’s time to make a blog post about it as well. It’s great news for people like me who are Riku-fans. Personally I think he has one of the most beautiful voices and I think most of you knows him from bands like Phantasmagoriaand LIN (凛).

The news is that his band “chariots” are back! They began their journey already back in 2007 but has slumbered into inactivity from time to time. However, this time I hope they’re back to stay active for a long time, even though some of the members are active in other bands as well. Let’s take a look at the lineup and profile! (And don’t forget to check out the music videos below!)
