Reviews: あの子が彼を好きな理由 ~Ano ko ga Kare o Suki na Riyuu~ (ミリオンコミックス CRAFT SERIES 45)

AAAH. Finally! An update! Sorry if I update so slow. m(_ _)m

Anyway! “Ano ko ga Kare o Suki na Riyuu” is Mieno Saori’s 3rd tankoubon release. Well, 2nd to be precise since her “Hakumokuren ga Saita nara” is under a different author but she did the illustrations. Also, Ano ko ga Kare o Suki na Riyuu was earlier published in HertZ but later released in tankoubon form by CRAFT. Hrm. (.__.)

Let me just say that no words can describe how I felt when I read this. I couldn’t stop crying while reading every bit of the story. When I first ordered this early last month, I expected the story to be nothing but ordinary but when I finished reading it, it was more than what I truly expected. Well, the plot is quite typical but Mieno Saori managed to add an amazing twist to it which really made my heart stop in every scene. It’s very dramatic and the illustrations are very, let’s say, realistic, or matured-looking I can’t say the right term. OTL

Okay onto the plot!

Aoi Seri + Nakamura Asumiko + finally got my orders

I was browsing through some icon journals at LiveJournal (yes, I came back to LJ recently) and a certain illustration caught my attention – Aoi Seri’s art. I once again, fell in love with a great artist. (*A*) I am currently browsing her blog right now and all of her drawings look great. I haven’t read any of her works, though.

See for yourselves. CLICK

Oh and just now, I found something interesting. It seems Fuuko (hazukashiikedo) has a review on one of Aoi Seri’s work before! \(*A*)/ CLICK

Moving on, I also stumbled upon Nakamura Asumiko’s works a while ago. Although I don’t really know what happened, it seems she’s on hiatus right now. Will try reading her Doukyuusei and Double Mints later.

What I have been doing last night:

My usual OCs (original characters). Yes, I know they look so common especially Takagi-sensei (the one with the glasses). He was actually inspired by Nagi from Amagi Reno’s Oni ni Hatsujou. I already drew him before although in my other drawing, he looks much matured. See it here in my tumblr blog.

Not yet finished. Unfortunately, I have no intentions of finishing it – or maybe I will but it will take months for me to decide, lol.

Hello everyone! Meet Aki and Saigo. As you can see, Aki’s hair isn’t done yet. (.__. ) Saigo’s expression still needs improvement, and overall, I still have to ink and color it. I think I’ll be finishing this one. (ーー;)

It finally arrived! (@_@)

I still have 2 orders lined up for delivery tomorrow. I can’t wait to read these later. (T▽T)

Japan + fail ordering + what I’m expecting this month

First of all, I want to say that I’m terribly saddened to hear about the current situation in Japan. I was informed about it by my dad and step-mom last Friday. They told me how the tsunami destroyed every house and building in Honshu. I had goosebumps just by imagining it that time. A while ago, I finally had the time to watch TV and I immediately tuned into CNN. I really cried when I saw how the tsunami destroyed different places and how many lives were taken because of it. So please, let us all pray for Japan’s recovery. I’m sure there are a lot of easy ways on how to donate. So please do if you can.

Only for Filipinos:

Filipinos who wish to help earthquake- and tsunami-stricken Japan may send their monetary donations via text message to the Philippine Red Cross, the humanitarian organization’s secretary-general Gwendolyn Pang said Sunday.

People who wish to donate must type on their mobile phones ‘RED AMOUNT’ and send the message to 2899 (Globe) or 4483 (Smart).

Globe subscribers may also send donations through the G-Cash transfer scheme by typing ‘DONATE (space) AMOUNT (space) 4-digit M-PIN (space) REDCROSS’ and then sending the message to 2882.

The Philippine Red Cross website also lists donation schemes through PayPal, cash or check, or bank deposits.

Okay, so serious topic aside, I’m want to share how I failed to order in Amazon.jp the other day – I actually forgot the due payment, lol. I hope they’ll let me order it again. (T▽T)

Alongside that first order of mine, I ordered 4 new items and this time, I used a debit card to be sure. ( ̄ー ̄)

These are the titles I ordered:

Hopefully, I’ll be able to finish reading them all by the end of this month so I can make a review already. (*´▽`*)
