Christmas on July 24th Avenue

It’s our first holiday season as husband and wife. Aww. I know. We are a lazy couple. We are planning to laze around until tonight’s dinner and Christmas Eve service. We just rolled around our bed watching reruns of the Master Chef two final episodes as my mother in law’s maids were cleaning our condo. When our pizza delivery arrived, we moved to the living room for lunch.

Christmas on July 24th Avenue

We finished lunch and James had a food coma. He gestured me to scoot over and started snuggling on the couch with his head on my lap. I flipped through the channel and caught the beginning of ‘Christmas on July 24th Avenue‘. I thought watching a Japanese Christmas romantic comedy at this moment was kind of cute.

Blue by Sasaki Io

A mild cold has overcome me these last couple of days. I had to take a break from reading manga and went straight to sleep. I got woken up quite early tho, around 6 AM, to my sis’ Accapella Flight of the Bumblebee alarm which kept on going and going while she was in the shower. I tried to ignore it, but I couldn’t fall back to sleep. So, I had my breakfast and medicine, then made up my missing manga routine from last night.

I found a newly completed one scanlated manga called Blue by Sasaki Io. The story is quite sweet and it was a great manga to start my day, especially after I just got off from the One Piece marathon :) .

Newest Manga from Yoshihara Yuki – Venus ni Arazu

Aerandrica Scans got the freshest title from my favorite smut genre, Yoshihara Yuki scanlated. Yay!

Yes, of course I read Venus ni Arazu right away when I found them, even though it was like 1AM. Geez.. sleep is for the weak :D

Venus in Arazu’s synopsis from Aerandria Scans:

Misyoshi Yoshiko is working her way as a model by doing various modeling gigs for her agency. After one of those gigs causes her to lose her job as a model, she now faces a desperate situation of being broke and unemployed. Things start to look up when she gets offered another modeling job, but this time it’s modeling for Chuujou Tarou, the lecherous sculptor who got her fired in the first place! How will Yoshiko handle working for a perverted employer who can’t keep his hands off her–not because he’s attracted to her, but because he likes her bone structure?!

10 Manhwa & Manhua That Hime Loves, And You (Boys & Girls) Should Give a Chance

For years, Japanese manga has been my preference compared to Chinese (Taiwanese) manhua and Korean manhwa. One of the important component of a comic is the art, and most Chinese (Taiwanese) and Korean ones generally have ‘rougher’ drawings compared to the Japanese manga. I couldn’t get into the stories either for some reason.

Back in 2006, Entropy, the group which I was scanlating under released a Korean manhwa ‘The Bride of the Water God.’ This manhwa, blew me away with its art and plot. In the same year ShoujoMagic also released a wondeful Taiwanese manhua, ‘The One’. Both of these manhwa/manhua really changed my opinion regarding the capabilities of Korean and Taiwanese mangaka.

Since then, there has been an increase of scanlated Chinese manhua and Korean manhwa circulating around the web; revealing variety of genres, art style and themes. I have also have taken a liking to a number of Korean manhwa and Taiwanese manhua in variety of genres; shoujo, josei, shounen and seinen.

Favorite Forbidden Love Mangas: Teacher – Student

I finally sit my butt down and compose the second part of my favorite forbidden love manga list. This time I am going to go over a story which revolves around student-teacher romantic relationship. When I say revolves, it means the main theme. There are a number of great manga which contains student teacher romance as a supporting part of the story, such as Hot Gimmick, Fruits Basket, Gokusen and Loveless. I am not including them on my list. And of course this list is only for scanlated manga.
