‘Kyoko Hori is a bright and popular high school student, in contrast to her classmate Izumi Miyamura, a gloomy and seemingly nerdy boy.’

A lovely one.
One of the first reviews I start with a one-liner I know already. 😄
Hello, dearies! 💖
Horimiya is one of those that I first watched the anime then read the manga, but it’s alright, you can do it like that as well, there’s not much difference in the story, except for the ending of the Manga, that’s a plus for us readers.
I’ll jump right in.

“In my opinion, giving a kiss is a much better prize than receiving one.”
This one is long overdue.
Manga: Maid Sama! (Japanese: 会長はメイド様!, Hepburn: Kaichō wa Meido-sama!, “The Class President Is a Maid!”)
Author: Hiro Fujiwara
Anime: Maid-sama (Kaichou wa Maid-Sama!) on Hulu
Genre: Romance, Comedy, Shojo, Young Adult
Hello, dearies! I watched Maid Sama! a long time ago, it seems it was ages past but more like ten years ago. It made me want to re-watch it.
After watching it, I was in a frenzy because I wanted to know what else had happened since, as with many anime, you don’t quite know what happens in the end and you don’t get the whole story. There are very few that follow the original story, this is a bookish (readers) problem that we often find the adaptations to be lacking in some way. But with anime, you get a little more excited and can watch calmly.

Who is your favourite male character in a Manga? Check out some of mine. 💓
With Valentine’s day coming closer, I decided to do a special on characters, but not any male characters but the ones from Manga because they made your heartthrob the most. At least in this particular case, with these specific characters. 💓
Now, I say it’s from any genre, but the common denominator is some kind of romance.
As of the next lines, pardon my fangirling all over the place. Let’s begin!

If you are here, I am going to assume that you know about Sekaiichi and Junjou Romantica because I know that not everyone watches these animes or reads the Manga. Today is about the Manga, and a little bit about the Anime, a bit of a comparison might be seen further ahead.

Who does not know about Sakura Kinomoto, right? In some capacity, you know her or have seen her at one point or another in your life. I’d like to clarify, this is about the manga but the anime is of course what made us start loving everything about this world.

Another one. I am sure you know this one. If you are a fan of Anime, Yaoi or Romance, or all of them together then you certainly have watched, heard about, read about or seen anything related to Junjo Romantica (Junjou Romantica in Spanish). I’ll make it quick.

Hello, dearies! ❤️
This one is late by a lot, though not so much considering that this is ongoing. Alright, it is a Manga as you might have guessed by the name and it is still going, and it is completely amazing.
I cannot be sure that any of you read Manga but if you do then you would love this one, do not let the element of sports throw you off, it is actually pretty cool and it is not the only thing the story is about. I cannot really remember how I got to it but I know that after the first two chapters I was completely hooked and Naruse is so great.
