Barairo My Honey

This one is one really sweeet manga. I liked it. The art is great, if you're like me that is. ehehe It's similar to Midnight Secretary. And the manga is not that long too; 13 chapters with 2 extras. Just nice.
Our guy is really hot (and cute:P) and our gal is misleading. hehe meaning that she looks sweet and innocent but has a strong heart. She's also very shrewd. grins. add to these, there's a cute tiger. Wonder what this is about?Read the manga hehehe
Well, this series has everything in it. good looks, romance, humor and a little bit of action though not much. It's nice to see our guy jealous hehe He's too robotic, always suppressing his emotions so seeing those little feelings on him is like wowww. hehe I read it long ago before, but I read it a second time too recently. Was too lazy to write about it and only doing so now since I'm in the mood. grins oh well, hope you enjoy this series. You can find it on onemanga by the way and it's complete and online for free.^_^

Dream Saga (manga)

I just finished reading this manga. It's more of a fantasy, adventure based fairy tale. If you're the type that don't really like cute shojo mangas, then maybe this might not really be your cup of tea though I personally enjoyed it myself. Initially, I just wanted to pass time but as it went on, it became even better.
It's kind of hard to summarise what the manga is about but I'll try. Our main protagonist is a girl who is able to go back and forth from the human world to the dream world. Basically, she needs to save both worlds with the help of five (I think) other friends who are able to go back and forth as well.
The art is average I guess, though I did like it. But the good thing is, not only does it have action, it also has comedy, romance and a fantasy feeling. Thus, it's a fantasy series. hehe And if you guys don't really like your manga to be really long, then this might be for you as well. It only has till 27 chapters or 5 volumes. You can find this manga online at mangafox. It's complete. Hope you all enjoy this.

Why Why Love (taiwanese drama)

I just finished watching this series. It's another one that stars Mike He, Rainie Yang and Kingone. I found the storyline ok, it was quite different from usual. I was quite surprised by how the story turned out near the end actually. It was really moving.
Basically, our female lead is a boring type of girl who has to endure hardships just to pay off a huge debt left behind by her late father. She has no life whatsoever. Thus, her best friend decides to help her out. And so, due to her friend's meddling, she becomes involved with the two rich brothers. And there our story starts.
I was initially wondering whether to watch this series or not but then, decided to try as I did like the leads. I was quite happy with it overall. Mike was a little different here than he was in devil beside you. Of course, both are different roles but sometimes, I saw a little of his devil looks hehe and Rainie also called him devil in this series. His character had more emotions here I felt. And he showed them nicely. Rainie was as usual really great. She looked cute too.^_^:P But I was wondering why she had nearly the same hairstyle here and also in devil beside you and campus shrewd. But oh well, I'm not one who looks at all that, so it doesn't really matter to me. Kingone was the serious one in the show and I really felt for his character. At times, I felt like rooting for him as well. So I'm quite surprised that in real life, he's actually quite a comic. And I found this out from the 'backstage episodes':P They show some parts after some episodes and those are the ones that I enjoyed the most. It's so hilarious and I'm lucky that they have it subbed in english hehehe If not, I wouldn't understand much of what was going on, though it would look funny.
Well you can find this in mysoju for sure. Maybe in youtube and veoh as well. Not too sure about crunchyroll though as those usually have more of japanese and korean shows only. And they're not titled so it's hard to know which is taiwanese and which is japanese and so on. Enjoy!!!

Devil Beside You (taiwanese drama)

After pondering for so long on whether to watch this series or not, (don't get me wrong, I'd already read the manga that's why) I finally decided to give it a go and I wasn't disappointed. I enjoyed myself immensely and had a good laugh too.
Rainie Yang and Mike He play the main leads well. The female lead finally decides to confess to her crush, a basketball captain, but when she does it, she finds out she did it to another guy instead. And that's a really troublesome guy too. Of course, after some events they fall in love as usual but it's the process and all that captivates you. And there is a problem for them. It turns out that they're actually going to be siblings instead!!!-_-" Well, and so the story goes.
The story is quite unique in that it's not often, 'siblings' fall in love kind of situation is on. There was one with ken chu titled marmalade boy. I haven't watched that drama but finished the manga as well. Also, the leads as well as their friends were really cool and good to watch. What made it even more fun was after every episode, they usually showed the ngs(no good takes) and all. It was hilarious. It made the actors seem...'human'? lol normal I mean.
I notice that a lot of people find Mike handsome. Well he is of course, but at times, I find him alright I guess.(sorry:P) But he is a good actor. He seems to be able to let out his tears quite easily. This one I knew from another series that he's in, Why Why Love. Kingone is in it too, he's the basketball captain by the way and he did a great job as well. In fact, some of his scenes were quite comic too. hehe I'll tell you more about that next time. I'm watching it right now actually. kk You can find this one online as well but I watched this on youtube instead of mysoju cos I think downloading was quite long there I think. I forgot hehe Anyway enjoy!!!
