My Queen (taiwanese drama)

This drama is actually incomplete but i was tempted by the title so i clicked on it. And i liked the short summary as well and so decided to give it a go. It didn't disappoint me. In fact, i can't wait for more episodes to be uploaded. It seems to be a new drama as the film date says january and this series stars ethan ruan and cheryl yang.
Our main lady is really touchy regarding her age. She's 33. She meets our main hero through a series of events and is even more pissed off when she finds out that he's 8 years her junior. He's 25^_^ Also, our lady being a really tough nut to crack, she's really fierce, capable, competitive and all, it's easy to say that she's not really that well liked.
I decided to watch this series mainly because it's nice to see a younger guy liking an older lady. Pure love^_^(romantic heart speaking here) Both the leads do justice to their roles. I have to admit initially, I didn't really like the actress as I didn't really know her that well. I had just heard of her name but after watching this, she did the role nicely i felt. I didn't like her character's behaviour at first too, she thought she was the best and didn't think about others' feelings. but she seems to gradually change due to the 'lil devil' as she thinks of him hehe
Well, i guess there are many more episodes to come as well as obstacles to their 'growing love' in the future. tht's what a drama is all about. jus click on the title on my blog if you're interested.

Kodocha (manga)

I loved it! What more can I say? It might not be for many of you because the art is a little on the cutesy side and all, but it had everything that I liked and disliked you could say. Well, it's been a few days since I completed this manga so I kind of forgot what actually happened but you guys can read and find out more.
Sana, a child actress, is your bright girl who likes to help people in despair and all. Hayama, the school bully, is the opposite in that he's too gloomy and more or less expressionless. These two opposites attract nonetheless due to lots of events but the girl is too dense-_- giving the guy a big headache lol.
Well, if it was just your cute shoujo type of story, maybe I wouldn't be so in awe. But this story also had drama, the characters developed and all. I especially loved the character development here. The mangaka(author) did a wonderful job I felt. The story made me frustrated at times, made me sad, made me laugh, and made me embarassed in their place too. Their looks, their expressions were priceless hehe what more can I say. It didn't have as much action as I would have liked but it still was good.
If you just click on its title on my blog here, you'll actually be directed to the site itself immediately. I finally added this feature for the later part of my blogs. The first few ones don't have them. I'm too lazy:P Well, I hope you people can enjoy this one as much as I did.

Bio-Meat Nectar (manga)

This series is totally different from those that I usually read. This has lots of blood, gore, horror, adventure and so on. There is some romance but not as much as I'd like. But despite all this, I actually enjoyed it.
A bio engineered animal that eats basically anything is produced to be later killed and given to humanity as food. But it gets loose in Tokyo and a killing spree starts. 4 kids survive the horror where it first starts and the story goes from there.
The story might not sound that interesting and even the art is not as luring as what I would have preferred. But somehow, I got compelled to read this. And now, I actually enjoyed myself. I was so hooked on it. I kept wanting to know, oh no, how are they going to survive this. I wonder what will happen now that it's over and all the little things like that.
New characters are also introduced later on. The story progresses to the future as well. As I kept reading further, I always had goosebumps at times where it got really interesting or my heart would beat really fast. It was great. The bond between the main characters was really admirable. I always felt happy when they were together. I'd totally recommend this series but it's not for the faint hearted. Remember, it has gore here, and of course adventure. It also has humor at times surprisingly. It is complete and you can find it online at onemanga and mangafox. Enjoy like I did!^_^
