Romantic Drama or Romantic Comedy? 

Published June 1, 2015 by Shay Taree

As many of you may or may not know I love my share of romantic anime but I would like to know which do you prefer when it comes to romance.  Romantic drama or romantic comedy.  

Now I do like romantic dramas 

  
because the drama is what keeps the show interesting and at times will keep me watching.  But there to me can be too much drama where it just goes completely overboard and this I don’t like. 

My definite pick though has to go to romantic comedies. 

  
I don’t know why but the comedic nature of the show paired with romance always makes it interesting. Also I don’t know what it is but with romantic comedy anime’s it just relaxes me. 

So which do you like better. Comment down below to let me know!  Can’t wait to read your responses.

My Top 5 Romantic Anime’s ❤︎(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)❤︎

Published February 14, 2015 by Shay Taree

So usually I won’t post on Saturdays but since today is Valentine’s Day I’m making today a special post. So today I’m posting what my top 5 favorite Romantic anime’s are. I’ll also post the synopsis of them so everyone can decide if they will like to watch them or not.

1. Itazura Na Kiss:

Ever since she entered high school, Kotoko Aihara wanted to be in the same class as Naoki Irie. The only problem is that Irie is the smartest student in school contrast to Kotoko being one of the dumbest. Now in her 3rd year of high school, she still isn’t there. However, one day her home gets destroyed and the only place left to go to was Irie’s home. Now that she lives close to him, will their relationship be the same, or will it become greater than it is?

2. Wolf Girl And Black Prince:

The story centers around Erika Shinohara, a vain 16-year-old girl who tells her friends about her romantic exploits, but she actually has no boyfriend. She claims that a handsome boy in a candid photo is her boyfriend, but it turns out that boy is a schoolmate named Kyouya Sata. She has no choice but to make him her fake boyfriend. Unfortunately, Sata may look like a sweet person, but he is actually an ultra-black-hearted sadist. Sata takes advantage of Erika’s weakness and treats her like his dog.

3. Lovely Complex:

Risa and Otani are always being laughed at as the comedy duo. Risa, a girl, is taller than the average girl, and Otani, a boy, is shorter than the average boy. The two are always bickering and even their teacher sees them as a comedy act. But as their friendship develops, so do Risa’s feelings toward Otani.

4. Kaichou Wa Maid-Sama:

Misaki Ayuzawa is the first female student council president at a once-all-boys-turned-co-ed school. She rules the school with a strict discipline demeanor, but she has a secret: she works at a maid cafe due to her family’s circumstances. One day, the popular A-student and notorious heart-breaker Takumi Usui finds out her secret and makes a deal with her to keep it hush from the school in exchange for spending some time with him.

5. Peach Girl:

Peach Girl is about an average high school girl, Momo Adachi, who everyone thinks is a beach bunny/slut because of her tanned skin. The actual reason she is so tanned is because she was on the swim team and tans very easily. She likes a boy, Toji, who she heard only likes non-tanned girls. This causes her to question who she is and have low self esteem. She spends a lot of time trying to remake herself into the girl she believes he wants; however, she has a friend, Sae, who likes to go behind Momo’s back and make her life terrible, mostly by trying to take Toji away from her. All the while there’s another boy, Kairi, who is in love with Momo.

Alright so those are my top 5 romantic anime’s that I think have varying levels of degrees when it comes to both romance and drama. To me they are are good to watch on Valentine’s Day whether you have someone or not. Also comment down below what your favorite romantic anime’s are or let me know what you think of the 5 that I listed.

Shoujo Anime….Why People Like It!

Published February 5, 2015 by Shay Taree

This was a topic that this crazy mind of mine thought up and also because I’ve seen quite a few posts about shoujo anime recently. But I was wondering why people enjoy shoujo anime so much?

IMG_8726
Now before I get flaming posts about this topic I just want to say that I have NOTHING against shoujo anime. I personally enjoy them a lot and I’m always looking for new ones (feel free to recommend some). I just wanted to know why they are so enjoyable.

IMG_8727
I mean is it the storyline, the characters, the music, the animation, the humor (in some cases), or could it just be that it’s anime so why not enjoy it hehe.

IMG_8729
But I can’t speak for anyone else but I think why I enjoy shoujo anime is so much is that I love to watch lighthearted anime’s sometimes to just escape and get away from the real world for just a little bit. Also it makes me happen to see someone even if it is someone that isn’t real get their happy ending and see things go right. Plus I’m a total romance kind of girl! I can’t help it!

IMG_8730
I also really like the music in this genre of shows, the animation at times can be really clean and sharp, and plus why lie but the guys are always so cute haha.

But seriously why do you enjoy the shoujo genre? I would love to know! Comment down below and like always I will comment back!

Wolf Girl And Black Prince Anime Review

Published January 29, 2015 by Shay Taree

I’ve finally gotten a chance to watch an anime that I had been wanting to watch since I heard about it and that’s Wolf Girl and Black Prince. I had heard about this anime via Crunchyroll and also via an anime social media app that I frequent on called Anime Amino.

Like usual I waited until the anime was done airing before I watched it so that I could marathon it and wow was it worth the wait.

I immediately got hooked on the anime just by the opening song alone but then once it started with the main character Erika being a perpetual liar so that she can be welcomed by new friends by making up that she has a boyfriend. At first they believe her but after seeing no proof they start to think she is lying (which she is). Erika then takes a picture of random boy just to say that she has a picture but it turns out to be the most popular boy in school Kyoya Sata.

IMG_8682
To keep up the lie Kyoya pretends to be her boyfriend but treats her like a dog (literally) since he isn’t as sweet as he looks.

Pretty much after seeing all this happen after the first or second episode I was like I have to see more!!!! “o(*^▽^*)o” The anime then takes you through Erika and Kyoya’s relationship as they go from pretend boyfriend and girlfriend to actual boyfriend and girlfriend.

IMG_8683 Awww so sweet!!! ♡(๑′ᴗ‵๑)♡
As far as the characters go I actually really liked the female lead Erika because to me she acted like many want to act. Especially when it came to doing couple things because I’m sure that every girl pictures doing all the cliche things with whomever they like or are with at the time.

As for Kyoya, well I of course liked him because hey he is a very cute guy but throughout the series I would like and dislike him during certain parts. But hey I’m guess that’s what the producers wanted you to feel.

One part in particular is what I like to call the infamous water scene with Erika and Kyoya when he basically played a joke on her by pretending that he actually had mural feelings for her.

IMG_8684
At first it for my hopes up but once I realized that he was joking I immediately didn’t like him and was happy when Erika threw her glass of water on him. To me that was what he deserved and I could tell from the look on his face that he was shocked that she did that.

Now I can’t forget the music in the show which was amazing. My favorite some though in the series was of course the opening. It’s call Love Good Time and I was hooked onto the beat by the first episode. Even now I still play that song all the time on my phone and it’s one opening that I never skipped and would just let play for every episode.

So if you like shoujo anime’s and anime’s that put on an emotional roller coaster in some parts then you will definitely enjoy Wolf girl and Black Prince. You can watch it on Crunchyroll and the show is about 12 episodes so it’s pretty short. Also there is manga that is currently still on going and I plan to read it just to see what happens next.
