I love anime and reading mangas. While many people are obsessed with kdrama, I’m obsessed with anime. I always switch between anime and reading mangas.

My two moods:

›› Oh I’m bored with anime, I’ll try to start reading mangas.

›› Oh I feel like watching anime.

Currently, my mood is reading mangas. And if you love anime/manga like me, I have some recommendations for you. I totally understand the feeling- like you feel like you read all good mangas or watched all good anime. Too much like hahaha but you know what I mean. That’s why I got your back!

Without further ado,


1. Akatsuki no Yona

In English, Yona of the dawn.

Genre: Action | Adventure | Comedy | Fantasy | Romance | Shoujo

Princess Yona lives a life of luxury and ease, completely sheltered from the problems of the seemingly peaceful Kingdom of Kouka; however, the sudden murder of the king and betrayal of her beloved cousin Su-won places Yona’s life in mortal peril. Forced to escape only with Son Hak, who is both her childhood friend and bodyguard, the naïve princess soon discovers that Kouka is not the idyllic place she envisioned it to be. Poverty, strife, and corruption run rampant, making reclaiming the throne nothing more than a wishful fantasy given the kingdom’s current state.

Based on the popular manga of the same name by Mizuho Kusanagi, Akatsuki no Yona follows Princess Yona on a coming-of-age adventure as she faces the harsh realities of her kingdom. With only a mysterious legend to guide her, Yona must discover a way to restore Kouka to its former glory while being pursued relentlessly by the forces of the new King of Kouka.

2. Gakuen Alice

In English, Alice Academy

Genre: Comedy | Magic | School | Shoujo

Mikan Sakura is a normal 10-year-old girl. Optimistic, energetic, and overall a very sweet child, Mikan is the complete opposite of the aloof, intelligent, and somewhat cold-hearted, Hotaru Imai. Despite their glaring differences, the two girls have been best friends for a very long time. So when Hotaru suddenly transfers to Alice Academy, a prestigious school in the city, her best friend is devastated—especially when she hears of the horrible rumors regarding the academy’s harsh treatment of students. Beset with worry, Mikan runs away to see her best friend!

Upon her arrival, Mikan learns of “Alices,” individuals gifted with various supernatural abilities, and that the school is an institution built by the government to train and protect them. Discovering that she has her own unique powers, Mikan enrolls in the academy, and, after a lot of trouble, finally reunites with Hotaru.

Gakuen Alice is a heartwarming comedy that follows Mikan and her friends’ adventures in the academy, as well as their attempt to uncover the mysteries surrounding the problematic, fire-wielding student Natsume Hyuuga.

One night on her way back from work, she finds her tent buried underneath a landslide. Yuki Souma, the “prince” of her school, and his cousin Shigure Souma, a famous author, stumble across Tooru’s situation and invite her to stay with them until her grandfather’s home renovations are complete.

Upon arriving at the Souma house, Tooru discovers their secret: if a Souma is hugged by someone of the opposite gender, they temporarily transform into one of the animals of the zodiac! However, this strange phenomenon is no laughing matter; rather, it is a terrible curse that holds a dark history. As she continues her journey, meeting more members of the zodiac family, will Tooru’s kindhearted yet resilient nature be enough to prepare her for what lies behind the Souma household’s doors?

This story is similar to Fruits Basket in different ways. You know what? This is a must read. Again, so much feels, so much tears. I love the pairings. You might not agree with me before you read it (but someone spoiled you so now you know the ending -_-). BUT once you read it and the flow of events, it actually makes sense and you will say “I’m so glad she went with him”. Ranting about this soon! Also an anime.
