Hello Hello Hello!
It has been such a painful weekend for my poor feet! I have to go back to wearing Danskin shoes to help my feet and back. 8.5 hours of standing is not ideal, I can say that. As for now, I am lying comfortably in bed and writing in my daily journal. I thought today that I would just have an easy day by telling you all about my top three shoujo manga!
I have been reading manga for a while now and these three manga are the ones I would constantly tell people about and recommend reading. So if you’re looking for some pretty awesome shoujo manga to get your hands on or start reading, here are three of my personal faves.
First off is probably the most classic and influential manga to be released yet: Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon takes place in 20th century Japan where an average and clumsy 14-year-old Usagi Tsukino learns that she is “Sailor Moon” by a talking cat named Luna! She fights evil and finds friends/sailor scouts along the way and OH MY GOSH I LOVE IT. I personally grew up with the original anime, but within the last year or so, the manga was released in the United States and I got the chance to read it all and I will admit that the manga is relatively different to the anime. I personally think it was better and progressed a lot faster! The art is gorgeous and the story is adorable, deep, and thoughtful.
Next up is a relatively new manga entitled “Taiyou no Ie” or “House of the Sun.” The story follows Mao, a high schooler whose parents are divorced and has no place to stay, while she finds a home with her best friend’s older brother. Day by day, she grows fonder of her home while also trying to find her place in her father’s new family. One thing I love about this manga is that it is very mild and what I mean by that is that it is refreshing to read, the plot is thoughtful and there isn’t too much angst for the reader. The artwork is different to what I’ve normally seen, but I think that is what drew me to read it in the first place. Unfortunately, this manga is not available in the United States YET, but you can read it on certain manga reading websites.
The final manga is actually one created by songstress, Courtney Love. “Princess Ai” follows a half-angel young woman who falls into Tokyo mysteriously and meets a young college student named Kent who helps her find her way through Tokyo, stardom, and her own personal background. I remember hearing about this manga when it first released and I thought it wouldn’t be that great because it is only 3 volumes long. WELL, I was wrong. It actually has a splendid story and well written lyrics that many have actually turned into actual songs. The art is quite nice and the costumes definitely made sense with Courtney Love being the creator. I would suggest this manga for those looking for a quick read and if you’re a Courtney Love/Nirvana fan!
Well, I apologize for such a short post! Hopefully you all enjoyed it! I will be saying goodnight seeing as how it is close to 12am…so, I hope you all have a fantastic week, be safe, and always remember to be thankful for each and every day.
Thanks for Reading~! ❤
