We Were There Manga Review

Published August 21, 2015 by Shay Taree

Yes I know this is long time coming considering that the anime finished awhile back as well as the manga. But I recently picked it up again and finally finished it so here are my thoughts.

The biggest thing that I realized about this manga is that it comes off as being a really sweet manga but in reality it is a big emotional roller coaster. I have not been on a roller coaster ride like that when it comes to a manga in a sooooo long. It was refreshing to see but it did get very tiring after a while. 

  
The art style for the manga was actually really interesting and I really like it. The art didn’t interfere with trying to read the speech bubbles. Which is very frustrating to have happen. 

The only other thing that I didn’t like about this manga is that the ending is very lack luster. After all the drama that happened I thought the ending would be much better but it was one of those endings where the ending was similar to specific place in their past that was special to them. 

  
Not that it’s a bad thing it’s just that after that emotional roller coaster ride I was hoping for just a little bit more. 
Overall though I give this manga a 7/10. The art was amazing but the ending I had to dock points for. Comment down below though on what you thought of this manga if you read it and also this review. I can’t wait to read them!

Rockin Heaven Manga Review!

Published July 29, 2015 by Shay Taree

I haven’t done a manga review in a while so I decided it was about time I did another and plus I was in the mood for reading a good shoujo manga. 
The manga I chose was called Rockin Heaven and here is the synopsis: 

“Sawa applies to Heaven’s Wing Academy, thinking she would look cute in the uniform. But she never expected the academy to be a previously all-boys’ school! And the head honcho of the school, the class president himself doesn’t seem to like her one bit and takes no pains to hide it. At first, adjusting to life at the academy is tough. Sawa is bullied and teased, and the boys in the class even throw her new shoes in the water. While attempting to retrieve her shoes, she falls into the water and is unexpectedly saved by Ran, who up until this point has made her life hell. The newfound gentleness in Ran intrigues her, and she finds herself falling for him. What will her days be like for the rest of her school life?”

So I’m not going to lie it was your typical girl meets boy, boy meets girl, and drama happens which involves a lot of misunderstandings and love triangles. But still I could but have certain moments where I screamed in anguish off what happened or squealed with happiness when two characters kissed. 

  
One of the things I really liked about this manga is that none of the characters were side characters. They each had their own thing going on which was interesting to see. Also they gave a breath of fresh air knowing that whole manga wasn’t going to be about the main characters love story but also other characters relationships as well. There was even some friendship drama thrown in which was also nice. 

  
I also really liked how the manga didn’t end with just their graduation but it also gave an epilogue into their adult lives. That was really nice to see and was a great ending. 

  
So if your looking for a shoujo manga that is kind of your typical shoujo manga but with a great cost of characters and other stories written in between then definitely check out Rockin Heaven!

So overall I gave this manga a 8/10. Comment down below on what you thought of this manga if you read it or what you thought of this review! Join in the conversation!

Uta No Prince Sama Maji Love Revolutions Anime Review!

Published July 8, 2015 by Shay Taree

So I just finished one of my favorite series Uta No Prince Sama Maji Love Revolutions. Now I’m not going to lie I like watching this series mostly for the music and of course the guys are hot! Haruka is sooooo lucky! I don’t know what I would do if I was in her position. But anyway on with the review.

  
So the main plot of this season is that Starish wants to be entered into a top level music contest but they have to impress Shining Saotome. So they are divided up into teams and Haruka in the meantime does some work with the group Quartet Night. 

  
Of course since this anime does focus around music it was of course amazing! I loved the opening and ending song and I can’t wait to be able to download them. Also the other songs that were featured in the show were also amazing too! 

Now besides the music the plot was actually pretty good especially since you got to learn more about Starish’s rival Quartet Night. Also there are hints at another season especially because of how this season ends and there is a surprise at the end of a previous rival returning hahaha. 

  
So just as a fun question for those who have watched Uta No Prince Sama who would you want to see Haruka choose! My choices are either Otoya or Tokiya. 

  
  
Overall though I have this show an 8/10. So comment down below what you thought of this show and also your answer to my question. I can’t wait to read them!

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.
