Ai Morinaga-My Barbaric Girlfriend and Poor Prince Tarou

This is THE FUNNIEST MANGA EVER!!! I love MORINAGA Ai who comes up with the weirdest plots. But they are really funny to a little too weird for some. I love her.

Boku to Kanojo no XXX/My Barbaric Girlfriend by Ai Morinaga




From Tokyopop:
Rude girl and effeminate boy switch bodies and find that it might be a better fit for both of them. Lots of crazy comedy. Nanako Momoi is the belle of high school... as long as she stays quiet. Once she shows her true self, guys' dreams are shattered for she is a true tomboy. Akira Uehara has the looks and brains, but, unfortunately, his personality is so dull it overcasts a shadow, and nobody notices him. One day, Nanako's grandfather comes up with a crazy invention, and Nanako and Akira trade personalities! She's he, and he's she!
This is a favorite of mine and have been on it for years. Because it was dropped for awhile, but it is now being continued and then after 189 days there are new scans ^^ YAY!!

Another manga by the same person that I love but is currently on hold becuase there hasn't been anynew scans is

Yamada Tarou Monogatari/Poor Prince Tarou



From Kagami:
With their father going away for an extended time without any warnings whatsoever, the Yamadas have to get by on their own, and Tarou, the eldest son, carries the biggest burden of all: supporting their large family. Of course, Tarou's money problem is overshadowed by his appearance, as many girls (and GUYS) trample all over each other to get his attention. Experience the joys and tears of being poor AND beautiful while reading this manga.


So pretty much everyone thinks he is rich but he is very poor. He can do everyting becuase he takes many jobs to provide for his family. And because he is just soooo awsum, he turns a guy gay...Very very funny

Sad Songs

These are some videos that made me cry before....Very sad...

First is the most moving song for me EVER IN MY LIFE

The first time I heard it was when my friend played it on the piano for the chours teacher in the end of 7th grade. I was waiting for her so we could walk to lunch together. And when I heard it I started to cry, it was not like sad gloomy cry. It was too beautiful-that kinda sad that I started crying. So after that every time I saw her near a piano I would make her play it for me( I kept making her replay the fast part because it was my favorite part of the whole piece). Afterwards I saw this animation for part of the piece and it made it even more moving than before. And so here it is....(Though it sounds the best from a live play)

La valse d'amélie composed by Yann Tiersen-The animation is called The Piano, and I have no idea who made it-sorry





I love her voice and TOP from BigBang is in this, I love him with his glasses on ^^

I'm Sorry by Gummy



This was also really sad, though I watched the mv after hearing the song repeat again and again off my friend's iPod.

Because I am a Girl by Kiss

17 Again

I really wanted to watch 17 Again, since I like those kinda things. Loved 13 Going on 30, and there was another one...? Well anyway, since I am too lazy to walk out of my door even if someone were to pay for the movie, I was looking all over the internet for it...well not ALL OVER...But I ended with a fake file twice...then I stopped because I did not want anymore Trojans. But I found the video today! YAY!! EXCEPTTTTTT: It has the most crappiest quality everrrrr. So here it is, but I don't know if I shall watch it....maybe wait a few days and someone else can load up a better verison...

New Addiction - My Queen and Fated to Love You

I mainly stay addicted to Manga...since I was 10...? Yea that was a lonnnnggg time ago. Anyway now I am kinda addicted to Taiwanese dramas. I was watching My Queen and since it wasn't complete I started watching Fated to Love You.

I'm too lazy to link the videos but you can go here for My Queen



The drama revolves around Shan Wu Shuang who grew up being the best and number one. However since she can do pretty much everything herself, she can't get a guy. Then she meets Lucas who helped her when her co-workers tried to play a prank on her because she always looked down on them. We then find sparks flying around them while they try to play around the wall of the 8 year difference between Shan Wu Shuang (almost 33) and Lucas (25, Ethan Ruan)

And here for Fated to Love You



Main character Chen Xin Yi is a sticky note girl. Plain, boring and a tad bit slow. She tries her hardest in everything, but gets taken advantaged of by everyone around her. She lives the Cinderella life, until she makes a life changing accident. A play with the wrong rooms, dark lighting and drugs she beds the wealthy Cun Xi (Ethan Ruan). Sometime later she turns out pregnant and they are forced to wed?!

They are subbed in Chinese and English. You can also find more Taiwanese dramas. Personally I love My Queen a lot better than Fated to Love You. The main character Shan Wu Shuang played by Cheryl Yang plays a strong women unlike in Fated to Love You where the main character Chen Xin Yi played by Chen Qiao En plays the role of a weak woman who can't do anything.


BTW I think that even though Ethan Ruan kinda looks like Ming Dao from A Prince Turns into a Frog, Ethan's still cutter. He has less baby fat even if it is cute...

DollHouse Episode 9 - Spy in the House of Love

There is a spy in the DollHouse!! Someone is a traitor and while Sierra is sent out to find the spy Echo stays to interview and find the spy from the inside. At the same time we learn that Adelle is a lonely old bat...And November meets and messages Paul...

When I was watching this on Friday with my little brother, I could not believe that that person was the spy. I was like ?????? Yea...

By day, Yoshimori's got some other demons to battle: an addiction to sweets and a seriously crotchety grandfather!

DollHouse

I am not much of a tv person, but I do have some favorites that I watch every week. Currently my favorite is DollHouse.



The story follows Echo, who was once named Caroline. She did something in her past she wanted to forget about so she was offered a contract where she would "work" for the company for 5 years. Once she signed she became a doll/active where their memory's and personalities are wiped so that they can be given new ones. These are based on the personalities and abilities of others that they have records of. She is given skills, a memory and personality that helps her complete the task that they assign her. "Alpha", the doll that got away from the place with the skills they gave him, tries to take down the company while aiding a federal agent to find the dollhouse. After sometime Echo starts to become aware of herself even in her clean wiped state...
