    Shoujo Manga and Anime are whats helping me get through this Pandemic at the moment. I am currently 35 volumes into Skip Beat! I also need the next volume of Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight, there's also Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku which is more of a Josei Manga because it's focused on mid twenties character and it's cute af. Also watched Maid Sama and Tora Dora to. While eagerly away the dub of the new episodes of Fruits Bakset on funimation. Shoujo and Josei manga is the absolute best

    I love daytime shooting star. The ending was so satisfying to me. It's still one of my fav. shojou's till this day.

    OMG I canΒ΄t believe you read Daytime Shooting Star! <3 I donΒ΄t like teacher-student stories either, but this was a really good bittersweet manga with many lovable characters that deserves more love.

    I was all for Kyo when I watched the og and I still stan him and Tohru now. I just want to protect Yuki. And all of them

    quite literally the only reason i read Daytime Shooting Star was because my friend told me that spoilers her relationship with her teacher doesn't pan out and honestly????? no regrets we really have no choice but to stan Mr. Calls-Them-Like-He-Sees-Them Mamura Daiki

    i rewatched and reread furuba and ouran of nostalgia and i wish i kept it in my nostalgia πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­
    you say you're trash for shoujo, but reliving the nostalgia makes me think shoujo is trash. period 🀣
    speaking of shoujo, you should read wotakoi. it's relevant, everyone's over 25y/o, and (so far) not problematic.
    dnangel is bomb dot com tho. don't watch the anime. the manga is A++ i should give it a reread…or maybe not idk
    at least everyone is age-appropriate, no guy makes the girls go through emotional labor, and nobody is a predator 🀣🀣

    Oh my gosh I'm trash for reincarnation romance mangasss. Like it's overused in manga tropes but damn it never gets old for meee. Ahhh my loveeee for Doctor Elise: Queen with the Scalpel. Like she was a queen, was executed, then became a doctor in modern times, thennn was in a plane crash and returned back to her old life. Knowing everything that is going to happen she decides to save her (very loving) family, becomes a doctor and is just soooo coool! Also the art is sooo pretty and is coloured. And the male lead is just sooo cuteee and like a puppy I swearrrr.

    I'm a Yuki/Tohru shipper, and this warmed my damn heart so much to see another shipper! My heart wants all good things for Yuki forever!

    I can't believe I've read all the manga you recommended!! I love how you mentioned Daytime Shooting Star as it is one of my all time favourites πŸ™‚ I love the mangaka's other works as well, especially Tsubaki-Chou Lonely Planet – if you're interested you could check it out, I'm not sure if you still read manga but if you do, give it a shot! It does have the much older guy (10 years or so?) -younger girl dynamic but I love it nonetheless.

    On a side note, I've recently discovered your channel and I have to say I really enjoy your content, I don't particularly read many books (i'm more of a manga reader) however I absolutely love your personality and flair when talking about certain books, and how you have such a friendly and mature vibe that you don't see a lot on youtube nowadays. It's very refreshing and I look forward to more content!

    I screamed when you talked about DN Angel! MY CHILDHOOOOOOOD! Basara is an interesting reversal of the chosen one trope. I'll definitely check that out.

    I would recommend Red River by Chie Shinohara. Its a long series but quite worth the read! The mc gets transfered from modern day life to Hattusa, the capital of the Hittite Empire in Anatolia.

    Fruits Basket will always be my favorite. I love Yuki and Tohru..but I love the motherly nurturing relationship they have. She gave him something he never had as a child. It shows us that a boy and a girl can have deeper relationships than just boyfriend and girlfriend relationship.

    I've watched High School Host Club on Netflix at least 3 times!

    I also ship Yuki with Tohru πŸ˜”πŸ˜” idk why but I would always "get attached" to the "2nd choice" (the character that would've ended up with MC if love interest didn't exist) kinda like how I also like Kyoya (;Β΄ΰΌŽΰΊΆΠ”ΰΌŽΰΊΆ`) it's really hard to live a life where if a person asks who you ship MC with there's a 90% chance you will start a war;;;;

    I really like Kyo and Tohru together but I respect your guys’s opinions. I just think Yuki needs someone who can acknowledge his loneliness deep-down instead of viewing him as a prince and putting him on a pedestal. Someone needs to look past the β€œprincely-facade” he puts on. Does he get a love interest? Yes. Is she amazing? Also yes lol. Hope you can see this even though it’s been 9 months since this was uploaded…

    Ok this is honestly a last ditch effort and I'm pretty sure no one is gonna see this, but I started reading NG Life because of this video and I was really into the story but for some reason it's so hard to find copies of this manga?? The scanlations I could find online just dropped in quality at chapter 6 and my local library doesn't seem to have copies and when I look on amazon, each volume is like hella expensive?? I saw one listing that was 80 bucks??? Does anyone know how I can read this manga I just wanna read the story πŸ™

    Your friend has good taste! I LOVE NG life 😭 and it feels overlooked by readers but it's so funny, so moving, and the ending was bittersweet. It wasn't very long (I think 10-12 volumes) but it was very memorable.

    Recomendation video and I'm here waiting for something I know xD And Yes, DN Angel and Kamikaze kaitou Jeanne are soooooo nodtalgic for me, I love them even tho they might not be great xD Orange and NG Life sounds awsome and I'm gonna give it a try!
    ALSO in Sailor Moon manga Mamoru isn't college student, he's in high school and is 16/17 yo, so it's not that creepy anymore! Idk why in anime they made him older…

    BASARA was the first or one of the first shoujo manga I read (it was at my library) and to this day one of the best manga I have ever read. Also watched kaito jeanne back in the day purely for sexy sinbad πŸ˜›

    I love how the reason you read the manga is because you ran out of things to read cause i felt that way before too. I was a shoujo based reader until i felt nothing was left anymore and so i ventured into yuri and yaoi 🀣.. i know you said you dont like the teacher x student dynamic but i ate that sh*t up before maybe its because i was young and dumb and thought that nothing is wrong with a grown man having a relationship with a student. One of said manga is titled Faster than a Kiss. I wonder if you came across that one?

    I don’t watch anime, I don’t read manga. But I’m here to support Cindy no matter what ❀️ I’ve never heard of these before πŸ˜… the snacks seemed like a let down for y’all ngl.

    OMG I watched the Fruits Basket reboot this year and I thought the exact same thing
    about Hatori ! Except I was also like : what do you mean I am now the same age as the responsible and down to earth Hatori ??? I still don't have my shit together like he does snif XD Also, you two are the sweetest <3

    The Ouran Host Club is where the school's handsomest boys with too much time on their hands entertain young ladies who also have way too much time on their hands. Just think of it as the Ouran Academy's elegant playground for the super-rich and beautiful.
