Remember this post. Here’s another one but this time it’s manga time to shine. I’m going to highlight this part of the shelves. So you know, I love manga! I love art and I love awesome stories. I was a huge fan before, still am but wavered a little. I only read titles that I really, really love (like Skip Beat and D Gray Man). You can check out my Animelist for the titles/shows I know.

Last time I was too excited I forgot to read the instruction, so here is the how:

Put the number of books on your bookshelf (or if like me you have hundreds of books break it down to 50, 70, 100 – however many books you’d like to play with) into a random number generator this could be via Random Org or simply by pulling numbers out of a hat. For each question draw a number and apply that question to the selected book from your shelf (or wherever you like to store your books.) For example if you pulled the number 11 you’d count across your shelf to the 11th book. It’s as simple as that! – (by Jess Hearts Books)

I’m gonna do 100 this time (there’s plenty more but it’s difficult if I increased it further than that, so yeah). Also, I really recommend these titles, especially to those who want to branch out and want to try some ass kicking manga titles (since I’m more of Shonen (for boys) fan myself). Here ya go!

Book Number: 37 Book: Eyeshield 21 Volume 37 by Riichiro Inagaki & Yusuke Murata
Have you read this book? If so what did you think of it?
Of course and I freaking love it! It’s about American football and I don’t even know football. But thanks to this I learned the mechanics. It’s very nice, hilarious manga with a touch of heart! If y’all like stories about underdogs, this is a perfect title for you!

Book Number: 57 Book: Dengeki Daisy Volume 8 by Kyousuke Mutomi
Q2.) Why did you buy this book? Were you recommended it? Was it a random purchase?
Manga are way expensive than book, I will never, ever buy manga blindly. (Btw the mangaka is a man. Oh boy, he can write swoon worthy scenes like a pro!)

Book Number: 36 Book: D Gray Man Volume 3 by Katsura Hoshino
Q3.) Based on what you know about this book which other book blogger would you recommend it to? 
I don’t know have any close bloggers who also love manga like I do. But I really, really rec’ed this series. It’s my absolute favorite manga series of all time.

Book Number: 73 Book: Kamisama Kiss Volume 7 by Julietta Suzuki
Who’s this books bookshelf neighbour?
Skip Beat! Omnibus 1 (calling the attention of Elizabeth!) & Kamisama Kiss Volume 4.

Book Number: 78 Book: Ouran High School Host Club Volume 17  by Hatori Bisco
Q5.) How many books have you read by this book’s author?
Two. I really liked her earlier series called Sennen no Yuki (Millennium Snow). Viz Media is picking up the title again. Hatori-sensei is continuing the series. Oh my gosh Touya-Kun!!!!  (This is a vampire manga. ;D)

Book Number: 23 Book: Naruto Volume 1 by Masashi Kishimoto
Q6.) Do you have any special memories attached to this book?
A lot. Too many to mention.

Book Number: 56 Book: Saiunkoku Monogatari Volume 1 by Yukino Sai & Yura Kairi
Q7.) Is this book part of a series? If it is are you up to date with the series?
Yes. Sadly no. The hard part of being a manga fan not all titles are scanlated. And reading them raw (as in Japanese) is impossible.

Book Number: 97 Book: BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad Volume 7 by Yukino Sai & Yura Kairi
Q8.) Is this book something you’d typically read or is it out of your comfort zone?
Sort of. I love fantasy-esque type of shonen manga. And this one is contemporary but I liked it. It’s about music and it’s fascinating to read a manga when you’re not even hearing any of the music. It’s very good series.

Book Number: 42 Book: Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 27 by Hiromu Arakawa
Q9.) Have you reviewed this book? If yes then share a link to it.
This particular volume, no. But this series, yes. It’s on my private journal and if you have access, you can read ithere.

Book Number: 31 Book: Death Note Volume 1 by Tsugumi Ohba & Takeshi Obata
Q10.) Where did you buy this book from?
There are two stores where our mangas are coming from. It is either from Booksale or The Book Depository. This one was from Booksale.

Book Number: 10 Book: One Piece Volume 60 by Eichiiro Oda
Q11.) Roughly how long have you owned this book for?
My sister said one month, she was the one who bought it.

Book Number: 24 Book: Tegami Bachi Volume 9 by Hiroyuki Asada
Q12.) Share the first sentence of this book.

“In all things…the heart must take precedence.”

Book Number: 12 Book: One Piece Volume 54 by Eichiiro Oda
Q13.) What’s your opinion on this book’s cover?
I love Oda-sensei’s art so in short, I loved it!

Book Number: 28 Book: Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan Volume 5 by Hiroshi Shiibashi
Q14.) In a few sentences describe this book in your own words.
You know, if you want authentic Japanese mythology I suggest you to pick this manga up. I’m sorry but the books I read that were set in Japan. Or Japanese inspired were so…wrong. They didn’t get the essence of what a real Japanese story sounds like. No proper research *coughs* Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff *coughs* Nura apart from its very elegant art (Japanese brush strokes Huzzah!) it also has very interesting story. I really, really rec’ed.

And that’s it! Hope you’ll try some of them because I really, really like them. :3

    Ouran Koukou!! <3 I used to watch Saiunkoku Monogatari, the anime. And Beck! Loved the anime version. That dog…. Lol. Fullmetal Alchemist <3 (have yet to watch the new anime/read the manga thought). And DEATH NOTE!!! <333 Kira forever.

    "No proper research *coughs* Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff *coughs*" YES. Plus it bored me to death.

    • Mitchii G. says:

      Love the anime version of Beck, loved the songs there (I have them memorized *super fan*). I too haven’t watch the new season of FMA. Will try to squish it on my sched. Oh noes, I’m a big L fan, haha.

      I disliked Stormdancer. I’m only an anime/manga fan and things I know about Japan comes from it but even I can point out the horribleness that is Stormdancer. I felt offended after reading his cringe-worthy attempt to use honorifics. Sad, oh so sad. (and yes, it was boring)

    • Cayce says:

      ME TOO!! I don’t know how times I played those songs. Esp. Moon on the Water and Hit in the USA.

    • Mitchii G. says:

      I love Beat Crusaders. I heard they written most of the songs there. Love, love the OST.

  2. Lisa says:

    Had fun reading this post.

    I’m reading Ouran Host Club right now and having a ball with it.

    I am eyeing SkipBeat and thinking about buying it. Barnes and Nobles is having a buy 2 get 1 one free and with them being 3-in-1, it’s hard to resist.

    I’ll have to check out D Gray Man, since it’s your favorite.

    • Mitchii G. says:

      I’m glad enjoying Ouran, it’s been sometimes since I read (since it ended, me thinks).

      Oh you should, you should. Skip Beat is super hilarious and if you don’t mind the slow romantic development then just like Ouran you’re going to have a ball with it.

      It’s a goth, kinda dark type of story but I really, really liked it. :D Hope you’ll do, too. Thanks so much Lisa. <3

  3. Diane S. says:

    I’ve been waiting for something like this. Spreading the manga love from you. The last one’s manga art is beautiful.

    • Mitchii G. says:

      Alas, I’m doing a pretty bad job. I’ll try to do some manga related post next time.

      It is, Shiibashi-sensei’s art is so prweeeety. :3 Thanks Diane!

  4. Elizabeth says:

    Bahaha you know me so well! And I had no idea that Dengeki Daisy’s mangaka was a guy!! Whaaaat that’s crazy! Other than One Piece we definitely have very similar taste in manga shoujo-wise, so I’m going to have to see if my library has any copies of the non-shoujo ones I haven’t read yet.

    • Mitchii G. says:

      Haha, of course! :D It came as a surprise to me, too. Do you know his earlier series called Beast Master? I really liked that one, it was one of the reasons why I tried Dengeki Daisy in the first place. DD’s about to end (or already ended not so sure), I’m so sad most of my favorite manga series are ending. *cries*

      Oh you should definitely try the shonen series, love, love ’em!

    • Elizabeth says:

      What??? I must have forgotten it was the same mangaka, because I loved Beast Master! Yeah DD seems like it’s wrapping up :-/

    • Mitchii G. says:

      You do?!! *tackle glomps* It’s the series that introduced me to the mangaka. I was still disappointed that BM was so short.
