    The boys who fell too hard!

    Male love interests falling in love first is one of those tropes that can easily convince me to try the manga (romance wise). I think I already mentioned it here how I immediately fall in love with stories if the main male love interest is the first one to fall. I don’t know why, in many stories, the way he struggles just to get the affection of his otherwise naïve apple of the eye is just so interesting. Plus, this—

    How romantic is romantic to me?

    I’m a woman of subtlety!I actually appreciate simple romantic gestures better than you know, those over-the-top/super cheesy ones!  So if you’re gonna ask how romantic is romantic to me: then equal parts of cuteness and rare small doses of sensual tension is enough. Although I’m character driven type of reader so even if the romance isn’t the story’s strongest feat I wouldn’t even mind. Almost all favorite shoujo manga are the light drama ones.

    I know that ‘unrequited love’ plotline is not exactly new. But most people do read to escape, and by escape they are inclined to choose a happy sort of feeling in stories rather than a hard slap in the face realistic approach (as such this romantic plot angle implies). At least to me, I gravitate more on series that I knew is fun or happy rather than one that will make me sad. I do occasionally seek reads like these—

    When your OTP becomes canon!

    When your OTP becomes canon!

    You know me, I never hid my persona as a hard-core shipper! And being one makes me all too protective of my ships, but that said I still set boundaries. But I still can’t help being a passionate shipper. I confessed how sometimes shipping & my OTPs clouded my judgment and take a huge part of my enjoyment over the stories I read and watch. And while I don’t participate on shipping war aggressively, in my little own secluded fangirl—
