Manga Digest


~dA page~

Heh~ Gareki’s just too irresistible not to be featured front page and colored by yours truly in MD ^__^. And yup~ I’ll be making all OP pics for MD as manga colorings made by me ^^. Hope you’ll like them~

Btw, I won’t be adding Medaka Box and Karneval Ch. 10 in here since I feel sleepy and lazy now~ I already blabbered it on my Twitter waaaaay way back a week ago I think. Also, Shinobi Life got pretty boring in its current arc and I have nothing to talk about it.

Inside the Digest:

– Karneval: Ch. 11
– Kimi no Iru Machi: Ch. 56
– Bijo Jiku: Ch. 2
– Watashi ni XX Shinasai: Ch. 3
– ARISA: Ch. 7

Fresh Pick: Let’s Lagoon

Karneval: Chapter 11


SO MUCH CUTENESS!!! All thanks to Yogi and Gareki <3!!!

Haha~ Favorite scene has GOT to be when Yogi huggles Gareki <33 Oh god *melts into a puddle of fangirl goo*. They’re two of my favorite characters in here! And they’re huggling!!! What do I do now??? Kyaaa~!!! *spasms* Ehem…

There’s also a new character that seems like some sort of relative for Yogi. She’s Eva, and she’s also funny like Yogi as well. Plus she seems very sisterly. I lol’d so much at the scene where she carries Gareki XDD. Looking forward to see more of Eva-san ^^. And talking about appearances, we get to see Karoku as well! Damn, he’s so hot~ *__*.

More Karneval coloring: Yogi and Gareki FTW!!! Beware, can cause severe spasms! XDD~ Show ▼


Kimi no Iru Machi: Chapter 56


ARGH!!!!!!! Haruto’s such an idiot. An indecisive idiot. But moving on, Eba’s acting very vague recently. Is she doing all the cold shoulder stuff is because of the fact that she doesn’t want to be closer to Haruto anymore, since she’s leaving on to Tokyo anyway?

And I squee’d on seeing Takashi and Akari. Lol I’m secretly shipping them both. And by the fact that they don’t have any partners for the dance is just a hint that they MUST dance with each other! XD.

And oh, I’m glad that the Kikukawa wh0re had a very little part in this chapter. But I wonder if she’s with another guy or not. Lol, everyone’s avoiding Haruto XD.

Overall, this chapter makes me wanna scream! Argh!!! I wonder what will happen next. I guess that Kanzaki senpai will come to the picture. If not him, maybe that Kikukawa wh0re and just ruin Haruto’s momentum. Hope not~


Bijo Jiku: Chapter 2


This is honestly one of those series I’ve nearly forgotten because it took hell so long to be updated. I just noticed it until a friend of mine shove it right to my face lol. And I even forgot what’s the story of this too so I even read the first chapter again just to refresh my memory lols.

Anyway, it’s a fun chapter. The humor is still there. Kinda entertaining. There’s also the “second chapter smut” theory again, just like I <3 HS (same mangaka duh).

Overall, I still prefer I <3 HS. I find it more interesting. I mean, Bijo Jiku was definitey funny, but I <3 HS can be that as well. Also, the characters are way more interesting. This freaking chapter has nothing except from the main bitch whining the hell because of perfumes.


Watashi ni XX Shinasai: Chapter 3


THIS CHAPTER ISH HAWTT!~ Well can I really say “OMAIGAWD Yukina’s nothing like that lead girl in Koko ni Iru Yo! who sucks” XDD. I LOVE YUKINA!!! Compared to KniY’s Hikage (whom honestly reminds me of some girl we all love to bully back then on high school), Yukina’s the polar opposite. She’s fierce, cool and freaking moe at the same time. Plus, I love how she stands up for herself and her anti-hero attitude just rocks. Yeah bitch, PWN them! XD

The “kiss” did not happened directly on their lips, as expected. But seeing these two lovebirds having an interaction like that is just win. Oh my god the chemistry will just explode in a second. These two are so hawt! LOL @ Yukina’s weakness too, which gets finally revealed in this chapter: her glasses XD.

Fufufu~ And chapter four is definitely exciting too~ Can’t wait for it to be fully translated ^^. Akira <3


ARISA: Chapter 7


As usual, it was yet again another good chapter that ends with a cliffhanger, resulting for us to suffer again on a long wait for another update to come =___=. Hehe~

I also love how the series is so well-balanced. There’s a small shipping side for me between Tsubasa and Manabe, but I still think this series can stand alone so far without the romance playing yet. I hope Andou-sensei would keep her focus on what’s keeping this series awesome while still maintaining hints for the fans of course :P. All those fangirls demanding to bring on the romance already can go suck eggs on the corner while I point and laugh at them~

And now we’re tackling Manabe and Tsubasa, he finally discovers that the Arisa wasn’t really Arisa at all and it was Tsubasa, her twin sister. And throughout the whole chapter, I can’t help but be annoyed on Arisa’s “friend”, who’s some sort of a psycho-bitch-freak. I wonder though if she’s only a backstabber to Tsubasa only or if she’s also like that with Arisa. It seems like she has a thing on her boyfriend.

And I still have no clue on who the King is, but if it’s Takeru, I’ll totally bow down to his awesomeness and offer him my vital organs XD… Err, not really~ XP. Hey, I am still not forgetting about the Pervert Duck King too!

Oh, and last but not the least… So much hair color issues on this whole manga. Seems like the manga-ka cannot decide between pink or purple, and black or blue. Also, why can’t Tsubasa dye her hair pink instead of having a wig? As if that’s so hard to do that in the world of fiction where hair color can only be done in a snap of Photoshop. Also, can’t Manabe stay with a permanent hair color? I remember him being strawberry blonde not too long ago, but now he has gray hair. Also, TAKERU PLEASE CHANGE YOUR HAIRSTYLE. KTHNXBAI.



Let’s Lagoon: Chapter 1


Sypnosis from MangaFox:

Yamada is stranded on an island without any ships passing by who isn’t sure why he’s there because he can’t really recall, so after finding his sports bag, he assumes he was on a school trip. With only 7 days of food, he eventually decides to make a boat to leave the island. He thought he was alone on the island until a girl named Imaise Chika was found eating his food, where they then decide to continue making a boat. Since the boat only had room for one, Yamada decided to set off for help, but returned upon noticing that not only did Imaise put her rations in his bag, they were mostly untouched as well. After returning, he noticed she made the oar out of a fishing lance and he decides they can live on the island longer.

It has a pretty good start. I like this concept of only these two people stranded in an island struggling for survival. I just hope nothing stupid or silly comes out. I find the ecchi not really needed at all in here. But at the same time, it’s unavoidable because of its demography.

The two lead characters are obviously gonna be developed to one another. Who wouldn’t anyway if you’re stuck with someone alone in an island XD… Kinda unsure at the same time because the lead girl already has a boyfriend though. But I still find them both cute. I like their flirtings and the lead guy seems to show that he cares already for the girl. And it’s even stupid of him to sacrifice the boat just to get back to her and bring back some extra food -_-.

But overall, looking forward to see how this goes. I wonder if any other more characters would show up as well.

    Karneval: Oh my gosh those colorings are brilliant! :kyaa: :kyaa: :kyaa: Kyaaa! I love Gareki so much~ He’s so smexy. Nice selection of colors as well for his outfit on the first one. HAWT!

    I lol’d so hard on the totally naughty coloring you’ve done XD. Never looking at him and Yogi the same way again. Btw, the two of them are also my favorites ^^.


    WnXXS: Ugh @ the kiss >___.> But I agree! I gotta love the chemistry with both of them! Stupid baka-a$$hole meets ice queen fierce bitch XD!

    And yayz for the next chapter~ I skimmed the raws and omfg indeed :cute: AKIRAAAA<33


    ARISA: I swear I’m seconds away from throwing my keyboard on to my monitor because I’m seriously annoyed by Mariko :rage: . At the same time it’s so confusing how she took back Arisa so fast (and even carry her O__O). But yeah, she might also have a thing for Arisa’s boyfriend too because she’s always giving a death glare whenever there’s a panel showing Midori, lulz.

    Lol! Yeah! The colored pages in this manga are kinda confusing -_-;;. I thought Mariko’s hair was very dark purple, but now it’s bluey-blue. It’s also confusing if Arisa’s hair is marron/pink/violet/purple/rainbow. Maybe they secretly visit salons every end of the chapter to have some bleaching? 😆

    Kyaaa! :kyaa2: WnXXS never fails to make me go “kyaaaaa!!!” out loud XD. These two always amuse me when they’re on their “love lessons” XDDD.

    And on Arisa, I really like how this is going so far. Not sure about the romance, because it really ruins the potential of a good series for me when it comes on a wrong time.

    Great colorings! :thumb:
    I just started reading Karneval a few days ago and I’m so hooked with the manga. Yogi is definitely fabulous and entertaining. Gareki is hot. Nai can be a little annoying but his cuteness pays up for it.

    I’m looking forward to see more of Karoku and him saying how he’s very interested in Gareki just got me curious and excited for the time when both of them will meet.

    I also read Kimi no Iru Machi and I agree, maybe Eba’s avoiding him because she’s leaving. Sad because I’m kinda rooting her for Haruto though T.T

    Okay, I am just in love with your colorings. They’re all so good. The opening pic you put there was HOT! Okay, enough blabbering.

    I just loved this chapter. I also love Yukina. She’s now my awesome, pwning, megane tsundere quees(Utau’s the awesome, twin-tailed, tsundere queen). You can always fangirl in Watashi ni xx Shinasai.

    This new chapter. F-awesome! Manabe finds out that the class pres, isn’t the class ppres. Ooooooooh. Arisa’s “best friend” is a crazy, evil, bitch. She must also have a thing for Arisa’s boyfriend as well. And thank you! Some one else finally pointed out that Takeru needs better hair.

    Oh yeah. About Manabe’s hair color. I think we were all confused. In this chapter’s splash page, his hair reminded me of George Washington.

  5. Karneval: brilliant coloring as usual~

    Watashi ni xx Shinasai: Yukina rocks! Can’t wait for chapter 4 as well!

    Your fresh pick seems interesting . . . I’m worried on the ecchi . . . oh well, I’ll go see for myself . . . someday

    I don’t even read Karneval but that’s one hawtt coloring you have there :thumb:

    Watashi ni xx Shinasai!: IKR? If you compare our fierce Yukina to that boriiiiing Hikage, I’d go all outs for Yukina! And yeah, I didn’t expect her glasses to be her weakness XP
    Hohohoho~ You’re right, these two are hawttt♥ when together~
    For chapter 4: Show ▼


    Arisa: As usual, it was an awesome chapter. Like you said, there really is a balance in everything here in Arisa. I know I’m shipping Tsubasa and Manabe in some sense but I agree with what you’ve said that this series can stand alone without that.
    Speaking of Mariko, gee, I want to smash her face like crazy! :rage: I’m still betting that she’s the King Yeah, I noticed that too. The way she was looking at Midori and Tsubasa(who’s in Arisa-form) looks almost as if she was jealous 😛
