“What’s Hot”: 2008


Favorite Comedy Manga [TIE]
PhotobucketYankee-kun to Megane-chan/ Flunk Punk Rumble

There’s something to really love about Yankee-kun to Megane-chan. Besides from it’s golden comedic situations, I also appreciate its crazy characters. Adachi Hana might not be your typical class representative (or student council president, in the latter chapters), for she was a previous yankee that wanted to change her image. Shinagawa is the popular school delinquent who always gets into trouble because of Adachi. The perfect pair… then add Hana’s sidekick, and a Ami from ToraDora’s male counterpart except that he’s a former yankee. The only non-delinquent among them is the one who looks the most yankee of all XD… I really like this and every chapter never failed to give a chuckle. This manga is really recommendable.

Runner-ups: Lovely Complex and Maria+Holic


Favorite Romance/Drama Manga


Boku no Hatsukoi o Kimi ni Sasagu

Lol this manga was old but still, it ended this year so it qualifies. I must say that this is a gem and a masterpiece. I definitely like this one better than BokuImouto. It’s very heart wrenching, bittersweet, and tragic. I really don’t like those genres of manga, but BokuKimi has that “something special” that makes me love it.

Runner-ups: Kaichou wa Maid-sama, Kimi no Todoke and Koko ni Iru Yo!


Favorite Horror Manga

I had a hard time picking this one or Deadman Wonderland but I ended up picking Doubt instead because it focuses more on realistic aspects like paranoia and distrust. I’m such a psychological and myystery junkie that’s why I’ve come to be infatuated with the series too. My heart thumps like crazy and I always find it hard to breathe while reading it lol, and we never know what would happen next in every chapter.

Runner-up: Deadman Wonderland


Favorite Manga that has a word “Cross” in it

Gentlemen’s Alliance Cross

Yep. Biased award is biased XD.


Favorite Liplock

Zero and Yuuki [Vampire Knight]

Nothing beats having a bloody french to a guy who’s supposed to be killing you!

Favorite Megane Guy

Kanou-kun [Kaichou wa Maid-sama]

Lol blushing over the word “porridge” is something that would really make you very curious… What’s so wrong about sticky, slimy porridge anyway ;)? Lol.

    I am flabbergasted to discover that Vampire Knight and not GaReiZero has bagged Best Pocky Endorsement award. That’s like giving Best Pizza Endorsement to anyone except Code Geass!

    I think everyone who watches/reads/ has even heard of SC wants Amu clothes.

    Kannagi is definitely my favorite comedy of the year. Episodes 4-10 were win.

    And Mika-chan owns of the best little sister category. (too bad for Mei-chan).

  5. I really should watch Kaiba. Not a kid show eh?

    Ah. I had to change the website for the first time ever while commenting (yay? But I screwed up on the last one, heh).

    *gasp* The incest kiss made it up there? The most *GASP*-inducing moment in Shugo Chara ever? Damn straight then.

    I love how you managed to get all three ToraDora girls in there (they deserve it). And hell yes favorite trap is reserved for Mariya.

    And I second the, “OMG I WANT THOSE CLOTHES!!!” Award (I’m still trying to find her kitty hat. I’ll have suck it up and just make one.)

    Seeing “SINGLE LADIES [Put a Ring on it]” made me laugh. First time I ever really heard that video was on a skit on SNL that was…um yeah. But my goodness, you certainly did get all of the best songs from 2008 (lol, plus some ones I never listened to, but they certainly are good).

    These favorites are so awesome, that they have to be excused for being late.

    @Kitsune: Sadly, the video was no longer available 🙁 But I replaced it with the whole episode 3 of Antique Bakery. You can found the rain scene at the later part of the episode almost near the end. Sorry for the inconvenience T_T

    @revelomina: Well, biased is biased XDD

    @53RG10: I love that song while back because I remember the time when I first got drunk.. Umm I guess it’s safe not to share it with anyone lol.

    @warriorhope: Mika is awesome, and of course Mei-chan is a runner-up 🙂

    @FuyuMaiden: You’ll laugh harder (or get shocked, depends on you) when you see this video of a guy dancing the exact routine from Beyonce! XD LOL.

  8. Xiao says:

    XD Why am I surprised and not so surprised at what I see in this post? Awesome. ;D

    I wish I had a wide range of interests like you do. I miss out on so much good stuff because I’m so selective. ^^; *sigh* Ah, well. Maybe later this year. *procrastinator* xD;

    Again, awesome. x3 Lookin’ forward to another great year of your blogging, too. ^^

    I enjoyed that, I’m glad Katy Perry and Vampire Knights made it in.

    @Kairu Ishimaru: (lol sorry for the late reply. I didn’t noticed your comment XD)Anyway, Kaiba is really good.

    @Xiao Jie: Thanks ^^. I’m also looking forward for a great year of blogging to you too 😉

    @Maura: Yay for Katy Perry and Vampire Knight!!! :spark:
