I’ve held off on doing any throw back thursday reviews or reviewing manga, not because I didn’t want too but because I put them aside for a while to work through my entire bookshelf I have of To Be Read (it’s not one shelf, it’s the whole thing).
I went to a friends yesterday, to hangout and give her an early christmas gift (Hardcover copy of Interview with a vampire). I love manga, I have since middle school when I started reading them in the 6th grade, anime started in Elementary. This series was great, unfortunately she only had the first six issues. I know, who only gets the first half!! I joke, it was great but I need more!! I read all six issues within the afternoon.
I love a lot of the shojo that share the swapped gender, girl or boy pretends to be what they are not for their own reasons and OH NO someone found out!! What will happen! If you are looking for a great story, and a fun read pick up a copy and turn a few pages. I also enjoy love triangles, this had that. It reminded me of Oran Host Club, and Girl Got Game, crossed with Hana-Kimi, except this time it’s the guy who’s cross dressing!
