Sakura Hime Kaden Ch. 10 Recap – A Parody, Diary Style

Moar SHK! Why is this recap so short, you ask? Well, to be honest, I mostly found Chapter 10 boring–I can even sum up the whole 40 pages worth for y’all in a couple sentences right now, minus the SEKRIT REVEAL OF SEKRIT at the end (SPOILER SUMMARY IS SPOILERY):

Sakura: Replying to fan letters is so hard! Why must I be so popular? I will procrastinate and drag my posse to the club treehouse to talk about boys! Also, I reveal that I wanted to marry my brother. Incest just went canon, baby.

So yeah, except for the ending sekrit!reveal (which really wasn’t so secret since I bet half the audience guessed this already), this chapter was pretty dull in comparison to some of the other chapters. I was thinking of skipping this recap altogether but my prickly self and the need to do things in chronological order compelled me to finish. I ended up enjoying myself when I finally sat down and worked on this recap though, especially after I nailed down the format in which I should handle this Ch. 10 parody. Diary format was very fun to write in. >D

Sakura Hime Kaden Chapter 9: A Parody

Wow, er, I just disappeared on y’all, didn’t I? ^^; Sorry about that, I’d make up some excuse but honestly I just wasn’t motivated. None of the new anime interested me (except for Kimi ni Todoke), and I was mostly on a manga slump. As an apology, here be gratuitous Sawako pic:

Now, to the main point of this post: what brings me back to the animanga blogging world?

If you guessed Sakura Hime Kaden, YOU’D BE RIGHT. I’m the most predictable person ever, I know.

I was compelled by the cracktastic developments that followed in the latest chapter so I decided to neglect my many papers and studying for exams to write something for Sakura Hime Kaden. Now, before what I usually did was just post my page/panel reactions to the chapter and have commentaries at the end, but thinking about going through all the pages to do so hurt my brain. So I decided to change things up about and will from henceforth talk about each chapters in parody-style, script-format! W00t~~

And the first up on my list is the last chapter I left off: Chapter 9.

…I completely missed out on posting last week AND didn’t make it in time for this week’s monday. *hides* My excuse reason this time is actually because I’ve actually been mass-reading manga like a mofo.

So what’s this post gonna be about? You guessed it, SPORTS MANGA REVIEWS~ =DDD

The reviews will be split into two categories: 1) Exactly My Cup of Tea and 2) Tea’s Okay, Have Doubts on the Milk & Sugar. Continue reading ‘A Collection of Sports Manga Reviews’

Sakurahime Kaden – Ch. 8 Recap Impressions


Wow, I barely lasted two weeks before I broke my Monday blogging promise. *dies* I tried to write up something, I really did… I just, wasn’t really feeling inspired? =/ I’ll try to keep my promise for next monday though. =D

I love how Sakura Hime Kaden always manages to get me to blog here again, even if I loathe this chapter. Seriously WTF. The only saving grace was Enju, and 1 panel of him being hot doesn’t make up for 40 PAGES OF FAIL. (it’s like Ch. 5 over again, but WORSE, SO MUCH WORSE)

But anyhow, let’s talk about the cover. I actually like it a lot, anger issues over this chapter in its entirety put aside. Their sibling-like resemblance emphasized through colour scheme! Yeah, I’m still sticking to that theory. =D

Warning: Spoilers for the whole chapter. Also, the few pics I uploaded are all in full size so depending on your connection they might take a while to load.

Three Reasons Why I’m Loving Ga-Rei – Tsuina no Shou


(See? I’m keeping my blogging on Monday Promise)

Ga-Rei is one of those weird series where I love all the spinoffs but cannot stand the main series the world of Ga-Rei is based on. This is mostly because I find Kensuke extremely annoying. That, and I shipped Yomi/Kagura like a madwoman in Ga-Rei Zero, and Kensuke/Kagura pisses me off. Don’t mess with my ship, yo. D<

But we’re not here to talk about Ga-Rei, or even Ga-Rei Zero (which was epic and awesome and so much love). We’re here to talk about the relatively newly released 1st chapter scanlation of Ga-Rei – Tsuina no Shou! =D Continue reading ‘Three Reasons Why I’m Loving Ga-Rei – Tsuina no Shou’

Sakurahime Kaden – Ch. 7 Recap Impressions


I totally meant to do my review of this manhwa series, but clearly SHK ate my brain. I’ll do my manhwa post either tomorrow or the day after then. ^^;

So, the cover. Gorgeous, ain’t it? I absolutely love the roses and the rich colours in this cover. Actually, the giant black bow on Sakura’s bust line reminded me of the hanbok style, and a bit of those modern remakes of the hanbok where they enlarge and emphasize the bow more than in the traditional hanbok style. Er, just saying what came to mind when I first saw it, this is not meant to conflate two different cultures and fashion practices.  ^^; Don’t meant to offend or anything. *dies* And um, because of eksentrick, I will now no longer be able to unsee the noodle-like qualities of Sakura’s hair… She said it first, not me!

I figured this almost goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyhow just to be safe. Recap is spoilery for the whole chapter, and because it’s  an impressions post, it really doesn’t make sense if you haven’t actually read the chapter. The raws and translations are out atm though. =D

Sakurahime Kaden – Ch. 6 Recap Impressions


I’m finally up to speed with the latest recap w00t~

It’s been a couple chapters since we had a splash cover page. And it’s gorgeous~ Transformed!Sakura has always looked more mature, but this time she’s got this very sexy vixen look. And I totally dig it. lol, btw I’ve never actually noticed the thing on Sakura’s left sleeve until now. But it’s pretty. And Aoba! He looks great too. Has that whole solemn brooding looking going on and the purple outfit really matches those green birds flocking his way. =D My favourite cover so far. =D Continue reading ‘Sakurahime Kaden – Ch. 6 Recap Impressions’
