The problem with following so many series is that auto-buy mode becomes increasingly damaging….
I had ordered Saki a couple weeks back, and having finally started the hatsukoi anime I had to get the rest of that series. Totally recommend hatsukoi limited for fans of romantic comedy. What it reminds me most is kimi kiss. No fantastic elements or anything, just a nice complicated web of relationships. I guess those are kinda hit or miss, depending on if you like the characters… but for what’s it’s worth, they were a hit with me ^^;
Yui’s seiyuu (豊崎 愛生 – toyosaki aki) does the voice for Koyoi, which niconico has taken advantage of for moelicious results.
Koyoi, for those unfamiliar with the series, is a hilarious buracon (brother complex).
There’s a mix of middle school students and high school students… misaki falls into the high school category.
…and an uber girl next door ^^
As a romantic comedy with so many characters, they’ve got pretty much all the bases covered as far as character archetypes go.
tsundere included ^^ So yeah, check it out.
And if those 8 volumes weren’t enough…
I actually already have all of azumanga but… according to sankaku there’s ton of new art so I couldn’t resist.
I’m glad I guessed correctly that I hadn’t already bought ToLoveる volume 14… yami on the cover ^^
Was surprised to see the ToHeart2 manga in stock… kinokuniya was pretty bad at keeping it stocked as I always had to order the latest volume. It was thanks to this manga that I got into visual novels ^^;
And last but not least kimi kiss vol 5! I wish more manga adaptations of visual novels would take this form – each volume is a complete story arc for the given character. Rather than try to smush everything into 1 plot you get a much better adaptation imo.
As mentioned above, kimi kiss is also a romantic comedy without any fantastic elements… you’ve got your choice for the medium in which to enjoy… started as a visual novel but manga and anime are both out if you prefer.
Figure gets have been slow of late, though I still have my fair share of reviews to catch up on. Just need to pick who’s next ^^;
