Someday My Prince

Someday My PrinceSomeday My Prince by Martha Cecilia
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I used to own the complete Sweetheart series when I was a teen. And I remember loving every story especially this volume. Which is why I bought it again for collection sake but I regret doing so. I still like the book and the story is fine but it's not as enjoyable as I remembered it. For one thing, the story jumps around too much. It starts when the boy is already an adult, then the story went back in time to the time when he was a young teen, then two years later, then back to the continuation when he was a teen. Then it forward decade into the future and once again back a few years in the past (with another past scenes in between) and again and again. It's not confusing but really tiring that after I reach chapter 17 out of 21 chapters I was so tired of reading the story I fast read the whole thing.

*ALERT! A LITTLE SPOILER below*

I was actually also a bit annoyed by the fact that he found it to be a betrayal to love the daughter of Zach but not his wife.

All in all this story made more appeal to me when I was younger.

D.gray-man

Would it still be considered a review if I only talk about the characters? Just wondering 'cause I just finished watching D-gray man anime.

WARNING!!!

SPOILER ALERT!

KEEP READING, ONLY IF YOU DON'T MIND SPOILERS!

Still reading?

Okay here I go.

D-gray man is great! I love love love it! (And I wish more anime seasons come)

The story is wonderful I have no complain at all, and the characters are great but I'm boiling right now because of some
characters.

First of all lot of good guys I like died, second there's some characters who I want dead is still walking around and kicking!
And I don't mean the bad guys, but the members of the protagonist!

I see, a lot of people commented that they hate, dislike, irritated and that they wish that Lenalee to just die but I think the one I'm annoyed on most is Chaoji or Chaozii Han. His so short minded and ignorance of other people point of view! Allen is doing his best to save everyone including his sorry ass when he was defenseless yet he still suspect Allen for being a traitor. He doesn't even know and I don't get the impression that his trying.

No offense to Chaoju fans but Chaoji should DIEEE!!!

*wheeze* *wheeze*

*collapse of madness*

*wakes up*

I'm still bothered.


Okay as long I already mention Lenalee  I'll keep going about her.


Though I was againts that other hate her especially after she lost her long hair I think she's okay. I don't like her too but I don't dislike her either, she's just her. But of course if I'm completely honest I like her better in the beginning before her long hair was lost. Because it was as if she did not only lost her long hair she also lost the personality that she used to have. But all in all I prefer Lenalee over many other shounen female character. Why? That's because she doesn't kick the main character around like she's the boss.



Allen: I was very neutral about him in the beginning but I think around the same time that Lenalee lost her appeal, Allen got cooler and cooler, then after he synchronize with crown clown, there was no
more moments where I think his lame. Oh sweet Allen *fan girl scream* Kyaaaaa! (that was for the cool him)


Lavi is great too! I never dislike anything about him from the start, he was my first favorite but after Allen come back from the "dead" he become my second favorite.


Kanda is hmmm...well I was annoyed at how cold he is toward his comrade but I slowly grow over it, and by the time they was on the ark I like him already.


Cross Marian, his cool! One could say that he treated Allen badly, but when I think about it from his view he probably did all those things to make Allen stronger.



 
Arystar Krory: Though many said that he's lame, but I think that he's actually cool and manly. His clueless and funny.



 
Miranda too, I like her too, whenever she's arround I feel cheered up.

Lu Fan, hahaha, I love this girl! Especially because she cares so much for Allen, and she's funny when she's lost in her fantasy.

Ah, and of course Komui, oh how could I almost forgot about him. Yeah, his my favorite too! I can't put him in any number since his special, same with Bak Chang and Foo.

And there's some Finders which I hope I could have seen more in the series. Micheal, Toma (he was closed to Allen) Gozu his funny too (cries a lot)
And Devon, tsk, he die too early!

Hmm...I don't think I forget to list anyone, since the rest of the characters is not likeable ot hateful enough to mention. They're all okay.

Detective Academy Q


Genre: Detective fiction, Comedy, Drama, Mystery


Written by: Tadashi Agi
Illustrated by: Fumiya Satō


Summary: Detective School Q is the story of a group of young students from Class Q of Dan Detective School (DDS), a prestigious and renowned detective academy founded by Morihiko Dan, the most famous detective in Japan, and the adventures and mysteries they unfold and solve together. They eventually work against Pluto, a mysterious organization which creates almost fool-proof plans that only a handful of detectives can solve.


Review:

Though it involve crime scenes and all tragic cases, it's all bloodless which a bit turn off
because when people die you'd normally see even just a drop of blood, but the story is intriguing that I ended up ignoring the bloodless deaths.

It's a funny story but also has a lot of heart wrenching moments, and many times it puts me on the edge of my seat. There's not a single episode which I would call boring, always exciting.
And I specially enjoy how they reveal the identity of the culprit, and how they cracked their alibi.

If you like Detective Conan, you might like this anime too. I especially like this because
at least here everyone respect them as a detectives, unlike Conan which often the credit
goes to some brainless detective.
