Review:

I don't know how the manga goes or what feelings it delivers because I only watched the anime. And this review is based on that.

The first thing I want to say is that I enjoyed watching Peach Girl as a viewer it made me feel many different emotions: sad and happy, anxious but many times I get so angry at the characters, well it should be normal to feel it for the antagonist but now I practically have something to dislike on everyone, except for Kairi, (even if he's a playboy).

I was especially feeling frustrated near the end because of Momo's indecision. I feel like grabbing her out of the screen and tell her off. But it all got better in the end so I was fine.

It got the happy ending I always want to get from romance stories but I feel like something is missing, like I like it to continue a bit longer!

And oh, I also love the Taiwanese drama but the anime is better because the "Momo" (forgot the Taiwanese names) wasn't that good to act, but the "Sae" and "Kairi" was good.

How to Train Your Dragon


I just remember about this wonderful animated film I watch a year ago! It was already two years then since the release but I never heard of it. Bored and searching the internet for some entertainment I bump in to a movie with a title: How To Train Your dragon.


I was skeptic at first thinking that I might not like it but I totally love this movie! I love how the friendship develop, and the romance in the story is great not dominating but there. 
Lot's of flying and 3D effect. The comedy part especially when he was with the dragon the first time was so funny I literally cried from laughing.

Anyway, right now I'm still feverish and too excited after watching it again to give a proper review, but I'll definitely recommend this movie to everyone, if not, you don't know what your missing...
