Aku no Hana

It has been a while I got this excited for an anime. In fact, I can't remember the last anime that got me all worked out like this. Needless to say, I think Aku no Hana is a very awesome anime. I definitely recommended it to everyone.

A Year Older: Again

It’s that day when I got another level up in life. I’m turning a year older again today. So many things have changed in a course of a year. I read what I wrote on my birthday last year and I almost choked with laughter at how ridiculous everything sounds.

Goodbye 2012 and Hallo 2013

So overall, year 2012 has indeed been kinder to me. I have achieved what I set out to achieve but most importantly, I unexpectedly found love which is easily the highlight of the year for me.

Light Writings: Love II

I need an outlet to express how I feel nowadays. To be honest, things are going too good for me at the moment to the point that I am sort of living in fear for I do not want these extremely good feelings, and the love I have for him to end. If all these are gone tomorrow, there is a big probability that I might lose sanity.

Light Writings: Crush II

Welp, looks like we are having this conversation again after so many years. Well 2 years and 3 months to be exact. The last time I wrote about my crush, I was in a different state of mind where I know it can be nothing more than just that, a crush.

This is the first manhwa I read and I effing love it. One look at Michael (or Mikael), Baroona (or Baruna) and Ares, and the way that the manga is drawn, I immediately fell victim to addiction.

At first it was quite confusing since I was used to read from right to left. It was not until the fourth pages that I realized that you are supposed to read it as usual, not like a manga from Japan.

Anyway, it is about three young kids turns warriors in a war of carnage (fucking carnage FTW!!). They might look innocent but each has strange and dark past that constituted the savageness of their nature. Along the way, the manhwa also introduced other excellent, if not as good, characters: Nikolai, Cygnus, Esteban, Genesis, any many others. They all added depth to the story and before you knew it, you are attached to each of these characters. I was in tears whenever one of them got killed.

The biggest surprise for me however was when I found out that Michael is actually the young king of Isiris and he became the mercenaries at Chronos just to learn the weakness of the country so he knows what to do when he wants to conquer Chronos. His first mission as a king was to kill all the mercenaries. Yes, they were his fellow friends. Might I add that he killed without mercy. Ares who found out the truth is full of vengeance towards Michael. Baruna obviously is on Ares' side.

It pains me to know that Michael would probably be dead when this manga is over, killed by Ares. I certainly hope it wasn't so. I like him the most.

I really enjoy this manhwa and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Claymore/Berserk. I have no qualm to give it full mark because I love it that much.

I read this because I watch the anime. But soon enough I realize the anime has phailed me yet again because they didn't do justice to the awesomeness of this manga. The story line is outstanding. They twist and turn the plot and even after reading along this far, I still have no freaking idea of how the ending would be like. The art is superb. I have no complains. Most of the characters are an eye candy (read: bishounen extravaganza!). Not to mention the depth of each of the characters. No one is shallow.

However I do have a slight fault but it has nothing to do with the manga, more of the scanlation group's fault. They need to seriously do some updates! Ya hear that you lazy people?!!


Anyway, I really enjoy this manga and have no qualm to give it full marks.

This is also one of the rarest manga where I can't find any annoying or unlikeable characters. Kudos.
