So I've decided that the only way to give a proper review on these particular books is to do a gif review.

Mello ❣ Illium ✮Harry✮ ☀Myrnin☀ Torin Ichimaru

As a budding poet and lyricist, Aine is on her way to an audition one fateful afternoon. Absentmindedly stepping into the street, she barely avoids getting struck by an oncoming vehicle. Not only is the cute teenager lucky to be alive, but her brush with death turns out to be a date with destiny. The driver of the car just happens to be Sakuya, the charismatic and fabulously handsome lead singer for a band called Lucifer. In short order, Sakuya and his crew compose a song using Aine's l

BOO! Stupid Ralph, I hate him. I'm not going to lie, he's pretty hot, but the guy has some serious issues. He's obsessed with some crazy scheme to bring Sakuya and Lucifer's downfall. Whenever Ralph showed up, I wanted to punch someone. He's the typical smarmy half-brother that appears in many mangas. We learned his reasons for being such a slimeball, but I still thought he took things a bit far. It was messed up that he (view spoiler) ...more

I've owned these books for a while but recently re-read them. I have to say, this is one series that completely took me by surprise. I'd seen it on the shelves but dismissed them unfairly. The following review is for the entire series.

I love the artwork and story in this series. I especially love how the actual pairing off happened so quickly in relation to other series, which I like. (It's one of the reasons I loved Kare Kano as much as I did.) There's the typical "I luff them but someone is fi

This second volume continues the saga of Aine and Sakuya's budding romance and we follow the lucky lyricist and her luscious lead singer through their latest trials and tribulations, this time around involving Sakuya's American half brother, Ralph Grazer.

It never fails to amaze me how everyone in these types of stories always falls for the lead heroine, no matter how weak and lame she may be. Aine is not special and author/manga-ka Mayu Shinjo hasn't succeeded to me in bringing her uniqueness to

I gotta say I did not enjoy this volume of Sensual Phrase. I really found a lot of issues with this one. You know how sometimes you just enjoy the quirky things and tropes that go on in manga and they turn out to be fun? Well, that isn't one of those times. The behavior of the characters in this volume is really over the top, and ridiculous. Everything happens way too fast, and the overblown drama spoils the mood.

Oh, and there is one of the worst manga tropes, the evil caucasian foreigner. It r

I call it Kaikan Phrase, but that is because I speak Japanese. I loved this series, I thought that idea of falling in love with a rock star was epic, it made me want to write dirty songs and find a justin timberlake. I have to say his blue eyes was cool, I knew he had Caucasian in him because of that, not because Japanese people can't have blue eyes naturally, they can my friend does, but because that seemed like a logical twist. I didn't like his brother though but his first idea on how to snag ...more

Another wonderful series by Mayu Shinjo!! Sakuya and Aine are absolutely one of my favorite ships and this series is not as smutty/ sex based so far as many of the others written. However, Aine's naiveness is really frustrating (I don't know how one could be so naive at that age. I was never that gullible even when I was a child to foolishly believe people the way she does), but Sakuya is a pretty devoted bf/lover. He doesn't hesitate to turn the tables if anybody tries to screw with him and his ...more
I actually like this series which is surprising (the whole rockstar image doesn't interest me in the slightest). it is receiving 3 stars from me because even though this manga is what im currently reading, it doesn't really differ from any of the other shojo type books I've read. but as they say, good things come to those who wait, so maybe it will get better and i'll become accustomed to it.
This novel is the big build of to when Anie finally losses her virginity, and I have to say the big moment is not as good as I remember. I really hate Sakuya half brother Ralph, and find his character to unbelievable, and remember being really happy when he was no longer apart of the series.

LOL. Reminds me of the time when Bieber fans send death threats to Selena.

The story is so predictable and just bad in general. Okay, that is the end of this manga for me.
