i was always weary of picking this one up. depending on how it's done, sometimes i have a lot of issues with shonen ai. which is what i had heard this one was. but seeing as i have not read it, should it be one of those i take a chance on anyway?

what's shonen ai?
I personally really liked this one.

guy x guy, or "guy love". but honestly, sometimes i have issues when it's the typical girl x guy sort of relationships. this series always seems like it would be cute when i look at it at bookstores. so, i'm always torn about if i should start it or not.

oh. If I remember correctly there isn't any of that.... except some of the angels/devils don't have an exact given gender.

oh, well now i feel silly for being cautious about it. i should definitely pick it up the next time that i see it in the store.

Unless I've forgotten something, it should be safe. I don't remember reading anything like that...so you should be good :)

i'm excited! i don't think it's at my library so i'll have to keep my eyes peeled for it at the bookstore

and someday in many many years, when you die or before that if you decide you want to sell it, it would go, as a collection all together, for a lot of money! hahaha! :D But I'd never sell it if I was you.

lol. i have thought about selling the ones that i don't want to complete, or don't like anymore. i hope that my sisters or boyfriend would want all my books when i die, but if not, i hope they get donated to a library or something. that way lots of people can enjoy them. it's a shame when books don't get read.

i read the first two in the series. soo cute!! love it! i'm so glad it was recommended to me.

i just had to finish it online. it was soo good!

lol. i do have a tons of books. it seems that i've been going back to older series lately though. which is fine, they're still really good, but i have a harder time finding them since they are typically on either a small circulation or no longer being printed.

i love re-reading my books too! i think over christmas i'm going to re-read vampire game. i finally got the last couple of books, and the ones i was missing in between. but to fully understand everything, i need to start the series over. i keep forgetting who is who, and backstories. then i wait another year to buy the next book. lame...
plus i have to finish re-reading hana kimi for like the 20th time. well, let's face it, i have lots to re-read just b/c they are fun to read. haha...

as you go on, it just gets more complex. it's way too many people with different connections to everyone else for me to keep straight. but i've been meaning to finish it off for a while. but it has it's cute and funny moments too. so it's not like i haven't liked what i've read so far.


message 17: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
yeah. that's how they get you. you could hate the series, but when you see it in the store you think that you just have to complete it for the whole set, or something


message 18: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
that's it exactly!! i think that way every time i see "vampire knight." i read through 3, and i honestly wanted to cry. it was awful. i know it's rated highly, and wildly popular, but i thought it blew. so every time i see it in the store, i think, 'surely i should give it another go.' then i think about reaching for it. then i think, 'geez, i hates this series, with a passion, why am i reaching for it?' and this happens every single time


message 19: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
yeah, that's way too long to actually go somewhere with a story. i mean, ppl have to like it to that point for it to even fill 7 books. but it's okay to not like something, no matter how popular it was.

if you like detailed architecture, you should really look into utena. crazy architecture in both the book and movie. well, the movie is freakishly more detailed, but if you do more than just look, i would read the book, well manga. i will say it right now, it's a weird story, but really good


message 21: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
totally worth it, but yeah, strange might be an understatement. but the manga made more sense than the movie did. plus it has fencing, and who doesn't like fencing?


message 22: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
yes, it is oodles of fun.

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
i wouldn't know. there are all sorts of differences with swordplay and whatnot. it's tough for me to keep up.


message 24: by Starbubbles, event coordinator type person (new)

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
yeah. kind of like all of the different types of demons there are, and what they are called. no one ever really puts that in the back of the book. speaking of which, i see "oro" a lot in manga, but i feel foolish that when i look in the back, it's not there. so it would seem that i should either already know what it means or should be able to deduce what it means. since i can't/haven't i feel more than slightly dumb.

Starbubbles | 649 comments Mod
lol! when i actually need it, it's not in there.
