The Ghost’s Wife

Twitter.comAlright everyone I have another comic/manga for you today. This one is called,” The Ghost Wife” by Saejung. Personally, I think it should be re-titled to, “The Ghost’s Wife” because it makes more sense, but that’s just me.

This revolves around a girl named Liz Kim who is an ordinary high school girl enjoying her everyday life (You know the usual) until she looks out the window one night to see a strange boy eating cats near her house. The boy notices her and stealthily makes his way inside her room. At this point you can tell he isn’t human, but when Liz comes face to face with him; he only says two things to her before she passes out.

Should I eat you or make you my wife?

Since then the ghost has been constantly following her around; protecting her from other evil spirits in the area. As the story progresses, you realize how powerful he really is. He can be seen or become invisible to anyone he chooses except Liz, he can go through other spirits like tissue paper and he can hypnotize anyone into believing whatever it is he wants you to believe. So, he was an unusually powerful.

He made himself so comfortable invading her personal life on a daily basis that everyone around her has started calling him, Damon. As if it was the most normal thing in the world, if that wasn’t enough problems for this poor girl to handle another powerful ghost appears and claims that other stronger ghosts are going to be coming after her, too. Now her current ghost problem becomes her protector instead.

 

The only thing that I don’t get is how Liz went from not being able to see any spirits for so long to seeing all of them all of a sudden. I can’t blame Damon for all of it because he was even surprised when she saw him even though he barely shows his emotions most of the time. So, what sparked the supernatural foresight? This series is still ongoing, so maybe they’ll reveal that fact later on in the story.

I was really hesitate to get into this story because it was ongoing and the art style didn’t really catch my eye at first, but once I got into the story I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. My only question now is how is their new-found relationship is going to work? He’s still a ghosts after all? Is he planning on killing in the end so that they can be together forever? If you want to see the answer to these questions then your going to have to read yourself. Enjoy yourselves, everyone.

Let’s Play

senscritique.comHello again, everyone!

Today I’ll be talking about another comic from Webtoon called, ” Let’s Play,” by Mongie. The main character ends up being a cute but nerdy girl named, Sam who has always dreamed of being a game developer. She worked her ass off until she was finally able to make her first game and shared it on a game developer site so others could play it and give her some feedback on how she did.

Things were going well until a famous gamer youtuber named, Marshall Law, played her game one day and gave it an awful review. Since, then things started going downhill for the poor girl. Her confidence along with her game developer reputation and dreams were dashed by one single internet icon. If things couldn’t get any worse, her new neighbor ends up being Marshall himself.

Pinterest.comThis story is really entertaining and I love the little emotion moments where the creator makes a person’s emotion look like shadow people. Also, I love the characters in this story and my favorite characters would have to Sam and Link and not just because I want them to end up together really badly. Sam is such a sweet girl and the embodiment of a gamer girl who needs to break of her shell. Link is her exact opposite, he’s not into games as much as she is, but he cares a lot about her and his really protective moments towards her are the cutest.

Besides, her life starting to bloom; she hasn’t given up on her dreams, even though, she was kicked to the curb and thrown away by the internet. Also, I want to put out there that it turns out that Marshall isn’t an asshole or anything. He’s just a popular gamer that didn’t realize how much power he has over the fate of people like Sam.

s7.instago.pwThis comic is still ongoing and I patiently wait for updates, so I can see if Sam and Link finally end up together and everyone else gets over their issues and problems. If your into slice of life or romance type of reads then this would be something I recommend that you read to pass the time. But, if you rather wait for it to be complete then I understand and give you props for your patience for waiting that long for that glorious moment to arrive. Hope you enjoy the story!

Karneval

The anime called, “Karneval”, is exactly what it intended it to be while I was reading it, A big freaking carnival.

The story starts out with a thief named Gareki whose intention was to break into a rich lady’s house and steal all her priceless possessions. You the usual thing that thieves do. But, what he didn’t expect to find was a clueless white-haired and red-eyed boy named Nai and the rich lady he was stealing from to be a crazy, psychotic monster.

I wasn’t just calling her a monster to say that she was a bitch…..well she was that too, but that’s not the point. She was actually a REAL monster in disguise who tried to kill the both of them. Anyway, after that Gareki and Nai were practically inseperable after they made a deal with each other.

Nai was a clueless boy who knows nothing about the world or himself. All he knows was that a guy named Karuko was taking care of him when one day he mysteriously vanished and never returned. The only thing he left behind was a Circus ID bracelet which Gareki now wants. But, Nai says if he helps find Karuko then he can have it which leads to them traveling together.

I loved watching these together because Nai’s naïve and clueless nature drove Gareki up  the wall. Gareki can get easily annoyed and his annoyance level hits the rooftops when they meet Circus. Circus is an elite organization that goes after highly wanted criminals with special abilities like the rich monster lady in the beginning. Everything about Circus reminded me of an Alice and Wonderland themed Circus. Their organization also performs for the people to let them know that their mission was an success.

Speaking of people, my favorite person in Circus would have to be Yogi. His happy and go lucky attitude gets on Garkei’s nerves so much he practically goes crazy with anger everytime that Yogi is around. Also, Yogi apparently has a whole other personality that is only awakened when he’s near death. They call him ‘Silver Yogi’ when he’s like this. The regular Yogi is a grown playful child and Silver Yogi is like a child that has some serious trust issues. But, their both awesome in their own ways.

Theirs so much mystery and action spinning around this anime that I can’t get enough of it. Its like every time a question is answered another one arises right after. I would definitely recommend this and yes it is also a manga and an anime so you could enjoy both if you want. I hope you enjoy this action packed fantasy world as much as I did.

Love So Life

The manga called,” Love So Life” is about a 16 year old girl named Shiharu whose dream was to someday own her own daycare center. Her only problem was that she was an orphan and saved up every penny she earned working part time at a local daycare. Basically, she worked and went to school all the time and didn’t really have a social life unless you count her playing with the kids.

Until one day, a guy named Seiji asks her to work for him to take care of his twins, Akane and Aoi because they seemed to like her a lot and only listen to her. He also offered double the pay which was an added bonus to her and she quickly took the job and I was glad she did. Turns out the twins don’t listen to him, at all. They stay up all night, they keep cluttering up the house with their toys, cry for no reason, get into fights with each other, etc.

Plus Seiji is a popular TV announcer who really cares about his image when it comes to work, but the moment he gets home his body shuts down and he can barely make it to bed before he collapses. Which is really funny to watch in this manga because sometimes he will actually try to stay awake and try to talk to Shiharu, but his sudden mood change just ends up scaring the girl to death.

If you’ve read a lot of manga like I have then what was going to happen in this story was pretty much obvious to me. She was going to fall in love with Seiji, gets too attached to the twins and probably become a happy unofficial family. And what love story wouldn’t be complete without a love rival, so I wasn’t surprised when they put the hot headed, Noa, into the story who secretly had a crush on Shiharu.

The only reason why I kept reading it was because it was so heart warming and that the twins are so adorable and love reading what they would do next.

Martin Mystery

This older cartoon called “Martin Mystery”  which revolves around three people who work for “The Center.” The Center is a secret organization that investigates paranormal activities all around the world. The three agents that they send are Martin, Diana and Java.

Martin is a normal teenage boy who loves to flirt with pretty girls but mostly ends up making himself look like a fool in front of them. Also, he seems to be the main character and leader of the group much to Diana’s dismay. Diana is Martin’s step-sister who is smart and seems to be the common sense in the group and loves telling Martin how stupid he could be sometimes.

In the beginning of the show it doesn’t really make it clear that what their relationship was. Almost, immediately, I felt a love connection between the two so I thought at first that they could be two people who haven’t yet become a couple. So, I was really surprised to find out that they were actually siblings. Turns out though that in the comic they were lovers but decided to change it so they would end up siblings instead.

Anyway, the team’s last member is Java, the cave man. I don’t just say that he’s a cave man just because he looks like one, its because he actually is one. They found his body in an iceberg and made him an addition to the group. Now he serves as Martin and Diana’s friend and the team’s muscle.

When ‘The Center’ calls them for an assignment, Martin uses his high tech watch to find a portal in the school that takes them to The Center. Sometimes, the portals end up in the most ridiculous of places and I kind of wonder how no one hasn’t gotten suspicious.

As I watched the show, I thought that Men in Black had a lot of influence in it. Aliens and other creatures worked in the organization, they got cool gadgets and no one knew what they did. This show is filled with aliens, ghosts, zombies and other paranormal beings that you can think of and also filled with romance, comedy and friendship. It is really enjoyable to watch.

Manga or Comics: What’s the difference?

Now I have heard this question like a billion times. I’ve also been in situations where I could be reading a manga somewhere and I can hear someone nearby saying that she’s reading a comic book. But, I’m not its manga! Now to the untrained eye they may look similar, especially, if you’re not a fan of manga or comic books. But, there is a great difference between them and for me I think I can sum it all up in three major differences.

1. Manga’s origin comes from the Japanese. Americans made comics.

2. When reading a comic book it will always be in color, while reading manga you’ll rarely see it. The cover and first couple of pages might be in color, but don’t get your hopes up. Also, when you read a comic its left to right like your reading a book. For mangas its right to left.

3. Now what I think is the most important difference between the two is the drawn line on how far they will go. For comics they’ll go a certain extent of how much their going to show in it. Like for most comics, they won’t show too much. They will either censor it or not put it in at all, but imply that it did happen. Mangas, on the other hand, will do the exact opposite. They will show you everything that goes in the story as much as possible. You want to watch someone’s body get torn to shreds? You got it. You want to watch two people have sex? No problem. Do you want to agonizingly read someone get raped page after page? They’ll show that, too. The point is that mangas will go way, way further than a comic would and that’s what people like about it.

I guess I ended up telling you four differences than just three, but that’s okay. Also, I would like to let you know that I was not trying to say that manga is better than comics or vise versa. No that’s not the point I was trying to make I just wanted to explain the obvious differences between the two. Some people like mangas and some like comics, its not a bad thing. Both give joy and entertainment to its readers and that’s what its about. I hope you’ll enjoy both or one or the other to the fullest.
