The Ancient Magus Bride

I usually don’t like talking about brand new mangas because they only have a couple of available, but for this one I’ll make an exception. The new manga called The Ancient Magus Bride a.k.a Mahou Tsukai No Yome was created by a brand new artist named Yamazaki Kore. I give my props to the creator of this manga, it totally sucked me into the story and before I knew it, I was at the end and am now patiently waiting for the next chapter to come out.

This manga is about a girl named Chise who suddenly ends up in an auction to be sold to a bunch of rich people. Her  suddenly being auctioned off in the beginning of the story isn’t what caught my eye it was the fact that not only was she being sold in a world where magical creatures and other beings exist, but she was bought by a very mysterious person. Now, because this is a romance manga I bet most of you are thinking she was sold to a beautiful, mysterious person or something like that, right?

If you are then, you are DEAD WRONG!

Apparently, she’s sold to a very powerful sorcerer that everyone hates for some strange reason and not only that his head is an animal skull. No, its not a mask or a disguise spell or anything like that. That’s his real face! Besides, the fact that he as a animal skull for a head, the fact that he tries to cover it up with a small veil is very funny to me. It’s not like it’s really hiding anything. The moment you see him using the veil you can already tell that his face is disfigured in some way, so why hide it when you live in a world where creatures just like him exist?

Now let’s go back to Chise. She’s a red headed 16 year old girl who is suddenly bought by this strange sorcerer, but she seems to be really cool with it. In fact, her only main concerns were what he wanted her to do for him. You would think she would try to run or at least resist a little, but that’s not the case with her. You’ll find out later, she had a pretty good reason to act the way she acting, but like always I won’t spoil it for you.

After, reading the first chapter I didn’t know if I should be happy, sad or scared for Chise. To make things really interesting in story, not only does she get bought from an auction by an animal headed sorcerer, it turns out that he bought her for two reasons. First, to make her his apprentice. Secondly, to make her his future wife.

That really caught me off guard especially the way he proposed the idea to her. This manga is quite awesome and actually reminded me of a another manga that I’ve read a long time ago, but that can wait for another time. People are always saying, ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’ or ‘Don’t let another person’s looks fool you’ in this story Chise is going to have to see if she can love a man where the person inside might be exactly the same as his cover.

Another One Bites the Dust (Jaz Parks Series)

The second book to the Jaz Parks series is,” Another One Bites the Dust”. In this book, the ass kicking duo as grown to a team and they are now on their next mission. Apparently, a crazy vampire stole armor from her old friend and current teammate, Bergman. Bergman is this paranoid, hermit type guy who is a genius that invents hi-tech gadgets for Jaz and for the government.

When he found out that the dragon armor was stolen he wanted to help bring it back. The team of five people who are Jaz (huntress), Vayl (vampire), Cole (ex-private investigator), Bergman (gadget inventor) and Cassandra (powerful psychic). I know you can already feel the heat with these people together. Bergman and Cassandra aren’t getting along because he doesn’t believe and magic and likes to push Cassandra’s buttons. I’m just waiting for her to stop and just strangle him.

Vayl and Cole aren’t getting along for obvious reasons. Jaz and Cole are getting along which leads to her and Vayl start to have a falling out. I know Vayl’s just jealous but he needs to learn how to express himself more if he wants them to be together. He seems to be the type of guy who just expects you to know what he’s thinking which she can……most of the time. Even though, they still care about each other.

That shows a lot in this book when Jaz starts to have frightening nightmare that could end up killing her. I was scared for her life while also screaming at her,”Girl, it’s a dream! Your having a dream, wake up before you die!”

It gets really intense and your just waiting for someone to pop and go crazy. There are so many close calls in this book that it’ll make you go crazy. I definitely recommend reading this as quickly as possible.

Fairy Tail

Source: http://www.mangauk.com

This popular show is centered around a group of wizards that take jobs posted at their guild. Their guild is called Fairy Tail and according to the story, theirs is really famous and for good reason.

The wizards that work at Fairy Tail are said to be so powerful and crazy that everyone says that they wouldn’t be surprised if they destroyed whole cities trying to complete their missions. Now, don’t get me wrong they aren’t evil they just over do it to the point of no return. This also puts them on the council’s radar constantly. For people, who don’t know about the magic council are a powerful group of wizards that act as the police, the jury and judge. They make sure that all the wizards around the world are following the rules.

Anyway, the main people in this anime are Lucy (the celestial wizard), Natsu (the fire wizard), Gray (the ice wizard), Erza (weapon wizard) and Happy (the talking, flying cat). I don’t know which one would be my top favorite its a tie between Natsu and Gray. I like Lucy too, but she isn’t all that powerful. Her magic is convenient sometimes, but most of the time its pretty much useless. I think that its funny that she seems to be the only normal person in Fairy Tail whose trying to get along with everyone. She gets so freaked out with just about everything that they do. Also, I was surprised that once upon a time she was thinking of joining Phantom Lord, the rival wizard guild against Fairy Tail.

When I saw how people in Phantom Lord worked I already knew she wasn’t a good fit. They were all doom and gloom and she’s all perky and sunshine.

There are so many unique characters at Fairy Tail. The show is hilarious, adventurous and full of action and magic. I can’t get enough of it! I can’t wait to see the second season to see what happens next. I have strong hopes that one day that Natsu will beat Erza and make it to the second floor of the guild. Also, hoping that Lucy and Natsu get together one day. Natsu may not realize it, but I think those two were meant to be together.

Fairy Tail is definitely a must watch. Trust me, you won’t regret it. Especially, if you like fighting, magic, adventure and plenty of mystery.

Akatsuki no Yona

(Princess Yona)

I was quick to get addicted to this anime. Akatsuki no Yona has an awesome storyline, characters and lots of action.

This story begins with a group of three friends that have been together since childhood. Yona, the princess, Hak, the princess’s bodyguard and Soo-Won, Yona’s cousin and secret crush. All three of these characters are so different and unique in there in way. That you can’t believe that their friends.

Hak, is a genius fighter with a mysterious past and a smart mouth. I think he loves ticking Yona off. Yona is the spoiled princess that gets whatever she wants. But, she isn’t a horrible person she’s actually sweet and nice. Last but not least, Soo-Won, who is Yona’s cousin. He’s handsome and just as sweet. I think he’s as spoiled as Yona, but he’s also a fighter. I don’t know if he’s just as good as Hak. But, I would like to see them fight one of these days.

If there is one thing that I didn’t like about Yona it would have to be how they should how spoiled she was. You know how rich kids or how kids act when they get, whatever, they want but when the parent finally says no, they through a tantrum. Well, in the beginning you’ll see that Yona has a secret crush on Soo-Won, so when the subject of marriage came up and she told her father that she wanted to marry Soo-Won, he said no. I think in her own way she lost it because the way they told it was if she was thinking the world was going to end.

I really don’t know why her father said no to her about marrying him. He seems like an okay guy. But, their must have been a good reason for it because he went and told her that the person who marries you will be the next king and she has to think what would make him happy.

Translation: I don’t think he would make a good king and I don’t think he likes you like that.

I kind of felt bad for her, but I think she cancelled out that feeling when all she could think about was him. She was determined to argue with him for who knows how long until she got him to agree. (Another get-what-you-want tactic.)

The whole time I felt like something wasn’t right after that arguement.Later, you see the real reason why he didn’t want her to marry him. It’s quite messed up and expected in unexpected at the same time. The poor girl was left in shock for days.

But, don’t worry the awesome and evil-looking Hak was there to save the day! After, that those two traveled all over the world because they were forced to leave their home. I knew that, eventually, some romance was going to kick into the story. Since, Soo-Won is now out the picture and she’s now traveling around with Hak, who I think has secretly liked her for a long time. He just suppressed it because he knew that she liked Soo-Won and not him.

If there is one thing I like about Hak. It’s the one thing that you don’t want to do which is get him angry. For some reason, he becomes more good-looking to me when he suddenly becomes enraged.

Anyway, if you don’t mind the incompleteness of this story then I suggest he start reading this immediately. You won’t regret it.
