Manga Review: Honey So Sweet V 8 by Amu Meguro @shojobeat


May Contain Spoilers

Honey So Sweet ended much like it began; gently, with understated standalone chapters, a little bit of angst, and a whole lot of heart. Much like Onise and Nao, the entire series was quiet and reflective, focusing on feelings and the importance of friendship. I’m glad I picked this up.

Manga Review: Beauty Bunny V 1 by Mari Yoshino

Probably Contains Spoilers

I recently subscribed to Comixology Unlimited because there are several Harlequin manga titles that I haven’t read yet. At 7 bucks a month, I figure if I read 2 graphic novels a month, it’s worth the expense. While browsing through the manga titles, I noticed Beauty Bunny. I have never heard of this one before, so I clicked the Borrow button. I think I made a mistake.

I noticed this in the community library catalog, thought it had a cute cover, and decided to request it. I knew nothing about it until I sat down and started reading it. While it shared similarities with other shoujo titles that I’ve read, I thought the characters were unique enough that I enjoyed it.

Okay, this volume got really weird and awkward during Nao and Onise’s Christmas date, and the grade is getting dinged for it. After a fun gathering with Misaki, Yashiro, and Futami, Nao and Onise find themselves – alone! They are interrupted from their tender handholding by Onise’s mother. She gives Onise chocolates, and because they have booze in them, he passes out. Seems he can’t tolerate alcohol, and even the littlest taste knocks him unconscious. Hmmmm.

Manga Review: Honey So Sweet V 4 by Amu Meguro @shojobeat


May Contain Spoilers

This series is really cute, and as a bonus, it’s only eight volumes long. Since some of the Shonen Jump series I’m following are over 20 volumes and counting, a short, compact story is appreciated. This is a slice of life romance about a group of high school friends, and how their friendships change and enhance each other. It’s funny and angsty and sweet.

May Contain Spoilers

Honey So Sweet is really sweet! The romance will give you cavities if you aren’t prepared for the sappiness of both Nao and Taiga, but it’s sappy in a good way. They are both kind, gentle teenagers, and they both have so much respect for each other’s feelings. This is a feel good, slice of life, high school drama, and this volume will have you smiling all the way through. Except for the last few pages, but more on that later.
