Spoiler Warning!


Title: Blooming Sequence
Artist/Author: Lee Eul
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance, Yuri
Status: Ongoing (Currently 51 Chapters)

Seowoo, president of the film club, is standing outside in the rain, a welcome break from the noisy and chaotic bar behind her, when a girl with orange hair stumbles out the doors and practically into her arms. Then she begins singing “Dancing in the Rain” while… dancing in the rain. It’s a minute encounter, really, but Seowoo has seen the greatest romances bloom from the smallest moments in the movies. So when Hayoung shows up to join the film club, Seowoo – who’s not even sure what she herself is feeling – finds her heart skipping a beat.


After having finished reading Citrus, this is seriously like a breath of fresh air: a realistic, non-ecchi, slow-paced romance about girls over the age of 18. Nice!

After so many years, ten volumes, numerous specials, and even an anime adaptation, Citrus has come to an end, and I can finally, finally review one of my all-time favorite manga.

But first things first, despite the fact that most of you probably know about Citrus already, let’s start with a short summary for those who have yet to enjoy it.

After her mothers remarriage, Yuzu is forced to move into a new home and enroll into a new school. As prepared and determined as she might be, the new school and especially the student council Mei she butts heads with on the first day, give her a hard time adjusting to this new environment. When she then finds out that said student council is her new step sister, things make an even worse turn. Now add the fact that Yuzu can’t help but be attracted to her new step sister and everything is a mess…

Short Manga Review: Drei Blütezeiten [Sakikusa no Saku Koro] by Fumiko Fumi

I know, I know. This review has been done before. However, since I wasn’t the one who wrote it—and now having read the manga myself—I kinda can’t hold back. Let’s just say I have a very strong opinion when it comes to this specific work, so let me just have my release 😉

Also, click here for the guest review by FoxyLadyAyame~


Title: Drei Blütezeiten
Author: Fumiko Fumi
Year: 2011
Genre: Romance, Drama, Slice of Life, Love Triangle

Sumika, Akio, and Chinatsu are cousins who only meet during the funeral of Sumika’s father. They quickly become friends and end up spending most of their childhood days together.

Though, as time passes, things change. The twins, Akio and Chinatsu, slowly drift apart, while still staying close to Sumika. She, on the other hand, develops feelings for Akio and eventually gets together with him. However, she always knew that their relationship was not supposed to prevail….

So far, so good. The story doesn’t sound too exciting, but it could turn out quite entertaining, to say the least. Now, after having finished reading this, I can’t say it was very exciting or entertaining. First of all, the story simply seemed weird and hard to follow.

Story: 9.5/10

During the late 1950’s, in a slowly dying coalmine town, at the foot of a mountain, somewhere remote within the United States, two girls struggling to grasp the purpose that their parents have given them, find greater purpose in one another. From an encounter in their early childhood to the setting of the story itself, they spend every possible moment together they can find. Surrounded by stubborn townsfolk that continue to believe in the old glory of the mine when it was young, their lives are shadows of those very same people that raised them. What’s worse is that as the ones who call themselves their parents continue to press that idea down upon them, they have already been convinced that they will die in the coalmine town in much the same way everyone else will.

Let’s Talk About: Fluttering Feelings by Ssamba

fluttering feelings yuri manhwa manga

(from left to right) Seol-a and No-rae

Since the Manga, or Manhwa, is far from over right now, I still want to use the opportunity and talk about it, so let’s do another “Let’s talk about…”.

It admittedly took me quite a while to continue reading this one, since I stopped right at chapter 10 back when this was the most recent chapter out. After quite a few months had passed, I finally picked it up again, and oh god, I can tell you, being able to read 50+ new chapters of something that amazing is simply the best feeling ever.

Though, let’s start with the actual post now Continue reading
