The Fluttering Heel
Posted on Jun 30th / Genre: Shojo
This story turns all the shojo tropes on its head, and Sawa is a great multi-dimensional character whose passion clearly shines through in everything she does, be it her work, hobbies, or love. Like her sharktooth Venus fly trap namesake, she walks a balancing act between plant-like fragility and carnivorous strength. The story does a great job of blending in humor and drama, and the twists and turns will definitely keep you reading! Will Sawa be able to reconcile her romantic ideals with her gritty passion?

Jun is just so lost in her own world and keeps getting into misunderstandings every chapter... you can't help but feel bad for her, but it's honestly kind of relatable. Not only that, Jun's interactions with the supporting cast just make me want to keep reading. This manga is great, and that's no fantasy!

Nekomiya and the Cat Shrine
Posted on Jan 15th / Genre: Shojo
Since each story is basically self-contained, there's no grandiose plot here. In other words, this manga is the distilled essence of taking a break and looking at cat pictures. If that sounds right up your alley cat, then you owe it to yourself to open up a new tab(by) and scratch that post and that itch with "Nekomiya and the Cat Shrine!"

And OMG, both of them are so cute! It's so clear how they're such good friends, but the way they have no idea what they're doing is a real breath of fresh air from the usual "instantly a master of romance" trope! I bet anyone reading this will instantly feel better about their own love life! And even though their attempts to find what love is don't really blossom into a textbook (or comic book in this case) romance, the two of them are such a good pair that you can't help but root for them on their next attempt!
You can do it Mamoru! I believe in you, Miyuki! Please don't mess this up, for all our sakes! Enter the world of coupledom so you don't just become another dumb couple!

Okay, I guess I should talk about the story and stuff, too. Anna is a locksmith that lives with her mysterious cat, Clavay. Also, their locksmith shop is in a mystical dimension that only appears to those who need to unlock something. Pretty nice digs, right? Anyway, the manga is split into different short stories, all involving some kind of mystery or problem that somehow needs to be solved with a cat. And a lock, too. But, mostly a cat.
There are all sorts of different stories in this 200+ page volume, ranging from a girl who loves the piano but is jealous of a boy who plays better than her (and who also loves cats), a spoiled cat who hates the frilly dresses his owner puts on him, even a restless spirit who possesses a... well, you get the point. For those of you who prefer a bit of sweet romance, there's also a story of a boy who has a crush on a girl who likes his twin brother (and he has a really cute pet cat). If you like lighthearted adventure comics, check out Clavay's Keys for a story that's paw-sitively sure to unlock your heart and have you going, "Aww!"

This story takes place with the past and present interspersed. When Chika happens to run into Kataru for the first time six years later, it's as if those summer memories from all those years ago have bubbled up to the surface and are reaching up to a slow boil. And that's exactly what Asuka Sakashita is great at doing in this story! Each chapter starts out leaving you wondering what will come next, and slowly builds up to a heart-pounding climax, only to leave you hanging for the next chapter. I admit I couldn't put it down myself without reading everything in one sitting!
Chika and Kataru, as well as Kataru's younger sister Yuki, are really interesting and fleshed-out characters who react to the manga's themes of love, despair, loss, and change in realistic ways. Both of them deal with sadness and pain differently, and the story takes some surprising turns as their relationship develops! Just because summer is over, it doesn't mean you have to be sad. Check out Summertime Blues and cure your own malaise!

It's happily ever after whether she likes it or not! And, guess what, it's none other than Aiji Aoto, the boy she absolutely hates!
Despite all the crazy situations Momoko finds herself in with Aiji, she's determined to stay strong and not lose to her stupid curse. Besides, there's no way the curse is even real, right!? Will she succumb to her sweet happy ending after all? Don't be a hater and check it out for yourself!
