Japanese Comic books are very famous in the world. Besides funny comic books , readers all over the world are attracted by romantic ones.
Beside a fan of foods,I am also a fan of Japanese comic book and in this post I want to share with you some romantic comic book that I have read. Just add them into your collections to read when you have free time especially on special occasion such as valentine day.

1. Full moon wo sagashite



This book revolves around an orphan girl named Kouyama Mitsuki who wishes to be a singer. However she suffers from throat cancer which prevents her from making her dream becometrue.
Everything seems to be impossible until one day, she met two Shinigami (death god) who told her that she has only 1 year left to live. This urges her to overcome all difficulties to follow her dream.
It is two Shinigani whose name are Sakurai Eichi and Takuto Kira that help Mitsuki a lot so that she can continue her career as a singer. She loves Sakurai Eichi who used to be her friend when she was in the orphange.
I really admire Kouyama Mitsuki because she has a very strong will. She gives me a lesson that is never give up when facing to difficulties. The romantic love of Kouyama Mitsuki and Eichi is also admirable. Love can give people strength to do anything!

2. Hibi Chouchou


This is a romantic and funny comic book written by Morishita Suu. This comic is about the daily life of school boys and school girls with concern about friendship, love. The centre of attention is Suiren Shibazeki – an innocent, shy with boys yet very beautiful. A lot of school boys pays attention to her.
However there is one boy who is not attracted by Shibazeki’s beauty, his name is Kouha. Kouha is a strong man but he is shy with girls. He does not care much about Shibazeki but love bloomed between the two of them when they have chance to talk and contact to each other.
I love this comic book most because it describes the daily life of school boys and girl truthfully. The writer seem to understand the psychology of teenagers. When reading this comic book, I am reminded of my childhood when I go to school.

3. Nodame Cantabilen

This comic book revolves around two main characters who have contrasting personalities. They are Noda Megumi (Nodame) and Shinichi Chiaki. They are genius of a famous music academy named Momogaoka.
Nodame is a talented piano student of this academy however she always wishes to be a pre-school teacher. While Chiaki always wants to be a conductor. They met each other and helped each other to follow their dream.
When you read this comic book you will feel a romantic, pure and beautiful love going through the book. They have such a beautiful love that many people have to admire. There is no argument, no sulkiness and no jealousy in their love.
What I admire most in this comic book is also their love. However it is not the appearance of love that I admire. They show me a very different definition of love. Love means helping each other better.

4. Hana-Kimi


This is a famous comic book written by Hisaya Nakajo. The main character of this comic book is Ashiya Mizuki, a Japanese girl living in America. She admires a high-jump athlete named Sano Izumi a lot when she watches a sport programme.
One day they accidentally met each other when Nakajo was caught by hooligans and Izumi rescused her. Unfortunately Izumi injured and he did not participate in high-jump any longer. Nakajo thinks that it is her fault for making Izumi stop playing high-jump so she decides to go to Japan to persuade Izumi.
Their love grow since Nakajo became a student of Izumi’s school. This is a romantic love story for school-age children. Their love is not purely love as other couple because besides love, they care, encourage and help each other so that both of them become better. This is what I really love when I read comic book about love of school child.

I thought I’d write up a quick post to show that this blog isn’t dead… at least not yet.

The pictures of the food are from an awesome lunch that I had last month with Amy and Ryan at The Adore near Union Square.  I didn’t take any pictures of us while there, so I just stuck in some random pictures of us.

Order of awesomeness:  Hanging out with Amy & Ryan > Duck Sandwich > Fruit Tarts

If you have the chance, go there for lunch and sit by the window.






I was clicking through the Lunch Studio blog the other day and came across their Parisi Bakery post, which featured this ridiculously awesome looking sandwich.  Needless to say, after seeing that I decided that I needed to go there for lunch.

A quick read through of the Interwebs and a few Foursquare tips will tell you that Parisi’s is known for two things: their sandwiches and their long lines.  I’ve been there twice now, and I can vouch that both their sandwiches are fantastic and that their lines do indeed require some patience.

If you’re in the area, however, you should make it a point to stop by Parisi’s Bakery.  As Lunch Studio mentions in their post, you will not be disappointed

I quickly realized after moving into my relatively new apartment on 53rd Street that the only restaurant in the area that consistently has a waiting line outside of it every night is Totto Ramen.  That being said, it took me almost 2 months to actually go in there and try out the ramen.  I’m not exactly the biggest fan of waiting in lines, but it also actually took that long for us to be able to simply walk into Totto Ramen and get a table.  So I guess the question then becomes… in the future, is the wait justified?

After seeing a disappointing performance at UCB Theatre with Anne and Paul, we decided that it was finally time to eat at Totto Ramen.  As you can see in the picture below, I decided to order the Totto Miso Ramen.  I can now say with complete certainty that it is worth the wait at Totto Ramen.  I’m not sure what this says about the ramen, but I think that I ate the entire bowl in like less than three minutes.  My favorite part was the broth though, as it somehow managed to be very flavorful and yet light at the same time.

I hear good things about Ippudo in the east village, so I think that will be my next ramen stop.  Any others in the City that I NEED to go to?

About taste foods, love it!!

Genna was kind enough to invite me to the opening launch party for the new brgr on the upper east side that her company, Channel V Media, was organizing.  Okay, maybe it was more like I got an email from Genna saying,“Can you please come and blog about it?  PLEASE?!?! …  There will be free burgers, fries, shakes, beer, wine and cookies.”

Free burgers, fries, shakes, beer, wine, and cookies???  I guess I’ll go, if I have to… the things I do for Genna.

The event ended up being was quite fun.  Got to meet some interesting people, which includes finally getting to meet the food blogger Miss Tiffie and her boyfriend.  The heads of brgr, US Wellness Meats, and Ronnybrook Farm all spoke and hung out all night.  The food was definitely right on as well.  Favorite new milkshake is the blueberry-pomegranate.  Favorite new burger is the blue sky brgr.  Favorite new cow is grass-fed.

Thinking we should arrange a burger crawl around NYC.  Maybe get 4 people together and just cut it into quarters at each place?  Based on the White Castle contest, that means we can hit up 18 burger joints all in one day.
