Confession 7: Cafe

Not counting OPs and EDs, little Cafe has only appeared in one episode: Yumeiro Patissiere episode 6. Some would say that I'm moving too fast; that maybe I should wait until he's spoken more than three lines in his entire anime career to de...


First Impressions: Yumeiro Patissiere

Summary: A clumsy girl who's always been the screw-up of her family gets admitted to an elite chef school. This show can be evaluated in two ways: as a shoujo anime, or as a brilliant piece of propaganda put out by a secret society of baker...


Japanator Recommends: Boys Over Flowers: Jewelry Box

At a glance, Boys Over Flowers may seem like your typical shoujo manga, and perhaps at its heart that's what it is. Still, once you've fallen in love with the characters of Yoko Kamio's epic tale, you're likely to never forget them. It take...


Japanator Recommends: Kimi Ni Todoke

Loving shojo manga is one of those half blessing/half curse things: you know more or less what direction they're going to go in after a few chapters, the girl is always shy and bumbling and the hottest boy in school for some reason always e...


The sexy Hakuoki Shinsengumi Kitan otome game to get an anime

Yukari Ichijo's Nichiyoubi wa Issho ni manga getting a remake

I have to admit that I had a really hard time trying to find anything about this manga since it came out in 1988. I don't know if the manga was popular or not, but Yukari Ichijo was the same mangaka who did Yukan Club, which received a dram...


Fushigi Yuugi: Genbu Kaiden is on a hiatus

Japanator review: Kimi to Scandal! by Furumiya Kazuko

Japanator review: Kaichou wa Maid-sama! 1 by Fujiwara Hiro

Contrary to what the front cover and the Kaichou wa Maid-sama! title lead you to expect, Ayuzawa Misaki (on the right) is *not* a meido ~de arimasu. At least, not in any classic moe sense. Instead, she's the first female student council pre...
