naanima: ([KHR] Yamamoto hurt and emos)
My LOVE for Eyeshield 21 cannot be textually rendered! It is the one series that brings me constant and consistent joy without falling into a deep, black hole of major suckage. Just finished reading chapter 322, and OMFG! Just OMFG!!!! Match Spoilers )

Have caught up to Katekyō Hitman Reborn!, just finished reading chapter 235… um, Character appearance spoilers ) I have also come to the realisation I don’t actually have ANY idea how the rings or the boxes work. Just absolutely none; every time they attempt to explain my eyes GLAZE over and my brain shut down. As far I’m concerned the rings and boxes are elementally aligned MAGICAL boxes that does MAGICAL things. This is very strange for me as I’m one of those really annoying nit-picker shounen-readers who expect internal consistency when it comes to the powers. I think this says a great deal about what I think of this series as a whole.

Read 10 volumes of Ookiku Furikabutte; SPORTS manga, you never fail me. While I quite enjoy the series, I do admit the main character Mihashi have NOT endeared himself to me in any way, shape or form. However, ABE! I LOVE you ABE! I’m unsure whether I’ll follow this series as there just isn’t enough going one with Mihashi to keep me interested. Oh, well.

Watched several Jonas Brothers interviews and performances… um, I think Korean boybands have spoiled me completely. I went into the interviews expecting some MAJOR pretty, major talent, some awesome personality traits and enough FANSERICE to make the world IMPLODE. I was sadly disappointed… while Joe is pretty and quite amusing I find Nick (?) and Kevin (?) rather meh. Actually that is not the complete truth; I find Kevin hilarious but not that physically attractive, and while I think Nick have potential I find him trying too hard to be what he isn’t for me to be that interested. So, it is with much regret that I must let go of a potential fandom full of awesome crackness.

[ profile] dreamlessness, thanks for the rec! I have caught up to Katekyo Hitman Reborn and I NEED more! It went from this strange, kind of interesting series that I may or may not follow to OMFG! WHERE IS THE NEXT CHAPTER? I have this deep LOVE for Yamamoto! LIKE COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS LOVE that MAY or MAY NOT be PLATONIC! The way the artwork evolved is just amazing – compare the first chapter to the newest chapter and it is like two mangaka drawing the same series. Sure, this series isn’t going to be on my top 5, but it is just fun to read! And YAMAMOTO, Gokudera and OMFG! Mokura is like your average psycho times a billion!

Spoilers Katekyo Hitman Reborn )

I have also caught up to Eyeshield 21. Oh gods, just oh gods, this is why I LOVE shounen manga so very MUCH! I would have a much more coherent write up except all I can say is YOUNG HIRUMA! And OMFG! GO DEVIL BATS, GO! I get terribly involved in the matches that I ended up mainlining approximately 150 chapters of the series, and everything is really jumbled up in my head at the moment.

Spoilers for E21 )

GUYS, I have MISSED shounen MANGA so very much! Please PROVIDE recs to your favourite shounen manga series. I love sports and tournament series. What I require more than anything is ENERGY and PASSIONATE characters; hence the love of shounen sports series. [ profile] perseid, what was the name of that baseball series you were talking to me about? I require names!
