Vampire Knight: Revisited! Saturday, Aug 26 2006 

I’m so into this manga! I’ve read 26 chapters so far (all that’s scanlated) and I’m in the process of looking for the books at the mo! Hell, I’m even making my own avatars and siggie pics from it!!

Augie March Sunday, Aug 20 2006 

Just discovered Augie March – coolest band ever! ‘One Crowded Hour’ has been stuck in my head for the past three weeks, and I didn’t know who sung it until today! Long live nova969 for actually telling us the band’s name!! Wooh!

🙂

Manga of the Day: Vampire Knight Sunday, Aug 20 2006 

Quite obviously, the manga of the day is: Vampire Knight! I can’t even remember how I found this one, it seems like I’ve been online all day… Suddenly I found myself obsessing over one title that I found that sounded kind of nifty. So, onto Vampire Knight!

Synopsis: Um, seeing as I’ve only read three chapters of the first volume I’ll tell you what I know so far…

Yuuki is a 15-16 year old girl, seemingly a regular student at a rather prestigious looking school. We are told from the beginning though that there is something different about this school. There is, apparently, a day shift of students and a night shift of students. The night shift of students are all eerily good looking… And have certain cravings that the day students know nothing about. This is where Yuuki and her ‘brother’ Zero come in – they are what is referred to as the “Guardians”, the two students set up to ‘protect’ the night shift from the prying eyes of the day shift students. Decked out with their weaponry they patrol the school grounds at night, keeping the day students and the night students separated.

Yuuki seems to have a crush on one of the night shift students, a handsome boy by the name of Kaname. Kaname, incidentally, rescued Yuuki from a vampire attack when she was five years old. Yuuki has no memory of her life before the vampire attack, and I think they’re going to explore that angle a bit later on in the series.

Zero, also a survivor of a vampire attack, starts to exhibit strange behaviours, and seems to have a growing interest in Yuuki’s neck…

What will happen? Can a Vampire and a Human being carry on a ‘normal’ relationship? Will Zero be able to continue as a day shift student? Will Yuuki and Zero ever be able to stay awake during classes after patrolling all night?

 Rating: 4 ‘fang marks’ out of 5 – I’m all intrigued and, to quote ‘Interview with the Vampire’, I desperately “want some more…”. The artwork is pretty neat, there is an abundance of ‘bishie’ boys, and the school uniforms aren’t stereotypically tight-and-short as they are in so many school manga – I’m definitely going on the search for more Vampire Knight!

I read the scanlations of this online, so if you look around you should be able to find them – and, of course, buy the manga from stores and support the industry! If you don’t, evil trolls will steal your socks while you sleep!

Return of Dog Boy! Wednesday, Aug 16 2006 

I’m so happy! I flipped on ‘Adult Swim Anime Action’ on the Cartoon Network last night, and discovered that they are re-showing InuYasha from the beginning! Again! Hahaha! This is the third time that they’ve shown it now, and I bet you they’ll stop at episode 54! Again! Hahaha!

Then again, I’ve seen / I own up to episode 126, so I can’t complain. 🙂

Manga of the Week: Emma Wednesday, Aug 16 2006 

I was supposed to go to ‘Animania’ (Sydney Anime Thingy) last weekend, but due to unforseen circumstances and lack of interest from other parties this little trip was cancelled. Dagnabbit. I’m sure it was a great day. *sighs deeply*

So, to make up for my ‘lack of trip to animania’, I decided to download and read an entire series of manga that I hadn’t heard of.

I had a quick squizzy around *insert name of popular download stop here* and discovered ‘Emma’. It was totally worth it, downloading all 52 files… heh – took all day too! And I liked the scanlation so much I’m going to buy the books (as soon as I have funds).

Synopsis: Emma is a maid, working in Victorian era London for an ex-governess. One of her mistress’ ward’s, William, comes to visit one day, and they begin to develop a relationship with one another.

Sure, you may think, sounds normal enough. But back in ‘the old days’ maids couldn’t be seen fraternising with gentlemen like that.

Thus begin the trials faced by Emma and William as they pursue their ill-matched pairing, facing all manner of trials and trying to snatch as many sweet moments together as they can.

“Emma” covers a range of social issues, but not only that includes interesting side stories including William’s friendship with the young Indian prince Hakim, an arranged engagement to a young society lady named Eleanor, and the various different types of servants and maids that work in the different houses the characters live and work in during the story. Throw in a kidnapping, and a touch of ‘Pygmalion’, and you’ve got yourself a a pretty entertaining storyline!

Will Emma the maid and William the gentlemen end up together? How will the society snobs deal with the social repercussions? What will the neighbours think? Read all 52 chapters for yourself and find out! (Then buy the books – we have to support the industry!)

Rating: 3 ‘maids uniforms’ out of 5 – there were some slow moments, but these were generally made up for in the next chapter. The ending was satisfactory, leaving it open for more volumes in the future. All the artwork was amazing, the small details on the buildings and the attention to detail made Victorian era London come to life. A good read, indeed!

Hi All! Monday, Aug 14 2006 

I say again, Hi all! This blog is generally just going to be my ramblings about every day stuff that happens, the anime and manga that I’m into at the moment (with reviews and synopses) and anything else cool that I find!

So anyway, my name is Catherine (duh – as the web-address gives it away!) I’m 27 and I live with my husband in Sydney Australia! I’m a rather avid (or rabid, depending on my mood) manga and anime fan, going for all different genre’s at the moment. I’m also a wannabe writer myself – so far I’ve only managed to delve into the realms of fanfics, but hey! The reviews have all been good so far!

I’ll do a more in depth intro later on – Just thought I’d get started with something quick and easy!

See ya round everybody!

Catherine G 🙂
