Webtoon Manhwa: Papi Nyang

Hello again everyone!
         I’m sure you’re getting ready to return to school in this month or the next … couf couf … because I start classes again on monday 6  TTwTT
The final torture is coming next … ♫ 5th IB semester!!!! ♫ :D
TT-TT I have to survive if I want my diploma.
         Today I want to present you a really cute manhwa which is a webtoon named Papi Nyang. I fell in love with the story even before start reading it because of the cute characters, more Chev which is in the cover. x3
Here is it: 

Name in Korean: 빠삐냥
Drawn and story created by Guava
Released in 2008
Originally published online on Blog Naver (NAVER 블로그) in guava85 account.
Genres:  Slice of Life, Drama, and some also consider it Shoujo, though I do not.         
Gorba Chev, a fiesty Turkish Angora cat, dreams of escaping from his so called "prison". However, when he finally succeeds, he finds there is a hidden darkness in the outer world...

Gorba Chev is a feisty white kitten owned by a kind and caring young woman -- yet he often dreams of escaping from the "prison" that is his owner's apartment.
When he eventually succeeds, Chev joyfully prepares to embrace his new life of freedom and adventure; but soon finds out that reality is a sadistic mistress and a very cruel teacher...

This manhwa by today August 4, 2012 is already completed with 28 chapters.

         This cute manga, as you can infer is about the live of a cute little cat (I love cats) named Chev which wants to scape home as he thinks is a kind of prison, but he ends up discovering that world outside isn’t as nice as he thought before, and even he ends up sick wanting to return home. Don’t think I’m just spoiling you the story, because that is just the beginning of the story, as there happen many other things.
Chev gets to know many other cats, most of them street cats, which conform the story, apart from some human characters as the owner.
         The drawings are really good and cute, also the author posted some information about the cats with pictures. This manhwa is based on real life events, but Guava explains that at least 70% of the story was made up by her. :P

         I really recommend you to read this manhwa, as the manga before (Hourou Musuko) but this story because is heart-moving (at least for me), I’m sure you will love it too if you love animals (or at least like cats). :3

         Well this was my last post before returning to classes, I’m sure it’ll be a long time before I make another post, but I wish to do many more as I have my stupid computer again with me and now it works properly as a Mac is supposed to do (I hate iMac’s >:C ).

Have a nice weekend everyone, 
enjoy the time you have left of your summer vacations and rest well,
if you enter classes as me I wish you good luck and success.
Bye~ bye~
GBU all!

Manga: Hourou Musuko, The Transient Son


Hello everyone!

      Sorry for not posting for sooooo long, this is a really fast post as I decided to started it today and ended it today when usually for a recommendation about any comic I take at least two days, and approximately 6 to 9 hours at all. 

Let me introduce you this cute manga which was really of my liking: *o*

Original Name: 放浪息子
Alternative Names (English): The Transient Son, The Wandering Son
Author: Shimura Takako
Released in 2002
Magazine: Comic Beam
Publishing Company: Enter Brain
Genres: Drama, Gender Bender, Slice of Life, Romance, School Life, Seinen


Fifth grader Nitori Shuuichi is a rather feminine boy who looks good in girl's clothes, enjoys things like baking, and tends to have mostly female friends. He and his sixth grade sister Maho transfer to a new school, where Shuuichi ends up sitting next to Takatsuki Yoshino, a tomboy that he gets along well with. Soon, they both discover each other's secrets, and find that they are not so different; in fact, they are very much the same.

Neither Shuuichi nor Takatsuki can tell anybody their secret....

By today July 26, 2012 this manga have 111 chapters, 14 volumes released, and is still ongoing.

            I started to read this manga just a few hours ago instead of finishing cleaning my room, I was a bit bored and I didn’t wanted to work on my IB projects, I thought that reading manga would be interesting, but I wanted a story different from what I usually read. I like gender bender, but before I just have read stories of girls that acted like boys, but I thought that to read stories about boys like girls would be interesting. So I entered a manga page and wrote  ‘gender bender’ on the Search bar. A really large list showed up from female and male gender bender.
            I started to read the titles, and see the pictures of each comic, then read the descriptions; some of them had just been released, so then I started to also look at the status of the comics. 
            I read two One-Shot mangas, I read the Daughter of Devil manga (from The Evil Vocaloid Music saga) which hasn’t been completed, and saw some mangas that I’ve already read (I’m planning to make recommendation of those in the future).
I saved some mangas in my list ‘To read’ but this one caught my attention, so I say, ‘why not read it now’ .

          Once I started to read it I couldn’t stop, I really loved the story. Because at first they introduce you children, but those children grow up, and you can see how they become teenagers. Also it is really interesting because the Kids as they reach puberty, they are in searching of what they are and what they want to be in the future, they commit some stupid mistakes that I’m sure most of us did at that age: have they fights, have romances, and everything that can happen on that part from the road of life.

          In the description of the manga just Nitori-kun and Takatsu-chan are mentioned, the girly boy and the tomboy. But there are other characters almost as important as them, whom without them, the story would be also meaningless. Those other adults and children help Nitori and Takatsu to keep up going on what they wanted to be and do, some of those other characters are or were the same as them. Also the families from all the characters have influence in the story, because in case of Takatsu, her mother wanted her to be feminine; while in case of Nitori, his family didn’t matter if he was boy or wanted to be a girl. The same happens with the families of the other characters. Some of those families, I think I would like to have a family like that, that would cheer for you and let you be what you want (I like to wear boys clothing and act like a boy sometimes, but other times I want to wear skirts, dresses, and be feminine. So I wanted to cut my hair like a boy and buy a wig).

          The drawing are good, thought is not the kind of drawings I like the most. I told you the story is really good, I haven’t finished it, but I loved what I’ve read. Sadly I can’t say anymore about the manga because I don’t have more information, as I just started since a few hours ago. But I REALLY, REALLY recommend you to read the story, it is really good!!!!

Well, I’m really excited by now, I think that after posting this I would be able to calm down. I wish you had liked it.
どうもありがとうございました! ^_^
みんな! 良い一日を! 
I wish you to have a really nice upcoming weekend,
to be healthy,
to be happy,
to be successful.
GBU a lot!
Good Luck! (if you believe in luck)

PS: here I leave you some pictures from Daughter of the Devil manga, if you has already watched the musical videos, and know the story of The Evil Vocaloid saga, read the manga. If you haven’t seen any of them yet, then read the manga and watch the videos. The manga makes you understand some things that are not clear or not even mentioned in the videos.

The Evil Saga, Main Part, videos in Chronological Order

Complementary to Evil Saga
Daughter of the Vengeance

Hola todas las personitas!

Hola a todos,

Este es mi primer post en español,  XD (ya lo han de saber, CLARAMENTE)
Espero que estén todos bien, que ojalá ustedes si hayan descansado en sus “vacaciones” de semana santa, no los hayan desmadrugado, ni desvelado, ni hayan tenido que quedarse haciendo tareas -_- .

Aunque sé que simplemente no tiene nada que ver con lo que se trata el blog: comics asiáticos.
Y ahorita mismo debería estar haciendo tarea que no hice porque me quedé dormida dos horas :S ,
Lo que hace desvelarse el día anterior haciendo tareas….

Anyway! (Como sea!)

También la vez pasada quería hacer una entrada en español sobre otras páginas que igual tratan comics asiáticos, pero más que recomendaciones, son sponsors y releasers de los comics, es decir son grupos que compran (y lo escanean o consiguen el raw) el comic, para posteriormente editar, traducir, publicar, y permitir que lleguen a nuestras tan “preciadas” computadoras personales o de escritorio frente a nosotros para que podamos leer tan bellas o geniales historias creadas por personas en otra parte del mundo (en la cual la mayoría de nosotros no tenemos los recursos para ir, lo que es ser pobre TT_TT).

América Latina estilo Hetalia
Este blog me gustaría también hacerlo algo personal, pues creo ya había explicado, que este blog fue originalmente creado con el simple propósito escolar de cumplir con un proyecto semestral de mi clase de  High Level IB English. Para nosotros en México (algunas regiones) sólo le decimos las clase de Inglés Avanzado BI, punto, no la llamamos Superior, a como mate o física en BI: Mate Nivel Medio, Mate Nivel Superior;  a muchos compañeros les dio miedo saber que llevábamos inglés en nivel superior igual que lengua y literatura de lengua hispana, xD . Para aquellas criaturas que no sepan bien que es BI o IB, estas son Bachillerato Internacional o International Baccalaureate en inglés; soy actualmente una IB student, pero pienso regresar a Bachillerato Bicultural, y estoy haciendo mi EE(Extended Essay) o Monografía en Física :D , aunque llevo Ambientales ¬_¬ .
El proyecto consistió en crear un blog de tema libre y crear publicaciones semanales si era posible, y una vez al mes debíamos hacer una investigación de ese tema más profunda, de un cierto rango de palabras, con citas MLA, y todo ese mugrerío. Ejemplo de estos son los posts de CLAMP y el de la SHOUNEN JUMP. Aunque ya igual, al final, el último parcial el profe ya ni checaba las entradas, le valieron e igual nos ponía 100, xD , que triste. (nota extra: en Facebook existe una página de IB memes, están geniales, más los de historia ns, mate ns, TOK, y física ns.)
esto me pasó con H.P.

Más ahora, como ya hace meses que terminó el semestre pasado, y este semestre ya está casi en su término, pues empezé a publicar otras cosas tales como Cómo llegué a conocer los Comics Asiáticos (en inglés). Repito para mí, debería estar haciendo tarea, no he terminado ESCUCHA ni OP, la tarea #5 de mate, el proyecto de Info, y me faltan 400 palabras de Mono -_- .  Oh, y al fin empecé a leer Harry Potter, nunca había visto una película completa y nunca había leído un solo libro; los empecé hace un mes, leo un libro por semana, pero creo que estos últimos me tomarán dos, porque eso me ha llevado la Orden del Fénix, y voy a comenzar el capítulo 22.
Regulus, Severus, Lupin, James, Sirius, Peter, Lily, Lucius.
Aunque viéndolo de otro lado, leo los libros alternos en inglés y español, así que practico mi lectura y comprensión en ambos idiomas. Y si bien, obvio me puse a buscar cómo eran los personajes en la película (no he visto las película aún), y pues encontré fotos de los personajes en estilo anime, obvio ahí va el fanatismo Otaku, :B , y nunca puede faltar alguna chica yaoísta o chico yurísta que sube una foto estilo yaoi-hentai o yuri-hentai de los personajes.

Ahora creo que debería irme a dormir, pero igual aquí anda mi hermano escuchando musica felizmente, xD . Sé que vos no os incumben mis propios problemas y pensamientos, aunque de igual manera los pongo :P .
Pero bueno, aún sigo sin laptop (se volvió a ‘fregar’, el disco duro, y la tarjeta del internet inalámbrico).

Muchas gracias a aquellos que leen este blog medio abandonado, medio sin-sentido, x3 .
Que tengan una bonita semana, espero que les vaya muy bien, terminen sus deberes a tiempo, puedan tener tiempo de esparcimiento, pues Dios les bendiga (si creen en Dios, sino ignoren el comentario), y yo me despido. :3 nyaaa~!

PD/PS : les dejo unas bonitas fotos photoshopeadas de One Piece y Star Wars. (Now I leave you here some photoshoped pictures of One Piece and Star Wars.)

Manhua: 1/2 Prince

Hello everyone!
In this post I'm going to present you another Asian comic, but today as different of the other latest post this one is about a Taiwanese Comic, they are also called manhuas, and this one is named ½ Prince.
First, as cultural reference, I've noticed that usually Asians call half and write as "½" people who change from girl to boy or from boy to girl(as other example, Ranma ½).  And well, this is a very fun and interesting story (as most comics I've recommended you, xD). Believe me, once you start reading it you won't stop reading it until you reach the last released chapter and you'll be laughing like crazy most of the first chapters. Well, here is it:

cover of the
1st book of the novel
       ½ Prince
Original Name: ½ 王子
Pronunciation: Èr fēnzhī yī Wáng zǐ
Story created by Yu Wo and drawn by Choi Hong Chong
Released in 2004
Magazine: Dragon Youth Comics(龍少年 Lóng Shàonián)
Publishing Company: Tong Li Publishing
Genres: Gender Bender, Comedy, Adventure, School Life, Shoujo, Shounen, Action, Romance, Sci-Fi, and Harem.

     From MangaFox:  It is the year 2100 A.D. and humans have invented a virtual reality game called "Second Life". Feng Lan, due to a bet with her brother, vows to beat him in the game without using her feminine charm to attract others to help her. Thus, she becomes the first transgendered character in "Second Life" - in other words, she is the only person who has a gender in-game opposite from hers in real life. As her popularity rises due to her looks and bloodthirsty skills, can she keep her identity a secret from her loved ones and friends?

From The Little Corner:

It is the year 2100 A.D., and humans have developed a virtual reality game with a realism level of 99%. Feng Lan, due to a bet with her twin brother, vows to succeed in playing the game without using her "female benefits." Due to this, she becomes the first and only female to play as a male character in "Second Life." As her infamy rises as a bloodthirsty warrior, can she keep her identity a secret from her real life acquaintances whom she has beaten up?
   From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: …The protagonist is a 19 year-old female student named Feng Lan, who is challenged into playing the nearly arrived game Second Life by her twin brother. As the first person to log into the game, Feng Lan is given a wish which she uses to give herself the privileged of creating a male avatar whom she names as Prince. In game, she strives to prove to her brother that she can be a capable player.

By today March 14, 2012 the manhua is still ongoing. The manhua is based on a Taiwanese novel with the same name.

The comic, apart from having a good story, also have good drawings (there’s bishies :P) and it is not much different from the original story, though the drawings of the manhua might not be as good as the drawings of the novel covers.
There might be many characters, and maybe you would want to do a character map. The chapters are not commonly released, so if you read it and reach the end, you’ll have to wait at least 2 and half months to read the next chapter (that’s somehow tiring and frustrating).
The novel have already finished, so if you want to read it, you can read it complete, there are not original Englis translations, the novel is just in Chinese, but you can find some fan translations.

Thanks for read; I wish you had liked it.
GBU, good-bye, have a nice week!

PS: Sorry for not posting for many weeks, but on those past weeks I had a lot of homework and projects also my computer hard-drive stop functioning, again. So I need vacations or classes break to go again to the US.
And as I had a lot of things to do, I barely could read the updates from my favorite Asian Comics and I couldn’t read any new manga, except for Psyren from which I bought a Shounen Jump magazine for $90 MX and some classmate from Escucha lend me Pandora Hearts manga volumes from 1 to 7(I read them on the bus on the way from school to my house, xD).
