I'm sorry for the lack of post recently as I'm pretty tired up with the coming JLPT paper. It's this Sunday *yeeks* and I'm feeling very unprepared this time round. I'm only hoping for a pass. =P
I will get the following series up once I'm done with my paper.
1. Black Bird
2. Himitsu no Ai Chan
4. Kimi no Tonari de Seishunchuu
I randomly picked up this tankubon 僕の部屋へおいでよ, (Boku no Heya he Oideyo) serialised in cookies the other day at the bookstore and after reading volume 1, i find it intriguing.
Our heroine, 十勝京 is an very innocent high school girl whose good with housework and nothing else. She does not have any plans for her future and she's comfortable with it. She chooses to stay alone while her parents are away for business trip as she can't bear to be apart with her friend, which are actually 3 stray cats which she has been feeding since she found time in a field near her school.
One day, while she was doing her regular feed, she found a guy fainted in the field and she carried him home! (somehow she manged to carry him into a cab or something and it didn't occurred to her that she should send him to the hospital instead!) 鳴沢士朗, the hero is a undergraduate of a nearby university and he's majoring in vet. He's apparently very poor and fainted due to hunger.
Anyway, like it's title, the story developed in a way that 鳴沢士朗 ended up staying in with 十勝京 and the 3 stray kittens. With an additional character, 鈴木綺更, a research student/vet who works in the same vet clinic where 鳴沢士朗 is doing his internship with. Of course, she already unintentionally stirred up some drama for the series.
I like how the mangaka leaves traces of 鳴沢士朗 and 十勝京 past as flashbacks which makes my heart craves for more knowledge about their past and how it made them who they are now. The art is a-ok and the story is pretty slow paced and nothing too dramatic if you are familiar with this mangaka's work. Might consider doing a share if time permits. ^ ^
