About the Manga

Author: Ohmi Tomu

Title: Midnight Secretary

Summary: Kaya has her dream job; she’s a secretary to a reputable tableware company! She gets promoted to become the private secretary of the legendary Director Touma. He difficult, arrogant, egotistical and not to mention a total slut! But she’s not going to let that get in the way of her work… but one night in the line of secretarial duty she discovers that her boss is actually a vampire.

Bishounen Type: Playboy/ Anti-Romantic/ Ansgty Bastard

Physical Attributes (25 out of 40):

Fashion Sense (7/10)

Face (5/10)

Body (7/10)

Strength (6/10) Has not shown has he has any kind of super-strength. Am assuming of course that vampires are by nature stronger than humans, otherwise it would have been (5/10)

Personality (26 out of 40):

Angst Factor (7/10)

Mysteriousness (7/10)

Loyalty (8/10)

Humor (4/10)

Good or Evil (7/10): Good

His Take on Love (6/10): He really can’t help his growing feelings towards the one he loves but he’s doing everything he can to fight it. He is perverted and because women are “meals” for him he sleeps with them to improve the taste of the blood.

Special Abilities/ Facts (Bonus Points): He’s a vampire! Automatic bonus points (5), however you can never go on daytime dates with him (-2). He’s a successful businessman (5), good in bed (4), has the cutest bishoujo in the manga-verse (4).

Conclusion: This is totally the kind of guy that makes fangirls “kyaaa”: he is tall, dark and broody… what more can we ask for? But there is no way (or at least is would take forever for) this misogynist would trust, let alone fall for a human… so fat chance of me making it to the position of girlfriend. And if I was able to prove myself and gain his trust I probably couldn’t handle his antics and constant cheating. He gets downgraded for having that hair on his face and for being an über-arrogant, slut who because of his pride is unable to make his beloved happy. But the rest of him is very pretty, and if he can make people feel ecstasy when he bites them, then where do I sign up to become food? 😛 So by having the classic qualities which move the hearts of any fangirls he is 80% Bishounen, beating Dark by 1 percent.

About the Manga

Author: Morinaga Ai

Title: Yamada Tarou Monogatari/ The Tale of Yamada Tarou

Summary: Yamada Tarou is perfect in every way imaginable, but he has one terrible flaw: he’s poor. He’s father is an artist who is away most of the time, his mother has no concept of money, and he has 6 siblings. The responsibility to provide for the family rest on his shoulders. Nevertheless, poverty is his best kept secret, and both girls and boys fight for his attention.

Bishounen Type: Perfect But Clueless/ Heartbreaker

Physical Attributes (22 out of 40):

Fashion Sense (5/5) Minus points for that housewife outfit he wears when he’s home.

Face (5/5)

Body (7/10)

Strength (5/10)

Personality (19 out of 40):

Angst Factor 3/10(he is very enthusiastic and positive)

Mysteriousness 2/10 (succeeded pretty well in hiding that he’s not rich and that all he cares about his food)

Loyalty (6/10) (he is generally considerate of others)

Humor (8/10)

Good or Evil (8/10): Good (but has no qualms about killing the pet dog for food in desperate times)

His Take on Love (2/10): Clueless. Not interested. He loves the one that makes the best food. (will kiss for a banana)

Special Abilities/ Facts (23 Bonus Points): Excellent domestic skills (5). Can hear a coin drop a mile away (2). Is good at providing for his family (5). Nothing gets him down (1). Model Student (5). Good constitution: will not get ill from eating bad food or drugs (5).

Conclusion: Overall all, this guy is at the top of the gene pool. In the fight for survival he wins, no question about it. However, he is not interested in romance! And even if he were, I’d be wasting my time trying to be his girlfriend ‘cause he’s probably a better cook than I am (he likes “tasty girls” as in they can make good food) . He also gets a little downgraded on his physical attributes since his face is drawn rather averagely. But I love the way the manga-ka draws his body, with clean decisive lines; he looks like strong person (we’re talking human strength here). He also isn’t the angsty kind of guy that we fangirls fall head over heels for, but he is considerate, cute and very funny and that always goes a long way. His enthusiasm wins hearts everywhere, that is how he managed to beat dark even though he’s only 74% Bishounen! I guess he gets status points for having so many bonus points… (^_~)

A Fangirl’s Summer Mishaps

This image would pretty much sum up my summer ^^

This image would pretty much sum up my summer ^^

I’ve been a very bad blogger! And like many of you all, I’m going to go ahead and blame it on something else. I will now account for my failure blog:

  1. IRC has not been working properly since I’ve been using my parents’ internet [but now it is fixed]. IRC is my main manga provider. As it turns out, it is really hard to write about manga when the key distributor is striking.
  2. My dear friend Zolomon [conveniently] took forever to finish photoshoping the banner. [But as you can see it is up now, and has been up for two weeks now… I am grasping for straws here (^_~)]
  3. It is summer, there are several things that complicate blogging for me:

  • · Travel- I like to ambush my friends and go to places that, according to my wallet, I really should not go to. The implications of these heathen practices are always limited access to the internet! …Even if said friends DO have wifi, I always end up not blogging because there are so many people to see, things to do, places to be at.
  • · Usually hot weather- Usually, when it is hot and clammy [i.e. the thermometer hits higher than 26.7 degrees Celsius] as the weather has been the past weeks, I just like to lazy around sleeping and watching my youth slip through my fingers.
  • · Manga depression- For a student summer usually implies limited to zero chances at a stable-ish income. It also means slashing the budget for acquisition of [hardware] manga completely. Usually consumption of scanslated manga goes up, this summer the Gods of Manga somehow frowned upon me… [link back to problems with IRC]

Nevertheless, my vacations end tomorrow! [Whoopidoo?… They were starting to get a bit on the boring side, I mean, I can only sleep for so long!] So on Tuesday I shall make a grand comeback by exposing my 99th Bishonen! Please wait for it!

PS.

I found this really cute Lucky Star quiz for those of you who have nothing better to do so check it out!
