Ore ga akuma de, aitsu ga yome de review

Ore ga akuma de, aitsu ga yome de (I'm the devil, she's my wife) by Aruma rumi tells a story of a little orphan girl name Uika who just wishes to have a family. Anzamnia (Anzam for short) is a fallen angel who has yet made a contract with any humans unlike the other demons. Focusing only on getting famous people the guard keeper throws him into Japan were he falls when Uika prays that one day someone will take her away from the orphanage. Anzam forms a contract with her and asked what her wish is she beg him to marry her. Now married Anzam has to deal with the pain of being married.

Ore ga akuma de, aitsu ga yome de is a very cute and sweet little story of a marriage with one party was happy to be marriage while the other party isn't. Uika isn't my favorite character but she's so cute I just wanna hug her. She at times reminds me of myself and how I am in my relationship. She's very innocent and cares for others more than herself. Her feelings may get hurt when she finds out Anzam likes girls with big chest but she doesn't make a big deal about it. Anzam is my favorite character he wants to be the best but always ends up failing. He also reminds me of my boyfriend some times. He may treat Uika bad at times but he really does love and cares for her. Bring back the girls with big chest thing yes Uika was depress and didn't do much like cook for them but Anzam ended up cheering her up. He may use the whole I'll divorce you card but he would never actually do it. He's a very kind and sweet guy who wants people to appreciate him and accept him the way he is. The secondary characters add more to the story and make the main characters more interesting. I love all the character except the guard keeper she's a big meanie but these characters make me love this manga more than I could have.

Ore ga akuma de, aitsu ga yome de (I'm the devil, she's my wife) gets a 9.5 out of 10. I love this story but I felt it ended too soon. The ending was cute but I wish there was more. Hopefully the author makes a extra chapter on how their lives ended up when she got older. It would bring a even sweeter ending to this cute story. If your a very big shojo fan you have to read this manga it's a must read.

Perfect Girl Evolution

Perfect girl evolution by Tomoko Hayakawa tells a story about a girl name Sunako who tells her crush, her feelings for him but gets rejected and is called ugly. From that day on Sunako gave up on beauty. Her aunt feeling worried for her has four beautiful boys (Kyohei, Takenaga, Yukinojo aka Yuki, Ranmaru) live with Sunako in her mansion. If the four boys transforms Sunako into a perfect lady they will then get free rent. Focus on getting free rent they will do anything to transform Sunako even if she doesn't want to be change. They now start a long and hard journey trying to transform a girl who won't change even if life depended on it.

I loved this manga since it started it has made me laugh and cheered me up when I was feeling down. One word describes Sunako and that word is badass! She is my favorite character and by far one of the only female characters I could stand and like. Sunako is the type of person I want to be. She's strong and straight forward and could kick some ass. She's obsessed with darkness, horror movies, blood, and anything dark. I love how she calls beautiful things "creatures of light" and gets nosebleeds when ever she sees one. Kyohei is hard headed, very popular and cool. He could fight and only cares to get free rent or the lowest amount required. Even if he says that's the only thing he cares for you could see he does care for Sunako. Takenaga is the smartest out of the group. He's caring, shy, and the only one who doesn't run away much from Sunako's morbid habits. Takenaga came from a wealthy family of flower masters. He was sent to the mansion to become a little more "normal" because of the pressure of becoming the heir he started to ignored everyone. Yuki  is gently and is the most afraid of Sunako when they first met. He's cute, very shy and the one who has to dress up as a girl whenever they need it. When it comes down to my favorite of the guys Yuki is my second favorite. I could see him as a little kid who gets easily scared of things that look scary. I always end up saying "aww" whenever he does something I find cute. Last but not least Ranmaru, Ranmaru is my least favorite but it isn't because he's a playboy. Ranmaur's personality is like those guys who think their so beautiful and whenever a "ugly" girl is around they break out or try to get away from them as soon as possible. He came from a wealthy family and as Takenaga he's parents sent him there to become more "normal".  

All the characters bring something to the story unlike other mangas where you could take away a character and nothing will change. In this manga you have the character who doesn't give a crap even if that's not true, the playboy, the cute one, the smart one, and the one who doesn't want to change. All their personalities are balance and not one character is more out shine than the others. Perfect girl evolution gets a 10 out of 10. I like all  the characters even if their personalities aren't the greatest. They still in some way make me like them. The art work isn't the best but the story is what sales this manga not the art. The art could be overlooked by the story being told. Anyone could read this and get a kick out of it.

Heart no kuni no Alice

Heart no kuni no Alice (Alice in country of hearts) by Quinrose tells the story of Alice first time in wonderland. Lorina (sister) wakes up Alice from her nap and Alice tells her she had a strange dream about rules for a game. Alice sees her sister as very elegant and every man would fall in love with women like her. Feeling uneasy with the though. Alice ask Lorina what's she's reading and Lorina tells Her she's reading a fairy tale about a girl who follows a white rabbit down into wonderland. Alice asked about the ending and didn't seem to like it all that much. Stating she wouldn't like the book very much. Lorina says let's play a game and Alice starts to get drowsy. Lorina goes and gets cards while Alice starts to fall asleep, she then sees a white rabbit with clothes. Instead of following the rabbit she closes her eyes. The rabbit knowing she was supposed to follow him turns into a human and takes her to wonderland. Once they landed Alice asked where she was and the white rabbit later know as Peter White tells her she's in wonderland. Alice wondered how he knew her name and states that he's in love with her. Alice wanting to go home but was told she couldn't and now she has to drink the potion of hearts against her will. She tried to move but couldn't and tells him that no one will ever like him. Peter then says the game would be boring if it was easy. He then kisses her and passes the potion of hearts, she could then move and is told she has to participate in the game. Let the game begin. 

 Heart no kuni no Alice is a manga that was well made. It's based on games of the same name and even if I haven't played them but I've seen videos of it. It looks very similar to them. Threw out the story you don't know who she will end up with and if she would ever remember memories of Peter before she was taken to wonderland. All the characters were well develop, they all had traits that people would and wouldn't like. I like many of the characters and haven't come across a character I didn't like. The art fit how the story was being told and the way they acted as well. Heart no kuni no Alice gets a 7 out of 10. I love the characters but getting towards the ending it doesn't answer many of the question that went through the story. I felt it needed more but since I haven't read the other series, the answers might be told there.

This is the start of a series on a different take on Alice. It's a cute story that Alice fan should read and people who are new with manga and anime. This is a great start. I will read the other series and will give my thoughts but until then this is undeadwolfgirlhinata signing off.
