Hey peps,
It's time for something new. Today's a MANGA REVIEW!!! WHOOP WHOOP!

Today's manga is a three volume boys love manga published by BLU. Kotori is a superficial person, easily enthralled by looks hence the title of the series. Menkui mean superficial in Japanese. However, what happens when a superficial person falls in love with a handsome his best friend Akaiwa. Can their relationship really work with both having insecurities. I've only read all three volumes, and this manga is very cute. The story isn't really developed or otherwise it would've been a longer series, but it's good for a light entertaining read.

Looney Express Reviews gives Menkui! by Suzuki Tanaka-Sensei a 3/5.

Romantic Princess (Taiwanese Drama)

Hello Folks,
It's that time again! And NO, it's not my period. HARDY HARRHAR!

I've recently watched the 13 episode long Taiwanese drama, Romantic Princess. It's spins the tale of the long lost grand daughter of the richest man in Asia. Raised in the middle class family, Xiao Mai is shocked and upset to find a limo in front of her house and being forced to live in a mansion with four very handsome guys(kyaa!). It gets even worst, as the sole hier to her grandfather corporation, she must marry his chosen successor Jin, who happens to be a jerk. What'll happen next you ask? What the drama, DUH!

Here's the summary from (where I get my drama fix):
Adopted by middle classed parents, Mai has always had a dream to be an heiress. Who knew that one day this dream would come true. Mai's biological grandfather is the head of a prestigous aristocratic family and after many years of searching, he finally finds his long lost granddaughter. As she starts her life as an heiress, everyday is filled with excitement, however, everything seems a bit different from what she had imagined them to be.

Even though, it was a great drama, the ending wasn't anything like what I expected. It was sort of boring compared to the rest of the drama, which was highly exciting!

Looney Express hereby gives Romantic Princess a 3.5/5.
