It’s a kind of magic
This has led me to acknowledge an extraordinary ability :
I can make people want to read shoujo.
Regular people, who don’t even read manga at all sometimes.
Mind you, I say want to read, I don’t know if they follow up to that. But who cares ? Still an awesome superpower in my opinion.
I hadn’t done it in a while, but, urged by the Great Master of Propaganda (— err, you know who you are and I wouldn’t want to get kicked out), I commited a new crime and treated everyone in sight with my views on Sawako (French title of Kimi ni todoke). I’m currently watching the anime and discovered we’ve already got 5 volumes translated here (where have I been, seriously, I’m ashamed of myself). It’s in French so I’m not publishing it here, so I’ll just link it for the lucky bilinguals who come by. It’s here, along with the other posts I’ve written for this forum.
As for Kimi ni todoke – the anime, let’s just say I enjoy it and I might write a review when the anime’s over, but I’m not inspired enough to write regular posts about this show.
