「Kyou Koi wo Hajimemasu」

In this story, the protagonist, Tsubaki Hibino is becoming more
and more beautiful through experiencing first love.

Hi (●^o^●)
Today, I'll introduce you 「Kyou Koi wo Hajimemasu」 written by Kanan Minami.
This title means 「Today, I'll start our love」. This is comic for girls.
This comic is popular in Japan. I rent from my friend and read it ^^
This is really nice story♪ Then, I'll show you the summary of this comic.

Despite Tsubaki Hibino's talent in styling other people's hair, she isn't comfortable with doing the same for herself. Her presure is styling her younger sister`s hair and make her cute. She believes such a cute and stylish hair style doesn`t suit her and always provincial hair style.
She is a nerdy student and she studied really hard to enter to good high school. However, she failed in most of the entrance exam for high school. Therefore, she had to enter to the high school she took an exam as a safety measure. She really ashamed of herself and decided to study really hard and go to good university. On her first day of high school, she is immediately looked down upon her delinquent-like classmates for her old-fashioned taste. In an entrance ceremony, the person who got the highest grade in the entrance exam makes a speech. She was looking forward to see that person because that person must be her rival. When she heard that person`s name, she felt really excited because his name was Kyota Tsubaki , who shares the same name as her. However, when she saw him, she was really disappointed becaue he has long hair which looks slovenly hair style and his speech was the one lack of seriousness and sounds ridiculous. She felt really frustrated becaue she lost toward such a playful guy. After the entrance ceremony, she went back to her class room. In coincidence, her seat was next to his seat. She tried to stay away of him. However, when Kyouta saw her, he began making fun of her with her old-fashioned taste. When she was tased by the top student, Kyouta Tsubaki, she defiantly cut his hair. Of course, he got angry and asked her to do something for an apology for it. Then, surprisingly, what Tsubaki did was cutting his hair. Kyouta is a playboy who is famous among girls . Interested in her actions, Kyouta decided to make her his next target . Kyota, who also has control of the class makes Tsubaki need him during the class activities, although Tsubaki attempts to resist his advances. Gradually, the two begins to fall in love with each other until Tsubaki discovers that Kyouta can't commit himself into a relationship due to his mother and a nurse he trusted. However, after understanding Tsubaki's trust in him, Kyouta begins to heal emotionally as he opens his heart up to Tsubaki. But with both of them having their first experience in love, troubles start to weigh and test their relationship.
(I took some of this summary from wikipedia.ō,_Koi_wo_Hajimemasu )
This story is really cool. At first, Kyouta had trauma toward woman because of his mother and nurse he trused. Actually, that's why he became playboy. He was afraid of commiting himself into relationship and betrayded by someone. However, Tsubaki's sincere feeling towards him made his hurt open. I think Kyouta could fall in real love finally. They really love each other. They are really nice couple ^^♡

I really recommend you to read this one.

「Akuma to Love Song」

Hi ^^
Today, I´ll introduce you 「Akuma to Love Song」 which is comic for girls written by Tomori Miyoshi.
Akuma means devil in Japanese. So, this title means 「Devil and Her Love song」.
I bought this comic when I went back to Japan during last vacation.
Then, I´ll show you the summary of this comic.

The portagonist of the story, Maria Kawai is very beautiful girl who is really good at singing. She was expelled from her previous school, St. Katria Girl's School , and soon, transfers to Touzsuka High School, a public school with low standards. Her sharp tongue and straightforward personality often leads everyone else to hate her. She says waht she wants, albeit too bluntly and harsh, even when she intends to help others. Her arrogant fecade and point blank statements are the reasons she is hated by most people and it seems she too is indifferent towards them. When she was expelled from her previous school, she was told "You defile people" from her best friend, Anna. She realized that she hurted even her only friend,Anna, from what she said. She was shocked and prolongs it. When she entered into Touzuka High School, she was hated by all of the classmates except two boys Shin Meguro and Yuusuke Kanda. With a devil's aula like hers and arrogant facade to pair it up with, it's just too hard to be understand. Therefore, Maria needs to deal with bullying, adjusting, fitting in and romance. Bit and bit, she began to be understood by others and integrate herself into a class.

I think Maria lives on the straight and narrow. She is really cool.
She is always hated by everyone, but she always tries to change herself.
She always sings a song to encourage herself.
Her hope is to be able to be liked by others and also by herself.
Her strength of character is ideal for me.

I really recommend you to read 「Akuma to Love Song」.

「Kamikaze Kaitou Jeannu」

Hi ^ ^
Today, I´ll introduce you ´Kamikaze Kaitou Jeannu´ written by Arina Tanemura.
This is a fantasy comic for girls. I read it when I was in elementary school.
It is really famous and popular comic. I think most of the Japanese girls have read this.
It was also adapted as a anime series. Of course, I watched it too ^^
Then, I´ll show you the summary of this comic.

16-year-old high-school gymnast Maron Kusakabe is visited by the angel Finn Fish, who gives her a task. God's power is scattered across the Earth, and if He does not gather enough by the turn of the millenium, He will die. To block Him, the Devil has sent out agents to gather His power, which is the beauty in human hearts, in the form of chess pieces. With Fin's assistance, Maron transforms into the reincarnation of Jeanne D´Ark in order to hunt Demons hidden within works of art. Since that time, she began defeat damons in the night. When Maron defeats a Demon, the artwork disappears, and to the outside world it is as if she has stolen it, and she becomes known as a `Kaitou ("phantom-thief") Jeanne`. Therefore, she began chased by police. However, she always defeat damon elegantly. POlice has never succed in catch her. Maron's best friend is Miyako, the daughter of a police detective in charge of Jeanne's case. Therefore, she always feels sorry for her.
As the series progresses, Maron and Miyako fall in love with new classmate Chiaki, who is also secretly a demon hunter, Kaitō Sinbad. He is the guy who moved to Maron's apartment. His room is next to her room. He has really good looks and became popular among girls soon. Chiaki at first "fakes" falling in love to get closer to Maron, knowing Maron is Jeanne. Maron is also attracted by Chiaki, but she doesn't know he is Kaito Sinbad.she is Later he falls in love truthfully after realizing that Maron's worth the effort, even if she does "hate" him. Maron, on the other hand, is confused and does not know what "love" means because her parents abandoned her when she was around ten years old because they were having problems getting along, so no one taught her. As a result, she does not know how to respond to Chiaki's advances. Eventually, she realizes that Chiaki is not a bad guy after all. She is deeply hurt, however, when she learns that Chiaki is her rival, Sinbad, and that he only went after her because he knew she was Jeanne.
(I got most of this summary from wikipedia since this story is too difficult for me to explain by myself... )

Maron is depicted as a lonely young woman who hides her feelings behind a warm smile.
She suffers a lot, because she has to hide the truth that she is `Kaito Janne´to her best friend Miyako. And also, after she knew Chiaki is `Kaito Sinbad´, she suffers because she couldn´t be sure how should she deal with him. Behind such a suffering, she grows a lot. I think she has a deep inner strength.

I really recommend you to read ` Kamiaze Kaitou Jeannu` .
