Some long, long time ago i have promised you post about Anime and since lately i have been doing few blog guests in a roll, i thought about taking a little time off from that project and spend some time on the other part of my blog. Every time someone asks what Anime do you watch or what Manga do you read, i have no freaking clue, because over time i watched it quite a lot , more actually were the Manga i read, but still……..so my brain just gets empty and i have no freaking clue, maybe i can manage to say 2 or 3 which are my favorites. *awkward*………lately i spend less time actually laughing at that unreal world of amusement because i have less free time but there were lots of moments in my life where i didn’t do anything then just watched Anime or read Manga whole day, i felt brainwashed to the point i actually started to dream as Manga chapters……..that was weird.
So, i have no clue how i did start to watch Anime, i think it was still in early years when i was little so we all started with the most common ones, Pokemon ( i can’t believe they are still on), Digimon ( never really went much further then maybe first season), Sailor Moon, few Dragon Balls, ect….but how did i end up watching it on my laptop? I don’t remember… probably i was bored but it’s kinda weird i have no clue how i started to get huge pile of Manga and Anime here…they must have brainwashed me into doing that.
Anyway, of course, i have no clue either how i discovered Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge aka Perfect girl evolution – i think i wanted to find Anime with goth characters but there aren’t actually a lot of them, or not cool ones, at least. And somehow ended up watching it..and that was it…………..i got hooked in first few minutes when main character showed up.
So, i’ll write more about Japanese Yamato Nadechiko Shichi Henge, Perfect girl evolution or Wallflower!
I have watched Anime before then i went in search for the Manga as well because there are only 25 episodes of Anime and it was hilarious as hell. So first you see the title as Perfect girl evolution- i wasn’t that persuaded but hell…let’s try it.. then it was opening scene with few guys just sitting and drinking tea, talking about some guest who should have arrived already and i was like………..hell, do i really want to watch this? Nothing is happening there…and then main character showed up, Sunako Nakahara, and she got my instant attention. She is probably my number one Anime and Manga characters of all times, mostly because we do have very similar personality and i just really like her, besides, that was the first time ever i was laughing so much on some scenes i actually couldn’t breath and my tears were just falling down.
She is quite not interested in fashion and being pretty, mostly because she was called an ugly girl by the guy she liked when she actually took care about her body so now she just gave up, her best friends are creepy anatomical dolls and skulls to which she actually gave names, she loves horrors, also she is very strong and doesn’t hesitate to beat up people. Most of the time people mistake her for a horror character of a ghost and they are scared of her but she is actually a very gentle and caring person.
Most of the time she is just presented as a small or chibi version , she has times when she reverts to her “normal human” self and that’s mostly when she is forced to help someone , or save someone ass. So her parents are somewhere traveling and she was forced to go live with her auntie, very elegant and beautiful women and she loves her a lot, just her auntie wants her to be a lady and she will do anything for it including as a landlord to 4 very handsome guys, who are now, for the sake of lower rent, forced to teach poor Sunako how to be a proper lady. The irony is, Sunako is a real lady and she knows how to behave, she simply doesn’t want to. When they actually met her, they were scared of her but eventually with time they all became a very good friends, even if each of them has issues on his own.
Also no matter how people see her and that’s mostly because she doesn’t want to wear makeup or beautiful clothes, she is actually extremely beautiful girl but over the time her persona became quite gloomy, obsessed with darkness and she hates “radiant creatures” as she calls beautiful people, so she actually thinks her life is a living hell since she has to live with 4 the most handsome guys there, especially Takano Kyohei, who was kidnapped many times because he is too hot, poor thing. And every time she gets too close to them, she gets a nosebleed so sometimes you can literally see her being all cloaked up and hiding, most of the situations are hilarious. Being the most radiant creature there, Takano is often the target of her saying she will kill him, but she never does, even through the many chapters of similar situations where is quite clearly they care for each other more then just being friends, they still aren’t together.
Takano Kyohei is one of the most hottest guys who was kidnaped a lot since he was still a kid so that eventually drove his mother crazy and they aren’t in a good relationship since he had to leave the house because she even hated him for being so handsome, mostly because girls were obsessed with him and they keep ringing the phone and door bell and that never stopped. His personality is quite similar to Sunako’s, he likes to fight and he often goes beating people up, but they did deserve that. However because of his good looks he can’t keep a job, he is also quite short tempered and has obessision with food and money, so he wants to turn Sunako into a lady so he won’t have to pay a rent, even if he shows a soft spot for her a lot and actually telling her she is fine as she is now. Also he quite loves the challenges especially when Sunako wants to kill him, he is amused by it and he simply loves to pick fights with her over single little thing.
Ranmaru Mori is a son from very rich family but also a huge playboy, his family eventually wants him to marry a pure noble lady Tamao, which soon becomes one of Sunako’s best friends. He refuses her love but with time gets more and more interested in her. He is the one responsible for bringing out lady in Sunako, considering make up, first he was very spoiled and stubborn but later accepts whole group as his new family.
Takenada Oda comes from a wealthy old family which is doing ikebana, he is very smart and don’t ask me how he is the one who ends up doing Sunako’s hair. He was quite shy and only interested in books but later became more friendlier and currently dating a girl, Noi, also a very good friend of Sunako.
Toyama Yuki, is the youngest and more childlike, often scared by Sunako’s hobbies and horror movies, helps with choosing clothes for Sunako’s transformation in a lady, and also currently dating a girl.
Tamao and Noi are 2 delicate girls that somehow became very attached to Sunako, even with her weird appearance and hobbies and often they spend some time together, also Sunako is a great cook so she always has something good prepared for them.
My favorite is of course Sunako, i think i can see lots of similar things in her personality and it’s quite funny to see her scaring people or fighting with Kyohei, which kinda together make everything interesting…other characters are ok too, but those 2 are the reason i follow this series.
As i have said already, Anime is way too funny, too bad there is no more episodes so i had to go and search for Manga version, thank god that one is still in the air, and has lots and lots of chapters to be laughing at. Draws are quite beautiful and characters quite easy just crawl into your skin so you want to read more and more. Manga itself has lots of chapters which include haunted houses, lots of chocolates, ghost possessions, even almost Sunako’s wedding for a some creepy prince, i won’t spoil it too much, but ……..now i just got really bad urge to read it again…….i’m a truly bad influence not just for other people, but for myself too. If you have free time, it’s certainly worth of checking out. I was quite obsessed with it so i ended up watching live drama as well, it wasn’t like the Anime but still it was funny so i ended up watching all of the episodes, even if it was on a language i don’t understand, thank god for subs. Needless to say, after too much exposure to it, i started to picking up few words now and then so now i can follow the conversation without actually watching it if i have to go hunt something to eat or drink, but that’s pretty much it, i can’t speak or write it.
So, that would be all for now, they are really worth checking out and it cheered me out when i was down and my personality is a lot like Sunako’s, so that is saying something.
ps. all images and pictures belong to the series and credits go to those people who made them, i only put them into collages.
