June Anniversary Giveaway Week #2
The winner of Sebastian’s watch has been notified (congrats 123bunny!). Time to move on to the next giveaway for the month of June. Manga. Manga. Manga. It’s really hard to find exactly what I would love to gift to other people. One of the unfortunate things about anime, manga…heck even music and dramas is that a lot of it is expensive. Ah, this addiction to Asian entertainment really does lighten the wallet.
It has been really hard to find series that I want to share at reasonable prices from respectable sellers. In doing research for what I wanted to give away I learned that they have an Ouran High School Host Club special box set…they also have one for Bleach and Death Note. Crazy. Even crazier are the prices. Still cheaper than buying the entire sets one by one. On another sad note, I’ve essentially been forbidden to bring home more books due to the sheer number I already own, so I’ve been digitizing my manga collection where I can, but it is my dream to have a house with a library in it some day where I can put all the books I love. Who doesn’t want a library in their home?
Anywho, long story. What’s the point of this post again? Right. The next giveaway. This time the item up for grabs is the complete collection of Maid Sama! The complete anime collection that is. I really wanted to find a nice collection of the manga Kaichou wa Maid-sama but wasn’t able to, then I discovered they have the anime version and I figured, why not. There are tons of animes based on manga and even some manga based on animes…or movies…or trading card games.
The storyline revolves around a poor girl named Misakiu who happens to be study body president by day (that is the ever-feared demon president) and working in a maid cafe at night. She catches the eye of the wealthy and popular Usui who soon discovers her secret. Of course a high school student working in that situation is forbidden by her school and she must do her best to escape detection. I haven’t officially completed the manga yet, but I do love it.
To get your hands on this anime based on an awesome manga, respond in the comments below and tell me what your favorite anime based on a manga is or what your least favorite is. Anything based on a book is cast under close scrutiny, so I’m sure it’s easy to hate an anime based on a manga for the same reasons people tend to dislike movies based on books…if they’ve read the books that is.
