Ohay, Nina here. So, have you read the Shojo manga series B.O.D.Y. by Ao Mimori? 

Plot (from Wikipedia):
Everyone thinks 16-year-old Ryoko has weird taste in guys because she can't stop drooling over Ryu, the strong silent type who sits next to her in class. When she discovers he works for a host club—where women actually pay men to date them—will she finally wise up? Only one thing's for sure in B.O.D.Y.--you can't put a price on love!

B.O.D.Y. is pretty cliche, but yknow, manga out there like Kaichou wa Maid-sama are cliche as well, but they doesn't mean it's amazing & fun to read amirite? The main girl Ryoko is.... your typical, good hearted, clumsy, cries-too-easily Shojo girl. The thing I like about her though is even though she cries like hell, she doesn't give up & is willing to help friends all the time, & worries about others (sometimes too much & she forgets about herself). Plus I love how she styles her hair ^^ The main guy Ryu is a good guy, though I must admit he's not one of my favorites & he kinda irritates me sometimes, but I do like his sexy shoulder bag haha. Honestly, this is the sorta series that wouldn't be my first choice, but it's pretty good. It's something I'd read when I'm bored, like right now. 

Unfortunately, B.O.D.Y. only has 28 chapters out online, the rest you'll have to buy. I know I'm going to try finding the volumes at some stores later <:

Beast Master

Hihi, Nina here~ This entry is about a short Shojo manga series called Beast Master, by Kyousuke Motomi. It's only 6 chapters long + a special, so yeah 7 chapters long, so when you have some free time or something why not read it? 

Plot (taken from the Wikipedia Article): 
Yuiko Kubozuka is a high school student who loves animals, though animals unfortunately hate her and flee from her whenever possible. When Leo Aoi, a strange student with a terrifying expression transfers to Yuiko's class, she is surprised to learn that he is actually innocent and sweet-natured and animals are easily drawn to him. However, when attacked, Leo unconsciously becomes as violent as a bloodthirsty animal.
Because Yuiko is the first to see beyond his frightening expression, Leo quickly becomes strongly attached to Yuiko, who is his first friend. They fall in love with one another, but circumstances regarding Leo's family situation threaten to separate them.

I think it sucks how it's only 7 chapters, it's really sweet & cute, but, hey, not all Shojo series need to be dragged on for chapters & chapters to be amazing. I really like Yuiko; she's one of the few main characters in a Shojo I actually like; she's really sweet & cute but she's kinda stupid, she's not a pissy Mary-Sue or anything. & Leo... well, he's *o*; That's all I can say. Leoyousexybeastmmm. 


So I'm heading off to bed now, I got state-wide testing tomorrow /groan
