Some of my friends have put together a small compilation of love stories under Black Ink’s “Shortcuts”! I’ve been looking for it ever since I heard about it and I was finally able to buy a copy the other day! ヘ(￣ω￣ヘ)
Jeff suggested I should take a photo of their book with mine, and I was more than happy to oblige! But our book is only a xerox-type! ヾ(*д*)ﾉ゛ Uhuhuhu~
The three love stories are all one shots, so you don’t need to worry and fret over when the next installment would come out (so they say, but I do want to see more from them! щ(ಥДಥщ)) I would suggest to pick it up yourself instead of reading my review, but if you’re curious, here’s a short description~ And I’ll do my best not to give anything away! （⌒▽⌒ゞ
- Some Sweat, Some Love by Nald and Jeff is about a chubby girl who wants to slim down to get the boy of her dreams. Will she succeed, or will her love of good food conquer all?
- A Decade of Waiting by Herbs and Enjelia tells about a young boy who wishes to become the best so that he would be good enough to be the boyfriend of the girl of his dreams. But after working so hard for the past decade, will she even notice his efforts?
- The Tree of Happy Leaves by Ron and Jason (huh? Jason not Jayron?!) is the story of a girl who likes a boy who has been ignoring her forever. One day, a golden leaf fall on her head which reminded her about the Tree of Happy Leaves. Could a little, dried up leaf, really bring happiness to a girl’s longing heart?
Honestly, I don’t like shoujo very much.
This coming from a girl who’s writing and drawing a shoujo manga herself! o(>< )o But after I’ve read all three shorts, it kinda made me feel like I wanted to fall in love some day too~ ♥（ﾉ´∀`）
Then again, I think I should be focusing more on drawing new pages for Crystal Shadows and preparing for the next Komikon! (,,#ﾟДﾟ)
In any case, please pick up this book! (≧▼≦；) It’s only P69.75, so you really get your money’s worth! I mean, a good fluffy story is so hard to find these days, and with this book, you get three! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) ♫･*:.｡. .｡.:*･ It’s happiness in a book!
