Do you have songs that make you feel tingly??

ok so this is the most random post ever… but do you have those songs that just have something magical about them?

I definitely do..

because I love to share I will share some of them with you :

KIMDRACULA (deftones)

For Me This is Heaven (jimmy eat world)

The Shining (Badly Drawn Boy) *don’t let the longish intro fool you keep listening*

First day of my life (Bright Eyes)

Everlong (Foo Fighters)

…. i guess i am a sucker for slow songs…

Paradise Kiss #4

Second to last! no wait i want more!! *sad*

oh well i better make it count!!!

In the 4th book we see that the fashion show is coming up very soon! Everybody is helping to put the finishing touches together so they can have just the right look. Some of the things they had been working on get confiscated by a teacher and that creates a few problems but all in all most things are coming along pretty well.

Of course we see more of what is happening in the love life of george and yukari! this time around yukari is jealous of a old friend of george’s a friend who just happened to have one the very fashion show they are getting ready for in the past …

So in this book you finally get to see all there work come to fruition!! The time of the fashion show is FINALLY here!! and the dress is gorgeous… (in my opinion yukari’s hair is a bit scary…) but with the fashion show over and a new possible love rival what will happen with george and yukai??

Paradise Kiss #3


You have made it 1/2 way thru this wonderful piece of art that is Paradise Kiss!~

Has anyone gone out and read this yet? C’mon you know you want too!~

Anyhow for those of you who haven’t read book 3 here you go:

Oh yeah so first off a warning there is a little nudity in this book!!

In this the 3rd installment of our journey we start by taking a peek into Yukari’s first ever modeling job! Yukari is on her own now and trying to make it but before too long she decides that she will be moving in with George. Though she is quick to get angry at George she also finds herself falling more and more in love with him!~

Living with George seems great but it of course does not solve all her problems. She is thinking about quiting school to become a model but first she needs a guardians approval! She realizes that it will be hard for her to get her mother to ok something like this but she goes to her mother to ask anyway. Her mother oks it but there is one thing she must do before she can model full time….

Sorry if this review seems a bit wordy compared to usual I am having fun typing haha 🙂

Paradise Kiss #2

So with book 2 we see Yukari’s world expand even more then in the first book! She now has a boyfriend and is going to model for a student fashion show! She never before this even gave modeling a thought and now she is thinking about leaveing home to make it on her own!! Oh how her world has changed.

In this book we meet Miwako’s sister Mikako who is also the main character of Ai Yazawa’s previous work

Gokinjo Monogatari (neighborhood stories).

She has grown up and now owns Happy Berry and Yukari goes to see her to see if she can get a job working for her at her shop. It seems though that the clerk position is taken.. would she like to become a model instead??

Paradise Kiss #1

So I had a lot of fun reading this book back when I first got it in 2001. Since then I have read it another half a dozen times and still really enjoy the art work and story! It was the first book of manga I ever bought because the cover drew me in more than anything else in the Barnes and Nobel teen section.

So anyhow on with the review: This manga really pulls you in right off the bat by making Yukari the main character. Alot of people know what it is like to be her a student who feels plain and is just trying to get by…

but then out of nowhere you are thrust into the world of paradise kiss. This world contains beauty and excitement and people who are so different from those of the “regular world”

In the midst of all these crazy people one seems more crazy …and wonderful than all the others: George

Before she even realizes it she is in love with george and things in Yukari’s life start to spiral out of her control…
