Dame na Watashi ni Koishite Kudasai Chapter 1 Review

Dame na Watashi ni Koishite Kudasai Chapter 1 Review

Whether you’re new to manga or looking for something different to read, I’m going to tell you to read Dame na Watashi ni Koishite Kudasai. Yeah. I’m telling you aka ordering you to read this. Why? Let me do a review for you and you tell me why you should read it.

Dame na Watashi ni Koishite Kudasai is a josei, romance manga that is different from any josei manga I’ve ever read. The manga story is about a woman, Michiko Shibata (or Shibata Michiko, if that floats your boat more) who’s about to turn 30 years old, and she’s never been in a real, serious relationship before. Michiko is a simpleton, too, and I personally think she’s a stupid teenage girl trapped inside an older woman’s body.

But I really love the humor that the mangaka weaves into the story. It’s just so hilarious, and that’s why this manga has charmed me. The comedy is topnotch; however, there’s a dark shadow that lies behind the funny. The thing is, Michiko hasn’t figured out her life yet, and she’s being put down by many people in her life, such as her parents who want her to get married and be a responsible adult. It’s quite pitiful, really, the life Michiko lives. I think this is a wonderful josei that many people, men and women, can relate to, so it’s definitely worth the read. But continue reading my review cos I want to show you all the funnies that this manga presents. I’m sure you’ll love it, too 😀 I mean, just look at the first page of Chapter 1 xD

My favorite Private Prince cover pages for each chapter!

Private Prince by Enouji Maki is one of my favorite romance and josei genre manga. It’s about a prince from Estolia, Will, who comes to Japan to study at a university. Miyako, a plain Japanese girl who loves history and studies a ton, is the other main character in Private Prince, and she wants to write a thesis about Will’s great-grandmother, Princess Ritsuko. Princess Ritsuko was the first Japanese woman to marry into Will’s royal family, so it’s a huge deal, and Miyako wants to write about Ritsuko. Of course, when Will comes to her university, she pounces on the chance to talk to the prince about Princess Ritsuko. Well… when Miyako gets her chance, it gets totally screwed up because she finds out that Will is a perverted prince! He loves “melons” too a.k.a. big boobs, which Miyako happens to have haha Then, this starts their crazy relationship, and they are hilarious! I read this manga over and over from time to time; I love the art and story. It’s a rags-to-riches type story, and Miyako ends up walking in Princess Ritsuko’s shoes.
