Manga's for Girls? 2005/12/16 14:15
I was wondering if any of you ladys (or guys if you know) could give some info on good Manga's for girls?

My Girlfriend is Japanese and I remeber her saying..hmm..something about a Manga with the lead character who's name was "Apple" I belive..she was a teacher and it was basicly a romance novel about this one girl in a kind of love triangle..but I could be wrong..I still can't remeber the name of that manga..but all her friends read it I guess so I would assume it's populer in Japan.

Anyways if any of you ladys would mind, could you tell me some of your favorite Mangas? Anything will do :-)

The only one I have found was "Kiss me, Kiss me" that seemed like it might be a nice one for her. But I'll take any suggestions on Manga's for a teenage girl ^_^

Thank you for your time.

Just one idea 2005/12/17 13:08
I like "Love Hina" myself wich is kind of a comedy but it does have a lot of perverted jokes so I guess that is not what you are looking for..but my sister reads a few I'll ask her.

Nodame Cantabile 2005/12/17 13:23
Nodame Cantabile by Ninomiya Tomoko is really funny and enjoyable. Recommendable for both those much interested in classical music AND those not so much.
(It's available in English as well)

Thank you very much about "Nodame Cantabile" ^_^ I just read the description that would be a really good one I think ^_^ My Girlfriend played the piano for 4 years so I think this kind of story would apeal to her ^_^ Any more suggestions would be great ^_^

P.S. I own some "Love Hina" and I don't think that is for her..

by baby rate this post as useful

Thats it!! ^_^ 2005/12/17 14:57
"Nana"..hmm..thats it ^_^ That's the one she says she likes a lot ^_^ I don't know why I said "Apple" (must be a diffrent one she mentioned once..) but Nana is it I just checked ^_^ Thank you that was driving me Crazy trying to remeber that haha ^_^

I was kind of debating to buy her that one since it would be in English not Japanese..wich she likes because she can practice by reading something she enjoys in a diffrent language. I still might get her other ones that are diffrent but at least I know its a winner ^_^

Oh there making a moive about it? Probably only in Japan for the moment I assume..but still something to keep in mind, and something I can talk with her about.

Thanks again for telling me it was "Nana" ^_^

Thank you every one, keep those ideas comeing ^_^


the movie by mika
nakashima and aoi.

Thank you very much ^_^ 2005/12/18 13:58
Thank you very much ladys for all your help ^_^ I'm not into manga's very much and the ones I do have are definitly for guys. So when it came to girl Manga's I didn't have a clue.

Well I went to the book store, looked over all the ones you had mentioned and I couldn't decide so..I just bought them all ha ha ha ^_^

"Nana" definitly looks like something she would be interested in. Same goes for "Nodame Cantabile". I did pick up "Honey and Clover" but that one is kind of iffy. There was another one there I saw a girl looking at called "Kiss me, Kiss me" wich I guess is about a girl who pretends to be a guy so she can get close to one that she likes in a opposite school. Her cousin (male) switchs with her so she can attend the school with this hot guy but he has to pretend to be a girl at her school. It seemed funny so I picked that one up too.

My girlfriend likes reading in English so I am sure she will be entertained by them.

Thank you once again,

Nana movie? 2005/12/28 19:45
Some of you ladys mentioned "Nana" wich I did give to my girlfriend and she enjoyed very much. But can you tell me more about the movie? Was it any good? I know the manga is extremly populer. But sometimes moives like that can flop.

If it's any good I can get the DVD from a Japanese web store, I want to buy it as a gift for out Anniversary ^_^

Thank you,

Shoujo/josei manga 2005/12/29 04:28
The NANA movie was pretty successful in Japan. For one, it started Nakashima Mika who is a famous Jpop star. Plus the movies lead songs were two of the years best selling singles.

As for the movie, it follows the movie pretty well. But I should warn you that the manga is still running in Japan and the manga only covers maybe 1/3 of the manga. So the movie comes off as a bit more light-hearted than the manga (it doesn`t get to the more dramatic parts). But I liked it. I thought the actors were well chosen and like I said it followed the manga well. A sequel is in the works.

Some other manga I like are:
Kimi wa Petto/Tramps Like Us
Hana Yori Dango/Boys Over Flowers
Kareshi Kanojo no Jijyo/ His and Her Circumstances
Zettai Kareshi!/Absolute Boyfriend!
Get You!
Paradise Kiss
Kare First Love
Love Monster

LOL I have more but I can`t think of them right now.

Thank you ^_^ 2005/12/29 18:36
Thank You for all the useful info you gave to me about the movie ^_^ It's kind of a bummer that the movie dosn't cover all of the Manga..But oh well ^_^ I know she will like it ^_^ She lives in a little town so she dosn't have a big movie theater nearbye so she didn't make it to the movie. So I think she will enjoy seeing the DVD a lot.

Oh and Thank You for all the diffrent manga's ^_^ I'm still looking for more to give to her on our Anniversary so thank you for the help ^_^

Mangas 2006/6/25 08:17
If your girlfriend is intrested in a great shojo (girl) manga with adventure, action and romance why not buy her some Yu Watase, she is the best manga-ka ever. She's the one who wrote the popular Fushigi Yughi: The Mysterious Play.

Red River 2006/7/4 14:32
Red River by Chie Shinohara is a very good manga. It's a shojo, which, by your description, sounds like what your girlfriend's into. I highly recommend it! ^.^
