Hello, there! Good morning, it’s Wednesday, Manga of the Week day! 😀
Today’s chosen one was Ayashi no Ceres*, from Yuu Watase sensei 😀
Aya and her twin brother Aki thought they were going to a celebration of their sixteenth birthday at their grandfather’s home, but the funeral-like atmosphere tips them off that something’s not right. Their “birthday present” turns out to be a mummified hand–the power of which forces an awakening within Aya, and painful wounds all over Aki’s body! Grandfather Mikage announces that Aki will be heir to the Mikage fortune, and Aya must die! But Aya has allies in the athletic cook and martial artist Yûhi, and the attractive, mysterious Tôya. But can even two handsome and resourceful guys save Aya when it’s her own power that’s out of control?
Why I think it’s a worth-reading manga: this was my first anime series that I watched in Japanese with subtitles, so it’s a very special series to me! I admit that I never finished reading the manga, but I watched the whole anime series and a friend told me that, in this particular case, the anime series was very faithful to the manga 😀 It’s a very dramatic manga, but Yuu Watase sensei’s beautiful art and sensitiveness with the plot make out day, haha! This a drama/shoujo one, I highly recommend it to you if you like any of those genres. Plus, it has Ceres, that is one of the most badass woman of all times, haha!
That’s it! Thanks for reading 😀 Did you know Ayashi no Ceres series??
*in English, this title seems to have been translated into Ceres, Celestial Legend, but that is too lame, sorry. Ayashi no Ceres is way better, haha!
