From 5 to 9 (Miki Aihara)

Song of the Day – “My Way” by Paul Anka while I’m writing this.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Am reading the latest series from Miki Aihara -5-ji kara 9-ji made! I actually bought the manga without knowing what it is, at this low period where i don’t know what shoujo should i be reading next.

She was always writing all these harem themes that after a while it got predictable (e.g. So Bad! Hot Gimmick, Honey Hunt ), and yeah, blame me for still reading them even though I kind of know how the ending will be. Teacher’s Pet was juicy in a way but that is another story.

‘From 5 to 9’ is a refreshing change, at least I don’t see any harem romance coming up in a way yet.  It is more josei, written to target young working girls who are faced with the dilemma of getting married at the ‘xxx’ date. 3 girls form the main leads in this series. I can totally see this being a drama series since it’s quite ‘real’.

My favourite couple in this series is actually Momoe and Arthur. Maybe I can relate to this particular hobby of hers. You must read to find out what exactly it is.  Anyway, I like the above cover, set in the Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter party backdrop, and just peeve that we don’t get to see such covers in the tankobon. Credits to the chinese team who did this.
