King of Thorns

The King of Thorns is a well written manga series. It is a bit violent but the concept it intriguing. A quick summary of the story line is a deadly disease called The Medusa Virus slowly turns the infected to stone. The Medusa Virus sweeps across the globe and a select few of the infected get chosen to go into cryostasis until a cure is found. Unfortunately, a few people get woken up early to a world hardly recognizable as Earth. A group of 7 people escape from the room they were awakened from but found that there no way out. They struggle to survive in this new and horrible world. It doesn't end there but I don't want to give everything away. :) Happy reading!!!!!!

Anime/Manga News!

Sword Art Online Season 2- The Gun Gale Online is finally released (well a few weeks back)! Highly recommend everyone to watch this because it is awesome story plot (a bit slow in the beginning), amazing effects like SAO I, and great characters (Kirito and Sinon)!
Kuroko No Basuke has finally reached the end of the game between Rakuzan and Seirin High. The tide of the game was constantly changing but the finally winner is ........a Secret until you read it of course (not planning to spoil anything). The third season of the manga is also decided to be release around March 2015.
Love live School Idol Project has released its manga version and while it differs from the anime, the plot is still amazing. Ao Haru Ride anime also released recently and seeing the love triangle/love problems in school are much more great!
Fairy Tail discussion exploded due to the new scene in the newest chapter! The kiss scene is finally in. And the fighting between Tartarus still ongoing! Also check out Fairy Tail Zero to discover the story between founders of Fairy Tail and potentially secret behind Lumen Histoire or to find out who was so skillful to cause death of the invincible Mavis (or i hope he will tell us)!

Frankenstein

Frankenstein 
Frankenstein is one of most classic tragedy that was inspired by the story of Prometheus. Victor Frankenstein, a genius scientist that was so passionate toward knowledge, created a monster from the flesh of the dead that neither belong to the Underworld or the living world. Not only this fact continued to haunt him and drowned him in regret, the psychological torture of watching the death of his loved ones eventually destroyed his hope and driven him toward revenge. Only death could grant him peace.
Monster who was abandoned by his creator and human society continued to seek for sense of love, belonging and companionship. After obtaining more knowledge, he understood his own deformity and bears hatred but also hope for his creator to accept him.
This story was through multi-narratives (a story within a story) and described the destructive power of knowledge.
I recommend this to everyone! It gives a new perspective of the society, family, love and also whether knowledge is good or bad. I still couldn't answer this question : Who is the monstrous character in the story?
