Koukou Debut

This is definitely one of my favorite mangas - and it's already completed! Light and hilarious, it never fails to crack me up! Both leading characters are well personified and the graphics isn't messy (although the lines below the eyes are kind of distracting). Others may find it dragging in the middle, but i don't really care! I had a lot of laughs every volume - every chapter of this manga!

Kawahara kazune's already doing the drafts for a sequel and I'm hoping it will be out sooner than later.

Il Mare

Another romantic film from korean actress Jun Ji-Hyun (My Sassy Girl, Windstruck) which tells a story of two people of different timelines who somehow got connected through a mailbox. The pace of the story is slow, making the movie light and mellow. The ending was a little confusing though.

A remake was done in 2006 by Warner Brothers with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves titled 'The Lake House'.
