Kimi Koi Limit is a Yuri Manga. That being said, it is also a shorter manga. The premise of this manga is basically a love triangle. Some one loves some one else, but they don’t love them back. That person settles for another and still has feelings for the other one. Sounds like a Jerry Springer episode XD. It was a very cute manga though. The artwork was great and the characters were amazing as well. It is a bit risque at times but nothing too bad.
Kimi Koi Limit Plot and Characters
Like I said, Kimi Koi Limit is a love triangle. Sono is a high school student in love with her classmate, Sato. She finally confesses her feelings, but Sato does not feel the same way. She wants to remain friends, but they lose contact after they graduate. A few months later, Sono is in a relationship with Hiroko. She has already slipped a few times and mentioned Sato and her feelings towards her. Hiroko basically took Sono in after she found her wandering the streets about to die. She had not intended to fall in love, but Hiroko could not resist Sono. All the while, Sono is freeloading at her place. Hiroko just happens to go to the same college as Sato. Sono runs into her eventually. At that time, they reconnect their old friendship. Sato starts to feel a certain way towards Sono as well. Soon they all find out about one another and Hiroko has to let go of Sono.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes romance mangas. It s a cute manga and you get to know the characters so well. I was really wanting Hiroko to win in the end, but she was just not enough for Sono. I also wish the manga had gone on a little longer. It seemed so short, but such a huge story to get out.
I started reading Loveless (thinking it was complete) after I saw the anime. I really wanted to know what was going to happen because (SPOILER) Seimei ended up showing his face at the end of the anime. Plus who is Loveless Fighter anyways? Still have yet to have that question answered sadly. The manga is still ongoing and slowly creeping along.
Ritsuka’s brother, Seimei, was murdered a few years ago by the Seven Moons. Ritsuka is wanting to take revenge for what happened, but really has no means to do so. His mother says that he has changed in the past two years since his brother died. He is transferred to a new school and makes only one friend, Yuiko. Ritsuka is just a quiet 6th grader. On his first day, Soubi comes to him and says he knew his brother. Ritsuka quickly takes an interest in him.
Soubi has come to Ritsuka through the orders of Seimei. He becomes Ritsuka’s fighter even though they have different names. Seimei was Beloved and therefore made Soubi Beloved as well. Ritsuka carries the name of Loveless. Through many battles, though, Soubi and Ritsuka learn to use each others powers better.
When they both learn that Seimei is alive, it devastates them. Soubi is feeling betrayed while Ritsuka is finding out what Seimei’s true nature is. Seimei only treated Ritsuake with love and care, while he was cruel to everyone else and tortured Soubi. At this point Seimei’s true fighter is with him. By the end of the manga, Seimei takes Soubi from Ritsuka. The fighter with the name of Loveless has still not shown up yet, neither has the name on Ritsuka.
Ritsuka is the main character of Loveless, thus the manga is named after him. He is a quiet and abused child. He has trouble making friends. He is the sacrifice of the fighter Loveless, but uses the fighter Beloved. Soubi is the fighter Beloved. He is a college student mastering in art. He cares about no one but Ritsuka really.
Seimei is a cruel person intending to take down Seven Moons. He uses his true fighter Nisei. Nisei is much like Seimei in that they are both cruel and care for no one but themselves. Nisei really seeks Seimei’s approval, but never receives any.
The Seven Moons is actually a group of people. The group works out a school that trains fighters and sacrifices and matched them up. There have been experiments and creations of other fighters and sacrifices though.
Loveless Fighter/Sacrifice Relationships
Every sacrifice controls a fighter and every fighter protects their sacrifice. The name of such sacrifice predicts what their future will be like and how their personality will turn out. So far the names consist of Sleepless, Beloved, Loveless, Bloodless, Breathless, Moonless, Fearless, and two sets of Zero. Each set has certain advantages or powers due to their name and nature. For example, both Zero’s feel no pain. This is a handy ability, but can be deadly. Moonless fights better when there is no moon showing, making them somewhat invincible.
There are fighters though that are not connected to anyone particular. They are called blank slates and can stand in when a sacrifice has lost their fighter. Soubi was a blank slate to begin with until Seimei wrote Beloved on him. Yuri is was also a blank slate until Hideo (Bloodless) wrote his name on her face.
Loveless is a great manga to read. Even though it is a Yaoi, it really isn’t a “strong” Yaoi. Reading Loveless can help you figure out how you feel towards someone. The manga seems to be about trusting and relationships between one another. You may find something out about yourself. So give Loveless a shot!
Miyuki is your usual teenage girl, only she gets sucked into other worlds. Another short (really short) manga by Clamp. Miyuki is taken to six different worlds in this manga. Created to less loose Mokona’s female character designs. This is an all female manga. No males are anywhere in here. Throughout each world, Miyuki always seems to get caught in sexual situations. Yes, this is a Yuri manga.
In the first world, Miyuki is taken to Wonderland. In the first scene she is running late somewhere. She comes across woman dressed as a bunny. Everywhere she turns is another character a twins, a cat, and a ‘mistress’.
The second world is in the Looking Glass. Miyuki is brushing her hair in the mirror when she pulls herself into that world. She meets the Red Queen and the chess pieces.
TV Land is the third world. Here Miyuki is taken into the TV by a pair of legs. She is taken captive and eventually is rescued by an angel.
In Part-Time Job Land, Miyuki is forced to fight several different women at once. She gets far by avoiding them as they take each other out. Eventually Miyuki and another girl are left in the ring. Miyuki does not get much further.
After learning Mah-Jongg, Miyuki’s skills are tested. She plays a game of strip mah-jongg with four other girls.
In Video Game Land, Miyuki must play a hero to get out of the game. She dawns armour and tries to defeat the enemies only to fail.
X Land is the work of X/1999. Miyuki is in the theater watching Clamp’s X. She is mistaken to be Kamui and forced to choose the destiny if the earth. Only the females of X are present.
In each section she is basically stripped of her clothes by other women and dressed in something more erotic. Miyuki is just a poor girl trying to live her teenage life. Each section also ends in a loop.
Miyuki is really the only character in the manga. The rest of the women involved are just random characters with the majority having no names. The story does not allow time for character development, not even with Miyuki. In each section you meet certain characters that never cross over to the next.
Miyuki-chan in Wonderland is just a manga to read if you are a fan of Clamp. I know I picked it up mostly for the X Land section. It is a decent read if you have nothing else to do. If not, then just look at the art, that alone is worth reading about Miyuki’s life.
