    May 2013 Shoujo/Josei Featured Character



    Name: Kyouko Mogami
    Gender: Female

    Age: 16-17
    Height: 163 cm
    Zodiacal Sign: Sagittarius
    Occupation: Actress
    Blood Type: B
    Series: Skip Beat

    Kyouko Mogami was an innocent girl whose goal in life was to please Sho Fuwa, her childhood friend and love interest. When he asks her to go with her to Tokyo so that he can pursue a career as a singer, she follows him without asking. However, one day, she overhears him complaining about her to his manager, that she is boring and plain and he only keeps her for housekeeping duties, then he proceeds to flirt with his manager. Enraged, she vows revenge on Sho. As she is carried away by security, Sho mocks her by saying that if she wants revenge, she should be a bigger star than he is.

    After that, she changes her appearance, and tries to get into show business so she can be a star. She faces many challenges in her goal to get revenge, and along the way, meets Tsuruga Ren, a famous actor, who finds out her motive and as a result, dislikes her. However, as Kyouko begins to love acting and no longer sees it as a way to get revenge, he softens to her and becomes her respected mentor. Ren and Kyouko actually have a past together, which is known by Ren but not by Kyouko. Slowly, both of them starts to have feelings for each other, to the jealousy of Sho.

    Kyouko is generally a very joyful character, though when she loses her temper, can be very scary with dark aura emanating out her body and her little demons are out, terrorizing her object of anger. She also makes voodoo dolls that she uses to curse the people she dislikes. Despite her scary temper, she loves pretty things, especially cosmetics, and she believes in fairy tales, resulting in her looking childish and innocent at times. She possesses a great talent in acting, going so far as to lose herself in her characters. She has a fear to love, incited by Sho's abandonment, and ever since has a trouble in opening up her heart.

When he shows effort in interacting normally, he becomes popular, especially among girls due to his good looks.

    July 2013 Shoujo/Josei Featured Character



    Name: Yukina Himuro
    Gender: Female
    Occupation: Student, Novelist
    Series: Watashi ni xx Shinasai

    Yukina Himuro is a girl who is feared by her classmates because of her sharp eyes and cold skin temperature, earning her the nickname yuki-onna. Unknown by many except for her cousin, Akira, she is actually a famous cellphone novelist named Yupina whose novels are really popular. However, one day she overhears two girls saying that her novels begins to be boring because of the lack of romance. Worried about her novels, she does not know what to do until she finds a student handbook, accidentally dropped by the popular student council president, Shigure. She reads the handbook and finds out his secret, then using it, she blackmails him to do love act with her for her novels.

    As she keeps giving missions to Shigure (which he hates) to do different love acts, she gets the data she needs for her novels. However, slowly the missions are no longer mere acts, as Shigure starts to fall in love with her and Yukina has feelings towards Shigure though she cannot name it love yet. Things get more complicated as Shigure's childhood friend, Mami, shows up with jealousy in her eyes, and Akira confesses her feelings for Yukina.

    Yukina at a first glance seems to be a quiet girl, but she actually has an active mind and a straightforward manner. Despite being feared by others, she doesn't mind it, but she has the great fear of being looked in the eyes without her glasses to protect her due to a childhood trauma. Yukina is really devoted towards her novels, willing to do anything to make her novels better and more popular. As shown by her novels' content, Yukina doesn't know much about love, thus her need to do the missions with Shigure.

    Re: Shoujo & Josei Monthly Featured Character - Kyouko Mogami, Haru Yoshida & Yukina Himuro

    Kyouko, the stupid girl. XD No, not stupid. She's just... sincere, I think. She gives her all in everything, starting from liking and supporting Shou to acting. That results in both happiness and sadness. To be honest I think I'm looking forward to her character development more than what we currently see, including to change her childish and stupid part a bit into someone more mature. XD

    Haru is actually similar to Kyouko in their sincerity, now that I think about it. Often misunderstood, which resulted in cases being rejected. I really should start reading the manga. >_>

    And Yukina sounds like an interesting character. *thinking to check the manga but is scared about the plot *

    As much as he's cute and lovable and all of those, I remember I was pretty mad at him for being so.. slow... especially dealing with the stupid Hikari, lol. They are a cute but can be annoying too as a couple, haha.

    Re: Shoujo & Josei Monthly Featured Character - Kei Takishima

    Well, he has his reasons for being slow. And his reasons are actually proved. I still can't get it when Hikari first finds out about Kei liking her, and gets shown all the evidences, in the end she thinks it's just a joke (if I remember correctly, I don't quite remember what she thinks). My heart actually breaks for Kei.
    If he didn't go slow, I can't imagine how many times his heart must be broken. He might not survive the ordeal, even. Hikari is just too prideful and dense.

    Re: Shoujo & Josei Monthly Featured Character - Kei Takishima

    Haha. You know, I don't really blame him. I don't even consider him slow. He's pretty blatant about his feelings, it's just that the girl was so dense. I actually liked him because he wore his heart on his sleeve, he wasn't wishy-washy about his feelings, he was decisive, he was firm and he knew what he wanted. Everybody practically knew about his CRUSH. But maybe he was just feeling if Hikari herself was ready. In that, I think he was always a smart character. Always sensitive when it came to her.

    Zero is generally a calm and composed person, even though he can act cold and hostile, especially when dealing with Kaname. Despite his scary aura, he is a gentle and kind person who wants to protect humans. He has a nature to hide his true feelings behind his cold manner, so he is hard to understand or get close to. He is also a gifted and intelligent hunter who views vampires as monsters and therefore, he loathes himself and struggles with his desire for blood.
