Tadoku Contemplations

So, for Tadoku I started up picking up in the middle of Vampire Knight where I had left off last time. I’d say that the second half of the series gets a lot more serious, and imagine my surprise when I angrily didn’t understand everything in the drama unfolding near the end. It went from just basic everyday (and sometimes specialized vampire like vocabulary) to all sorts of shenanigans .

I cheated

with dictionaries. I cheated because I just couldn’t glean enough to appease my desire to know what’s happening. I didn’t learn any new vocab from it all I don’t think, but now I know mostly what’s happened. This makes me feel like School Days anime that went from standard everyday listening to crazy O.o. Not that there was anything psychotic going down in VK, but it was surely taking a different turn that I had originally thought it would take when I started.

Everyone has different tastes, and mine has lately shifted to really girly tastes for some reason. After finishing up VK however, I must say I encountered something I haven’t before in reading Japanese books, which is that I’m not ready to move on. I wanted to reread it, again. haha, I just might, While this happens to me in English a lot,  With Japanese, I usually get exhausted with a story going so slow to finish it, and I suppose that I picked up speed this time around. Maybe I really should go nuts with the silly girly books. Maybe that’s just what I’m digging and need to run with it.

Any recommendations of frilly girly things? I’ve got Skip Beat set up next,
