It does, somehow, doesn't it? Thanks for this, Susan.

Hi Susan, it's nice to see you around again! This piece alerts me to the fact that yes, some days are like this--the space in between...

The word twilight or the book? Lol!

My answer to your question on my blog:

I liked Fruits Basket at first. It's a cute series in the beginning and the storyline bases on the daily life of Tohru while she lives with the Sohmas. As it moves on, the story gets darker as the main character learns the secrets of each member (or most). The fun atmosphere starts to wear off slowly past ten volumes (I can not recall). Once you hit around the 17 volumes mark, it's all about the pain the Sohma has to live through due to their curse. Tohru tries to help them any way she can and gets pulled deeper into matters she should have never meddled with in the first place.

By maybe volume 10, I started to lose interest. I found that the plot have not progressed the way I liked it. It gets more "emo" and I started to dislike the latest style the artist's work. Near the end, everything seemed so "meh". Since there is so many volume in the series, I forgot almost everything that had happened because the story does pop out at you. (In my opinion)

In the beginning of the series, I give it a 4/5. For the latest ones that have came out, 3/5. But it is definitely a popular series among Naruto and Bleach.

Some of the other series I recommend and personally enjoy:

MeruPuri
Ouran High School Host Club
Vampire Doll
Gimmick!
Love*Com

You can browse my blog for more, I have quite a lot of manga reviews. =)

one usually thinks of "twilight" as an ending, and "twilight of our dreams" as an ending, but you have turned that on its head in a most intriguing and exciting way. Very full of hope and boyancy!

Diana Dang said...

I see, I see.

Lol, you don't like the book either? I think it's one of the worst written book I've come across. The more people talk about it, the more I like to make fun of it.

Diana,
If I had only made fun, I would have had fewer nicks and scratches. I'm quite critical of the book for a number of reasons. First, the writing is mediocre, two in any other scenario, Edward would be called a stalker and Bella's whiny and whole identity being tied to Edward makes me crazy.

The residual of our dreams keeps us coping with being bowed dawn til dusk. A wonderful piece, thank you.

twilight as a bow, that's an original metaphor!
