Interests
I usually don't post these sorts of Journals but I've been reading one of the funniest mangas in a while.
Here's the brief synopsis from mangahere.co:

Jitsu wa Watashi wa Manga

Summary: Kuromine is a guy who does not lie, hence his nick name "a bag full of holes". But everyone has secrets, and even Kuromine has one. Meet the very lovely, elegant, and mysterious Shiragami whom Kuromine has new-found affections for... But what is this? Why does she have humongous wings when no one's looking and super-long canines? something is very different about this girl...
...

My thoughts: This is not your typical harem manga along the lnes of Nisekoi or Rosario + Vampire. It has a great deal of humor and also a lot of heart. It will make you laugh out loud or tear up inside. It's that good. Even though it's updated somewhat aporadically, it's still one of the best manga out there, in my opinion if you like that sort of thing that combines elements of comedy, slice-of-life, fantasy, and romance.

If you've read it, what are your overall thoughts?


Here's the basic outline from TV Tropes: (Contains some spoilers so read at your own risk!)


The love comedy with non-human heroines that are just a little dumb!


Asahi Kuromine is your average high-schooler... besides having a really bad poker face. He currently has a crush on a fellow classmate named Youko Shiragami, the resident stoic Ice Queen. When he tries to confess to her, he ends up discovering that she is a vampire... and that she will have to leave school if she's ever found out. He subsequently swears to keep this secret to allow her to continue with her school life.However, though he may be the "Man Who Cannot Lie", he may have bitten off more than he can chew, as Shiragami herself turns out to be quite the cheerful ditz.

He also has to contend with his malicious childhood friend-reporter Akemi Mikan who never lets any secret stay hidden, and Shiragami herself may not be the only supernatural being roaming around on the school grounds.Jitsu wa Watashi wa is a romantic comedy manga by Masuda Eiji, featuring a cast of lovable weirdos, supernatural or otherwise. It has a fun take on an overused premise and has good use of hilarious facial expressions.

An animated adaptation of the series has been announced!


The manga has also been licensed by Seven Seas under the title "My Monster Secret", and will come out in the United States in January 2016.

Like I said, I am not sure at this time and I've
also had some bad luck with co-authoring a fic.
I started on one in March of 2013 that hasn't been updated in over a year, so you'll have to forgive my apprehension about tackling another co-authored fanfic. I'm not saying it won't happen
again, but I do need to take some time off from writing anyhthing, since my most-recently ended fan-fic just came to its conclusion and was over 330,000 words which took me well over a year to write.

But if I do, I have certain rules that I follow, like NO original characters. (Unless they are a relative or decendant of one of the main characters, like Tsukune or Moka and are not the main character or take over another character's "role" in the story itself)
That's one unwritten rule in the Rosario Vampire fanfiction fandom that doesn't go over well with the readers.
