Manga Monday (cough): 100% Perfect Girl

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

I missed the second Manga Monday. Shame on me! I had a job interview during the time I usually spend blogging. I won't say where it was but it starts with a 'D' and ends with a 'land,' and, yes, it went well.

Summary  Taken From Netcomics
Jay Jin is the headstrong teenage rebel, determined to prove she's serious about making art. J. Max is the tall debonair foreigner, in Korea on business, with more--much more--to his background than he lets on. On the surface, it would seem as though Jay and J. have nothing in common... until a chance encounter in a hotel lobby sparks a mysterious attraction. Will true love prove strong enough to overcome the language barrier, not to mention the thousands of miles separating two attractive people? Then there are the interventions of friends and family who think they know best... as well as a disastrous encounter with spicy chicken kebab!

This one took me awhile to finish. Eleven volumes is pretty long! That said, it is a fabulous manga (technically manwha). Many romance mangas tend to either drag out the development of the relationship and consider the beginning of the romantic relationship to be the end of the manga (And their romantic relationship finally begins, tra la la, The End), which I hate because that's really not the end for anyone. Others get the main couple together towards the beginning, and then the story focuses on things outside of the relationship (like in Akkan Baby, where the story was way too focused on the principal). This is one of those few mangas that has a nice balance of story. And it's pretty. The angst can get a bit over the top, but I think it's more reasonable than most storylines.

Thanks for taking the time to do this and to share =D I just bought my nook and would love to read manga on it... if I happen to find time to grab some scans and covert them would you like me to share them with you? Have you found any places online that have manga that other people have converted into pdf's?

Absolutely! I would love to see more people converting manga.

In fact, I'm finally about to put up the third Manga Monday right now. Yaaay!

How do you download the manga? About how long does it take to format for the nook? I have a manga that's a good 170 chapters long and ongoing that I'd like on my nook.

Plum said...

Well, to download this manga you click the pink link that says "download". To download other manga, there are lots of sites you can download from; just search on Google. They won't be Nook-ready though.

Converting 170 chapters for your Nook would take a pretty long time. If you shared it, it might be worth it though! You would have to follow these instructions to convert the manga.
