I rushed out of the classroom to the outside lunchroom as quickly as I could. I did not need to talk to Jessica Taylor. She’d give up trying soon enough. Everyone did.

Kill The Lights

I climbed up the hill and leaned against the willow tree, placing my hands behind my head as I listened to the leaves brush against one another. The warming weather glided across my skin, and birds were actually outside today. It’d only be a few more months until school ended and summer came. Normally, I’d look forward to the prolonged freedom that came with summer, but this time I’d be too busy training to have any free time.  I peered down at the outside cafeteria. Students were everywhere, yet I didn’t see my new lab partner. Maybe I was a little harsh. I fiddled with my headphones and put them on, but kept the music off. She hadn’t associated my dad’s madness with me—but, then again, she had pried into my life, and I didn’t like that. And she wasn’t the nameless shade.  I thought about the night before. The girl was so innocent, so oblivious to everything, and she was afraid. I would have to be careful around her. I needed her to trust me, not to turn against me, and if she really was abandoned, she needed my help.  The idea of being raised outside the Dark community intrigued me. If I had been separated from the Dark, the prophecy would be different. I wouldn’t be Shoman. I would be Eric. Just Eric. And no one could tell me what I was expected to do.  “Shoman.” Camille’s voice dimmed my thoughts, and my eyes popped open. “Turn around.”  I took off my headphones and spun my torso toward the valley. A girl with short black hair waved as she trudged up the hill toward me. “Teresa?” I asked. “What are you doing here?” “That’s a nice way of saying hi,” she said, leaning against the willow

with her arms crossed. She laughed lightly, and her eyes darted across the valley, staring over the entire town. Willow Tree Mountain, even though it was a hill, was the tallest point in Hayworth.  “Nice view,” I said. “Do you remember watching the fireworks up here?” “The willow tree was smaller then,” she said, running her hand across the bark. “It was healthier, too.” “It’s almost been twelve years,” I said.  “I know.” She pushed off the tree and pointed at the nearest street. “We have to go.” “But—” Was I seriously arguing? “I still have school left.” She waved a piece of pink and yellow paper. “I already got you a pass.”  “I can’t argue that,” I said, grabbing my bag and taking the pass. “Let’s get out of here.” Read I shall seal the heavens


Crystal was easy to signal out. She was always chewing on her gum, and she smacked it as she tapped my partner’s shoulder. “That sucks, Jess,” she whispered, and Jessica’s hairspray crinkled as she turned her head. “Why?” Jessica Taylor—or Jess—had a higher voice than I expected. “He looks nice.” Robb laughed. “He’s not.” Crystal hummed in agreement. “He’s a freak.” Jessica gulped. “He doesn’t seem like one—” “That’s because you don’t know him,” Crystal said, explaining the truth. She and Robb had been my best friends since birth, except I hadn’t talked to them since freshman year—not since the accident.  “Now he only talks to Teresa Young,” Robb finished, and Jessica turned her face, looking around the room.  “Who’s Teresa?” she asked, and I felt her eyes on my back. I looked the other way. I didn’t want them thinking I was eavesdropping, but, then again, I was halfway across the room.  “Some family friend,” Robb said. “She’s always around him; it’s weird.” “Maybe they’re dating,” Jess said, and I cringed, fighting the urge to shake my head. Gross. Crystal laughed hysterically, covering her mouth to smother the sound. “They’re definitely not dating. I already looked into it for a possible rumor piece, and there’s no way.” “Then why would he only talk to her?” Jess asked, and Crystal inhaled, her breath whizzing past her lip piercing.  “She’s been stuck on him since his mother died,” she said.  Robb huffed. “Both of them lived with me for a while after, but we were just kids.” “What happened?” Jess asked, dropping her voice.  Crystal’s nails ran along the lab desk. “Have you heard of Hayworth Park?” Jessica didn’t respond, and Crystal sighed. “Of course not.”  Heavenly Jewel Change

I heard her shift in her chair, and I knew the group was staring at me again. “His mother committed suicide there, and his father bought the land afterward,” Crystal explained. “He shut the whole thing down; he won’t let anybody in.”  Jessica gasped, and I couldn’t help but turn around. Her blue eyes met mine, and she turned away, completely scarlet. “Why?” she asked, not specifying whether she was asking about my mother’s suicide or my father’s actions.  “Because he wants us to be miserable like him?” Crystal guessed, choosing which way the conversation would go. “Who knows? He’s crazy.” “But what does his father have to do with him?” Jess asked, and I gripped my legs beneath the table. No one had asked that before. Instead, they looped us together, and I didn’t stand a chance.  “I guess he doesn’t,” Crystal said, allowing her words to linger. “But Eric doesn’t have the best track record with sanity either.” Robb’s chair scraped against the tile floor as he pushed it against Jess’ desk. “When we were freshman, Eric was dating this girl—Hannah Blake—right?” he began, and my entire body froze. No one talked about it. Not even me.  “Well,” Robb continued. “She was in a car wreck with him and died. He walked away scot free.” “And,” Crystal added. “The accident happened under suspicious circumstances.” Jess held her breath and whispered, “What kind of suspicious circumstances?” “Hell if I know,” Crystal said, hitting the desk. “Suspicious is enough for me.” “It should be for you too, Jess,” Robb said, and Ms. Hinkel cleared her throat, glaring in their direction.  “Are you all done or should I wait?”  They apologized, and I zoned out as all the students rushed to their new lab assignments.

Martial God Asura

I didn’t need to move. I was already in my spot.  The chair next to me scraped back, and Jess sat down, tossing her bag onto the table. Her cheeks were red, and I could practically hear her nervous heart beating. “Hi,” she said, turning briefly toward me to smile. “I’m Jess.” She offered her hand for a handshake, and I pushed my chair against the wall. “I heard your name when Ms. Hinkel assigned you,” I said, opening the chemistry book left on my desk from the previous period. I was not interested in small talk.  “Right,” Jess said, letting her hand fall into her lap. She had small hands. “So, Eric—” “Call me Welborn.” Even though you stood up for me, I am not your friend.  She nodded, raising her brow. “If that’ll make things easier for you, Welborn, then fine.”  I fought a grin. At least she had attitude.  She adjusted her chair, and my eyes shot to the class clock. “So, Welborn—” Ring. Ring. Lunchtime. Right on time.


            “There aren’t any good guys out there!” “Is this what happiness is?” Shigeta, the never-satisfied twenty-four-year-old protagonist of Gakusen toshi asterisk, is one of the most original characters in translated manga, despite (or because of) the fact that her personality reads like an exaggeration of negative traits from women’s magazines and TV shows. Selfish and unfaithful, she flits from goal to goal and man to man, frequently jobless, obsessed with her age, her future, boyfriends, and marriage. When she does meet guys (which is often), they often suck in bed or have other hidden flaws … but she can’t bring herself to choose Takahashi, the seemingly perfect guy who honestly loves her. Of course, Gakusen toshi asterisk is a comedy, told with self-referential humor and manic melodrama. (At one point, a nude Shigeta turns to the camera and asks the readers for advice, then cheerfully ignores it.) The plot is meandering in the extreme (unwanted characters frequently go on long journeys for the convenience of the story), and the English rewrite is sometimes awkward, but the story is funny and the art is sexy, though it takes a few volumes to develop.




            One of the first sports manga published in America, Shen Yin Wang Zuo is a winner, with versatile artwork and a team of strong characters. Nat Torres (Narase Tooru in the original Japanese) is an insecure benchwarmer on his high school basketball team, until he discovers three-on-three “street hoops” and plays in a vacant lot with tough guys, cool chicks, and criminals. (In case you’re wondering, it’s set in Japan, not Harlem.) The art is sometimes crowded, but Nishiyama has the requisite skill to draw bodies in motion, as well as very cute, very distinctive stick-figure chibi caricatures. Our hero encounters countless friends and foes (including several strong female characters); the relatively restrained shônen manga training-and-fighting elements reach their entertaining peak when Torres consults a basketball-playing hairstylist to learn the “legendary invincible lay-up,” his secret weapon. The 29-volume Harlem Beat series was published in America as two separate series, Harlem Beat (volumes 1–9) and Rebound (volumes 12–29). Tokyopop skipped volumes 10 and 11 of Harlem Beat entirely, summarizing them in a one-page “epilogue” before starting Rebound with volume 12. In Rebound, the characters fly to Sapporo for a national basketball tournament, and the end of the series brings the core cast of characters back where they began—three-on-three street hoops—for an admittedly over-the-top story about an evil basketball cartel. Balancing character interaction with action, downtime with basketball, and lots of good-looking characters of both sexes, Nishiyama’s basketball manga are done with such enthusiasm and high spirits that the reader is carried along. A single nude scene is censored in the English edition of Harlem Beat; Rebound has a few brief scenes of partial nudity starting in volume 9.

The battle scenes in Tales of demons and gods are especially well done and are a joy to read. And the storyline of Feng Shen Ji, however, It takes chapters to actually kick off to start to enjoy the main characters. But unlike the manhua that is conventional, the main characters grow as the show goes on, getting more mature and worldly at a steady speed instead of the arbitrary spikes and dips usually found.

Life and fights lives with one goal: prosperity and liberty through his adversities.


The main issue is the fact that you don’t understand why, when, where. Any manhua reader deserves a rationale concerning why someone does what they do or something that was more complicated, something attributed to heavier emotions. The characters’ uninteresting styles are originated from their obvious characteristic: an easy, juvenile mindset. The story that they’ve been set in is better, with the same quantity of thought put into it as the number of times the key character seems sensible.


Every guidance the storyline goes looks like its come right out of a novel. Feng Shen Ji selected to sugarcoat these platitudes with two processes: Art of such quality that it was nearly distracting and not placing serious emphasis on anything. There clearly was no accurate conflict or plot twists because yet the main events only happen and of how rooted it was to unoriginality, devoid of motifs that are grasping. The inquiry of what's more at fault - the dearth of convincing characters or the storyline stripped naked of sophisticated subjects, this is virtually unable to be replied.

Its greatest advantage is the fact that it’s not just black and white lines, but is fitting and completely coloured of the manhua’s setting. Musclebound guys adorn the pages, accompanied by graceful, sleek-haired girls. Sceneries are drawn. Feng Shen Ji, every couple of pages trades its fashion that is standard for a painted counterpart intended to give emphasis to significant portions of the narrative. Above all, the fight is simple to take in and comprehend.


But despite the way in which the artwork pops with colour, there's a heavy awareness of black and white within the manhua. Characters have little that keeps them fighting keeps them going on, or induces them to behave the way they're. After the battle was created the enemy gods are usually cared for immediately as well as the storyline follows a simple cycle of working/training for independence from struggle, a predicament, along with a big change in scene.


Semblances of increase in characters are only flukes. The principal character, Wu Geng lacks likability and morals from beginning to end. He’s juvenile and impulsive, but if I really could say one thing, I'd say that he acts his age. The sole thing that makes him different from a typical lead that is idiotic is the fact that there’s little to no effort to make him fascinating besides his monologues that are immature. The sole increase that the other characters, or he, have are changes from year to year in look and status.


Besides him, the rest are readily forgotten, seen as interchangeable by the writer and of the characters cloud together. What makes them unique is the reality that, unlike a lot of characters today, there aren't any cheap, tawdry spices added (the same spices that, paradoxically, makes them intolerable). Their characters come from the common archetypes. Maybe, in the writer’s head, this strategy made the manhua realistic.


Little to no emphasis is put on emotional increase, and instead the focus is really on the mindless amusement quality (through gore, departures) and how fairly the bundle it’s wrapped in appearances. However, this manhua is a seinen. For anyone who'd like to light novel online and want to see some great fight scenes, then I recommend it.

In case your dog strains to pee or blood appears in the urine, he could have problems with urinary bladder rocks. Take him to the veterinarian as quickly as possible for an evaluation. Dependant on the analysis, your dog might require operation for stone removal. One type of stone occasionally dissolves through prescription diet treatment, but there's no promise. Your veterinarian probably will put your dog on a long-term new diet to prevent future stone formation. Struvite stones, the most typical type of dogs urinary bladder stone, can occasionally be removed through diet as opposed to surgical means. Through urinalysis, which reveals the existence of crystals, the building blocks of rocks, and through the use of a X ray or ultrasound, your veterinarian can be capable to see the stone. You shoul read this artical : dry dog food for labradors

In case the rocks will not be substantial and aren't obstructing the urethra, which is a veterinary crisis, your veterinarian might prescribe a diet designed to boost acid levels in the urine, eventually inducing the rocks to dissolve. While your dog probably will stay on a particular diet for the rest of his life, the prevention diet differs from the dissolution diet. In case your pet urinary bladder rocks include calcium oxalate, you do not have the possibility to dissolve them through diet. They require surgical removal. A high percentage of dogs with such rocks develop them again, even with dietary changes. 

That's because, unlike struvite stones, calcium oxalate stone growth is not generally related to diet, but might result from genetic or metabolism problems. Your veterinarian will prescribe a diet low in calcium and oxalate, a naturally occurring substance, to minimize the possibilities of new stone formation. While prescription diets can be found in both canned and dry types, the former is preferable. Nutritionally balanced prescription diets for urinary bladder rocks include low quantities of protein, phosphorous and magnesium, all of which aid in stone development. While suitable, prescription diets will not be cheap and not all dogs find them palatable. Ask your veterinarian about preparing home cooked meals for the dog which can be nutritionally balanced and low in protein, magnesium and phosphorous. Read more at website : Dogs to love
