Happy 2012 everyone!
…. and happy chinese new year too! (which is also coming soon!)
Wish you all good health and wealth, in the fabulous new year of 2012 : )
As some of you may already know, that I have been busy packing and moving homes in the last few months. Things are still going hectic at this end, hence please expect delays in updates/ new posts here……. (sorry!!! >;<;:)
Having said that, I did manage to treat myself with a “new year present”; I finally bought a second hand copy of Doubutsu no Oishasan (動物のお医者さん), a series by SASAKI Noriko (佐々木倫子) in her typical quirky sense of humour….. I guess you’d know what I mean if you have also come across with her other series, such as Heaven (ヘブン), Kazoku no Shouzou (家族の肖像) and Otanko Nurse (おたんこナース).
Description (from Baka-Updates): The humorous adventures of a veterinary student, his friends, and his dog — as they learn how to care for all kinds of animals…
My say: Readers will be disappointed if they are expecting for a shoujo-kind-of-a-romantic plot from the series. Chobi, being the main “heroine”, was an Siberian Husky puppy that has a softie/ gold-of-heart character although bore with a face of a “kijo” as her unwilling owner originally thought…. (NB. For those who doesn’t know what “kijo” means, click here).
The series was adapted into J-Drama of the same title in 2003 – more details here.
