Hi, hi! Welcome to day 5 of the anime challenge! Today’s topic is: Anime You’re Ashamed You Enjoyed.
Okay, so, in all honesty, I cannot think of an anime that I can say I’m ashamed to have watched. HOWEVER, I can say there is a manga series that I’ve read that I would not normally go around telling everyone that I’ve read so I’ll go with that.
That manga would be: After School Nightmare.
It was written by Setona Mizushiro and originally published in Princess magazine.

The main reason I hadn’t gone around telling anyone that I’d read it was because I read it when I was in 9th or 10th grade and it’s…interesting.
It’s been a long time since I’ve read it, but from what I remember it’s about a character, Mashiro Ichijo, who is neither male nor female. Everyone assumes Mashiro is a male, however, what people do not know is that while Mashiro has the upper body of a male, he has the lower body of a female.
The manga is about Mashiro’s journey in a dream world in which the goal of graduation for Mashiro is to decide weather he wants to live out his life as a male or female. This decision is influenced heavily on weather Mashiro wants to date a promiscuous male, Sou Mizuhashi or Kureha Fujishima, a female who has a strong distrust of men due to her past.
Throughout the series, the reader also gets to see a lot of issues that other characters are dealing with as well as well as getting to find out if each character graduates by finding their true selves.
I really should go back and read it some time. I really did enjoy it. The only reason I would’ve been embarrassed to tell anyone back when i actually read it was that I lived in a very small town so it would have been blown out of proportion. People would’ve said I was reading ‘porn’ and stuff like that and it just wasn’t worth the hassle.
It is a great manga and I would highly recommend it to anyone that’s interested in this sort of genre!
Is there an anime or manga that you’re embarrassed that you enjoyed? You don’t have to let me know which ones, but I’d be interested to see how many yes’ and no’s there would be! :3 Let me know here or on facebook! Thanks for reading!
