2013/04 April-May Updates

So this is what happens when you try to make promises; jinx!
To make up for last month, we bring you 3 feature posts with all new additions and all different [sc], too!. You'll find at least 1 of every status: dropped, complete, active, oneshot.
Call it a belated birthday gift, which is what got us into trouble!

Scroll down for the posts if you're on the homepage, otherwise click the links below.

Manga-Garden's 7th Anniversary Gift: Featured Titles - Our Favourite Genres
1. March Comedy   Designed to make you laugh :D - or at least smile. :)
2. April Adventure   aka Fantasy D:
3. May Mystery    a lot more saved for later themes, which made it much hard to choose.

*There are no preview images because, lordy, the cover images needed too much editing.
*Most of the [sc] of the featured titles are gone, so check 'em out and the good ol' days.

So Happy 7th BDay to Manga-Garden. Will we survive another year? Stay tuned to find out! And, hey, come say hello in the comments or chatbox. We need some cheer. All the old messages in our chatbox mysteriously disappeared.

P.S. Personal storage and computer problems will limit new titles until we save enough money to get things fixed. =_=

2013/05 May Featured Titles

This is the 3rd and last part of our 7th Anniversary Gift.
Our 3rd theme is another genre that we love: Mystery!

Another coincidence? All of these [sc] groups have closed. ;_; Ahh, we're showing our age again. They were all great groups and we'll probably feature them in the future. And who knows; one of them might resurrect. Cookie to anyone who correctly answers which one of the 3 below did resurrect once.

Kira Kira Labyrinth ~view PREVIEW1, PREVIEW2, PREVIEW3~
Arisu chose an all-girls high school to get away from boys because they're too immature. Heck, she'd rather fall in love with a girl. School life at the dorms is going pleasantly well until her new roommate arrives. Kira is pretty and seems like a perfect girl, but she reveals a shocking secret to Arisu. In addition, Kira's real purpose for entering the school is to investigate the apparent suicide of an elder sister.

We wanted to put up some titles that weren't fantasy related, but there wasn't enough time and few choices...maybe another time.
