TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I am covering another webcomic that I stumbled upon during my recent internet travels called Satan and Me. So first, before you guys go running for the hills just from the title…. hear me out okay! So I was browsing a friend’s Tumblr page when I came across this post:
Yeah, soak that in for a bit… hilarious right, ladys, we’ve all wondered about those stupid designs manufacturers put on sanitary napkins. I mean come on they are essentially useless, so why bother even putting them on there in the first place? Beats me…well after laughing at the original post I scrolled down to read the reblog comments, and I’m glad I did because this thing just got 10x better. Upon closer inspection I saw that another Tumblr user, Orange Plum, took the idea and ran with it… the result, a hilariously addictive webcomic!
**I don’t own the images, they are the work of Orangeplum, the comic can be found on Tumblr and on Tapastic.**

Flowers and Bees, also known as Hana to Mitsubachi by Anno Moyoco is a 7 volume slice of life, comedy-romance manga and one of my favorite manga series of all time! I was originally introduced to this manga by a friend of mine back in high school. She lent me all of the volumes that she had (at the time the first five), it took me less than a week to read through them all. So i quickly ran back to get the remaining two volumes only to discover that she didn’t have them! I quickly turned to the internet for scans, but there aren’t any! After a brief moment of dispair, I convinced my mother to order the remaining volumes from Barnes and Noble. The series is out of print…so it was a while before she could even track down the remaining volumes, hell it took me forever to get the first five volumes for myself!
Released in 2000, Flowers and Bees, follows ordinary high school student Komatsu, a hapless underdog in the most basic and literal sense. Komatsu is the guy that girls ignore or laugh at, especially the school it-girl, Sakura, who goes out of her way to make his life a living hell. Our poor hero is the guy that just can’t catch a break no matter what he does. So, tired of living a life of ambiguity, Komatsu vows to change his luck around and become a heartthrob girls like Sakura will be tripping over themselves to get with… He seeks the advice of the Devil Sisters Kyoko and Harumi, who submit him to their own special
torture training so that he too can become a Beautiful Man. He puts himself to all manner of treatments and make overs just so he can pick up girls and experience the sweet life. Follow Komatsu as he learns about a world of desperate housewives, sadistic women, love hotels, as he stumbles and fumbles his way towards love and self acceptance.
