I recently read a saga (the story is available in 10 series of novel) entitled PENDRAGON. The first time I read the tittle, I was thinking about Arthurian Legend (About the famous story of King Arthur Pendragon of Camelot and his advisor, Merlin the Warlock), but clearly I was wrong. You can say that I read the novel out of curiosity, and I didn't expect to enjoy the story. Well, I was wrong again I suppose. Without even realizing it, I was drawn to the story (It took the first 3 series of the story to actually realized that I was fall in love with the adventure and the characters). So, I'll try to make a general idea to picture the story:

There was a teenager named Robert Pendragon, although everyone called him Bobby Pendragon or just "Bobby". He was fifteen years old, quite famous at school, and athletic for his age. The night before his final basketball game, a girl named Courtney came and suddenly revealed her interest toward him. She also said that she had a feeling that if she hadn't told him now, she wouldn't have a chance anymore in the future. The cryptic thing happened when Bobby's uncle named Press Tilton came to Bobby and said "There are some people who need your help". In short, Press took Bobby away from his home, friends, family, and even his old life to a different Teritory named Denduron where the people were primitive, and a conflict between two tribes was about to come to a war. He was needed to prevent the war from happening, and to save humanity. But how could he even survive in a different planet that had three suns?

Each book contains a story about Bobby's adventure in a teritory as a Traveler. Throughout the adventures, Bobby would find friendship, love, brotherhood, pain, betrayal, and the answers to all of his questions, including who he is, his family's whereabout, and why he was chosen as the Lead Traveler in the first place. I thing the novels, written by D.J MacHale, are worth reading.

Enjoy ^_^

Ciel Phantomhive and His Demon Butler

Hi guys,,,

I just want to share about manga that I read recently. The manga was written by Yana Toboso entitled "Black Butler" in Indonesia or "Kuroshitsuji" In Japan.

The story was about a 12 years old boy (Earl Ciel Phantomhive) who came from a noble family in England (in 19th century). He lived alone in a manor house with only his butler (Sebastian Michaelis) and 3 other servants.

Sebastian was a perfect butler for Ciel. Too perfect that it was impossible for him to be a human. He was indeed a demon who had a contract with Ciel. He had to help Ciel to achieve his goals (one of them is to find out the reason behind his family's murder), in return, Ciel had to give his soul as the payment.

The story was amazingly complicated. It was very creative how the writer put the dark story side by side with humour.

Moreover, the anime (season 1 and season 2) based on the manga are also available. I've been searching it from the internet for the whole week, because it is pretty difficult to find the link (most of them had been removed from the sites). But here I'll share the links where I think are still available:

I do hope that my information can be helpful for you ^_^
