My Eroica set scheme worked–I got Eroica 1-37 in new condition. They’ve been actively reprinting them. My volume 1 copy is from the 59th printing, haha. That’s great she’s seen enough success over the years to warrant that. First editions aren’t important to me over manga in good condition. :3
I posted over a dozen select cover and back cover scans to my tumblr. Actually, I’ve spammed a number of Eroica images this past month, so check the archive if you’re interested. There’s more images under the cut that illustrate the high quality of the 3 hardback books in the bottom row. They all have multiple color pages and are made from high quality paper/materials. I’m quite impressed and even met my new manga crush.
But the dark horse purchase of this order was Trafalgar. I think I’m in manga love.
I love the men from this drawing era of hers. They are gorgeous and have defined facial features while still having some nice bulk to their bodies. Apparently she likes em bulky 😀 Admittedly, her most recent facial features drawing style isn’t nearly as pleasing to my eye. Except those bunko covers–is it bad I’m still lusting for Eroica bunko just because I love the covers? Terrible…
And now to start tearing through my ridiculous backlog!
