I have a few orders out, covering old, new, and even some English-translated manga. To start, I placed an order to reserve a copy of the special edition of Boku to Kanojo no XXX 8. bk1 closed off their preorder by mid-Sept when I checked (it must not have been available long after they listed it!), so I had to place it elsewhere and that order has already arrived. At least the already released titles!
- Heart no Kuni no Alice – My Fanatic Rabbit 2 by QuinRose / Psyche Delico – dat tongueeeee
- Clover no Kuni no Alice ~Futago no Koibito~
- Inu to Aruku by Yamasaki Hiromi – even though it doesn’t have a corgi chapter, I forgive it. I was a little creeped out by the dog crying 70’s shoujo heroine style, but I like a good dog story and braved it.
- Doko ni mo Nai Kuni by Kusama Sakae – mmm, military-themed story from her? sign me up
- Moon Trick 2 by Morimoto Shuu
- Koibito no Horikata by Hiiragi Nozomu – two of her other manga are out of print
- Drahen no Kishi by Aoike Yasuko – I want to pick up all the nice editions of her stuff out there, so I’m grabbing a few titles here and there
Not sent yet:
- Boku to Kanojo no XXX 8 (end!) by Morinaga Ai
- Ilegenes ~ Giyoku no Koukyoukyoku 1 by Kuwabara Mizuna/ Ishizue Kachiru
- Z Perfect Edition by Aoike Yasuko
I also got a used set of Zankoku na Kami ga Shihai Suru 1-17 by Hagio Moto, its illustration book, and the Yasha illustration book. Zankoku na Kami is one of those long series like Eroica that I’d regret if I never bought it (along with some other Hagio Moto stuff), so I’m going to pick one up every now and then before the dollar tanks against the yen any more.
I have a bk1 order that should ship after 10/25.

And I’ve even bought a few translated volumes in the past few months. Mostly to round up amazon.com orders to get free shipping, but hey! It’s something. It mostly consists of titles I’m too lazy to read without furigana. I’m also going to pick up the re-release of Sailormoon. I wasn’t going to since I own the new editions in Japanese, but I figured it was the first manga I read back in the day with Mixxzine, so I should stop being a cheap bitch and just do it. :-p I also have Princess Knight by Tezuka Osamu on order.. if the release ever stops getting pushed back. I didn’t think it would happen, but I have a tiny collection of English-translated manga forming again. :O
