I got a bit of a break this weekend, but spent most of it cleaning. Ha, figures. I hope to do something on Koi to Gunkan or Trafalgar sometime soon. I did take some time to care for my new arrivals–small in number, but pretty!
I’m making a concentrated effort to collect more of Hagio Moto’s manga. It’s a bit of a daunting task, considering she’s been hard at work for decades! After Zankoku na Kami ga Shihai Suru, I went for Marginal. I love her sci-fi stuff and when she mixes BL elements into shoujo (she’s a genius at it–being one of the first will do that, huh?), so it was a natural pick. I got the original editions because there’s multiple color pages, not just in the front of the book, and there’s even a red-toned prologue. You won’t find this in bunko! The books themselves were cheap and in great condition (paper edges ground down, love that). It’s always the shipping that hurts when it comes to used manga.
Finally got the rest of Hiiragi Nozumu’s manga! More color pics of Marginal and future order under the cut.
Stunning art made even more so with the addition of color tone on 54 pages!
I made an order for late November. I placed it hastily, as the stars aligned and everything I wanted was still available for preorder. Which means 3 days later, the Dame BL Anthology was finally given a release date and was left out for now.
