My spring break is here and so are my books! My original order with Oyajina! will be here in just a few days as well. In the meantime, I’ve been gorging on my shoujo junk food manga.
I’ve already read Liar x Liar 1-2. I need the third volume (out at the end of this month)! My heart was breaking a bit at the end of Vol 2. At first, I was feeling bad for the brother (does he really not know? I have serious doubts~), but now.. poor Minato. She has a harsh road ahead of her. It’s a love triangle (square counting boy #2) and she’s two of the corners?! I also finished a chunk of Heroine Shikkaku. I adore our faulty shoujo manga heroine and her many hilarious faces, but the main guy Rita is really bothering me. Hatori, you can do so much better than that indecisive, waffling, not 100% faithful slug! She’s a great character and an interesting reminder of all those ugly, mean things we’ve said or done at some point that we want to grow past as a person. Since there’s some information out there about these two titles, I don’t foresee me covering them, but they do catch my interest enough that I would have definitely considered it!
I had a few more manga purchases–I ended up ordering Kurosagi Shitai Takuhaibin 1-11. I really like this series and have wanted it for a while now, but held back because it’s kinda cumbersome to read raw. So I technically ordered the English release, The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service. Between the exchange rate and shipping costs, it worked out better that way. Buying raw used to be much cheaper when I started this hobby, sigh.
I also got a Kindle Touch for reading on the go and decided to pick up one digital manga release for the novelty of it. Mofuku no Dinner Party (Mourning Dinner Party) sounded the most interesting, so I grabbed it. I haven’t finished yet, but I’m a bit disappointed that the text isn’t as crisp as I thought it would be. I’m sure it’s not that particular manga’s fault, just the medium in general. Looks great for regular books at least! Anyway, the pricing model for those digital manga releases is outside of my interest. I just had to test out the new toy!
Despite my now EPIC backlog, Koi to Gunkan 2 will be released in just a few days and I want it desperately. We’ll see… and we’ll see how much of this gets read before I buy Mass Effect 3 and officially become dead to the outside world for minimally two days.
