October Goodies Arrive

By , October 4, 2011 9:48 pm

A package arrived in my mailbox today. It was a heavy package which can only mean one thing for an otaku: manga! This month’s haul is a bunch of manga I ordered during one of Rightstuf’s recent sales. Yeah, everyone knows it’s easy to just download scanlated manga online, but I believe supporting the industry, especially outside of Japan is important so I am happy to buy worthwhile releases such as these. Speaking of which, what did I get this time? Let’s see!

Now that I look at it, it seems to be a bunch of shoujo-y stuff.  My true nature is showing? ^^; It’s OK, because they’re all great series! ^^b

If you happened to notice, this stack is missing Sunshine Sketch volume 4. For some reason, it is (and has been for a while) sold out at every online shop I’ve looked at! It seems to be out of print :(. I emailed Yenpress about it but haven’t heard back yet.  I hope it’s just temporary as I really want my Hidamari Sketch collection to be complete! Aside from Hidamari Sketch, I’ve also got Bunny Drop which I was convinced into ordering after watching the excellent anime that recently aired. I expect the manga to be just as good! I’ve also got the second volume of Book Girl and the ultimate moe-blob series, K-ON!

K-ON! seems to get a fair share of criticism but I truly like it. The manga looks just as irresistibly cute and hilarious as the anime series. Here’s a quick peek…

Yui is such an airhead ^^;

k-on manga-2
There are full-color pages scattered between the chapters as well :3

You can pick out the art difference between the anime and the manga but the jokes are characters are still there. Looking forward to reading more of Kakifly’s work :D

That’s all for now, thanks for stopping by!

This small packet of awesome arrived today.  What could it be?  Boo Boo KagaBoo, of course!  Confused?  Wondering why Kagami has turned into a cute piggy thing?  Well, it’s a 4koma by Eretto, the guy behind the popular Nyoron Churuya-san manga ;)  Yep, that guy.  This is his take on Lucky Star :D
