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…
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!
