all of the shtuff

I got back sometime yesterday, managed to stop over in Singapore for a while and picked these up, probably my biggest manga purchase in a while, if not ever. Sorry for my crappy photography.

green haired kids

Hung’s been raving about these. Picked up the first volume to give it a try, getting the other 2 was pretty much a no-brainer. Yes, it’s that good. I actually lent them to my sister for a bit — note: she had never read manga before — and she came back demanding the next volume, which by the looks of things could very well be delayed a while.

big eggs!

RahXephon = awesomeness. 3 volumes? CY publishing (i.e. US5/570Yen per vol.)? Definitely.


Hey, I liked that alternate bit in the Eva ending, apparently this carries it on. Plus, volume 2 was out the day I walked into Kinokuniya.

they look the same

Eh, I liked Love Hina.

fruits? in a basket? no!

Can’t hurt to give it a try — if it’s good enough, next stop will be the anime.

I’ve yet to read the School Rumble volumes I picked up earlier, still contemplating whether I should review these series.

It’s Yuki! Reading! In a bag!!

No, I’m not abandoning this, I’ve just realised how much fun it really is to keep a blog on a topic that you can really write about. All my previous attempts to keep a personal blog ended up with inactive blogs that are, to this day, gathering dust in some musty old recess of the web.

Popularity-wise, this has already far exceeded my expectations – 3 months and it’s already garnered over 4000 hits. Heck, I thought I’d be stretching my luck to think about getting 1000 in that time.

In any case, it’s vacation time, I’ll be back in a week, and hopefully I’ll be able to pick some manga and whatnot up. Posting of Zero no Tsukaima episode 4 delayed till I get back.

The Third’s narrator needs to be shot.

In the gut.


In other news, sorry for the lack of updates, had exams the past week, fun.

Thankfully, they end on Monday.

I also managed to get a hold of about 11 Studio Ghibli films as well as Akira. If I manage to get over my lazyness, expect reviews/rants of them on here sometime over the next month.

P.S. Tales of Earthsea (Gedo Senki) airs in 5 days in Japan, can’t wait till it’s subbed and/or released on DVD in the US!
