Weekly Rounds: Mega Manga Intake! and other news…

This update is late because I actually had some semblance of a social life for once.

But in the early afternoon, I went on the usual rounds plus an extra trip to Kinokuniya since they were having a 20% discount on all items. I’ve been losing track of my manga due to the sheer volume of it so I tend to miss out certain releases especially if they aren’t local ones.

Happily, I discovered the following:

  • Genshiken 7 (I missed 6 and it was out of stock)
  • NHK ni Youkouso 3 and 4
  • School Rumble Treasure File (Costs double the retail price in Japan though)
  • Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan 2
  • Death Note 11
  • Shikigami no Shiro 2 and 3 (I haven’t even read one yet)
  • Ouran High School Host Club book 1, 3, 5, 7 (I finally gave in to temptation but why the odd numbers? The even ones were sold out.)

The highlight was Gunslinger Girl 6. GG is possibly the best gun-based manga I’ve ever read. It’s just that good. The anime is alright but it ends too early. Please go read it guys!

I really couldn’t decide whether I should buy the SR Treasure File book. It’s expensive and damn thick but for the sake of the nice SR-info hungry guys around, I decided to get it.

At the stores, there weren’t much new stock. Notable ones were the uber-expensive Medicom Rei and Asuka action figures that did not have any visible joints and were some 30++ cm tall. Himekuri Image Girl was also there, but it’s crap. I think I saw the new Bleach trading figures too. But who cares about that?

  • Erm, I think I get the feeling that GG is especially good to you because they have the particular good stuff you want: Guns, and lolis using them at that…..

    Heh. But yeah, I liked the anime, but it ended too soon.

  • Where or where did you get GG Manga beyond Vol. 3?? Did you fing a fan translation or do you read Japanese?
