I just bought Naruto Shippuden the movie.
And if you want to watch an awesome anime movie, I just bought Grave Of The Fireflies-sooooooo sad, but sooooooo good! (A very profound film.)
I watched Grave of the Fireflies when it was on tv.
I was like, hey a Ghibli movie (having only seen a few of the happy ones). My sister said it was a very good movie, so we watched it together.
It was so sad, I had to cry!
This week I came across a website where it was said there is also a live-action version of this movie, but I haven't seen that one.
too bad that it was sad.
I don't like sad movies :(
no new manga/anime for me at the moment, but there is a book (non manga) that I want and it comes out on Tuesday. I'll have to order more stuff if I want free shipping, so maybe I'll get some manga.
I don't usually like sad movies either, but there is just something about Grave Of The Fireflies. I'm not sure I would like it as a live action film though. It wouldn't be the same.
i thought the live action movie (which was a made for tv movie) was actually pretty well done. where the anime was told from the point of view of the two kids, you see a lot of where the aunt is coming from in the live action... since it is narrated by her oldest daughter. it probably wasn't a good idea that i knew what was going to happen... i started crying very early on. and that little kid... she did pretty well.. ~____~
to get on topic, my latest manga purchase... is always what's on my recent list on my profile. XD most recently i got a few volumes of momoiro heaven, kyou koi wo hajimemasu, kiss & never cry (figure skating - just in time for winter olympics? XD), rockin' heaven, etc.
for the latest anime.. probably kodocha season 2. (i've mostly only been buying the anime i watched a long, long time ago.. and ghibli) my husband also got me the ponyo r2 se. :)
kiss & never cry, I've never hear of that series. What is it about, other then figure skating?
As for the book that was suppose to come out on Tuesday, the release date was pushed back to next month :(
Kiss & Never Cry (The title is a reference to the "kiss & cry seats" where competitive skaters await their score). Story starts out with a group of kids who become friends at the skating rink. The main focus is on the girl, who is very cheerful and quite talented... and it's mostly narrated by the guy who joins the group late with his sister. At one point she runs away from home.. but when they find her, she's not the same anymore. Something happened to wipe away her cheerfulness. Years have passed, and she's a competitive skater... and the guy gets back in touch with her. They still haven't figured out what happened all those years ago, but it seems to be quite traumatic.
As far as I know, it's not available in the American market at this time.
My copy of Night of the Beasts volume 3 came in yesterday. I have to re-read the first two over again before I start it because I read them over 2 years ago. It is a series I always meant to get back to and just never got around to. The problem is that it does seem to be going out of print and I don't have the money to get them all at once!
Sayonara Zetsubou-Sensei Volume 5 and Tsubasa Volume 25 recently arrived. Loving Zetsubou-Sensei - great sense of humor, and I'm happy to hear the anime finally got licensed, too. :) Apparently they've got a new translator working on the series, though, and the translator's notes aren't quite as comprehensive as they used to be. Still good, though.

I'm hitting my fatboy with a soda and my Mangas now.....
I envy you guys for being able to pick up so many manga/anime all at once!
I picked up Bound Beauty volume 3 at Borders on Saturday.
I know what you mean. I don't generally pick up a lot of books at the same time unless I have to spend a certain amount to get free shipping ($39 CND)
> 22 I am taking advantage of the British Pound being low so the books become even cheaper in my own currency.
> 23 I am too afraid of finding that certain volumes are out of print if I don't buy them asap.
Today I got:
Hana-Kimi vol. 1-3
Naoki Urusawa's 20th Century Boys vol. 1 and 3
Pluto vol. 1 and 2
Vampire Game vol. 13
The Kurosagi Corpse delivery service vol. 2
I just got Inuyasha 1 and 2 in Dutch today (yes, I already have them in Japanese, but I wanted to compare translations and now I can lend them out to other people whom I want to introduce to Inuyasha XD (and let them know what this series is that I like so much...)).
Bleach 11-14 I'm really getting into it. ;-)
Bride of the Water God 5
My latest manga purchases:
Noaki Urasawa's 20th Century Boys volume 07
How to Capture a Martini
In the Walnut volume 01
what do you prefer, Bleanch manga or anime?
I would love to read Bride of the Water God. Do you have any trouble finding the volumes? are you American?
no I'm not american, i'm from austria, there is amazon, or bol.de, I can find english manga just fine. Bride of the Water god is really good, and looks wonderful, and I want to support the artist, so I buy them. If you want to look into it check out that site: http://manga.animea.net/the-bride-of-the-water-god-chapter-1-page-2.html
Bleach: I watched a few episodes a year ago, didn't get into it, and didn't like it that much, too much comedy, but I still started the manga a few months ago, and so far, the manga is better. Usually I find the manga/novel better than the anime, but I will try the anime again, after a while.
wow, thanks for the link. I already read the first chapter. So far, so good.
I also like supporting the artist, but if I purchased all the manga that I have read I would be broke.

I'm kind of kicking myself because we wound up with some hefty repair bills that I should have/would have used the money on if I had only known. But, I can't say I'll be unhappy when my manga gets here!
Just received book 4 of Tokyopop's translation of Fuyumi Ono's The Twelve Kingdoms series. It's a bit of a chunkster though being about half again as big as any of the previous novels.
Within the last... week?
BLACK BIRD 1-9 by Sakurakoji Kanoko
Kinkyori Ren'ai 6 by Mikimoto Rin
Jikan no Arukikata 1 by Enomoto Nariko

Sakura-hime Kaden 1 by Tanemura Arina
Hapi Mari 3 by Enjouji Maki
Are mo shitai, kore mo shitai by Hazuki Kanae
Hoping Kino actually stocks L♥DK 2-3 soon...
Have already read through BLACK BIRD, and I swear they're just playing with you. I want to know how it ends, though. I'm pretty happy with Kinkyori Ren'ai 6 and Hapi Mari 3. (Definitely do NOT pick up Kinkyori Ren'ai 5 without 6.) Are mo.. is as expected.. Seiyuu ka! and Sakura-hime Kaden are ok so far. (The latter seems pretty typical for Tanemura Arina) Jikan no Arukikata is a pleasant surprise for a random pick. :)
i definitely didn't expect it to get this long... and it's not even over yet. i get the feeling that we're gonna see at least 3 more volumes before they wrap it up. i definitely won't complain if it ends before then. XD;
I went to Kino and Book-off last week and I brought:
Omoide Konpeitou by MOCHIDA Aki
Cherry ni Kuchizuke 1 by TAKEUCHI Masami
Chu Shite BOMB! 1 by KURITA Riku
Milky Way by TACHIKAKE Hideko (bunko)

Oh, and my local Book-off is moving to a new location. It will be on 45th St., right in between 5th and 6th avs. I will definitely go there once I come back from my trip to Chile on April 27th.
Latest anime DVDs:
Honey and Clover Box Set 3
The Irresponsible Captain Tylor TV Collection (Remastered)
>37 Wait, Book-Off is moving? When is this happening?
(From a Brooklynite who hasn't been to Manhattan in a while)
My father told me when I was about to go into the cashier. It will reopen in their new location on April 17th. Again, the new location will be on 45th Street, right in between 5th and 6th Avs.
I recently purchased Mixed Vegetables volumes 3 to 6 and I have Platinum Garden volumes 4 to 7 on order.
I also received The Vision of Escaflowne 1 and 2 from bookmooch.
My latest purchase was mostly BL:

otona no shoumei
strobe edge 8
quite a lot of flower comics, for some reason. (i guess i'm catching up from my 5 year phase of "i don't want to read anything under flower comics".) also my first princess comics titles. i think i'm turning into a yamada komomo fan, and definitely looking for more of her manga to check out (mainichi kimi... and kinkyori lovers are the two i have in the list). kaikan shounin G turned out to be.. NSFW. x____x i opened it up, then had to quickly stash it away after seeing the contents. (these manga are wrapped in plastic when i buy them, so it's not like i can preview before purchase.) interestingly enough, i'm getting quite a few one-shots or compilations of one-shots... i used to not have any, just because i enjoy series and wrap-ups.
Do you read Japanese manga? I am so jealous. I wish I was able to do that.
My latest manga purchases:
Arata Kangatari volume 1
Bunny Drop volume 1

Hot Gimmick volume 4 (VIZBIG Edition)
Rurouni Kenshin volume 9 (VIZBIG Edition)
switch volume 13
With the Light: Raising an Autistic Child volume 6
yes, i do... and i much prefer to read them that way. :) i'm sure you'd be able to do it... although it might be slow at first. if you read enough, you'll notice a lot of reoccurring words and lines. XD (btw, i adore bunny drop!)
in any case.. i dropped by the con last weekend, so i figured, why not? i haven't watched much of any of the newer stuff, so i'm back filling some of the titles i've watched a long time ago.
devil hunter yohko (complete)
irresponsible captain tylor (complete)

I recently bought the Viz big edition of InuYahsha, it has three volumes in one. What a deal. I like to buy multi-volumes in one volume, I am trying to save money while getting as much manga as possible.

>69 and yeah, lol, we do seem to buy a lot of the same titles, millenium prime minister, however, I am now two books behind I guess, lol, I just have the first volume
I love Millennium Prime Minister, though I was hoping it would be a shounen-ai/BL as I don't like the heroine. It is a good series, though.
I got the first two books of NG Life but I cannot say I enjoyed it, so I stopped buying it. The same goes for Sumomomo Momomo. I hated the heroine.
What do you think of Karakuri Odette? I have been hearing lots of good things about it but I didn't get the chance to read it. I was under the impression that it might not be something I will enjoy.
millenium prime minister was my riskiest purchase, I'd have to say, cuz I thought at first that it was going to be a BL book, and I don't read those, so, even if the heroine can be kind of annoying, it's fun :)
and lol, NG Life, what an odd premise. I started it because I absolutely loved Mugen Spiral, wish it had been longer! there was so much that could have been done!
and I really like Karakuri odette, the heroine is really good, and I'm really enjoying the series

(enough that i don't even want to check out the jdrama based on it, even if it rated well enough.) i guess i wanted to see if she writes anything but the crazy. i guess people who like angst and battle royale will like it...

How do you like Cactus's Secret? I didn't get this one as I thought it was one of those typical shoujo manga that I read million times. I always look for unique, different stories now.
well, I like it, it's really cute, and, it actually seems different then typical. usually it takes them forever to finally confess their feelings. he finds out how she feels towards the end of the first book. so, the type isn't exactly typical, but, it is quite fun

Saturn Apartments 1
Any comments on My Girlfriend's a Geek? I've been thinking about picking that one up, if only from the library, but I'm not sure if I want to make the effort of an ILL if it's going to be something I'll hate.
I've been reading Saturn Apartments on the Viz Ikki website, and it's quite interesting - I wonder how it will develop.
I got the first volume of My Girlfriend's a Geek and read it. I have to say that it is good but not anything special. I am not yet sure whether I will continue collecting it.
I see a couple new releases on the lists I want to get, but I'm in the process of moving and am trying hard not to add to what I'm already trying to find room for.
That said today I mooched Under the Glass Moon volume 1 because I couldn't pass it up. Manga I want doesn't often make an appearance on BookMooch.
Thanks - that sounds to me like it's definitely a "library if it's easy to do" thing (or "sit in the bookstore to read"). The fujoshi thing sort of intrigues me, but I can see it going really wrong really easily.
Anyway. I finally bought Yotsuba&! #1 today, after having purchased 2-5 the last few months. "Oh, I already borrowed it from the library, I don't need to own it" I had told myself. but, no, my OCD was making me crazy about the missing volume - luckily, the copy I saw at the used bookstore last week was still there today.
I love Yotsubato!. It is one of those lighthearted series that brings a smile to my face. I have all 8 volumes that have been published and I am awaiting volume 9 in December.
Actually, what attracted me to My Girlfriend's a Geek first is the fact that the girl is a fujoshi and I am kinda one too but I don't see myself continuing buying it. The fact that I am trying to cut down on my manga purchases is a factor too.

Maoh: Juvenile Remix 1

when you read Maoh, tell me what you think about it, cuz I debated if I wanted to read it, but passed it up for other series that I'm currently reading
I thought it was a bit weird and different from what I have been reading. I didn't really hate it but I don't think I will be collecting it.

What do you think of RIN-NE? I am a fan of Rumiko Takahashi but I cannot say I like all her works.
Oh, and I saw that you got Neko Ramen too. Is it good?
Rin-Ne is really good. yeah, I was iffy, because besides inuyasha, I haven't liked anything else she's done, but, it's an entertaining story, with really good characters.
and lol, Neko ramen is so weird! the characters are weird, everything about it is weird, lol

it's been a while since i've picked anything up by andou natsumi (i haven't seen anything by her at the bookstore in a while), and, wow, arisa is a little dark... (but, thinking back now, mariappoino! had its dark side, too).
datte aishiteru reminds me of sekai wa minna boku no tame by saitou rin...
toraware gokko (stolen hearts) is turning out to be quite cute, but it really is taking its sweet time... i wonder how much longer the author plans to continue this for... then again, it's serializing in The Hana to Yume...
i'm looking forward to starting reimei no arcana, since it seems to be quite popular with readers... (and i liked boku wa kiss de uso wo tsuku by the same author)...

i'd previously read toma rei's boku wa kiss de uso wo tsuku, but i wanted to have my copy. it's not absolutely phenomenal, but i liked it enough that i want my own copy.
mitsuki kako and morie satoshi are a given for me right now; i've been enjoying their stories, and i want to see what else they've come up with.

Too bad I couldn't find the latest volume of 20th Century Boys.
I just bought Emma by Kaoru Mori volumes 2-4 because they were the only one that I was missing from the series and someone posted on the discussion boards that CMX is shutting down.
There is also another series from CMX that I like called Land of the blindfolded, but the library has the series so I don't think I'm going to try to buy it.
I also bought Vampire Knight Volume 1 in order to spend enough to get free shipping. Yesterday I saw VK 1 at a used book store for 1/3 of the price *sigh* oh well :(
I love Emma. I read all 10 volumes and enjoyed them all.
I just bought Vampire Knight 10, cant wait to get a chance to read it.
Here's what came in the mail today:
Neko Ramen, V.01
Red Hot Chili Samurai, V.01
Afterschool Charisma, V.01
Peace Maker Kurogane, V.04
Hero Tales, V.03
Shinobi Life, V.05
i lurve it, as well. it was a little odd for me since i picked that up at the same time as suki tte ii na yo! which is a favorite.. the female protagonists are in almost the same situation..

20th Century Boys 09
My latest manga purchase was:
Fairy Tail 4
Shaman King 5
Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle 4 & 5
I love Emma too!
A while ago I got volume 7 of Chii's Sweet Home! :D Hooray for adorable kitten manga~
It's been quite a while since I've been able to hit a bookstore, but I've been reading through my backlog so it's not too bad. Here's what I read in the past month:
Yotsuba&!, volumes 4-5
Hoshin Engi, volumes 7-8
Waiting for me are Yotsuba&! 6-7, Hoshin Engi 9, Children of the Sea 2, and .hack//Another Birth 2-4 and G.U.+ 1.
In the manga department, I recently recieved Monster 14-18 from Amazon.com. I've really loved what I've read of this series, and hope I get enough time off from work to read it (I've only read up to 5).
As for anime, I bought both Armitage III and RG Veda used from the local hastings.
Kare Kano vols 1-3 collection
Dengeki Daisy 1
so far, I love, love, love, love!!!! dengeki daisy!!! it's so cute and fun!!!!!!!
Is Dengeki Daisy better than Beast Master? I am a bit hesitant whether to get it or not as I didn't enjoy Beast Master at all, which is by the same creator.
well, I guess it depends on the reasons why you didn't like beast master. it is quite different from beast master, with a strong and sane male lead this time, lol. it's sad, but, "daisy" always being there for the girl...it's really good
Me disliking Beast Master has nothing to do with the characters. It just felt like there is no plot and I don't like wasting my time and money on series that don't have plot or story.
I have been hearing good things about Dengeki Daisy, so I might give the first volume a try and then decide whether to continue getting it or not.
you know, I do agree with you there, beast master really had nothing to it, I liked it cuz I thought it was so cute, but, you're right, there was no story. dengeki daisy has more of a story, with the death of her brother, and her desire to find out who daisy is
dengeki daisy is quite enjoyable so far... with all the conspiracies going about. i'm getting kinda fidgety with our bookstore not stocking the title... _-_;;
Finally got a trip to the bookstore!
Mega Man Megamix Volume 1
Rosario Vampire, Season II, Vol. 1
Twin Spica, Volume: 01
For manhwa, One Fine Day, Vol. 1. I've seen this in Yen+, it's so cute!
For EOL, Nightschool, Vol. 3: The Weirn Books, I love Chmakova. :D
I'm so excited! I had to skip on a bunch of stuff to keep my expenses down, but I plan to make it up at Otakon at the end of this month! :B
Just recently got:
Fairy Tale 5
Soul Eater 2
Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle 7
Shaman King 6
Full Metal Alchemist 10
I need to get Tsubasa 6 still though. =( They didn't have it at the book store I went to. All well...I've still got all the others to keep me occupied for a little bit. =)

toraware no kimi ni mezame no KISS wo
usotsuki na gemini 2
first of all, saint oniisan is hilarious... usotsuki na gemini is kinda eh, but i want to just finish the story.
second of all, i can't wait 'til next month's volume of betsuhana comes out.. it will have a new special short story for i hate you more than anyone!
akagami no shirayuki hime 2-4
hakushaku to yousei 1
kaizoku to ningyo 2
kyou mo asu mo. 1-6
usotsuki na gemini 3
i'm greatly enjoying akagami no shirayuki hime (red-headed snow white) and kyou mo asu mo (today, tomorrow).. reminds me of why i love hana to yume so much. kyou mo asu mo, is a series by emura, who also wrote w juliet... and i didn't really think i'd like it so much. (i'm partway through the second volume now, and there's a cameo from the w juliet pair. XD) on the other hand, kaizoku to ningyo (the pirate and the mermaid), also a hana to yume title, seems like it's just one step away to soft BL. ;p i can't say it's without a plot, but it seems to be without direction. story's kinda shallow at 2 volumes, and i hope this improves, because i actually rather like the characters from surface value.
okay, back from my vacation, and back to shopping!!!

Is Volume 4 of Bound Beauty available? I thought Go! Comi is out of business now. I so loved the first three volumes, so if this is true, I would be so happy.
I haven't brought anything in ages, my mum keeps chucking my anime and manga stuff out. She hates the t.v and anime! lol!
I have my fingers crossed. it was taken off of borders website for a while, but it got added back on.....so I went ahead and reserved it with the hopes that maybe another company picked it up
So it is not published yet, right? I mean, you don't have the actual book. I thought it was published.
Last weekend I when on vacation to the US and found 2 used book stores selling manga (and they had a lot of it). I bought:

A friend had given me One Piece 5-7, so I had to get 3 and 4 soon or it would drive me crazy. It looks like I'm going to have to pick up Tsubasa 6 and +Anima 7 online. My book store doesn't seem to be stocking them. =(
I was recommended Gakuen Alice, but they didn't have book 1. That's sad. I'll have to get that online too. =/
just picked up:
I was put off for a while, cuz of the weird title, but I read the back and flipped through, and it seems cool
While at JAFAX 15 (a convention at Grand Valley State University in Michigan) I picked up the first three volumes of Soul Eater.
20th Century Boys 10
Gakuen Alice 12
Kaze Hikaru 18
Your & My Secret 6
Gentlemen's Alliance Cross Vol. 11
the library only had up to volume 10 so I bought the last one (I could not find it online).
Buying One Piece volumes lately. Picked up 12-15 so I still have a long way to go! haha
Also got bleach all colour but the black
Really nice art in there. Really ... colorful!? :p
I am going crazy because I caved and ordered Yostuba&! vol 6 mid-August from alibris, and today marked 3 weeks since the expected delivery date. I was trying to wait until I could find it for less than half the new price, but I just couldn't wait any longer. I'm going to have to email the seller to complain, I think. :(
Surprised you lasted till 3 weeks after expected delivery date. I get impatient after a couple of days of delays >>
No, I was whinging to all my friends when it wasn't here by the 2-week expected date that alibris gave me. But I had ordered other books that were arriving at different times, so when those arrived, my impatience was eased up just a bit. So, basically, it's been 5 and a half weeks since I made the order and got the email that it should arrive within the next 2 weeks... And since school started last week, I haven't ordered any books for a few weeks now, knowing I couldn't enjoy them, so I haven't been getting anything in the mail to help tide me over...
I'm also getting impatient because I sent in the pre-order for Usagi Drop 2 a few weeks before the Yotsuba order, and the release date is taking too long to arrive :( Luckily, the Book Depository is a lot more reliable than random alibris sellers with only 4 stars.

i forgot i already owned suki, tokoro ni yori arashi... _-_ too bad i didn't have time to reference my list on LT at the time...i'd already read it.. but i keep mixing up the title with the one i'm actually looking for... since i started looking for them together.. ^^;;
somehow i thought (and hoped) that BLACK BIRD would end already.. but they're really settling in for an epic.
BABY★LOVE is an old love from almost a decade ago that i never got the complete series to... i saw it in a bundle, and couldn't resist!
chuu.gaku.sei was a bit of a disappointment... but himitsu, himitsu was quite enjoyable. i really enjoyed the warmth in each of the characters and each of the stories. i'm in the midst of reading hayashi mikase's the blue library, and it's quite pleasant, for all that it's toned down.
Yay, Yotsub&! #6 arrived today, after so many weeks of waiting :D
Naturally, I used my one hour of wakefulness after getting home from work to read it (twice >.>) rather than do homework...
Every new volume is always my favorite volume :P

I really love the quality of the Yen Press book. I can't help but compare it to my TokyoPop ones (and also my Yen Press Yotsuba vs. ADV Yotsuba), and I'm pretty pleased with it. They feel really nice, and I like the way they do the translation notes in the back. I think I might get some more Yen Press books in the future.
Alice in the Country of Hearts 4
Kimi ni Todoke 12 (Japanese)
Kyo Kara Maoh! 7
Mad Love Chase 4

I just bought three new french manga. As far as I know the first two have not been translated into english.
Les Princes du Thé 1
Les Mystères de Taishô 1
Le pacte des Yôkai 9 (Natsume's book of friends in english)
Les Princes du Thé is a really cute story.
I picked up:
7 Billion Needles, Volume 1 by Nobuaki Tadano
House of Leaves, Vol. 1 by Natsume Ono
Koko be Good by Jen Wang
AX Volume 1: A collection of Alternative Manga edited by Sean Michael Wilson
Solanin by Inio Asano
A Drunken Dream and Other Stories by Moto Hagio
De Tedere Jaren, 01 by Jiro Taniguchi
the books are hard to find, and amazon still had a few copies left, so I decided to buy them before they were all gone.
really trying to take a break from buying so much manga... other hobbies are catching up, so i'm building a backlog... _-_

175> Oh, yay, I didn't realize Seven Days had come out! That was the first BL I read and didn't totally hate or feel complete apathy towards, so I've been looking forward to buying it. (It was totally the unusual art that won me over.)
edit: Also, I've been trying to verify: Aria 2-in-1 #4 is the original volumes 7 and 8, or 6 and 7? I'm not sure if they started with Aqua as #1 or not. Also, it's confusing me that the Tokyopop covers are being used on those in the LT system.
yep, seven days did come out, but in german language. I'm from austria, I buy english manga as well, but these 3 volumes are all in german. I don't think that seven days is in america out yet. I've read it today, and I liked the art, and the topic, and I tend to love boyslove. ;-)
As far as I know, Aria is the sequel to Aqua 1+2, in germany there is this 2in 1 version from tokyopop, Aria 4 = Aria 7+8, so Aqua is not included in the Aria-Series.
177> Well, drat. I know Seven Days is supposed to be out in English very very soon. Guess I have to wait a titch longer to order it. :D
And thanks, I knew about Aria being the sequel to Aqua, but I wasn't sure if the 2-in-1 versions lumped Aqua in or not. And of course, the way Tokyopop did the covers had me unsure. You just can't tell from a book with cover #5 if it is only #5 or #5 and #6 or something else without more knowledge. (Can I add that it is SUPER annoying that Tokyopop have released through volume 8 in German but are over a year behind with releasing #6 in English? To the point that it seems like they dropped the entire series.)
Here in europe tokyopop has not that bad reputation, they tend to bring everything out, except for light novels, they canceled them recently. I'm still hoping for the twelve kingdoms-novels in english language. Also Saiyuki Reload 10 should come out already!!! What's going on?
Here we have an another publisher thats much worse - thats panini, they nearly canceled everything over the years, and they tend to have bad quality as well, and the mangas are more expensive.

mikado no shihou 1
i almost didn't pick up mikado no shihou, since i've been trying to cut down on my spending... and this title would have been too random. i'm glad i didn't skip on it, though. i think it's really rather cute... and i'm looking forward to the next volume. :D
picked up arisa 5.. and it looks like i'm in for a long haul on that one... hopefully not too long. i really want to know who the 'king' is.
hoshi no koe... i remember when the anime first came out... but i forgot how depressed it made me until i read the manga and remembered the full premise. =__= the manga seems to have a more hopeful end, though.. compared to what i remember of the anime... (which is probably even more hopeful than gunbuster...)
i'm also rather enjoying kanojo wa... i want vol 5 already.... -____-;

Well, Seven Days has arrived now (and I signed up for Amazon Prime Student just to speed it up). It's the first unabashedly romance manga I've ever bought, and I'm still struggling to come to terms with the romance novels hidden in the back of my closet. Somehow, it's much less embarrassing, or perhaps just much easier to pretend to be only a Real Literature reader, when my romance novels and manga come in the form of PDFs and ZIP folders on my computer.

i almost missed taiyou no ie... which would have been incredibly regrettable, since i love the author. but this work is her first one under a different publisher, so it really kinda threw me off when i saw her name in a different section of the bookstore than usual.
picking up my first 3 volumes of manga from hatta ayuko ever.. and i'm really charmed so far. art is clean, stories are rather funny; they give a pretty good impression. i'm looking forward to reading more by her. :3

It's half and half right now for pre-timeskip and post-timeskip volumes, right? (ah, actually, it skipped at volume 6? so I wonder if there won't be 10 volumes in the end?)

tomodachi no hanashi is a one-volume story that was a collaboration between kawahara kazune (sensei!, high school debut, aozora yell) and yamakawa aiji... and i actually rather like it. the story of two girls who value their friendship over romance. anywayz.
bokura wa itsumo is slowing down, and i am wishing for progress. *crosses fingers* (it's also making me wish for the next volume of strobe edge....)
whoa, I didn't know yotsuba had 10 volumes! I thought there were only nine! *happy*
There WERE only 9 - it's an ongoing one ;)
I think the 10th is due out in English in a few months, it just came out in Japanese. (#9's pub date is December 2010 for English - #10 for Japanese was November 2010 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Yotsuba%26!_chapters)
Speaking of Yotsubato!, I just got my 2011 wall calendar. It's not manga (since I asked for the new volumes I don't have as my holiday gift), but it's close! I'm waiting until January 1st to peel off the shrinkwrap and hang it, though. It's super adorable.
Oh. I read somewhere that there were nine volumes before the tenth one came out and didn't realize that it meant there were nine volumes at that time lol. :)

Oh! I saw some people have been getting Aria #6 in English in my Member Connections on the homepage~! So I just ordered mine, though I'm a little bit reluctant to actually deal with Tokyopop anymore. It's been over a year since they originally promised the volume. :(
20th Century Boys 11
Itazura na Kiss 4
The Twelve Kingdoms Novel 4 (paperback)
>228 I just got Aria v. 6 via amazon. I was afraid Tokyopop were going to drop the series, as they kept pushing back the release dates for vols 5 & 6.
Also, Yotsuba&! 9 and Library Wars 3
Just ordered Mushi-shi DVD box set ... can't wait!
Borders had a manga sale and I couldn't resist.
Arata 2 & 3
Black Butler 2 & 3
Sayounara Zetsubou Sensei 1
Time Stranger Kyoko 1
Tegami Bachi 1 & 2
Full Moon 4
Discovered once I got home, I already bought Full Moon.
@230: I loved volume 9!
Though completely unplanned, I found and bought Godchild vols 2-7 at a local used book store for $3.95 each. Now all I have to get is 1 and 8 and I'll have the complete series.
I remember reading a description a long time ago of the series and thinking that it would be interesting, but honestly, I have no idea what the story is about. To have so many volumes of a series at that price I figure, why not?
I love The Gentlemen's Alliance †. I read the entire series last year. The books just keep getting better as the series goes on.
What do you think of Black Butler so far? I'm debating on whether or not I should read the series.
Black Butler is imo great. It's funny, nice plot so far, and great characters! The manga plays in the victorian age in England, and there are similarities to God Child, e. g. there is also a butler who will do anything for his Lord, plays also in the same time, mysterious crimes.. But God Child is more crueler, more tragic, bloodier and sadder, not that funny and it takes a while to appreciate the art and the dark storys, it get's better at Vol. 6.
This thread is starting to be slow to load for me, so I started a new one.

I took advantage of a local Borders going-out-of-business sale and snagged:
One Piece 17-18
Bride of the Water God 7
Cat Paradise 3-5 (end of the series!)
I have a feeling it'll be a while before I buy more books. what with the borders store I work at going out of business, having no job prospects and losing the store I love has made me depressed. and especially knowing all those vultures, who only care about the store now that they get a better deal coming out of the woodwork, it's driving me to the brink.
>241 : I was working at Tower Records when they went out of business, and it was one of the worst periods of my life. So many people have no idea what a soul-destroying experience it is for employees in a situation like that, all they care about is getting a bargain. Even now, I can't bring myself to go to a closing-down sale. I really hope that things look up for you soon and wish you all the best for the future.
