Umm... no... I bought the Tokyopop version which means $9.99 USD + tax. so if we let it be at $11.50 USD and multiply by $10.85 Pesos, it should be almost a $125 Pesos. And it was worth every damn centavo of it.

Just bought:

Eyeshield 21 v. 7
Land of the Blindfolded v. 7

Eyeshield is still an awesome series; it's the most hilarious manga I'm reading right now.  Land of the Blindfolded is a very underrated series, in my opinion.  It has some really good, touching characters.  Unfortunately, it's hard to find on shelves.

I absolutely loved Shounan Junai Gumi.  The humor is alot more sophmoric than it was in GTO, but it's still a blast.  I definitely recommend it to the 18 and over crowd.

Title: Re: Most Recent Manga Purchase
Post by: dheu on November 13, 2006, 10:22:11 PM
\o/
 
I read a few volumes of Basilisk. I didn't like it at all. I think I was just looking for an era manga that was a little more realistic.  Basilisk didn't fit that bill.  Also, I'm not too fond of the art style.  His eyebrows remind me of the uber eyebrows from FLCL.
 
I really can't wait to hear what you think about After School Nightmare, though, and Her Majesty's Dog.
 
As for myself.... ugh. My manga collection is rapidly surpassing my anime collection. wryyy
 
Recently bought over the last two weeks:
 
Eden 1-4
Dragon Head 1-4
Nodame Cantabile 3-6
Monokuro Kinderbook
Punch! 1
Yakitate! Japan 2
Beauty is the Beast 5
Godchild 3
...... etc etc.
Title: Re: Most Recent Manga Purchase
Post by: mouse on November 14, 2006, 07:00:43 AM
Ohnoooes.  :S

I hesitated purchasing Basilisk since there is an anime counterpart AND because I couldn't flip through it as it is sealed, but the cover/back art were calling to me.  Later today I'll start it and if I don't like it, well... I'll be pissed.  I hate buying manga in the first place.   >.<

Lol.  Even though I just said I hate buying manga, I completely understand.  When I was at the store(s) yesterday I found it so difficult to buy only one.   I went in looking to purchase only AFN and I ended up with it and two others.  Not to mention the two hours I spent just flipping through a bunch more.  It took an extreme amount of will power not to buy more.  And I'm not even an avid manga reader!  It's crazy!

MPD Psycho, which was just as twisted as I remembered it to be, reading it oh so long ago on my dying computer screen.

The first two volumes of Vampire Knight, which was exactly as light-angsty-fluffy as I anticipated it to be when I scooped it off the shelf.  A nice two-hour diversion without the least bit of meaningful emotional attachment.

Azumanga Daioh and Yotsuba$! are easy to spot.  Minami-ke 1-10 are a given. 

The series you have 4-10 of I can't place, though.  I can't transliterate enough Japanese characters to figure it out.

The series you have 4-10 of I can't place, though.  I can't transliterate enough Japanese characters to figure it out.

It's a reprint of Azumanga that was released as an anniversary limited edition with a few new strips, so I was pretty happy to buy it again. I've wanted Minami-ke for a while so I got all the volumes up the latest one while I had the chance.

The manga you couldn't name was Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to (http://mangafox.me/manga/mangaka_san_to_assistant_san_to/). It has been serializing for a while and the last volume just came out very recently. The English scanlations are as slow as a snail so I just went ahead and bought all the remaining volumes. I had 1-3 in the first place (just like how I had 1-10 of Yotsuba&!).

I feel kind of bad using what scarce money I have to expand my collection of Osamu Tezuka comics instead of buying a manga that's more obscure and in need of support here in the West, but eh, I've been meaning to read Princess Knight for a while. Heh, and funnily enough I didn't even realize that Twin Knight was about to be published when I went on to Amazon to purchase Princess Knight, so now I get to read the whole series in one go.

The Princess Knight volumes have really nice cover artwork too! It's also nice to see this edition of Twin Knight use the portrait-frame cover art that's common for the Japanese editions of Osamu Tezuka comics, though I usually prefer the more colorful and "modern" cover art that Western publishers create for them.

Finals week is a pain. I'm not sure if having this little gem sent in the middle of it made it better or worse:

CLAMP, why do you do this to me? More importantly, why am I letting you string me along anyways?
