I got 14, 15, 19, 21, 23, 24.
I'm missing 5 volumes!
Now I have to go to Book Off to buy the missing parts.
Hmm, this blog is supposed to be about manga I like that Company B won't license... not what I'm currently reading.
I got the latest issue of Kaze Hikaru (currently being released by Company V), but I like to hold off reading that series... because Okita Souji is eventually going to die! I know my Japanese history. And I feel like it's getting closer and closer... so I like to make other people (= my sister) read it before I read it.
Maybe I'll write about young women manga Real Clothes over the weekend. It's already on volume 4, but I'll start w/ my review of vol 1.
Lately I haven't been reading a lot of manga.
Well, the only thing I've been reading regularly is 20th Century Boys. And to keep it as exciting as possible, I've been ordering one volume at a time. The books arrive every other week, and I'm on volume 13.
But couple of weeks ago, I had to order the rest of the volumes. So vol 14 - 24.
Because our direct ordering thru a Japanese distributor is going to stop after June. It's a long, complicated story that I don't want to get into... so let's keep it as 大人の事情. There never seems to be a good translation for that.
So I have to go back to buying manga from Kinokuniya again. Or BookOff, if it's an older series.
Maybe I should go work for a place that'll send me to Japan every month.
October 2007 manga I'm ordering...
Houkago Hokenshitsu vol 9
Is this the last volume? I usually forget what's happening whenever a new volume comes out, so I have to re-read all the previous books. There isn't a whole lot of text, so it doesn't take me too long to re-read. I'm a slow manga reader, so that's one thing I'm always happy about.
Himawari Ken'ichi Legend vol 5
I like the stories that revolve around Ken'ichi #2 (the gardener). Why does this book come out so quickly? Is it because it runs on a weekly magazine?
Kisekae Yuka-chan vol 11
I stopped getting Cookie monthly, so all the stories are new to me.
Kira Kira 100% vol 5
It's getting a bit young for my tastes. I'm just continuing, since I already started.
Ice Age vol 8
Yay! I stopped getting Chorus monthly too, so I'm really looking forward to this volume.
Omukae Made 8-Jikan vol 2
Yoko Gendai finally has a new book out! I support manga artists who only earn about an normal salary.
Ren'ai Catalog vol 34
Also getting a bit too young, but I already have the rest of the series...
Shanimuni Go vol 27
IH starts! I have to re-read all 26 volumes and get pumped up for this volume. Kyaa!
Detective Conan vol 59
I heard that Gosho Aoyama is taking a break for a while. I keep skipping volumes when I order Conan. And I have a lot of doubles too. What to do?
October is a pretty good month.
