Kisekae Yuka-chan vol 11
2007.11.04. (Sun) | Edit |
I got a bunch of special order manga in this week.
So after spending a whole week reading all of them, I realized I left this blog alone too long.

One of the last books I read in this pile is Kisekae Yuka-chan (きせかえユカちゃん) vol 11. The reason I'm writing about the last book is because.. it's the most recent read. When you get older, you tend to forget what you read a while back. Komatta ne~

This volume of Kisekae Yuka-chan featured Midori-chan a lot. Her mom is expecting a baby, plus there was a lot of fashion-y topics (which is good, since the last couple of volumes talked about making manga, making movies... a lot of Yuka-mom's hobbies).

BUT the main thing of this volume is Yumi going to study abroad in Belgium & how Shige tells her at the airport that he still likes her and will wait for her in Japan.

Oh, the one-shot manga, Glass no Ringo (硝子のリンゴ) was cute too. It's about a girl who failed her college entrance exam & was dumped by her boyfriend. But she meets a smart but unlucky boy through the 予備校 (prep school). They're not dating yet, but he helps her get back at her ex-b/f. きもちいいー、ね (feels good).

I really like Akiko Higashimura's short stories.

Cat Street vol 6

I'm six months behind writing this review.
I didn't feel like writing it, because this volume just felt like a transition volume & I needed to read the next volume to get motivation to write about it.

The four main characters more or less graduate from El Liston. Rei heads overseas to try soccer again. Koichi had already started his software company. Kate re-starts her acting career. And Momiji doesn't really have a reason to stay there anymore.

By the end of the volume, three years pass by & Kate and Koichi bump into each other.

Anyhoo, nothing too significant happens in the volume, which is why I didn't feel like writing. For those who were waiting, sorry for the late synopsis. I finally have some time this weekend (from being sick), so thus the post.
