September 2011 Manga Purchases
Here’s the list of the manga purchases I made this month.
English Language Books:
- Skip Beat, Volume 25 — This volume covers the bulk of the Valentine’s Day arc. Both Sho and Ren sorta do battle in the wake of Kyoko giving Reino Valentine’s Day hate chocolates. I noticed a little bit of sloppiness in the image editing and the English adaptation (the script needed more massaging), but overall it was clearer than what’s available in scanlation. I really liked this volume a lot! 5/5
- Kamisama Kiss, Volume 5 — I’ve only read the first half. So far it’s very cute.
- Sakura Hime: The Legend of Princess Sakura Volume 3
- Sailor Moon, Volume 1: I couldn’t get past chapter 1. Honestly, this manga is pretty bad and I bought it because of nostalgia for childhood. I have rose colored memories of watching the anime series when I was a teenager. Anyhow, this is great for readers who are 8 – 12 years old. It’s very juvenile. I’m happy the series is being reissued, but…at the same time, I’d say that this manga is dated. 1/5
- Animal Land Volume 1
- Library Wars Volume 6 — I can’t get enough of Dojo! 4/5
- Dengeki Daisy Volume 6
- Butterflies and Flowers Volume 8 — I still haven’t brought myself to read volume 7 yet. I thing I’m burnt out on the series. I will be selling off the books soon, so if you want a full set of this series, watch out for when I put them up for sale.
- Oresama Teacher Volume 4 — This series is growing on me. I’m now totally okay with the very slow pace of the romance in this series.
- Black Bird Volume 10 — ureshii *0* 5/5
Viz iPad App Purchases:
- Natsume’s Book of Friend Volume 8
- Five Leaves Volume 2
Japanese Language Books:
- Kemono Kingdom: Zoo Volume 1
- Yuurei Apaato Kanrinin Volume 2
