Man, September? So long...what is that, 4 months only to get 4-5 chapters? Wow. Well, it'll be worth it if they do more back-story on Kousuke to give him more depth.

Most of the manga I'm reading, like Kotetsuko's Honto Yajuu, Kimi to Kore Kara AND Omairi Desu Yo, take forever to update. That's the problem with semi-monthly manga. She shouldn't be juggling so many on-going stories at once...she'll work herself to death *knocks on wood*.

All I'm reading now is Shingeki no Kyojin, which is losing my interest by the chapter. Everything else on my 'reading' list might as well go to the 'on-hold' because I haven't picked up some of those in months, if not, a year. But, I'm going to go buy "Yuuutsu na Asa" because my bookstore rarely has any BL, so hopefully that'll get me back into reading manga.

Just read the newest chapters! I'm so glad Kousuke is OK, and I'm starting to love the development with his relationship with Togo.

Kind of disappointed that the last two chapters are focusing on Oda. I mean, I like him and all, and am glad he's getting more back-story of sorts, but I am so done with the introduction of new characters. Since they're titled "Another Side", I wonder if everyone will get lights shone on their pasts? I'd love to know more about Kousuke, of course n-n

Yeah, I can understand that. Monthly chapters are the worst because I usually forget things, and I'm too lazy to go back and re-read it.

Same here. Other than Loveless (which I have every single volume, and have read them), I usually don't get around to my other manga. My BL "Awkward Silence" I have sitting there, but I've never actually opened it. Haven't read Black Butler either, but I've got the first 3 volumes. Uraboku, too. lol They're just pretty to look at. I also buy 'em to support the authors.

SnazzGary | 05-07-15, 7:11 AM
Man, those waits sure are long. I guess it is a bit easier to wait for the full volume to come out and read it all right then and there, instead of waiting each month for a new chapter.


SnazzGary | 05-07-15, 6:31 AM
Thanks! And gosh, I can't wait for it! Already waited about 3 months, but I guess I've gota wait just a bit longer, LOL

Thanks again, for always replying~

SnazzGary | 05-07-15, 4:38 AM
I'm back! lol Any word om Btooom! yet?

So I ended up reading Nobunagun 35 and I think the app works pretty well. Do you need a Japanese iTunes account to buy stuff? I haven't run into anything yet that would require me to purchase. I've never set a Japanese iTunes account before because they make it an absolute pain in the ass for foreigners.

earth star iphone app is out! I just downloaded it through a qr reader. Haven't actually messed with it yet, but wanted to let you know.

SnackaryBinx | 03-16-15, 6:23 PM
Hahahaha, we are men of many tastes I guess! I guess after seeing bodies cut up and disassembled, we need some eye bleach to center us back to normal. Time to reread all of One Week Friends to prepare for the final volume.

SnackaryBinx | 03-16-15, 2:53 PM
I can't wait to get my copy! I have to wait for the Akatsuki no Yona 17 preorders to come in before my copy ships. I'll probably read through it right away, I read the first volume in a little over an hour. Excited for chapter nine now.

I would love to wait for a series to complete, but I know I personally can't hold back at all haha. I have a harder time finding finished projects versus ones that are currently running. I try and buy a copy of a finished project to see if I can find something I like, they're not that deep on my hunting list. Not like I need more projects to read.

I'm trying to read a chapter of Monogatari everyday. It took me like 80 minutes to read a chapter yesterday, 4 to 5 minutes per page. Insanity!

SnackaryBinx | 03-09-15, 7:11 PM
One day! One day. I have the translated version of The Crimson Labyrinth that I've been meaning to go through as well. Just another book haha.

I think that YuriKuma would've done fine as a 6 episode OVA, maybe. I'll leave it until the ending to have my final opinion of it. I'm not sure where it's going to end now with that whole "bear called desire" business in the Door of Friends. Weird scene. Great scene. Maybe I do like the show a bit haha. Music is pretty on point though. I think this season has a lot of great OPs and EDs, a lot more than I usually like at least.

I imagine the Shinsekai Yori books are a lot like the anime. Honestly that style of story with a confusing plot unraveled throughout the story, along with a great balance of character development and a moving story: that's just my kind of story from start to end. Definitely seems like my style, but Kishi Yusuke is such a great writer. I have some of his other horror works as well, and stuff goes over my head usually. It'll just sit on the shelf until I'm prepared.

I do really like the style of Yuri Kuma, but I feel like this could've been 6 episodes long if they didn't have to constantly recap (and redo) everything to the point of insanity. Like, shows like The Tatami Galaxy took doing the same thing to fantastic heights, and I feel like Yuri Kuma is going for the same thing and falters.

Hm, I'm not talking to as many random outsiders I as you are I guess. Everyone I talk to is pretty deeply rooted in the underground punk/hardcore scene there, so they seem to be some what aware of me even before I talk to them (not many people from the US that want to release Japanese music). Once I get less 上手ね!s I'll feel like I made a lot of progress haha, but only until then. I'm a lot more focused on reading fluency before speaking and writing right now though.

I'm not sure how long it would take me to get to my English reading speed, I'm a really fast reader.It's taking me like 45 minutes to an hour right now to read a chapter of Monogatari. Hoping to see that get quicker and quicker as I move on.

Pardon me if I've asked this already, have you read Shinsekai Yori before? If so, how would you compare it difficulty wise to Monogatari? I have all 3 volumes of Shinsekai Yori, and being able to read it all the way is one of my major goals in learning Japanese.

Also, are you watching Yuri Kuma Arashi? How do you like it so far? I can't tell if the repetition of everything is way overboard or not.

Those monologues are gonna murder me, guess I'll just have to wait and see. I can't imagine reading a full Monogatari book in a weekend, that's just some shit right there. The fastest I've ever done is an hour and a half for a volume of manga, but I didn't even realize the time, I was just super into it.

I'll have to look for that although I imagine I'll see a lot of it as push further in.

Some people in Japan tell me that my Japanese tells them more about English than their Japanese which means I am not fluent
That's actually pretty cool. I mean, they still understand you and everything probably, so I would rather my Japanese be at a level like that instead of pure fluency. I'm fine with seeing things a little bit differently, usually puts a nice spin on everything that you wouldn't think about otherwise.

I don't know if you want to mention to anime to her especially after Pupa; might be hard subject for her to take in after that "thing."

I've never thought about how I look at the language differently compared to native speakers. I don't know where to start thinking about that either haha, seems like such a loaded thing to think about. How quickly do you burn through a Monogatari book? I imagine I'm going to be spending a long time on this one, since it took me like 20 minutes to read the first chapter. (SO MANY WORDS TO LOOK UP)
