I went to Barnes and Nobles today. I got distracted alot by my cousins, i didn't read alot as i usually do. I bought Wild Ones vol 1, Blank Slate vol 1, and Shinkuro vol 7. I only had money for 2 mangas, but I was lucky that they had a sale for selected mangas. BD
I always do big orders at once, so some highlights are..
-- Lots of Axis Powers Hetalia doujinshi (I typically don’t buy dj at all, but I can’t resist Alfred x Arthur!)
-- Olimpos by Aki (Gorgeous!)
-- Several Comic Blade Avarus manga (crookclock, flat, Houou Gakuen Misoragumi, Angetsuyakou)
-- A couple of otome game manga adaptations (Otometeki Koi Kakumei Rabu Rebo!!, drastic killer, Hiiro no Kakera)
-- Two reprint collections from CJMichalski (Kamisama, Onegai!!, Ikemasen, Oujisama!!)
-- @Full Moon 1 by Matou Sanami
-- Baroque 1 by Ueda Shinshu (need 2 and 3 still :( )
-- Kuroshitsuji 5 by Toboso Yana
-- 101 Hitome no Alice by Kawai Chigusa
The last trip I had to Borders and Barnes & Nobles a couple weeks ago resulted in purchasing .hack//XXXX 2 and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle 15-18.
Boy, was I happy to get the latter series' volumes. Very cool plot point in there.
Also, if doujinshi counts, I just recently got a .hack//G.U. one in. Some really cute Shino x Haseo stuff~
Every week I buy the next volume of Kare Kano so that is a constant. but I did order the Haruhi Novel it was released in english very recently, but the silly place I ordered it from got the manga instead so i now have that as well.
I picked up Faust and the Phoenix Wright Casebook a few days ago.
I had seen Faust around before, but was never compelled to pick it up. Then I noticed Nasu Kinoko had something to do with it, and couldn't stop myself from buying. I've only begun reading it, but I'm really liking the writing so far. Might be a good way to be exposed to some really excellent writers...
The Phoenix Wright Casebook was about what I was expecting. It's really nice to see a collection of amateur stories being published in the U.S. It wasn't exactly great; none of the stories were breathtaking. But it was very interesting to read; a novelty sort of. Either way, I don't regret the purchase.
