Millefeui, vol 0

image

My first Book Walker purchase. Hell, my first digital purchase! I gotta thank Itsuma Tenma no Kuro Usagi and dicking around on bakaupdates for finding this little jewel ~I’m always down for trying new things :3 Especially if said things are shiny <3

I’ll be frank – I know next to nothing about Millefeui. I didn’t even know it existed until I began snooping around on google. From what I could find, the magazine started last year and has about four volumes out. All four volumes are available to purchase on comicwalker for $1.99/per magazine (at least that’s what iTunes charged me when I bought issue 0)

The tag line for issue 0 reads “the birth of (a magazine filled with) vocaloid comics x shojo comics.” So this is basically a girly version of Comic@loid with some Hana to Yume in it and it doesn’t star just Gumi for like everything haha.

Lala, Issue 3 2014

takeshi2Nothing much to blog about this issue…honestly I only really blogged in detail about Last Game’s chapter and Human System chapter 2. However, the reason for the great bulk in this post is due to Human System. It was so ridiculous that I ended up writing a full Tid-Bits like summary on it. I just…well, you’ll see. So many face-palming moments. I’m glad I read the Lala magazine because I would have cried had I bought the tank owo; The execution and pacing is so asinine that those with no Japanese understanding will be on equal footing with those that do understand Japanese – basically, no one will have any idea what’s going on haha.

Job Fortune Telling ~

muisbrotherRemember when I had that plan to do one translation project a month? Yeah…I forgot about that one too ~ Well, let’s not look at the failings of the past but rather on the successes in the future (translation: I did a thing finally so let’s just focus on that hur hur). I never really paid any attention to this section in the past but in each volume of Lala is a horoscope voodoo thing. In the Feb issue was a future job predictor. I thought it’d be cool to try out to see what my predicted job should have been. Then I figured, hey why keep this to myself? Sharing is caring after all ~

Rapunzel and the Five Princes

icon2Bought this last week during a random Book-Off visit. Happy to report that I finally found the josei section. For some odd reason, it’s comingled with the yaoi section…because that totally makes sense owo I also found out that this is where the Sylph manga is haha. Welp, that explains why my prior searches always proved fruitless! I never look at the yaoi section.

I must thank the random person standing over by the shojo section for why I’d even be in the BL section. I was trying to stall for time since where she was where I wanted to go. As I randomly pulled out volumes to pass the time (I was playing the game: “which uke has the most “noes please stop senpai” look on his face”), my eye caught Sylph stuff. Me: WTF!? Further digging found Wings manga and Asuka manga. Me: djflasjf;laj!!!

Glad to know josei does exist at Book-Off haha

Bon Appetit

takeshi(wrote this post like two weeks ago but I’m too lazy to update the intro part so…enjoy hur hur)

This past Friday I made a stop at Kino to pick up some mags and buy a friend’s b-day present. Because it’s Kino, you have to go and look at the manga. I mean, come on. Not doing so is like going into Barnes and Nobles just for coffee. Who does that???

I saw several new volumes of series I’m following but unfortunately, now wasn’t the time to be shelling money out on several tanks of manga T—T (I had spent $$ on a new suit and warm as a baby pig’s ass socks from Uniqlo). My goal was simple – find a single volume shojo series to read. Nothing fantasy or sci-fi crazy. Straight forward, shojo business. That ends with the volume it starts in.

So why Bon Appetit? I won’t lie, the cover was nice but it didn’t sell me. I wasn’t really looking for a cooking shojo. But as I was reading the back, a picture on the obi/wrap around caught my attention, hard. It was crazy enough that I paid 7 dollars to figure out wtf was going on:

uh

JUST WHAT KIND OF COOKING SHOJO IS THIS!?

Tid-Bits: Veil by Sakuma Ren (Hana to Yume Online)

Not sure if I mentioned this but I got an ipad Air for Christmas :D This makes reading things hella convenient. Not hatin’ on my phone but it’s not meant for comfortable readings. When I can read a whole page without having to zoom in or move about, it makes the experience so much better ~ Today I present to you a read I just finished on the Hana to Yume Online site :3 It’s called Veil ~

(the reason why I mentioned the ipad present – the pictures I took were screenshots so you get to enjoy seeing my battery life in the upper corner :P)
