Emerald Ciel Spring 2015 Issue (Driblet)

sign

One more mag release for the week ~ Then I’m going back to drowning myself in some Kingdom Hearts ~ (I’ve only got one more day of relaxation before it’s back to the study grind!). Random blah but I’m playing the game on super easy and have nearly gotten my ass handed to me several times. I have to be thankful they go after Donald instead of me so I can hide in the corner and snipe with magic :P At first I thought my skills had gone to crap since my first play-through on it via the PS2, but it was during the Wonderland episode that I realized shit wasn’t adding up. A look online confirmed that yes, the difficulty had been beefed so “easy” on 1.5 was harder than “normal” of the original release.

wtf, I thought this was a kid’s game!? Why make it more difficult!? (I still remember the kid I babysat once couldn’t even get passed the tutorial mode on easy of Kingdom Hearts – who are you targeting Disney and Square Enix, because it’s obviously not children!).

While I’m playing the game, I’m reading the light novel released by Yen Press. It’s interesting to see the little differences between the two. They help fill in little games in the other ~

Nerding out on KH done, let’s get to Emerald!

Koi-Suru Harinezumi #3

Continuing where the 2nd volume left off, Rabbit has made no progress with Hedgehog. She has been laid up in bed with a fever so she hasn’t been able to tell Hedgehog to have several seats. Nor has she spoken with Fox who confessed his feels for her right before sickness took her out (that was the cock he was swinging before her, blocking her search for Hedgehog. Forgot to mention that in the last mini post).
Despite her sickness, Rabbit goes to what’s her face’s wedding (shit I’m just going to call her Kangaroo). There, Hedgehog ignores her, leaving no competition for Fox to come in and swoop her away. However, in mid swooping, Rabbit starts to get lightheaded and in comes Hedgehog. He takes her away to rest. She asks wtf and he’s like, go the fuck to sleep.

Betsuma June 2015 (Driblet)

DSC_03042

Oh gawd, took big test #1 and somehow made it. Have some stuff I have to fix (so it’s like I have to take test 1.5) and pass so I don’t get demoted lol great encouragement. Then it’ll be on to big test #2. My brain…I’ve forgotten what a life is anymore…

Anyway, to celebrate getting through hurdle #1, here is a post that I wrote up a while ago but never got around to hitting that “publish” button :P This is something a bit different from the usual.

Little back story: After reading Emerald (I’ll get to posting that one day), I pondered to myself over the gentle caresses of the air conditioning (damn summer is coming) why I seem to read Emerald lickity split but other mags I tend to drag my feet on. As my hair whipped in the artificial wind, I finally got it: it’s because Emerald is a light read. There’s nothing hardcore about it. No government takeover plots, no evil coming to destroy the world, or long winded discussions about JUJUBI (who the fuck knows what/who/where that is). I didn’t need my dictionary out to enjoy the plot and when I did have to whip it out, it wasn’t that often. And lastly, I like the focus on relationships. Thinking back to the mags I’m currently reading, almost all of them are not relationship focused at all. It’s got all the fantasies and steampunk and whatever but they just barely touch on the relationship bit (unless it’s incesty *side-eyes Comic It and Ane Lala).

Now don’t get me wrong, I love the mags I get, otherwise I wouldn’t be buying them lol. But I could tell I wanted some shojo in my life. Not light shojo, like Sylph or Ane Lala. I’m talking the works – shojo sparkles, roses, and tears up to my asshole.

That mystery solved, the next step was to figure out what shojo mag I wanted. The bad thing with a lot of shojo mags is that content wise, they tend to have majority never ending series so it’s hard to just jump in. I tilt my head in Lala’s direction for this. After some thinking, I figured I might as well grab something from Margaret since I’ve been enjoying a bunch of their titles recently. Now, I didn’t know Margaret was like Hana to Yume, in that you have Margaret (bi-weekly), Betsuma (monthly), The Margaret (bi monthly), and Betsuma Sister (Quarterly?). After wrapping my head around the different titles, I bought myself one issue of Betsuma and one issue of Margaret to decide which of the two I wanted to possible collect.

In the end, I chose Betsuma because it has more titles I’m reading and also it’s not bi-weekly. I can barely keep up with a monthly magazine so why torture myself with a bi-weekly lol

Here is a little summary on the issue I bought:

Update

Ugh, I can’t feel my legs. We’ve been whipped so crazy these past weeks that I can barely sit let alone move.

That said, I’ll be putting Spoils on a semi-hiatus for a bit. Training is about to get real here in a few weeks (screw us being behind. We’re taking these tests next week, even if we don’t have the materials back to study with lol). No mag posts or summaries until August or September when hopefully things calm down and all my tests have been passed (*fingers crossed!*). One day, I’ll get to Shiro Ari and Shounen Princess, guys! Honestly!

I’ll post some random things though to keep this blog slightly alive. But really short posts, like maybe a little blurp on something I read or bought.
Or I might have just farted out hot air in that last sentence and won’t post shit until August haha (look at my track record thus far :P). It all depends on how things progress from here ~

Hope you all get to enjoy your summer vacations. Mine will be spent in stress and tears, but hopefully ending in tears of joy and lots of whoops!

Koi-Suru Harinezumi #2

The beginning had me a bit pissed off with “not even worth the time to remember her name” walking in and trying to cute woo her self into Hedgehog’s pants during some random school field trip. I puffed up so much when she stole the credit for finding the phone Hedgehog lost – when Rabbit was the one who did the effort and got the battle scars to prove it. I had to stop reading a few seconds to calm my crazy ass. Thankfully, new third wheel Fox is technologically dumb and took a picture of Rabbit giving the phone to him to return (oh we’ll talk about that little shit later). Hedgehog finds this and tells the girl to get her shojo trash out of here.

Things were cute until Fox decided it’s his turn to make some waves and does so with his cock. Turns out he’s the younger brother cousin (hur brain fart – thanks renxkyoko! ^^) of what’s her face’s fiancée (love how I don’t remember anyone’s names lol – the lady with the baby, the one that Hedgehog wants to bone…or used to). And let me tell, the way he plays his games to get Rabbit and Hedgehog apart…. All I could think was “You sly motherfucker.”

I’m worried for these two now. Fox got into Hedgehog’s head. Hedgehog is so worried about his thug face bringing misfortune to Rabbit that he’s trying to push her away but he’s not communicating and Rabbit is confused and hurt over this. But I have to give props to Rabbit for trying to figure out what’s wrong. Poor girl has a huge cock Fox has lying in her path to block her but she’s already got the hiking gear ready to get climb over.

The last chapter is a one shot of Hedgehog when he was younger and met that chick he likes. Honestly I didn’t see any kind of romance for her from him. If anything, it was like a brother x sister relationship in my eyes. It was interesting to see how he tried to better himself due to his meeting with her tho ~

I’m still enjoying the series, love rivals aside. Let’s hope Hedgehog gets his shit together in tank 3 because come on, bro.

Poison x Family

Man, I feel like I barely have time to wipe my butt :T
Anyway, small update this week. Blame the food poisoning.
Word of advice: don’t go for the egg salad sandwich. It’s not worth it :(

(only good thing that came out of that episode was that I started watching Hunter x Hunter. It was on Netflix and it was so engaging that I forgot my agonizing pain…until the end credits came)

(ps. love that my coworkers told me I need to man up my gut haha (where’s my sympathy!). My poor country stomach is still no match for these city germs!)

Also, I won’t be updating next week because I have relatives mooching visiting this weekend… Amazing how family suddenly remembers me now that I’m in the big city… >___>;

I’ll be finishing my catch up of Zero-Sum with the June issue and then I’ll start tackling Sylphs.

And I guess I’ll end this post by saying I saw a man chewing on a stick during my morning commute. I was close enough that I knew that shit wasn’t a cigar, slim jim, or any sort of food product. It was a damn tree appendage O__o;
Either this dude has a really bad smoking habit and needs something to suck on while he waits until he can go out and smoke (and apparently this stick was the only thing he had on him), or he’s some sort of mystical animal species and that’s his food source. Either way, it was an interesting start to the work week haha!

Man doodling with the mouse is hard :U

Hello all!

Again I disappeared haha. I meant to post an update but hur ~ I had family visiting. Then I got sick. Then I had training stuff. Then I worked the weekend. Then I worked another weekend. And now we’re here ~ Needless to say I didn’t do diddle squat for Spoils :P

I’m probably going to be at this glacierous pace for a while, what with training now invading my personal space. Makes me feel like I’m back in school again! Only I’ve got rockets attached to my butt because that’s how fast we’re going D: Needless to say I’ll be doing a lot of OT with some textbooks and whatnot (like I did today).

My game plan is to catch up with my mags. Shortly following this post will be three mag posts – the April issue of Comic Sylph, the March issue of Zero-Sum, and vol.2 of Comic It. The April issue of Zero-Sum will have to wait to next week. I’m currently reading the May issues of both so they’ll be up someday along with Ane Lala. Then I hit the May issues (I just got my Sylph issue from Kino. I haven’t seen Bookwalker update with Zero-Sum so nothing on that end. I got the Spring issue of Emerald. Also I need to order newest issues of Comic It and Ane Lala ~).

I’m currently/slowly reading Shiro Ari tank #6 so I’ll get to posting part I probably after I get to the May mags ~

I decided to group together the Shounen Oujos before I make a post about them. Once I get Comic It #3, I’ll have three chapters which I think will be a good number to summarize. The reason for this is cuz when I read the first chapter in Comic It, it was literally 10 pages of nothing followed by not really stuff and then ending with doing something (I could have summarized the whole thing in 2 paragraphs haha) so rather than have small posts, I figured I’d give Oujo the same treatment I do with my tank posts :3 (also time reasons ~)

After that…we’ll see. One step at a time. I’ve got a list of series I promised to summarize – I didn’t forget! :3 – but I don’t have the same amount of time I used to (which wasn’t much even then) so don’t expect anything any time soon ~

Thanks for all the comments, my ducklings! I haven’t gotten back to replying but know I appreciate all of them ~ <3

And with that…

Oh! Who here is excited for Yen Press’s license of Akaya Akashiya Ayakashi no?? :D I had a feeling it was going to be picked up but I couldn’t tell who would grab it first. My guess was on Seven Seas since they’ve got 4 Gene titles under their belt (Dictatorial Grimoire, I am Alice, Servamp, and Orenchi no Furo Jijou) or possible One Peace Books (since they’ve got Aquarion Evol, Black Bard, and Flowers for Chronus (not sure what happened with Chronus as its release date has passed but nothing was actually released)). Yen Press was a possible third since they have the manga version of Kagerou Daze but that was it. Smack me over the head with a bag of barley and call me Stumpson when I saw that announcement :D Definitely will be a day one buy for me ~ I mean, look at that cover!

And with that, I bid you all good night :3

Sorry for the cruddy pictures you all are about to experience. My camera needed charging and it’s already been 2 months for this issue so I made the executive decision to use my camera phone (and very small picture size :P)
