(though really, I love my work. Because I’m able to read my LNs while I wait for the computer to do its thing ~ that’s how I got through Book Girl and Spice and Wolf so fast. Lol to my boss thinking they were trashy novels! Double LOL when he said this just as I got to the part where a dude was digging up a corpse xD Because that’s totally slutty material yo)
Eastern and Western Japan have split apart and formed two separate warring nations. In this “idiot adult’s world,” many issues press on society. Gods of the world, especially the tengu, influenced the start and end of the events that lead to the split and war. Because of that, tengu Mozuku wants to end this idiotic war that the adults started. With his older twin brother, Shinonome, he meets with the God of the West, Sai.
Also included in this volume is a second story, Zanouka, about the former incarnations of Mozuku and Shinonome.
Interesting but confusing. Sad that the company releasing this in English is dead and also the series in Japan has been on hiatus for a while :<
Blue Exorcist/Ao no Exorcist #1
Raised by Father Fujimoto, a famous exorcist, Rin Okumura never knew his real father. One day a fateful argument with Father Fujimoto forces Rin to face a terrible truth: the blood of the demon lord Satan runs in Rin’s veins! Rin swears to defeat Satan, but doing that means entering the mysterious True Cross Academy and becoming an exorcist himself. Can Rin fight demons and keep his infernal bloodline a secret? It won’t be easy, especially when drawing his father’s sword releases the demonic power within him!
DO LIKE! Maybe it was because the first time I read this series, it was via scanalations and I couldn’t tell wtf was going on in chapter 1 so I gave up (didn’t help the picture quality was low and the translations were hard to understand ^^; – but it all worked out in the end because I bought the volume lol). Rin is adorable ~ looking forward to buying #2 :3
Record of a Fallen Vampire #1
Thousands of years ago, Vampire King Akabara Rosered Strauss lost both his kingdom and his queen. Since humans were unable to kill the queen, they sealed her away, erecting thousands of fake seals so that the king would never find her true location. Despite being pursued by relentless vampires, Akabara continues to search for his queen to this day…
Akabara’s quest takes a sinister turn when an entity called the Black Swan appears. The Black Swan inhabits the body of a young human girl every 50 years, giving her the power to destroy the Vampire King and his queen. With each incarnation the Black Swan grows stronger – will the 49th Black Swan mean the end of Akabara?
Bit confusing but after reading some reviews, I’m going to stick with this series because it’s around volume #3 or #4 that the story really picks up and gets addicting :3
Pick of the Litter #2
Satsuki pays an unexpected visit to Riku at his school. His mission: deliver a family picture to Riku and investigate what rival store Echigoya is doing in Japan. Meanwhile, for Riku’s birthday, Ichiya shows Riku his old room, before he disappeared. But is it really his room? And if not, what is Ichiya trying to hide? A trip down memory lane promises to bring Riku closer to the truth about his long-lost family!
Cute art but that’s all this manga has going for it xD Is it sad that I liked the one shot at the end better than the series thus far? :P
Book Girl and the Famished Spirit (#2)
Life in the literary club has settled into a predictable – if unusual – routine. Junior member Konoha Inoue dutifully writes short stories for his club president, Tohko Amano, who subsequently shreds them and devours each morsel like the book-eating goblin she is. When the club begins receiving cryptic messages, though, routine goes out the window as Tohko sets out to find the culprit with Konoha in tow!
When their investigation suggests that a tormented spirit might be stalking the school halls, matters quickly take an ominous turn. Is it possible that ghosts really exist, or is there something even more disturbing at play?
Another good volume in the series. I always think SWEET I FIGURED OUT THE END but then when the end does come, I’m like, DAMN DID NOT SEE THAT COMING D:
Side rant but I really want to know more about Miu! Quit teasing us book!
Kieli #3: Prisoners Bound For Another Planet
Kieli and Harvey have settled into a normal life in a small town… at least, as normal as life gets for a girl who can see ghosts and an immortal soldier. But when a face from Harvey’s past surfaces, just how long can they hold on to the comfortable existence that they have carved out for themselves? Does Harvey even want to hold on to it?
The shocking conclusion to this third installment of the Kieli series will change everything for this pair of unlikely companions!
Harvey Angst wasn’t that bad this time around! Volume #3 was actually really good and restored my interest in the series again ヽ(´ー｀)ﾉ
(I was originally turned off the series when I read #2 which was just painful for me – damn Harvey Angst)
Cliffhanger at the end makes me happy I got #4 (I may have been turned off the series but I wanted to support Yen Press’s light novel line ^^ – thus the reason I have #4)
Spice and Wolf #3
Having narrowly escaped financial ruin, Lawrence turns his attention to helping Holo find her ancient homeland in the North. But how long can a traveling merchant afford to wander the countryside looking for a village that he suspects may have ceased to exist long ago? When a rival merchant sets his sights on Lawrence’s beautiful companion, though, can Lawrence truly be confident that Holo will remain by his side? Has the time come when Lawrence must ask himself whether his relationship with the Wisewolf is business or pleasure?
LOVE LOVE LOVED! Each volume just gets better and better <3 Liked how #3 was like a shojo drama with economy mixed in xD Need to order #4 here soon!
And this is it ~
