RPG Goes to the Comic Book Store (April 08, 2015)

mangaI splurged a bit this time. Part of it was there was so many good things in my reserve box I couldn’t make an easy decision. Another part was there was so many good things in my reserve box that I needed to clear the damn thing out a bit.

HAGANAI Vol 10

I uh…haven’t had time to read it yet. I’ve been busy.

But it’s the tenth volume I’ve bought, so clearly I don’t hate the series!

YAMADA-KUN AND THE SEVEN WITCHES Vol 1

Just in time for the anime to start airing, which Wisedog told me he already dropped .

Huh.

I enjoyed the first volume. I’ve already read a good deal of this series though, so not too many surprises yet. Instead of reading scanlations I’m going to keep up with the English release and read it as it comes out.

ONE PIECE Vol 74

I love this arc. Some people hate how long it’s gone on for, but I don’t think it’s overstayed its welcome yet.

In typical One Piece style, the various storylines of the arc are all running at the same time, and things are quite chaotic. The Tontatta portion is probably the most interesting right now, but that appears to be wrapping up with that wonderful teasing ending. Can’t wait for Vol 75.

This might be the arc with the absolute highest number of named characters. So many different faces, and a lot of them are brand new.

FOOD WARS Vol 1-2

Had to pick up both volumes to start myself on this. Glad I did. There’s more in my hold box, so I’ll have to get a more next time.

I thought about trying to make some of the food in this, but my cooking ability level caps at microwaving Hot Pockets.

Those reaction faces to tasting the food are hilarious.

ARPEGGIO OF BLUE STEEL Vol 4

So we start of with Zordan Stark introducing himself, and firmly establishing forever that he can’t not be a dick at all times. I can’t wait for this guy to get trashed, but I worry what would happen to u-2501 when it does happen.

Anyway, that ends quickly enough, and we get a delicious volume heavy on Takao being the best boat. Seriously, she even made a body pillow of Gunzou. Hyuuga was also finally shown in person, and completely amazing. And running parallel, we have the super emotional plotline for Makie and Haruna going on.

I need more of this series as quickly as possible.
