Peach-Pit is back in action

19 01 2009

Peach-Pit, the great mangaka duo made up of Banri Sendo and Shibuko Ebara, is, as the title states, back in action since going on hiatus due to suddenly falling ill last month with Rozen Maiden, Shugo Chara! and Zombie-Loan continuing serialization in their respective magazines. I’m a huge fan of Peach-Pit and I’m really glad they’re not ill anymore and that their manga will be continued like they should. On their official website, the duo apologizes to all their fans and the people they have made worry and thanks all those who sent them “get well” messages and more. Don’t worry about it!

Fall 2008 anime schedule

6 01 2009

This is mostly for my own reference so I know which of the fall 2008 series I am going to watch to the end simultaneously as I watch some of the new winter 2009 season shows, but you are free to view it as well. After deciding to watch all the 40+ shows that started airing during late 2008, I had to go and couldn’t watch anime for several months and, of course, watching all of the shows was no longer an option, but now I hope I have made my final fall 2008 anime schedule. Sorry for bothering you with this, dear readers. ^^;

Vampire Knight Guilty
13 episodes

Yozakura Quartet
12 episodes

OK, that was quite a few still, but I guess it’s a lot easier to keep up with than these and 30 shows more. I did not include Kannagi since I have already finished it and Vampire Knight isn’t a 2008 fall season anime, even though I have to watch it before I can watch Vampire Knight Guilty. Several of the others shows I have watched one or two episodes of before I dropped it, but those aren’t listed here because they aren’t shows I am going to watch. Hope all of these are great!





Another week has gone.

26 09 2008

It certainly has, and it was a most fun one. :P
At least parts of it.

I don’t have that much to tell you about this week, but I’ll tell you what I do have. To tell you.
I, of course, brought home more manga and stuff home after this week: vol 1-13 of Bleach, would’ve had up to 14 if I hadn’t accidently bought two copies of vol 2; vol 1-4 of the kiddy shojo manga Shugo Chara!; vol 3-5 of the ever so awesome Fullmetal Alchemist; vol 4 of Sgt. Frog/Keroro Gunsou (or maybe I did that last week?); the first volume of the new Swedish manga called Kick Off!, just a little bit better than I thought it’d be (honestly, I though it’d be crap); vol 1-2 of REBORN!/Katekyo Hitman REBORN!; and hey, that’s not all! I also got a package (although by then I was already home) with vol 19 of Negima! and vol 1-4 Fairy Tail and the third and latest issue of YEN PLUS. Yeah, I’ve got lots of reading ahead of me, and with my not-old-at-all speakers have broken by not being used for a week (I mean, come on! Geez …) that’s a real good thing. Not that’d I wouldn’t’ve enjoyed it otherwise too. That’s not all, folks, I also did lots (and by lots I obivously mean almost nothing) of other, real fun stuff, mostly with the girl next door. ;)

Have it good folks (why the h*ll do I keep saying that!?), see you next time. Btw, I’m leaving again on Sunday. ^^

P.S. Since, as I told you already, my speakers won’t work as they should I can’t watch any anime right now. Do you know how depressing that is after a week of waiting for just that!? You probably do or don’t, I wouldn’t know.





Back for the weekend.

20 09 2008

Hi. I’m back for the weekend. :)
Is that good or bad news? I hope you find it good news, because I don’t like not being wanted. :3

However, now I’m done with that subject. Maybe I shouldn’t have named the post like that? Ah, who cares, let’s just see were this goes. ^^

I don’t currently live at home and haven’t been home for two whole weeks and have barely even been near a computer, but it has not all been bad, I did get my hand on manga for much money, that’s enough. I had written more than double of what is written from start to this sentence but I remembered that I had actually been to the place three times, not two, making all the stuff I had written rubbish. T_T
Anyway, I’ll try to write it more correctly this time, but probably not as detailed. And having that said, I will really make it even more detailed as I write. Well, let’s just wait/write and see. ^^

So, I went to the store in Gamla Stan (Old Town) called SF Bokhandeln (that’s the Science Fictions Bookstore, but they have lots of manga, anime and stuff as well as fantasy and sci-fi books and role-play games such as Warhammer and Dungeons & Druggies Dragons (I don’t know much about that stuff, really, I’m just there for the manga and japanese imports)) three times (not two! >.<) and got quite a lot of great stuff! Only manga, though … But that’s great!

On the first and second visit (can’t divide it, don’t remember) I got the two first and so far only issues of the new magazine YEN PLUS with eleven series (although it’s not all Japanese manga, it’s also Korean stuff that I don’t like as much) and a very complicated page number system (lol), Shonen Jump volume 8, issue 10 (the latest October issue that comes with a paper ANBU mask! :D), volumes one and two of Fullmetal Alchemist (although I’m pretty sure I have both already, somewhere in the mess that is my home), the fourth volume of Sgt. Frog/Sergeant Frog (“Keroro Gunsou” 「ケロロ軍曹」), volume seven of Welcome to the NHK (only one left now!), Death note vol 4 (now I have vol 1-4 in English, vol 1-4 in Swedish and also vol 2 in Japanese) and finally the eighth volume of Air Gear (I had a gap there between volumes 1-7 and 9). That’s probably all, otherwise I’m going senile or maybe I’m just very tired or maybe I have been drugged OMFGNOE! *tired*
Oh yeah, I also got the first volume of the new Code Geass manga.

On the third visit, earlier today before I came home for the weekend, I bought REBORN! (“Katekyo Hitman REBORN!” 家庭教師ヒットマンREBORN!) vol 1-2, even though I have not quite so legally already read past that point, but I wanted to have the volumes for real and wanted to support the author of one of the best mangas I’ve ever read (haven’t you read it? READ IT!), volumes one, two and three of Shugo Chara! (don’t mention that it’s a shojo and a children’s manga, it’s awesome!).

Man, I’m so tired I don’t even know if what I just wrote made any sense. I hope it did, of course, but to find that out you have to read the post and I’m too tired to read now … T_T
And yeah, if it’s just nonsense, I’m so sorry to have wasted you time. xD

EDIT: Oh yeah, I also got the first book of the The Wheel of Time series, The Eye of the World! That explains a lot, money-wise. Haven’t read more than the prologue and a few pages, but that’s because I’ve been too busy and tired. T_T
I’ll return when I’ve read more and give you my opinions about it. Maybe. If I remember. And I’ll also tell you all about my time at the other place when I have something interesting to tell you about it. :)

FINAL WORDS: I’ve had it, I won’t edit this post anymore. I have probably at least one or two things I’ve forgot to write. I’m very tired. I don’t even remember what I’ve written anymore, so I’ll just leave it as it is now, add a few more tags and then I won’t care anymore. Good bye.
