Yen Plus issue 5

11 12 2008

Yes, the item mentioned in the title is out, and I guess it has been for a while. Yen Plus issue 5, that is. I just got my copy from the DHL delivery service (it has been lying since the eigth of December, just waiting for me to pick it up – I’M SORRY YEN PLUS! I’ll never abandon you again!), and I haven’t even finished issue 4 yet – and I still have lots of manga I haven’t had the time to read yet! Got several Naruto books left, unread in my bookcase (although, I have already read it all in other ways), the latest Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE volume, I, Otaku, and all the so far released volumes of D.Gray-man! Wonderful! This christmas will be the best, if I can only get my hands on a real cozy kotatsu! I probably won’t… :'<

The green Yen Plus logo. It's nice.

Hmm, it’s been a while since I posted anything non-news related, but I’ll try to post other stuff (like this and more interesting stuff) as well as continue keeping you updated on the latest news on Japanese popular culture!





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.





About my week(s).

21 09 2008

Well then, now I’ll write a little about what I probably should have written about in the previous post instead of all the manga I purchased.

As you know, I have been gone for two weeks, and even though I had to go without anime and stuff I still had a good time. You already know that I got my hands of lots more manga, so you know that I have had stuff to read and do while I were away, but most of the time I watched TV (a few more weeks and MTV will have succesfully brainwashed me) and spent time with my several new friends, especially with the ‘Cutest Girl’ I told you about in an earlier post.

On Monday nights we have movie night and we rent a movie and eat some snacks and so, and since I moved in we have rented a new movie almost every night …
We’ve seen movies like Superhero Movie , Forgetting Sarah Marshall , Knocked Up , Meet the Spartans (I just LOVE this movie, no matter how ridiculous it is! XD), Ping-pongkingen (as I always say about Swedish movies, worst crap ever – I hate Swedish movies except maybe one or two) and probably a few more that I can’t remember right now. We also tried, me and the Cutest Girl, to get The Eye with Jessica Alba, not that it matters, and some other horror flicks, but they won’t rent that … the bastards. ;_;

I have done a few more things but they aren’t stuff I see fit or interesting to talk about, but maybe some other time. Until then, pick up an issue of the new YEN PLUS magazine if you haven’t already and have a great time!

P.S. I still haven’t caught up with the anime I’ve missed these two weeks (almost 40 eps) and I will have to save up as I’m going back for at least another week in probably less than an hour, but I did get to watch Code Geass R2 episodes 22 and 23 and also episodes 100 and 101 of D.Gray-man (is it true D.Gray-man is going to end with 103 or a 104 episodes? :O) and I feel a little more at ease after the two week anime hiatus. I wonder if this eight week period is going to end with me hanging myself … なんちゃって

See you next time! じゃまたね

なんちゃって “nanchatte” – Just kidding!
じゃまたね “ja mata ne” – See you later!





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.
