    Emanon Volume 1 Review

    First of all you've managed to misgender me, which isn't a huge issue but for future reference I am female so she/her/etc, but I guess it's not obvious unless you read my on-site bio so fair enough there. Here at AUKN we all take our job incredibly seriously and research all of our articles. I...

    The Anime/Manga I Bought Today Was...

    Blood Blockade Battlefront volumes 9 & 10. Didn't realise that Dark Horse had actually finished this, but spotted them on Amazon both in-stock and on sale. Volume 8 and below is OOP (again), so figured it was worth jumping on before these disappear too. At least now my collection will be complete.

    What manga are you reading now?

    Kino's Journey: The Beautiful World volume 2 Penguin Highway (novel, complete) Natsume's Book of Friends volume 2 Outbreak Company volume 9 (light novel) - Had a feeling this one was going to cliffhanger. Quite nice to see a change from the normal antics that we're witness to in the series.

    I’m ignoring the train wreck and off to the gym instead.

    Legal Streaming 2019: Q2 Spring Season

    That’s a pretty harsh delay, but I can certainly understand why they’ve gone that far for such a big show.

    What did you RECEIVE today? PHOTOS EDITION!

    @~AyaMachi~ Ahh Wolf Children is a real treat, I adore the story so much that I own the BD, Manga and soon the novel adaption... Honestly that manga release is one of my favourites in my collection too, it's so perfectly put together and it's nice just having the whole story there in one big...

    What did you BUY today?

    Picked up Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Edition volume 5 and Hitorijime My Hero volume 3 from book depository. Probably my final manga purchases for May, especially given how expensive FMA is. Worth every penny though,

    Emanon Volume 1 Review

    I treated it as a continuous series due to the fact the publisher, Dark Horse, labelled this entry as 'volume 1' and the next is down as volume 2, so to me that does imply the series will be continuous. At the very least I assumed they will be connected enough to judge them that way. There was a...

    What manga are you reading now?

    Volume 3 is going to be the make or break volume for me. I really enjoyed volume 1, but 2 leaned into a lot of stuff I didn't like, so 3 will be the deciding volume I think. There is some really good ideas in there, it's just hoping they're more of the focus.

    Emanon Volume 1 Review

    The mangaka behind Eisner-nominated series Wandering Island, Kenji Tsuruta, is back! Teaming up with the winner of the Nihon SF Taisho award, Shinji Kajio, the two have created Emanon. The manga promises a whimsical look at what it means to carry memories with you from the beginning of time, but...

    Volume 2 of Dive!! moves the series from being a story about diving to more common slice-of-life matters. Continue reading...

    Tsukimonogatari Review

    The final season of Monogatari is off to an intriguing start. Tsukimonogatari may be but a stepping stone on the road to a much bigger story, but it’s changing the franchise in fundamental ways. NISIOISIN continues to keep his beloved series alive with new and compelling developments. Continue...

    What manga are you reading now?

    @Peachy I second the recommendations for Infinite Dendrogram and Realist Hero. I also think Ascendance of a Bookworm is worth a look and I think you should still be able to read that one under the JNC subscription, as it only started fairly recently. :) Meanwhile I've been reading...

    What manga are you reading now?

    Haikyu!! volume 32 - Should have waited for volume 33 and read them together. The mangaka talks about how he pushed in Japan to have those two volumes released only a month apart, but in the West Viz are on a bimonthly schedule. Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash volume 14 (light novel) - Looking...

    What manga are you reading now?

    Demon Slayer volume 6 Hell Warden Higuma (complete) - Another WSJ series lost. At least it's going to get a proper epilogue chapter in July to finish things off, because that 'final' chapter was really unsatisfying.

    Physical Copy Vs. Digital

    Well, ask and you shall receive! ;) So in June last year we got me a second bookcase and this is how things looked at the time: This is how things stand right now: My original idea had been that short and/or completed series would be put on the bookcase on the right whereas longer series...

    Physical Copy Vs. Digital

    I'm not against buying digitally, but I vastly prefer physical for books/anime. With anime it's so expensive that I only tend to buy the shows I really loved and with the way the market has gone into collector's editions, I usually want the super glorified tat edition. Given the amount of...

    Shortcake Cake volume 4 Konosuba volume 8 (light novel) - Anonymous Noise volume 14 - Finally, an ending that didn't feel like a massive cliffhanger!
