Post your Monthly Manga Haul

Here's my November haul:
manga-haul-november.png
A bit less than I'd normally buy in a month, but that's also good for a change. Of the above I've only read Komi so far, so my backlog continues to grow šŸ˜

Was also under the impression I had vol 2 of Syrup, but checking my spreadsheets and digging through boxes reveals that I only have vol 1 and now also vol 3. Since it's an anthology I assume it doesn't hurt reading them out of order, though last time I did that with Ć©clair there were a couple of authors who created consecutive stories that build upon each other. Does anyone know if that's the case with Syrup as well?

Parasite in Love - vol 1 (German)
Forever Girls (German)
MƤdchen X MƤdchen (German)
Boy's Abyss - vol 2 (German)
Don't Toy With me, Miss Nagatoro - vol 7 (English)
Komi Can't Communicate - vol 14 (English)
Syrup - vol 3 (English)
Kakegurui - vol 13 (English)

Here we go:
Hopefully you can read them all, it would be quite the job to right the list out!

I also ordered Ping-Pong from Wordery, but they haven't shown. More worryingly they aren't listed in my orders. I'll wait for a little bit (post might be slowing down by now) and chase them up.

Does anyone know if that's the case with Syrup as well?
Just checked my posts in the "What manga you reading" thread and you're fine.

The book in the middle there is Aidalro Illustrations artbook for Toilet-bound Hanako-kun, which is a beautiful collection of art from the series. šŸ„° Also my parents bought me volume 8 of Bloom Into You and not 7, so that's going to have to sit there a little bit before I can read it...

Then onto digital...
Monthly haul december digital.jpeg
That's My Atypical Girl volume 3
Kieta Hatsukoi volumes 2-7 (released by Viz as My Love Mix-Up)
Our Bodies, Entwining, Entwined volume 2
With a Dog and a Cat, Every Day is Fun volume 6
Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks? volume 11 (LN)
xxxHolic: re volume 1
Yugami-kun ni wa Tomodachi ga Inai volume 1

I had a coupon for Bookwalker so I went all-in on Kieta Hatsukoi, especially after hearing the translation has been a bit subpar in English. I started watching the drama for it on Viki too, so that also drove my purchase. Not finished xxxHolic yet, but the first vol was free so thought there was no harm in grabbing it.

Time for my December haul! I counted 85 volumes here.
Oh boy, my hauls just seem to get bigger and bigger... I'm not really trying to, it just keeps happening. I'm hoping to downscale my monthly hauls in 2022 because I simply don't have space to keep going at this pace but at the moment it does feel a little bit like a rush to collect everything I want while I can find it at good prices/available at all. And of course, doing my part supporting new titles too.

I'm not sure if posting my videos is or isn't welcome, so please feel free to (gently and kindly) let me know otherwise if so, but I always feel like my hauls I post here are rather lackluster compared to the ones I post over on YouTube since I can only convey so much with a photo and admittedly already way too long text description. I give my thoughts and show the volumes properly here, if anyone would like a deeper look at one of my hauls.


(Would like to add that I don't make any kind of revenue from this, I just want to share with other manga readers so that they might find something new or interesting)

I don't see a reason why they wouldn't be welcome and I for one do enjoy your videos. :)

Nice Fukumaru plush! I picked up BL Metamorphosis after reading your thoughts on it and it's been wonderful. :)

Great haul/video as always.
I love Fukumaru! It's a shame I don't have the newer volumes of that manga yet though... but I also loved the j-drama, which was what lead me to buy the plush.
And thank you, I'm so glad to hear you've been enjoying BL Metamorphosis! It's so wholesome and heartwarming.

If I ever post a haul photo I wanna include my MIffy Sanrio scarf in it somehow since you put your awesomely cute Pusheen blanket in yours @setokaiba! (I got the scarf today!) :)

I don't really know if I'll buy any more manga this month but I did buy the following at Waterstones yesterday as my birthday was on the 8th of January so I've been treating myself a bit:

I Hear the Sunspot - Yuki Fumino
My Love Mix-Up! Vol. 1 - Aruko, Wataru Hinekure
No. 5 Vol. 1 - Taiyo Matsumoto
On A Sunbeam - Tillie Walden (not manga, but looks to be an absolutely beautiful graphic novel) :)

I would totally love to see that! And those are great choices, I really want to pick up I Hear The Sunspot. I actually saw Limit 1 in Waterstones recently myself, almost bought it but when I read the back I couldn't tell if it was the start or not haha. Happy late birthday btw!

Limit is the second sequel series. I think it goes I Hear the Sunspot > I Hear the Sunspot: Theory of Happiness > I Hear the Sunspot Limit > and then there is another one running in Japan atm which is currently unlicensed (although I can't see it not being picked up in the future).

Wow that's slightly confusing haha but thanks so much for clarifying!!

I'm really late but I didn't forget to post my January haul! Just had a kind of crazy February.
I'm trying to tone down my manga purchases... it might not look like it, since my haul is still huge, but it's less than last month so I'll try and continue that trend.
As much as I LOVE growing my personal library, space is becoming an issue fast ;_;

274293111_1065299860713950_6744809237762234058_n.jpg

Takane & Hana volume 18 limited edition with bonus booklet (Complete! This is one of my favourite series ever I will also be getting the regular edition for the alternate cover, had to grab this one first for the bonus content)
Gal Gohan 3-4
The Apothecary Diaries 1-2
Miriya & Marie
BL Fans Love My Brother
Replay
Bloom Into You 1
JK Haru is a Sex Worker in Another World 2
Hot Gimmick 1, 6, 7
After the Rain 1-2
Cross Game 7
Don't Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro 3
Genshiken Omnibus 2-3 (Complete)
Emma 2, 4, 5
Fall in Love Like a Comic 1-2
Miss Me?
Just a Girl (1? I really can't tell if this is a one shot or not because it's numbered but volume 2 doesn't appear to exist)
Socrates in Love
Ultimate Venus 1
Mermaid Melody Pitchi Pitchi Pitch 1
Pretear 1
Backstage Prince 1
My Senpai is Annoying 2, 5
Demon Love Spell 1-6 (Complete)
B.O.D.Y 1-10 (Complete)
Sweat and Soap 2
Waiting for Spring 1
Nights
Finder 1-2
Ciguatera 1
Kare First Love 1-10 (Complete)

In conclusion, I got a surprising amount of one shots (normally not something I go for) and a lot of cheap shoujo. Romances continue to reign supreme in my collection hehe but this one is even more biased than usual with almost every title having a romance element.
Also, I love seeing everyone else's hauls! I'm impressed at how some of you guys seem very up to date on recent titles. I'm falling behind on almost all of them since I jumped back into the hobby not so long ago but it's always nice to read stuff as it releases so hopefully I'll get there.
