    Not manga (or LN), but anime related. I have just finished reading through the Giovanni's Island Ultimate Edition book. Fascinating read about the history of the island chains north of Japan featured in the film and Japanese-Russian relations over the last few centuries.

    Well done, that man. It took me nearly two years to finally get around to reading mine!

    Fire Force Volume 1 (Dropped) - Review forthcoming so won't say too much, but to me it's a generic shonen with no real redeeming qualities so won't be continuing it beyond this volume.

    The Night and the Lady Volume 1 - probably won’t read any more of this, but was entertaining enough. :)

    A certain someone with a red plug suit shows up and much hilarity ensues!

    Not sure if I remember this from the anime. It's been ages since I last saw it.

    If you've watched the anime, you'll find that it sticks quite closely to the manga (up to Chapter 41 halfway through Volume 11). A nice bonus (literally) is that each manga has a full colour plate at the front and some fun/interesting bonus material at the back.

    Story-wise, it moves at a decent shonen-style pace with plenty of twists and turns in the plot. The artwork is attractive and, as @Gemsy-chan alludes above, there are some wonderfully warped characters! (Or are they...?)

    I like the Seraph of the End manga. You've just reminded me I need to badger the friend I'm borrowing it off and see if he's got any more volumes for me to borrow. Meanwhile tonight I read Princess Jellyfish 5.

    Neon Genesis Evangelion 3-in-1 Manga vol 3
    Lots of back story and psychological trauma for the pilots.
    Rei looks very much like Shinjis mother and may be a clone of her and she mentions not wanting to feel like she was made of straw.
    Shinji realises that he witnessed his mothers "death", although it appears she was absorbed by Unit-01. Possibly why both Rei (before Shinji showed up) and Shinji himself can pilot it so well.
    Asuka is forced by an Angel probing her mind to remember that her mother went mad and tried to kill her as she was born from a eugenics experiment after her mother couldn't have a child with her husband (who subsequently had a child with a mistress and then left)! :eek:
    Some interesting reading in the appendix of each Part as well called "Secrets of Evangelion".
