tBP Manga Digest presents:
2010 Sept Issues of AVARUS and JUMP SQ
The many awesome cover illustrations of Comic Blade Avarus
There aren’t many color pages from both manga mags this time round but we’ve got some awesome chapters particularly from Avarus. Toxic and Coda were highlights for me because once again, these recent new additions have strong chapters. Hitoshi Ichimura’s Coda was particular funny and engaging at the same time. Needless to say, I was very much looking forward to Toxic and the tantalizing 3rd Chapter didn’t disappoint as I continue to be engrossed with its characters especially the mysterious main character. Like I had mentioned in my previous post on Avarus Issue 08, Monochrome Factor gets to have its latest chapter cover in a double page colour spread plus a colour page in this issue. Chapter 55 was a rather short chapter with just 23 pages. This chapter basically wraps up Ryouko’s back story. Guess what happens to Akira and Ryouko later? Scroll down to find out…xDDD
As for Jump SQ, Kurenai has a slow chapter this week. Ao no Exorcist didn’t impress all that much since it’s the beginning of a new arc and it’s mostly a build-up chapter where Rin and the gang board a train for a class trip. The three titles that interest me the most are ‘SHIKI’, ‘D.Gray-man’ and ‘Tegami Bachi’. SHIKI’s latest chapter started out in a blood splattering manner and ended with a bloody cliffie. In D.Gray-man, Kanda, Alma and Allen got into a bloody messy brawl as well with all three being terribly cut-up but wow, what an epic cliffhanger. ALLLEEEENNNN…his badly wounded body turns the colour of….waaaa….has the 14th finally appear and took control…omigosh…so anticipating the next chapter. Tegami Bachi too ends on a surprising cliffhanger. Lag saved by Gauche return home in time to have dinner Sylvette but had a sudden epiphany when he saw what exactly happened after he shot the heart bullet into Noir. Could my guess be right that Noir is now a part of Gauche? Want the next chapter now. If you don’t already know, Tegami Bachi REVERSE is airing this Fall. Whoops for joy because the ‘Reverse’ chapters are where the story really gets going with plenty of thrills and drama.
Enough of my babbling.
