Snippets from GFantasy Issue 10 plus bonus from Sylph Issue 10
Yay! Ayu is back with a long overdue update. Well, I didn’t want to miss out sharing snips from the Oct issue of GFantasy and for the first time, some juicy *spoils* from Sylph manga mag. I reckon both Kuroshitsuji and Pandora Hearts fandom have probably seen the scanlated of Chapters 49 and 53 respectively. So this post gives me an opportunity to post my favourite panels from both series. Besides, there are other titles that people might not have the chance of viewing and ‘Gfan’ is known to publish short one-off titles from upcoming Mangakas. I thought it’ll be fun to preview some panels from the one shots and the other titles that tickle my fancy. And heck ya, I got the freebie Kuroshitsuji mechanical pencil to go with the pen from last issue. This will also be the first time I post any snippets from ‘Sylph’ manga mag. I came across and pick up Issue 10 out of sheer curiosity for ‘Dear Girl ~stories~’ which is inspired by Kamiya Hiroshi and Ono Daisuke, two of my favourite seiyus. Fans of Sylph will *squee* at the bonus poster collection that came with the Oct issue. Anyway, it’s not going to be a regular feature on my current manga mag subscription list, though. Last but not least, guess I should warn you peeps that this is an image heavy post. Enjoy and be absolutely swamp by the image spam… 😛
::GFantasy Issue 10::
3rd Successive time that Kuroshitsuji stole the cover feature. Issue 11 will also have a Kuroshitsuji cover. Not that I don’t love it, who doesn’t? I really hope Toboso Yana has plans to collate all her gorgeous Kuro artwork and release a proper artbook.
Kimi to Boku – Colour page and double colour spread for its chapter. I’m a fan of the laid back, simple art style that aptly captures the slice of life feel of the manga. Reminds me a lot of ‘Natsume Yuujin-chou’.
How did something deliciously sweet took a sour turn? Girl protagonist ends up getting kidnapped and tortured by a snooty bunch of jealous rich girls. Seriously, these girls need to have their faces stuff in a vat of sour cream.
Lammermoor no Shounen Kiheitai from Natsunishi Nana – Chapter 5
Creepy Art and macabre story. I didn’t really get into ‘Lammermoor’ initially. Anyway, it’s about a group of school boys being conned by a nutcase dude to act out a real do or die play on board a creepy cruise liner named ‘Lammermoor’. One of the boys even cross dress a girl… so ghey.
Shirokuro Kitan – Chapter 11 ‘1st Cry in Darkness’
I love this series so far. The gothic art style is reminiscent of Shiro Miwa’s ‘DB+C’ with a bit of ‘Shiki’ but less flamboyant. xD Shirou, Ririko and Kurokichi were attacked by those ‘flaming eyes’ from the Dark Tower… hmm…this is starting to sound like something from Stephen King. Kurokichi’s ability is sure scary awesome!
::The One Shots::
::KUROSHITSUJI:: – Chapter 49
Poor guy had to endure the freaky Phantomhive experience for so long but it made him write the now famous Sherlock tales…hahaha… at least in the Kuroshitsuji-verse he did. For a moment, I thought Toboso-sensei turn Sebby into a giant octopus spewing ink and bearing tentacles. Chapter 49 is such a fun read and is the most comical chapter in a long while.
Kuroshitsuji Volume 10 featured a very dignified Tanaka on the cover.
I received my copy a day after it was released in Japan. Not going to post tank covers & colour pages this time round. A certain site has already shared them.
PANDORA HEARTS – Chapter 53
This is such a (T_T) chapter but I still wonder if Reim is really dead. Mochizuki finally dared to kill off a main supporting character. Lily is a very baaaaad girl and should be punished. Seems like we’re being clued in to who the real ‘headhunter’ is. Since Reo is initially from the House of Fianna, he might be one of the original HH contractor.
::SYLPH Issue 10::
All about ‘Hakuouki Hekketsu-roku‘
‘Hakuouki’ fans are eagerly anticipating Season 2 which will air in a little more than a week’s time. So this little preview might be of interest.
Character designs for Season 2 – love the smexy uniforms
Sylph Summer Poster Collection
– It is what is says it is, a collection of posters from some of Sylph popular manga series
Curious as to what the posters are, well *Click* on the cover to get to the freebie but you need to know the name of the manga-mag that gave away this lovely bonus. Easy-peasy, right?! 😛
And that ended a rather long winded update full of image spam!
