::Zero-Sum Issue 12::
My copy of Z-SUM Issue 12 arrived yesterday (Monday). Love the cover featuring the lovely trio from Karneval. Fans of 07-Ghost will be squeeing with delight that the new chapter include a colour page plus a double-page colour spread. It’s been a while since 07-Ghost steals the main focus. Well, it’s about time the manga gets more love. The chapter was enlightening as well. The main plot is moving. Teito and Ouka are destined to meet again. Oh yay! for Hakuren appearing in the chapter. It has been such a long while since he was last featured in a chapter. Seems like Teito and Frau will be coming back into the picture next issue and yes, 07-Ghost will get to be on the main cover of the Jan 2011 Issue.
Karneval also gets an interesting chapter. Karoku is awake but he doesn’t seem to know who Nai is. Poor tearful Nai being rejected by the very person he’s been looking for all this while. Akari finds the whole scenario strange. Maybe he’s not the real Karoku. Meanwhile, Gareki is trying to get use to his new school surroundings and classmates.
Other chapters worth noting are +C: Sword and Cornett which gets a colour page (fangirls over Belca cos he’s finally stepping up and manning up to be a true contender for the throne, at least Eco and I think alike…muahaha); Tousei Gensou Hakubutsushi with Shinobu scaring the crap out of Kaisei and Shingo in particular 😆 (you can read the English translated chapters here); Yay! Naked Ape’s Dolls is back after taking a month long break or is it two?! More Mikoshiba in the chapter is always worth it; Devils and Realist, Planetary*, Tenkyuugi~Sephirahnatus and Goulart Knights have all gotten some plot progressions.
Lack of time means I’m really making short work of my updates for this issue of Z-Sum. Would have love to include more chapter *spoilers* or *snippets* like I did before. Who knows, I might just include a full chapter of Karneval and +C: a little later in the week if I’m not still buried by R/L stuff.
That’s it! Enjoy 🙂
