LaLa Issue 04 plus a 3rd season of the Book of Friends


Random Special – LaLa Issue 04

The reason why I even had this issue of LaLa is because of the happy, happy news that it contained. It’s probably old news to most of you but I care not because I’m really excited that ‘Natsume Yuujinchou’ is getting a 3rd season. The first 2 seasons were my favourites anime of 2008/2009. The anime adaptation stood out as one of the best from Brain’s Base that I’ve seen. Since then it’s been tough to find a series that could feel the void Natsume left. So, you can imagine how delighted I was when a 3rd season was green lit. I’m really looking forward to it and will of course, be covering the series when it eventually airs.

::Chapter 50 Snippets::
~ Since I don’t subscribe to LaLa, I didn’t follow the monthly chapters publication. Instead, I buy the volume releases to catch up with the manga chapters. Still, I thought it nice to share snippets from this issue since I have it.  It appears that Natsume is trapped and Tanuma is trying to rescue him from the group of youkai that had him spirited away in a glass jar. Poor Tanuma who can’t see but only feel the presence of youkai. Nyanko-sensei drops in to help of course. *LoL* Oh, take a guess who is the figure with the paper bag over his head? Clue: Akira Ishida voiced the anime counterpart.🙂

Some snippets of the other stuff that appeared in LaLa’s April Issue xD

::Vampire Knight::
~ Chapter 69 double page colour spread. Nothing much to say about this chapter. The story needs to get a move on.

::Kisu mori no Hayaku (Faster Than a Kiss)::
~ This used to be a funny manga until I get seriously bored with the same old rinse repeat story line between the main characters.

::Harukanaru toki no naka de 5::
~ A new sequel from Mizuno Tohko. I’ve never read the previous ones so I’m not familiar with the story’s progression or plots.

::Oiran Girl::
~ I found this manga by Hibiki Wataru rather funny and cute. Way more interesting than ‘Faster than a kiss’.
