Mag Updates: Zero-Sum Issue 04


Snippets from Zero-Sum April 2011 Edition

April Cover Spot Goes To KARNEVAL

This took a teeny while to put up but it’s done. There’s a little bit of most of the regular favourites (reads mine *lol*) from Z-Sum. However, I skipped Loveless, Tetsuichi, Haikyo Circle, Shitsuji ni Kokkyou Nante, Landreaall, Corseltel no Ryuujitsushi – Koryuu Monogatari, Ogamiya Yokochou Tenmatsuki, ♯000000-ultra black, Hatenkou Yuugi and Gakuyaura – Binbouhimanashi-hen.  Aside from that, Sakura Maro’s Planetary* and Ueda Shinsyu’s Sai no Kami both ended with their final chapters.  I thought Planetary* was rather boring so I’m glad it ended here and now.  Sai no Kami didn’t leave me with much of an impact either but at least, the storyline is somewhat more excitable than Planetary*.  Lastly, before anyone ask, there is no ‘Tenkyuugi – Sephirahnatus’ in this issue. But don’t fret Tenkyuugi followers, the manga will be back with a new chapter in Z-Sum’s May edition.

Now then Z-Sum’s groupies, on with the so-called *teasers*…duh, not so much of a teaser if you’ve already seen speed scanlations elsewhere in cyberspace but what the heck, these are meant for those who are deprived or less surf savvy.😆😛

SNIPPETS

::Are You Alice?::
~ Chapter 22 colour pages. Of note, Volume 3 plus the Anthology Volume were both out on sale not too long ago.

::DOLLS::
~ Ads for Naked Ape’s DOLLS which has its latest Volume 10 out on Feb-25. A freebie special jacket cover is included with this edition of Z-Sum. Didn’t scan it but it featured the same illustration as the 1st ad shown here. On a side note, I found it funny that some Dolls’ fans complained about seeing too much Sakurazawa Tokio in the current backstory flashbacks, particularly his scary looking hair. *LMAO*  Some went so far as to give Vol.10 a poor rating because of that. Well, I thought Tokio and Shouta’s history served as an important revelation of what happened in the past and why it still haunted Shouta. Maybe it’s the hair…*LoL*…j/kg😛
