Manga Digest returns with the Oct Issue of Gekkan ASUKA!
Alrightey! This is a belated post yet again. Before I even begin with an image summary of the Oct issue, I just want to say how appalling some peeps in the fandom have become especially THAT person and her accomplice(s) from a certain manga community in Baidu. It’s not as if this matter hasn’t been brought up and address before but this dishonest person just won’t give up causing problems for others in the fandom’s community. If you’re mouthing people off because they share teasers on their blog(s), then you are just a gazillion times as wrong for taking their scans without their knowledge and claiming that you are the source. STUPIDO! What part of what you do is right huh? If you want to be the source, go buy the damn manga-zines or tankoubons yourself and do whatever you like with them, we don’t give a freaking shit0!. Don’t just go mouthing others off because you can’t get what they can and then you go off stealing stuff and pretend like you’re the wonderful person that you are. That, peeps, is DIRECTED at the person who I bloody well know is stalking tBPII exactly for this wanton purpose. SIGH! RANT over. Now let’s move on to saner things.
-Barajou no Kiss-
-Kamitoki no Resist-
-Hana wa Sakura yori mo Hana no Gotoku-
New shoujo manga from Kawai Yumi and Sakano Keiko about a young girl cross-dressing as a boy so that she could be a ‘noh’ actor. The classical Japanese theater shows are performed male actors which is the reverse of the Kabuki theater, where the performers are female.
-Yoshiwara Hana Oboro-
2nd chapter of Otonaka Sawaki’s manga. I actually like Akaki Tsuki…much more so than Ayahatori in terms of story and plot. This one looks to be similar to Akaki combining drama, comedy, mystery and romance. At least I like that the shoujo heroines in both stories are feisty characters. So, Hana is trap in old Edo of yore and she still doesn’t know how she got there. Will she be able to find a way back to the present?
-Kyou kara Ma no Tsuku Jiyuugyou!-
-Migawari Hakushaku no Bouken-
-Shinrei Tantei Yakumo-
-Messiah ~Seiiki Ishuu-
Chapter 4 – The undercover Sakuras fail to thwart a murder although the intended victim avoid being killed by the assassins. There’s a live action film of Messiah that will air in Oct.
