My tankoubon collection is ever-growing of late and is fast filling up the cabinet space in the bedroom. Seriously, I need a separate room just to store my books now. Anyway, a couple of recent releases that I bought include Ryo Takahashi’s Toxic volume 3 and Yugyoji Tama’s +C:Sword and Cornett volume 6.
MANGAZINE DIGEST: GEKKAN ASUKA DECEMBER ISSUE (2011)
I had originally planned to wait till the January 2012 issue and do a combo mag post but since I will be very occupied with RL activities in December, I won’t have time to scan stuff from the magazines. Therefore I acquiesce to time constraint and thus, this post. Fans of Uraboku would certainly love the 2nd collection of illustrative cards that is bundled with this issue of Asuka but unfortunately, there isn’t any new chapter. However, there will be a new chapter in the upcoming Jan issue. So, keep a look out for it as I’ll try and squeeze some snippets when I get my copy of Asuka’s Jan 2012 issue.
A Special Post!
You know it’s that time of the year again when 2012 calendars start sprouting up all over the web and online stores. Well, Ayu is very happy to share a peek of the newly released Pandora Hearts Comic Calendar for 2012 with fans of PH and the rest of the manga fandom. I received my copy of the calendar this week and love it. You’ll be pleased to know that Mochizuki-sensei added several new illustrations. Among those we’ve seen before are illustrations that appeared in the publications over the year and to me, they are still fairly new. Well then, I am sure everyone has their favourite month(s) that they would like to share with me. Want to know what’s mine? Find out after the cut! :D
The anime adaptation of Kairi Shimotsuki’s BRAVE 10 is expected to air in January 2012. If you enjoy the manga, then you like me will be curious about the upcoming anime. The 1st anime PV basically contained still image slides that really didn’t give us much of a glimpse of the animation but the 2nd trailer which was recently released on the anime’s official youtube site, shows us some animated footage. I like what I see so far. So what does every one else think of it?
Brave10 PV# 2
I know I sound like a broken record to the regulars when I say that I’m behind on many things due to a very busy RL and such. Can’t help but bears repeating the overused reason because there are newcomers and followers to tBPII . *Waves* welcome to you peeps. Time to play catch up with *short* blurbs of what I missed.
New Manga-mag publication on the block:
This is probably old news to most of you manga-mags followers. Kadokawa Shoten recently launch a new manga magazine publication called ‘Altima Ace‘. See More of Ayu’s Blurbs After the Cut
To get the entrance ticket for a chance to glimpse the K77 chapter snippets by answering the following challenge question:
Q: What is another word for ‘Sanguine’?
“The correct answer (as defined by Ayu) will be your ticket to the snippets for Kapitel 77″…Good Luck Peeps!
Blurbs, blurbs and more blurbs – Oh So Not Random!
Time for another Mangazine Digest post. In fact, this is a multi-post mag updates featuring the November issues of Asuka, Avarus and GFantasy. It’s more than a little late which is why I scrap the individual mag feature and decide on a one shot, multi-mag updates for this round. Nonetheless, I hope you regulars would still find the bumper snippet spam enjoyable and *spoiler-y*. :P Newer updates are in cue with the December issues coming my way and I know most of the peeps from a particular fandom are anxiously waiting for ‘THAT’ chapter teasers. It will be fun to see how many of you in the fandom make it past my next *trap*. I am pleasantly surprised that a number of newcomers to my blog from the said fandom made it through the 1st one and left their comments in the actual teaser post. Regulars are a little spoiled from before but really, you peeps should amp-up for the next one. Don’t give up so easily. Ah…to those who don’t know what the dinkums am I babbling about, fret not…the longer you patronized tBPII, the better educated you are on what’s going on. XD
Alrightey! On to the onslaught of image heavy mag snippets.
Head beyond the cut for more manga snippets
