Pandora Hearts Vol.20 SE and Karneval Vol.11 – Covers plus Inserts

I am seemingly taking my time with things these days in terms of blogging. This is evident in the fact that I’ve yet to post my usual monthly 07-Ghost chapter spoilers. But nonetheless, tBP will stutter on with as much energy that can be accorded to it in my spares.

Once again, we have a couple of volume releases to share and it is the most recent volumes of Pandora Hearts and Karneval.  Pandora Hearts Vol.20 came out on May-27 whereas Karneval’s Vol.11 was released a month earlier, on April-25.


As one can tell from the pic above, I got myself a copy of Pandora Heart’s Special Edition which featured Gil on the cover plus it came with a teeny weeny Gil figurine. The regular volume has got Oscar-sama on the cover. The copy I bought of Karneval is the regular edition that featured a slightly brighter illustration of Yogi than the SE version (which can be seen here).

Read on for more stuff of the respective volumes.

Volume 11 of Touya Mikanagi’s manga contained Score 61 to 66, six chapters in total. It is no fluke that Yogi is on the cover as there is plenty of Yogi moments in this volume where his back-story and origin is being told. Fans of Silver Yogi will fangirl over his mischievousness in these chapters. (。 >艸<)

P A N D O R A    H E A R T S    V O L U M E    20   –   S P E C I A L    E D I T I O N

I did say at the start that Vol.20 Special Edition came with a Gil figurine. Well, here are some pictures I took of it.  あのちびカワイイね… (⌒▽⌒)☆

Alright then, back to the main topic. Volume 20 comprises of Retrace 79 to 82 where there are plenty of developments for Gil, Oz and Oscar-sama. With so much emotional exposition that exude from these chapters, you can’t help feeling overawed.  While I had initially doubted Oscar’s leanings/affiliations, he is one truly tragic but heroic figure and he turned out to be such a noble character till the end. Sadly, his journey came to a halt but Oz couldn’t have a more wonderful father figure than he has in Oscar-sama. The SE volume also include a bonus chapter titled ‘It makes all kinds‘. We are shown snippets of lighthearted moments during the tea party at the grounds of Pandora before all hell broke loose.
