Karneval Vol.13 LE and Pandora Hearts Vol.22 SE – Covers plus Inserts


Wow!!! This blog has seen some better days. It has been on a very long hiatus indeed. Even WP has undergone some changes with the blogging interface that I am only aware of now.  But anyway, though I no longer update stuff like I used to, I haven’t been totally inactive. One can still find me re-blogging and sharing stuff on tumblr.  That said, I thought that I share some recent tankoubon releases here for a change.

Does anyone still follow Karneval and Pandora Hearts? Karneval‘s 13th Volume was released on Apr-25 and Pandora Hearts‘s 22nd Volume was out on Apr-26.  The volumes I’d gotten are both limited editions that came with drama CDs. I haven’t gotten round to ripping the CDs yet but who knows, I might just upload and share them in this post as an update later.

A bit of news before I spam this post with scans of the respective tank releases. It was announced that Pandora Hearts’ next volume (#23) will be its last. Well, that is something which is not unexpected as the manga has been headed towards its climax with all the happenings and revelations coming to light in the last couple of volumes. Let’s hope that we’re getting a good climax of an ending. Of course, Karneval on the other hand, is far from over. So fans of Yogi, Gareki and Nai need not worry. ^_^

Pandora Hearts Comic Calendar 2014


G R E E T I N G S ! Another year is about to end and signs of this are the deluge of ani-manga Calendars being out on sale. One of the fandoms that I frequently keep up with is “PANDORA HEARTS” as those of you who followed my blog would know. I gotten my copy of Mochizuki Jun’s /Square Enix 2014 Calendar of her beloved manga when I got back from Italy. It’s always nice to come home to something that I enjoy and love. I do miss my ani-manga hobby while I was away. But less of that and more of what I’m going share.

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).

Pandora Hearts Vol.19 – Cover plus Inserts


A little late with my post again but I’m back with some images of Pandora Hearts Vol.19 that featured Alyss on the cover. Yes this is the normal/regular edition. I believe the special edition is with Oz on the cover which someone had posted and shared on LJ earlier on. The SE version also came with a figurine of Oz. Anyway, volume 19 was released on Nov-27 and contained 4 chapters i.e. Retrace 75-78. Plenty of revelations and developments in those chapters if I may say so. Like the manga, then do support the mangaka and publisher by buying the official tankoubon releases.

Being a fan of Pandora Hearts and of Mochizuki Jun‘s artwork, I’m always looking forward to the manga publication’s annual calendar releases. Pandora Hearts Calendar for 2013 is now out on sale and I’ve gotten my copy just a day after it was released on Nov-11. I’m happy with Mochi-Jun’s choice of illustrations for the new calendar. It’s worth getting a copy as there are 5 new illustrations along with the ones that were done for the manga chapters and covers published in GFantasy of this year. Once again, I have my picks of favourites from the 12 months of lovely PH art. So, which ones are your favourites? Care to share your picks here? Then, do drop your comments on it after taking a peek of the new PH calendar, courtesy of Ayu.

Quick Stops: Pandora Hearts 74, Kuroshitsuji 70 and ZeroSum 07-12


Been a while since I chatted about Pandora Hearts and Kuroshitsuji manga. I managed to catch up on the recent chapters too. Aside from that, I thought I should include some freebies from the ZeroSum July issue as I haven’t posted anything from the manga mag lately. On that note, I maybe getting my copy of ZSUM’s August edition a little later than usual this month cos I’m late renewing my subscription. Same goes for ASUKA. That means I’ll probably won’t play the 07-G brain teaser and just post my thoughts on the new chapter when I get my copy of the mag. Well, life is busy these days as you can tell. 😛

So then, let’s get back to the topics at hand.

Pandora Hearts Vol.17 Regular Edition – Cover plus Inserts


Photobucket

Pandora Hearts Vol.17 was released on Mar-27 and it came in two different editions i.e. the normal and the special limited edition. The difference between the two is the cover art illustrations plus the limited edition also came with key rings. It seems that many in the fandom ordered the special edition because of the extras and it was out of stock on some online bookstores. I, on the other hand chose to buy the normal edition and thus, I scan the cover plus inserts like I always do when I received a new volume and post them here. I like the Jacket cover art which features Lacie in front and Revis on the back portion. Other than that, everything else appears the same as the special edition volume. As far as I’m aware of, there are more scans of the limited edition being shared in the fandom but little to no scans of the normal version. So, here they More PH goodies after the jump
