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. 😆 😛

LaLa Issue 04 plus a 3rd season of the Book of Friends

Random Special – LaLa Issue 04

The reason why I even had this issue of LaLa is because of the happy, happy news that it contained. It’s probably old news to most of you but I care not because I’m really excited that ‘Natsume Yuujinchou’ is getting a 3rd season. The first 2 seasons were my favourites anime of 2008/2009. The anime adaptation stood out as one of the best from Brain’s Base that I’ve seen. Since then it’s been tough to find a series that could feel the void Natsume left. So, you can imagine how delighted I was when a 3rd season was green lit. I’m really looking forward to it and will of course, be covering the series when it eventually airs.

Mag Updates: Asuka Issue 04/11

I actually meant to put this up earlier but with the terrible consequences transpiring from the aftermath of the natural twin disasters that hit Japan on Friday 11-Mar, I’ve been anxiously following updates of the situation over there since then. I’m relieve to know that those I’m acquainted with are accounted for, albeit more than a tad *shaken* up. But yes, let us do what we can in our own little way to help get those affected get back up on their feet again.

I like to share this drawing by Yana Toboso which she posted on twitter. Simple and hopeful message but it works.

And now, back to ASUKA Issue #04.

Lunar New Year Snippets from Zero-Sum Issue 03/11

Snips, Snips and More Snips from Zero-Sum March Edition!!!

March Cover Spotlight Goes To “Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist

What’s in store, what’s in store?! Tons of snips. I got a little carried away during a recent short break and tried to squeeze in a snip of nearly every manga title…nearly but not all, mostly those that gotten hold of my short attention span as I quickly ran the mag thru the scanner. I also just realized I’d forgotten to make a customary ‘Lunar New Year’ post. It isn’t too late to pop a little greeting in here as the lunar festival will not end until Feb-17th which will be the 15th day of the Chinese Lunar Calendar.

So, I would like to take this opportunity to wish every one who drops by tBPII a “Happy Lunar New Year of the Rabbit“. Xin Nian Kuai Le. 新年快乐! 幸せな正月! 행복 음력 설날!

Enjoy this humongous picspam!
