    Finished the last Claymore Manga *Cries* So sad that it ended.

    By the way, any decent online retailers that sell Manga?

    I usually use Hive but lately they haven't been stocking what I wish to buy. (Looking for High Score Girl)

    Read the third volume of One Punch Man and the first volume of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 2: Battle Tendency.

    Two very different eras of Shonen Jump.

    Recently read both first volumes of The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service and My Little Monster!

    Really dug the first volume of Kurosagi Corpse, feels like that is a series that I want to definitely consider getting more into!

    Also, My Little Monster was as entertaining as I remember based off it's Anime adaptation, Mizutani is still a pretty great character!

    Kurosagi is the best and I am chuffed to see someone else reading it from the start. That series gets down-right savage at times, and its a constant joy. That it never gives in to long plotlines that outstay their welcome is one of its greatest strengths.
    Are you reading it digitally? Last I knew the physical volumes were getting scarce.

    I'm currently on page 3 of Idol Dreams (Kindle). I should probably read the rest of it?

    I was recommended the series a good few years ago now by a friend, he said it we're creepy, disturbing and knows how to use it's humour well in it's setting which I definitely agree with now after reading the opening volume, the OOP volumes back then put me off buying (and that this kind of series typically isn't usually in my wheelhouse so speak).
    I nabbed the volume from one of DH's comiXology First Issues sales back earlier in December.

    Since last time, been bouncing around reading random stuff:
    -More Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches - Read to around Volume 7 now!
    -Started reading Love on the Job - still not finished the first volume yet!
    -Neon Genesis Evangelion - 7th Volume, first in the third omnibus.
    -Nisekoi - Volume 9.
    Best Onodera Turned Up!

    ISTR that Kurosagi is being re-released in 2-vol omnibus format, I'm sure at least 2 omnis are out already.

    Annoying, as I've been collecting the single vols up to now (to #14) and the shift to omnis means a long wait while they catch up and it'll spoil the shelflines... /ocd

    The French are already on tome #17

    For manga, top right to bottom left. Figuring which box is next in the less conventionally drawn ones is somewhat of a honed skill.

    As for Light Novels, like a normal book :p

    Thanks, It's confusing early on. Bought 1-5 tokyo ghoul as i really like the anime but everyone says the anime is rubbish compared to the books. :)

    Since my last update I've read through pretty much all my stash of volume 1's that I have picked up from different vendors on various promotions. These include...

    -Horimiya
    -Say I Love You
    -Your Lie in April
    -Witch Craft Works

    Now I need to buy some more ebooks, pretty much read everything I've purchased, either that or read some subscription based stuff or paper-based volumes!

    Also read the long awaited Volume 8 of Sunshine Sketch. Such a roller coaster of emotions!

    Well, I finally cracked, tracked down a copy of Hellsing volume 10 after being stuck on 9 for more years than I care to admit and am now re-reading it. You kinda forget just how good some of it is...and just how indecipherable Father Anderson can seem :/
