Manga Haul

I finally landed a job (about damn time), so I went and splurged a bit on a recent Right Stuf Manga Sale. I wanted to get stuff that I was planning on getting anyway and saved about 33% on each book. Since I went over the $49 minimum purchase, I got free shipping to boot.

Since I got both the Yokai Doctor v1 and Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei in February cheap, I wanted to get what I could from the series. I wanted to get both series a while ago, but never really had the funds to get a mass purchase like this. I like being able to pickup the next volume instead of waiting months before the next one comes out.

I am following Fairy Tail (which is a riot by the way) and the Official xxxiHolic Guide to finish off the purchases.

I need to get some Manga reviews started on the first 2 series soon. At least now I have some reading material for my 1/2 hour lunch at work. I hope that I do not freak out anyone with them - LOL.

BTW: I have been reading the Kurohime series and volume 15 was suppose to come out on 01/05. I have never been able to find it anywhere - eBay, Amazon, Borders or Barnes & Noble. Does anyone have any ideas of where to pick it up? I will have to end up reading it online soon.


  1. Wao, nice haul!
    Sorry, I can't help you on your vol 15 quest.

  2. Congratulations on the job! There is nothing like a spending spree to commence work.

    Kurohime Volume 15 has been a difficult one for me to find as well. My local manga shop has said that there have been problems with printing, but they are hopeful it'll be in stock by the end of the month. Though that's what they said last month, so I'm not holding my breath. All of my odd online anime shops do not have it available. Good luck to you if you can find a copy soon.

  3. Glad you landed a job. They're still scarce these days so congrats on that.

    More Zetsubou Sensei? Nice ^^
    I've only see the anime. Looking forward to some reviews on the manga ^^

  4. @Singer Yuna ~ I have plenty of reading now :)

    @VT ~ thanks for the update, I was not sure what happened to that volume.

    @anonymous_object ~ I got the job, but hope to be able to keep going strong after the 5 week training.

  5. I don't read manga but nice haul there pal!

  6. Nice haul. I don't follow any of those, but buying manga is always fun!

  7. Congrats on your new job!!!!!!!!! You defiantly deserve a little reward for the hard work that you put in.

  8. Is the xxxHolic Guide worth it? I'm a fan of the manga but I'm hesitant if the guide will be worth it. Also yes :) love the Fairy Tail and Zetaubou Sensei choices.

  9. Woa..suge na

    you got fairy tail

    ive been wanting to get it, but i ive been getting other things...*cough figures.

  10. OK, I know that I said that I was not going to be buying any manga for a while. Well, I lied. I just bought my first ever dojinshi off Ebay today!!!!!! It's from Revolutionary Girl Utena, this will be interesting to see when I get my hands on it.

  11. @Dennis aka Katsuden ~ It was nice to actually get some new reading matter at a discount in bulk.

    @Yi ~ yes it is :)

    @ Andrew L. Budny ~ training is fun right now, but not looking forward to being on the calls talking with upset peoples - LOL

    btw: let me know about the dojinshi as I have not gotten any myself.

    @lovelyduckie ~ I am going to review the xxHolic Guide soon - depending on work. It seems likable so far. I like the fact that they have quotes of Yuko's in there from the Anime.

    @Fabrice ~ I love Fairy Tails and hope they never some out with figures (large ones at that).


Don't just Read and Run, leave me a note about what you thought of the blog!
