Puppet Fight!

Oh my god, what is this? On a whim, started reading Karakuri Circus and this shit is bananas. People fight to the death with puppets. It's weird and funny. Why do I start reading all this shit when I'm so busy with work and school? Argh.

Yes, that's a puppet smashing another puppet with a puppet arm. How can something that sounds so outrageously stupid look so awesome?

Dat name, lol

Kouta Hirano, the chubby gun otaku, just garotted a would-be rapist in front of child and nothing more was said about it after that. No big deal.

Is that name a coincidence? I find it funny.

This series is at once realistic and ridiculous. Seriously. I'm enjoying Highschool of the Dead quite a bit, 19 chapters in. Thanks for the rec.

Highschool of the Dead, Mirai Nikki

Started reading Highschool of the Dead on a friend's recommendation. I knew it was fanservice-y, which I don't care either way for, but I'm really digging these characters. There isn't a single one I dislike so far, 7 chapters in, aside from the obviously evil bad guy asshole teacher dude. Maybe I'll write more on it as I get further along. The occasional cryptic narrations keeps the mood down, and makes me anxious to continue.

Also reread Mirai Nikki, just because. I love me a happy ending, but only the second time reading it did I realize just how much fucked up stuff Yuno gets away with. It doesn't sit as well, and it seems like a much less happy ending than it did the first time. Maybe that's intentional. Maybe I read too much of it while half-asleep and missed it all the first time through. In any case, Minene Uryuu is the best character and if you disagree, you are wrong.

The best day ever

*insert that stupid fucking ear worm song from Spongebob here*

It finally happened and now I own them. Sailor Moon and Sailor V, in English, not shit, and nothing is wrong in the world for me right now. I don't even feel bad about spending the money on these when I should be saving. I'm nostalgia-tripping right now it feels good.

Support the manga industry when you can. Even a cheap-ass like me does sometimes.
