Why hello there, Andrew. Long time no see. I thought I’d break my year long hiatus with an easy post, the old buy and brag. This is the package I got in the mail from rightstuf today. A mixture of my CMX, Del Rey, and Weekly Specials orders. I might make posts like this in the future to show off my collection or for just another easy post.
Hunter x Hunter vol. 3– I didn’t expect to enjoy this after dismissing the manga as shonen drek, but I guess it’s true what they say, all Yoshihiro Togashi manga work better as anime. This will shoot to the top of my “to watch” list as soon as I delete some stuff from my DVR.
Astral Project vol. 4– The fourth and final volume. I just ordered this during the CMX manga sale and haven’t received the first three yet so this will be kept in the shrink wrap for now.
Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei vol. 3– I didn’t find the second volume to be as hilarious as the first but I’ll give it another go.
X-Men: Misfits vol. 1– The second to be released in Del Rey’s “Marvel Manga” series (the first was Wolverine: Prodigal Son). I was excited to read this, but the shojo artwork is turning me off.
CMX Summer 2009 Preview– Yay, something for free! Rightstuf had a deal that if you purchased $50 worth of CMX manga, you’d get a free sampler. So I did. Everything is still on backorder, with a couple pre-orders.
So, that’s it for now. If you’re interested in a review of any of the above titles, leave a request in the comments!
