New manga

August 16, 2009 at 15:57 (Uncategorized)

A recommendation that is awesome – Break Blade.  Good art, snappy text, funny and catching storyline – pretty much everything I want in a manga.  It falls a bit flat in the use of camera angles and movement isn’t depictedthat well but it’s fine, you still get what’s going on.    Alchemist had me chewing my lip again at the chapter close.  There was no WSJ and no Air Gear this week…

I’m trying out my hand at translating again – GrimReaper; it’s like Bleach in so many ways.  And I’m finding the latest Bleach filler strangely enjoyable. 

There are a couple of things that happen in MB on the weekends.  Saturday mornings have almost a festive feel as you walk down the main street.  Everyone is dressed in their best, eating icecream and swinging shopping bags.  The lower end income stores have speakers on the streets pushing out 90’s ballads and romantic songs from movies.  Everyone is happy – it’s Saturday morning.  Saturday afternoons are quite – most of the shops are closed.  And on Sunday, they are all closed.  But even if they were open, no one would be shopping.  MB people are church people and the bells ring all Sunday morning.  Then it’s relative visiting with lunch.  Every weekend is the same – and I do mean every weekend.
