So, my sister and I put together an order (from 2 different companies as it turned out) for graphic novels.
Our intention was to combine our orders to get the free shipping. But then we overbought because we got into a big discussion about our series.
My sister is collecting Threads of Time by Mi Young Noh, which has some beautiful artwork but is too violent for me. Edit: I was confusing Threads of Time with another title Samurai Deeper which my sister says is fairly rough.
She’s also collecting Queen’s Knight which I like a lot too. A teenage girl somehow gets drawn into a Medieval world and she is thought to be the lost queen. The man who discovers her pledges to be her knight. The artwork doesn’t completely appeal to me but it’s very cute.
She decided to start collecting Absolute Boyfriend by Yuu Watase which I liked at first. think Watase lost her way by the end.
We started talking and she asked me if I wanted her DN Angel (Yukiru Sugisaki) collection, she’s got up to volume 10. She said she there was too much Daisuke and not enough Dark. But…she wanted my Aishiteruze Baby (Yoko Maki) and Kare First Love (Kaho Miyasaka) in return. I enjoy Aishiteruze Baby but as I long as I can read it I don’t need to keep it.
Kare First Love is a different kettle of fish. I love makeover stories as I’ve mentioned before and I loved the beginning. Karin was more interesting as an ugly duckling than she is as a pretty girl and I have neglected the series for awhile. So, I told her she could have Aishiteruze Baby (I bought 2 more volumes for her to make it fair) but I’d have to see how Kare First Love ends.
I got a Tramps Like Us (AKA Kimi wa Petto) by Yayoi Ogawa. I like Sumire a lot – she’s only grown up woman protagonist that I’ve encountered in manga. I wish there were more scenes of her at work, those are the best parts.
Also Delicious Seasons by Rainbow Buddy- a cooking school romance. Should be fun.
Honey Mustard by Ho-Kyung Yeo. A girl accidentally kisses the wrong man and now has to marry him.
