Scanlation Groups are awesome! Saturday, Dec 30 2006 

Today I’ll be sending all my love out to the Vampire Knights scanlation group for releasing two of the niftiest christmas download packages ever!

These guys slaved away to bring us the entire volume 8 of ‘Ouran’, new chapters of ‘Trinity Blood’, ‘Saiunkoku Monogatari’, ‘Little Witch’s Diary’ and some new projects such as ‘Rustblaster’ and ‘Kaze Hikaru’ which are both awesome!

Thanks everyone at VK! You guys are the best! 🙂

Finalised Anime Viewing List for 2006/07! Saturday, Dec 30 2006 

Figured I should probably post this before the new year! This is the list of anime I’ve decided on – finally – and hopefully that’s it!  So, here we go! Pics to be added later (seeing as I now know how to add them, hehehe 😉 )

  • D. Gray-Man
  • Death Note
  • Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
  • Ghost Hunt
  • La Corda d’Oro ~Primo Passo~
  • Le Chevalier d’Eon
  • Negima!?
  • Pumpkin Scissors
  • Red Garden
  • Saiunkoku Monogatari
  • Shounen Onmyouji

That’s it! Fingers crossed, that’s all I’ll be watching this season – my eyes are wearing out from reading all the subs, hehehe 🙂

Madman, what’s going on?! Tuesday, Dec 19 2006 

I was looking through my manga shelf a couple of days ago, thinking ‘Gee, I haven’t bought a copy of Fruits Basket in ages…’ So I got online and headed over to the Madman website (www.madman.com.au) to see when the next release date was.

Fruits Basket Volume 21 doesn’t come out until March 10th next year…

I think my screams of horror could be heard a couple of suburbs away – the last Volume, #20, went on sale on the 11th of October – that’s two months ago, for those of you actually following along 🙂

So why the five month gap? Generally there’s been a month between volumes, and in the beginning they were actually releasing 2 volumes a month, one at the beginning and one near the end.

Then I decided to check out some of the other release dates on stuff I’m interested in.

Vampire Knight (Chuang Yi edition):

Volume 01 and 02 – 10th February 2007

Ouran High Host Club (Chuang Yi edition):

Volume 01 and 02 – 6th December 2006 (me = happy!)

Volume 03 and 04 – 10th February 2007 (me = dealing in my own way…)

Volume 05… – 10th March 2007 (me = seeing a pattern)

Ah ha! So it doesn’t actually look like it’s Madman’s fault after all – it’s the bloody publisher’s fault!

And next year it looks like things are going to be released on (or close to) the 10th of every month – which, as I mentioned earlier, I’ll be dealing with in my own way (download sites are bookmarked and ready to go – I use them as previews before I actually buy the real thing!)

But still, 5 months wait for Vol 21 of Fruits Basket! Why?! Why?!

*goes off depressed and has a little sleep* Ooh, mars bars!

Fruits Basket Chapter 127!! Finally!! Monday, Dec 11 2006 

For all you FB devotees who haven’t discovered it yet, the ever elusive Chapter 127 has finally been scanlated and uploaded here:

Woohoo! Now all we have to do is wait for 135 and 136, and then we’re done!

It’s kind of sad though… I can’t believe that after 23 volumes it’s finally over 😦

Ah well – guess I’ll just have to start buying all the ‘Ouran High School Host Club’ manga next!
