Started Fairy Tail, continued on a bit with HunterxHunter, read up to the latest chapter of Kurogane (the one about kendo, not the numerous other ones) and just finished the latest chapter of Seiyuu-ka! which is always pretty cool. A guy in my year reads a lot of shounen manga, and sometimes comments about them to me but I haven't really read any of the ones that he reads (mostly the really popular shounen manga like One Piece and Bleach and such) -_- Though he did say that Fairy Tale is his favourite after he saw me reading it, commented that the fighting scenes were great and that Lucy was absolutely useless.
Also, I am happy to find the the Kagerou Days
manga is finally up! The Kagerou project
is basically a series of (Vocaloid, both Miku and IA) songs by Shizen no Teki-P (also known as Jin) in an album, Children Records. They tell the story of a whole bunch of characters in a group called the Mekakushi Dan set in modern day Japan. Mekakushi means 'blindfold' and most of them have powers related to sight and perception.
I love all of the songs on the album, but Kagerou Days
, Headphone Actor
, Konoha's State of the World
, Children Record
and the slightly slower Shinigami Records
are ones that will give you a taste of it (well, I'd reccomend all of them, but I can't just link the whole album here).
[EDIT] Or you can just listen to the album crossfade
. Saves time, no?
What does this all have to do with it? Well, part of the Kagerou Project is also a light novel, which I dearly wish to be translated into English. An anime of the project is in the works as well. And the manga, well, the manga is just amazing - what's out of it anyway. YOU MUST CHECK IT OUT if you have time.
