TGIF! Well, a day [or two] late but I don’t care lol. Gonna finish what I have started, starting from the series I have on hand. So, yesterday I went over to ChuangYi’s office at;
Blk 1003 Bukit Merah Central
Redhill Industrial Estate
(Operating hours: 9:00am – 6:30pm, Monday to Friday.)
And purchase the backlogs from 2 years ago xD Took me an hour plus to get there from my jungle orz. It was tiring but I got what I wanted except for 2 books which are out of stock. Whelp, I’ll just pop by Comics Connection to see if they have what I want available there.
|[Left to Right] Vampire Knight, La Corda d’ Oro, Twinkle Stars, Otomen
Full Metal Panic! Sigma, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, World Embryo, S.A
Full Metal Alchemist, Fushigi Yuugi – Genbu Kaiden, Ouran High Host Club, Neon Genesis Evangelion
The nice guy gave me a 20% discount \O/ so I pretty much got a dollar plus off each book. Kinda disappointed that they have issues with continuing Magister Negi Magi. After all I own 27 volumes published by them and now I have to turn to the Kodansha Comics version. Anyways, I got the rest via Amazon along with Ai Ore! [HEHE] and Morinaga Miruku’s Girl Friends! Ugh, I can feel the headache coming with the shipping charges vPOST is gonna bill me. My boomer and hunter plushies [already own the tank] I ordered from Valve Store already costed me $50+ in shipping .. another 20 books is gonna be double or triple that amount ;A; Oh well, I’ll post more about it once the parcel arrives =D
Now on to updates, as you can see, I changed the template which I hope is tidier and better looking :3
Oh I did this screenshot last week, I’ve added icon links to my twitch, youtube and steam accounts next to the top banner. Sometimes I’ll broadcast a game or two of my plays in Island’s L4D1/2 servers, you can join us if you like xD. Youtube has the collection of my Hanabira tutorials and random L4D or League of Legends recordings.
I have MIA for so long and still gotta update my links page and stuff, meh I’ll get to them when I remember to hehe. [Probably neber]
Hmm, you can read Tsubomi’s webcomic here, [like Ch8 of Notes from the Garden of Lilies and finale of The Secret Recipe] There’s also a new yuri title named Citrus which is currently serialized in Yuri Hime with really nice artwork. I’ve ‘stolen’ an image from the author’s tweet [Saburouta] on the side –> There are 5 images and they’re all worth a save in your Citrus folder ;D But I like this image the most haha, Yuzu sure is stronger than she looks lol. You can grab chapter 1 and 2 from your friendly Dynasty Reader.
Not too long ago, I’ve finished PSYCHO-PASS and I’m pleased to see a canon yuri couple =O after tons of speculations from a certain episode 2 xD. There are quite a bit of fan arts and short strips revolving around Shion x Yayoi like this by Mutou and more at this yamibo thread.
That’s all I have for today. See ya!

Hey there! Changed the blog template, it looks kinda like before but the sidebar is now on the left hand side HEHE. The rest are basically the same, I’m lazy to edit the template anymore. Maybe when I’m free in the next free days, I’ll update some of the the pages.
So I has some stuff I got from Amazon Japan and boy, Amazon Japan sure is fast, I will never use vPOST Japan again LOL. I ordered on Monday and by Thursday, I got everything The shipping charges are around the same, maybe $10+/- more than vPOST charges. I’m willing to pay that amount to get it in 3 days =^=
|[Top Left to Right]: 前略、百合の園より [Zenryaku, Yuri no Sono Yori aka Notes From The Garden Of Lilies] #1, あさがおと加瀬さん [Asagao to Kase-san], Girls Love -strawberry milk shake-
[Mid Left to Right]: 失楽園 [Shitsurakuen] #5, #6 [END], くちびるためいきさくらいろ [Kuchibiru Tameiki Sakurairo aka Kisses, Sighs, and Cherry Blossoms Pink] #1, #2
[Bottom Left to Right]: キャンディ [Candy] #1, #2, ブルーフレンド [Blue Friend] #2, #3, あいがある-I girl- [Ai Gaaru -I girl-] #1
Mostly old stuff from last year to finish up my series collection. So, I’ll just talk a little about Ai Gaaru and the extras of Candy since the scanlations of the rest can be found on Dynasty Reader =w=
=o The artwork is not bad, shoujo-ish, kinda reminds me of Takahashi Itsumi’s [Mangaka of Love Flag Girls! and Itoshi o Tome - Kimi ga Kokoro wa] art but better xD The story started with this 26 year old psstvirginpsst OL [Office Lady], Kaga Maki who has never fallen in love before in her life. One day, she was suddenly asked by her twin brother, Kaga Miki to take over his job as a teacher in a girls’ school. Dressed up and hair styled like her brother, Maki made her way to girls’ school entrance and almost chickened out. But for her brother! She persevered.
However, before the day even started, she realized her brother is a horny bastard LOL who made the students call ‘I love you’ a pun on ‘Here’ during roll call. As the day went on, she was pushed down and confessed by girls left and right who were seemly seduced by her dear brother lol. For example, her brother offered to take one of his student’s virginity! And now the girl is here to redeem that offer xD Well, it’s still too early to see how this story is going but it’s just full of fluffy fan service :3
And you can preview a free Chapter 1 of Ai Gaaru here.
The extras from Candy kinda reveals a little bit more on the daily lives of Miyamoto Kanan and Bessho Chiaki as they grew up and pursue their dreams. In one of the extras, Chiaki came home late from work that night and found Kanan fast asleep. As she was warming up her dinner, Kanan woke up and hugged her. As expected, it felt way better awake than when Chiaki’s asleep xD
This extra kinda warps up the love triangle between Kanan, Chiaki and Nonomiya. We see Nonomiya who had pushed Kanan down and straddled on top of her. Nonomiya is happy that Chiaki is now of out the picture as she has graduated and that Kanan looks good with her hair grown out. However Kanan is willing to wait for Chiaki who has given her a ring as a promise to return after her studies overseas. It was then that Nonomiya realized that she could never steal the heart of Kanan from Chiaki and well .. -insert cries and tears-
A cute young Kanan! Ichijou is pissed because she was asked by the teacher to return a music score. As she made her way to the music room, she remembered that Kanan used to hate piano lessons and wanted to give up. Nearing the music room, she heard piano sounds and was surprised to see Kanan and Chiaki in there. It seems like Kanan never gave up on piano and played well, impressing Chiaki. While Chiaki plays, Kanan is enthralled by Chiaki’s hair and softly kissed her cheek.
Needless to say, Ichijou got pissed at the lovey-dovey scene, slotted the music score in between the doors and went home.
Eh, sorry for the dates on the images, I used my digital camera to take them since my iphone died. Which is a pretty good thing since I started re-reading some of my manga haha and it gave me a hard kick to start blogging again. I also went on a ‘add EVERYTHING to shopping cart’ spree I have my eyes set on the English versions of Girl Friends and also up coming Kisses, Sighs, and Cherry Blossoms Pink by Morinaga Miruku. The Amazon links are on the top right hand side listed as my Must/Recommended buys :3 So get them if you haven’t!
Hmmm that’s it I guess, I have quite a few planned blog posts for the next few weeks like a review of Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke o – Lovers of the Atelier, my not very otaku? corner part 3, the return of IchigoYuri TGIF Updates with reviews on random yurilicious scanlations and maybe PSYCHO-PASS [Shion x Yayoi cannon made my day].

A late night post because I was busy gaming xD Borderlands is addictiveeee!!! Now I have a Lvl 30 Soldier and a Lvl 18 Berserker [Named ilovepain and coincidentally he also loves pain lol] \O/ Also I got my parcel last Sunday =o= didn’t know Singpost delivered stuff on Sundays … GOOD FOR THEM AND ME!! *happy*
Anyways, I’m interested in how many people will be willing to join a contest in my blog and if the response is overwhelming, I’ll consider purchasing 2 more Girl Friends Drama CDs and giving them out as prizes =D. Post your suggestions in the comment section for the nature [Fanart, fanfic, trivial etc] of the contest as well. This poll ends on May 31 2011.
And uuhh, I opened my GF Drama CD so I won’t be giving that as a prize lol no worries. Will order 2 more if there’s a good response =3
Nobara no Mori no Otometachi turned out to be an interesting read, good character twist [kinda] for the supposedly boring, goody-two-shoes Ojou-sama type and I lol-ed at the cute side story in V2 xD Won’t wanna spoil you much heh. All I can say ‘Poor Izumi’ haha. Priced at ￥420, the manga is kinda small compared to Ichijinsha’s ￥900 manga, barely 3/4 of the latter’s size. Oh, I also got an oldie for ￥1 haha not including shipping charges but it’s still okay.
‘Himitsu no Hanazono’ is probably one of my first few gender bender/cross dressing shoujo-ai manga with a happy [kinda] ending whereas gender doesn’t really matter between the two characters and even if Sakuya’s a guy, he(she) is a hot one xD. MMmmm reminds me of another Sakuya from Kaikan Phrase. Oh, this is a true gem so I’m happy to own it.
Here’s a little incentive.
And another more.
And I’m tired. Nights all! Looking forward to your suggestions and comments!
