#ReadManga18 | Update no.2 | Feb 2018

I thought I had posted this already! I’m a bit late in putting this together. But, this is the next batch of titles that I’ve read for my #ReadManga18 yearly reading challenge that I am hosting. I think there are still a few of you who are participating with me as well. If you’ve been posting about this challenge, please leave a link down below so I can go and follow your progress.

absolute boyfriendChallenge #5 : A Romance Manga.

Absolute Boyfriend, volumes 1-6 by Yuu Watase. 

This is a challenge to read any manga with romance in it. Since MOST manga have some romantic elements in them, I could have picked just about anything. I am also reading this as part of my monthly “shelf challenge”.

I’ve read this title before, but it’s not one that I pick up often. I think I’ve only read it 2 or 3 times. This is a shōjo manga from Viz’s Shojo Beat Manga imprint. It basically features a girl who is very unlucky in love. When she is feeling her lowest, she is given access to a secret website where she can buy “love” in the form of a human-like sex doll. In her haste to order, she ends up adding in every conceivable trait you’d wish for in a boyfriend… and ends up ordering a “super boyfriend”.

Manga Reading Wrap-Up | Feb 2018

Here’s everything I read in the month of February… with commentary!


★★★★ 5 Star Reads:

Dolis by Maki Kusumoto. Multilayered. Complicated. Twisted. Beautiful. Compelling. Begs to be Re-read.

The Park Bench by Chabouté. Wordless and wonderful! The poignant story of an object, illustrated in stark black/white contrast. Gorgeous book! Continue reading

Most Anticipated Manga – Winter 2017/2018

These are my top 10 most anticipated new manga releasing in Winter 2017/2018 (or from December 2017 to March 2018). At this point, I don’t know how many of these I will be able to collect, but these are certainly the ones I am most eager to pick up!

 

Takane & Hana by Yuki Shiwasu. I’ve already got this title pre-ordered. I don’t know much about it, except that a few people I follow on twitter were excited about the release announcement. I don’t actually want to know what this is about before I read it. But, I’ll let you know what I think, when I get to it.

Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card by Clamp. Pretty excited about this new installment in the Cardcaptor Sakura series. I’ve had a chance to flip through this at Chapters, and the art has definitely been updated for this new series (I’m not sure yet how I feel about that). This title is already out, but I’m going to hold out for a bit to see if my sister won’t pick this up instead. Continue reading
