You just have to wonder if Nakamura planned on that in the first place… Scary shit… Anyway, I’ve been getting engrossed in and have been blazing through the saga of recluce. It’s really good fun. Just finished 5 and still got a lot more to go through. The books jump around a time period of more than a thousand years covering several storylines. The jumping reminds me of the first season of Haruhi. Of course, my bookshop doesn’t have the entire collection at once, but it has a cool automated kiosk search system and if you search for a book it doesn’t have, you can find the book in the store in a matter of days or a week. Pretty cool. As tempting as it is to read it in chronological order, I’m trying to follow the recommended publication order as close as I can manage. Inadvertently skipped around a bit and spoiled myself to the ending of the third book when a character mentions in passing what that guy did as part of a legend… lol.
Also, I tried scanning a manga I bought for fun, Comic Studio (こみっく☆すたじお) I’m getting readable scans, but they’re a little crappier than I’d like. Then again, this is craptastic scans… lol…. I might try doing a chapter of that since no one else is doing it and I can’t find any raws online. At least, so far. Please do enlighten me if i’m mistaken though.
