So, I am (finally) back at my university place or what I call my home by now. Family meetings are so annoying if they last longer than 3 days. Sigh. Nothing changed here, except now there’s even more university work to do, so much anime/manga related news to catch up with and obviously post something…of “substance” (Who am I fooling here?!).

I will start with the January release list and because it’s so small, I will add my shopping list as well. Most of the manga have been released already (Tokyopop’s and Carlsen’s) and I only wrote a post containing Carlsen’s titles, so you can find the rest below the cut.
