Ah, I never thought I would be MIL (missing in laziness) for so long. I’m done with my exams as well as my extended essays (they were due to the end of march). I guess I’m behind a few months; after all this is still my February shopping list. Then again this was written on May the 5th. I’m not sure how active I will stay as I lost most of my motivation to read manga. They just seem boring to me. I’m reading occasionally, but not as much as I used to and I don’t enjoy it as much as well. And this blog is now more like a burden than an enjoyment, sigh. (I don’t know where to put my manga anyway, I have NO SPACE!)

Here’s my very late shopping list for December and my just-in-time list for January. Sadly, amazon just had to deliver my December orders after I left for my home town and by now the mail probably has been already sent back, because I didn’t fetch them within the 7-day period. Oh well, guess I’ll have to order them again. No money lost.

Grubby just won the World Cyber Games in a very close and epic encounter against his clan mate Moon. Now that most of the eSport events this year are over I’ll have more time for manga again. This month looks slim with only 5 manga on my list, but Solanin counts for 2 and Ikkyu should count for 1.5 so it settles at a nice amount of reading material.

My vacation is over. I’m back at my own place and my second university week has started. Manga-wise, October looks to be very light. Only 4 manga are on my list. However, I recently bought Manga – Sixty Years of Japanese Comics by Paul Gravett, as well as Ga-netchu! Das Manga / Anime Syndrom by various accomplished German and English journalists. I still have to finish reading both of them.

I forgot to post my August shopping list, so here it is, combined with the September shopping list. The September releases contain a wide range of different comic media and also a wide range of “sub-genre”. It’s a pretty awesome month. I wonder what October has in store for me.

No introductory paragraph, because I’m too lazy to think about one and am busy with exams! Oh, and if you wonder what happened to the “German Manga Charts”, I don’t know either, it seems there were no new charts released since February.

I wish my apartment had a terrace or a balcony. I could enjoy my manga, drink some ice coffee and get a bit more tanned at the same time! Alas, I don’t possess such a noble and bourgeois thing and have to settle with manga and an occasional coffee, while the sun shines through my windows. June certainly does provide me with quality manga. It has some promising continuations, mixed with some intriguing one-shots. And I hope they’ll live up to my expectations and deliver the relaxation, now that university work picks up pace.

Yup, yup it does! After an April without any manga purchases, May is full of them, and by full, I mean PACKED. 9 manga with two new series, lots of manly seinen action, spiced up with some mindless shounen; in other words: a great month! Here’s the shopping list for May:

So now that we all are familiar with the German releases in March, here’s my shopping list for the same month. It got rather heavy, with 9 definite purchases, 10 if you count Taniguchi’s release as two (2x price, 2x pages), that’s 3 more than last month and 8 more than in January!

My two weeks long exam period starts in ca. 9 days, but after I’m through with them, I can – at last read manga again! I’ll also have more time to finish off some review drafts, which have been piling up for a while now. January was a very light month, with only two titles on my list, but February is the opposite with 7 definite purchases and 3 possible ones. Below you can find the list –same procedure as every year shopping list entry (ref. to this)
