    Yeah, it's only May 1st, but I just placed an order recently for volumes 1-6 of Sketchbook at CD Japan. Thus with the already gotten volume 7, I need only to get the bonus volume to be caught up.

    In any case, as of current I have the following.....


    On Order
    • K-ON! 3
    • Ichiroh 5
    • Yotsuba 10
    • Sunshine Sketch 5
    • Lucky Star 8
    • Sketchbook 1
    • Sketchbook 2
    • Sketchbook 3
    • Sketchbook 4
    • Sketchbook 5
    • Sketchbook 6



    Let's see which if any will ship in May.

        Negima 29 is on preorder, and on a whim, I decided to go for the omnibus of Hayate X Blade. Just to see how it is. I expect good things since several people here love it.

                  The six ordered volumes of Sketchbook have come and that means along with the seventh, I have all of them. Ok, I don't have that bonus or whatever volume, and they'll probably release volume 8 later this year. Regardless, I still made progress, so yay. Oh, and as I skim the volumes I see bookmarks inside the volumes.

                  Volume 1: Inuo/Ryo and Fu. Volume 2: Nothing in there. Volume 3: Kuma/Haduki (Yeah, they use a D instead of Z). Volume 4: Buchi/Hiyori. Volume 5: Nothing in there. Volume 6: Nothing in there. Well, three bookmarks is better than the zero I expected. Would have been nice if one was Natsumi.

                    Re: May 2011 Purchase Thead

                    Wound up getting the following at Toronto Comic Arts Fest last weekend:

                    - Genkaku Picasso Vol. 1-3
                    - Lychee Light Club
                    - Peepo Choo Vol. 1-3

                    The Usamaru Furuya books also got signed. Whoo!

                    Anime North's coming out, so I may be making manga purchases there. Last year I opted to pick up Emma before CMX's shutdown (thank God I did!). This year may wind up being Kare Kano.

                      Re: May 2011 Purchase Thead

                      I got five volumes this month at one go (I suppose that's what being away on vacation for a good part of the month does):

                      7 Billion Needles 4 (it's nice to finish a series, and I enjoyed this one, including its retro-styled North American covers)
                      Twin Spica 7 (my standout title for this month)
                      Silent Mobius 4 (I was sort of surprised to see this when I did, actually; I'd lost track of when it was coming out)
                      Fairy Tail 13 (and so I move from buying from Del Rey Manga to buying from Kodansha Comics)
                      Cross Game 3 (it stings a bit that I haven't read the first two omnibuses, especially with it having been discussed on manga weblogs, but it is the one title from Viz I'm still buying)

                          I was going to start ordering Natsume's Book of Friends because of the Viz sale, but I decided to hold it off until I made a dent on my DVD/BD backlog.

                            Apparently, I have a thing for vampire girls. Enough to invest in a dropped series I've long wanted that probably has no hope of being rescued, even. I thought I'd never do such a thing, but I kind of blame this cute card I saw at Mandarake, and some sales last week for pushing me.

                            I wonder what the deal with Rozen Maiden is. Either it's so awesome that no one wants to get rid of it, or it got *one* very short print run...or maybe even some combination of the two. Collecting the rest of this is going to be painful--most of the remaining volumes are decently to well over MSRP. I don't know if I should bother and just be happy with my anime DVDs unless someone decides to rescue it...
