Today I received my fourth package for May, sent on the 16th of May from Japan, as it contained tankobon collecting series from Weekly Shonen Magazine which are always published around the 17th of the month.
I have bought a lot this month, so I will have to cut back a bit next month. The main reason for my buying spree for May is the favourable exchange rate the Japanese Yen is affected by, which made me buy almost the entire Naruto backlog I had. I owned 1-20 and 64, but after my purchases I own 1-58 and 64.
This picture shows the majority of what I received — of course I had to forget three books from my buying list to include in the photo. Check out the list and see for yourself which manga I also bought:
- Chotto Morimashita 1
- Dr. Duo 5 (Series ended)
- Fairy Tail 37
- Majimoji Rurumo Makai-hen 4 (Series ended)
- Nanatsu no Taizai 2
- Naruto 21-58
- Shinmai Fukei Kiruko-san 2
- Sket Dance 21-28
- Slime-san to Yuusha Kenkyuubu 2
- Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo 6
Of new releases, Shueisha only had one, Shinmai Fukei Kiruko-san volume 2, a series which is now cancelled and will soon release its third and ultimate volume. From Kodansha, I bought some released in April and some in May. From now on I will make one order which will ship in the beginning of the month, containing Jump tankobon, and another order shipping in the middle of the month, containing Kodansha tankobon.
The above photo shows the complete collection of Majimoji Rurumo Makai-hen, as it ended with volume 4. I haven’t read the original Majimoji Rurumo, but I enjoyed the first three volumes of Makai-hen nonetheless.
Below I have taken a picture of what is now a complete collection of Dr. Duo, an absolutely great series in Weekly Shonen Magazine. Unfortunately, the readers can’t have enjoyed it as much as I have enjoyed reading the tankobon, so it has already ended in five volumes.
In June, my Naruto collection will be up to date as well, as I have ordered the remaining five books. I also jumped on the Shingeki no Kyojin wagon and ordered 1-7 and the Shingeki no Kyojin high school book. Can’t wait to get those as well!
For the time being I am reading Fairy Tail, currently on book 32. I will interrupt Fairy Tail with Dr. Duo 5, Slime-san to Yuusha Kenkyuubu 2 and Chotto Morimashita 1 of course, but soon I will be up to date in the actual story of Fairy Tail too, I look very much forward to that.
