Sadly, the monthly budget doesn't allow me to abscond with everything I want (more so now); I have to choose which ones I plonk down at the cashier. While some are not as Should I? Should I?? high maintenance as others, others are a no-brainer. For instance, it was given that I would get Goong 15 when it released, especially after Park SoHee left us with that angsty cliffie at the close of volume 14 (which led me to talking the woman beside me into buying both volumes in one go ^^)
- Angel from The End by Kurahashi Erika | volume 3 of 4
- Goong by Park SoHee | volume 15 of 17+
- Never Give Up (Nebagiba!) 13 of 13 by Mutou Hiromu [Finale]
- Special A 8 of 14+ by Minami Maki
- [Premiere] Strawberry Love (Ichigo Doumei) 1 of 2+ by Morishita Nodoka
- [Premiere] W-Change!! 1 of 5 by Matsuba Hiro
Since I've yet to finish any volume, this post doubles up as Manga Beside, the second.
This is more like it; I knew that shōjo/soonjung portion from the last Ex libris post was approaching anomalous. This Get, their share rises to over 83 percent, an increase of 19 percentage points from my last spree. The one shōnen (W-Change!!) down from four titles a week ago constitutes the remaining 17 percent of the current acquisitions total.
By original publisher
This is also par for the course for me: at 33-plus percent owing to Nebagiba! and Special A, Hakusensha rules! (Hana to Yume, specifically.) The other publishing houses—Shueisha (Angel from The End or Seikimatsu no Angel), Seoul Cultural (Goong), Kodansha (Strawberry Love or Ichigo Doumei), and Mag Garden (W-Change!!)—each contribute about 17 percent. Note the lack of a Shogakukan title, considering that these are all m&c! manga.
