Before anything else, cavechan
, just a heads up, another team (blackabyssteam
) has picked up Shiki. (Finally, this manga is getting some attention, because we know it's severely lacking that despite how good it is.) So far, the team has scanlated only chapter 12. Still, can't wait for the SC tankoubon scans.:D
Okay so chapter twelve shifts the story back to Toshio again. Poor Toshio. He really looks like shit now. He has dark circles under his eyes and looks like he ha forgotten what a razor is. But it's really understandable why the guy has no time to maintain his physical appearance, considering what he has to deal with. And it seems they have become an unhealthy obsession for him. I saw last month's Chinese raw and while I don't understand any Chinese, the pictures already say it all. It was a very difficult moment for Toshio because it involved someone dear to him and what made it even worse was that Toshio knew he had no choice but to do it. He had to set aside his personal feelings for what could be the first step towards the salvation of everyone living in Sotoba.
On the otherhand, Muroi is looking mighty fine as always. :D But I can't help but think that he has a certain connection to the Kanamesa people, aside from his chummy relationship with Sunako. Speaking of Sunako, she's looking creepy as usual. I love her though, and her fashion sense. ( Cut for spoilersCollapse )
Overall, Chapter 12 was a good chapter. And I think Ikumi-san is pretty cool. :D
Meanwhile, RoT's 290th chapter was finally uploaded this morning! I'm crying out of joy because I waited for this chapter to be uploaded in Baidu for nearly three weeks. 291 even got uploaded first. Anyway, the scanlation for this chapter was also done this afternoon. Shodar really didn't waste anytime and us loyal followers of the series are really grateful for the fast editing. :D And we are grateful for another dose (albeit short) of Organizer a.k. Wise Man Lu! Also, add Sun Ce and Zhou Yu to the mix, and I am a very happy reader. :D
I think Organizer Lu's early appearance has made the Sun Ce/Yu Ji storyline even more interesting than it already is, especially with the internal and external strategies he has set up. I no longer want to speculate as to how the recent events could lead to Sun Ce's demise because things have gone even more complicated and I don't want to stress myself thinking all about it. XD I'll just wait for the next chapters.
Meanwhile, why wasn't Zhongda and Organizer Lu's enounter shown further? They must have talked after Organizer Lu and his men saved Zhongda right?
As for Outlaws of the Marsh, I'm already on the 29th Chapter and I just noticed one thing---WHY ARE ALL THE WIVES IN THIS NOVEL GREEDY, ADULTEROUS, UNGRATEFUL, SCHEMING BITCHES WHO LOVE MAKING THEIR HUSBANDS LIVES MISERABLE? There's one who isn't but she kills people and turns them into dumplings.(But ILU,Lady Sun!) There's also another one who is actually normal and is very loyal to her husband--but she hung herself. 0_0
On a different note, I visited HelloQuizzy again and you know what that means. ( The Official Myers-Briggs Personality TestCollapse )
