don't even know hat it is, picked it up because of the cute looking cover.
plz don't judge - it's my guilty pleasure and the early archs don't have decent scans
again, don't know what the fuck it is, I think it doesn't even have scans. did some research, apparently it's a diving sports manga and since I loved Glaucos I picked it up.
ended up paying more than planned but oh well.
I know localized manga upset /a/ but the Nausicaä box set is better than any japanese release, so fuck it!
From 1994, but it's first time it's been printed in English.
No pic right now. I don't have it with me, but it's here: http://snubpollard.tumblr.com/post/112363868362/basset-hound-action-scene-omg-seraphim-266613336
Oshii sure likes that dog.
>not reading previous works first
It won't hold up. E21 is a lovely read, and has great art. But when you compare it to OPM it looks like shit. Even the comedy faces bits.
But as a body of work E21 is pretty solid. Enjoy, anon.
I want to pick up Seraphim soon. I've liked the rest of Kon's stuff so far.
not that guy, but if you buy a lot of used stuff on ebay and invest some time in searching for best deals you can amass a collection like that easily even if you don't have that high a budget.
I haven't read A Drifting Life yet, but Genkaku Picasso was pretty good. The art is gorgeous and the story is passable, if not a little sappy from time to time. As for Showa, I'm going to get the rest of the volumes when the final one is released.
A Drifting Life is good, not fantastic but most definitely enjoyable and informative. I think it's main value is as a context piece for early manga publishing practices, the Gekiga movement and Tatsumi's Black Blizzard.

What are you some kind of awful faggot?
I have 50+ volumes of unread manga sitting right next to my bed
I got back from a 10 day trip to Japan a couple weeks ago.
I bought the TTGL set "used" (some light damage on the external packaging, actual product is flawless) for $350.
I got an assload of Nichijou merchandise. A copy of Helvetica Standard, an issue of vol. 1 of the manga, the BD set, and a set of playing cards from the KyoAni store in Kyoto.
I bought three promotional posters from a store that sells old posters for anything... Idols, anime, games. I saw a ton of PS2 advertisement posters in there, but the three I got were Ping Pong, Nichijou, and
No pics of the posters because they're out getting framed right now.
what's cheaper, putting shit in your luggage or sending it to your home adress via regular shipping?
mfw when suitcase lock breaks and h-manga shower all over normie pedestrians and flight attendants
I only brought 4 days worth of clothes for a two week trip (spent 4 days in South Korea), so I had easily a third of my luggage space open in my checked bag. I flew United and my checked bag was free, I didn't have a carry on.
I did mail souvenirs back to my hometown, though. It was maybe 5 pounds of stuff.
Slowest transportation and lowest insurance coverage. It cost, like, $35 total and it still hasn't gotten to my parents.
Got it a day early too, pissed off a few people that I did for some reason.
