An OK ToC for me this week. Poor Bleach. Assassination Classroom's first anniversary is next week. Boy, does time fly! More details about Nisekoi's anime will be in the next issue, and I'm also hearing that Sket Dance is ending next week... We've also got some new series starting up over the next few weeks. We've got Kuro Clock (probably supernatural, never heard of the author), Hime Doll (sounds Ecchi) and Ginga Patrol Jako, which is probably something to do with space. It's also by Akira Toriyama, who I've never even heard of. I assume this is his first work. Nevertheless, I wish all of them the best of luck with their new series. And this also means some more series are getting the cut to make room. My money would be on Sket Dance, if rumours are correct, Koisuru Edison and Cross Manage.

Things are getting pretty stale around here, so I'm gonna be making a few changes. Starting from next month, I'm gonna have a Manga of the Month theme, and shall change my display picture and background to promote said manga. Next month's manga will be... *drumroll* Kuroko no Basket!

Also, I wonder if I should start showing the rankings of manga from as far as 5 issues back, so we can see trends in the rankings and therefore make easier judgements. What do you guys think? Should I start doing that, or stick to his format? Let me know in the comments. As always, thanks for reading! See you next week! ^.^

*OFF TOPIC* So, following on from Microsoft's u-turn on their DRM, always online and backwards compatibility policies, will this motivate you to get the Xbox One? Or will you not give Microsoft a second chance? If not, which consoles are you going with next-gen? For me, it's looking like Wii U and PS4 so far... Let me know your thoughts!

Ahhh, it feels so good to be back! I'm sorry I've been away for so long, there were things in my life I had to prioritise and deal with, but now I'm freeeee!!! 

Phwoar, Assassination Classroom is tearing up the ToC like a BBW's ass! One Piece is absent again, which sucks, but as long as Oda is ok then that's all that matters. Not much else I can say seeing as I've been away from manga for so long. I know that Hungry Joker and Kiruko-san have been cancelled, can anybody fill me in on what's happened while I've been away? Any shocks? Surges? Slumps? What are the new series like?

Thanks for reading, see you next week! ^.^

*OFF TOPIC* Any football/soccer fans on here? I sure am liking the look of Man United's first 5 fixtures. I have every faith that Moyes will do just fine and land us our 21st title! What do you think of your team's fixtures?

Back from the Dead


Yes, I am back. I'm sorry for neglecting you guys, my little piglets. This week, everything should resume normally, so you can start suckling on my teats again. Now let the good times roll! It's not like I have THAT much catching up to do anyway...
