What's New

Now that I'm back from the wilds, the mascot is holding down my suitcase so her wayward father doesn't go off again. (Nobody tell her about my business trip next week.) Meanwhile, we've got girls getting into trouble in Chapter 21 of EM. Surely nothing can go wrong. Remember to whet your appetite for the coming reviews. Stay tuned.

You may remember Duke Cronos walking into a big bloody mess in the throne room during the First Battle of Maximilion back in TTWC1. Ever wonder how it got that way? Well, you're about to find out in Carpos' Chapter 3 of TTWC3. Look for more EM and some hungry reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

I apologize for all the delays, but at long last, here it is: the conclusion (as of now) of my coverage of the Yotsuba&1 manga. We've got reviews of the remainder of my collection. Without further ado, here's Volume 7, Volume 8, Volume 9, Volume 10, Volume 11, and Volume 12. I'll be following this post with the next chapter of TTWC3 shortly and later in the week I'll have more EM and begin my coverage of the Ranma 1/2 manga plus some films that'll make you ask yourself, "Do I feel hungry?" Stay tuned.

Our gang has taken quite the beating over the course of the story, but now it's their turn to strike back in Chapter 20 of JJ. In other news, I'm happy to announce that I've gotten those much-delayed Yotsuba&! reviews written, so you can be looking for that in the next two or three days. Stay tuned.

I know, I know, you're wondering where those Yostuba&! reviews are. I still haven't written three of them. Things have been rather hectic out here in the wilds. And I'm running behind on this week's stuff as well. It'd be tempting to let things lapse, but I'm going to try to correct the course. So, without further ado, let's get on with the show. The conquest of Hebertos was a cakewalk, so it should be easy to claim a city that's already strongly leaning toward the rebels, right? Well, find out in Carpos' Chapter 2 of TTWC3. I've got more JJ coming up and we'll be making up for those absent reviews. Stay tuned.

Just look at those charming eyes. What's going on in her head, I wonder. Hopefully not the same thing Priscilla's thinking about or things are going to get all kinds of awkward. She opts to take advantage of Giger's emotional vulnerability in Chapter 20 of EM. We're getting set up for the home stretch. In the meantime, look for reviews in a couple days. Stay tuned.

The Traitor Prince cements his title and crosses the point of no return in Carpos' Chapter 1 of TTWC3. Look for EM and reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

Now that we're out of the water, I've got those X-Men reviews I mentioned a couple weeks back. To round out our selection (minus Apocalypse), we've got X-Men, X-Men 2, X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Unfortunately, those of you looking forward to a resumption of my Yotsuba&! coverage are going to be disappointed. My time allotment doesn't work the same out here in the wilds, so I haven't had the chance to catch up on writing my backlog. (I've prioritized what writing time I have toward story content, as I should.) My goal is to make it up to you by reviewing all six remaining volumes in my collection next week. Also be looking for more TTWC3 and EM. Stay tuned.

The Junker Jorg crew would probably welcome an expedition to the subtropics right about now, but, alas, it's not to be. There's a different plan being cooked up for them in Chapter 19 of JJ. Reviews are coming up in the next couple days. Stay tuned.

We've met our new lead character before. We saw him tormenting his sister back in TTWC1, but now you can see things from the Traitor Prince's perspective in Carpos' prologue of TTWC3. He's not a very likable sort, but you may find his trials and travails to be interesting. More JJ and X-Men reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

Just when you thought it was safe to get back into the water, Palidor Media brings you reviews of Jaws, Jaws II, Jaws III, and Jaws: The Revenge. Shark Week may be over, but we've got the great grandpappy of the killer shark subgenre. I don't have any Yotsuba&! for you this week either. I even went to the trouble of bringing the tankoubon I have to review to the wilds with me, but I'm in a bit of a time crunch. I'll try to be sure to resume coverage next week along with those X-Men reviews. We've also got more TTWC3 and JJ coming up. Stay tuned.
