Hey everybody! Today’s post is another manga haul! Jessica and I recently went on our honey moon down to St. Augustine, Florida. While we were down there, we grabbed a ton of manga. Check it out!
As you can see, I scored quite a bit of Zatch Bell. Volumes 1-10 to be exact. This is so awesome for several reasons. For starters, I loved Zatch Bell as a kid. The anime anyway. I never read the manga. So I’m excited to give it a shot. Secondly, I bought this as a bundle. So I did not need to scour the web looking for each volume and I didn’t even have to pay shipping since it was in a local store. Shout out to Ancient City Toys in St. Augustine! For those wondering, Zatch Bell is now my 4th most collected manga series in just 1 purchase. Not bad!
The next round of pictures depicts mostly Jessica’s books. She took a shot on the Dot Hack Legend of the Twilight Volumes 1 and 2. She was only going to get volume 1 but I reminded her how hard it is to get mangas without resorting to the internet so she got the second one while we were there. Next she got Mahoromatic Volume 1. I also told her to get volume 2 of it for the same reason. Some how she forgot to grab it.
The last four books were bought at the local 2nd and Charles in St. Augustine. Two were mine. Two were Jessica. Jessica bought two discounted mangas named Fairy Tale Battle Royale (Sounds intense) and Faeries’ Landing (Doesn’t sound nearly as intense). I don’t know the first thing about these books.
I bought a discounted manga for myself, Dragon Drive. I also don’t know much about it. It does, however, look awesome. It will surely show up as a Manga Monday review soon enough. Lastly, I got The Way of the House Husband. This book sounds awesome. It stars a retired gangster member turned stay at home husband. This was a running joke with Jessica and myself as I was a full time student while she worked.
So there you have it! I think a pretty awesome, sound group of mangas that I am pumped to get around to.
Thank you all for reading! Have a great day!
The Manga hauls at this point have gotten completely out of order. So, again, this is one of my newer hauls (It might be the newest haul in fact.)
As you can see we scored 4 new mangas! 3 ongoing ones in Boruto, Dragon Ball Z, and Eden Zero. These are some of our favorite mangas to read. We also have 1 new comer to the collection, Black Torch.
Here’s the description straight from Amazon “Ninja and animal lover Jiro Azuma’s life is changed forever when he finds himself in the middle of a war of ninjas vs. demons. Jiro Azuma is descended from of a long line of shinobi, and he also can talk to animals. One day, he rescues a very unique black cat named Rago, a supernatural being, and is dragged into a secret supernatural war. Although he may appear rough-and-tumble, Jiro Azuma’s compassionate side emerges when it comes to the furry critters he can communicate with. But Jiro’s soft spot for animals gets him in major trouble when a suspicious stray cat fuses with him, granting him exceptional power but also dragging him into humanity’s hidden battle against powerful Japanese spirits, mononok“.
The cover and description honestly kind of leave a little to be desired, but as I was flipping through it I thought the art looked very solid. Sometimes I feel like I’m taking on more #1’s than I can handle. In recent memories I’ve taken on Jujutsu Kaisen, My Hero Academia and Eden Zero. I’ve enjoyed them all a lot and wanted to keep reading them. If I like Black Torch enough to justify getting more, I’ll probably have to cut something. Oh, well. Let’s wait and see how the book is before we make any rash decisions.
Thank you guys for reading and let me know what mangas you’ve picked up recently!
I think this is our second manga haul. These are some of our newest pickups and I’ll do some later ones that are like retroactive pick ups. So let’s get right into it.
These mangas are Gantz Volume #1, No Longer Human and Smashed. No Longer Human and Smashed are both from the mind of Junji Ito, one of the most respected horror mangaka. Gantz sounds like a trip and a half. I’m just going to quote Wikipedia on this one, because, honestly, they said it best. “It tells the story of Kei Kurono and Masaru Kato, both of whom died in a train accident and become part of a semi-posthumous “game” in which they and several other recently deceased people are forced to hunt down and kill aliens armed with a handful of futuristic items, equipment, and weaponry.” Like what!? This manga sounds insane. Smashed seems to be a collection of stories by Junji Ito including I Don’t Want to be a Ghost, Death Row Doorbell, and Smashed.
AOI House is an original English Manga about two guys that start living in a dorm with girls who are fans of yaoi. Blade of the Immortal follows the story of Manji who kill 1,000 evil men to become mortal again. It sounds kick butt and I bet my brother would enjoy it a lot. The Promised Neverland is a book Jessica has been looking for for a while now. The story revolves around orphaned kids as they learn the truth behind their purpose. I assume there is some level of magic elements in it.
So there you have it. These books were traded in to our work so we picked them up while we could. Be on the look out for more Manga Monday reviews and hauls!
A comic book Youtuber just put out a video where he bought 100,000 comic books. That’s not a monster haul, that is insanity. I say all this to say his 100,000 comics dwarfs what I thought was a nice manga haul. Still this is the most amount of Mangas I’ve bought at any one time. I bought 11 mangas. Now the impressive part is that only one was over $4.25. I may add pictures later but it was a sweet haul. The highlights include Attack on Titan Volume #1 and Demon Slayer #1.
Now as discussed I will be doing Manga Haul post every 5 or so mangas. I’ll slowly be rolling them out over time to ensure I don’t run out of them.
Next week, we might put Manga Haul #2 out soon so be on the look out for that. In the meantime, check out last weeks manga haul here! If you really like mangas, read my review of Rave Master Volume #1 here!
I’ve been buying mangas since the blog started. One of my first hauls evolved Blue Exorcist and Dead Man Wonderland and maybe a Dragon Ball or Seven Deadly Sins thrown in there. However, I didn’t really make a hauls post (at least I don’t think I did.). This will eventually make its way to the Youtube channel, but you guys can have a sneak peak here first. Enjoy!
Rave Master Volume #1
Dragon Eye Volume #1
Boruto Volume #8
This is where Jessica’s haul start as she continues her Boruto run!
Persona 5 Volume #1
I am A Hero Volume #1
We had a pretty good haul all things considered. I’m very happy with my Rave Master. I already put up a review which can be found here. Dragon Eye will get a review soon. Maybe I can talk Jessica into reviewing one of her books? We will see. I’ll try to round up another 5 or so mangas again before I do another haul post, but I hope you guys enjoyed this post.
