Junjou Romantica: Pure Happiness [Dec. 21st, 2012|09:20 pm]

I got my limited edition Junjou Romantica volume 16 today! My god, I love this manga. It's like a warm and fuzzy blanket. Godzilla versus Mothra Usami versus Ijuuin was hilarious, and… I'm glad Ijuuin came out and confessed instead of just being a bit creepy around Misaki. (Misaki, you are too clueless!) He seemed so much more normal (and almost noble) when he was forthright. Too bad you're love is DOOMED...I wonder if he'll get his one true gay romance one day? Also loved Usami acting all responsible and clingy, causing Misaki and Aikawa to get weirded out. Also, the short manga on the covers was adorable. Misaki tries to procrastinate the studying by doing all the housework!!

I went back and skimmed volume 15 to refresh my memory and died laughing at Misaki getting piles of stuff from the various Usami people when he got the job. Who in their right mind thinks giving so much of the same thing is a good idea? (Answer: Usami people) Also, Misaki really needs to start calling Tanaka by his name instead of Sebastian.

I was sad to see no Terrorist and two Egoist chapters, but oh well. Can't have everything.

The three shorts on the DVD were so cute! I even enjoyed the Egoist one! Hiro being grumpy and so not honest with his feelings, and Nowaki being so…nice. He has to take pictures of the train for his patient! The Terrorist one just made me laugh. The reaction Miyagi had to Shinobu showing up dressed so ridiculously…There are no words. And how he's filled with love seeing this smart and snarky teen acting ridiculous because of him. &hearts: ♥ And the Romantica short was great. Not sure if how Misaki's brother and Usami became friends was ever addressed in the manga--I don't remember reading it. Glad to see it here, though. So…so….shoujo manga! XDXD

I forgot that Yokozawa's story will be animated next year. I'm disappointed that Sekaiichi Hatsukoi or Junjou Romantica proper aren't getting new seasons, but I'll watch it. I bought the first volume of the novel but haven't gotten around to reading it. Maybe seeing the anime will prompt me to crack open the book, finally. :P

SACRILEGE! The Usami family butler will always be Sebastian to me. XD

I was sure I had read all the anime shorts before, so your comment confused me, but then I figured they must have been from some special book (I am enough of a loser that I'm pretty sure I have every Junjou special booklet that was ever printed) so I went looking: they're the shorts that came with the special edition DVDs of season two.

LOL. Maybe one day Misaki will actually call Tanaka "Tanaka" but Tanaka will still respond "My name is Tanaka..." out of habit?

I hate all those little shorts they stick in extra books that never get collected into tankobon. I just can't go down the road of buying the magazines and everything else and it means missing out. GAH.

Ha, I love that idea. XD

I know what you mean about extra booklets. I really hate not having them, though, so I end up buying them on the second-hand market and pay out the nose for them. :/

I had to decide not to buy too much on the second-hand markets. Having to use a proxy service just makes it crazy expensive. *sighs*

Ugh, yeah, proxy services are especially bad. I was thinking more of buying them used in Japan (because somehow I always come away with a stack of them), but compared to doing it through a proxy service, that's downright cheap. :/
