09/26/2002 Archived Entry: "Newsflash: Kinokuniya Opens Early!"

You know what's something cool I found out yesterday? Kinokuniya opens early. ^_^ I was on my way to school, with plenty of time to spare, so I was all like: "I need to kill time somehow.... Hey, Kinokuniya's on my way to school...." ^_^ Yah... I didn't expect them to be open at 9 something cause they're a Japanese store. Those always seem to like to open around 10 or so, but they surprised me. So anyway, I went by and picked up some manga. I got Star Ocean Blue Sphere #1 and Enix Supercomic Gekijoh Volume 41, featuring Comic Party.

Star Ocean's so great! ^_^ A little background: Blue Sphere is the Gameboy Color game that continues the story of the characters in Star Ocean 2. It takes place two years after the second game. Anyway, the manga was just released 9/22, so it's really new. I love Kinokuniya. ^_^ So, as I was saying... this manga's just so cool. I love the art. I have favorable things to say about all the new outfits too. I think Celine's new outfit is interesting. I was getting kinda tired of the old outfit, so yay. Leon looks a heck of a lot older and cooler now! I love how he ditched the lab coat in favor of a slick jacket. ^_^ And finally, but not least importantly, Precis looks older and better too. She now looks like what she should have in looked like in the last series. ^_^; She doesn't look anywhere near 18, which is what age she should be in this series, but oh well. At least I feel like less of a pedophile now. ^_^; Not that pedophilism is a bad thing or anything. ^_^

The Comic Party manga seems like a professionally published doujin. Really now. There are multiple artists featured, and they don't seem to be of professional caliber. Meh... oh well.... The stories are mildly amuzing, so I'm satisfied. ^_^

On the school front, nothing much really happening. I am starting to think that my math class won't be nearly as bad as I thought it would be though. My teacher doesn't explain quite as well as some teachers I've taken in the past, but she seems adequate. I guess that's more than I can ask more, eh?
