#MangaMonday Review – Sota's Knife Vol 1 by Yuichiro Sueda

After reading Food Wars! and Space Battle Lunch Time, two extremely different food based stories, I’ve made it a point to seek out more food based manga and graphic novels. When I had a chance to read Sota’s Knife Vol. 1 by Yuichiro Sueda and Kei Honjo I jumped on it. Sota’s Knife is a wonderful manga about hard work, following your dreams, and food.

#ThrowbackThursday Review – Vampire Hunter D Vol 2: Raiser of Gales

The world of Vampire Hunter D is an intriguing one, an apocalyptic world where tech and the arcane mingle. It’s a place filled with vampires, monsters, and humans who will do anything to survive. It’s a fascinating world, and I enjoyed reading the second volume in this classic series. But, maybe, not as much as I enjoyed the first.

I like shonen. I also like sports manga. Although, to be honest, I like just about all manga. This week I started a new series titled Karate Heat by Eiichi Kitano, a title I was previously unfamiliar with. This is a shonen manga about karate, hard work, and friendship.

Review – Glass Predator (Harmony Black #3)

 As with any series, the farther into it we go the harder it is to review without spoilers so read at your own risk.  I’m trying to avoid them I really am but it’s hard to do that when you want to talk about how great the book is.  Continue Reading
