    【Loot】Various Spoils from 2010 

    What better way to end a hiatus AND ring in a new year than with a loot post?

    This post is a continuation of the previous loot post and includes all items I have acquired since then.

      For a second there, I thought it was Soutaiseiriron (相対性理論), but Souaiseiriron is just as awesome.

      So many lovely items, especially all those art books! I’m jealous. ^ ^

        Yeah, while I was typing up Souaiseiriron I was thinking that at least one person would definitely misread it as Soutaiseiriron. Actually been looking for Soutaiseiriron albums at Book Off for centuries but they’ve never appeared, unfortunately. Thanks for reading and commenting!!

      Wow nice loot! Btw where does the cover image for that Kikan S magazine come from? It looks really similar to Takeshi Obata’s work.

    【Loot】Kikan S, The Art of Sister Princess, and Various Manga from Book Off 

    A month goes by so quickly these days.

    Book Off is a chain of used bookstores, although the stores also have some new books for sale, such as newly released manga tankoubon. They sell almost exclusively Japanese books, but the overseas branches have sections devoted to books in the respective domestic language as well. They operate mainly in Japan, but have branches in Seoul, South Korea; the United States; Vancouver, Canada; and Paris, France.

      ‘one of the best pages in a manga ever’

      whats so special about that page? it looks ordinary to me.

      • polymetrica 10:23 am on March 4, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        It’s one of my favourite scenes in a manga, a page that pertains to my personal interests.

      I love book off! You can get manga for like a little more than a dollar if you live in Japan and go to one…its too bad there are none like that in the US and we’re stuck buying manga at exhoborant prices.
