This is Bigheart showing up again! Now that the Election is over, most of the people at the US should be able to calm down. I got an idea: Let's bring along an huge amount of anime and manga to help with that along with the rest of the world! Should do the trick, right? ...Right?
Anyway, this time, Yuki Cross runs into Ouran High's Host Club, a new shrine deity arrives on duty, the Golden Boy tries to pick up chicks, NERV gets into an inversigation involving Sawako Kuronuma and Date Masamune goes into battle once again.
Since I'm a Blue Exorcist fan and had worked on its wiki pages with my teammates, I never tried the manga yet. I'm stoked to see what the manga had over the anime if I get a chance.
For Volume 8: "Awakened by the traitor Saburota Todo, the Impure King's massive form threatens to engulf the city of Kyoto. As the Exorcists of the Tokyo Branch and the monks of the Myodha temple do all they can to contain the demon, Rin and his friends find themselves separated and facing their own battles. While Rin and Ryuji race to confront the full might of the Impure King, Yukio takes on Todo single-handed and discovers that he may be his own worst enemy!"
My pick will be the Kimi ni Todoke manga (despite having Sengoku Basara as the banner because it looks cool). The premise of the series had me wondering if it would be any good since I've had a lot of good luck with the number of shoujo series that I ran into since forever. I have a lot more on my plate right now, so I'll have to polish them off before I start with this potential gem.
For Volume 15: "Ever since the near-kiss incident on the school trip, Sawako and Kazehaya have become distant. With Ayane warming to Kento's affections and Chizuru devastated that her friendship with Ryu is beyond repair, does the change of season mean a change of heart?"
Now everyone, what will you pick?
