This is what tethysdust said this week:
Not much really interested me this week. Armor-Amour was pretty cute. It was neat that she wasn't a crazy-violent girlfriend, just very unemotional. I actually found Shin Cosume no Mahou interesting, but they were really into cosmetics. They even have little tutorials for parts of it. I never knew putting on eyeshadow could be so dramatic!
Here's a note from vyc:
Loved Hanasaku Iroha from this week. Sorta a shoujo series but the meta comedy along with the main character's personality really got me into the series. Worth reading at least 1 volume for sure. Fuon Connect - 4koma series about a trio of sisters and their lives with each other. The clashing personalities makes it an easy and fun read for anyone.
Not much really interested me although both Armor Amour
and Hanasaku Iroha
sound really cute. Translated items that need some love/scanlation:sonsofloki
- Young Shima Kousaku
: Chapter 1
