I visit MangaBlog everyday. Even on weekends when she is mostly too busy with her personal life (I'm assuming) to update. Because I'm hoping that she was kind enough to post...and sometimes I get a treat.
Today was one of those days she updated on a weekend, and it was a HUGE treat. She reviewed E'S #1 & #2.
MangaBlog reviews are one of the best. Her amazing talent shows especially when summarizing a complicated series like E'S. (Her review on KAMUI was superb too).
She picks up important details but is concise. The review is just the right length... Okay, I'm not going to get into detail about how great her writing is. It's already known in the manga blogosphere.
But please please please read it if you haven't picked up E'S yet.
The injustice I do to E'S when I try explaining it on this blog is made up for. Thank you, MangaBlog.
I like how she noticed the extras in the back. (Volume 1 has a "Guide to Gald," and volume 2 has a pamphlet-type propaganda-like text to recruit psychics to join Ashurum). They take a long time to do, perhaps maybe half of the time I spend translating the entire book. And the graphics person, Keiran, would transform my ugly sketches into lovely lovely layouts.
Oh, I should work on planning out the extras in volume 5.
