I got three jobs today.
Two video games, and one manga.
One of the video games is the same series as the previous video game I worked on.
This series is hot hot hot right now, so I was expecting it...just not this soon.
The other video game is a title I really know nothing about.
I do know about the title, but I've never read the manga or seen the anime.
But luckily, I have a friend at the anime distribution company who released the anime, so maybe I can borrow the DVDs.
...Actually, he just emailed me back saying I can borrow them!
He's so nice!
Anyway, today was my day off, so I went to get a massage and bought some manga.
I bought the bunko versions of manga I used to read when I was younger:
Handsome na Kanojo
Noroi no Kurojuuji
Handsome na Kanojo is by the artist who did "Marmalade Boy" and "Ultra Maniac."
I personally prefer Handsome na Kanojo over most of her other work.
There was a one-volume manga I liked too, called "Quartet Game," but I think it's out of print.
Mienai Silhouette and Noroi no Kurojuuji are by Yoko Matsumoto.
She was the "horror shojo artist of Nakayoshi" when I was young.
Like the current Miyuki Etoh (Jigoku Shoujo).
Noroi no Kurojuuji wasn't that interesting, but "Mienai Kao" that was featured in Mienai Silhouette is a story I like.
There's a nice twist.
And it's people getting killed by people, and not some evil spirit like the other stories.
I like human murder stories.
I don't support or encourage them though.
(I'm not a psycho!)
I can't say anything about Kochikame.
It speaks for itself.
It's funny, informative, and entertaining.
To continue my day off, I'll be going to watch Spider-Man 3 at midnight.
...And then I'll work on my birthday (tomorrow) all day.
I chose the wrong day to take off, didn't I?
