#wanderingjune #biginjapan

Manga is big in Japan! This is the first one I read and it‘s super sweet. (Excuse the picture scooped from google - I‘m low on time as I‘m holidaying) Any reccs for more manga? - I definitely like the slice of life variety best.

xicanti YOTSUBA&! is great slice of life manga featuring an adventurous five-year-old and the adults who help her explore the world. It‘s got quite a different vibe than ORANGE, though. I always grin my way through each volume. 8mo
Centique @xicanti excellent! Thanks for the tip. It sounds perfect. I will search it out. 8mo
batsy I really enjoyed Emma, set in Victorian England. So absorbing and I took great pleasure in the detailed art. 8mo

BarbaraBB I‘ve never read one. Are they graphic novels? 8mo
Lindy Slice of life are my favourite kind of manga. The series that I‘m caught up in at the moment also has elements of science fiction in modern Tokyo: 8mo
Lindy Orange has been on my TBR for a while; I‘m moving it up in priority now. Another great slice of life manga: 8mo
Lindy I also love this standalone: 8mo

Centique @Lindy thank you SO MUCH. These look great! Stacking all of them 😍 8mo
Lindy @Centique You‘re welcome 😇 8mo
Centique @BarbaraBB sorry I seemed to have missed your question there Barbara! I think they can be anything from comics to larger graphic novels - but they are translated from Japanese and have a particular art style. They also read right to left so it takes a little to get into that reading pattern. 8mo
BarbaraBB That is so interesting!! 8mo

Good news, friends! I was able to return the dodgy almost-healthy ice cream! I invested the refund money in a Reese‘s bar and a Cadbury Creme Egg, neither of which is remotely almost-healthy.

The Creme Egg in particular reminded me why Creme Eggs aren‘t as wonderful in practice as in theory. Ulp.

At least the book‘s still wonderful. And the social was fun, even though I was obliged to leave early because my DD wanted to go. #readathon

Rachel.Rencher Healthy icecream shouldn't be a thing. 😂 I'm not ashamed to devour a Ben & Jerry's from time to time. 10mo
xicanti @Rachel.Rencher it tasted like cold, vaguely chocolatey cardboard, and I‘m honestly not sure if that‘s because it was off or because the company designed it that way. 10mo
Rachel.Rencher @xicanti sounds like a pint of Halo Top that I tried once 🙊 never again 10mo
xicanti @Rachel.Rencher I actually had a really good experience with Halo Top‘s Chocolate Bar flavour a few months back. This stuff, by Good North, was nothing like that. I‘m glad the store took it back. 10mo
TobeyTheScavengerMonk I usually eat one Cadbury Creme Egg a year because it takes me that long to forget. 9mo

I read some more ORANGE while I ate my doctored leftovers. (I crumbled up yesterday‘s tofu chunks, then fried the whole thing up in a bit of bacon grease, more chilli paste, and hoisin. YUM.) This reread‘s doing it for me in a big way. What a great series.

Now I‘ve gotta take a break and go back to Superstore because my almost-healthy ice cream‘s freezer burned and tastes dodgy. I hope they‘ll let me return it. #readathon

I have to read a manga book for one of the challenges in which I‘m participating. So I chose Volume 1 of several issues of Orange. I‘ve never read manga before, so I was completely surprised that I enjoyed it so much. It has a time travel element involving high schoolers that are trying to save their friend by changing the future. I‘ll definitely read Volume 2, and if you have any recommendations of other Manga titles, I‘d love to hear!

Cute story, but I just don't enjoy manga. The art, the "reverse" reading, it just doesn't do it for me. I read spoilers online, though. Clever plot.

P.s. I mean, the text is read left to right, but the bubbles and panels are read right to left? It's too much work. Can't they just print the art mirrored to the original?

I loved this book with every page turn. Mangas for me have been lacking since I read goodnight punpun. I'd say this book has got me interested in reading manga again. Heartwarming story and sweet characters. Brings you on a journey that you wish you could be in. I would suggest this book to anyone.

June stats!

I'm thrilled I read so much 5-star stuff last month. ORANGE, Ichigo Takano's 5-volume manga series about a group of teenagers who team up with their 26-year-old selves to save their newest friend's life, hit me so hard I had to buy the second half rather than wait for my library to get it. THE LODESTAR OF YS, a gay fantasy romance by Amy Rae Durreson, left me kicking myself for how long it took me to pull it off La TBR.

[#MangaReview] Orange Volume One by Ichigo Takano is such a heartwarming story about friendship! This may be my favorite manga ever, and I am already dying for volume two. I am even watching the anime because I cannot get enough of these characters and the story. If you‘ve read Orange, I‘d love to talk about it!

Every June I read at least one book that BLOWS MY FRICKIN MIND so hard I don't even know how to talk about it. This year, I'm all, "OMG OMG OMGGGGGGGG" over ORANGE Vols 1-3.

Because IT'S ABOUT FRIENDSHIP AND TIME TRAVEL AND RECOGNIZING WHAT YOU NEED AND ALSO WHAT OTHERS NEED AND THE LOVE TRIANGLE IS AMAZING AND DEEP AND POIGNANT AND I FRICKIN *WEPT* Y'ALL I LOVE IT SO DAMNED MUCH.

Seriously: most interesting love triangle ever.

I started ORANGE before bed last night, which turned into me staying up SUPER LATE, which meant I also slept way past my usual Sunday wake up time.

So I had a BLT on naan for breakfast, with cheese and mayo. It was delicious.

(Don't worry--my dad and I did Father's Day breakfast a few weeks back, since we had a Sal's coupon.)

When a beloved #mangaseries gets a sequel, some people will revolt.
When it comes to #orangefuture this is the case. I've been hearing that a lot of people don't like it. Sorry guys, I liked it! This is answering some of my questions from the original series, and I am liking seeing it play out.

Because it‘s hard to separate out, this pick is for both volumes. I really, really loved these books. The kind of books I just want to hug. There were tears and there were smiles. These characters stole my heart, especially in the way they so cared about and for one another. Trigger warning for suicide. #comicslove #manga

This rides the line between pick and so-so because the protagonist is just... too timid. I know that's (partially) what this book is about but it's a lot to have to deal with. However, the ending ensured that I'll pick up volume 2.

I had expected to be able to get through this manga in a couple sittings because I can usually get through comics and manga pretty fast. That didn't happen in this case, not because I thought Orange was bad, but because I was reading it right before bed when I was really tired and couldn't focus for very long. And I discovered that this sort of thing works very well for me in that sort of situation.

Looking forward to the second volume.
