First, I got Pet Shop of Horrors 7! *loves* And goodness is Leon still in denial. My favorite story was the one with D's "sister". Ha! The artistic differences between the two of them are so small that they might as well be clones of the same person. Heh. "So who looks better in a dress" indeed. :D
Also read Vampire Game 7 today too. Funny as ever. Ishtar just lives to make Duzzie's life difficult, doesn't she? And we can see that Duzzie is certainly getting contaminated by their association together - if you can consider Ishtars special brand of airheadedness contagious. He's become fond of her, which would certainly be a problem if she does turn out to be the reborn Phelios. Heck, Duzzie is even aware of that, 'cause he states that he sees Phelios when he looks in her eyes, and ponders if he might've made a mistaken determination that first time he bit her, since he was so new into the world. The intrigue that goes around our main characters is deliciously twisted. I mean, the captain of the guard in Xi Canda (the guy who mistook Du for a girl and Ishtar for a boy) turns out to be the half brother of the princess... and they're in love with each other. Heh. All the descendants of Phelios are seriously messed up. Must be all the inbreeding.
Psychic Academy 3 has come out. Still a disturbing escapee from the fashion police, but I think we're actually starting to see some semblance of a plotline, not to mention character growth. I find myself liking Zero a lot, even if he wears metal underwear on the outside of his pants, and acts like such an melodramatic dork.
xxxHolic 2 sheds more light onto the cosmology of the Clamp-verse. We now know that it takes place in the same universe as Card Captor Sakura. The dimension witch also hints that she and Clow Reed (from CCS) had met Mokona, the creator-deity from Magic Knight Rayearth, in the past.
Yu Yu Hakusho 4 is out, and we get to see more of Kurama in the new arc. ^_^ My my, flower boy has quite a reputation among youkai. Looks, brain, and power. Hah. Oh, and Hiei's cool too. Not much else about that series interests me though. If I wanted martial arts powerfests, I could get more laughs out of Ranma 1/2.
