Oh dear, no new posts in ages!!  This is Laserwolf, making a post!  Just what have I been doing?  Well, I have read the whole manga series of Fullmetal Alchemist, 24 volumes in Japanese, since my last post, but since the manga is almost over (might as well finish it before making a post) and since Segue already has a post on that series (albeit the anime rather than the manga) I decided to wait until I had something different to talk about.

Take three Sunday-morning cartoon characters, a Disney princess, and an old pot-bellied dragon with fluffy ears.  Then send them on an epic fantasy adventure where bad, bad things happen to them.  Does this sound like:
A)  A recipe for failure
or
B) A recipe for success

Panda Masamune here, bringing you my second review.  Before reading this graphic novel, I probably would have answered A).  But Jeff Smith has made me a believer.  Come see why you should care about this American Graphic Novel.

“Alice in the Country of Hearts” volumes 1 to 3

16 11 2009

Hello!  This is Laserwolf.  Don’t be fooled by the S following Laserwolf.  There are no other Laserwolfs.  Just like the Highlander, there can be only one.

I love reading and the occasional video game, but lately I have been reading more manga than anything else.  Manga is a wonderful study tool; I live in Japan and I want to improve my Japanese but I have no patience for textbooks.  My favorite manga genre is monster/vampire/werewolf/etc.  Because I often get too engrossed in manga to stop and look up words I don’t know, there is a slight chance I have misunderstood things in Japanese.  However, I will not post anything I feel I have not fully understood.  I have a penchant for reading manga that is not available in English yet.  For this, I am sorry for you non-Japanese readers, but please try to look at it this way – I am introducing you to new things, which you can look forward to reading in English in the future.
