Last night, at Tokyo's Anime here in Salt Lake City, i purchased this little graphic novel. So far it's really superb. I cherish every cell for the details, motion, and little things like physics.
The fact that i paid about 10.50 for this little guy also makes me want to really milk this book for what it's got. Reaching out to even put myself in some of the characters' situations and positions, adding another dimension to the immersive qualities this manga can create. What FUN (no, really, i'm serious)!
Of course it IS manga and sometimes it's a little far-fetched but all-in-all it's what i consider a super book (not that it means too much because, after all, this IS my first manga).
Oh yea, and the sounds i think are a little different. I mean the onomatopoeic kinds. I catch myself trying to make my own because the ones they give me just don't feel right. Does anyone else agree? I think it's a cultural thing because the sounds from the US graphic novels seem to mesh very well for me. I'm only up to the 3rd phase (or chapter) of the book so wish me luck on my voyage!
I always have mixed feelings about Thanksgiving. Mostly because not only is it a celebration day for the Native American oppression but i can't help but feel thankful for all of the wonderful freedom that i have.
I suppose i should just be thankful. That's the bottom line.
It's so great to be happy on the holidays when your family is so far away. I think that it's tops when you become self-sufficient enough to provide for your own happiness and don't need outside stimuli to feel joy from people or substance.
Right now, sitting at a computer at the public library there are tons of interesting faces. All types of people from all walks of life. Looking at each other, curious.
I have to work tonight at 7 and close at 11:30. Just the right time to get grooving at the Just Wanna Dance fun-time extravaganza. It's the last one so it should be fun.
