April 2015 Manga Haul

Oof! I ended up getting a lot of manga this time. This is pretty much March and April combined. This time I tried ordering manga online from Honto. They are a Japanese online bookstore formerly known as BK1. I used to order from them a lot when I lived in Texas and had no other access to manga. It has been years, so I was curious to see how they compared to ordering from Kinokuniya or Amazon Japan. The nice hing about Honto is that they charge in Yen (with the current dollar-yen exchange rate, that’s a win for me) AND they offer SAL shipping. While SAL is very slow, it’s also a lot cheaper. I priced out the same order on Honto and Amazon JP, and the Honto order was $50 cheaper! Of course, the Amazon order would only take, like, 3 days to arrive, while this Honto order took 17 days, but still, $50 is $50! I considered the wait worth it this time. Interestingly, I think books got to me faster when I lived in Texas, compared to California. Hmm. Anyway, here is the big pile I got this time. It would be nice if I could get around to summarizing some of these…
