new march books – part 1

books_mar15

Got these last week but never got around to taking a picture. I was attempting to hold off until there was a RightStuf sale, but I realized there was probably a really low chance of Seven Seas getting a sale so I decided to just go ahead and buy them. I also decided I couldn’t wait for a VIZ sale so I got Shokugeki no Souma 4 in this shipment… then obviously VIZ went on sale like 2 days later -.- So that’s the other half of this month’s manga purchases, which include Nisekoi 8, 5 more volumes of Skip Beat, and a preorder for Shokugeki no Souma that releases on April 7.

Funny story: apparently Seven Seas had to take down the picture of Monster Musume 6 from Facebook because it was considered too lewd :O

full daredevil trailer… 31 days to go!

io9 posted the full Daredevil trailer today, and it looks quite awesome. I have a free Netflix trial sitting in my e-mail that I’m saving for this :3

Also, Spider-Gwen issue 2 goes on sale tomorrow. I’d really love to pick up this variant cover, but the odds of me going to multiple stores looking for it are pretty low :X maybe I’ll luck out again, heh.

So here’s me supporting the local shops.

Finally decided to just buy some Chihayafuru volumes they had at Kinokuniya, since I want to own them anyway and no point waiting for a license announcement that seems less and less likely. Funnily enough, TFAW didn’t have any regular Spider-Gwen covers, they only had the variant cover I wanted the most. Darn.

So I am definitely new to the franchise, but I am quite enamored with the Monster Hunter games, so I figured why not write a blog post.

A preface, I only started Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the 3DS about 5 weeks ago. I mainly play with my friend, who is on WiiU, we get together about twice a week. As I got more and more into the game, I started playing more on my own time, and I am currently on the 7-star quests in solo mode, and we are on HR 4 in multiplayer mode. I use dual blades 99% of the time.

So, since we are still pretty involved in 3U, I have not spent as much time in 4U as most other people have. I just unlocked 3-star quests in solo mode last night, and I’ve only played a couple quests in HR 1 with another friend.
