.hack – without Sadamoto-sensei?

I watched .hack/Liminality earlier tonight. It’s so different from .hack//SIGN, the atmosphere, the music, yet they have that same feel to it… And the moment the two shows ‘overlap’ is just magic…! (When ‘Obsession’ starts you just ‘feel’ the link, like totally. Excuse me, I’m just… outta there.)

Don’t ever trust rumours: Sadamoto Yoshiyuki is supposedly not working on a .hack manga ;_; At least that’s what one of the production teams’ official site says. But even their dementi was pretty vague so… The first tankoubon of the .hack//Tasogare no Udewa Densetsu is being published on August 1st, but from what I was able to get, it’s more of a slapstick manga than a serious piece of art ;_; (And it’s not by Sadamoto-sensei.)

Shoujo manga news

Onodera Akira-sensei is going to have a tankoubon out on December 17th *cheers* …And the Wish artbook is coming out the same month, too… wonder whether I should buy it or not… I’m not that big a fan of Wish so I’m quite hesitant about preordering it…

And Kazumi Yuana’s Hyakumantsubu no Namida is going to be continued in the next issue of Asuka… So the waiting’s gonna be over very soon. Lately, I haven’t been in a mood for reading manga, though. I still have to finish Tenshikinryouku… I’m much more into reading novels these days…
