Kinokuniya and Vampire Knight...

So, they're sold out of the December issue of LALA. NOOOOO! So, I am even more grateful for Sagakure scanning the cover. Money is very limited, so I'm not willing to shove over bucks for an overpriced LALA on Ebay.

All was not lost, I did buy Vampire Knight vol. 10 and 11. mwuahahaha. Well, my bf bought me 11. Anyway, I had to have the volume where Zero and Yuuki kiss! And Vol. 11's cover. I'm surprised they had it so soon! It's also awesome just to have the originals, support the fandom; and the Japanese volumes cost me $6.40 USD and the US volumes cost $9.99 now. (They were $8.99. I don't mind paying extra if it keeps the series alive AND it's cheaper than most manga! It's still under $10 bucks!)

Y'know what I JUST noticed about the cover of VK10, Yor's eyes aren't blue....why'd I think they were?

Anyway, we got melon pan again. Yum!

Oh, unrelatedly, I found a manga, soon-to-be-anime, called "Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru" by Hotaru Odagiri. It's Yaoi...and looks like a Vampire Knight knock-off. LOL. The story line is NOTHING like VK, but the artwork...well, the main character is a boy named Yuki who falls in love with a guy named Luka....Yup, the art looks like Zero and Kaname to me! lol. Oh, and it's going to be an anime and guess who the seiyuu involved will be: Mamoru Miyano(Zero), Jun Fukiyama (Aido), and Souichiro Hoshi (Shiki)! Damn, all we needed was Daisuke Kishio and we'd have our yaoi fangirl dreams come true.

Just google the title and I think you'll see what I mean. Not to bash or flame, but Vampire Knight's art is much better AND you can tell the difference from Zero and Kaname and Luka and Yuki. I just thought some stuff looked similar. Like Luka and Kaname's hair and Zero and Yuki's hair (color).

I'm not a yaoi fan, but I'm intrigued. I mean, the art is pretty...and it's mainly shojo, so not even a kiss happens, which is kinda frustrating it seems. There are 6 volumes of it. Here's the official anime site: http://www.uraboku.jp/

Alright, I gotta get back to planning.
