It doesn’t feel like it was all that long ago when I had my manga shopping spree at SF Japantown on Nov. 1st, but in less than 2 months, I’m back here again.
Since I wasn’t able to get my hands on Minamoto Monogatari Vol.4 last time, I knew that I would be back soon. But in addition to that, a couple of my friends were going to watch a movie here, so that made for a perfect timing. Continue Reading!

While I have been planning to go to Japantown in early May, in order to pick up the latest volume of ToLoveRu Darkness, my friend called Kinokuniya and reserved supposedly the last copy for me. And so that push things up and we went on the last Saturday of April, the 27th.
Besides my usual friend that does everything with me, I was able to make plans with a friend, who was my roommate during my study abroad in Japan, to come to with us. It was the first time for the 3 of us to hang out together, as the two never met. Continue Reading!
