Swag Bag – Finding One Thousand Nights in the Twelve Kingdoms

Thursday again already? Where does the time fly! Under a few feet of snow in some places it seems. We got a good blizzard here but not as much snow as some places, that’s for sure. None the less it was a great time to settle back with some good books and I was happy to finally get an Amazon order with just that in it.

While I haven’t gotten to pick up this week’s new manga releases yet, I nabbed a few titles on my ‘must-have’ backorder list thanks to First to be pulled from the box was the eleventh and final volume of One Thousand and One Nights. I love this series so the fact it’s taken so long to get the last book still boggles my mind; perhaps I was just avoiding the end! I adore the cover on it, that dress-vest and collared shirt looks fantastic on Sehara.

One Thousand and One Nights (Vol. 11)Also criss-crossing time and fashion-space is the second book of the light novel series, The Twelve Kingdoms. The first book blew me away as a detailed and believable fantasy story about a girl ripped from her world and dropped into one of demons, Gods and people hatched from egg-fruit.

Lastly, I bought the first two volumes of Ayano Yamane’s Finder series. I have what was released in English already by BeBeautiful but I’d heard too many good things about Digital Manga‘s version to pass up a revisit. While I like to think I’d care enough to check the differences between the two editions, I’m sure I’ll just be enjoying the eye-candy and the shiny new design work on the covers.

Oh, and though not a new volume of anything, I did finally purchase a one-year Got Anime? membership. A couple purchases a year from RightStuf at at least $150 a piece and it seems more than worth it to me.

  1. I finally gave in and purchased a Got Anime? membership recently, too! I definitely need to check out One Thousand and One Nights, I've been meaning to for a while now.

    I bought volume 2 of Cross Game yesterday, which made me happy as I love Mitsuru Adachi. I also bought volume 1 of Axe Cop, and it's just as fun in print as it was on the web.

    Augh, I need to get Cross Game 2 soon… it's waiting for me, and I plan to read it ASAP once I get it. The first was so wonderful and heart wrenching.
