Beauty is So Solitary--Read Chapter 320 here
This issue hits the stands for Tanabata (the traditional one) 8/7 and if I didn't know any better.... hmmm... I'd say our manga-ka was having a little fun here with his fans and the Tanabata theme. We have an Eagle release (one of the constellations in the Tanabata myth is the eagle's--and well... never mind, it's too much mythology) and instead of the traditional birdies that fill the gap between heaven and earth we seem to have drag queens floating in the sky. That, and look at the chapter cover--PURE FANSERVICE FOR JAPAN'S NUMBER ONE SHIP: GIN/KIRA!
A yaoi couple for Tanabata. I love you so much, Kubo-sensei. So much that my heart is about to burst.
Someone in my last post called this chapter Sailor Moon Goes Over 9000! That's the best title I've heard so far.
Responses to this chapter have been O_O and anywhere from oh please, no and let's get on with the fighting to TOTAL DELIGHT. Put me in the delight camp. I haven't had this much fun since Szayel.
Did someone read my complaints about there not being an official Orihime plush? No sooner had I finished commissioning a plushie from master plush maker Pheleon than an official one turns up! She's so cute! Someone buy her for me!
Another report on the Kubo panel with some stealth photos taken
People keep asking me about jaina's interview with Kubo-sensei. She should have a public post up about her experiences at SDCC eventually and her interview comes out in magazine form on Sept 17. She asked some wonderful questions and the interview should be an enjoyable read. America's Shounen Jump has interview with Kubo appearing shortly before that for its October issue.
