Yeah, I know it’s December already. I just had an extremely busy semester so had to leave the magazine for until I was finished the exams.
The cover pretty much tells you that this issue’s focus was on Love Plus+.
G’s Magazine also started a plan to increase their manga section by 200%. October did see a whole lot of new manga series begin, so they’re making good on the promise. More on this later.
October 2010 Furoku
Furoku (foo-row-ku): lit. extra goods
– goods that come bundled with a purchase of an item in Japan.
This month featured three minor furoku:
- Love Plus+ / Angel Beats! “IC Card Sticker” which is simply a fancy term for a sticker the size of a credit card.
- Weiss Schwartz PR card – Angel Beats! × Kud Wafter
I’d use the IC card sticker but since I have a VISA card it would be an issue if I covered up the security code at the back.
As mentioned earlier this month saw the beginning of several new series in the manga section.
Ro-Kyu-bu (Low Cube) is among one of the new series. It tells the story of a high school boy that plays for the school’s basketball team.
His future in the region’s basketball-focused high school looked good. But one day, his dreams are shattered when it’s discovered that the team’s captain was having an affair with an instructor’s daughter. The team was dismissed.
When he’s home he receives an offer from his sister that had just become the advisor to her school’s basketball team. He reluctantly takes the offer, but it isn’t a regular basketball team awaiting him at the gym.
I am interested in the series simply for the fact that its illustrator is Tinkle. He’s famous among the loli circles for his simply awesome drawing style.
Now, time to read November issue!
