So volume 14 and 15 of From Eroica with Love came in the mail yesterday thus completing my collection of the english translated version of the series. CMX closed it's doors last month and took Eroica with it. This saddens me really because when it comes down to it, I really liked this series, it was perhaps my favorite series to collect (aside from BlackJack which I am INCREDIBLY BEHIND ON). Eroica fueled my love of old school mangaka and made me go back and revisit the classics that I think are essential to any love of anime/manga.

There was a call for Eroica to be published by June manga, but I -really- don't think that venue would be right for a classic like Eroica. I personally think that the best bet would be Vertical Inc, but only because they've published many things from that particular group of women mangaka. I don't really post my own opinion on the fancommunity though because people like mprice intimidate me a little bit, and I would just hate to make an utter faux pas and goof up over there on the community.

Tonight I'm going to read my two volumes of Eroica (plus vol 13 because I need to recap myself on what's happening in Klaus n' Dorian-land.) and I will personally mourn the fact that there won't be any more published Eroica unless an act of god occurs (and the state of anime and manga is such that it likely won't happen). This also means that I'll have to start reading manga-fox's translations starting at vol 16.

God damn it, I have the hiccups, you know how hard it is to concentrate on typing when you have hiccups?

Also, the first person to see this entry, comment with something you want me to talk about in my next journal entry and I'll do it! (it can be anything from fandom related to something more personal.. anything at all)
