"In the city of my birth, I had a dream..."
Books that arrived while I was away.

Argh, argh, ARGH!!! It just makes me want to rip someone's innards out when a box of brand-new books I ordered arrives, and the books inside look like they've been through a war of attrition and back. Ink rubbed off one, all eight corners dented on a hardcover book, a paperback bent in half so that the spine is actually broken...*grr* Not a single book in that box came out unscathed!
It's to the point where I'm already planning on replacing at least two...

*sighs* At least the Japanese know how to package books for mailing; I don't have nearly as many problems in with the books I get from overseas as I do from domestic sources. My tri-annual shipment of adults-only manga arrived, including Renketsu Houshiki by Karino Hasumi, a whooping 300-page volume with the usual balloon-breasted females getting it on in very explicit ways with lithe but hugely-endowed boys. I've always liked her artstyle; it's both insanely detailed and fluid. Also got Minion's newest, So Soul Chichi, which is the usual big sister x boy shotacon. I still live in hope of finding more boy-on-boy shotacon from Minion, but thus far I haven't been so lucky...except for one threesome pinup in this book. (^^; However, his partner in crime Nakanoo Kei is back in that business, and one of his usual underwear fetish shotacon stories appears in Vol.8 of the Koushoku Shounen no Susume anthology series. Nothing revolutionary, alas, but still a pleasure. His characters have such a delightful, fleshy softness to them.

Believe me, I know how you feel. I have this problem regularly with the Customs here.

Ah, yes. >_< Not exactly gentle with the books, are they?

That would be the understatement of the century^^

Like, how bad? ^^;;;

All that you mentioned plus a nice cutter (?) that they use to rip open the packages. So you have special edition dvds with their slip cover nearly ripped in half. Very obvious tear lines on the cover of books. And let's not mention the idiot who's hands have touched some kind of black ink and then proceeded to touch your books.

Don't get me started. I swore to my dad that if I got angry enough, I'd march right down to the office of the manager of the Customs department^_~

*groans* Box cutter marks; I haven't seen them in quite awhile. Last time was on one of my CMX manga; the cover was nearly sliced in half--and the @ssholes SHIPPED it to me like that! *gargh*

The Karino Hasumi anthology sounds interesting. Is there any way I can talk you into sharing a sample scan of the style of art?

*dies laughing*
The colouring's excellent at least. Can't say I care for the rest^^

Lemme guess: What she's got at chest-level bothering you? ^_~

I just wonder how unrealistic breasts can get. If any girl has em that big, she'd topple over^_^
28th-Aug-2005 03:43 pm (UTC)
Alas, they can get very big quite naturally. *points to her own mother as a point of comparison*

Thing is, you don't *want* them that big. It means back and shoulder pain; she tells me she would have a reduction if she could afford it.

That's not what I meant! I'm not doubting they can be big, but the sheer size and "fluidity" of some hentai mangaka's breasts make them look like big balloons filled with water^_^

Okay, I had some reservations, but that's pretty hot.

*snickers* What can I say? I have good taste in hentai, too? ^_~
