"In the city of my birth, I had a dream..."
*bwa ha ha* Bargain-hunting lands yours truly BL manga! (FIRST TIME EVER!!!) 
5th-Nov-2006 08:04 pm
Right, so Sunday morning found me strolling through the indoor antiques/flea market at the Wayne PLO, and I see a (most likely) gay guy selling a ton of books and videos...and a small box of (mostly) BL manga!

(Most Likely) Gay Guy: $3 for one, $5 for two.
Me: I'll take this one, and, uhh, I think this is the one my friend is in *checks*--YEP!--this one.
MLG Guy: *gawping in utter shock as I hand him the money*

In short--I got DMP's Our Everlasting Vol. 1 by Toko Kawai and *victory sign in anderson_t's direction* Yaoi Press's Yaoi Hentai for $2.50 each!! XD XD XD

Did you get the second print edition? She went to the trouble of having it re-colored [it came out lovely] but kept that f*cking font on the title. >_

Nope, it's a first printing. What part was recolored? *curious*

The whole cover. 0_0 Also printed by a new printer, less stiff. There's a face on the new cover too, for Mr. King.

Interesting... Is this the new version?

Nah, that the old one - he has no face and colors look base and without proper shading.

There you go.

I swear, sometimes Amazon.coms site is like masturbating with a banana.

Ah, okay...that must've been one of B&N's "we can't represent the color of manga covers correctly" moments. ^^;

Did they recolor all of the first run Yaoi Press covers, or just that of Yaoi Hentai? *still curious*

As far as I know, YP only recolored the Yaoi Hentai #1 books [because they were going into a second print with new orders from Diamond I suppose]. Saihoshi also went into second printing, which included a new printer and minus 1 story [the one by me.]<--It's ok, not too happy with that story.
She cut it down to one story, keeping Studio Kawaii's story because the last time Diamond asked for a 'story removal' [not sure which book], Kawaii's story had been cut--so she made up for it by keeping them in second Saihoshi.

He had this long-locked, blond surfer-dude look. ^_^;
