Bad News/Good News II

("II" because I see that I already had a post with this title at some point.)

Bad: Hikaru no Go has ended! Yes, I should have known that, but Minekura-sensei's health and the news about Tokyopop have taken up all my manga publishing brain cells, apparently, because I didn't notice. I got the latest volume yesterday and only today noticed that it said "Final Volume!" in a little bubble on the back.

And it ended without saying anything about what really finally happened to Sai, and without having him make another appearance, although he shows up in one of the two extra stories at the end.

So ... there may be spoilers in the discussion, I guess, if anyone else is following this series.

Good: The Discworld fanworks fest - Disc Fest - is coming! I'm signing up - how about some of you other Pratchett fans? (Please?)

They'll be collecting prompts starting tomorrow (you don't have to be a participant or even a community member to suggest prompts!), claiming runs May 25 through June 1, and works are due July 20.

Here is a very long fic by Ontogenesis that you will love about Sai and Ogata: http://ontogenesis.livejournal.com/26373.html#cutid1. It's set after the end of the manga.

I was reading Hikaru No Go some time ago, out of interest how many volumes was it by the time it ended? I was really enjoying it when i was reading i was up to about volume 12? (i think) Now my manga's in storage.

The final one is vol. 23.

I would be really sad if my manga were stored away!

It is a bit sad, i have all of my saiyuki manga and artbooks. But even alot of my saiyuki doujinshi (the non favorites) have been stored.

I am currently living with my best friend and his parents and i only have one room. now is the moment you raise your eye brow and ask "wait but how much manga do you have?"

....

:P I have more manga than i have ever seen in any Borders shelf. (EVA) I have also had people from other countries come and say they've never seen so much manga in their life. :P I have 6 giant shelves worth and they were stacked upwards (so flat rather than straight) and they were double stacked (so one at the back)

When i buy my own house in the next year or so i will be getting them back :D They will once again have a bedroom all to them shelves. <3

Hee, that is a lot of manga! Most of mine are in one big Ikea bookcase in our bedroom, and yes, some of them are double-stacked (but also, there are a couple of shelves of other favorites, like old children's books, in the bottom).

We were just talking about getting rid of some of them: I don't know that I'll ever bother re-reading Gravitation, for instance. And I should send some of smilla's back home where they belong: I have all her Hellsing and Apothecarius Argentum.
