The Manga Chapters Are Mocking Me!

Seriously, so yesterday I get the alert that Blue Exorcist is out the day AFTER Mason and I podcasted, and then, last night, another one came in--Shingeki no Kyojin #61 (aka Attack on Titan.)

To that end, I've written up YET ANOTHER review for the Mangakast page:

In a nutshell, I'm just not sure about this "The End" to the political goings-on in Shingeki no Kyojin. As I say in my review, it seems a bit... simple, which doesn't bode well for the manga's conclusion in general. But, I shall wait and see.

My Unsolicited Opinion of Things

Yeah, you so didn't ask.  But, I'm going to tell you anyway.  The new Ms. Marvel title is fairly frickin' awesome.  I have a couple of caveats (one, actually,) but I give it my full endorsement.  I wrote a whole extensive post about it over on my alter ego's Dreamwidth page:

Also? Mason and I managed to miss the publication of the latest chapter of Ao no Exorcist/Blue Exorcist by ONE DAY, so I wrote up a review of it over on MangaKast:

The Ever-Moving MangaKast

The schedule for the publication of our manga keeps getting shifting, but we're trying to stay on top of it!  To that end, Mason and I have published our 24th podcast: 24: Otaku in the Basement.  In it we discuss the recent chapters of Bleach, One Piece, Toriko, and a new manga I started reading Hitogatana.  If you're the sort, check it out!  Enjoy!

Tate's Tuesday!

Having completely missed last week thanks to internet fail and school starting with a bang, I am back today with a new weekly installment of her work-in-progress, serialized sequel to Precinct 13 on Wattpad. Check it out! In this one, Valentine FINALLY shares some secrets...

I don't know what else I have to report. I spent part of the weekend reviewing the e-book mark-up of my AngeLINK short story, "The Case of the Missing Devil Child," which Wizard's Tower Press is offering as part of the full AngeLINK e-book bundle that people purchased as a premium for (there are still a few left, btw.) Similarly, I need to go over the proofs for the e-version of Resurrection Code, so we can get that out the door.

I'm also working hard on revising the "seekrit" project I alluded to in the previous post. So, soon there will be EVEN MORE places to read my stuff.

Our cat Inky gets to go to the vet today. He's been having litter box trouble again. This isn't a new problem, but we had it under control, or at least in a more tolerable way. Something seems to have happened--either he panicked after all our various vacations or he's got some new irritation in his bladder. We thought the vet ought to have a look, at any rate. Fingers crossed that it's something fixable. Shawn is kind of at wit's end with all the extra laundry he's caused.
