Manga & Book Haul | December 2020
Okay, so I’m sorry that I’m writing this in 2021 but in fairness, what better way to start the year on this site than showing you how much we’re both drowning in manga now?
Of course December meant Christmas, but it also meant my birthday so… my own collection has grown exponentially. Some have been impulse buys but I’ve also been a bit spoiled by friends, my family, Jordan’s family and Jordan.
Anyway, read on to check out what we amassed last month!
Jordan’s Manga Haul
Jordan spent most of this month catching up on updating his Naruto 3-in-1 collection. For Christmas he got the Fullmetal Alchemist 4-Panel Comic book and the Art of Fullmetal Alchemist. He also bought himself most of the Legend of Zelda manga and a couple of Dragonball Super volumes too.
(I bought him this adorable Alphonse Pop! for Christmas, and some other bits but this is clearly most important as it has kittens!)
My Manga Haul
Okay so first up, I finished my current physical collection of Jujutsu Kaisen off by picking up volume 5. This was so difficult that I basically only had chance to by doing click and collect in the Waterstones in Doncaster (which I went to go get a tattoo from, I’ll post that another day… maybe in a collection post of all our Pokémon tattoos?). Significance of being Doncaster, I basically took an hour and a half train trip to be able to pick it up, but that’s awesome because it means one of my fave current series is doing super well!
Whilst I was in the Waterstones I also saw volume 1 of Norigami Stray God, and I recently watched and enjoyed the anime so that came home with me too! I um, fell into Travelling Man when I got back to Manchester and so Dr STONE volumes 1-3 and Norigami 2-4 also came home with me…
For my first Secret Santa with a few friends I then got Dr STONE volumes 4-6, so I’ve got a good start on that now!
This is becoming slightly too wordy for a haul so… bullets for the rest it is, if they don’t have a reason I just caved and bought them myself:
- Tokyo Ghoul full collection (birthday present off Jordan)
- Death Note full collection (birthday present off my Mum and Nan)
- Parasyte Volume 4 and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 3 Volume 8 (birthday present off Jordan’s Nan)
- Tokyo Ghoul: re full collection and Tokyo Ghoul: re Illustrations: zakki (Christmas presents off Jordan)
- Black Clover 16-22 (Christmas present off Jordan’s Mum and Dad)
- Parasyte Volume 5 and Spellhacker by MK England (Christmas present off Jordan’s Nan)
- Tokyo Ghoul Illustrations: zakki
- Noragami Stray God Volumes 21-22
- Blue Exorcist Volumes 9-10
- Black Clover 16.5 Official Guide in Japanese
- Black Clover Volume 1 (LootCrate edition) and 23
I also got an adorable birthday package from ‘Furb Squad’, a group full of lovely people I met when I first started out book blogging and throughout. It was packed by the super lovely Blue who even put some of my fave sweets in!
Presents below are from the following lovely bloggers (psst if you wanna follow great people here’s the best list you’ll get):
Last but not least, my Furb Squad Secret Santa was Moon who gifted me the Iggy plush above and Fierce Fairytales: & Other Stories to Stir Your Soul by Nikita Gill.
