Manga Haul | November 2020
First off, I have no idea where November has actually gone. I swear I wrote my October haul post just yesterday but nope, a whole month has gone by!
Bit of a quick personal update, I got a job this month! I’m working as a Digital Marketing & Ecommerce Assistant and it’s great so far, very happy to be back in the world of marketing properly.
Anyway, onwards with the manga hauls for both of us!
Jordan’s Manga Haul
November 8th was Jordan’s birthday so he’s ended up finishing his physical collection of Fullmetal Alchemist in the Fullmetal editions released so far (I am very jealous, mostly down to Volume 3). He’s also picked up The Heroic Legend of Arslan Volumes 4-13 and so I went and read them all straight away (he’s in a gaming mood so it’s fair)! Other than that he’s also bought a special Kindle from Japan so he can read more manga… eventually.

My Manga Haul
Last month I said I’d be focusing on Black Clover and I’m pretty happy cause I have for the most part! I’ve only picked up five volumes of Black Clover and some manga I’ve read digitally already. I also picked up a couple of books which aren’t quite manga but are close – Color Bleach and the Fullmetal Alchemist The Complete 4-Panel Comics. Full breakdown is as follows:
– Black Clover Volumes 10-12 and 15-16
– The Witch and the Beast Volume 1
– Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 2-4 and 6
– Bleach Volumes 1-2 and 24-25
– Color Bleach
– Fullmetal Alchemist The Complete 4-Panel Comics
Thanks to Black Friday deals, I also ordered Volumes 4 and 6 of Jujutsu Kaisen from Travelling Man! I was really surprised because the following morning it arrived at my house, quickest book delivery I’ve had! I read all of the JJK chapters out in physical through the Shonen Jump app already but I’m loving it so much that I can’t wait to have them all in a physical copy too! I liked the first volume but I didn’t really fall in love with it, but that changed massively after I watched the anime and so I went and caught up on the app!
So, of course we’ve been in lockdown this month. I can’t wait to get back to browsing shops like Travelling Man and Forbidden Planet in person again but I’ll probably leave it til after Christmas at this point – I’m not a fan of crowds as it is let alone post-lockdown, pre-Christmas panic buying crowds. Cannot wait to have a chance at finding Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 5 though! I’m heading to Doncaster for a birthday trip on Friday so I’ll probably run into Waterstones at some point and see if I can find it there… because seeing the gap for 5 is already annoying me!
Also my haul might look like a lot, but for an idea I managed to pick up all the Bleach books here for £8 off eBay, and six more I picked up in 3 for 2 deals from Forbidden Planet and Travelling Man!
Heads up though – December’s haul will be a long one, with Christmas and my birthday. I already know I’m getting all of the first part of Tokyo Ghoul for one thing off Jordan. (And my Amazon wishlist has a lot of manga…)
