Just what have I gotten myself into?

Well, I've started to read my Ranma volume and now I'm addicted to it just as I'm addicted to so many other things. The only problem: My favorite store has the next THREE volumes on back order. They also have the first volume listed as "out of stock," so I guess I made it just in time.

So far it seems the anime didn't stray too far from the manga. A lot of the same things have happened and it's just as funny and good. I've been reading a chapter before bed each night. I kind of want to read this slowly since I can't seem to get more volumes quickly due to either stock availability or lack of money. That way, perhaps, when I finish the volume I might have the next one waiting!

Where I left off, we just met Dr. Tofu. He's so cute and funny. And I just love how he scared the crap out of Ranma with Betty. Like everyone just walks around with a skeleton named Betty, sheesh.

I'll be curious to see if i notice any differences in the manga than what I saw in the anime as I read along.

That's all for now. I just thought I'd share some of my thoughts on the manga I've read thus far. I wish they hadn't flipped it or Inuyasha. I am so used to the scans that I sometimes get lost because I'm reading right to left instead of left to right. It takes me a couple minutes to remember to read the way I've read all my life, which makes me kind of laugh.

The part I can't wait for in the Ranma manga: P-Chan! Need I say more?

Until next time,

Far Away Eyes

wow... you guys really think about this, huh? I dunno, it just doesn't bother me. I read the scanlations and it took me a while to get used to reading it "backwards" but I'm ok with it now. I think one of the reasons I'm not so bothered by the flipped images is my husband's tendency to "FIND" things of that nature online for me. So I'm generally not paying good money for it. "You get what you pay for," you know? That way I'm not bothered by poor quality or flipped images.

That and my "observational skills" are on the weak side. Yeah.. I am sooo Calamity Kate.

I didn't really "think" about the whole flipping thing until I totally noticed it after I started buying the VIZ manga and was reading it and went "WTF, Sesshomaru is backwards." The odd thing is, in the same volume he had everything backwards and then a couple pages later he was normal. go figure. I tend to be odd like that about observation. I think it was ingrained into me while I worked to get my creative writing degree. They talked so much about observing things around you and I think I took it to heart.
