Eigentlich wäre ich ja stolz auf meine Neuzugänge, denn diesen Monat habe ich es geschafft keine neuen Reihen zu beginnen und selbst die Reihenfortsetzungen sehr einzudämmen. Doch dann kam meine Azubine und hat mir Mangaclassics gezeigt. Der Verlag, der Klassiker als Manga adapiert. Ich liebe Klassiker (Shakespeare in Love) und ich liebe Manga. Mein Todesurteil, ihr seht ja selbst. Das wars mit dem kontrollierten Mangaeinkauf diesen Monat 😀 Aber sie sind einfach wunderschön, deswegen freu ich mich einfach über die Investition!
