I’m a scaredy cat, I will admit. I don’t like horror. I can’t stand the thought of intentionally being scared. So, why would I try to read a manga that literally has “horror” as the genre on the back? My best friend of about twelve years loves it, and yeah, she can handle a whole lot more than I can. But I was reading it over her shoulder one day, and I decided to give it a try. As of now, I’m on the 42nd chapter, in Volume 5. This would be nearing the end of season one, I believe. And before you ask, no, I don’t plan on watching the anime. I’ve decided that I can handle black and white still drawings better than colored animations.
As many of you may know, I’ve been working on a Maka Albarn cosplay for several months. Well, all of those hours of labor on my costume and prop finally paid off when I went to Detroit’s anime convention: Youmacon. The convention ran from November 4th through 6th. I went two of the three days: Saturday and Sunday, which is more than previous years.
