  • Find someone (Nino if possible…) to draw lots and lots of manga for you around the clock.

Learn Manga by Naschi

  • Have a theme, intriguing characters and a full array of storyline genres.

Too cute♥!!

  • And “most importantly”, if your manga publication just happens to be like 3/4 of an inch or thicker be sure to employ the cutest of idol(s) for its cover =).

Manga Action June 17th, 2014 issue with large Kawaei Rina poster

Seriously though, I’m sometimes waaaaay too tempted to pass up on getting an issue of what can only be described size-wise as being not unlike a sort of “mini” phone book of sorts =P.

And when you consider how much it’s going to cost to get this mammoth sized manga magazine (with its extreme weight and dimensions) to your house it’s pretty wacky when you find yourself impulsively adding it to your shopping cart all on the account of previous said cutest of idol~♡ (and nothing else) whom just happens to be on its cover beckoning you to buy buy buy =P! Like even when you have a set shopping list and go to your favorite site, these days whenever you add anything to your cyberspace shopping cart there’ll instantly appear those ‘recommended’ ‘others also purchased’ recommendations just below your cart (・д・`*)!!!

So this time it turned out to be none other than Ricchan♡ who’s conveniently wearing an equally adorable yellow knitted bikini (。ーωー。)笑!

lollypop sucker

Yeah I admit it I’m a sucker and an easy one at that!

animated fellatio

Wait that didn’t come out as intended….I’m easily sold on a whim is what I meant to say, okay ^^.

Whew that was close!…and thank goodness for anime mosaic (。ーωー。)笑!

Oh crap (*>ω<)!! what do you mean that I lost my G rating years ago??!  (-∀-`)...

Sorry, okay back to the manga magazine with Ricchan♡ gracing its cover ^^. I don’t think I mentioned yet but Oba Mina’s in here too =)!

So anyway long story short , I ended up jacking up the shipping costs for six pages because I truly am a sucker for all things Ricchan♡….

    I think you mean “voilà”– not “wallah,” to mean look, see, or behold.

    • Thank you, typo is my middle name =P…nice to meet you =). Funny, I typed what it sounded like in my head xD and not even spell check stopped me as I somehow used an actual word with a totally different meanimg…somewhere my English teacher’s head is spinning.

    It’s so good to see Ricchan back in action! (Has Annin retired, do you know? I wouldn’t blame her if she had decided to) Love the poster! Somewhere in the printers’ warehouse is a pile of unfolded ones, I guess. They could surely sell those rolled up in cardboard tubes for the most devoted fans! Yet more amazing photos to look at. Thank you again for scanning!

    I guess that could sell manga, but if you think about it, this way you don’t really need the manga, you could get rid of all the salaried mangakas and editors and all those useless costs and sell pretty much anything else. Here’s how to get rich quick: order cheap random gadgets from China, photograph Ricchan in a bikini holding them, sell them along with the photos for 10x the cost, profit. Actually, forget the gadget and just sell the photos. Oh right, I think they do that already. Well, someone must be getting rich quickly then.

    • Is it weird that the person atop here appears to exclusively come here to correct my bad spelling/grammar? I saw that they had the same ip address as another comment of this sort in the “So whose boob is it anyway (・c_・;)?” post where I butchered the title =P….and I regularly admittedly make up words, write run on sentences, have incorrect grammar and other such wackiness in probably every post here as I tend to write on the fly so to speak as thoughts pop into my head with no form at all really and especially no editing to speak of which I’d hoped was part of my baka-charm ~*…. and so it’d probably make their head spin if they wanted to correct them all and that could take months upon months =D.

      Anyway that’s neither here nor there.

      I do like the cheap gadget approach and how it all comes full circle with only the need of the idol photo in the end =D…which by the way have you seen how much some AKB48 photos are going for on auctions these days??! It’s incredible. Incredibly scary. On a single photo I’ve seen bidding go into the hundreds of dollars which I’m just blown away by =O. A few years ago when Manoeri debuted in Ongaku Gatas…that was a dreamy~* time!!!….I went shopping or rather bidding on eBay for some photos of hers and while I did win a few I totally lost others when the price just skyrocketed beyond comprehension =O. I guess for with manga publications being so costly due to shipping alone as the magazines are really really inexpensive themselves, I tend to get attracted towards getting just a few when its cover hits my fancy~♥ =).

      BTW some of the manga in there is quite explicit =O! Like in this one manga this girl’s boyfriend isn’t making himself sexually available and when it comes up in a conversation with one of her girl friends, that friend suddenly goes all lesbian lover on her =D! It’s quite tantalizing* (you know only in my head as I don’t believe I’d ever be able to do such things* I’ll just say =P) and I must say very detailed with the imagery which was quite the shock =O. I sometimes wonder just whom are the target audience of some publications as there can be such a seemingly wide age gap between the subject matter within.

        That is weird. BTW, it’s still incorrect in the post, at least according to him it should have this funny accent in the last a, as in “voilà” =P just kidding of course. “wallah”, I’d have no trouble understanding that in context, and I’d probably think it’s some Hawaiian or MorningBerryan saying and be happy with that. I’m so used with reading text in languages I’m not even close to native in that by now I don’t care at all what words anyone is using, as long as I can take meaning from them. I like all the run on sentences though, any other way and it wouldn’t be MB.

        Hum, I’ve seen some individual photos before while browsing on Amazon. I thought they were a nuisance actually, you look up members names and all these photos show up, and some of them are up on the 1000+ yen range where I think they’re PBs and then have to pay attention to all those little kanji to figure them out… I’m afraid I haven’t seen the appeal of single photos yet.

        • I was thinking that he really got my brain confused there as when I was typing that I was literally thinking about a sound effect of saying tada!…in a way of saying check it out I suck at scanning but look at what I’ve done =P! I wrote wallah like the sound that came to mind but anyway I’m weird and I write weird things all the time so I guess that makes it normal =). Ohhhh I love that…like having my own sort of language and I do often times make up words shamelessly even though spell check is asking me what are you doing with your keyboard?? =O I guess if I began writing properly it would be then weird wouldn’t it? =D Anyway enough about my weirdness, here I get to bother friends with it every single day ^^.

          It’s absolutely wild at how many photos for every idol imaginable and just how non stop the idol photo collectible world is!!!! And fans are literally living up to the fanatic in their title as it’s jaw dropping at how much bidding goes on…makes you not want to get involved no matter how cute or rare the photo is! I love when a fan sells them in large bunches as it seems much more economical and with fans more likely to have some of them already it gives way for a fan like me whom doesn’t have that massive of an AKB photograph collection so I probably won’t have any doubles to speak of =) The official photos which come with music releases seem to be the most in demand and then there’s even theater versions….its just mind boggling how much money this is making for the AKB empire =O. I still love my H!P photos from years ago….I’ll probably decorate the sidebar with a few favorites like Aichan’s toga photographs and Kamei♥ of course ^^.

    Hey MB! I do realize it’s been around a million years since my last comment, and for that, I’m sorry. I’m just happy I could leave one right after phr. Anyway. I thought I’d be more drawn to buying these magazines featuring scantily-clad ladies on their covers once I made my way to Japan, but I found (quite unexpectedly, actually) that I’m actually much more often just buying the volumes of the manga I like at the bookstore. I guess it helps that I have a bookstore just as near me here as the nearest 7/11… and it’s even open until midnight. I didn’t ever think I’d consider physical volumes as being quite this convenient, but that they are.

    • OMG it’s Henkka?? =O ka? About a million and a half actually so you really are a vampire….I sometimes imagined that you could have easily slipped into Brad Pitt’s role in Interview with the Vampire =D.

      Seriously though, no need to apologize as life gets busy for sure and oh I was just reading that you’ve been living in Japan since last year…that’s so great!!! It would be amazing to have access within walking distance to shop for manga, here it was a bit of tongue in cheek humor (i have a weird sense of humor you probably know) as I rarely purchase these mammoth sized manga as although stand alone they’re amazingly affordable at around $3-$4 when I consider the jump in shipping due to their size and weight I tend to shy away from getting these very often. So then it has to be all about the cover to excite me and get me all hot and bothered and you know sometimes an idol can actually do that =)….and then I add to cart immediately!! I think if I had easy access to I’d end up purchasing stand alone series much more albeit there’s no idols on them to speak of….so anyway how have you been? Which area are you residing in if you don’t mind my asking? You know in case I’m near enough to the area when I visit and that a way you can show me a good time….I meant show me around o(*´∀`)o゛。

      Stand alone volumes are the best. The trick is to get them as one complete collection once the series is over, because then it counts as a single item on Amazon and shipping is almost free, relatively speaking. Although if you can just walk over to the store, I guess it’s literally speaking.
