Father Anderson is batshit insane and scary as all get-out.

And while I like Seras Victoria, the way she's drawn irritates me. Those aren't boobies, they're beachballs strapped to her chest. The way her shirt accentuates them doesn't help to alleviate that impression.

(Not counting the thread aboout the video by Tom Cruise about Scientology).

Hellsing is weird. Alucard looks like a bishie, and it seesm like the Vatican and the Protestants are going to war with each other. That's in the firstfive chapters or so!

You know someone is batshit insane if their laughter is longer and louder than the carnage they've just been involved in.

The book-discount went on until today, so I got some more stuff out of it.

The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin. Because I could do with a good scare now and again, and that book gets rather creepy. Not so much with gore and blood, just suspense and the overall feeling of 'They have not just gone there!'.

The fisrt volume of Yu-Gi-Oh!. *hangs head.* I know, I know. I never really had time for the cartoon, never really liked it, and why I picked up the manga I'll never know. For a laugh, I think. It's better than I thought. I thought that it was a card-game though, going by the cartoon. Haven't seen any of those. How old is Yugi anyway, being in 10th grade?

And John Milton's magnum opus Paradise Lost. After Yu-Gi-Oh! I needed some serious literature. :P Don't hit me! I was only kidding. It reads ver nicely, not that I can follow it all at first read, but well, we'll give it time.

Anyway, I have some more things to read. ^.^

They also sell manga!

*gleeful.*

I've got Saiyuki 3 and 4. And Cowboy Bebop part 1. (Only to find out at home that it's based on the anime, instead of the other way around. *shrugs.*) I've never read the latter, don't even know what it's about, but I have heard about it, so this is a good opportunity to find out about it all.

*squees.* Saiyuki! On paper! And they handle the whole Chii Yisou/Hakkai-storyline, which is one of my favourites. I is a very happy [personal profile] bookish_dragon.

EDIT: For someone who loves that storyline, I sure don't know how to spell ChiN Yisou's name. *headdesk.*

Bah, I can't get Vol 9. Stupid site's not cooperating with me. Ah well, it's not like I've finished the rest yet, it's just irritating.

Still major *squee!*-love on my part. Me like Saiyuki. ^.^

*deplores lack of icon-space.*

And I'm still blaming Boz for all this, so there.

Dearest [livejournal.com profile] boz4pm,

I hold you fully responsible for my squeeing over Saiyuki Gaiden. You enabler, you. The same goes for [livejournal.com profile] vile.

Giggling love,

Yattara, who just loves men in glasses.
