    I had to go back and check my volumes since I haven't read them in over a year. Volume 1 first 3 signatures have detached from the paper/spine (sorry I can't remember what it's called), due to poor gluing. Volume 6 is sloppily glued as well but no issues yet. 5 is noticeably better than all of the others but the rest look ok. None have any gutter loss that I can recall (there aren't many two page spreads anyway).

    This made me go check through some of my other books and now I found the bottom of my Bride's Story volume 7 wasn't glued. Now I need to get that fixed.

    Pick ups from the last couple of weeks. Tried out Dimension W and really enjoyed it. Art was surprisingly good. Rising of the Shield Hero's release schedule continues to be a mess. Vol 3 was listed for May and it shipped out March. Vol 2 was listed for late April and I got it in early February. Glad to get them earlier but I'd rather it have a consistent release schedule. Vol 4 just got listed for May so they can't mess that up at least. Excited to read Tokyo ESP vol 4, finally finish vol 3 and it was fantastic. Vertical's done a great job with this series, can't believe they'll have it caught up by November (14 volumes in a year and 1 month).

    Hope IST will have that Akira, I will want to pick it up, but $200 is a bit pricey.
    I brew the beer you drink. What's your super power?

    I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed for IST giving it that first week discount bump. Other than that, Rightstuffanime usually gives around 27% off and when they do 33% off sales the discounts apply for pre-order material if they have it listed.

    How is Akira? I know it's famous/highly regarded, but i don't read or watch any manga. What's the story about? Does it hold up well?

    Great Akira news! although I could do without the artbook for a bit lower price.
