Been wanting to blog all week but my brain just keeps farting and I just come up with noob drafts. Anyway, behold, my mouth-watering friends – Takashi sparkles on the cover of Lala 9! It’s a very nice wispy cover! Kudos to Midorikawa Yuki! I’ve pierced together Lala 8 and Lala 9 together in the image below to show you lot that they’re actually connected! Continue reading

Right. Let’s get up to speed. Here is the Monthly Lala July Issue with Kaichou wa Maid-sama! taking the spotlight with a very summery outlook.
And with every issue comes the every bit of news surrounding the magazine’s past, present and future serialisations. The biggest news for Lala currently is no doubt Bisco Hatori’s Ouran High School Host Club live adaption. Playing Tamaki will be Yūsuke Yamamoto & starring Haruhi will be Haruna Kawaguchi. I recognise the dude but other than that I’m pretty clueless. Not sure what to say about the casting but TV dramas never got me hyped up anyway. The only thing I’m currently obsessed with on TV is the U.K’s version of “The Apprentice.” Continue reading →
Time for Lala 4! Excitement! Excitement! I’ve been looking back at my older magazine posts and I was quite disappointed by the quality of the pictures I shared. This time round, I added extra effort to improve the quality(You can tell a big difference compared to my previous posts xD). In fact, scanning my magazines may be a good idea right about now since it might take the equivalent effort but meh.
I hope you enjoy this post, I made sure I included every single serialisation in this issue for more viewing pleasure! I think I deserve a golden star sticker like those they give elementary children!
Good day! Hope y’all had a good week-end. I know I did. In fact, I don’t even have classes on Mondays anymore so I have an extra-long weekend. Who’s J-worded? Here are some photos of Lala 3. Highly anticipated for it’s special Ouran chapter! Also, if you’re an avid fan of Mishounen Produce, it’s final chapter is in this issue. Also, I made the photos clickable now, so you can view these pics in higher resolution, just a little bigger.
This was the freebie/furoku of Lala 3, very cute no? Continue reading →
Hello hello! The weather wasn’t as cruel today so I ventured out to do some Christmas shopping. It wasn’t snowing, it was raining! Hopping from department store to the next, leaving Japan Centre, Regent Street my second final stop to get myself a copy of Lala DX. It was £12.70 – more pricey than Lala Special or Lala 1.
Anyway, Maid-sama is on the cover of this issue of Lala DX with a ski themed illustration. I’ve concluded that Maid-sama is out to take over the world:
In this issue you can find a drama CD of Harukanaru Toki No Nakade (Haruka: Beyond the Stream of Time) and two post-cards with the illustrations by Tohko Mizuno of the same series.
Dropped by Japan Centre again this weekend to pick up this issue! Sadly, they don’t stock Asuka Monthly or Aria magazine. I might try ordering Asuka online if it keeps me awake at night. I took some photos instead of scanning since it gives this personal effect 😀 and I’m too lazy to scan stuff. Anyways, Maid-sama! takes the spotlight by appearing in the beginning-of-year cover page:
I just got the December 2010 issue of Lala Special. So happy! I bought it from the Japan Centre in Regent Street, London which costed me £11.70. I couldn’t get it on the Japan Centre website since it wasn’t the normal Lala monthly magazine and the shipping fee from Amazon.jp was just crazy! The Lala Special issue differs from the parent by releasing Lala monthly’s side stories as well as a variety of one-shots from mangakas.This issue contains Ouran’s special chapter as well as a selection of previous chapters, there’s also a announcement that there will be a special one-shot sequel at the beginning of next year!(there are many other series as well, vampire knight etc. not just ouran if you’re wondering)
There’s also a set of Ouran bookmarks!!! There are 8 bookmarks as you can see:
Now I have an extra reason to look forward to reading my books.
I mainly bought this month’s special issue because of the Ouran commemoration, it’s so sad to say good-bye after 7 wonderful years. I’ll definitely cherish Ouran forever(T_T), thank you Bisco Hatori.
