I have been insanely busy lately. For the next three weeks I will be taking drivers education classes for every day of the week. This means that when class ends at 7:00 PM, I will have three hours to write reviews, do homework, eat dinner and write the script to Jouhou Cast (assuming that I don't get home at 7:30 PM due to my parents being late in picking me up). If I sleep at 10:00 PM, I will get about 8 hours of sleep, as I wake up every morning at 6:00 AM to go jogging. Please forgive me if I don't post as often, as I barely have time to do my homework, meaning that I would be lucky to actually write a paragraph before bedtime. To add insult to injury, I also have two projects during the three weeks, meaning that this month is going to be hell. I pray the teachers are feeling merciful during the weekend.
I have yet to type up my review of volume two of Bamboo Blade. I will also complete the reviews of volume 4,5,6 and 7 of Black God, somewhere this weekend. Jouhou Cast will also be completed on schedule, so no one has to worry about that. I will post more often when I complete my drivers education classes somewhere at the end of the month.
The opening and ending can only be described as exceptional. Those who actually read this know that I love Fullmetal Alchemist. I have loved the first anime series, and I am currently OBSESSED with Brotherhood and the manga. While the first anime series was great, Brotherhood and the manga both have a plot on a larger scale, with all the character being given more depth. While I do feel that some of the homunculus are given less depth(Lust, Envy and Sloth), the amount of depth other characters are given make this easily forgivable.
To start off the new year (and decade), I have created a podcast for Manga Jouhou, where I will be creating weekly scanlation reports, announcing what reviews were published on Manga Jouhou, and news highlights.
