Completely agree with the Shinji Ikari Raising Project review. I've bought up to Vol 8, so I feel I may as well keep buying it (Ocd), but yeah, it's incredibly dull.

It's a sad world we live in when Naruto is the best-rated title for the week.

Don't worry, Sailor Moon #3 is out in a few weeks so that won't last.

I think it was well-deserved considering the content. The review was spot on, so cry some more.

It's still Naruto. Even if this particular volume was good - and I'm not saying it wasn't - apparently no other volume this week was as good as it, let alone better. There's something effed up about that.

And these tears? They're manly tears; deal with it.

True. But I wasn't saying that it was a bad week, rather I was expressing disappointment that Naruto was the best-rated.

It even ain't the first time it is the best-rated title. Deal with it

Poor Killer Bee. I heard he was even going to have his own single debut this year. Nice Naruto review, but I'm also waiting for the final Fullmetal Alchemist one.

I agree with Eric P. up to a certain point. I liked both "Angelic Days" and "The Shinji Ikari Raising Project." I found them both enjoyable mixes of science fiction and romantic comedy. I never got into "Campus Apocalypse" because it was a lot like the original version,too dark and gloomy for my tastes.
I have yet to read volume eight but I think I can wait for it.

As for me, Detective Conan 41, argh! I just started 39. I hate when I fall behind on manga. I need to finish Sailor Moon 2 as well.

I could only read the first volume of The Shinji Ikari Raising Project, and wondered how long could the series be. There is not a big storyline, but it appears they try to make it longer. Campus Apocalypse has a feeling similar to other shonen and shojo series removing the mechas in favor of weapons for the characters to use. I actually didn't finish that series either, so I guess I should try reading one.
