Hi guys. I’m really late on this because I had this as a draft for one and a half months.
Btooom! has a manga. I’ve followed it for one and a half years.
Btooom! also has an anime. I’ve followed it for one and a half months.
Thus, if you’re following the anime, there will probably be spoilers ahead; however, this is a shounen battle manga – you know that Sakamoto’s not going to die, and spoilers shouldn’t affect you at all. Unless you’re a 14-year-old psychotic teenager with a penchant for ravishing dead bodies. In which case you might be (excusably) shocked at my profoundly astute recognition of your identity:
Teenagers AREN’T THAT SHORT»
Oh jeez. It’s been two months since my last post on this wonderful manga, and yesterday, I ran through the whole thing in thirteen chapters.
You’d expect me to continue rambling about crap nobody cares about in this post like I do with all of my manga quarterly reviews, but NOPE. Instead, I’ll ramble (spoilers-free!) about why YOU should immediately DROP EVERYTHING. CALM DOWN.
HAVE SEX. READ THIS MANGA.
YOU WA SPANISH, because that’s what Spanish people do. They 1) drop everything 2) calm down 3) have sex 4) are shocked
Even though today’s a Professional Development Day (read: no school), I still didn’t make a post! So have this post that isn’t really a post! I’ll make it into a real post later today! Or tomorrow! Or next week! Probably next month or next year, though… I’m sure you guys are excited!
That’s not an excited face»
It’s time for a post about manga.
Read the previous post (which I actually just wrote, yesterday) to understand what the heck these manga posts are about. With that over with, it’s time for some verbal diarrhoea~!
Actually, ‘textual diarrhoea’»
Let’s keep this short. Why? Because I need to run through another 13 chapters of this manga to write RRR Manga Quarterly Review 6. Why? Because I need a post for today. Why? Because today’s not actually March 27th, today’s April 22nd, and this post has been Rewritten. Why? Because I didn’t write a post on March 27th. Why? Because I was busy reading 13 chapters of this manga to write this post. Why? So I can run through another 13 chapters of this manga to write RRR Manga Quarterly Review 6.
Because RRR’s over.
Why is this bad? It isn’t. I just need to keep this short.
That is to say, stop losing my gym shorts»
I really don’t want to hop on the bandwagon. The thing is, I was the first person in all of the blogs I read to write a post about Harisugawa, or, in fact, to write three posts about Harisugawa. So I’m not the one hopping on the bandwagon. I was always on the bandwagon.
It’s hard to break out of old blogging habits.
Everything changes slowly, and with time. Before, my posts were lengthened summaries (an oxymoron) of the manga, and nobody wanted to read them. Then, eventually, they changed to be more about my thoughts about the manga, and nobody wanted to read them. After a while, they changed to be more humorous and entirely unrelated to the manga, and nobody wanted to read them. But through all of these, one thing has stayed in common: I structure my posts around my images.
Yes, my images. I place my images in my post first, and then fill the gaps up with words. Sometimes, I swap the pictures around a bit to make the post a bit more coherent, but generally, images go before words. This is why, in none of my recent (read: a year ago) posts, you never see several images in succession followed by a long wall of words. It’s always either images and words mixed well together, or an image followed by a long wall of text.
What am I saying? I’m saying that I’m writing this post in class, and as I’m writing this post in class, I don’t actually have access to my images for this post. So, I’m writing this post with words first, and then filling the gaps up with images.
Not that it’s going to make much of a difference.
Make a difference, subtract 3 from 2»
I was right.
Christmas is OVEROHOHOHOHOH»
Well, the past three posts were all rewrite historys. Coincidence? I THINK NOT
How couldn’t I»
Once again I’m late, but I HAVE AN EXCUSEPLANATION!
A series of events caused this DISASTER:
1. Yesterday, I was “busy” because I was “working” on my “socials project”, and didn’t even draft a post;
2. At last block, a “friend” *cough cough houraicough guycough cough* had a watch that was late by four minutes;
3. I didn’t catch the bus I usually went on because I thought only the first bell had rang due to my friend’s watch;
4. The bus I did catch was actually late.
5. In this sticky situation, I would usually pull up some random Ore no Kouhai/Oreimo Animated Commentary post, but the next Ore no Kouhai‘s not out yet, and the commentary is over! Add that along to how I’m not blogging Ben-To, Horizon, nor Majikoi anymore, how my Fall Mid-Season Review isn’t even close to finished, and how it’ll take me hours to write a Winter Season Preview, and you’ll notice that – SPANISH SHOCK – I don’t have any posts to write! This is the only post that I /can/ write!
Yeah, I can imagine your faces right now.
They look like this:
Got your nose»
I don’t even know why I’m reading this…
A fishy tale»
“HOW DID YOU BEAT ME IN THE MATH CONTEST?!”
“Also, why am I covered with ketchup?”»
Seems it’s American Thanksgiving /and/ Google’s also reduced the damages of their recent change by adding a new ‘display density’ function. But, I LIVE IN CANADA AND THANKSGIVING IS GONE, and I DON’T TRUST GOOGLE ANYMORE AFTER THAT STUPID, STUPID CHANGE IN THE FIRST PLACE!
My face this week:
With a goatee :(»
Long post coming up ahead. If you don’t want to read my post, read the manga, Shitsurakuen – all I can say is that it is pretty cool.
That’s ‘pretty’ /and/ ‘cool’»
SIDNET, but what is she disposing of? The clothes or the people?!
It hasn’t been a month since my previous post, and 13 more chapters have already been released…
Who MANGAS that fast»
[Since this MQR is about Jesus, I’d like to present to you, the final quarter of the God’s Spell of Tatsuya, outlining Madoka’s death and ascension into Heaven. Though Madoka suffered much less than Jesus may have suffered, and her sacrifice may not have been a sacrifice at all, both saved many people (except not really because magical girls still die and Christianity, well, I’m not going to talk about that.]
what is this…
Hand x Red dropped by mangaka at chapter 19…

(Hey, Batoto‘s layout changed! So last night, when I was writing this post, I was going to Batoto to get some screenshots but SUDDENLY, MAINTENANCE! ):
I should now be on vacation (hopefully not at the setting of Btooom!), so wow I’m rushed to write posts (and man, this post is loooooooong). Five posts to write today (from the Criticism post hopefully to Buyuden 21).
Blame bad branders, but boy, Btooom! begins by ‘b’, just like Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, Bakuman, Beelzebub, Bleach, Blood Lad, Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, and Buyuden.
