Fragmentary posts and manga recommendations (please)

Yi Yuan noted that I should write more. To accede to his request, here I am with another post of mine. Recently, I’d been fragmented with my posts and didn’t really manage to talk about a single topic consistently and constantly: that’s because most of my mind was into what we call here the hell week, a week in which all major requirements and exams compound and entrench you. I had to alienate and remove myself from the computer to the extent of not being able to watch H&C II ep9 just yet (and you guys know how much I love H&C II). That aside, I’ve been reading manga recently, in particular Ogure Ito’s (Oh! Great!) works, like Silky Whip and Naked Star and had already finished those two. I also read the NHK manga, where, although highly depressing and depraved, forges an atmosphere of a pensive melancholy (and intense thought) that is highly satisfying to the manga-reader who seeks something deeper. That’s why I posted on them before รขโ‚ฌโ€œ NHK is, indeed, something Dostoevskian and something wonderful to read.

I was planning to read Hot Gimmick, but Cherryon (Sasa) told me not to, because it was a bunch of crap. I researched about it further and discovered that it was about a masochistic girl and a sadistic guy. Knowing the fact that Sasa knows a lot about good anime and manga, I just avoided it. I’d like to know your opinions regarding this manga.

Drat, this post is going to get fragmented once more. Oh well, there’s nothing I could do about it.

I recently procured the OP and ED of Kamisama Kazoku kindly uploaded by a very popular co-anime blogger (whose name I will not mention because he may be in trouble if I do) :), and I must say it’s among the best OPs and EDs of this year. They possess a jumpy and happy beat, and are just pure fun.

I’d like to ask for manga recommendations from you guys. I’ve been having a problem with my HD space so much that I’ve had to resort to simply reading manga. Thankfully I’ve discovered NHK. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Dude, you are in the Philippines.. Things like hd and dvd burners are cheap there.

    Hell, I even asked my dad to buy me a 500gb harddrive there and its price is 40% lower than the price here in the states.

    I haven’t read any new mangas recently. I usually favor manga epics like Basara, Angel Sanctuary, Airen. On occasion I nibble on shoujo mangas like Vampire Knight, Love Monster and Maria Sama ga mitteiru or anything else that takes my fancy.

    I have problems with HD space too. I have 200 gigs of HD and its almost full. I’m too lazy to burn the files on DVDs T.T Every two months or so, I say ‘what the heck’ and erase animes by the gigabytes. You should try it, its actually quite liberating! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’m doing that right now, actually.

    And tritoch, believe it or not, it’s not as cheap as it seems. And since I’m a guy living off a scholarship (which means meager subsistence, one that is enough for daily, quotidian life), buying a new HD is out of the question. If that were an option, believe me, I’d have asked for it. But we’re (our family, that is) probably on the lower rung of the middle class so that isn’t really feasible.

    You have 200 GBs; I have 40. T_T

    Two new studies show why some people are more attractive for members of the opposite sex than others.

    The University of Florida, Florida State University found that physically attractive people almost instantly attract the attention of the interlocutor, sobesednitsy with them, literally, it is difficult to make eye. This conclusion was reached by a series of psychological experiments, which were determined by the people who believe in sending the first seconds after the acquaintance. Here, a curious feature: single, unmarried experimental preferred to look at the guys, beauty opposite sex, and family, people most often by representatives of their sex.

    The authors believe that this feature developed a behavior as a result of the evolution: a man trying to find a decent pair to acquire offspring. If this is resolved, he wondered potential rivals. Detailed information about this magazine will be published Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

    In turn, a joint study of the Rockefeller University, Rockefeller University and Duke University, Duke University in North Carolina revealed that women are perceived differently by men smell. During experiments studied the perception of women one of the ingredients of male pheromone-androstenona smell, which is contained in urine or sweat.

    The results were startling: women are part of this repugnant odor, and the other part is very attractive, resembling the smell of vanilla, and the third group have not felt any smell. The authors argue that the reason is that the differences in the receptor responsible for the olfactory system, from different people are different.

    It has long been proven that mammals (including human) odor is one way of attracting the attention of representatives of the opposite sex. A detailed article about the journal Nature will publish.
