I've been reading the Patlabor manga, which I'm finding extremely enjoyable. It's interesting that every Patlabor series introduces the characters differently.

I've also been reading a newer manga, Freezing. I liked the anime, and the manga is fun too. It also helps that they're being released in an omnibus format, with two volumes included per edition.

I got Toppou GP for the Kindle. I had Gerald Rathkolb from the AWO podcast tell me about this on his twitch stream the other night. This also interest me since ive been keeping up with MotoGP for 3 seasons because I found it on TV one day and it just caught my interest. I guess my interest for automotive racing goes back to my obsession with Initial D back in high school (and being honest it never went away, not when I got the arcade machine for it in my garage), so ive always been curious on other stuff out there based on automotive racing. I have some series to check out that I know off that i'll get to eventually.

I really enjoyed Galko-chan, so I was happy to see that vol 1 covers most of the anime & from there on out its new stuff! Tho I do kinda hope they make a second season, that'd be fun.

It's a very informative book on the behind the scenes info between Sega and Nintendo (so far its been focusing on Sega of America and Kalinske trying to make the Genesis more marketable to the SNES at the time). I'm roughly a 5th of the way into it and found it to be very engaging and worth my interest. I still got stuff on kindle that I need to read that I'll one day get too.
I'm always interested in what happened during the early years in console wars Japan. People over here assume that companies like Nintendo give their foreign staff complete autonomy, which is seldom the case. They still have to report to the head office in Japan. I see people over here recognizing the heads of companies like Nintendo of America but when you ask them who is heading up Nintendo in Japan, I get blank looks. It's like some secret empire that no one knows anything about. I'm glad at least that some Japanese games creators are recognized though...

I've just caught up with Gunnm/Battle Angel Alita: Mars Chronicle. I'm very excited to see where they take the story from here with all this history and context exploration pertaining to the Gunnm Universe.

I read the other two Alita series shortly prior and am always reading a Junji Ito work of some sort (currently reading Dissolving Classroom).

Hmm, wha? The Mars Chronicle actually started up?
Blah. I read all the Last Order stuff as it came out and then during the gap I stopped paying attention. Thank you for reminding me.

Picked up the first volume of Devilman Grimoire and I've really been digging it, especially all the little changes that were made to the Devilman mythology. The artwork is fantastic, and I like how they turned Miki into a literal witch, complete with pointy hat and cape!
