Almost got caught by LJ's joke, did get caught by a fave HakuYou fan artist this morning (claimed on her blog that she was closing her site... to go to Madagascar for 9 months <-- didn't read that until several minutes after reading the initial "notice"), and laughed at BeijingTushu. ^^; I'm not batting so well this year, so I think I'll disappear off the face of the earth until at least the second. ^^;

Otherwise... I did *not* need another reason to want to buy the bi-monthly Cobalt magazines! >.<;; Unfortunately, since buying Cobalt (ostensibly enough for HakuYou SSs) I have since become somewhat caught by the Victorian Rose Tailor novel series and want to know how the current story being revealed will develop next.

I haven't actually read the novels yet, but from what I've gathered, it's a sweet fantasy/romance about a dressmaker Christine who runs Rose Colours, a dress shop in a town outside London, and her assistant Pamela. The first story is with Sherlock-the son of a duke-who commissions a dress for his younger sister. The dresses Chris makes are rumoured to make people's love come true.

I'm reading the SSs ~14 books later, and the story is currently touching on Pamela's past and hinting at something in Christine's past (and why they left London?). ^^;

*sigh* I guess this is the drawback to buying the magazines and actually reading the other stories in them. >.> Sadly, I've only read through 2.5 stories so far. Fortunately(? at least for the pocket book...) Maria-sama ga Miteru hasn't grabbed me so far, so I might be safe from that (long) series. ^^;

And... male parental has just notified me that he's finished the (4oz) package of Ceylon tea that I got ~2 weeks ago. O_O;; Umm... So much for my having chai. ^^;

Arina Tanemura

So you buy Cobalt? Then I have a non-HakuYou question for you. :] Has Arina Tanemura started a short little (like 2-3 pages) manga in the most recent volume of Cobalt? From putting her latest blog entry through freetranslation.com that's what I got, but I'm not sure it's right... :/

Thanks so much for anything you might know (even if you don't know anything about what I'm asking :] )!

Quick Q (Mar issue is upstairs, so I might as well ask first). Do you mean in the Mar issue or the May issue which just came out in Japan? ^^; Also, could you give a link to her blog/website just in case? I'll take a look and get back to you on it though. ^_^

Ah, okay. I don't have the May issue yet, but a quick check in the March issue as well as the blog and Cobalt's site all tell me that there is indeed 'something' there. ^^; From what I've read, it's a manga essay? But the blog was saying the manga version will be later. *confused* Beyond that, it's apparently 3 pgs long for this first time and will be 2 pgs in subsequent issues. Will write about it once I get the May issue. ^^;
