Huzzah! Issue 5 of Shonen Jump came in today.

Issue 4 was *LATE*. So late I bought it in the stores the day before it showed up here at the house (after getting an extra of issue 2, I was worried they had gotten a mixup). And now, a little over a week later, Issue 5!

OK, OK. I like comics. Japanese Comics. I think Yu-gi-oh!, Narutu, and Shaman King are the tops for now. At least, those are the ones I have in English.

if only I could read the Young Jump I have. But all I can do is look at the pretty pictures an wonder at the stories they tell.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    if you are interested in getting more Naruto, I might be able to point you to some scanslations (of varying quality) up to chapter 158.

    Y’know, scanslations just don’t work for me, and I dunno. why. Depends on who deos it, I guess. The whole “one jpeg per page” thing makes it hella-awful to read & organize (I tried w/Hikaru and didn’t get apst the first few parts).

    I’m actually wondering about the anime, and if fansubs are out for it yet….

    I’ve seen or have downloaded all of the Naruto anime up to episode 24. And now that I look, ep 25 is out.

    Check out http://www.animesuki.com.

    I kinda like the anime, but its real slow. Not much happens per episode, and when its in the middle of a story-arc, it spends about 5 minutes at the beginning recapping, then probablly another 5 minutes of random flashbacks to previous episodes, so you only get about 15 min of actual new material. Other than that, its good :)

    I tend to watch the ANBU subs, but Toriyama’s World isn’t that bad.

    Yeah, I’ve had luck at TW.

    This reminds me – I need to re-sync my Hikaru no Go mirror. And start converting them to DVD/VCD…
