last week chapters had a 20% off sale, so i forced myself to go to the store. :) the real catch turned out to be the takemiya, not something i would have expected to find, and the editions (by vertical) look nice (though no dustcovers, no colour inserts, *sigh*), but large, with wide inner margin, crisply printed. this is a classic tragedy by one of the famous "24-gumi" [1] and i grabbed the 3 volume set faster than a speeding bullet.

[1] the 24-gumi were a group of mangaka born around the year 24 shouwa (1949), who were pioneers in developing what we now call "shoujo" manga (manga especially marketed to girls), incidentally also setting off the boys' love boom. it was a Really Big Deal for takemiya, a female girls' mangaka, to get published in a shounen (boys) magazine.

the vorkosigan soap opera is my "guilty pleasure" reading, in as far as i feel guilty about reading at all. :)

no? *checks online*. ah, that's why not; it's published in a collection with stories by other authors. i don't think i am a big enough fan to buy it just for that; might check whether the library has it. though it also has a catherine asaro story, hm (skolian empire -- more guilty pleasure soap opera, *snicker*)

thanks for the pointer!
