[Manga] Mini Review – Mermaid Boys Vol.2


This is a little belated review of Mermaid Boys Vol.2 by Yomi Sarachi, been a bit busy lately haha. You’d think that after reviewing the first volume I wouldn’t feel the need to review the second volume because I might have the same opinion but this volume has changed a bit of my opinion on it…

Anyway, I’ll be addressing some spoilers for Volume 2 in this post so if you plan on reading it yourself and don’t want to be spoiled then don’t read the rest of this review. All I can say is that I don’t see this series going far, even if it pains me to say it. Sorry if I’m being a wet blanket, its just that I didn’t feel it in this volume… It still made me laugh but whenever I think about what it’ll provide in the next volumes I start to think that it might not last long before the conclusion.

[Manga] Mini Review – Mermaid Boys Vol.1

Finally the first bounded volume of Yomi Sarachi’s Mermaid Boys has released! This volume contains the first four chapters released in Aria, according to Sarachi’s author comments at the end of the volume, it seemed like if Aria hadn’t reached out, Mermaid Boys prolly wouldn’t become a fully fledged comic/manga. It took her about 3 years later to get her short comics on twitter to evolve into something bigger and here it is.

I talked about the first chapter here, in a post where I bought an issue of Aria. I bought this manga at CD Japan for about 580 yen (tho it was hard to find it when it was listed under the title ‘Marmaid Boys’ and they misspelt Sarachi’s name as ‘Chiyomi Sara’, which ironically she addressed in her author comment at the end of the book).

[Book] Bunny talks about ARIA, Yomi Sarachi’s new manga and shopping with HMV

2016-04-13 22.23.04

Just the other day my first order from HMV came in the mail, which was my first ever purchase of ARIA and wow, I never thought it’d be this big.

I thought I’d talk about it because I never thought of HMV as a shopping option but thankfully someone was kind enough to direct me to this shop when all of the copies of ARIA was sold out in the exact same day it was released on CD Japan (Curse you Model Trio, you sell a product too good it doesn’t even survive a day).
