Learned about The Young Elites hitting #4 on the NYT list right as we discovered a beautiful patch of flowers in Hood River, Oregon, all underneath a full rainbow arc. Completely overwhelmed. I love you all. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart. <3<3<3

Fiction Friday is here!  This week we’re featuring a few new manga series, a re-visioned classic, and a plain old classic.
Food Wars!  ~by Yuto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki: Soma wants to become better than his chef father, who, surprisingly, enrolls Soma in a classy culinary school.  With only a 10% graduation rate and practically run by the terrifying Erina, can he survive to become a chef? [We currently have the 1st two volumes]
Noragami: Stray God ~by Adachitoka: Yato is a homeless (and completely non-worshipped) god who wants a lavish temple.  To raise funds, he takes on odd jobs and ‘advertises’ with graffiti.  Joined by a girl with a love of MMA and a strong desire to have her wish fulfilled, he’ll rise to the top, even if he does have to scrub bathrooms to do it.  [We have the 1st volume, with more on the way]
Pride and Prejudice ~by Jane Austen, Po Tse, and Stacy King:  It’s Pride and Prejudice, manga-style!  The classic love story, snappy barbs, and ballroom drama (not to mention the frilly fashion), has never looked so good.  I wouldn’t read this version instead of the original for class, but it’s perfect for a short jaunt into Austen-land. [There’s only one volume]
 Girl Got Game ~by Shizuro Seino: Before Haruhi was crossdressing as a host, Kyo was besting the boys at basketball, as a boy at a boarding school.  Her father decided to enroll her as a boy so she could be part of the winning team, but Kyo wants to get the boy, not be one.  [We have all 10 volumes so you can binge-read this sports romance]

I don’t know when I’ll have a chance to do today’s Inktober art, but I wanted to collect the first 10 in their own post for now! Thanks for all of your feedback on the series so far!

SHOOT OKAY OOPS I’m sorry to reblog this again but I MEANT to add that if anyone is interested in purchasing the original art of any of these on 9”x12” bristol, send me a note and let me know. I really need to earn some more money to finance my trip to the UK next month, so I’m going to sell most of these for $50+shipping each. Some of them, such as Harry and Snape, I’m a little more attached to, so I may have a harder time letting them go, but I’m open to hear offers on them.
Anyway, yeah, if you’re interested, let me know! And I’ll be trying to catch up on inktober today by posting 3 new characters, so watch out for that!
