Red Angel vol 1.  
Seeing as I haven't made any efforts at all to read for pleasure rather than the material given in my advertising classes, I decided to startt vaguely with something I enjoyed doing...

MANGA!

For as nerdy as it may sound, I remember I used to collect volumes and volumes of different series. It was a rampaging addiction, but it doesn’t surprise me now that I'm older because I remember feeding on these graphic novels since 4th grade. I guess it ended all after I graduated from high school, not that it didn't matter anymore to me, but I remember savoring stacks of different volumes from different series I loved in a corner of Borders when I was only able to go once or twice a month since I lived quite far away from the bookstore. So I just fed on what little "good" material I could get my hands on at a small shop in Ponce called "News Dream and Superheroes", which closed a little after I got into high school.

I usually ordered different series by catalogue, but they arrived months after, so I just settled with whatever they had in stock. Anyway, I guess I decided to randomly start to explore a bit more around the things I used to like with passion, maybe it’ll be vehicle to start gaining interest in other things.

So the purpose of this entry....


This graphic novel caught my attention last saturday browsing with Saki a few books to just chill around while we waited for some friends to go see a movie, which we ended up not going at all. Still it caught my attention seeing as I have quite a selective eye for colors and my perseption of them. When I picked it up from the shelf my sight quickly registered an aristocrat style. I'm a sucker for victorian esque and aristocrat fashions. So I quickly gained interest on the book. (*the kind of reader that falls for flashy cover art)

So this graphic novel is about  vampire siblings (*cliche much) that survive through their existence with human blood in order to live life under the sun. They're very selective about whom they'll feed on for some reason, but I guess the interesting part of it all is that they're a single person that shifts sex to it's convenience. The plot does seem repetitive enough, but I guess I'll give it a chance seeing as I've only went through the fist 30 pages. Which is basically nothing with all the graphic content.




I provided a link with a review if you'd like to see it, I'm just updating my journal since I didn't have my first period at the university ;D




I'll keep posting if I find anything else, seeing as the series isn't yet available to download anywhere :/
So if you find anything about it I'd appreciate the info :)
