OP 427
Back in Sweden! Safely! With no problems on my end. Even got my overweight suitcase and over-legal-limit carry-on through with no problems. So that was me.

That my fiancé and mother both managed to make the calculation that leaving Japan on Friday morning = returning to Sweden on Saturday evening... well. That's not really that important anymore. It got sorted out, because if I can handle a year by myself in Japan, I can handle being stranded in Arlanda airport!

But rather than talk about the move-in cleaning we're doing now (gotta make space for my manga & doujinshi!) - One Piece! The new chapter! The SQUEE on my end, reading and flailing and squee~! I'm so so grateful to whoever scans and shares the whole of Shounen Jump, 'cause - good reading. Great reading on a day when I also found out that my lovely little shounen Mieru Hito is (finally) getting kicked out. (It made me a bit sad, but at the same time - it's kind of... fitting. I knew it was going to end sooner or later, but to have it end just as my time in Japan does? It almost feels like it means something.)

Odacchi's a genius. His characters are genius. His writing is genius. That big panel, with Luffy and "Usopp" and... I don't really have any words anymore, it's all coming out as verbal keyboard mashing because of the perfect, and FINALLY, and it's making me so happy. ♥

...I still need sleep, yes.

Glad you made it back in one piece!

so glad you made it back safely! tho' I was sorry to hear about the airport mix-up...I confess there is a sort of horrible black comedy to it, but it must have been a trial when you first got there! *hugs*

and sorry to hear about Mieru Hito...though I agree, it's appropriate. (you can get scans of it, right? since you did say all of SJ...) When does it end?

and OP, oh yes!! the last couple chapters have been made of squee (I'm reading the scans - can't wait for it to be published! ^^;) (did Luffy really not know it was Usopp? oh, Luffy...)

I actually handled it very well, and then - well. Uh. I was either laughing hysterically or crying, I'm not really sure which, and most of it was just because I was so damn exhausted by that point. It wasn't exactly what any of us had imagined (my mom and sweetheart had made all sorts of plans for getting me at the airport and preparing dinner and driving me home after), but - I'm home now! With my stuff! It's all good.

Mieru Hito ends this week, and I have scans of the Jump, so I'm all set. Apparently the mangaka really get no serious advance warning at all, because it just kind of... ends. With all the plot still ongoing. ;_; Oh, well. That's also an experience, I guess - and I have high hopes for the mangaka!

Odacchi~!! Genius. ♥ So much love for Odacchi and One Piece and Luffy and Usopp! That whole exchange is just... um. AWW. It's been TWO YEARS since they've had a conversation. Can you believe it? Over two years! And now they're together - kind of - and Luffy's winning because Usopp is leaving him no choice and then... we'll see, but I kind of really DESPERATELY WANT THAT HUG. Um. Yes.

Vilken pärs direkt på mållinjen (på Arlanda, menar jag)... Men kanske bättre än att bli strandad i Frankfurt? Och skönt att det ordnade upp sig!

Jag vet, One Piece-kapitlet! Luffy och Usopp! Hela grejen, med hur Usopp får Luffy att ställa sig upp igen, för annars kommer han att slåss mot Rucchi, och de vet allihop att det inte funkar, så Luffy är tvungen! Och allt de säger till varandra och jag blir en liten fangirl-hög av att läsa det! ^____^ Odacchi VINNER!

Men stackars Mieru Hito. Hoppas att Iwashiro kommer tillbaka med något annat. Han gör bra söthet!

Var kan man ladda ner hela Jump?

Det var väldigt "...", måste jag säga. Och lite måste jag få reta min mamma och älskling för det här! Men jag fixade det ju. :D

SQUEEEEEEE är allt jag har att säga. ^___^ Just för att Usopp skulle slåss mot Rucchi och han var där för ROBIN, inte för Luffy, och Luffy kan inte låta Usopp gå och bli massakrerad och han borde inte kunna RÖRA SIG, men för Usopp så kan han, och. Och AWWWWWWW. Väldigt mycket aww!

Jag hoppas verkligen på Iwashiro! Jag är så imponerad av Mieru Hito, och av det faktum att han - så vitt jag vet - inte missade en enda vecka på hela tiden han gjorde serien och allt. Så. Jag tror Jump vill ha tillbaks honom, om han har fler bra idéer till serier. Jag hoppas han har det, för jag tror hans nästa försök kan bli ÄNNU bättre än Mieru Hito. Folk som inte är Oda-genier lär sig ju som bekant av sina misstag... och ingen av de andra nya Jump-serierna är särskilt mycket att hänga i julgran, så vi BEHÖVER mer av nån som Iwashiro. Hälst då Iwashiro själv. ^_^

Samma ställe som allt annat: Tokyo Toshokan. Sök bara på "jump".

Lycka till med förberedelserna! *kramar*

Ah, Mieru Hito got kicked out? Nooo... I still have to read a lot of it, but I liked it... *sighs*

Lol, darn, I wanna know what's going on with One Piece! I seriously must start reading scanlations or something, it's very exhausting to only get one volume every other month ^^;(Next volume is out Monday! Oh yea! *waiting*) And we're so far behind! Well, a lot less than we used to be, and thats good... And I haven't been spoiled yet! And I refuse to be! :D Well, I'm off to eat and sleep, and then I'll look for OP scanlations. ^^

Oh, but isn't it just great to put your latest manga purchases in the bookcase? Even though they might have been up before in your case... but this is a different bookcase! XD Sorry, I'm tired. ^^; *hops off*
