If The Truth is the one with the newspaper, then it's one of the few DW books I've read, and my favorite of those I have. "--ing!"

And xxxHolic, see, yes, this is why I've been waiting for these eps! Only I think the series is over now...that certainly felt like An Ending, and the preview was for a special ep, so...

Ouran is just too awesome to discuss without squeeing and/or whimpering to burst your eardrums. Suffice to say I can't wait for the end.

And re: FY - yes, that's why I like reading shoujo! about half of it is that easy, just simple love confessions in classic polite girl-speech.
...then there's the other half, which is high school slang and pages that are all text and weird char analysis and puns and jokes and references and is pretty much impenetrable. Which is why I got scanlations of Ouran even though we own it all >_>

Yes, I suck, I know. God. I'm a horrible student. I don't remember anything of what I did before leaving for Japan, and facing 888 pages of required reading just made me blink a bit and then read Pratchett instead. I find the theories and methods discussed either painfully obvious (how can you call what's just common sense a scientific theory?) or sheer pretentious academic drivel. And I have to hand in a sketch of an idea for a thesis on Friday, and I haven't even decided on a subject yet.

All of this to say - I should be better at replying and stuff, but I'm too busy sucking.

And! Yes! That's the one. It's quite fantastic. ♥ With the "--ing", and the press, and everything. Am now reading all of the books about the City Watch, because I know plenty of people who things Captain Vimes is one of the best characters in anything ever, and I'm quite fond of him myself. Won't be able to read much more Pratchett after a while, but for now it's perfect.

I'm quite ticked at Holic for ending soon, and not showing those events you were mentioning, but on the other hand the manga's coming out in Swedish now (!), and the price is only a couple of hundred yen more than if you buy it new in Japanese, so... yay! Manga for me! One book a month, starting now. ^_^

Same with Ouran, actually - yeah, it's cool, but unless the ending pulls something spectacular it's going to feel crazily rushed. Or just end with a status quo, which is fine, but not very interesting. AND that French chick who just showed up has THE most Mary-Sue name EVER. ("Lightning Thunder". I mean. Um. Even Mary-Sue authors usually do better than that!)

Anyway. My general state of mind is kind of set on "I HATE EVERYTHING" now, so don't listen to me. Shoujo is still fun to read!

And since I'm finding so many other creative ways of avoiding my studies, I'm sure I'll get started on Eyeshield soon.
