Chaika: The Coffin Princess volume 3

Not surprisingly, this volume of My Little Monster is kicking our butts. We figured it would be extra talkative, but we were hoping. Hopefully the edit won't take too long.

Anyway, we really need to get our act back together as far as keeping track of what series to review on Wednesdays, but for now it's between Chaika and Noragami, and the decision is not an easy one. I mean, you'd think the obvious choice would be Noragami, but that might not be fair to Chaika! It's also true that if Noragami is coming out monthly, we can't delay the reviews too long, or we'll fall behind. But maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea to let a Noragami hit bookstore shelves, then review it two weeks later, and then two weeks later there will be a new Noragami... But on the other hand, the Noragami Aragoto anime did just finish, and it might be nice to have the reviews up while everything is still contemporary. Hmmmmmmmmm...

We decided the scientific way: we flipped a coin. And Chaika won, so you all have a week to get caught up on Noragami before we post the review! In the meantime, please enjoy this review of Chaika volume...*checks calendar* three! Spoiler level: extremely mild (the only spoilers are which new characters show up).

Today I'm thankful for getting to have a lovely chat with our little sister, getting to work on My Little Monster, reminders of how cute Chaika can be, Page growing to love the cat tunnel we bought her last April, and having chocolate to boost our morale when work got to be a little too daunting.
