Your Lie in April volume 7

We're sort of back on track, because we finished Missions of Love 13 today! We also discovered that UQ Holder! has been moved to a monthly magazine, and won't start there for another couple of months, so we're off the hook for that one until after Anime Expo and our next trip to Fresno. It's kind of bittersweet, though, because I like UQ Holder!, and they were just about to get into some serious plot stuff. On the bright side, UQ Holder anime! We're really excited to find out who gets cast in it! All we know is that Ken Akamatsu wants to get all the original Negima cast to play the Negima characters.

But anyway, it's Review Rednesday! I'm starting to wonder if I should announce the things we translated that hit bookstores every week, too, so people can be ready when I post the review! Of course, that won't work on weeks when I post a review of something that came out the same week. Anyway, according to Anime News Network, the only things we translated that came out yesterday are Noragami 15 and Complex Age 1. The former is monthly and the latter is a first volume, so it seems like I should prioritize them both, but I was already planning to post about Your Lie in April today, so I'm sticking with that. We'll decide whether or not Noragami or Complex Age should cut in line next week (but in the case of Complex Age, that would mean we should have posted about Corpse Party several weeks ago).

Anyway, here's the review! Spoiler level: moderate.

Today I'm thankful for getting back on track, getting to try the chocolate corn star things that came in our Tokyo Treat box, the amusement afforded us by our current to-do list (Athena was looking at it and saying, "I'm kind of afraid of that list, because those last four things are all due at pretty much the same time," and I pointed out that it's okay because they're not due until mid-July, which gives us almost a month, and then we both considered that yeah that's good until you consider that ideally when you have four books, you'd want a whole month, and there's actually five things on the list, plus a convention, and we were amused and scared and then amused at the scariness), getting to work on Missions of Love again, and making small progress on costumes.
