The manga has landed!

The Shonen Sirius manga magazine comes out every month on the 26th. It's not the 26th yet here, but it is in Japan, and that means! The Miraculous manga has made its debut! WOOHOOOOOOO!!! We were pretty eager to check it out, so we bought an issue of the magazine on Book Walker (buy your manga legal, folks!) and we read it!

...It was kind of an ordeal, actually, because we finished work for the day, and while I was doing the rounds of email and Facebook, Athena decided to see if the newest Sirius was available yet. It was! So instead of having a snack like we usually do right after work, even though we were kind of starving, we decided to read Miraculous! (We have our priorities.) And when we were halfway through the chapter! ...Hagger called, ready to play Splatoon!

So Miraculous had to wait. Fortunately, it was the manga adaptation of the Stormy Weather episode, so it's not like we were dying to know what happened next (we'd seen it ten times already). And we had a lovely time playing Splatoon with Hagger, during which time we were miraculously (see what I did there?) put on the same team five times in a row! Hagger's mom said she needed the TV in a few minutes, and he was good enough to relay that information to us (we also overheard it when she told him), so we played a few more (three-minute) battles, and in an effort to not enable irresponsibility, I said, "Didn't your mom need the TV?" And he was all, "No...?" Mere moments later, we hear her voice ask, "Are you done with the TV yet?" and he goes, "...Oh." So we played one more battle and then! we went back to the Miraculous manga! Even though we were still starving.

And that's all I can remember for now. We're up late because we had a watch party with Cecille. And what did we watch? You guessed it! Miraculous World: New York, United Heroez! It was a good time.

Today I'm thankful for getting to read the Miraculous manga, getting to play Splatoon with Hagger, technology that lets us buy manga magazines and read them on their Japanese release date, technology that lets us play videos games with our family even when they're miles away, and technology that lets us watch movies with our friends who are also miles away.
