Sono di ritorno dal Lucca Comics.
Immaginate di stare in un posto dove puoi trovare tutto quel che ti piace e di essere in mezzo a gente a cui piace la stessa roba. Come può non piacere un posto del genere?

(ah, la maglietta l'ho instacomprata, era anche della mia misura :D)

New books over here!
Two days ago I ordered the new FF XIV game and, just for fun, I added Megatokyo #2 [ita] and Watchmen to the order.
While waiting for the package, I bought some new manga (after a looong time). Now I don’t have space for them (」゜ロ゜)」

Then… the package arrived. I ordered a cheap version of the Watchmen. I thought it was the Italian version. I opened the volume and… ENGLISH VERSION! ヽ(^。^)丿

If I die young, bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song

These words reminded me of a beautiful book my mother gave me a long time ago. Maybe it’s time to find it and read it again.

Sometimes, you just can’t catch the bus. Who cares, let’s go in a bookstore! … and you find these.
the first is a book from a writer a friend of mine is fagging on (“beatiful!” “besto Japanese writer!”), so… let’s try!
the last… I loved the saga, and I didn’t read the last book. It was discounted, why not?
