Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA

So, Asch, YOU WERE HOT AFTER ALL.

This month's issue of Degenki Maou, which serialises the Tales of the Abyss manga, is utter love. Not only do they introduce Natalia this issue, but it also has the Asch-Luke fighting-in-the-rain scene, and an Asch I could seriously love. Now that really is something, because if you know me, you also know that saying I'm not usually an Asch fan is an understatement the size of Markt and Kimlasca combined, but this issue was absolutely brilliant. CURSE YOU Asch, WHY weren't you like this in the game? I would have been an Asch fan if manga canon was like game canon!

Oh, Natalia. If I was a Kimlascan boy, I'd ask you to be my girlfriend.

Also, narugami linked this gorgeous set of Abyss figurines.


Incidentally, this Abyss website is really good - so much endearing comic art! Well, and this one has good comics, too. This had a really sweet Halloween Guy and Luke comic, when Luke was a kid.
