Title: 1-nen 5-kumi Ikimono Gakari Author: FUKUSHIMA Haruka ISBN#978-4-06-364271-1 Kodansha Comics, 2010 Once again displaying my complete and utter lack of logic when buying manga, I picked up this volume simply because it was the one book on that particular shelf at the bookstore that I didn’t already have, and hey, it says something about […]
