Rakuen Le Paradis, Volume 10 (楽園 Le Paradis)

November 8th, 2012

While not unexpected, Rakuen Le Paradis, Volume 10 (楽園 Le Paradis) was full of some fabulous stuff. What is always unexpected is the stuff  to which my reaction is “eewwwww.”

For a magazine that has several of my absolute favorite series, by several of my favorite artists, it amazes me how many series it also has which instill in me a violent loathing. Kinda cool, huh? This is a magazine that is utterly unafraid of extremes. For every “Collectors” there’s something utterly vile by Rendou Kurosaki. (And this issue was particularly horrid.) For every miserable, creepy chapter of “Nisemono Honeytrap” there’s a refreshingly realistic chapter of “Kakera no Omoi.”

Reading a volume of Rakuen Le Paradise is a bit bipolar – “Yay!” “Boo!” “Yay!” “Boo!” At least I’m never bored!

Overall – 8

But seriously, this issue’s Kurosaki story was just nasty.

    For someone that claims to be so liberal, I find your inappropriate “bipolar” reference to be extremely offensive.

  2. @Anonymous – I can’t imagine what connection you make between using “bipolar” and me being socially liberal.

    If you’re all bent out of shape that I’m using your word in an inappropriate way, let me assure you it is my word as well. There many things about me you do not know and many words I feel perfectly fine using the way I wish to. You always have the right to not read my blog if my use of words is not to your liking.
