I read too much sometimes. I stare at books for hours on end, and when I finish…I feel like our stick friend here. Don’t interrupt me while I’m reading though or I’ll stare at you until you go away.

Pirate Reviews: 20th Century Boys
So: confessions. I was going to draw something else, but I was reading this manga until just now. And by reading it, I mean all of it. ALL OF IT.
All 249 chapters, at around 16 pages per chapter. That’s nearly 4,000 pages of art. It took me…10+ hours. Worth it.
So, I’m instituting a new feature for the blog which I might make permanent: reviews. Let me begin the review.
20th Century Boys is a manga about the world coming to the end. No, it’s a manga about childhood. Actually, it’s both. And it’s confusing. The manga skips around in time, so that the average reader will have trouble following some plot points. In addition, the names and faces of the characters can appear similar, so that viewers may also become confused.
I found the ending slightly abrupt, and at parts, the manga did drag on quite a bit. I also disagreed with several of the plot twists. In conclusion, I rate this manga among the best series I’ve ever read. If you want a thrilling manga that manages to tie in the experience of being a child with the drama of the end of the world, read this.
Off the Wagon
Yeah, I’ve got to admit it. Face the truth; admit it to everyone.
I’m addicted to reading. It’s a serious problem. I used to read a book every day, for hours on end. Because of life I haven’t been able to read as much, but the itch is back. Reading is amazing.
Hail to the Librarian
This one’s dedicated to the guardians of knowledge, and enforcers of silence! I also wonder how many weird questions librarians have to answer like this one. Anyways, don’t mess with the book keepers!
Disturb and Die
I like books. I like reading. I (generally) like people. But disturb me when I’m reading a good book and there will be blood. This picture is dedicated to all those who still remember what holding paper feels like.
Why read when you can absorb? Thanks to Pirate’s new reading technique, learning has never been easier! In all seriousness though, I really wish this were possible…
Tea and Books
It’s time for a quote of the day! We all know Pirate can’t read, but that doesn’t stop her from enjoying a good picture book. Reading important, and so is tea, apparently. Well, who am I to argue with C.S. Lewis?
