Ono, Ono, Ono

Hey, are you sick of me obsessing over Natsume Ono? If so, this week’s Flipped is probably not for you. And I make no promises about the situation improving in the future. And yes, I am illustrating my blog like a teenager pasting magazine covers to the inside of my locker. I make no apologies.

    Um, I own all of those books.

    I am so ready for more Natsume Ono.

    Hey btw drop me a line with the address where you prefer to receive review copies? I have something for you.

    Do you have any of her yaoi? One has the word “Bear” in the title, which almost made me faint.

    Lol. There’s always more room for more Natsume Ono! ❤ What's funny is I'm reading Coppers and Danza now. XD

    David, do you want me to scan my Orso e Intellectuale for you (it's the one with the bear)? That would at least help whet some curiosities you have over this bear phenomenon. lol.

    There is never enough Ono.

    Khursten, that’s so nice of you to offer, but don’t worry about it. I always like to have a “white whale” out there to obsess over, and Orso e Intellectuale fits nicely into that slot!

  7. Khursten says:

    Lolol. That’s nice way of putting it. The white whale. Love it. It would be interesting to put out a list of white whales, but somehow that’s a little like your license request day. ❤

    I'm sure that there are other white whales out there and we just haven't had a glimpse of it yet. My "white whale" now are Yoshinaga Fumi's Slam Dunk MitKo doujinshis. They're out there… I'm… gonna wait for mandarake to start selling 'em. ;w;

    now that I’ve posted my review I’m so happy to read yours (I’ve now found a new manga-ka to obsess over! Oh happy day!).

    In not simple, Ono is playing with the idea of tragedy as an entertainment beyond merely presenting a tragic series of events.

    This is a very interesting observation…I admit I wrote my review just because I’m so haunted by this story that I thought I’d go nuts if I didn’t get something out there. But I still want to think about what Ono has accomplished with this comic, and I find your thoughts here particularly useful to think about how she represents the tragic “events” in that they often aren’t “events” at all.

    Very enjoyable column, thanks for sharing!
