Today, after church, some friends and I went to go buy my brother some shoes. And we we had quite a bit of time, so afterwards we checked out this Anime and Manga store that I've been eyeing for while.
Manga and manhwa wise, it did not disappoint :'D I was veeeery happy. And they had ALL EIGHT VOLUMES OF Very! Very! Sweet, but only one of them was half off (since it was used) I was SOO tempted to just buy all of them at the same time, but I had to... with all my power, restrain myself -sigh-
I read the first volume and I'm Very! Very! Pleased with it ^__^b I'm extremely eager to buy the other seven volumes.
Here's the summary they give on the back cover:
A spoiled brat from a wealthy Japanese family, Tsuyoshi is unceremoniously shipped off to Korea by his strict grandfather who tells him the family secret — they’re Korean! Sparks fly when the resentful high schooler arrives at the airport and shares an impromptu cab ride with Kang Be-Ri, a plucky girl who happens to be his new neighbor. Will the two ever get past their differences? And will Tsuyoshi learn to accept his new destiny?
Hmm... I think there's a typo in the summary because both characters are middle school students. MINOR DETAILS.
I quite like the characters though. Shin Ji-sang and Geo's works are something I always look forward to reading.
I'd go into more detail, but nobody reads this :P
Ah, and my Legend manhwa is being shipped as we type.

Not too long ago (in fact, like 10 minutes ago) I purchased volumes 4 through 10 of Legend by Kara and Woo SooJung for a whopping total of $61.93! That's really not too bad for 7 volumes of manhwa that originally was worth $11.99 a pop. ;D If you broke out the calculator, that would have been at least $83.93, not to mention shipping and handling, plus outrageous California taxes. I'd round it up to $100 at original price.
I get all my deals at Barnes&Nobles, for me, it's just a trustworthy thing.
Here are all the prices I got my manhwa for this time around ^___^
These volumes were from other retailers. I made sure the ending price with S&H was still cheaper than Barnes&Noble before buying them.
Volume 4 - $3.66 + $3.99 (S&H) + No tax
Volume 5 - $3.99 + $3.99 (S&H) + No tax
Volume 6 - $3.99 + $3.99 (S&H) + No tax
I bought these straight from B&N for great discounted prices~ As well as free S&H for purchases over $25 (if you're not a member.) I get free EXPRESS S&H regardless because I'm a member :'D
Volume 7 - $8.64
Volume 8 - $9.75
Volume 9 - $8.94
Volume 10 - $7.91
So go buy some good manhwa!
This will bring my total up to what? 114 Manga and 27 Manhwa ;]
