Another round of Tome Topple has come and gone. How did I do? Well, life came and kicked me in the teeth the past couple of weeks. A close family friend passed away, I helped one of my siblings move four states away, etc. In the end, I wound up not reading anything for Tome Topple.

Series: Karate Heat
I like shonen. I also like sports manga. Although, to be honest, I like just about all manga. This week I started a new series titled Karate Heat by Eiichi Kitano, a title I was previously unfamiliar with. This is a shonen manga about karate, hard work, and friendship.

As with any series, the farther into it we go the harder it is to review without spoilers so read at your own risk. I’m trying to avoid them I really am but it’s hard to do that when you want to talk about how great the book is.

Series: Go For It, Nakamura
Go For It, Nakamura! was a very adorable manga. It’s a cute slice-of-life boy’s love comedy story. The main character is Nakamura, a high schooler who fell instantly in love with the cute, outgoing boy in his class on the first day of school. Unfortunately, Nakamura doesn’t know Hirose, not really. His goal? Overcome his shyness and klutzy habits, introduce himself, and become Hirose’s friend. After that, well, maybe then he can confess his true feelings.
