June reviews

 

I got a good bit reviewed in June, especially when you consider that From the Heart was technically three books.

 

The most enjoyable of the bunch were The Cybernetic Tea Shop, Horimiya Vol. 3, and His Favorite Vol. 8.

 

My favorite cover:

 

Horimiya, Vol. 2 - Hero 

 

This was a rough month for decent covers, but I could still find something to like. My favorite thing about this one is the way Hagiwara colored it.

 

And a couple honorable mentions:

 

A Centaur's Life Vol. 1 - Kei Murayama 

 

The perspective is a bit odd, but I love Hime's hair.

 

The Twelve Kingdoms: The Shore in Twilight, the Sky at Daybreak - Fuyumi Ono,Eugene Woodbury 

 

Not an official cover, I don't think (it was just the image Woodbury used for his fan translation), and a bit busier than I usually prefer. However, I really like the pose of the woman in front. (Maybe Youko? The hair color fits, but Risai was more likely to have been in that pose in the book.)
