My Favorite Kind of Problem

I have three and a half days left in my vacation and 30+ manga volumes to go. I doubt I can make it all the way through, so now I'm debating how to divide my time. I have piles of Black Butler, Arata: The Legend, Naruto, Nabari no Ou, and The Story of Saiunkoku. I've decided to abandon Shinobi Life after only one volume, because it's just not good enough to spend these last few days on.


The best manga I've read during my vacation so far: Skip Beat. It's so very good. In second place, the Circus Arc in Black Butler.


The worst manga I've read during my vacation so far: the first volume of The Seven Magi. It makes me worry about having several of the Guin Saga books in my TBR pile.
