Again, SEVERE SPOILER WARNINGS for the manga ending. Even if you only follow the manga casually, I strongly advise you not to read behind the cut if you haven't read the ending yet. And if you've never intended to read this brilliant series, the entry will make very little sense.

You cannot gain anything without first giving something in return )

Can't believe this. I just got teary-eyed looking at the damn cover of the last volume of Last Gasp's edition of Barefoot Gen into English.

I already own that volume in French. But I'll probably feel compelled to buy it anyway, even though it's among the weakest books in the series. Just based on that cover alone. *sigh* Such a sucker.

ETA: that cover will say nothing if you haven't read any of the books, and even if you have done so and understand it, I wouldn't expect anyone to do more than nod in recognition. No clue why I got so emotional./edit

It was my birthday yesterday - the 3rd, that is - and [livejournal.com profile] dethorats wrote me a lovely shortfic set back in East Blue, featuring Usopp and Luffy and Zoro. :D :D \o/Check it out if you're in the mood for nice, mellow fluff. What a great surprise.
