Shugo Chara! Volume 3
Story:
Amu’s Guardian Characters have been stolen by her teacher, a bitter man whose dreams died when his own egg was smashed. When Amu goes to reclaim her Characters, the School Guardians are there to help. But can they get Amu’s eggs back and put the evil teacher’s egg together again? (from Del Rey)

Ramblings:
For some reason, the pages of this volume are just slightly wider than the cover, so they stick out a tiny little bit. It’s not much, and it’s not too noticable, but it’s kind of annoying… other than that though, this volume is really well put together.

Yay! Nikaidou-sensei! : D I love him so much more because of the anime, but since this is supposed to be a review of the manga, we’ll not discuss that not. I didn’t remember that Ikuto was there when Nikaidou was first revealed…but when he catches Amu, he sure is holding her rather protectively. xD

lulz, Nobuko Saeki is probably one of the most amazing side characters in this series. xD She’s just a fun, crazy old lady. Who also can’t drive. xD

I love Lunatic Charm, but I’m not loving how Del Rey randomly put the words half in/half out of the speech bubbles…I realize it’s hard to fit things sometime, but there are two full-size bubbles for 4 words…it couldn’t have been much more work to fit them in… :/

hahahah. I adore Yoru’s face when Utau is clinging to Ikuto. xD He’s just like, “wtf woman, you’re insane.”

Su!! D: I really wish Nikaidou hadn’t put her in a cage like that. D:

hahaha. “Ikuto, kidnapping a kid?”  Ikuto’s friends(?) are rather amusing. It’s not like he was far-off, right?

Nikaidou was a super-cute kid! : D

The first appearance of the Heart Rod! And some super lols caused by Amu’s reaction, “Ack! What’s with this girlie magic wand? There’s no magic coming out of it!”

The first appearance of Amulet Clover too!! : D Though I’m not really fond of the giant puffball of a dress… :/

I don’t know what chapter it is off the top of my head (and they’re not labeled in the book), but I love the chapter title page with the Alice in Wonderland theme!!! It’s fantastic! : D

lol. “Knee pillow!!”

“If you’re strong enough to say stupid things, you’re fine.” I think your logic’s a little flawed there Amu. xD

And I don’t think I need to say anything other than tea-cups.

omg. So, in the 4-koma at the end of this volume, there is one about the characters saying what spring makes them think of…Ikuto and Yoru both said, “Being in heat.” I’m going to have to agree with Amu, “Can he say that in this manga?” Oh Peach-Pit, how I love thee! : D

So…I already did one of these for volume 5, but I’m not sure when I can do volume 4, since someone at home is borrowing it and I have no idea when (or realistically, if) I’ll get it back…

    Hehe~, yes~ Ikuto would never forgive himself if Amu got hurt. X3

    Nobuko is the most amazing side/filler character in this series! Crazy old ladies FTW! lol >8D

    Ah, the part that really bugged me about Lunatic Charm’s dialogue is how they switched these two sentences (sorry, I can’t remember it very well since I haven’t bought the book yet but it’s pretty much the same):

    “I’ll have you disappear, Guardians! I’m sorry!” (Del Ray)

    And what we were suppose to get was the exact reverse: “I’m sorry but I’ll have to get rid of you all right here, Guardians!”

    Del Ray really killed the effect of the line because of the switch. Don’t you think? *mad because of it*

    Oh, you shush about that. He’s only going to kidnap her the day before their wedding. Lol

    Chibi Nikaidou~! x3333

    & I love Amulet Clover’s skirt! X333 I use to hate it because I thought it was so ugly but now I can’t see Amulet Clover without it. It’s so cute! ^^

    It’s probably chapter 13 or 14. And yes, that was such a lovely cover~ 8D

    Amu’s logic is always going haywire when she’s around Ikkun~ Awwz~ <333

    Lawl~ Best 4-koma EVAR. xD

    And if you don’t get it back, threaten tell the person who “borrowed” it to buy you a new on. xD

    Thanks for the nice review! ^^

    That definitely does change the meaning…that’s weird…Del Rey doesn’t tend to do things like that.

    The day before? Try as soon as she’s legal. xD

    Meh, Amulet Clover’s dress is ok, I prefer Su’s dress when she’s not CharaNari’d.

    It totally is the best 4-koma ever!!! : D

    I would threaten, but it’s not that she lost it persay, but rather that she’s left it at home and she lives like 2 states away now, but goes to school in my home town. So it’s really a matter of her remembering to bring them with her to school and then us being able to meet sometime when I’m home… :/

    ““If you’re strong enough to say stupid things, you’re fine.” I think your logic’s a little flawed there Amu. xD”
    It works though. Part of the reason I like Amuto is that Amu doesn’t let Ikuto get away with saying perverted things.

    I agree with everything else. Good review.

    True, true. Though that doesn’t necessarily mean she should have dropped his head on concrete. xD

  5. February 19, 2009 4:00 pm

    Same thing~ lol xD;

    True. If it was more…”open” like Suu’s dress, it would definitely look better. lol Haven’t thought of that in a while. Amulet Clover being conservative. xDD;;

    Ah, I see. Hope she’ll remember then.

    That’s true. I was amused by cute chibi Ikuto though when she dropped his head. (I’m evil aren’t I)

    @Xiao Jie: hahahaha. true! xD

    omg, lol. That’s true…she definitely is the most conservative of all Amu’s Shugo. xD

    @warriorhope:

    Well, that’s true too. :3 It is rather amusing. xD (so, if you’re evil, I am too)
