GLB vol. 58
I know this update is coming relatively late in comparison to when I normally upload Gothic & Lolita Bible scans, but better late than never, right??  (;´・ω・`)

Actually what happened was, I made plans more than 6 months ago to meet with a friend visiting Tokyo for two consecutive days.
We've been friends for more than 10 years and this was our very first time to meet in person!! I still managed to pick up a copy, and amazingly enough my point card at the book store had enough points that I was able to buy the GLB this time for 150 yen (about $1.50 USD)!! (°□°)

The point is, even though I had a physical copy in my hands all day I wasn't able to do any scans or translating until I got home much later tonight...
So instead of boring you any further with my stories, heres the new images of Mana from Gothic & Lolita Bible Vol. 58



Caption translations

EGL Page:
The first day we met,
I was fascinated by your blue eyes gazing at me.
If the world you live in is different, then I'll just have to go there.
I would even become a doll to be with you--.


EGA Page:
A long long time ago--
I was turned into a doll by a sorcerer.
Some how you are able to speed things up......
It will only be a little bit longer until the spell that was cast on me will be broken.



The theme of the GLB this time is dolls, so the story is supposed to follow along with the main contents.
Most of the dolls shown this time are Blythe dolls, but several other popular kinds show up too.


If you're interested in the content, please consider supporting the GLB by buying your own copy!

Speaking of dolls, for anyone in Tokyo who likes this kind of thing I noticed the other day that there is a small doll exhibition called "Square and Circle"going on in Roppongi. If memory serves me right, there are some really strange and creepy looking dolls on display, but they're interesting for people who like gothic things.
The exhibition runs until the end of the month, November 30th, and I think it might be free.


Lastly, for those who are curious about what I did with my friends that took so long today...



( ̄ー+ ̄)

It was pretty sudden and unexpected that we visited Odaiba, but they completely fell in love!!
Of course, I also really love it, and the holidays are extra special at Venus Forte. The theme for Christmas this year is space, so all the "orbs" above the fountain are supposed to look like planets and constellations. Even the ceiling lights up with a starry sky now!
Unfortunately we only got to spend about 10 minutes in the mall before it closed, so I would like to go back some time soon, even if its by myself.
Almost every day I suffer from a lot of stress and anxiety related problems, but for some reason the moment I step foot in Odaiba my stress always goes away.

It must be Odaiba magic!!(人´∀`)
