Storytime: Nosebleeds and Me

Once upon a time, there lived a boy called Peter. Peter loved watching anime and reading manga. In fact, he would often visit his local entertainment stores every Saturday and buy all he could.

Peter lived in the town of Crewe. Peter liked it in Crewe because the Virgin Megastores had an "anime" section, and the Ottakar's book store had a "manga" section. Peter enjoyed visiting these sections, that he may visit them two or three times a day! Peter didn't have much of a social life.

One day, Peter met a friend in town. It was Conor, a friend from school.

"Hello Conor" said Peter. "Hello Peter" said Conor.

What fun!

Conor has liked anime and manga for much longer than Peter. Conor watched "Outlaw Star" and "Tenchi Muyo" on the Toonami TV channel. See the Sky bill.

Conor and Peter started visiting the shops together. First, they went to Virgin Megastores. They went to the anime section immediately to look at the DVDs. Cromartie High School, Akira, Love Hina, they were all there. There was even a boxset of Azumanga Daioh. Peter likes Azumanga Daioh. See the AMVs.

When they were done, they went to Ottakar's to look at the manga. Peter has been buying a lot of manga recently, so he was hoping there were some new releases. Low and behold, there were! However, this is where the story takes a turn for the worse.

While Peter was looking through the manga, Conor had picked up a volume of "Battle Vixens". Conor showed the cover to Peter. This was Peter's first exposure to abnormally large breasts. If Peter's life was an anime or manga, he could possibly experience a bleeding nose or "nosebleed".

He did. See the tissues.

Peter had a large nosebleed in the middle of the Ottakar's store after looking at a volume of "Battle Vixens".

The moral of the story is, when reading "Battle Vixens", always keep tissues handy. Also, when you read it, think of Peter and his nosebleed in the middle of the book store, and his fear of ever reading Battle Vixens ever again.

Poor Peter.
