    What manga are you reading now?

    @RadFemHedonist: The very same! She even makes a small but regular appearance in this manga as 'Yayoi Ogata' - her sense of humour is just as acute as in Tramps Like Us - so if you liked that, you'll like this too. She also is a huge fan of competitive skating which really shows in the art!

    What manga are you reading now?

    What Did You Eat Yesterday? #16 by Fumi Yoshinaga (Vertical) - my print copy arrived at long last (pre-ordered ages ago, but delayed...) but was, as always, well worth the wait! Yoshinaga-sensei is so clever at slowly advancing the story alongside the delicious recipes the characters make...

    What manga are you reading now?

    Nostalgia time! I discovered this week that Mad Love Chase by Kazusa Takashima, an old favourite series of mine, is available in digital version at a good price. (I have the original print Volumes 2-5 from TOKYOPOP c. 2010 but started the series in French...) It's still a really fun read...

    The News Thread (for news that does not need a thread)

    @Azar @Gemsy-chan: Sad, really, to think that it's coming to an end after all this time. On the other hand, it's probably better to give it a proper conclusion. 28 (?) volumes is a good run and I imagine that Touya Mikanagi is probably ready to start a new series. (Her cover art is so beautiful!)

    Fruits Basket Season 2 Part 2 Review

    Me too; but it seems (and I asked Funimation) that the official release date is today for the BD and DVD standard sets and the Limited Edition won't be available until November.

    I Think Our Son Is Gay Volume 1 Review

    Sad it's ending so soon. Really nice series. @Azar: I absolutely agree - but I also respect mangaka Okura for knowing the right time to bring the story to a close; his first series That Blue Sky Feeling was 3 volumes, so having a fourth is a bonus!

    Has collecting manga always been like this?

    @setokaiba: As you rightly say, the industry has been aware of the problems for many months now - and you might have seen this useful overview from May by Deb Aoki. It's not just the US publishers; it's a problem in Europe as well, with French manga publishers/printers suffering from paper...

    What manga are you reading now?

    @Demelza: Having just finished We're On Our Own From Here, I think it's definitely worth reading. The mangaka has, it seems, only published two single volume titles so far but I think she's promising. Most of all, I hope Kodansha will continue to bring out new BL titles in a more consistent way...

    What manga are you reading now?

    @Demelza: I haven't quite finished We're on Our Own From Here yet but I can certainly recommend it from what I've read so far; it's taking a very familiar situation in high school BL and dealing with it in a slightly different way, which is refreshing! And I'm glad you enjoyed Turns Out My...
