Feedly Friday: July 11, 2014

Feedly Friday is a weekly round-up of manga-related links from my Feedly/RSS reader and from around the web.

Over at OASG this week, I finally round up my “Thoughts About Buying Manga with Rightstuf.” Overall, I had good experience and think I’ll be adding Rightstuf to one of the main ways I shop for manga now. The rest of the OASG team also has impressions for the summer 2014 anime season, including my thoughts on Blue Spring Ride and Tokyo Ghoul.

This week’s ANN House of 1000 Manga takes a long soak with bathing manga Thermae Romae.

This year’s Anime Expo has come and gone — one year soon I’ll be there — and Sean at Manga Bookshelf has the AX License round-up while Yumeka has her own AX write-up. Besides Jojo and Kurosagi that I mentioned last week, I’m thrilled to see A Silent Voice get a print release from Kodansha. There was a ton of great licensing news for AX this year! In other fun con coverage, fellow OAG contributor Kuuki has her round-up of Paris’ Japan Expo.

Viz now has the first set of the original Sailor Moon anime up for pre-order with Rightstuf, included a cool limited edition coin.

Over at The Beautiful World be sure to check out the informative “Transgender Manga Masterpost.”

Helen McCarthy has a review of book that keeps popping up in my Amazon recommendations, The Moe Manifesto. I admit I was initially scared off by the moe title, but with a an endorsement from Helen McCarthy it’s now on my to-buy list.

Super, super, super excited to hear that the Gangsta manga is getting a anime adaption. I really love this series, and it’s also one of the few (if not the only one) for me where the men are actual eye-candy.

On to our weekly review round-up: Yet another review of My Love Story! has me dying to get my hands on this first volume, while Comics Worth Reading has reviews of long time favorite Ooku volumes 8 and 9 as well as Say I Love You volume 2. On the heels of the recent Netflix release, Ken H has a review of Knights of Sidonia volumes 5-6. Over at Manga Xanadu Lori looks at Attack on Titan spinoff No Regrets. Manga Test Drive has a review of CMX classic and library favorite The Key to the Kingdom. Finally, Sean has a review of a manga I’m intensely curious about, Arpeggio of Blue Steel.

Did I miss anything? Feel free to shoot me links in the comments! Until next week!
