Feedly Friday: May 8, 2015

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

And so comes a slow rebirth of the link round-up! I particularly missed posting these, as there’s so much great content in the manga-sphere. Expect Feedly Fridays round-ups to appear every other week. In the meantime, let’s dive back in!

Over at the home-base Organization Anti-Social Geniuses, there’s a giveaway to be had: Enter to win one of three hardcover copies of the forthcoming Yen Press re-release of Emma! I can’t quite describe how much I love this series, and how much I love that it’s getting the deluxe re-release that it so deserves, but this enthused comment certainly shows that I’m not alone!

Also at OSAG, Justin reviews the first volume of Tokyo Ghoul while I tackle the first volume of Meteor Prince. I even got quoted on the Shojo Beat tumblr page!

Looking for another giveaway? Kodansha is giving away the first volume of A Silence Voice on Goodreads. If you’re on the fence about the series — and you shouldn’t be — the series is also available digitally on Crunchyroll.

Over at ANN, this week’s House of 1000 manga takes a different angle and reviews three books about the actual life of a manga artist.

Frog-kun of Fantastic Memes takes a look at “Anime Fandom and Self-Deprecating Humor.” He has some great commentary, especially on self-deprecating humor actually maintaining the status quo.

Over in shoujo land, Shojo Beat posts their pretty releases for the month, and Heart of Manga rounds us out with a month full of releases.

My favorite monthly post appears again (and my eyes go green with collector’s envy) with Ash’s Bookshelf Overload.

For something different, Sedar explores a Korean animated film centered on bullying entitled King of Pigs.

In a small roundup reviews, Manga Test Drive is keeping us busy all through May with review highlights like High School Debut and Ristorante Paradiso. Anna at Manga Report looks at volumes 1-3 of Magi as well as one of my personal favorites, Master Keaton.

More Manga: September/October 2014

Flowers of Evil 11Somewhere in the midst of everything (read: job + laziness), I got particularly behind on listing my monthly manga escapades. The lack of “More Manga” posts is definitely not a reflection of how often I buy manga; in fact, this month will include the double whammy of manga for September and October — just hit the jump!

Feedly Friday: August 15, 2014

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

This week we have a pretty even split between interesting publisher Tumblr posts and manga reviews, so let’s dive into the other stuff first.

Over at OASG, Justin triggers a load of childhood manga collecting memories by looking at “The Curious Case of Last Pages For US Manga Editions.” Kuuki looks at recent anime series Samurai Flamenco, while Justin goes the manga route and reviews Seraph of The End vol 1.

I’ve quickly become a big fan of Japanese Tease’s content, and this week they look at how “Dancehall is big in Japan.”

Over at Manga Brog we have another great interview, this time with Vagabond’s Takehiko Inoue.

Now for our publisher Tumblr round-up: Seven Seas has queries ranging from color pages, to licensing yaoi manga — including a clarification on their preference for yuri, and when we can expect more — to who exactly runs the Tumblr account. (Conner is awesome, by the way.)

Shojo Beat does what I love best, posting pretty pictures of new things in from the printer and some sneak peeks.

Reviews this week: Ash has Vinland Saga volume 4, while Sean has one of my most anticipated releases, Black Rose Alice volume 1. Sarah tackles Magi volume 2 and likes it better than volume 1. Astronerdboy looks at A Silent Voice, currently available on Crunchyroll. Over at Manga Xanadu, Lori reviews the first two volumes of Puella¬†Magi Oriko Magica. Helen reviews the shoujo classic Mars, while Manga Test Drive includes a bonus podcast with Megan’s review of Heart of Thomas. Over at Sequential Ink, Ken reviews volume 7 of a series I just started reading, Sankarea. I’m dying to for my order of In Clothes Called Fat to ship but Comics Worth Reading reviews the series in the meantime. To round us out this week, Sean reviews the first volume of Kokoro Connect.

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

More Manga: April 2014

NHKI mentioned last month that April would be big month for manga, and a big month it was. I tried valiantly to keep my manga purchases to only Amazon preorders, but I ran across a complete run of the Welcome to NHK manga at my local Half Price Books that shook up my goal. May should be far easier! Hit the jump for the full list!
