    You so need some Hello Kitty books to review, it seems.

    At least there’s no yaoi stuff. I think.

    Well, I do plan on blogging about manga on Amazon. Tokyopop is good about sending copies.

    That Card volume could kill a steel cockroach!

    I wonder if the Card volume will survive a ballistics test… (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3Wmj46S5qo)

    Oh, and I recommend the Viz titles, but if they’re not sending you review copies…

    It’s only a shade over 650 pages. Looks like it should be well over 1000, though. I wonder how it’d do as a bedpost prop.

    You MUST check out Azuma’s “Yotsuba & !” which can be superficially invoked/summed up as follows; Miyazaki meets Calvin & Hobbes.

    神無月の巫女 (Kannazuki no Miko)? Really? All that terrific angst and anguish for a single panel you know is coming half a book away? No accounting for taste. (I loved it, but I think my taste is questionable.)
