ICV2 talks about how fans of Sailor Moon would reallyreallyreally love a renaissance of the series. I include myself among the hordes of the hopeful. 20th anniversary? 25th anniversary? We never did get the Outers in a live-action version, hint hint.
Shimura Takako’s story of a transgender girl and transgender boy who meet and become friends, Houro Musuko is listed on Amazon as Wandering Son: Volume One – it’s slated for a December release from Fantagraphics. (And as YNN Correspondent NguyenSon points out in the comments, this series is also scheduled to be turned into an anime.)
If you’re paying any attention to the mangasphere, you’ll know that this week, Fantagraphics announced a line of Moto Hagio classic shoujo manga works, “translated and curated” by Matt Thorn. This is pretty much excellent news for manga fans. Deb Aoki has an interview with Gary Groth of Fantagraphics, who was unaware how risky publishing a classic shoujo manga is. It will be interesting to know if his opinion changes after he’s put the books out. :-)
Chris Mautner gives a nod to Rica ‘tte Kanji!? in his Six Gay Comics that are better than anything on Ranker’s list. Thank you, Chris!
