Today’s post is an early bit of linkblogging, a pre-Saturday mini YNN report, if you will.
Yesterday we had some breaking news from Right/Stuf Nozomi. From their press release:
Also, from the world of Maria-sama ga Miteru, here’s a whip with which to flagellate ourselves: Those folks who are seeing the Maria-sama ga Miteru Movie in Japan will receive a pile of commemorative items, including a clearfile and a “Secret Episode” book! I’ve already checked the flight costs and man, if it weren’t highway robbery, I’d so be there to see the movie. Thanks to Komatsu-san for the tip on this.
Appropo to nothing, here is a incendiary post by David Welsh, in which he calls out those folks culpable in the lack of critical respect given to Moto Hagio and other female writers (including the crime committed by A Drunken Dream and Other Stories‘ own publisher of saying “this isn’t like other shoujo manga – it’s not crappy.”) I contributed a confrontational comment and am waiting to be called sexist for it.
