Here’s some items that didn’t make it into yesterday’s news report, but might be of interest to you:
There is one lesbian magazine in Tokyo right now – Tokyo Wrestling
. They have a Facebook group
and a Twitter
account and they are bi-lingual in Japanese and English, so please feel free to talk to them! They’ve also just published a book on Bois in Japan, Tokyo Bois!
, something that might interest a lot of our genderqueer readers, among others. It’s in my Cart, for sure. Tokyo Wrestling’s website is in Japanese and English, as I mentioned and they are currently looking for new translators to render some of the Japanese articles into English (and maybe other languages, if you ask.) If you’re looking for some translation experience to put on the resume that isn’t for illicit distribution groups, this is a fantastic alternative and the editor-in-chief, Yuki, would be very appreciative of your assistance.
My column on Manga Bookshelf
now has an official name – Magazine no Mori
. To celebrate actually coming up with a name that makes sense, I’ve posted a brand new magazine review, this time popular, but second ranker to Jump, Shounen Sunday
. Gone are the tortured “eye” metaphors, now we’ll have tortured “forest” metaphors instead!
A week from now, my article on Hooded Utilitarian
will post. It’s a refurbished article from 11 years ago. Still valid, though.
