Manga Monday 5-18-09

Better late than never, some things of interest in Manga that I thought I'd share...

Apparently, Rumiko Takahashi's work has a blog! I love her work, so getting to keep tabs on things will be helpful. Also, for the whopping two people that don't already know but might care, Viz is posting her new manga series online for free.

Speaking of free things online, TokyoPop is also placing one of its series online, Bizenghast. I have to admit, I didn't get a chance to look at it yet, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

The Manga Critic recently had a post about what "real" manga is. Personally, I tend to find the American-written manga less interesting, for whatver reason. I'm not sure "anything printed 6x9 is manga" is a valid argument, but perhaps maybe there's a certain style that qualifies? Anyone care to weigh in?

Also, Manga Critic is nice enough to give us a list of upcoming manga for the week. I think I'm gonna use my next Border's coupon on that Clover Omnibus...
