Wednesday What Have-Yous

Just a few links today before I upload the next review in ghost story week. And speaking of reviews, next week I’ll be taking a break from the themes and older series, to put up some reviews for a few new releases! I’m glad people have been enjoying the theme idea, I really appreciate the kind words of those who’ve taken the time to comment and e-mail me about them! A new theme will begin after the week of new release reviews.

First of all, those who make frequent visits to the manga blogosphere have probably come across the debates and mild-outrage towards Tokyopop’s Manga Pilot contract. MangaBlog‘s Brigid shares her take on the casually constructed contract over at, and makes some good points. A good place to start for a thoughtful and calm look at what’s sparking people into verbal action.

Second, for those who enjoyed Jonathan Clement’s work for (and in) NewType USA or some of his books, including The Anime Encyclopedia, you’ll be happy to know he has a new book coming out called ‘Schoolgirl Milky Crisis: Adventures in the Anime and Manga Trade’. Note: Schoolgirl Milky Crisis is a referrence to a non-existant anime series he used, in place of series he actually worked on, while writing about his experiences in his NewType USA column. No synopsis yet on the book itself but I think the title speaks for itself fairly well and it has the potential to be a pretty interesting read.

And elsewhere, there was some talk about the DramaQueen website being down for a number of days. Hopes were high that its return might symbalize some update content or information, but with its return this morning, that unfortunately does not seem the case. Hopefully Taisa will come through for the patient and shed some more light on DQ’s position at the end of the month.
