Shojo beating

February 6, 2006

Last week brought with it a whole bunch of Del Rey titles I like. This week, it’s Viz’s turn to strike ruthlessly at my comics budget.

Arriving Wednesday are the second volume of Nana, the first of Absolute Boyfriend, the Kamikaze Girls manga, and the sixth volume of Hikaru No Go. What would I do if manga publishers suddenly decided to pace themselves?

Looking at it now, this week’s Flipped column is all over the map. Gratuitous violence, indentured servitude, and shameless plugging of a pet title, all rolled into one barely coherent package.
