The (Shojo) Beat goes on

February 13, 2006

There’s a lively discussion going on over at Love Manga on shôjo, anthologies, anime, and just how awesome Ai Yazawa is. Brigid from MangaBlog arrives to share the always welcome perspective of her shôjo-loving daughters, who enjoy both Shojo Beat the magazine and the subsequent collected versions of the serialized stories.

Speaking of Ai Yazawa and Shojo Beat, this week’s Flipped takes a look at Nana and Kamikaze Girls.

And speaking of great manga in general, several bloggers have noted that Viz is having a sale on some of its out-of-print titles, many of which are really, really terrific. There goes my tax refund.
