What he said

I don’t really have much to add to Graeme McMillan’s summary of the TightLip situation, except to note that the CBR thread is incredibly depressing, not only for the number of people who have apparently been on the receiving end of TightLip’s bad business practices but for the thread’s degeneration from well-intentioned attempt to secure compensation for the screwed to mortifying spectacle of infantile name-calling. Can someone just sue someone else already so we can get to the point where attorneys will recommend that their clients refrain from public comment?

Seinen sign-in

This week’s Flipped is up with reviews of Housui Yamazaki’s Mail (Dark Horse) and Kashimashi ~ Girl Meets Girl (Seven Seas).

While looking stuff up for the column, I was interested to see the titles that have been serialized in seinen anthology Dengeki Daioh, mostly because many of them don’t fit with my conventional (and probably too narrow) definition of seinen.

I mean… Yotsuba&! is seinen? Who knew?
