It’s Monday, so it must be time for me to pimp this week’s Flipped! Coming under scrutiny are two new series that focus on protagonists who might want to get their affairs in order: Black Sun, Silver Moon (Go! Comi) and Shakugan no Shana (Viz).

And here are a couple of links to folks who expand on last week’s column, either directly or indirectly:

  • Kristy Valenti offers some money-saving strategies for the manga shopper, and
  • John Jakala checks out another on-line vendor.

      I’m relieved to learn that someone else found Shakugan no Shana more difficult to follow than Finnegan’s Wake. Sounds like co-parenting zombie-fighting priests are a better bet for those of us who favor a good old-fashioned narrative.

      I’m relieved that you’re relieved, because I was seriously worried that it was just me.

      “Rumors of an opera and interpretive dance piece are as yet unconfirmed”.

      Mr W, have I mentioned lately how much sheer *enjoyment* I derive from your writing style? Regardless (almost) of subject.

      If not, I hope this repairs the omission. The new “Flipped” is always one of the highlights of my week. Many thanks!

      PS: Gratters on the new position.

      Thanks, Jenny!

      Oh, and Chun, Julie at MangaCast shares our bafflement. But she could just be a Denizen trying to keep us off track as she searches among the Mistes for her Treasure Tool. Or something.

      Now I don’t feel quite so ridiculous… thank you.
