Neglect, correct

In this week’s Flipped, I call for back-up in the person of noted manga blogger CLAMP maniac Katherine Dacey-Tsuei to discuss the hit-making quartet’s work.

I realize that my tastes can be relatively narrow, and this leads me to neglect big chunks of the licensed manga catalog, so I hope to do more of these in the future. Got a favorite creator, category or genre and want to sing its praises? Drop me a line.

    Hrm…I’d love to plug the collective body of works of Matsumoto Tomo here, but unfortunately there isn’t a gamut-spanning body of diverse titles to talk about.

    And hey, when in doubt, just throw something together about the deeper philosophical meanings of pachinko manga.

    Heh. Do you really want to be responsible for a new wave of pachinko parlors opening up in the United States?

    I certainly wouldn’t mind doing a round-up if people wanted to make pitches for a creator, genre or category that should be more widely available. Seems like Tomo’s got several works that aren’t licensed yet, so this might fight into something like that quite nicely.

    Hi David,

    I enjoyed reading your discussion of CLAMP with Katherine Dacey-Tsuei and thought I might have something to offer up. I’m one of the webmasters of Rumic World (http://www.furinkan.com), the largest Rumiko Takahashi fansite on the internet, and would love to discuss aspects of her career and works with you if that is something you’d be interested in.

    Thanks for your time and the very interesting column.

    Sounds great, Dylan. I’m a big fan of Takahashi’s shorter stories (like Rumic Theatre) and I’m a big Inu Yasha anime junkie, but I haven’t delved too much into her longer series.

    I’ll send you an e-mail. Thanks!
