Daily Yomiuri

Arakawa Under The Bridge review

Yuki Kajiura anisongs

Blythe Dolls turned into manga characters

COMICS REVIEW / Ramen master Taisho

I guess it's a mixed blessing - bad writing is better than no writing at all...

Happy Science is a so-called "neo-Buddhist" religous group that tried making a political bid in Japan, and includes at least a few manga artists in its ranks. This article describes some of the anime they've developed so far.
