September edition of the "related articles in the media"

Announcements:

For those of you who like Ishikawa's (Moyashimon) Chaste Maria, volume 2 is coming out on Oct. 7. The regular manga will be 570 yen, and the special collector's picture volume will be 1500 yen.

Personally, I like Akihiro Itoh (Geobreeders). I'v been adding to the Itoh database, putting in pages for Lawman, Take the B Studio Complete, and Wilderness. You can get to them from the About Itoh page.


Here's the batch of articles to show up in the media from September, regarding anime, manga and related stuff. Again, the Japan Times seems to have discarded their manga reporter, and the Daily Yomiuri has only a fraction of the stories they used to carry. All of the slack is being taken up by the Asahi, which is averaging close to a story a day. The Metropolis has become a complete waste of ink, and even in the rare case where they carry something anime-related, it's not worth noticing (bleh).
