Aug. - Oct. edition of the "related articles in the media"

Here's the batch of articles to show up in the media from Aug. to Oct., regarding anime, manga and related stuff. I hadn't realized just how long this list had gotten, or old some of the stories are now. I've built up a large enough backlog of other blog entries that I either have to run the newspaper links now and print 2-3 blog entries per day for a week, or keep my regular blog schedule and build up another month of newspaper links. I don't think anyone actually reads the newspaper stories, so maybe it doesn't matter either way. (Side note, the Asahi site, which is the best of the three for actually reporting on anime news, has put a limit of reading 2 articles a day unless you subscribe...)
