New manga and a slew of reviews

Manga Recon gets the week off to a good start with Weekly Recon, their list of this week’s new manga plus a handful of short reviews, and TheOtaku posts their list as well. If you’re looking further into the future, Ed takes a look at the latest issue of Diamond Previews.

Two must-reads in the same place: Same Hat! Same Hat!! posts a recap (with pictures!) of the Tezuka panel at San Francisco’s Asian Arts Museum. And then they post a scanlation of yet another seriously surrealistic short comic by Shintaro Kago.

At Okazu, Erica Friedman posts a two-part sneak preview of Yuri Monogatari 5.

The Star of Malaysia has an interesting article about the manga based on the Heian-era novel The Tale of Genji.

Going to Anime Vegas? Yaoi Press will be there, representing themselves and Netcomics.
