Good translations and obscure manga

Jason Thompson treats us to another visit to the dusty attic of manga with a look at Ceres: Celestial Legend at ANN.

Sean Gaffney takes the first look at next week’s new manga.

The Comic-Con reports keep flowing in: Start off with Matt Thorn’s account of escorting Moto Hagio at SDCC, because it is interesting and truly touching. Daniella Orihuela-Gruber files her account of day 2, and Mike has a slideshow at Anime Diet.

The latest course of the Manga Moveable Feast is set with contributions from David Welsh, Kristin, and the Reverse Thieves.

David Welsh posts his weekly license request at The Manga Curmudgeon: He’d like to see Gokinjo Monogatari (The Neighborhood Story), please.

Matt Blind posts the latest set of manga rankings drawn from online sales at Rocket Bomber.

Lots of people like to harp on bad translations, but it’s harder to know when it’s done well; translators Alethea and Athena Nibley find some nice things to say about a couple of translations in their latest column at Manga Life.

News from Japan: ANN has word of a ToLoveRu spinoff manga series and four more new series, each one devoted to a member of the pop idol group AKB48.

Reviews: Connie takes a short look at a number of works by est em at Slightly Biased Manga. Tangognat reads a handful of Harlequin Romance manga from Digital’s eManga site.
