Chobits, Natsume Ono, and the latest manga releases

Guest writer Shaenon Garrity celebrates Chobits in the latest House of 1000 Manga column at ANN.

Erica Friedman has the latest Yuri Network News at Okazu.

Alex Hoffman posts links to more writing about Natsume Ono on the day 4 archive and the end-of-the-week page, along with a few final links, at Manga Widget. And Ono is the topic of discussion for the new, revamped Manga Out Loud podcast as well.

Connie puts the spotlight on manga artist Senno Knife at Slightly Biased Manga.

Erica Friedman takes a look at Kiss Magazine and Matt Blind breaks out another list of manga best-sellers, these ones from earlier this month, at Manga Bookshelf.

Here’s a funny bit from Matt Thorn’s blog: Kitty-chan tells all.
