Manga Moveable Feast launches Kurosagi week

This month’s Manga Moveable Feast is being hosted by Philip of the Eeeper’s Choice Podcast, and he has jumped right in with an overview of the series as a whole, individual overviews of vols. 1-4 and vols. 5-8, and link roundups for Day 1 and Day 2.

The Manga Village team picks the best of the past week’s new releases.

Jason Thompson is going with a Seven Deadly Sins theme in his House of 1000 Manga column at ANN, and this week he goes with “Lust,” counting down seven sexy manga that are more perversion than porn.

Erica Friedman presents a new episode of Yuri Network News at Okazu.

Melinda Beasi and Michelle Smith discuss their favorite yaoi in their latest BL Bookrack column at Manga Bookshelf.

Also at Manga Bookshelf, Matt Blind looks at some up-and-coming manga in his latest Manga Radar feature.

And finally, Manga Bookshelf is polling its readers to see if they want a forum. Vote now or forever hold your peace.

News from Japan: According to the retailer Mangaoh, vol. 15 of Gunslinger Girl will be the last one. Manga-ka Yoshinori Kobayashi, best known for his manga defending Japan’s role in World War II, has called for Japan to abandon nuclear power, aligning himself with a movement that mostly occupies the opposite end of the political spectrum from his usual roost.

    Anti-nuclear is not exactly a leftist stance anymore in Japan. Advocates for nuclear power are very few and far between. Plus IIRC Kobayashi is an ex-leftist anyway… though I may be thinking of Fujioka Nobukatsu.
