Just a few highlights today—I worked a 14-hour day yesterday, and even though I didn’t have to stay up all night to watch the returns, I’m beat! More comprehensive coverage will be coming tomorrow. Thank you to all of you who voted. And one more public service announcement, because I talked to a lot of people in this situation yesterday: If you are not properly registered to vote—if you never have registered, or if you have moved since the last time you registered, take care of that today! Don’t wait until next election day.
Okay, I’m done. Here’s some manga news:
The Manga Bookshelf team discusses their Pick of the Week—and a pretty awesome week it is!
Laura’s latest shoujo manga license request at Heart of Manga is Suki-tte li na yo.
It’s a sad day in the manga blogosphere: Kate Dacey is shutting down The Manga Critic, mainly because of some interesting new (non-manga) opportunities that have cropped up. I’ll miss her smart reviews and commentary, but she plans to contribute occasional columns to Manga Bookshelf and she knows the doors of this blog are always open to her as well.
