More on Digital’s print hiatus; what girls like about Shonen Jump

I looked a bit deeper into Digital Manga’s announcement to suspend print publication for six months at Robot 6, and Alex Hoffman has some thoughts at Manga Widget as well.

Here’s a treat to kick off the weekend: Shaenon Garrity counts down five badass shoujo manga as guest contributor to the House of 1000 Manga column at ANN.

Tony Yao has an interesting piece up this morning with data from a recent article in The Nikkei Shimbun about the gender balance of Shonen Jump readers and what that means to the contents of the magazine. Good stuff!

The Manga Bookshelf team take a critical look at next week’s new releases in print and at JManga.

The next Manga Moveable Feast is a Thanksgiving dinner, and host Matt Blind issues the call for contributions.
