At PW, I take a look back at JManga’s brief existence with business manager Robert Newman. And Justin rounds up some thoughts on the demise of JManga at Organization ASG.

I also rounded up the new license announcements from SakuraCon at MTV Geek.

PictureBox, which published Yoichi Yokoyama’s Garden and Travel, announced two new titles yesterday: World Map Room, by Yokoyama, and Gold Pollen and Other Stories, a collection of short stories by Seiichi Hayashi, the creator of Red-Colored Elegy.

Matthew Cycyk writes about Cross Game and the Artistic Subtleties of Mitsuru Adachi at Matt Talks About Manga.

Laura looks forward to some upcoming shoujo releases at Heart of Manga.
