Whoa, I just had a "eek" moment clicking one of the links that I hadn't looked at before.
Would it be possible to add a "Not Safe for Work" or NSFW warning to the ones with the more, shall we say, naughty pictures?
Thanks!

I'm posting some humor that is NSFW (Not safe for work) in the More Pawprints. Very funny to me at this moment and thought I would share.

Whoa, Klaus seems to be channeling Eroica over there.

This is obviously Lawrence of the S.I.S., Eroica's flamboyant answer to James Bond, disguised as Klaus.

Thanks for writing! I've bought 4 things off this list (and 2 tangentially mentioned) and downloaded 2 others -- indeed, that accounts for the vast majority of manga I own -- so the series has much appreciated. As has been the compleat listings included every week; I used that convenient table of contents many times.

Ditto. I've really enjoyed both reading about the mangas and why you find them totally awesome.

Any chance you would consider putting together one of those Amazon lists of all this stuff? Maybe you could get referral fees from all your hard work. I've bought quite a bit of manga off your recommendations!

I've been following this series of reviews for a little while now, but I'm afraid I've been remiss in commenting on them! Anyways, just wanted to say that this series of reviews has been terrifically entertaining, and you've definitely made me check out some fantastic series.

(Thank you especially for introducing me to Eroica, which is pure, undiluted 70s joy. :D)

Now, I haven't read Illuminated, but I've been working on a review of The Impressionist for a while now, and I can't seem to get past how blatant Mr.

You mean because they'd invented sound. [laughter] I went to film school and shot on 16mm film and we edited on splicers and tape.

I figure this is as good a place as any...

Shaenon, I was rereading "Here is Greenwood" for the *cough*teenth time and one name caught my eye. I had no idea you were part of the effort to bring my favorite little shojo manga to the U.S. Thank you a thousand times over for the great job you did. :-)
2nd-Nov-2008 06:42 am (UTC)

Aw, thanks! I loved editing Greenwood. It's one of my favorite manga I've worked on. I cried when I got to the end.
2nd-Nov-2008 03:05 pm (UTC)
I can understand that. The boys just pull you into their world. :-)

thank you thank you thank you!
I happened upon this while looking up an old favorite, cyborg 009, and now I'm hooked! I started reading some entries of manga that I already know of and wow... you're writing is right on point! I really like the small tidbits of trivia and personal thoughts.
I've bookmarked this page and I'll surely return to read every entry<3

Love the posts you wrote for old shoujo mangas! What do you think Rose of Versailles? That's one kick-ass blast from the past.
