Finally, another PKK links round-up! Heads-up that I’m still processing a huge backlog, so some of these links are old, and some new stuff is missing. I’m still trying to balance two blogs plus freelance work (my day job), but I’ll tentatively say: expect new posts here Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from here on out. They may be short posts, and I may miss a few days here and there, but that’s my plan. Now, for the links:
- Deal alert: Anna over Manga Report is selling her old manga for $5 a volume (plus free shipping). She’s a great seller: I ordered four books from her, and they arrived quickly and in like new condition.
- Lianne of Sleep Is For the Weak defends her former employer Tokyopop from the haters.
- Manga Critic has a first look at the manga adaptation for Gail Carriger’s Soulless (at right). I had mixed feelings about the original book, but seeing these previews, I think the manga adaptation might be cool.
- Another Moto Hagio title licensed! Fantagraphics will publish Heart of Thomas in 2012, as a single 480-page volume.
- I can’t handle the tragic storyline of The Princess’s Man, but I love Dangermousie’s TPM screencaps.
- City Hunter co-stars Lee Min Ho & Park Min Young are dating (the comments are funny/scary–“I’m so happy! But sad. But happy! But sooooo depressed.”).
- My current to-watch list consists of one title: Protect the Boss.
- A big thank you to @MagicalEmi for tweeting about Pirates in Love, a popular Japanese love simulation game. It is available now in English, for free from the iTunes store (here is a preview). I don’t even know, you guys.
- Brian Ruh posted an Amazon guide for “Hayao Miyazaki’s 50 Recommended Children’s Books.”
- Soy sauce can make a dead squid move. I saw this three days ago, and I’m still freaked out.
