Monster: The Medical Annotation

 #

A close look at the Naoki Urasawa's manga thriller. I seem to recall there being less medicine in later volumes, but still, good while it lasts.

Fortune on the anime/manga industry

The founder of ADV goes on at length about the importance of the fanbase, then comes out with this:

When ADV thought a Scooby Doo-esque series called Ghost Stories would be a dud, it issued a version with an intentionally inaccurate translation of the script--redubbing the characters to be more American (the leader now has attitude, and the boring sidekick was made into a born-again Christian)--knowing that would stir powerful passions. Authenticity being the Way of the Otaku, fans obliged by erupting in a furor.

Berserk v.29 fan-translation is out

Only a week after it came out in Japan; the official English releases are still twenty volumes behind. Worth buying: the later volumes are fantastic.
