  1. Soooo happy there’s another manga magazine! Hoping that’s a sign the recession is out of the business, because I almost cried when Tokyopop was closed. Thumbs up for the good news!

    1. Yes, after the ceasing of E-no, I felt quite low-spirited, after all – whenever something closes down it just means that the industry is low :(

      Now, though, we see that it’s higher spirited…
