Manga Review: Ranma 1/2 Volume 20 by Rumiko Takahashi
Seattle Post Intelligencer - Aug 12, 2012

Ranma 1/2 Volume 20 is a manga with the story and art by Rumiko Takahashi, and it was published in North America by Viz Media. This review is for the second printing of this volume, which was released in 2005. The Ranma 1/2 manga volumes are "flipped," which means that they read like American books instead of traditional Japanese manga. Ranma 1/2 is rated "T+" for older teens, due to some panels that feature female nudity. ...

Jason Thompson's House of 1000 Manga
Anime News Network - Aug 16, 2012

Anime News Network ... Truth in advertising is the text on the cover of Trigun: DEEP SPACE PLANET FUTURE GUN ACTION!! Since it's first appearance in 1996 in Monthly Shônen Captain (from which it shortly moved to the seinen magazine Young King Ours), Yasuhiro Nightow's sci-fi Western Trigun has been a superhit among manga and anime fans, and maybe even some American comic readers, around the world. It's been adapted into two anime, the second one 12 years after the first one, a true test of endurance. I've seen that red longcoat and blonde spiky hair at every anime convention I've been to since 1998. (It does stand out across the room.) All this, even though it's less as half as long as Dragon Ball, Naruto and One Piece. Apparently it's not the length that matters. ...

Hey, Answerman! Book 'Em, Lou
Anime News Network - Aug 17, 2012

I've always seen Anime/Manga as primarily a visual medium, with good art often outweighing a weak story; so it drives me crazy to see the sheer number of series art books available in Japan that I know will never see release in America. The more popular series can get several books that fill in details about the characters backgrounds and world history that are only hinted at at best in the shows themselves. While some American manga distributors do release similar products (One Piece, Naruto and Death Note come to mind), little or nothing comes out associated with anime. ...

10 Manga You Should Read (That Are Licensed In America!)

The Mary Sue - Aug 15, 2012

Much like anime, good, feminist manga is often difficult to find, especially when you’re relying on reading titles that are legally licensed in the United States. It’s often a very thin line that separates manga that pokes fun at sexist tropes, and manga that regularly utilizes sexism to advance its plot, and even if you can find that rare-as-a-unicorn story, there’s no guarantee the story will be compelling and worth $10 a pop. But don't worry: we're here to help.  ...
