Nouvelle Manga? Isn't that like "OFL Manga" or something?

I know it's been around longer than OEL... how does it compare?

Read the article

I'll probably pick up Kazuichi Hanawa's Doing Time first. Kazuichi Hanawa went to jail for 3 years and he use his experience to write the manga.

Also the front page news doen't mention when they are available, but the first wave of all 6 title should be available March 15, 2006.

Sounds pretty interesting.

Though I'd rather read manga about tacos or something.

Their Times of Botchan is quite good. I had to go to two stores to get volumes 2. My regular source opened the box in the afternoon but had sold all 5 copies by the time I got there after work. The other store had 2 of their 10 left.

Eight more volumes to go in this title.

I'll be mining it for material for my Newtype USA column and am already referring to it in the Anime Companion Supplement.
