Some seriously great stuff in there.

Toto? Haridama Magical Cram School? Whoa, awesome! Those are both fantastic in my opinion. Toto especially, that's a great one. =D[/i]

None of the manga really caught my attention.

But, "Maid Machinegun"... I want that just because of the freaking title. I don't give a damn if it sucks and doesn't involve either a maid or a machine gun, I'm still getting it <_<

Oh, and...


Could someone give me some info on Me and The Devil Blues ?

It doesn't help that he actually changed kanji halfway through his career.

AWESOME. Ryuukishi07? I assume we'll get some of the Higurashi light novels then?

And Akihabara@DEEP is awesome as well. The drama was a little difficult to get into (due to one character's stuttering), but it was definitely enjoyable.

Ryukishi07 did an original story for Faust 6A and 6B, about some junior high school boys who invent a curse. It was pretty dang good.

That's fantastic news. I've yet to read any of his works besides the "no Naku Koro Ni" series.

And I just researched the other authors. Definitely looking forward to Kinoko Nasu's and Kouhei Kadono's works. I forgot how familiar some of those names were.
