Giovanni's Island is as powerful as it is predictable. It may be one of the few films to focus on the Kuril Islands, but its tale will prove immediately familiar to anyone acquainted with cinema's typical treatments of war-torn children.

Viz Media has been emailing manga fans on its mailing lists about a survey on online manga downloads. The survey asks about the fans' current manga choices and preferences on pricing, selection, and venues for possible downloads. The defunct ComicsOne was one of the first companies to sell manga downloads in English. Other companies that are exploring online manga sales include DC Comics (through its investment in Flex Comix), 801 Media, Netcomics, and Tokyopop. Thanks, Starks.
