I'm kinda sad Hime-chan's Ribbon there, but I saw 3 other manga, including Kodocha, that I recognized.

I instantly found out that Neighborhood Story is written by the same person that wrote Paradise Kiss and Nana.

Is anyone from the states familiar with Akazukin ChaCha? It used to play on Cartoon Network when I was little and was absolutely amazing.

I have heard of it but am not really familiar with it. Congrats to Ribon for lasting this long.

Akazukin Chacha had a bit of a fanbase in the US through VHS fansubs in the mid 90s, but it was never licensed and never aired here, so there's not too many who are familiar with it. Seeing your post, I was pretty surprised to learn that an English dub was made for it that aired on Cartoon Network in Southeast Asian countries.

I am, but I literally only watched it and found out about it a year or two ago.

I'm a little surprised that Mihona Fujii is represented by Passion Girls and not GALS!, the latter of which ran for 12 volumes (vs. Passion Girls' 5) and got an anime adaptation (as Chou GALS! Kotobuki Ran/Super GALS!).

To my knowledge, this is the oldest manga magazine to be still published.

I'm only familiar with a few of these titles but I still love most of the manga Ribon publishes today. Very Happy
