I still need to pick up Wandering Son. Definitely agree with Bride's Story though.

I am very intrigued with Mangaman though. That's the first I've heard of that title. I'm going to have to check it out.

Wandering Son is beyond good. I loved it.

You should also try Wandering Son if you have not. It really is good.

Oh, I already own both volumes. And both of Bride's Story. I've been veering away from Blue Exorcist because I'm skeptical about it being more than a generic shonen title.

I would like to read Bride's Story except it's only available in the US in hardcover.

And this is stopping you how? Yes, the cover is hard, but the price isn't significantly higher than a typical manga. About $11 on Amazon or free from your local library. Try harder. Very Happy

When can we expect a follow-up story about angry parents and the Liberal conspiracy to turn your kids gay with evil foreign comics?

Great news. I will eventually be reading this. We have it but I just haven't gotten around to it. Between finishing up Battle Royal and trying to get to Ayako I have quite a bit of reading. But will definitely be reading it soon. And I definitely want to read Brides Story. Now if Fantagraphics can consider Aoi Hana, that will be the icing on the cake.

Didn't know that there was a Ghandi manga. Knew about the Che Guevara one. Good thing there's more than just one at my job. So that's on the list for ordering as well.

Both are really great books and I'm very happy to see them be recognized. They're books that one could really 'get something out of'. Wandering Son was my favorite manga last year and A Bride's Story was the most beautifully drawn. Kaoru Mori might be human, but her hands can't possibly be.

The more people that read these, the better, especially if it might lead to Sweet Blue Flowers being published in the United States.

I'm look forward more to a tempest in a demitasse over the brief nudity in A Bride's Story.

I joke, but it isn't inconceivable, even if it isn't likely.
