Yes I am being serious ^_^ a Lucky Star manga. Article from ANN
The North American anime and manga distributor Bandai Entertainment has announced at its Comic-Con International panel today it licensed Lucky Star, Kagami Yoshimizu‘s four-panel manga that inspired the slice-of-life comedy anime of the same name.
Of course I am going to buy this no questions asked. I love Lucky Star and will get this. Just wonder when it will come out. Though I bet it will be a while.
Not really much to say due to lack of info in the article I am sorry -_- Though this is something I will be all over so I will inform you of release dates and such ok ^^ keep checking in.
Perhaps not one of the most pressing matters, but this was something I found pretty interesting. Below is a excerpt from the Anime News Network article.
Volume 30 of Masashi Kishimoto‘s Naruto (Viz Media) and Volume 20 of Natsuki Takaya‘s Fruits Basket (Tokyopop), arguably two of the most popular manga currently being published in English, remain the only Japanese comics on the USA Today newpaper’s list of America’s top 150 best-selling books for the week of July 7 to July 13. After cresting at #45 and #63 respectively, sales of both volumes have dropped. Naruto 30 now ranks at #50, while the Fruits Basket volume, also in its second full week as a best-seller, holds the #79 spot.
I found this to be a bit shocking due to the fact that before when Naruto vol. 29 came out it was one of the top books out at the time. Now it has already dropped. Which leads me to ask myself, are the readers already getting a bit bored of the new Naruto Shippuden?
I for one can never find the books. The only stores locally within 20 minutes of my house is Wal-Mart. Other than that I have to drive an hour and a half away for a Books A Million. Every time I go to Wal-Mart though they never carry any manga at all. Only after 2 weeks of checking in did I manage to get a copy of volume 30 for myself.
Anyway though, I found the news kind of a bit odd and wanted to point it out.
I like to check my blog stats everyday to see how many hits this little blog gets, and lately I have noticed most of my hits are from people looking for the release date of Shakugan no Shana volume 4.
I thought I might do a follow up post from my previous one. I still have not found out the release date, and I have checking around the web quite frequently for any news. If anything else comes up I will be sure to post it here ^_^ so keep checking in please.
