About page.
General manga podcast info.
I also have a tumblr, which I do almost nothing with.

I’m discussing manga here, typically in essayist fashion, but the front page and archives can be difficult to navigate. Therefore, here is a simple set of lists to make things easier. I only review manga I like so if it’s listed here it has my recommendation. Some notes: if you’re in a review, you can click on these little faded arrows on the sides to see the next or previous article. Also, many of the category and tag links to the side have alt text when you hover your mouse over them, explaining some things a little better (like what “4-koma” means). All the list items below, including the list titles, have alt text as well.

My youtube channel, which is on hiatus, featured visual podcasts on manga I read throughout the week (plus one highlight manga I either had been meaning to read, or hadn’t heard of). The “visual” aspect is that I showed off manga pages and other images while I spoke, with some (IMO) pleasant transitions. Also, lots of relaxing music. Speaking of…

An introduction to Touhou: [Touhou Project Primer]

*Or you can just click that link ^^^ to go there immediately.*

Some unusual, notable tags:
great paneling / paneling excellence, friendship (no, really), butts, card games / TCG, depressing, silent / textless, hobby / interest manga, nostalgia / nostalgic, feel bad, college / university, surprisingly not yuri

Total: 97

(+1 anime and +1 novella (addendum reviews aren’t counted, also))

The following article pertains to a doujin manga that takes its setting from part of the Touhou Project video game series. If you’re unfamiliar with it, you should read my Touhou Project Primer first. It’s best to play the games before taking in anything else.
