I should try to update this more than once a month….

Things that have happened since my last update:

  • The trade volume of Higurashi 1 was released! Check out the 4-page color insert toward the end. Glad that made it back in. 🙂
  • Broccoli USA is shutting down. 😦 This is very sad; not only did they produce some excellent books (and – to be selfish for a moment – I was looking forward to Cigarette Kisses), but I really liked the couple of people I met who worked there. I hope they are doing okay!
  • I finished Higurashi 3 and Mr. Flower Groom. Whew. Volumes 3 and 4 of Higurashi are a real pain to clean (lots of text over art/tone), but I think (hope) my cleaning is improving. I am pretty pleased with volume 4 especially (so far!). By the way, both these volumes will be printed from the original Japanese files (rather than scanned books), so the quality in general will be better and less art will be trimmed off.
  • I got a page in the Anime News Network database. Hee! (Yes, I updated it myself, but it’s still missing some things; oddly, The Devil’s Secret is not in their database at all!)

Hey, is there anything anyone would like to know about lettering? I think I have a grand total of 2 readers and one of you knows more about manga production than I do, but if you guys have any requests just let me know…. 😉
