July 2007 Nakayoshi

Reading through it,the one series that began serialization was Koko ha ni Iruyo by Ema Toyama who has some recognition stateside.The other series in this volume(including Jigoku Shoujo,Shugo Chara,and Yes!Purikyua 5)were already in the middle of their serializations,though one serialization appeared to conclude.I've noticed that at least a third of the authors whose stories are serialized in this issue(others include PEACH-PIT,Haruka Fukushima,and Natsumi Andou)have some stateside recognition;not to mention that Nakayoshi was the original home of three series that later would become animated:Sailor Moon,Miracle Girls,Mahou Kishi Rayearth,and Card Captor Sakura.BTW,I was able to decode the author names via furigana.Too bad Oto's video shop didn't have enough current shounen manga phonebooks in stock,most of them were discounted outdates that had to be sold without covers.OTOH,I don't expect it to be the only time I go there...

Happy 27th birthday to Yumi Fukuzawa Ringo Seto Minako Tominaga Kana Ueda...
