    Just finished the first volume and really enjoyed it. The core story is about a used manga store and it's owners and customers but each individual chapter (which there are 6 or so in each volume) revolve around an actual classic manga/comic series and how it relates to the customers and owners in the story. And at the end they have an actual real manga store owner/historian in Japan give you a summary of the manga from each chapter and it's historical significance.

    I read the first issue of silver spoon, the new manga from Hiromu Arakawa the lady that did Full Metal Alchemist. It's about a kid who goes to a farming school because he wants to be the top of his class but then finds out that OH NO everything he must learn is about farming which he knows nothing about. It was incredibly dull, had way too many OH NO I'M SHOCKED moments. Also every characters is reused art from FMA. Even Armstrong shows up as a teacher. He's not called Armstrong but he looks exactly the same even with the sparkle.

    I was reading Shintaro Kago's "Suck It" when I realized that I should really be doing something better with my Sunday afternoon.

    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Man, the lightsaber duels in the Star Wars manga adaptation by Hisao Tamaki look awesome.
