It's Not Icky, It's Ikki

VIZ launches a new online magazine.

I like it when I occasionally get to feel validated-- I noted to readers that they shouldn't be worried about VIZ's continued presence even in the face of Shojo Beat's closure, and today what do I hear? VIZ has launched a new online magazine under its VIZ Signature line called Ikki.

Well, calling it a “new” magazine is a little iffy, since the About page actually ties it in with the original Spirits Zoukan Ikki magazine, a bi-monthly add-in for Shogakukan's Big Comic Spirits mangabon.

The magazine has launched with the first chapter of Daisuke Igarashi's Children of the Sea, which is a beautifully illustrated supernatural tale-- there are watercolors mixed in with the traditional manga art, it's pretty stunning. Definitely worth checking out.

And while I'm speaking of VIZ manga online-- did you guys remember to read the latest chapter of Rin-ne? We're finallly getting to see some more of Rokudo's background! Not to mention some other familiar sights. Sakura looks exactly like Kagome with her hair down. And one of those boats towards the ends looks pretty familiar, too...
