The Daily Shin Buun 02/04/09

The Daily Shin Buun (literally "New Buzz;' "shinbun" is also the Japanese word for newspaper) is a collection of bits and pieces of news we've gathered throughout the day.

Okay, guys, don't say I didn't warn you-- tomorrow I'll be traveling. I'll get up what posts I can prior to and between flights, but you may wind up with one really big round-up tomorrow instead. I'll do what I can!


That said, today's kept up the pattern of relative quietness.

Manga:
  • VIZ congratulates itself on kicking the 2008 BookScan Top 20 Graphic Novels list's ass, so to speak. Go VIZ!
  • V.B. Rose fans, rejoice, the series is ending! Oh, wait, that's not happy. Be sad! Wait...
  • Word is that Yen Press has had its first cancellation, of the comic World of Quest. I wouldn't categorize it as a manga-- it wasn't even going for that kind of style –but it's still a shame to see it go. I've got an e-mail out to Yen to confirm/comment, so I'll let you know if I hear more.


Movies:

  • Ooh-- talk about things I want to import. But not from Japan: from the UK! Word is that the novel Paprika, upon which Satoshi Kon based his 2006 phenomenal animated film, is being released in the UK by Alma Books. Do so totally want. It's due out in April.


Better get my butt to bed-- my flight leaves pretty early!

hm... I'm curious what Paprika would be like in book form...

About "World of Quest": This is a animated series that aired in the states back last year - it is owned by Cookie Jar, but it didn't do so well that it would stay. It seems that the comic has suffered the same fate.
