Tokyo Babylon (Full Series)

Hi hi, sorry for all the silence the past couple of days. I’d made a rule for myself that I wasn’t allowed to spend time on a blog post until I’d finished my Tokyo Babylon review, and I finally have! Check it out over at Comics Should Be Good’s Tokidoki Daylight! It’s pretty image-heavy and probably looks more like one of my persuasion posts than a typical review, but I thought I’d do something a little special for the full series. I’m a tad nervous about my new place over there, so if you have the time, please check out my review and let me know what you think!

Look for a real blog post later on. I have lots of thoughts swirling through my brain, and no time to write them down! Soon!

For now, I’ll just pass on one fun little thing that my husband and I were reminded of by the concert we attended recently. This is only funny if you are pretty familiar with the music of Fountains of Wayne, but if you are, it is seriously hilarious. Go to this page, and click on the little player near the bottom to play Robbie Fulks’ “Fountains of Wayne Hotline.” If you’re a fan, it will make you laugh.

    What a wonderful full-series review! You have so skillfully evoked the various appeals of Tokyo Babylon and Clamp’s work. Aw. I want to go reread the series again!

    And HUGE kudos for managing such a thoughtful review without spoilers!

    Delighted to read the lovely comments you are getting from people “who know” on the review. Also, even though I know Fountains of Wayne not at all, I still found laughs in the link. My favorite line (realizing I won’t get a lot of the jokes) was “oh, that Gerald.”
