Reviews have been appearing here in short bursts lately, but I should be back to a more rigorous schedule soon. Shouldn’t the summer be relaxing? :) A few short items:
– Just yesterday, I got myself on the list to review 801 Media titles, so look for a little more yaoi content here from time-to-time! They also introduced me as a new reviewer in their blog!
– As a testament to my deep love for Yen Press’ One Thousand and One Nights, my review copy of volume eight arrived on my doorstep just yesterday and was immediately pushed to the front of the line (and believe me, it’s become quite a long line). Don’t miss my review!
– On a very different note, I reviewed a new volume in another of my favorite series this week–volume seven of Mushishi. I suppose the contrasting nature of these two series should put aside any lingering worry I might have about this blog not representing me (or my tastes) fully. :) ETA: Also, translator William Flanagan has linked to my review on his Facebook page, filling my fangirlish heart with glee!
– The ever-fabulous Danielle Leigh posted a shojo round-up a day or two ago, and we ended up rambling on together in comments about NANA. Look for more of this to come. /cryptic
I wonder how much of this actually constitutes “news”? Ah, well. More reviews tomorrow!

I like your newsy update. I’m happy to read your reviews, but I like to know more.

How interesting. It’s funny that you are the managing director of a theatre company, because that is what I would like to do someday (or somehow running a theatre company – I’m not picky about titles). I have about 6 years of formal training in theatre (more than that if you include my dance and theatre tech training), and I’m now pursuing my business education.
Performance, manga … what other interests do we have in common?

You’ll definitely be in a better place than I was! Having focused entirely on a performance career through school, I found myself wishing years down the line (after I left performing) that I had some formal education in business. Of course right now I’m wishing I had a formal education in education, so I guess these kinds of wishes are ongoing. :)

It’s never too late! It would be impractical for you to get another degree, but you can always read books. I hand down some of my business textbooks to friends so they can some of the education. I think there should be a GE for business since there are very few people who wouldn’t find it useful.
