As you may have noticed, we have two new columnists debuting this week at Manga Bookshelf!
First, Derek Bown (Burning Lizard Studios) joins us with his new weekly column, Combat Commentary, in which he will be discussing fights in manga, pulling from a variety of genres and demographic categories. He gets things started with a look at one of his favorite shounen battles, from chapters 12-15 of Naruto.
And Phillip Anthony comes to us from Eeeper’s Choice to give us a “blokey” perspective (as he described it in his pitch to me) of well-known shoujo series, in his new monthly column, Shoujo I’m Scared Of. He begins with the first volume of Sailor Moon, and he plans to make his way through the entire series (along with Codename: Sailor V) as well as other classic titles like Princess Knight. Check out his introductory post for more.
Please welcome Derek and Phillip on board!
We’ve got at least two more new columns in the works for you all, and I’ve very excited share them as well. Stay tuned!
