From my standpoint as an archivist, this last batch of data was fantastic: Not just the Old Skool Viz[tm] but some lovely yaoi I wasn’t previously tracking, some original DMP [pre yoai], and what I think is the first ALC title added to the database because it showed up in sources. [I’d previously added Yuri Monogatari volumes as I actually own a few, and was tracking them before I started the charts]

AND (as if this week needed an “and”) Black Leopard is yet another Manhua (Chinese/Hong Kong comics) that I get to add to the database.

Good week all around. For those playing along with the home game, my database now contains 10,837 volumes.
