A few notes: The Secret World of Arriety Picture Book, a simplified retelling of the movie’s story using filmcaps instead of new illustrations, is not the same as The Art of The Secret World of Arriety, which is a behind-the-scenes peek into process & production. Both are from Viz’s Ghibli Library imprint – if you like Miyazaki’s movies, its worth investing in those “Art of” books.

A Devil & Her Love Song has a listed publication date of 7 February on most sites, but has been in bookstores for about 2 weeks now; at least, I bought my copy a couple weeks ago.

I’m not sure what MangaMagazine.net‘s business model is, or how well they’re treating their artists, but I can tell you quite a few books are showing up in the Kindle store — or at least the chapters are, for 99¢ a pop. At that price, quite a few 1st chapters are selling well. (Well enough to start clogging up my bestseller chart, at any rate.) As you can see above, I’m going to list these chapters by respective volume (when known) or in a condensed listing (i.e. chapters 1-10 as seen above) just to keep thing neat.

The blast from the past this week is a quartet of books from Fantagraphics’s Eros imprint (I thought I had found all those but I guess I need to revisit the topic every now and then.) With a name like Eros, to say nothing of the titles, you can guess exactly what is in these books; Silky Whip is from Air Gear and Tenjo Tenge artist Oh!Great and so might be of (additional) interest.
