Not long ago, we asked readers what they’d like to see from the new, multi-site Manga Bookshelf. One of the requests made of us at the time was for some kind of “anime vs. manga” feature, in which anime adaptations would be compared against their manga source material. We all thought it was a great idea! Trouble is… none of us watch much anime.
Today, please welcome Cathy Yan, the newest contributor to Manga Bookshelf, who will be sharing her thoughts on anime with us monthly via her new column, “Don’t Fear the Adaptation.” The first of Cathy’s articles has been posted this morning, featuring Rumiko Takahashi’s classic seinen romantic comedy, Maison Ikkoku.
