As part of settling in to our new multi-blog format, we’ve been rearranging the furniture a bit over the past week at Manga Bookshelf, with a view towards improving navigation and making more recent content easily accessible from the front page. We’ve also picked up a brand new logo (thanks to Kuriousity‘s Lissa Pattillo), replacing the old, me-centric design with something that better represents the network as a whole.
Content is falling into place as well, including a new, collaborative incarnation of my old Pick of the Week, offering a more diverse selection of new manga for readers to choose from. Regular weekly and monthly features from each of the network’s blogs remain as they always have been, ensuring that there’s plenty new to read on pretty much any day of the week.
A couple of special features I’m aware of coming up in February:
2/12: Breaking Down Banana Fish, the next Banana Fish roundtable, covering volumes 11-13
2/23: A special edition of Off the Shelf, featuring Osamu Tezuka’s Ayako
So, readers, my question for you today: What would you most like to see from the new Manga Bookshelf?
More reviews? Roundtables? Collaborative features? Flame-inducing essays? We can’t make promises, but we’d really like to know!
