I've been thinking...what are the chances of an Arakawa side-story compilation? You know, a tankobon with STRAY DOG, all three (four) chapters of Shanghai, Bat in a Blue Sky, etc. Otherwise I doubt we'll see any of them state-side.
Yeah, that will be nice!!! I'll buy it!! biggrin.gif

I'm wondering... Arakara-sensei's the other story, Juu shin Enbu will start (this one is a series) October 21st, with the GanGan Powered magazine...
Any news on this one anywhere?? unsure.gif

Not that I know of. I'll use LJ to keep you guys in the link, seeing as they tend to know this stuff even before we do.

Attention Manga Lust fans:
Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

Noble Farmer 2006 (serialized in Unpoko), 2009-07 (serialized in Wings)

Genres: comedy, slice of life

Also, if anyone know any info on 「百姓貴族(仮)」"Hyakushou Kizoku" ("Noble Farmer", or something like that in English translation, I think): That's the tentative title for Arakawa-sensei's sort of manga essay kind of thingy (I think) on Japanese magazine "Unpoco(?)" vol. 8, coming out in Dec. 28 in Japan.... If anyone hear anything about it, please post!! Thanks!! smile.gif


ETA (replying to the post below ^^): Actually, 百姓 means "farmer" in Japanese. C:
(Though I understand that reading literally in chinese characters, the word means "100 last names = commoner") ^^

This series doesn't really have a "plot" but it's very entertaining to read that's for sure! Lots of cracks. It's all about Arakawa's farmer life and her family. =D

Oh, this is my 1800th post!
