Manhwa is really not on my radar too much. I’ve sampled a few series, but I think I’ve only read around 3 of the titles on Manga Critic’s 10 Must-Read Manhwa list. (10, 20, and 30, Forest of Gray City, and Dokebi Bride)

Swanjun goes over upcoming Viz releases. I’m most excited about Kamisama Kiss by Julietta Suzuki since I love Karakuri Odette. I’m also curious to see how well the baseball manga Cross Game does over here.

There’s an online book donation drive for two reservation schools. The Ya Ya Yas have some details about it.
