A manga sort of day

What do I have to write about today? ...We went to church...studied the scriptures...and read manga. That's pretty much our day in a nutshell. The manga we read was mostly Koi ni Mudaguchi, the newest series by Ryoko Fukuyama. It's full of ridiculousness and thoroughly awesome. It would be so much fun to translate...and also a pain in the neck. I don't know if we'd ever get the honor, though, because Viz got Fukuyama-sensei's last series.

And that reminds us of the thing I always think about when I think about Ryoko Fukuyama. I think we posted about it here before, but it would have been like ten years ago, so I think it's worth a retelling now. It's from back in the day when we were following a bunch of manga artists on Twitter. Fukuyama-sensei started whining about her massive craving for pancakes... And I couldn't remember the details, so I actually went back in our LiveJournal to find our last telling of it, Collapse )

And there you have it.

Today I'm thankful for the lovely musical number we had in sacrament meeting, Hakusensha offering the first two volumes of Koi ni Mudaguchi free online for a limited time, pancakes, having a ward activity on Saturday, and finally having an excuse to show off the Chat Noir t-shirts we got back in May.
