Picked up some random manga the other day. In Japanese, of course. Of particular note is ヒカルの碁 (Hikaru no Go), which is apparently about some guy who wakes up the ancient spirit of a (female) go-playing master in a go board (碁盤, goban), who then takes up residence in his mind, and helps him overcome his go-playing rivals. Um, well, yeah, it's clearly Japanese. And I have the first issue. Woo. I dunno, it could be good. Ultimately, I guess it doesn't matter what it is, it's practice.
Also some random issue of ワンピース (One Piece) and Deeper Samurai キョウ (Kyo). Not sure I'm really interested in either, but the Tattered Cover had them half-off, so what the heck. I also have the first three issues of Alien 9 somewhere on the way from Japan. I suppose they'll probably show up in the next week or so. I'll have to go check out the Japanese bookstore in Sakura Square at some point in the near future, too.
