Tanuki just needs to realize that a manga about him just wouldn't work! Actually, it would probably become a huge hit. I'll give it a thought. I love the variety of manga out there. It would be so wonderful if we had that kind of variety in American comics. Things are getting better now that big publishers like Scholastic are putting out creative comics for kids. As far as Japanese manga, I just started reading BAKUMAN and I love it! It's so fun to read about how the manga industry works in Japan and how passionate manga creators are about their art and careers.
