This is what tethysdust said this week:
Furansu Nikki was the most memorable of this week's manga. It seems so strange to have a Japanese manga about the perspective of French girls on Japanese otaku culture. Mangakko was very short; it's basically a single joke. Junai Junkies would be for people who want lots of sex and nudity in their manga.
My opinion: Furansu Nikki
- If you're interested in seeing people from other countries interested in manga, then you should check out this manga.Junai Junkies
- If you're in the mood for an ecchi comedy, then you should check out this manga instead.Mangakko
- On the other hand, if you're in the mood for reading something short (a one-shot, perhaps) about, you guessed it - manga again, then you should go for this manga instead.Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
