As I mentioned, I popped to Orbital yesterday. It's a great little shop, lots of nice action figures and plenty of back issues. They used to have a really good manga section and it seemed to have disappeared... until I found out they've opened Orbital Manga!!! It's a new shop next to the Cinema Store, opposite Stringfellows. Cool, I wish them every success. And an old friend of a friend, Hannah works there, so just to provide some support, I bought Ohikno (oh, i don't know how to spell it!), something that people have been recommending.
It's a nice little shop - a bit strange in that they have the latest American imports downstairs (ie the first thing you come to) and then all the manga on the upper level (in a similar way that FP shops have all the toys as soon as you come in, and all the comics hidden away). And it's nice to have it next to the cinema store, which sells the american Entertainment Weekly, my favourite magazine. Also good to have something in the vicinity of where Comic Showcase used to be - it was never my favourite shop (it smelled funny), but I do miss it.
Speaking of manga, does anyone know if Lai the psyhcic girl is worth reading? I saw a pack, issues 1-11, in Gosh. Gosh do good packs too. They were selling Alpha Flight 1-50 at Christmas, and I wish I'd snapped it up before someone else did.
