Yotsuba & Christmas

Ho ho ho! It's Christmas time! The time of the year in which we all give each other material items to prove that our loved ones mean about as much as those items are worth! And you know what? All of you mean the world to me, ...

Yotsuba & Thanksgiving
by Ben Huber

It's that of the year again, when we gather with friends and family around a table laden with all manner of food and feast. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn, bread, cornbread, gravy, and that one dish that your aunt always brings that nobody really likes but you eat it anyway because it's like the only thing she knows how to make. You know what I'm talking about.

So what better way to celebrate the day of stuffing your face than with a comic that is (at best) tangentially related?! Can you think of one? I didn't think so, bub. That's why I write this BS.

Come one, come all! On the spookiest (or, depending on your religion, spoopiest) of nights, I return with gifts! Usually we give out candy on Halloween, but instead I'm giving you the gift of poorly-written edits of someone else's manga! Why you put up with me, I'll never understand. This is it friends! A true Season 2 of Yotsuba edits! These will not be weekly -- they'll be approximately "whenever I feel like it." Hope you enjoy!

Yotsuba& Volume 12 gets Japanese release date!
by Eric Koziol

Heaven smiles upon us! Kiyohiko Azuma just tweeted that the checks for Yotsuba& Vol. 12 have been completed and it will be released March 9 in Japan. Given the release schedule for North America so far, one might assume that its English release will be next May, but who really knows.

The Japanese release of Vol. 11 was November 26, 2011, so it has been a good long while since a new Yotsuba& volume has been put into my hands. To say I am excited is an understatement. This went directly into my calendar. Only the most important things go directly into my calendar.

Yotsuba &!'s Danbo wants you to buy ET!

Miura could sell me anything, especially when she invokes the power of Danbo! This time she not peddling Jaws Blu-Rays, but instead the classic Spielberg flick, ET. Perhaps they could do stop motion movies with Yotsuba&! Revoltechs. That I would buy! [Via ANN]

Danbo vs the fury of Jaws

Jaws is all set to be released on a special collector's edition Blu-Ray in Japan. The Speilberg hit has an exciting new commercial with an unlikely ambassador. Who in the world could control the sheer power of this...

Yotsuba trolls Louis CK

Well, maybe our favorite wide eye girl didn't quite troll the American comedian, but close enough. On a recent episode of his sitcom Louie, the comedian can be seen ever so lovingly stroking his issues of Yotsuba. Not so weird though, right? I mean who in the world doesn't read the Yotsuba&! manga? It's always good to see our girl in action. [Via Crunchyroll]
