The latest Manga Moveable Feast, an online gathering focusing on covering one manga title or author, is Wild Adapter. Melinda Beasi and Michelle Smith at Manga Bookshelf are co-hosting discussion this week, kicking off with an introduction to the series.
Unfortunately, due to timing and availability, Ed and I won’t be able to participate in this go-round. I’m not a big fan of gang story or boys’ love manga, although I would have tried it if the library had it, but no luck. At the time of the planning of this event, the publisher, Tokyopop, hadn’t yet gone out of business, but the six volumes published are easily available used at discount prices. It appears the future of the series is in question, although since the series is character-driven, not plot-driven, according to fans, that’s less of an impediment than it sounds. If you have a chance to do so, check out Wild Adapter for this MMF week!
