Manga and the US Industry on the Engine 

I've been reading Ellis's new forum The Engine a bit lately, and the combination of limited membership (basically creators, publishers, etc) and focus on non-superhero topics makes for an interesting perspective. For one thing, a combo of regular indie creators and OEL ones without the friction you might see in other areas.

So, one of the more interesting topics has been started by Dirk on what lessons the US industry might learn from manga. Of course this springboards from his Journal editorial. There was some decent topics brought up as a result of Pat's response in here and here, but so far I'm really liking the Engine's take on things.

Everything from the Japanese industry, cherry picking, emotions, decompression, and Takuhai come up. Besides, any thread that brings up Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou has to have potential, right?
