International Manga Award Winner's Trip to Japan

Madeleine Rosca, runner-up in Japan's first International Manga Awards, has posted Part 1 of her International Manga Award trip to Japan:

We were visiting Kodansha - who have published Akira, Air Gear, Negima and a whole lot more of my favourites - and a combination of the food and the extreme heat and humidity was just hitting me so badly...within ten short minutes of meeting the editors, I realised I would have to leave, or risk the embarrassment of being sick on Kodansha's nicely polished floor.
