It’s not too late to greet everyone a happy new year, no? Well then, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
There’s cause for excitement in 2010, with a lot of energy carried over from last year. Amidst the flurry of activities of October, we were unable to thank the Komikon for the ComicAid Award they gave the Japan Foundation, Manila, citing the office for the support it has given the Philippine comic industry. Thank you Komikon!!!
And as 2009 winded up, we were surprised with another citation, this time coming from the HQ: the JF President’s Special Award for the Mobile Manga Library. The award is presented to the office which draws up and carries out a new creative and innovative project. The Mobile Manga Library was noted to be a creative, efficient and effective means to promote J-Pop culture.
We hope we can have more and newer manga titles soon! We keep our readers’ title recommendations, and who knows, they just might be on the shelves anytime soon. Here’s to finally completing Nana and Nodame Cantabile. Things are certainly looking up!
