Peter has an interesting post about the yakuza, including some stuff I didn't know. Like where the name "yakuza" comes from.

UPDATE: He's got a bunch of Japanese fan magazines for sale.

The original Nanoha series was 2004. A's was 2005. StrikerS was 2007. And Nanoha, Hayate, and Fate are still popular cover girls for these kinds of magazines. That's really rather surprising after all this time! (It's the loli versions, and maybe that's why. Ick.)

Nanoha and friends are back in the news due to the movies.  The A's movie came out mid-July, so the lolisized versions are the most recent non-manga images of the characters, again.

(That's part of my reason for wondering about subtitles on Dog Days Dash blu-rays... Nanoha the movie 1st had subs, DD1 had subs, DD' did not... will Nanoha the movie 2nd?  Hopefully...)

That's a good point. I'd forgotten about those.
