Teaching myself Japanese, the hard way

Well, I'm pretty much done with updating the Kodansha and Shogakukan awards. (At least for this year.) Both now have heavily-revised transliterations & translations, and now include the original Japanese characters, so that at least *something* in each entry is correct, and so that it'll be more obvious to mangaphiles when I've mangled a name or title. So if you're looking for some manga to try next (or bug Viz or Tokyopop to license next), you may be able to get some good ideas from either or both of those lists.

Now to go straighten out the mess that is my Tezuka awards page, using my growing Japanese-English dictionary skillz and Google-fu. Thank goodness there're only 9 years worth of data to go through for that one...
