To report only that Heisei Ghostbusters is still tough and still wordy, but not nearly as tough and wordy as Okano's Onmyouji which covers the same territory; that Youmi Henjou 4 is reported by Japanese readers to be as obscure as later Onmyouji, which is midnight obscure; that the brush writing of Youmi Henjou (all of it, but 2 at the moment) makes me wonder if I'm reading the actual words correctly; that this Kouring series of Okano's is dear God The Forgotten Beasts of Eld manga-ized: my spirit faints within me at the thought of what so innately perverse a mangaka has done with what I recall as a fairly yang-type story; and that, ray of sunshine maybe, Sumeragi Natsuki has been translated into French.
