Announcing the 2010 Great Manga Gift Guide

Last year, in response to the New York Times releasing a Graphic Novel Gift Guide that featured absolutely no manga at all, David Welsh of  The Manga Curmudgeon and Erica Friedman of Ozaku started the Great Manga Gift Guide in order to help out shoppers looking to buy gifts for manga fans. Tons of bloggers participated and shared their picks for the best manga gifts on the market. (Because, seriously, what is up with NOT including manga in your holiday gift guide?! Kids love it!)

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday around the corner, this is the perfect time to start preparing for the intense holiday shopping season. But just in case you find yourself busy with (American) Thanksgiving, Hanukah or a myriad of holiday parties and activities, the Great Manga Gift Guide will be running from now until December 15th, plenty of time to peruse the guides or post one of your own. Everyone is welcome to participate and post about the manga, anime and other otaku hobbies that don’t get mentioned in mainstream media gift guides!

This year, Erica Friedman starts us off with a Great Yuri Anime Gift Guide (a yuri manga gift guide is forthcoming).
