Remember our pet kabuto-mushi? He's now safe and sound on a tree near the peak of Mt. Takao, where we released him last weekend.
We just found out this morning that Yokai Attack is going into a sixth printing, thanks to all of your support. The sequel, Ninja Attack, is due out in America next month -- we'll be throwing some shuriken of info your way when we get closer to the release date.
And: despite being written entirely in English, Ninja Attack has been getting some great press in Japan, where people remain astounded at the overseas popularity of this otherwise rather obscure aspect of their culture. RocketNews24 interviewed us the other day, and if you understand Japanese you can tune in to a segment I recorded with Tomohiro Machiyama for the TBS radio show Kira Kira. ("Many Americans think ninja can disappear and blow fire from their mouths," gravely explained Machiyama by way of introduction.)
