A little comment for saying that I created a thread for knowing who are the members of the Group, trying to determine them.


Also, I don't think it was announced here, but a new work from Moto Hagio is currently published in English! Otherworld Barbara
With the first volume was published last summer, and the second (and last) one currently announced for the next summer.

I'm okay with adding mangaka who isn't considered a part of the "group".
