Paper and ink shortage
Danny Choo – otaku and popular documenter of anime/manga/character design – reports on his blog about the shortage of ink and paper affecting Japan's magazine industry. Just one of the knock-on effects. Also interesting is his online vote-submission for whether his readers prefer paper or pixels – with 60% prefering paper to only 10% pixels (with 30% going either way). So much for any huge swing to the digital for manga.
