      They were women who were influential in the formational years of "shoujo" (girls') manga. Moto Hagio is one of them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_24_Group


      Cheers,

I have a copy of it that includes a signed bookplate and this is the holiday gift I am giving to everyone on my list. And now that you have mentioned a copy for your local library, I will also donate a copy to my local library, too. Thanks for the suggestion!

Not only does it have some magnificent work by a master of the craft, it's got some pretty candid insights into the mind of that master. And how often can you say you want to HUG a member of the "Magnificent 49ers?" (The nickname for the women who were largely responsible for the creation of shoujo, josei and BL as we know it.)
