        I am so glad Fantagraphics released A Drunken Dream -- and I hope there's more Moto Hagio or other 49'ers work in store in the future. 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!

              The Magnificent 49'ers are a group of female mangaka in Japan that were more or less born around 1949 - many were close friends and shared living quarters while working on their manga. They contributed heavily to shojou manga and I would say revolutionized manga as we know it. In addition to Hagio-sensei, there are quite a number of 49'ers including Takemiya Keiko, Ikeda Riyoko and more...they also created works that were (are!) cutting edge then and now.

              Matt Thorn has a wonderful essay about shojou manga (he has lots of great stuff) that you might enjoy reading: http://www.matt-thorn.com/shoujo_manga/japan_quarterly/index.php

              As the manga are in Japanese, a lot of the 49'ers work are not translated into English or other languages - though you may find much more selections in Spanish and French, I believe.

              Lyn - They were women who were influential in the formational years of shoujo (girls ) manga. Moto Hagio is one of them.
