Mangas en français - les liens
Well of course I'm not the last word on the subject at hand. I
don't want to get stuck maintaining a comprehensive set of links -
basically a hopeless task, as things drift around the net - but
here are at least a few you may want to take a look at. If want to
see any of these pages translated by Babelfish, select the
translation of your choice from the form at the bottom of the page
before following the link. (Yes, it'll mess up this page, but
that's half the fun.)

Animint (French and (some) English) No, I'm not quite sure what
the name's supposed to mean either, but they have tons of
information on both French and Japanese manga and anime, scripts,
shopping info, etc.
Namida "Naoki Haga"s web site (French and English) A lot of
info on Japanese and French anime and manga that you won't find
anywhere else. Plus mah-jongg (his current obsession).

- MangaWeb (French and (a little) English) Various info
and odds and ends concerned with French manga.
- [Anime Showcase - Columns: French Manga
for English Speakers ] (English) An overview from a
Montreal perspective. Alas, it looks like the animeshowcase.com web

columns seem to be gone. Sorry about that!

manga (and anime) in English translation.

Italian entry. The Italian market seems pretty lively, almost as

link in at some point.

relevant categories here.
