What a fantastic product idea. To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Shonen Sunday comic magazine the company is releasing a huge line of manga post-it notes. They look exactly like the classic manga series they're meant to represent, only all text is removed and each page can be pulled off like a post-it note. This lets you write notes for yourself, friends, and coworkers in the speech bubbles. The notes written on the Kininaru episode where I saw this were hilarious; including a muscle-bound, tragic Fist of the North Star scene with the text, "Tomo, would you like to get lunch today?" I hope this becomes a permanent product rather than just an anniversary one.
