You know a site’s navigation is out of whack when 1/6th of the home page is a large, orange “How to use this site” box.

The web site is still in it’s BETA testing stage so there’s still hope that the online editor can make a few improvements with navigation.

TokyoPop is a manga powerhouse. Based in L.A., the mega-publisher prints English-language comics to markets across the world. It has offices throughout Europe and Asia (of course this includes Tokyo). TokyoPop also releases animated DVDs and produces television programs.
