I got some random bookmarks in a recent press package from Vertical Inc. One for Apollo’s Song and another for To Terra. I actually read the text on the bookmarks today (because really, who can be bothered to read?) and I caught this delightful gem. The bookmark reads:
To Terra… The hit sci-fi emo manga by shoujo-master Keiko Takemiya.

Also, I wish my hair was emo. Then it’d cut itself.
