I guess it's me then. In the 10-20 years where I largely wasn't paying that close attention (I'd only get a few things from older creators whose names I recognized), everything about the manga market changed, starting with abandoning the floppy format altogether in favor of straight-to-tankobon releases, and a huge shift in the overall content. Once they got out of the comic shops into the bookstores and online, they were free to cater to an entirely new audience (and one mostly taking its cues from anime fandom). When I stopped following it closely, most manga being published was shonen or seinen manga... I don't think that's the case any more, or maybe it just isn't recognizable to me as such. That being the case, most manga published today is not for people like me at all. Basically the teenage girl audience seems to have taken over at some point, although they may be ageing out now. In addition to that, art styles have changed radically in that same time. Sometimes I take a chance and get lucky, other times not. There's a few things I'm reading now which I never would have read in the 80s or 90s, had they existed then. I still say the Diamond solicitation copy is fairly useless if you're not already familiar with the creators or the manga (or anime) in question, though. I did miss at least a few good series during that time that I've subsequently identified. I never seem to see the ones I'm looking for offered as complete runs, though.
