For the record (and because I'm being asked): I am not an "anime/manga journalist" anymore. This is for two reasons: 1) My oldest freelance writing gig went ka-blooey when Anime Insider was canceled earlier this year, and 2) My current gig as full time PhD student is contingent upon my not taking on any time-consuming outside work. While I liked writing manga reviews and anime previews for Anime News Network, I like my five-figure maintenance grant more. Simple as that.
Of course, I still love writing about manga online on my own time. (Uhh...when I have it, that is...full time PhD student, remember?)
