Welcome to another Manhwa Monday! We’ve got a couple pieces of news and some reviews to look at today.
First, soon-to-be webtoon publisher, iSeeToon has some updates on their licenses, including mention of a new series they are going to try to obtain for release, Unusual Romance… between Serial Killers.
It so happens that I’ve seen some of that series (in Korean), and though the subject matter is certainly dark, it’s pretty compelling stuff, even if you don’t read the language. Check out the iSeeToon blog for more.
Continuing from last week, Matt Blind has posted another round of sales rankings, including a full list of manhwa rankings for the week ending August 22nd. Angel Diary (Yen Press) is still on top for manhwa this week, though U Don’t Know Me (NETCOMICS) has moved up a notch to second place (go Yeri Na!), with the latest volume of Jack Frost (Yen Press) coming up in third.
Speaking of Jack Frost, Otaku no Video has posted a new video review of volume one–kind of a fun way to look at the series.
In other reviews, Michelle Smith goes all out, with a review of volumes 1-5 (the full series) of Sugarholic (Yen Press) at Soliloquy in Blue. She also talks about volume 8 of Moon Boy (Yen Press) in the most recent edition of Off the Shelf, here at Manga Bookshelf. And at Anime Salvation, mouseycou shares a short recommendation for Angel Diary.
That’s all for this week!
