Welcome to another Manhwa Monday!
It’s been a slow week in manhwa news. And by “slow week” I mean that there are absolutely no bits of news or reviews to share with you at all.
So, what shall we talk about, readers? This week’s upcoming release of the latest volume of Bride of the Water God reminds me just how little new manhwa we’ve got to look forward to in the foreseeable future.
What I do have ahead of me, though, are a few fantastic reads and re-reads that are long overdue. A few reads upcoming for me:
1. Bride of the Water God (Dark Horse) – I actually have yet to dip into this series, which is long overdue. I’ll be marathoning it in the next couple of weeks (with a review of volume 6 upcoming), in hopes of soon acquiring this week’s new volume.
2. Cynical Orange (Yen Press) – After a long, long wait, I’ve finally gotten a copy of the one volume I was missing of this series. Look for a full series review in the near future (most likely offsite).
3. One Thousand and One Nights (Yen Press) – I’ve already talked on and on about this series, but an upcoming offsite feature has given me the excuse to reread it once again!
4. Milkyway Hitchhiking (Yen Press) – As a big fan of Sirial’s One Fine Day (interestingly featured in a recent column on Manga Bookshelf), I’m definitely looking forward to this new, cat-themed series.
So, readers, I put the question to you: What new (or old) manhwa are looking forward to reading in the near future?

I’ve got such a pile of manhwa I want to get to! I have 4 volumes of Bride of the Water God, 5 volumes of Legend, 2 omnibus of Goong to catch up on, and 2 volumes of In the Starlight. That just want I can see from my desk.
I read the first chapter of Milky Way Hitchhiking. It’s cute. I’ll have my Yen Plus review later this week with it in it.

I need to take a few minutes to log into Yen Plus so I can check out Milkyway!

BRIDE OF THE WATER GOD!!!! So happy to be getting a new volume. It makes me almost forget about Sarasah’s limbo.
