SEAN: My Pick of the Week is obvious to anyone who reads this site at all. It is Excel Saga. The final Excel Saga. You should all BASK IN ITS GLORY! BOW, FOOLISH MORTALS! BOW TO THE FINAL VOLUME OF EXCEL SAGA!
MICHELLE: Huh. I somehow feel this strange compulsion to choose Excel Saga. Weird. Anyway, my pick of the week is Excel Saga. No, wait, I meant to say NightS. Quite frankly, I don’t really know what it’s about, but I liked Kou Yoneda’s No Touching At All so much that I’m willing to bet it’ll be good.
ANNA: Actually there isn’t much that really excites me this week, but I recently went to my public library and picked up a ton of manga! So my pick of the week is the manga selection at your local public library!
ASH: Public library manga are always a great choice! But I think I’m with Michelle this week. The manga I’m most looking forward to is NightS. I really enjoy Kou Yoneda’s work, so I’m happy to see more of it being released in English. Though, I guess there’s some manga called Excel Saga being released this week, too?
MJ: In reality, I’m most likely with Michelle and Ash. I’ll be picking up NightS for sure. But in the interest of extending Sean’s giddy mood for at least another day, I’ll say only this: Save a manga critic. Buy Excel Saga.

Heeey, know what’s been coming out every week since December? Firefighter Daigo of Company M, that’s what! I can’t stress enough how much I love this series (in fact, almost every instance of this series on this website has been mentioned by me in a comment), and I know at least some of you do digital, so pick up a couple volumes and get hooked! Then pick up the rest! You’re lucky there’s only a one week wait period between volumes because they generally end on “must read more!” cliffhangers, the sort that ends with you reading 6+ volumes in a sitting without even meaning to.

Yeah, we should really do a ‘favorite older series now out digitally’ post among the group, if only so I can rave about Here Is Greenwood.
