ASH: It’s another good week for manga releases (granted, I think just about every week is a good week), but there are two manga that I’m particularly interested in this time around–the fifth volume in Hinoki Kino’s manga adaptation of No. 6 and the first volume of Kohske’s Gangsta. No. 6 keeps getting better with each volume so I’m looking forward to reading the next installment, but I think my official pick of the week will have to go to Gangsta‘s debut.
MICHELLE: This is ordinarily the spot where I’d be all “Pandora Hearts!,” and I am still looking forward to volume twenty, but since I haven’t had a chance to mention it in a while, this week I’m going with Blood Lad, my official “Surprise Favorite of 2013.” Some elements of the series aren’t really my thing, but its sense of humor is, and I’m glad we’re finally getting a bit more of it!
SEAN: I’ll be brief: Gangsta for me as well!
ANNA: I’m going to have to go for Gangsta too. It certainly looks like the most intriguing manga coming out this week.
MJ: I’m certainly interested in Gangsta, but I’m going to stand in solidarity with Michelle here, and proclaim my love for Blood Lad! I feel a little guilty about forsaking my beloved Pandora Hearts, but Blood Lad was such a stunning surprise for me, I can’t help but rejoice that we’re finally seeing the next chunky volume! I really can’t wait to read it.
What looks good to you this week?

It ain’t on y’all’s list but he first volume of Onepunch Man came out today. Right now it’s digital only but I suspect Viz are going to put out some sort of delux print edition in the future.
I highly recommend it.

Good point! One-Punch Man is fantastic. I really hope that it gets a physical release as well.
