SEAN: There’s really not a lot of literary, “worthy” manga out this week. It’s a load of titles that are the manga equivalent of candy. So I reserve the right to pick one of my favorite guilty pleasures that everyone has abandoned but me – The Wallflower. I expect to see a lot of laughs, some possible incremental advances of romance, and no end in sight. So very, very bad for me. I love it.
MICHELLE: Given that I’m not following anything else being released this week, my pick kind of falls on Say I Love You. by default, but I really am enjoying this series and probably would’ve picked it anyway.
ASH: I’m actually really excited for the eighth volume of No. 6. Things have been getting exceptionally intense (and heartbreaking) as the series approaches its end. Plus, we get a illustration gallery and color pages in this, the penultimate volume!
ANNA: I’ll have to throw in with Michelle, Say I Love You is by far the most interesting manga coming out this week for me.
MJ: I realize this series will seem like a strange choice for me, but I’m going with the second volume of the Sword Art Online novel series. I really enjoy this world and its characters, and it’s nice to read some prose once in a while, even when it’s escapist prose. I’m there, SAO.
What looks good to you this week?

I’m looking forward to No. 6 too. I think the series has been a good performer for Kodansha Comics as the series made it into the top 10 shoujo properties list recently. Hopefully they will be encouraged to license similar series in future.
