SEAN: I realize that the rest of the team will be focusing on only one or two titles this week, but honestly, there’s TOO MUCH for me to choose. But since it only comes out once in a blue moon, I will push the others reluctantly aside and cast my vote for the 4th volume of dark fantasy Shoulder-a-Coffin Kuro. If I recall, the 3rd volume ended with us worrying if Kuro would survive past the fourth, so I look forward to seeing how far she makes it.
ASH: The manga I’m probably looking forward to the most (and longest) this week is A New Season of Young Leaves. It takes something special for a school-based BL to catch my attention. In this case it’s the author, Venio Tachibana, whose previous work in English I’ve enjoyed tremendously.
ANNA: Like Michelle, I have to go with Goong. This manhwa has one of the most addictive soapy storylines and the elaborate illustrations of the characters are always lovely to look at. The new volumes can’t come out fast enough for me!
MJ: I’m also interested in A New Season of Young Leaves, but I admit there’s really only one way for me to go this week, and that’s Goong. Goong, Goong, Goong. There aren’t a lot of soapy series I’m following these days, but this one will be a favorite always. And it doesn’t hurt that it is released here in hearty, omnibus-sized chunks. It’s always satisfying, and always lovely to look at. I can’t wait to read more.
What looks good to you this week?
