SEAN: In between two fairly hefty weeks, we have a low number of titles out this week. Let’s take them one by one.
Kodansha has a 6th volume of its shonen fantasy The Seven Deadly Sins.
Vertical has a debut I’ve been waiting for ever since it was announced: My Neighbor Seki, from Media Factory’s Comic Flapper. The story of a girl who is constantly distracted in class by her next-desk neighbor’s attempts to… well, revealing more would spoil the surprise. It’s been nominated for awards, it’s had an anime, and it is really, really funny. Absolutely one to watch out for.
ASH: I’ve been really looking forward to this debut! The anime adaptation was absolutely delightful.
MICHELLE: I didn’t have this on my radar at all and then Vertical kindly sent me a copy. Researching it yielded cautious optimism and now I’m downright eager.
MJ: I am so ready for this.
ANNA: I also didn’t have this on my radar before, but it sounds interesting!
SEAN: Lastly, there’s a 53rd volume of Case Closed, and Shinichi… sorry, Jimmy… is still a kid.
MICHELLE: I have occasionally dabbled in Case Closed and found it entertaining enough, but I just can’t get excited about it.
SEAN: What (Seki) will you be buying (Seki) next week? (hint: Seki.)

If the manga is as much fun as the anime it will be the bestest thing ever.

I’m not sure (Seki) what I’ll be buying (Seki) from this group (Seki)…
In all seriousness, I really enjoyed the anime so I’ve been looking forward to this release.
