MICHELLE: Even though I must admit that I haven’t gotten around to reading volume one of Master Keaton yet, I’m still gonna pick volume two this week, because Naoki Urasawa is involved and I like his stuff.
ASH: Another week, another batch of interesting manga. But I’ll admit, the release that I’m most curious about technically isn’t manga. Fumio Obata is an artist who was born and raised in Japan but who currently lives and works in the United Kingdom. I believe Just So Happens may be his first North American release, but the pages I’ve seen of it are beautiful.
SEAN: I’m fairly uninspired for this week, but will go for the third volume of Kokoro Connect from Seven Seas. The first two volumes impressed me in their realistic look at teenage hangups and worries, but the third takes a decidedly darker turn, and I was really surprised. Manga that surprise the reader these days should be cherished.
ANNA: I’ll also have to pick the second volume of Master Keaton. I’m hoping to dig into it this week!
MJ: I’m on board for Master Keaton and I admit a little curiosity regarding Servamp, but I think I’m with Ash this week. Just so Happens sounds pretty terrific.
