ASH: As usual, there are a few things that I’m looking forward to among this week’s manga releases, but choosing just one as my pick is surprisingly easy this time. The first volume of My Neighbor Seki was an absolute delight, and the second volume should be as well. Sometimes I just need to read a manga that makes me happy, and My Neighbor Seki is one of those series.
MICHELLE: I’m sure that I will love My Neighbor Seki when I read it, but the fact remains that I don’t love it quite yet. What I do love, however, is Shinobu Ohtaka’s Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, so I’m happy to see volume eleven out already!
SEAN: Just a moment, have to get my Tatewaki Kuno mask on… (does so) SEKI?! MAGI?! I CANNOT CHOOSE! I MUST HAVE YOU BOTH!!!!!
ANNA: There’s a bunch coming out this week that’s on my to-read list, like My Neighbor Seki, but I haven’t even read the first volumes yet! Is there a newish volume of One-Punch Man out? I’m going to pick that because tax season makes me want to read about punching.
MJ: Okay, yeah, yeah, I’m into Seki, and I’ll admit I never really got into Junjo Romantica, but despite that (and despite the “scared uke“-style cover, I’m still irresistibly drawn to Shungiku Nakamura’s The World’s Greatest First Love. There’s just something about BL manga set in publishing that lure me in like no other. Definitely my pick this week.
What looks good to you this week?
