SEAN: There’s a lot. Far, far too much. Railgun. Two SAO books. Intriguing debuts galore. Some of Viz’s most critically acclaimed series. Really, we are totally spoiled for choice here. I’ll go with the debut novel of Log Horizon, though. The manga was OK, but felt (as many adaptations do) like something that only readers of the original book would appreciate. I look forward to getting lost in yet another game world.
ASH: Oh, this is a tough week to choose! With so many great releases, it’s difficult to pick just one. In the end, I think I’ll go with Gyo. I’m always happy to see more of Junji Ito’s manga released (or in this case re-released) and the new deluxe edition should look great next to my copy Uzumaki.
ANNA: There’s plenty of manga coming out this week, but I have to go with the latest VizBig volume of Vagabond. That’s first on my to-buy list!
MJ: Okay, I’m definitely interested in all the SAO stuff coming out this week, but I gotta admit that the thing drawing me most strongly is the call of Zero-Sum. That is to say, Clay Lord: Master of Golems, gimme, gimme. The premise is a little questionable, in terms of my personal taste, but I need to see it to find out. That magazine pretty much has my number, and there’s no denying it.
What looks good to you this week?
