SEAN: If you want a quiet week with not much manga, next week is pretty much the only week in August you’ll get it, so enjoy.
Kodansha has its 5th Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle omnibus, which I think is busying itself by walking around the X continuity.
ANNA: You know what would be nice? If X/1999 walked around its own continuity and actually had an end to the series. That would be nice!!!!!
SEAN: X Vol. 19: everyone mysteriously vanishes into a hole in the plot except Nokoru, Suoh and Akira, and the series reboots itself as CLAMP Detectives: The Adult Years. With plenty of Utako as well. …OK, perhaps that’s only *my* version of X.
MICHELLE: I fully support this version. My life needs more grown-up Suoh in it.
MJ: I am probably a rare CLAMP fan in that I’m not super-anxious for them to finish X, but I’m not opposed to Sean’s ending here. :D
SEAN: Seven Seas gives us a 2nd volume of angsty coming-of-age story Evergreen, from the Toradora! author.
And a 7th volume of bestselling, anime-producing monster fetish manga Monster Musume. Watch out for snakes.
Sublime hopes you are still embracing the 3rd omnibus of Embracing Love.
ASH: I certainly am! This omnibus includes part of the series that wasn’t previously released in English.
SEAN: Viz gives us the 10th volume of Deadman Wonderland – are they out of prison yet?
And a 15th Itsuwaribito, which is part of the Shonen Sunday imprint! As is…
Magi, which has its lucky 13th volume. Shonen Sunday! It’s an imprint too! You can see it, next to the Jump and Beat titles. Well, sort of next to them. Down the hall. And a stairway. Next to the boiler room. (Buy Sunday titles.)
ANNA: I need to fill in my collection and read more of this series!
MICHELLE: Yay, Magi! And I concur; the Shonen Sunday imprint has a lot of good stuff, like Kekkaishi, Cross Game, and all of the Rumiko Takahashi!
SEAN: Does anything here tickle your fancy?
