SEAN: This week’s pick for me is the new Ryukishi07 adaptation, Rose Guns Days Season 1. This is *not* a When They Cry release, so there’s less emphasis on death and horror. It takes place in an AU 1947 Japan, where various disasters have led to most of Japan being occupied by America and China, with Japanese as second-class citizens. It’s also an excuse for a lot of punching and some fun dialogue.
MICHELLE: I think I’ll go for Chocolate Cosmos this time. It’s not that Cactus’s Secret was crazy amazing, but I don’t recall it being awful either. Plus, I’m generally up for new shoujo debuts!
ASH: The newest volume of My Neighbor Seki gets my pick this week, which seems appropriate as it’s school season here in the US. My Neighbor Seki is just such a delightful and charming manga. I’m glad that Vertical ultimately decided to release the entire series.
MJ: I don’t have an extremely solid pick this week, but I’ll tentatively join Michelle in looking towards Chocolate Cosmos. I’m always interested in new shoujo, and chocolate, even simply as a *word* holds magical power over my soul. So there you are.
ANNA: I’m going to join with MJand Michelle in picking Chocolate Cosmos. I’m always curious to check out a new shoujo series.
What looks good to you this week?
