SEAN: It’s a somewhat busy 5th week this time around, with a lot of stuff from Kodansha.
After a brief delay, I believe we now are getting the final volume of Shigeru Mizuki’s epic biography/history Showa next week from Drawn & Quarterly, covering 1953-1989.
ASH: I am so glad this series was translated.
SEAN: Speaking of giant omnibuses, the second COLOSSAL EDITION of Attack on Titan comes out next week. Use it to beat titans to death!
My Little Monster is now in double digits with the 10th volume. I think it’s actually near an ending as well, so things might be slowly trudging towards resolution.
ASH: I still love that there’s a pet chicken. Nagoya should get a series.
MICHELLE: I would read it! But yes, this series sadly only has twelve volumes.
SEAN: The Seven Deadly Sins, which I admit I lost track of, has also reached double digits.
And there’s a third volume of A Silent Voice, which I think could go in any number of directions right now, all interesting.
ASH: A Silent Voice has been very well written so far. I’m curious to see where it goes.
SEAN: Vinland Saga puts out its 6th omnibus, and they have openly said that this is sales-dependent in order to continue. Go buy it.
ASH: Yes, please do! Vinland Saga is such a great series!
ANNA: I am going to buy it, and if I could clone myself and buy it again I would!
SEAN: Seven Seas gives us a 2nd omnibus of Freezing, which is a very very VERY Seven Seas title, for what it’s worth. Fans of those other Seven Seas titles should go buy it right now.
Vertical has another Attack on Titan light novel, with the 2nd volume of Harsh Mistress in the City.
And lastly, Vertical Comics has the 14th volume of Knights of Sidonia. It’s announced it’s ending in Japan soon, will we get a happy ending? Is that even possible for a title like this?
MICHELLE: *makes grabbyhands* Also, it’s ending?! Granted, I’ve not read anything since volume 12, but it didn’t seem like it was winding down at all. Now I am very fretful that everyone is suddenly going to die.
ANNA: That seems like a reasonable fear.
MJ: Oh, this series, this series… seconding Michelle’s grabbyhands.
SEAN: So what appeals to you as the leaves turn to brown?
