MICHELLE: Regrettably, I’m not too excited about anything coming out next week. However, I am planning to check out the debut volume of The Heiress and Chauffeur, so I reckon I’ll make that my official pick this week.
SEAN: No question about it, Oresama Teacher is what has me excited this week. Its combination of hilarity, delinquency, and brainwashing (yes, really) has been a must read the last few volumes. Go get it.
ANNA: I also pick The Heiress and Chauffeur. I’m always curious about new shoujo, and the historical setting for this manga sounds appealing.
ASH: It’s a little bit of a cheat for me since my copy arrived last week and I already know how gorgeous it is, but my pick this week is for Takeshi Obata’s artbook blanc et noir. I’ve always enjoyed Obata’s artwork, so having an entire book devoted to it great and Viz has done a fantastic job with it.
MJ: Yes, yes, yes, I gotta go with Ash this week! I own Obata’s gorgeous Hikaru no Go artbook, and I’m incredibly excited about this new one. It’s blanc et noir for me!
