SEAN: Ah, second weeks. Always the most unpredictable. Will there be a hidden treasure? Or will the team all pick Magi again by default? Let’s see what we’ve got next week.
SEAN: Dark Horse has a 3rd volume of the prequel everyone seems to like better than the original, Fate/Zero.
MJ: Maybe I should try this.
SEAN: They also have the second omnibus release of zombie favorite I Am A Hero.
ASH: I’m very curious to see the direction the second omnibus takes.
ANNA: I still need to read the first volume.
SEAN: Drawn and Quarterly make me very happy with the second volume in their Kitaro collection, Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon. No, not the one from Shonen Jump.
ASH: I am beyond thrilled that we’re getting more of Kitaro in English!
SEAN: Kodansha has a 5th volume of Maga-Tsuki, which defies my ability to remember anything about it.
And a 16th volume of Say “I Love You”. Will the series be able to survive graduation?
MICHELLE: I am cautiously optimistic.
ASH: As am I.
SEAN: Seven Seas debuts a new series. It’s called How to Build a Dungeon. It has a half-naked woman on the cover. It’s from Comic Valkyrie. It should sell like hotcakes. I would review it but I fear it would burn my flesh if I touched it.
And a 5th Magika Swordsman and Summoner, which is much the same sort of thing.
SuBLime gives us the 5th volume of The World’s Greatest First Love. That’s a lot of hype to live up to.
ASH: I’ll admit, I’m more interested in the series portrayal of the shoujo manga industry than I am in its romance.
SEAN: And Vertical has a 6th Ninja Slayer volume. EXCITING NINJAS!
Viz has reached the 60th volume of Case Closed. I tip my hat to them.
And Magi has its 20th volume, which will hopefully answer the burning question: Where the Hell is Morgiana?
ANNA: Where? What’s happening!!! One day I will get caught up on Magi.
SEAN: Lastly, Viz has a 4th volume of Monster Hunter: Flash Hunter.
Yokai, ninjas, zombies… no vampires, though. What are you getting?
