SEAN: Sooooo much Viz. So much. Almost every single Viz title I follow has a volume out this week. Oddly, though, absolutely no new title debuts.
Before Viz, though, Kodansha gives us a 2nd volume of Fire Force, which seems to be Soul Eater’s attempt to do Fairy Tail.
Say “I Love You” is ending soon, but I’m not sure if 17 is the final volume or not. We shall see.
MICHELLE: Yeah, I don’t know either.
ASH: This series has been consistently great. I’m glad that Kodansha brought it over.
ANNA: I’m so far behind on this series, I’ve almost given up on getting caught up, but I’m also glad Kodansha brought it over.
SEAN: Seven Seas gives us a 2nd volume of My Pathetic Vampire Life, which I did not enjoy as much as I expected.
And a 2nd Please Tell Me, Galko-chan!, which I enjoyed more than I expected.
ASH: I really enjoyed the first volume, too! It was surprisingly bright and cheery.
SEAN: Titan Comics has been releasing the manga version of Sherlock in pamphlet form over the last year, and now we finally get the first volume collected as A Study in Pink. Assuming there are Sherlock fans left after that last season.
MICHELLE: I liked the middle one!
ANNA: Ah, maybe it will be pleasantly nostalgic?
SEAN: Kitty! A 2nd volume of Fuku Fuku: Kitten Tales from Vertical Comics.
MJ: More kitties are always welcome!
SEAN: And now. Viz. So much Viz. A 14th volume of Assassination Classroom, which is not quite at THAT spoiler yet. Next time.
Black Clover has improved slightly with each volume, to the point that I am prepared to call the 5th volume “pretty good”.
Bleach has an 18th 3-in-1, which I assume is in the middle of some long arc.
Hungry? Good. Food Wars! 16 will make you want to eat (or go to a school festival).
Don’t eat volleyballs, though. But the 8th volume of Haikyu!! should be excellent.
MICHELLE: Very excited about more Food Wars! and Haikyu!!.
ASH: I’m also looking forward to more of both series.
ANNA: Haikyu!! is consistently good.
SEAN: The 3rd arc of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure did not grip me as immediately as the first two. I’m hoping that changes with the 2nd Stardust Crusaders hardcover.
ASH: It’s such a weird series. It almost becomes a travelogue at some points. Granted, a very bloody one with lots of punching and mind games.
SEAN: Kamisama Kiss continues its final arc with its 23rd volume.
ANNA: I’ve got 4 volumes to read to get caught up, but in a way that’s fine because the series is so enjoyable.
SEAN: How will Kuroko’s Basketball’s 4th omnibus deal with the CRUSHING DEFEAT from last time? My guess? Friendship and Training.
MICHELLE: A solid bet.
SEAN: Maid-sama! has Vol. 13-14, which means it’s actually nearly over. I assume Misaki will protest quite a bit throughout.
MICHELLE: It’s kind of hard to believe that we’re actually going to see the conclusion of this one.
SEAN: And a 7th volume of superhero school manga My Hero Academia.
ASH: I’ve really been meaning to read this series; I’ve heard great things about it.
SEAN: Yay! My Love Story!! 11 is here! Please always be adorable.
MICHELLE: Here’s one that’s almost over, too. (Volume thirteen is the end.)
ASH: I continue to love My Love Story!!(!)
ANNA: How could it not be adorable?
SEAN: One Piece’s 81st volume makes me very happy, if only as I don’t have to say Dressrosa anymore. What’s up with Sanji, though?
MICHELLE: Man, you weren’t kidding about nearly everything getting a new volume!
SEAN: So Cute It Hurts!! gets an 11th volume, though the exclamation mark joke’s time has passed.
Toriko is in its final arc with the 37th volume, but I think it’s still got a ways to go.
MICHELLE: Finally, I’m about to embark on reading Toriko!
SEAN: Yona of the Dawn has a 4th volume, and cannot come out fast enough for me.
MICHELLE: I am excite.
ASH: I’m more than ready for my next dose of shoujo epic fantasy!
ANNA: Me too!
SEAN: Lastly, there’s a 9th Yu-Gi-Oh! 3-in-1, because Yu-Gi-Oh will never die.
MJ: Wow, when I see a list like this, it makes me feel like I’m not reading anything at all. I swear I am!
SEAN: What’s keeping you happy in this cold and gloomy February?
