SEAN: The fields are full of dancing, full of singing and romancing, cause the manga never stops.
Dark Horse has a 6th omnibus of Oh My Goddess!, the only title to rival Dragon Ball for most re-releases.
J-Novel Club finishes up the 3rd volume of The Faraway Paladin, which was large enough to be split into two books, and this is the second.
ASH: I’m really hoping that Seven Seas might consider teaming up with J-Novel Club for a print release of The Faraway Paladin like they’ve done for other titles.
SEAN: Kodansha Digital is truckin’ like the doo-dah man. We start with a 3rd Aoba-kun’s Confessions.
MICHELLE: I am beginning to sense a trend with these musical references…
SEAN: As the Gods Will’s 2nd Series (the first, which I will always mention, was never license) has a 21st volume.
Chihayafuru’s 5th volume makes me feel guilty I haven’t finished the 4th yet.
ANNA: Double Yay here!
SEAN: Clockwork Planet has a 5th manga volume, and it’s also in print, novelty though that be.
Also in print is a 6th Fire Force.
Back to digital, we have the 2nd Magical Sempai, reminding us that honorific use in translation is still a hot button issue.
And there’s an 8th Real Account.
On to Seven Seas, who have the 3rd print edition of Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash’s light novels, previously released digitally by J-Novel Club.
They also have a 5th Lord Marksman and Vanadis.
The debut next week is Spirit Circle, a new shonen title from the creator of Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer. It’s a story of ghosts and reincarnation, and ran in Shonen Gahosha’s Young King Ours. It also had a Crunchyroll digital release.
ASH: I’m looking forward to giving this one a try! Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer was such an odd series, but I rather liked it.
SEAN: SuBLime gives us a 3rd deluxe edition of Finder.
And an 8th World’s Greatest First Love.
Titan has collected a 2nd volume of its Sherlock manga adaptation that runs in Japan. Sherlock: The Blind Banker is out next week.
ANNA: We’ve picked these up at my library, and I think they circulate well.
SEAN: Vertical has a 10th volume of Ajin. Happy double digits!
Case Closed reaches Vol. 64. If we convert to Base 10, it’s reached 100 volumes!
Gangsta has a 3rd volume of its Cursed spinoff.
ASH: I hope to see more of the main series, but the spinoff is likewise compelling and incredibly dark.
ANNA: This reminds me that I bought the first two volumes of this series. Need to get caught up ASAP!
SEAN: Viz is also releasing a novel. Juni Taisen: Zodiac War is written by Nisioisin, creator of the Monogatari and Zaregoto series, and has illustrations by Hikaru Nakamura, creator of Saint Young Men. It also has an anime that just began. Its subtitle is its premise, from what I understand.
ASH: My curiosity is certainly piqued based on the creators involved.
MJ: I have to admit that “Saint Young Men” is the first thing on the list this week that has caught my eye at all. So yes, I’m in for something illustrated by Hikaru Nakamura.
SEAN: And a 26th volume of Magi involves a lot of fighting, I expect.
MICHELLE: At least the flashback is over!
SEAN: Lastly, more double digits boasting, as Monster Hunter: Flash Hunter reached that milestone.
This stack of manga has everything delightful and everything you need. What are you getting from it?
