ASH: It’s the first week of the new year and I’m already behind! So many great manga were released last year and it seems that trend will continue this year as well. For me the debut that’s caught my eye this week is Kakuriyo: Bed & Breakfast for Spirits. A yokai and food manga? There’s no way I could resist.
SEAN: I’m interested in that as well, and also new volumes of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War and One-Punch Man. But after a humdinger of a volume last time, I’m going to be picking up The Water Dragon’s Bride the moment I get it, so that’s my pick this week!
MICHELLE: Yes, yes, yes! The Water Dragon’s Bride has always been good, but volume seven was especially so and even thinking of one particular moment gives me geekbumps. Can’t wait for volume eight!
KATE: I’m still excavating my pile of unread manga, too! If I had to choose something — and death was not an option — my pick would go to the third volume of Dr. STONE, an awesomely silly Shonen Jump title with a hero so dumb he makes a ham sandwich look good by comparison. I know, I know — I’m not doing a good job of selling it — but it’s a fine bit of escapism if you need it. Lord knows I do!
MJ: I’m firmly with Ash this week, since basically everything about Kakuriyo: Bed & Breakfast for Spirits sounds like my kind of manga. Count me in for this!
ANNA: I’m interested in Kakuriyo: Bed & Breakfast for Spirits, but I’m so invested in the complex story of Water Dragon’s Bride, that it has the edge. That’s my pick!
