SEAN: The third week of January has the most variety. What’s in it? Well…
Dark Horse gives us a 2nd volume of Wandering Island.
ASH: Oh, excellent! The first volume was lovely.
SEAN: Ghost Ship has more ecchi monsters with a 6th volume of Yokai Girls.
J-Novel Club revs it up after a brief winter break, with Amagi Brilliant Park 3, Demon King Daimaou 9, and Infinite Dendrogram 8.
Kodansha, in print news, has the 9th Clockwork Planet, the 5th Golosseum, the 11th Sweetness and Lightning, and a 2nd volume of Die Wergelder. There’s also Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches 17-18 – seems to be omnibuses now, after a long break.
MICHELLE: Hooray for more Sweetness & Lightning!
ASH: Yes, Sweetness & Lightning is a delight! I’ll also admit that I’m looking forward to the next volume of Die Wergelder in all its violent, pulpy glory.
MELINDA: I feel like I need to check out Sweetness & Lightning if both Ash and Michelle are such fans.
SEAN: Digitally we see Back Street Girls 7, Kira-kun Today 3, A Kiss For Real 6, Shojo FIGHT! 6, and Tokyo Revengers 3. I know which one of those Manga Bookshelf wants.
MICHELLE: Yep, though I also intend to read A Kiss for Real at some point.
ANNA: One of these days I will get caught up on Shojo FIGHT!.
SEAN: Seven Seas gives us, finally, the 2nd No Game No Life manga, which was delayed for years in Japan. There’s also a 5th Please Tell Me, Galko-chan!.
Udon has the 9th Persona 9… erm, Persona 4.
Vertical hits us with the 2nd APOSIMZ, and a 10th Mobile Suit Gundam Wing.
Lastly, Viz puts out its “cool person” titles, as we see Children of the Whales 8, Dead Dead Demon’s Dededede Destruction 4, Fire Punch 5, and Ultraman 11.
ANNA: Looking forward to Dead Dead Demon’s Dededede Destruction.
SEAN: I’m interested in quite a bit of that. How about you?
MICHELLE: A more modest amount, methinks.
