SEAN: I love Blank Canvas, and have reviewed it. But I’m still going to make Ascendance of a Bookworm my pick, even though J-Novel Club has told me it’s more “for isekai lovers who also like books” than “for book lovers”. I just… reincarnated sickly little girl resolves to make her own paper, so she can make her own books, so she can fulfill her dream of being surrounded by books. That’s hardcore.
ASH: I suspect Ascendance of a Bookworm has a strong chance of being my pick once the print edition is released, but I adore Akiko Higashimura’s work so the debut of Blank Canvas is my choice this week, even considering that new volumes of 10 Dance and Ooku are coming out, too!
MJ: I feel like I’m supposed to be the one who gives the boost to Ooku or 10 Dance (how did I somehow blip over both of those during Manga the Week of??) but I’m also going Blank Canvas this week. Can I ever be forgiven?
ANNA: I’m going to join in on the Blank Canvas love!
