MICHELLE: Last week it was hard to choose because of scarcity and this week it’s hard to choose because of abundance. I am very excited about new volumes of many shounen and shoujo favorites from VIZ, and am very tempted in particular to choose volume nineteen of My Hero Academia, but it’s my last chance ever to recommend the charming food manga Sweetness & Lightning, so I think that’ll have to be the one this time.
SEAN: I will therefore leap in and choose My Hero Academia 19 in your place. After the heavy drama and death of the previous arc, it’s nice to step back a bit and have fun, and this volume’s culture festival does just that. That said, you an bet Promised Neverland and Yona of the Dawn are right up there as well.
KATE: My Captain Obvious recommendation is volume 10 of The Promised Neverland, which remains gripping and suspenseful despite the author’s over-reliance on interior monologues to clue the reader into what’s happening. (Seriously, WE GET IT. Emma and Ray are wicked smart and can out-think their enemies.)
ASH: Lots of great manga are being released this week. One that hasn’t been mentioned yet, and one for which I am particularly excited, is the print debut of Classmates: Dou Kyu Sei. I honestly love Asumiko Nakamura’s work, so I’m thrilled to be able to add more of it to my shelves.
ANNA: If Yona of the Dawn is coming out, I can’t bring myself to pick anything else, so Yona for me!
MELINDA: Well, I have to join Ash this week in picking Classmates: Dou Kyu Sei. I read and reviewed this charming volume back in the days of JManga, and I’m thrilled that it’s back and finally getting a print release. Thanks, Seven Seas!
