MICHELLE: I suspect this’ll be another of those weeks where most or all of us say the same thing. So, before I get to the inevitable, I’ll also mention I’m keen to read the second volumes of Knight of the Ice and Somethings’ Wrong with Us, as well favorites like Chihayafuru, Natsume’s Book of Friends, and Yona of the Dawn. But, I mean it’s gotta be Spy x Family. It’s got a really neat concept and comes highly recommended by a friend who’s been reading it on the Shonen Jump app.
KATE: Wait… Natsume’s Book of Friends is still going?! I had no idea! I admit to being really curious to see where the story is twenty-odd volumes into its run, but Michelle is right: Spy x Family is THE manga to read this week.
SEAN: There is a pile of good stuff this week, and Spy x Family is sitting on top of all of it.
ASH: Likewise, Spy x Family gets my official pick this week, but I’m also looking forward to Love Me for Who I Am and the print debut of Sexiled a great deal.
ANNA: Spy x Family for me!!!
MJ: Okay, I’m very much here for Spy x Family and I can’t bear to break the streak. But I also need to shout out to Love Me for Who I Am, which, were it a print release, would blow away any other option with its nonbinary protagonist.

I echo Melinda and Ash. I want Love Me For Who I Am to be a progressive masterwork I can relate to as a Genderqueer person. But in the likely event that that’s not the case, SPY x FAMILY should make for stellar reading.
