MICHELLE: Despite not loving The Wize Wize Beasts of the Wizarding Wizdoms as much as I’d hoped to do, I am still really looking forward to Nagabe’s Love on the Other Side short story collection. Perhaps the inclusion of the word “poignant” on the back cover blurb indicates there will be fewer disturbing stories. Not that disturbing stories are a bad thing, but given the state of the world at present, it’s sweetness that I crave.
SEAN: Not too hard for me: the 2nd volume of A Man and His Cat is definitely my pick this week. I want to see if it can keep up the balance between man and cat.
ANNA: I’m also curious about Nagabe’s Love on the Other Side, so that’s my pick!
KATE: I also have a bad case of A Man and His Cat-scratch fever this week.
ASH: I enjoyed the first volume of A Man and His Cat, and I’m also really looking forward to the next installment of Blank Canvas, but I’m thrilled that more of Nagabe’s work is being released, so my pick this week goes to Love on the Other Side.
MELINDA: I’m ashamed to say I still haven’t read the first volume of A Man and His Cat, so though I’m sure I’d love it, I can really only give my pick to Love on the Other Side. It’s nice to find myself interested in multiple titles this week, though, which has been happening less and less often.
