MICHELLE: I’m torn between Wandance and Burn the House Down this week. Sports-adjacent manga versus josei suspense/mystery. I think in the end, Burn the House Down has the edge, because I definitely want to support more genuine manga mysteries making their way into the English-speaking market!
SEAN: I’d feel guilty for picking Kodansha josei THREE weeks in a row, so my pick this week is the 5th volume of Unnamed Memory. The volumes may be super long, but it’s always a relief reading a fantasy novel not filled with anime and gaming cliches.
ASH: Wandance is the debut I’m most likely to read first out of this week’s releases, but it’s not every day that a new imprint is launched, so Steamship is my official pick. (That’s allowable, right?)
ANNA: Count me in for Wandance this week! Also excited to see what else will be coming out from Steamship.
