SEAN: I feel a bit guilty for not picking One Piece 100, but I’ve gotten really far behind with it. I’ll go to the light novel well again and pick Though I Am an Inept Villainess: Tale of the Butterfly-Rat Body Swap in the Maiden Court. It sounds like what might happen if My Next Life As a Villainess was set in The Apothecary Diaries, and I’m down for that.
MICHELLE: Yeah, I made it through volume 92 and then sort of stalled out. I’ll choose fluffy BL isekai this week with The Other World’s Books Depend on the Bean Counter. Yes, there’s a josei debut this week, but it looks like it will probably be sad and my brain is just not here for that.
ASH: Novel-wise, I’m really looking forward to reading Tower of the Sun, having greatly enjoyed Tomihiko Morimi’s other works in translation. As for manga, The Girl From the Other Side: Siúil, a Rún is such a beautifully illustrated and haunting series, I’m so glad to see it getting a deluxe treatment.
ANNA: I’ll go with Our Love Doesn’t Need a Happy Ending, even though it might be depressing because hooray for josei.
MELINDA: It’s not a stellar week for me, but I’m low-key interested in The Other World’s Books Depend on the Bean Counter, so I’ll go along with Michelle’s pick this week. When all else fails, I defer to Michelle. She’s yet to lead me astray.
