SEAN: I fear that the sheer amount of stuff out this week is making my eyes glaze over. That said, there are two “based on a light novel I enjoy” series out this week, so my co-pick goes to the debuts of I Want to Be a Receptionist in This Magical World and Secrets of the Silent Witch.
MICHELLE: I think The Summer Hikaru Died gets my vote here, and not only because my reply to Sean’s “The Night Chicago Died” joke just made me laugh again with how dumb it is.
KATE: I agree with Michelle: my vote goes to The Summer Hikaru Died, if only to encourage publishers to license horror titles by authors who are not Junji Ito.
ASH: As much as I like Junji Ito’s work, I do like seeing a wider variety of horror manga being released, too. And a BL-adjacent horror manga? I can’t pass up The Summer Hikaru Died.
