MICHELLE: I’m a bit torn for my pick this week. Waiting for Spring is a shoujo debut I’ll be checking out, but it’s an unknown quantity. I’ve been burned before, so I think I’ll play it safe this week and go with Princess Jellyfish.
SEAN: I think I’ll play it safe too, because nothing makes me happier this week – in fact, I reviewed it already so it’s already made me happy – than the new Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun.
KATE: I’m torn between the compulsively readable Princess Jellyfish and The Hound and Other Stories. Although I’ve never been especially interested in H.P. Lovecraft’s writing, I do have a soft spot for horror manga. A quick glance at the preview suggests that Gou Tanabe’s artwork is crisp and atmospheric, so I’m leaning ever-so-slightly towards Hound for my pick of the week.
ASH: I’ll definitely want to read the next volumes of Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun and Princess Jellyfish as soon as I get my hands on them, but like Kate The Hound and Other Stories is what gets my official pick this week! (I tend to enjoy well-drawn horror manga.)
ANNA: New series are always something to celebrate, but I remember being totally amazed that Princess Jellyfish was licensed! Happy about the latest volume!
