SEAN: Ugh. Let’s just lay it all out as quickly as possible. Cute comments to a minimum, there’s too much stuff!
Kodansha Digital… oof. New series include Lovesick Ellie, another cute Dessert shoujo, and My Brother the Shut-In, which I know nothing about except it runs in Morning Two. I always check out things from Morning Two.
MICHELLE: Yep, both of these are on my “check these out” pile.
ANNA: I’m intrigued but also overwhelmed at all the digital manga I haven’t read yet!
MELINDA: What Anna said.
SEAN: Also from Kodansha digital: All Out!! 3, Beauty Bunny 3, Cosplay Animal 3, DEATHTOPIA 6, Domestic Girlfriend 11, Drowning Love 5, Giant Killing 8, House of the Sun 11, Kounodori: Dr. Stork 6, and Peach Heaven 10. Phew. Cosplay Animal is what I’m interested in most from that pile.
MICHELLE: I’m already getting so far behind on All-Out!! and it’s just getting started!
ASH: It’s amazing how many titles are being released digitally these days, and how quickly, too!
SEAN: Kodansha still releases print as well, believe it or not. There’s Sweetness and Lightning 9, Waiting for Spring 3, and Welcome to the Ballroom 8.
MICHELLE: Aaaaand I’ll need all three of these, as well.
ASH: Sweetness and Lightning is definitely one of my priorities!
SEAN: There must have been a pileup at Seven Seas Interstate Thruway, as there are far more new titles this week than usual, starting with a debut that’s a mouthful: Anti-Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon. This seems to be a done in one omnibus.
Also debuting is Magical Girl Special Ops Asuka, which I think is another in the endless magical girl series for guys with fetishes. Whee.
There’s also continuing series: Devils and Realist 13, Don’t Meddle with My Daughter 2, Hana & Hina After School 3, Plum Crazy! 3, Re: Monster 3, The Seven Princes of the Thousand Year Labyrinth 4 (that’s a final volume), Shomin Sample 7, Tales of Zestria 3, and There’s a Demon Lord on the Floor 4.
ASH: That’s the last volume of Hana & Hina After School, too, I think. I’ll need to pick that up.
SEAN: Vertical Comics has a 5th To The Abandoned Sacred Beasts.
Viz has three titles delayed from the beginning of the month, as we get Anonymous Noise 5 and Idol Dreams 4.
Their debut is SP Baby, a new josei series from the author of Happy Marriage.
ASH: Glad for more josei being released.
ANNA: Unsurprisingly I enjoyed this!!!!
SEAN: And Yen Press still has some more titles. Digitally we see Aphorism 13, Crimson Prince 13, and Sekirei 13 on the manga side, and Accel World 5-8, Irregular at Magic High School 3-4, and The Isolator 1-3 on the light novel side.
The debut light novel is Wolf & Parchment, the sequel to Spice & Wolf.
Debuting on the manga end is ACCA, the newest manga from Ono Natsume, whose middle-aged men have been dearly missed the last couple of years. It runs in Big Gangan.
MICHELLE: Yaaay! I have indeed missed her work.
ASH: I am so excited for this!!
ANNA: I somehow forgot this was happening! But I am also excited!!!!!
SEAN: There’s also a Sword Art Online artbook. I got the Japanese version, and it looks pretty great, let me tell you.
MELINDA: I’m so ready!
SEAN: Ongoing titles include BTOOOM! 19, Danmachi 8 (the manga version), The Isolator 2 (likewise), Karneval omnibus 8, Kiss & White Lily for My Dearest Girl 4, and Spirits & Cat Ears 4.
I think I compressed that as much as humanly possible. Be thankful. What are you getting?
