SEAN: Next week is the last week of the month, and as ever this means few titles arrive (unless you get stuff from Diamond – all this week’s missing stuff is arriving next week). But not without worthy things to discuss.
Dark Horse really hit on a winner when they licensed Gantz from Shueisha (leaving aside the amazing fact that they licensed something from Shueisha and were not named Viz). It’s been a consistent seller for them, particularly among the ‘comic shop buyer’ fan. And now it’s hit Vol. 30.
MICHELLE: Wow, I had no idea Gantz went on for so long.
ASH: Yup, it ended last year in Japan with thirty-seven volumes. It’s been quite a while since I’ve actually read any of the series, though.
SEAN: DMP’s Deflower the Boss seems like one of those BL titles that I’d expect to do quite well simply due to the title alone. Also, just by giving you the title, you can likely guess the plot. I’m hoping it’s at least fun and silly.
MELINDA: What she said.
SEAN: Lastly, Kodansha’s Attack on Titan finishes its speed-up with Vol. 11. It now lines up with Japan, meaning we’ll see Vol. 12 in April. That said, get a Crunchyroll subscription and you can read right up to this month’s magazine chapter.
ASH: I’ve gotten so used to new volumes of Attack on Titan coming out every month that April now seems to be very far away.
SEAN: What manga are you deflowering this week?
