There’s quite a bit to choose from this week in new manga, but the Battle Robot lines up for a combination of new seinen and older shounen—especially favoring omnibus re-releases. What looks good to you this week?
SEAN: There’s a lot of new titles here next week, so it’s a great one if you want to start off a series. Even if two of those are spinoffs of an already existing series. And one is a re-release omnibus. Details, details! I honestly keep forgetting Drifters exists. It’s one of those manga titles […]
There’s a lot to choose from in new manga this week, but the Battle Robot narrows its picks fairly easily down to just three. What looks good to you this week?
SEAN: Sooooo much stuff. Let’s break it down. Oh, and apologies for last week, the date of Wallflower 32 got shoved back to May after I’d written the post. This is the danger of last minute date-changes. I will discuss it in May, and no doubt Michelle will have the same “it’s still going?” reaction. […]
It may be a slowish week for new manga releases, but the Battle Robot can barely contain its enthusiasm for this week’s upcoming debut from Vertical. What looks good to you this week?
SEAN: This is a very small end of the month, which is good, as it gives me time to pick out two titles I forgot to mention last week, and one digital only title that made its big debut this Tuesday. Dark Horse has Blood Blockade Battlefront 5 and Blood-C 3 coming out this week, […]
It’s another good week for new manga, but the Battle Robot finds it surprisingly easy to narrow their picks down to only two! What looks good to you this week?
SEAN: Third week of the month is pretty hefty this month thanks to Yen Press’s pile o’ stuff, plus a few titles from everyone else. Kodansha brings us the 13th volume of Cage of Eden. The series has now ended in Japan, so we know there will be 21 total. That still leaves us many […]
The selection is bountiful this week for fans of new manga, and the Battle Robot has difficulty narrowing its choices down to just one each—sometimes failing entirely. What looks good to you this week?
SEAN: Assuming that you are able to get out of your house and are not snowed in, there’s a lot to like in this 2nd week of February. Does anyone here remember Hey! Class President from DMP? Vol. 3 came out back in September 2010. Well, here’s Vol. 4, despite the fact that he surely […]
The first week of the month is chock full, as usual, and though one Viz re-release succeeds in charming the Battle Robot, smaller publisher Seven Seas makes an unusually strong showing in this week’s picks. What looks good to you this week?
SEAN: Hey, for a first week of the month, this isn’t too bad! It’s under 20 titles! That’s practically nothing! Kodansha brings us the 30th volume of Air Gear, which I haven’t read in about 27 volumes, but I seem to recall this may be around the point that they introduced President Obama as a […]
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 […]
