The majority of this week’s titles are from Yen Press, and our Manga Bookshelf team has a wide variety of choices they can’t wait for..
SEAN: Does it say something that having only 25 titles out the week of a Yen Press release dump is rather mild now? I keep thinking “it could be worse!”. I think it’s the new normal. There are other publishers, of course. Kodansha Comics gives us a 2nd volume of Real Account, a title with […]
SEAN: Third weeks of the month tend to be grab bag weeks, and this is no exception, but as with most grab bags, there’s always something in there that’s of interest. For those who were eagerly awaiting the new volume of Blood C, I got nothing. But we do have a spinoff from that series, […]
SEAN: It’s a small week, but there’s a few items of interest here, definitely. That said, in terms of the title I’m most intrigued by, it has to be What Is Obscenity?, which I plan on picking up at TCAF, despite the inherent dangers of testing Canadian customs. And then probably reading it while listening […]
SEAN: Glory be! A small week at last! Write this week down in your diary, folks. ASH: Astonishing! MICHELLE: “Glory be” is gonna make me have “The Night Chicago Died” in my head all day! :) SEAN: We start off with Kodansha’s 14th volume of The Seven Deadly Sins, which is at least seven too […]
It’s May, and the Manga Bookshelf team has their sights set on some very pretty titles this week.
SEAN: Let’s face it, there are no light weeks anymore. There’s 21 titles next week, and that’s our new normal. We just have to accept it, manga is popular again. ASH: All right! MICHELLE: Yay! Now, can we have back some of those series that disappeared in less prosperous times? Like Silver Diamond? Please? MELINDA: […]
The team this week is saying farewell to a few old favorites which have reached their final volume.
SEAN: Soooo much manga. Scary… manga is scary. MICHELLE: Holy cow. You aren’t kidding! SEAN: Dark Horse has the 2nd and final Planetes omnibus, and if you haven’t read this series yet I urge you all to do so. It is a treat. ASH: So glad to see the entire series back in print! ANNA: […]
SEAN: There’s a lot of variety out next week. Something from almost every major publisher. Kodansha gives us a fourth volume of L♥DK, everyone’s favorite “what is this thing you call consent?” shoujo romance. MICHELLE: *snerk* SEAN: And Noragami’s monthly release schedule chugs along with lucky Vol. 13. Also reaching Vol. 13 is Say “I […]
SEAN: Technically, this is the smallest week of the month. That does not mean there aren’t a lot of titles, just slightly less than the deluge of the other weeks. I Am A Hero has been a long-awaited title here, and Dark Horse has it. It’s not just a zombie apocalypse manga, it’s a multiple […]
SEAN: This is it, folks. We’ve hit peak manga boom. Every week of next month has at least 15 titles out. All you can do is whimper, really. What’s out next week? Well… Kodansha gives us an 18th volume of Attack on Titan, which is such an obscure title with very few readers. To try […]
Once again this week’s new releases have a broad variety of titles, and the Manga Bookshelf team finds a number of things they love
Though Melinda can’t quite be dragged away from her favorite series wrapping up, the rest of the Manga Bookshelf team is completely on board with this week’s new series debut.
SEAN: It is somewhat sad that with the huge number of manga out towards the end of every month, I can be relieved that there are “only” 33 titles out next week. Let’s plow through them. Dark Horse has a 3rd Astro Boy omnibus. Kodansha has an awful lot of stuff. There’s a 4th volume […]
