No pun is safe from the Manga Bookshelf crew this week, as they choose from horror at Kodansha Comics, shoujo at Yen Press, and Sean’s continued obsession with Argo the Rat.
SEAN: Ah, second weeks. Always the most unpredictable. Will there be a hidden treasure? Or will the team all pick Magi again by default? Let’s see what we’ve got next week. ASH: Let’s! SEAN: Dark Horse has a 3rd volume of the prequel everyone seems to like better than the original, Fate/Zero. MELINDA: Maybe I […]
SEAN: It’s the first week of October, so time for a BIG PILE O’ VIZ! But first: Dark Horse has the first of what may be several Hatsune Miku manga tie-ins, Mikubon. Seven Seas has a 5th volume of Golden Time, the one that’s not Toradora. Magical Girl Apocalypse 9 continues to prove that kids […]
Are you ready, readers? The manga is soothing and we’ve all started grooving here at Manga Bookshelf, as the team unites and says everyone attack! Pretty Sweet.
SEAN: Duck and cover, folks. Kodansha gives us a 3rd Colossal Edition of Attack on Titan, which no doubt still remains a potent blunt instrument as well as a good way of catching up. ASH: These volumes truly are colossal. SEAN: And a 56th volume of Fairy Tail, which had one of my pairings become […]
This week, the Manga Bookshelf team casts its eye on deluxe license rescues and long-awaited BL volumes.
We make it really easy for you this week – go get this new Fantagraphics hardcover. Now.
There’s a lot of stuff out this week the Manga Bookshelf team loves, but there’s only room for one title at the top.
For the most part, the Manga Bookshelf team tries to avoid giving Pick of the Week to a re-release this week, though Melinda just couldn’t resist the lure of the zodiac.
SEAN: The word for next week is “spinoff”, boys and girls. Can you say spinoff? I knew you could! OK, let’s try to plow through. Dark Horse first, as always. Astro Boy Omnibus 4. Everyone loves Astro Boy. Kodansha gives us the 2nd and final volume of Fairy Tail’s Gray-related spinoff (can you say that, […]
Ash wants to enjoy more surreal childhood from Inio Asano this week, but most of the team are ready to cosplay like there’s no tomorrow.
SEAN: Third weeks of the month: almost like second weeks, but they seem different, mostly as Viz tends to put out its blogger-friendly titles here. What’s happening next week? Kodansha debuts a new seinen series that ran in Morning magazine, which means I am already well-disposed to it. Complex Age features a cosplay fanatic who […]
SEAN: Ah, the 2nd week of the month, the most common week for the Manga Bookshelf team to look over the releases and think “Wow, am I picking Magi as Pick of the Week again?” MICHELLE: Heh. SEAN: Dark Horse has a 2nd volume of Fate/Zero, sure to give us many more heartwarming moments so […]
There’s a large amount of stuff coming out this week. What’s a reader to do? Not to worry. Our crack manga squad is here to help YOU.
SEAN: June is busting out all over, especially in terms of sheer manga volume – this month will be punishing, starting with 25 books out next week. Dark Horse gives us the 4th – and presumably last for now – omnibus of The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service. Go get it if you haven’t already. ASH: […]
