SEAN: Now that July 4th has come and gone and terrified all our dogs, what manga do we have to soothe us?
MICHELLE: My big tabby is also not a fan.
MELINDA: My cats are fine, but I’m traumatized.
SEAN: Airship, in print, has Hello World, a sci-fi one shot with a “fix your past to stop a tragic death” plot. Given Seven Seas also published orange, there’s a lot of this going around.
ASH: I did like orange, so I’m far from opposed to this particular premise.
ANNA: Somewhere I have the first volume of orange, unread.
SEAN: Also in print, Airship has Berserk of Gluttony 3.
Digitally, we get the 12th volume of Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation.
Denpa lists a debut on its website for next week: Lil’ Leo (Reo-kun). This one-shot cat manga is by Moto Hagio, famous for They Were Eleven, The Poe Clan, Otherworld Barbara, etc. This is about a cat who decides to go to school one day like the neighbor kid, then subsequently finds there’s nothing he can’t do. It ran in Flowers.
ASH: I’m really looking forward to this one.
MELINDA: Moto Hagio and cats. What’s not to love?
SEAN: It’s a quiet week for J-Novel Club, as we have only Black Summoner 5 and Seirei Gensouki: Spirit Chronicles 15.
In print, Kodansha has Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card 9, Heaven’s Design Team 5, Toppu GP 5, and Yuri Is My Job! 7.
The digital debut is In the Clear Moonlit Dusk (Uruwashi no Yoi no Tsuki), a Dessert series from the creator of Daytime Shooting Star. The cover reminds me a bit of I Hate You More than Anyone!, and is about a “school prince” – female – meeting the other “school prince” – male.
MICHELLE: Looks fun!
ASH: It really could be!
ANNA: I really liked Daytime Shooting Star. so I’m curious about this.
SEAN: We also get Ace of the Diamond 33, ASHIDAKA – The Iron Hero 3, Cells at Work: Baby! 3, The Dawn of the Witch 3, Giant Killing 24, Police in a Pod 2, Shaman King: Marcos 2, The Springtime of My Life Began with You 3, Tokyo Revengers 21, and the 6th and final volume of Vampire Dormitory.
MICHELLE: I really have to get caught up on Ace of the Diamond and Giant Killing. I like both a lot.
SEAN: Two debuts for Seven Seas. The Invincible Shovel (Scoop Musou: “Scoop Hadouhou!” (｀・ω・´)♂〓〓〓〓★(゜Д゜ ;;) .:∴DOGOoo) is the manga adaptation of the comedy light novel, and features shovels. So many shovels.
ASH: That title is kind of amazing.
ANNA: I don’t know what to think about anything anymore.
SEAN: The other is Mars Red, a manga from Comic Garden that had an anime recently, about a young reporter who meets a friend of hers who a) died years ago, and b) is now part of a vampire A-Team.
Also from Seven Seas: Gal Gohan 8 and The Hidden Dungeon Only I Can Enter 3.
Square Enix has a 4th volume of Soul Eater: The Perfect Edition.
SuBLime has a debut. Bad Boys, Happy Home (Dousei Yankee Akamatsu Seven) ran in Akita Shoten’s Kachi Comi, and features a high school punk who regularly picks fights with a homeless man… then, when the homeless man is kicked from where he normally sleeps, the punk offers up his own home!
ASH: I’ll admit, I’m curious.
SEAN: Viz Media gives us, at long last, the final 40th volume of RIN-NE. I admit I long since stopped reading this, but I hope everything works out for the dumb guy and the somewhat stoic girl who (presumably) loves him.
MICHELLE: I didn’t hate RIN-NE, but it’s true that nothing of consequence ever seems to happen.
SEAN: Viz also has Case Closed 79, Fly Me to the Moon 6, and Splatoon: Squid Kids Comedy Show 4.
Yen On has Goblin Slayer Side Story II: Dai Katana 2. They’ve also got a paperback reissue of The Miracles of the Namiya General Store.
ASH: I’m still happy that The Miracles of the Namiya General Store was translated.
SEAN: Yen Press debuts The Maid I Hired Recently Is Mysterious (Saikin Yatotta Maid ga Ayashii), a Gangan Joker title about a maid that teases the young boy who is her charge. Gonna be honest, this is by the author of Breasts Are My Favorite Things in the World!, and I hated that, so…
MELINDA: Yen Press staying on brand, I see.
