SEAN: This week’s Manga the Week of comes to you live from Stanfield International Airport in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
We start off with J-Novel Club, who have new volumes of An Archdemon’s Dilemma (7) and Der Werwolf (5).
Kodansha’s print volumes include Attack on Titan: Before the Fall 17, Kiss Me at the Stroke of Midnight 9, L*DK 13, and Witch Hat Atelier 3.
ANNA: I love Witch Hat Atelier!
ASH: It really is such a lovely manga.
SEAN: The digital debut next week is Atsumori-kun’s Bride-to-Be (Atsumori-kun no Oyome-san (←Mitei)), a shoujo/josei series from Dessert. The author has also done House of the Sun. Country girl chases after a guy she likes by moving to Tokyo.
MICHELLE: I was looking at this earlier. It looks somewhat cuter than some of their shoujo fare, so I will probably check it out.
SEAN: And we get Domestic Girlfriend 20, Elegant Yokai Apartment Life 16, and My Boy in Blue 12.
No debuts from Seven Seas, but we do get Blank Canvas 2 *and* The Girl from the Other Side 7, as well as the 2nd and final Division Maneuver in print.
MICHELLE: Seven Seas really has some great titles these days.
ASH: It’s true. I adore The Girl from the Other Side and the first volume of Blank Canvas was terrific.
MELINDA: It’s really been a pleasure to watch Seven Seas become awesome.
SEAN: Vertical has the 2nd volume of the Koyomimonogatari short story collection, with one of the better cliffhanger’s Nisio has done. They also have To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts 9.
We get several more Yen titles, though again a lot of their August lineup shifted into September. Yen On has Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded, as well as the 9th KonoSuba novel.
Yen has two debuts. One is a done-in-one omnibus, Count Fujiwara’s Suffering (Fujiwara Hakushaku no Junan). Fujiwara is a cat. The cat is the straight man to two wacky siblings. This ran in Kodansha’s Shonen Sirius.
ANNA: Is there dog manga? I feel like we’ve gotten a bunch of cat manga and no dog manga.
SEAN: There’s Fullmetal Alchemist… (WHACK) Ow!
MICHELLE: Now, that’s just wrong.
MELINDA: It huuuuurts.
SEAN: The other debut, Overlord A La Carte, is a comic anthology take on the Overlord light novels done by various artists. It runs in Kadokawa’s Comp Ace, also the home of the main Overlord manga.
Yen has A Bride’s Story 11 and Silver Spoon 10, which my sixth sense tells me I should separate from the others for the convenience of comments.
ASH: Both are phenomenal series! A Bride’s Story is gorgeous and Silver Spoon has so much heart.
MELINDA: You know Silver Spoon tends to blind me to any manga unfortunate enough to be sitting around it, but if anything’s got a shot, it’s A Bride’s Story!
SEAN: Yen also has Dimension W 15, Hatsu*Haru 8 (I actually really like this one), Re:Zero Arc 3 Volume 8, The Royal Tutor 12, Shibuya Goldfish 5, Smokin’ Parade 6, Tales of Wedding Rings 7, and Val x Love 6.
Not bad for the end of August. What are you getting?
