My Week in Manga: June 1-June 7, 2015

My News and Reviews Happy June, everyone! I’ve been super busy (I seem to say that a lot, don’t I?) but was still able to post a few things here at Experiments in Manga last week. The winner of the Ema Toyama Twosome manga giveaway was announced. That post also includes a list of manga […]

Manga the Week of 6/10

SEAN: Thank you for all those who bought manga to bring rain to the Northeast. You can stop now (keep buying manga, I just mean no more flash flood warnings). Meanwhile, what have we in this small week? Kodansha gives us an 8th volume of shosei (I just coined it, whaddya think?) romance Say “I […]

My Week in Manga: May 25-May 31, 2015

My News and Reviews Last week was the last week of May, which means the most recent giveaway at Experiments in Manga is currently underway. There are still a couple of days left to enter for a chance to win an Ema Toyama Twosome, i.e. the first volume of both Missions of Love and Manga […]

Manga the Week of 6/3

SEAN: It has been hot here recently, so I am hoping that this Manga the Week of can serve as a rain dance. Doesn’t make much sense, but the heat has addled my brain. Fairy Tail 48 seems like a lot, till you remember it’s nowhere near One Piece. Which honestly applies to Fairy Tail […]

Manga Giveaway: Ema Toyama Twosome

June is almost here, and May is almost through, so it’s once again time to hold a manga giveaway at Experiments in Manga! This month you will all have the opportunity to win not one, but two manga created by Ema Toyama and released in English by Kodansha Comics: Manga Dogs, Volume 1 and Missions […]

My Week in Manga: May 18-May 24, 2015

My News and Reviews Well, it was a little later than I initially intended, but I finally finished writing and posted my random musings on TCAF 2015 last week! It’s a long post which includes some of my general thoughts as well as write-ups of the panels that attended while at the festival. Even considering […]

Manga the Week of 5/27

(This is late. Very late. I’m so sorry.) SEAN: The final week of May brings us a manageable and tasty selection. If this week is too much manga, next week is juuuuuust right. When the Evangelion Comic Tribute came out, one of the more popular contributing authors was Tony Takezaki, who long-time manga fans may […]

Random Musings: Toronto Comic Arts Festival 2015

2015 marks the third time that I’ve been able to attend the Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF). I generally don’t go to very many conferences, festivals, or conventions unless it’s for work, but I had such a phenomenal experience at TCAF 2013 that it’s become an annual event for me. TCAF is totally worth me […]

My Week in Manga: May 11-May 17, 2015

My News and Reviews Well, I was hoping to post the recap of my recent visit to the Toronto Comic Arts Festival last week, but I haven’t actually managed to finish writing it yet. (Things have been very busy at work and home, and the taiko performance season is ramping up, too.) So, the plan […]

Manga the Week of 5/20

SEAN: Did you enjoy this week’s small week? Good. That isn’t next week. Dance in the Vampire Bund’s Scarlet Order may have ended (somewhat surprisingly) in Japan, but Seven Seas still has more of it to bring you here, with Vol. 2 arriving next week. Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer’s third omnibus takes us over […]

My Week in Manga: May 4-May 10, 2015

My News and Reviews Despite spending a long weekend in Canada for the Toronto Comic Arts Festival and generally being very busy, I still managed to post a few things here at Experiments in Manga last week. To begin with, the winner of the Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches manga giveaway was announced. The post […]

Manga the Week of 5/13

SEAN: I haven’t seen a week this small since Christmas. It’s sort of creepy. First of all, right after I posted Manga the Week of last week, Dark Horse did a classic date slip, so Drug & Drop 2 is here again. Dark Horse is famous for release date slips, though they’re better than they […]

My Week in Manga: April 27-May 3, 2015

My News and Reviews Last week was the end of one month and the beginning of another, which means the most recent manga giveaway at Experiments in Manga is currently underway. The winner will be announced on Wednesday, so there’s still a little time to enter for a chance to win Miki Yoshikawa’s Yamada-kun and […]

Manga the Week of 5/6

SEAN: May, and the manga volumes coming out are not letting up in any way. Let’s see what we have in next week’s pile. I’m not entirely sure if Dr. Makumakuran And Other Stories is coming out this first week – Amazon’s site says “May 2015” in an unhelpful way. But it’s from Bruno Gmunder […]

Manga Giveaway: Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches Giveaway

The end of April is almost here, which means it’s time for another manga giveaway! With thanks to Kodansha Comics, this month you will all have a chance to win a copy of Miki Yoshikawa’s Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, Volume 1. (I unintentionally ended up with two copies, so my gain is also your […]
