The end of the month once more draws near which means it’s once more time for a manga giveaway at Experiments in Manga! For this month’s giveaway you all have the chance to win not one, but two manga of the superheroic nature, a mix of the old and the new as well as the […]

My Week in Manga: April 18-April 24, 2016

My News and Reviews As I recently mentioned, for a while here I’ll be down to one review a week or so at Experiments in Manga. And so, last week’s review was of The Inugami Clan by Seishi Yokomizo, a popular Japanese murder mystery from the early 1950s that has sadly gone out of print […]

Manga the Week of 4/27

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: […]

My Week in Manga: April 11-April 17, 2016

My News and Reviews As I alluded to a few months ago, I’ve been in the process of trying to purchase a house. Well, I finally made it happen! I signed all of the papers on Friday, so for the foreseeable I’m going to be a little preoccupied getting things ready and moving over to […]

Manga the Week of 4/20

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 […]

My Week in Manga: April 4-April 10, 2016

My News and Reviews In case anyone was wondering just how much I was looking forward to seeing Akiko Higashimura’s Princess Jellyfish released in English, I apparently ended up devoting an entire week to it at Experiments in Manga. (Sort of.) First was the announcement of the winner of the Princess Jellyfish giveaway, which also […]

Manga the Week of 4/13

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 […]

My Week in Manga: March 28-April 3, 2016

My News and Reviews A couple of different things were posted at Experiments in Manga last week. For starters, since it’s the end of one month and the beginning of another, it’s time for another manga giveaway! There’s still an opportunity to enter for chance to win the first omnibus of Akiko Higashimura’s wonderful Princess […]

Manga the Week of 4/6

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 […]

Manga Giveaway: Princess Jellyfish Giveaway

The end of March is drawing near, which means it’s time for another manga giveaway here at Experiments in Manga! Thanks to the fine folks at Kodansha Comics who provided the manga for this month’s giveaway, you all have a chance to win the first omnibus of Akiko Higashimura’s manga series Princess Jellyfish. And, as […]

My Week in Manga: March 21-March 27, 2016

My News and Reviews I only posted one in-depth manga review at Experiments in Manga last week, taking a look at Of the Red, the Light, and the Ayakashi, Volume 1 by Nanao, which is an adaptation of a visual novel by the doujin group HaccaWorks*. I was actually a little surprised by how much […]

Manga the Week of 3/30

SEAN: For a 5th week of the month, there’s a surprising amount of stuff coming out, though it’s nothing compared to April, which features 895,623 new and ongoing series. But it’s still March, so what’s happening next week? The Passion of Gengoroh Tagame is getting a re-release from the Bruno Gmuender publisher, giving you more […]

My Week in Manga: March 14-March 20, 2016

My News and Reviews I managed to post two in-depth manga reviews at Experiments in Manga last week, though it looks like I’ll only be posting one this coming week since taiko will be keeping me pretty busy with a number of different performances and related events. Inio Asano’s A Girl on the Shore was […]

Manga the Week of 3/23

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 […]

My Week in Manga: March 7-March 13, 2016

My News and Reviews I was finally able to post February’s Bookshelf Overload at Experiments in Manga last week, a few days later than I originally intended, but at least it’s up. I’ve been intentionally decreasing the number of new manga and other things that I’m buying at the moment, which means that I’ll be […]
