MJ: With the slew of Yen Press titles on Sean’s list this week, along with new volumes of series like Limit and Sailor Moon, it’d normally be pretty tough for me to choose a single pick. Fortunately Viz comes to the rescue with a title I absolutely can’t refuse, and that would be Sunny, the latest from mangaka Taiyo Matsumoto, author of Tekkonkinkreet and Blue Spring. This is one of my most-anticipated manga of the year so far, and a no-brainer as my Pick of the Week. I really can’t wait to read it.
ANNA: I’ll have to go with Sunny as well. I’m most excited about reading that.
MICHELLE: I’m going to award my pick to the low-key sci-fi charmer, Saturn Apartments, which comes to a close this week in its seventh volume. I’m somewhat behind on this tale of future window-washers and how their occupation affords them glimpses of the different strata of society, but I’m really looking forward to seeing how it turns out in the end.
SEAN: I’ll go with Sailor Moon once again. Of all the manga, these last two volumes are the ones I’m least familiar and comfortable with, and I seem to recall liking them less than the rest last time around. I look forward to finding new things to love about them in this new edition, as well as another visit with my favorite Sailor Senshi—which is to say, all of them.
What looks good to you this week?
