Welcome to another Manhwa Monday!
It’s another slow week in the manhwa blogosphere, so following up on last week’s poll, we’ll take a moment to ponder this year’s continuing manhwa series. But first, a look at the week in reviews.
Raiders (Yen Press) gets the most attention this week, with reviews of volume one from Liz Reed at Manga Life and volume three from Kate Dacey at The Manga Critic. At Comics Village, Lori Henderson takes a look at volume eight of Goong (Yen Press). And at the Tompkins County Public Library’s In My Opinion (IMO) Teen Book Blog, reviewer Emme talks about volume one of The Tarot Cafe (Tokyopop).
Far in the lead in last week’s poll for best new manhwa series of the year (so far) is Sirial’s One Fine Day (Yen Press). This week, let’s take a vote on continuing series.
Check back next week for the results! That’s all for this week!
Is there something I’ve missed? Leave your manhwa-related links in comments!

You forgot Sarasah, missy! Shame on you. Since I’m only reading 2 manhwa, sadly, my votes go to Sarasah and Bride of the Water God.
Oh…I did read volume one of Time and Again the other day, which I enjoyed. If it keeps up the quality I could probably safely vote that one, too.
And I’ll also cheat and say Goong, though I’ve never read the books…I do own the live action drama, which is delightful.

Oh, so I did! Damn. I forgot one of my favorites, too, 13th Boy. I’ve added them both in now. *sigh*

I’m not sure I should have voted. I’ve only read Goong and One Thousand and One Nights. Theoretically, I might consider every single other manhwa on that list superior to Goong and One Thousand and One Nights should I ever try to read them.
Do the various UDON Entertainment series in hiatus limbo count as “continuing” series?

No, I only counted series that have had volumes released this year.
