ASH: It’s a rather light week for manga releases, but even so there are still a few series, like Genshiken that I’m currently following. However, the releases I’m most curious about this week aren’t even manga, though they are manga-related. Kodansha’s branching out with the Attack on Titan guidebook, but I’m particularly interested in reading Before the Fall from Vertical, which generally shies away from light novels.
MICHELLE: I have fallen several volumes behind on Bokurano: Ours, so I don’t know for certain that it’s still as depressing yet fascinating as it was early on. Perhaps the kids find a way out of their predicament! With that hope in mind, I recommend the final volume!
SEAN: I’m a sucker for infodumps, so the appearance of the Attack on Titan Guidebook is good news for me. I look forward to seeing the likes and dislikes of the entire cast in their biographies.
ANNA: There isn’t much coming out this week that appeals to me, so my pick of the week is Sparkler Monthly. I checked out their offerings recently, and I’ve enjoyed the online comics I’ve read from them. Check out their membership drive!
MELINDA: Anna, what an inspired idea! I will join you in your enthusiasm for Sparker Monthly! Though I admit I initially subscribed pretty much solely for the latest chapters of Jen Lee Quick’s Off*Beat, I’ve stuck around for the rest, including Quick’s new comic Gatesmith, which is very intriguing so far.
What looks good to you this week?
