SEAN: The final week of January, and a quiet, peaceful time for books. After last week, that’s a relief.
(Note: Diamond Comics is shipping some Viz stuff to me 1-2 weeks early; I’m assuming that’s them and going with the official release dates, so they’ll be in upcoming posts. I’m also getting Soul Eater late. Diamond gonna Diamond.)
Dark Horse has the 34th volume of Gantz, which despite my occasional mockery has done very well for them, as can be seen by their license of another series by the same author. Still no HEN, though. Or even Hen.
Kodansha has a new Fairy Tail, the 46th. After this one, we go from monthly to bimonthly, so the Fairy Tail catchup seems to have finally slowed down. Kudos to all who stayed caught up.
MICHELLE: Which wasn’t me!
SEAN: I didn’t think Whispered Words’ 3rd omnibus was coming out from One Peace books till late March, but it was shipped to me last week, so yay for early bird releases. I’ve already reviewed it here.
ASH: My copy arrived early, too! I’m looking forward to finishing the series.
MJ: This is definitely something to look forward to!
MICHELLE: I haven’t checked back in with this title since the first omnibus, so an early conclusion is definitely an incentive.
SEAN: One Peace also has the 3rd through 5th volumes of Raqiya also coming out, which I believe completes the series.
ASH: It does indeed.
SEAN: Lastly, Diamond Comics has started shipping print copies of the final volume of Neon Genesis Evangelion, so even though I highlighted in in November when it came out digitally I will mention it again here.
Do you see something here you want? Or are you taking the week off?
ANNA: I’m taking the week off! More of an opportunity to make some headway with all the stacks of unread manga piled up in my house.
