MICHELLE: While I really do enjoy Say I Love You. and look forward to its sixth volume, I’ve been in a more shounen-y mood lately, and so must pick (again, and probably not for the last time) volume ten of Magi, which is, like, an adventure saga with heart.
SEAN: As for me, I only get to do it twice a year, so I will pick the 25th Hayate the Combat Butler, which still makes me laugh an awful lot, thus fulfilling its function as a comedy, and also makes me like a girl that the hero is never going to end up with, thus fulfilling its function as a harem comedy.
ANNA: I will have to go with Say I Love You. I do enjoy this series, but I’m a few volumes behind. Time to stock up!
ASH: There are several manga being released this week that I’m interested in, all the way from A to Z. (Seriously, from Ajin to Ze.) But I’m actually going to go off list for my pick and choose Netcomics. Over the last few weeks, Netcomics has been releasing much its back catalog digitally for the Kindle–including Let Dai and Black-Winged Love, some of my personal favorites–making it even easier to get into Netcomics’ comics.
MJ: I will copy Ash this week, because really, Let Dai on Kindle? Be still my heart! Netcomics has started releasing some print volumes again recently, too. More about that here soon!

Netcomics is doing print volumes again? Neat! What are they doing in particular, re-prints of old, out of print things, or new things?
I actually just acquired Let Dai 14 a couple of days ago (I got a really cheap used lot on eBay for 2/3rds of the series, the rest, except 14, were really easy to find, then it suddenly dipped in price, so I jumped. Sure, the eBay lot was all ex-library, but I also got 10 volumes for about $27).
I’m also working on getting the last four volumes of 100% Perfect Girl. A friend gave me 1-6 for free and I enjoyed v1 a lot. 8 and 11 are the tricky ones…
Yeah, I’m still pretty new to manhwa, only been into manhwa about a year (manga has been at least 12), I started with Goong (you guys all convinced me, any my copy of 17 arrived last week too, can’t wait to see how it’ll end!) But I’ve read 13th Boy, 1001 Nights, Threads of Time, Hotel Africa, lots of short story thingies too now.

*cries* Oh, how I wish Kindle wasn’t the gorilla it is for eBooks. When I had one it was so frustrating with the quality, customer service & Kindle willy-nilly deciding they did not want to sell certain titles anymore I gave up. But, now some publishers only do eBooks for Kindle and the customer has to own the right device. When it comes to Kindle for me I can only use my phone with their app most times. (I still want Doraemon too!) A shame, I liked Netcomics and would love to own some of the volumes for titles they never finished or released. eBook is fine, just let me choose who to buy from and how I want to read it!
