MICHELLE: Although I’m happy to see more of Blue Morning, I have to admit that my heart belongs entirely to BLAME! this week. This is the title that made me a major fangirl for Tsutomu Nihei’s art style, and even if plot clarity is not his top priority with this title, there’s just something about his detailed rendering of the setting that gives me geekbumps. Thanks for the rescue, Vertical!
SEAN: I feel bad for not picking Hayate the Combat Butler, because if I don’t no one else will. But Michelle is right, BLAME! is clearly the pick of the week here, and I look forward to delving into it and being completely baffled by what is going on.
ASH: While I’m definitely interested in the re-debut of BLAME!, my pick this week is the most recent volume of Blue Morning. I’m not as voracious a reader of BL as I once was (maybe I’ve just become pickier) but I’ve been awaiting the continuation of Blue Morning with great anticipation.
MJ: I’m also pretty psyched for more Blue Morning, but having fallen so hard for Knights of Sidonia, I gotta jump on the BLAME! wagon here. Michelle’s endorsement goes a long way as well. I missed it the first time around, so count me in!
ANNA: I’m excited to have a chance to read BLAME! finally, and am glad Vertical picked it up because they always have great production values for their manga.
