MICHELLE: Having acknowledged Horimiya last time, I am clear to pick the second volume of Liselotte & Witch’s Forest this week. The first volume was intriguing, even if it went by in a flash, and I look forward to finding out more about what’s going on.
SEAN: So much to choose from, but as I hinted, I am picking the 4th volume of Sword Art Online: Progressive, a reboot of the SAO Aincrad arc that shows off how much Kawahara has grown (and not grown, to be fair) as a writer since 2004. Also, Argo > you.
ASH: I’m definitely looking forward to reading more of Horimiya (I’ve fallen a little behind on the series), but the manga I’m most curious about this week is the debut of The Ghost and the Lady. A story combining supernatural mysteries with Florence Nightingale and packaged in a beautiful hardcover edition? Count me in!
ANNA: There’s not a lot coming out this week that I’m really excited about, but I’m going to pick Liselotte & Witch’s Forest, just because I have a feeling I’d like it once I get around to reading it!
MJ: I’m interested in the SAO novel that Sean is looking forward to, and also The Ghost and the Lady. But like Michelle and Anna, I’ll go with volume two of Liselotte & Witch’s Forest. I, too, haven’t gotten around to reading the first volume, but I feel like saving it for a double read this time was perhaps the right way to go!
