MICHELLE: As usual, there’s a lot coming out that interests me, but if I’m honest, it’s the sports manga that calls the most stridently. DAYS, Giant Killing, and Yowamushi Pedal can share my pick this week, for all are awesome, though perhaps the bicycle boys have a bit of an edge.
SEAN: There are a truly ridiculous number of light novels coming out this week, but the one that attracts my attention the most is Kokoro Connect. I loved the anime, I loved the manga, and I expect I will really love the light novel. Also, for once revel in seeing teenage romantic drama written well!
ASH: Yowamushi Pedal continues to be very high on my list, as does Silver Spoon, but I think I’ll throw my pick towards the final volume of the deluxe Battle Angel Alita this week. Not only does the volume include both endings of the series proper (which I’m only now finally getting around to reading), it also collects the related manga Ashen Victor along with in-depth interviews with Yukito Kishiro.
KATE: I only have eyes for one title this week: Silver Spoon, quite possibly my favorite new manga of 2018. You should read it, too. ‘Nuff said.
MJ: I basically have nothing to say except, “What Kate said.”
ANNA: I’m terrible in that I haven’t read volume 1 of Silver Spoon yet. But if I was able to actually keep up on all the manga that I’m interested in, I’m confident that I would love it just as much as everyone else who picked it this week.
