SEAN: There’s a ton coming out, mostly Yen Press. I suspect MB will focus on Silver Spoon and YowaPeda, so I will go with the first omnibus of the 8th and final arc of Umineko When They Cry. Barring a side story license (don’t hold your breath), this is the end for Battler, Beatrice and company, but the final arc – both game and manga versions – is very controversial among fans. Can’t wait to read it – despite the cover art from hell.
MICHELLE: It’s gotta be Yowamushi Pedal for me, although Sean has informed us that the Inter High *still* isn’t over.
ASH: Yup, Sean knows us well. Yowamushi Pedal is one of the releases I’m particularly looking forward to this week, but I’m even more excited for more Silver Spoon. I greatly enjoyed the anime adaptation of Silver Spoon and the original manga remains just as strong if not stronger.
MJ: I mean. Obviously it’s Silver Spoon. I hate being so predictable, but there it is.
KATE: You and me both! I’m 100% on team Silver Spoon this week, as it’s quickly become one of my all-time favorite coming-of-age stories with great cartooning, great characters, and great dialogue. I know I sound like a broken record, but I want more people to read this delightful series, if only so that Yen Press (or another publisher) will rescue Arakawa’s other farm manga from licensing purgatory.
