SEAN: Some of my favorites out this week – Witch Hat Atelier, a Monogatari novel, Silver Spoon – but we get A Bride’s Story so infrequently that I always feel a need to call attention to it when it’s out. It’s my pick.
MICHELLE: Lots of good stuff, indeed. I find I’m most looking forward to another installment of the always fascinating (and always gorgeous) The Girl from the Other Side.
KATE: Whoever decided to release new volumes of Silver Spoon, The Girl From the Other Side, Blank Canvas, Witch Hat Atelier and A Bride’s Story on the same day is trying to ruin me financially! C’mon, guys, have mercy on those of us with good taste…
ANNA: There’s so much great manga coming out this week! I love many of the series already mentioned, but if I have to be honest, the first thing I’m going to reach for is Witch Hat Atelier. It manages to create a slightly menacing yet absolutely charming fairy-tale like atmosphere in this story of a new young witch discovering her powers.
ASH: It really is such a bountiful week! My wallet weeps, but my soul sings. I wholeheartedly support everyone’s picks, but I’d like to express some extra love for Blank Canvas. Higashimura’s manga are always a hard-hitting but humorous treat.
MJ: Okay, I’ll be the one to go all in for Silver Spoon, because Hiromu Arakawa always wins for me, even with so many other fantastic books in the mix. I will admit, though, that I kind of regret that I haven’t paid more attention to Witch Hat Atelier.
