SEAN: It’s rare that I choose a pick based on a cover, but the cover art for My Dress-Up Darling just looks so confident and strong that I can’t help but be drawn to it. So I’ll make it my pick, with an honorable mention to the next Ran the Peerless Beauty.
MICHELLE: I will take up the banner for Ran the Peerless Beauty! It’s extremely charming, with expressive art and very likable leads. It’s got a little in common with Kimi ni Todoke, particularly the overall feel of it, so if you need something to fill the hole that series left behind when it ended, may I suggest Ran the Peerless Beauty?
ASH: The manga I’m most curious about this week is My Dress-Up Darling – it’s premise is intriguing, but I could also see it going in directions that I’m not particularly interested in. So, in case it turns out not to be my type of series, my backup pick is the most recent volume of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle.
MJ: Despite reports of abundant fanservice, I’m also cautiously drawn to My Dress-Up Darling, and hey, if you can’t take chances during quarantine, when can you? I’ll join Sean in making that my pick for the week!
KATE: I’m still hoping to get a good night sleep one of these days, so my vote goes to the latest installment of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle. Syalis can catch 40 winks ANYWHERE… now that’s a superpower! (Also: how you can you resist a manga with cute teddy demons, quite possibly the most harmless monsters anyone has committed to the page?)
ANNA: I agree with Kate, a funny manga all about a good night’s sleep sounds like a great distraction right now, so Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle is also my pick.
