MICHELLE: I have really loved Lovesick Ellie throughout its run, and though I’m sad to see it go, I’m sure I will love the finale, as well. That’s my official pick this week, but honorable mention to Those-Not-So-Sweet Boys. The premise is not the most original in the world, but I’ve loved the other Yoko Nogiri titles Kodansha has published, so I’ll be giving this one a shot, too.
SEAN: I’m reading my Pick of the Week as I speak, and it’s as good as I’d hoped. The Apothecary Diaries has been a long-awaited LN that needed the LN market to be robust to justify a license. It now is, and I hope this sells well, because it is good – especially Maomao, the eccentric and somewhat terrifying heroine.
KATE: I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each, and their message is loud and clear: “Buy volume two of Mermaid Saga, the price is within reach.”
ASH: It’s a week with quite a few interesting new titles being released, but I find that I’m drawn to the re-issue of Mermaid Saga for my pick, too. The series is dark, disconcerting, and utterly fantastic – I’m so glad that it’s finally back in print again.
ANNA: Out of what’s coming out next week, Blue Flag volume 6 is what I’m most likely to read first, so that’s my pick!
