SEAN: I’ve gushed about A Sign of Affection before, so I’ll make my pick Golden Japanesque – A Splendid Yokohama Romance, because anything that runs in Flowers, even if it’s the online version of Flowers, demands my attention.
MICHELLE: I have to concur. I love suu Morishita’s Shortcake Cake, so I’m confident I’ll also love A Sign of Affection, but it’s hard to compete with Flowers.
ANNA: I’m very interested in Golden Japanesque – A Splendid Yokohama Romance, but since Sean has handled the gushing for A Sign of Affection before I feel I must take up the banner and do some additional gushing, because it really is one of the best romance manga that I’ve read recently. I hope the arrival of the print version will inspire more people to check it out.
KATE: As someone who teaches a Rock History survey course, I am irresistibly drawn to Days on Fes. I can’t wait to see how the artist handles 20-minute guitar solos, long lines at the bathroom, and crazy pyrotechnics….
ASH: All three of the manga mentioned so far are at the top of my list this week, too! A Sign of Affection is probably the one that I’ll be reading first, though.
MJ: Like Ash, I’m interested in all the manga that’s been mentioned by my colleagues, but the one for which I’m most ravenous is A Sign of Affection. It’s at the top of my list!
