SEAN: Given that it turns out Manga Bookshelf are top-tier futurists, I’m tempted to pick March Comes in Like a Lion, but that will have to wait for 2022. And there’s plenty coming out this week anyway, including the new Shigeru Mizuki and a new volume of Rozemyne’s latest antics. But no, I am too tempted by the wonder that is Penguin Gentlemen, which wins for cover art alone. Hot damn.
MICHELLE: Penguin Gentlemen certainly has the most unique premise of this week’s batch, but I’m most drawn to some sweet Boys’ Love in the form of the first volume of I Cannot Reach You.
KATE: After reading Ash’s lovely review of Tono Monogatori, that’s my top pick for this week. But I won’t lie: a little animal-themed manga sounds pretty good, too, so add Penguin Gentlemen and Wonder Cat Kyuu-Chan to my list of “things I’m going to check out this week.”
ANNA: I’m not sure when I’ll actually get around to reading it, but Penguin Gentlemen sounds hilarious so that’s my pick.
ASH: It probably isn’t much of a surprise that Mizuki’s adaptation of Tono Monogatari is my pick this week – I’m thrilled that this manga is now available in English – but I will also admit that Penguin Gentlemen has caught my attention, too. Granted, for entirely different reasons.
