MICHELLE: There are a handful of new volumes in series I’ve either started or intend to start, but of course I’m going to pick the new sports manga. Blue Lock isn’t a story about high school underdogs aiming for nationals, and I’m actually not sure I will like this one, given the coach’s methods, but I look forward to checking out a different twist on the genre.
SEAN: I suspect Rose of Versailles is gonna get bumped back a bit after all, release date-wise, though it is a must read – it would normally be my pick. Instead, I too will go with Kodansha Digital this week. We’re New at This has proven to be a title which emphasizes the strengths and minimizes the weaknesses from the prior work of the author, Ao-chan Can’t Study. It’s funny, it’s romantic, and it’s erotic. I want to read more of it.
ASH: Whenever Rose of Versailles ends up being available, that will definitely be my pick. But my backup pick this week is Beast Complex. I may be behind on reading the main series, but I greatly enjoyed the early volumes of BEASTARS, so I’m curious to read more stories set in the same world.
ANNA: Rose of Versailles would have been my pick, but I think my backup choice will be Blue Lock, just because it is always nice to highlight new sports manga.
