MICHELLE: I don’t think I have ever chosen a light novel as a pick before, but I Have a Secret seems like exactly the sort of light novel I would love, by which I mean its cover is shoujo-tastic and no one has apparently been reincarnated or summoned into another world. I look forward to checking it out!
KATE: I’m always interested in Shuzo Oshimi’s work, so Shino Can’t Say Her Name vaults to the top of my list. My inner musicologist, however, is intrigued by Those Snow White Notes, so I’m going to add that to my pick and hope I can start reading it sooner rather than later. (Those digital releases really sneak up on you!)
SEAN: I was a big fan of Dorohedoro, so it’s not a big surprise that my pick is the new manga by its author, Dai Dark, I’m sure it will be far too violent for my tastes, but I will read it anyway, because some authors you read just because they’re COOL.
ASH: I’m interested in everything mentioned so far, but I’m joining Sean this week in picking Dai Dark. I’ll admit, I don’t even know what it’s about, but I loved Dorohedoro and am looking forward to reading more of Q Hayashida’s work a great deal.
ANNA: I’m going to pick I’m the Catlords’ Manservant because it sounds ridiculous and that’s what I’m in the mood for right now.
MJ: Okay, I’ve been out of the loop lately for multiple reasons, but apparently there’s a manga called I’m the Catlords’ Manservant and it originated in GFantasy. Based on those two things alone, I must read it. I simply must. So there you have it.
