SEAN: What’s that, you say? A new light novel series that isn’t a) a fantasy, b) an isekai, or c) a high school romcom? And it’s highly acclaimed? And it’s getting an anime starting next week? Sold! The Detective is Already Dead is definitely my pick this week.
MICHELLE: I’m definitely interested in The Detective Is Already Dead, but I’ll choose the final volume of Atsumori-kun’s Bride-to-Be. It had something of an old-school shoujo feel, a la Itazura Na Kiss, and I have enjoyed it quite a bit.
ANNA: I don’t usually go for light novels but The Detective is Already Dead sounds quite intriguing.
KATE: There’s a LOT this week, but I’ll be honest: not much of it is in my wheelhouse. The one title that caught my eye was Heterogenia Linguistico, which sounds like the kind of manga that will make my nerdy heart sing. A monster linguist? Yeah, I’d read that.
ASH: Since this week is its debut, my pick goes to The Detective is Already Dead, but monster linguistics is certainly a strong contender, too.
