Last week, I reviewed series only by female mangaka. Here’s a quick rundown!
Sunday: Volume six of Peach-Pit’s insightful take on the magical girl genre, Shugo Chara!
Monday: The second volume of Yun Kouga’s RPG-like shonen fantasy series, Gestalt.
Tuesday: Both volumes of Mikase Hiyashi’s quiet tale of a young girl raising her nephew alone, March on Earth.
Wednesday: A day off at PAD, but the Girls Only spirit was alive and well at CSBG, where Danielle Leigh, Michelle Smith, and I discussed volumes 3 & 4 of NANA!
Thursday: The fifth volume of Yuki Obata’s delicate shojo series We Were There–one that is especially personal for me.
Friday: Volume 19 of my favorite long-running shonen series, Hiromu Arakawa’s Fullmetal Alchemist.
Saturday: For the grand finale, the full series (5 volumes) of Ai Yazawa’s gorgeous tale of love, fashion and self-discovery, Paradise Kiss!
I had a wonderful time reading these books and I will definitely repeat the theme again in the future. I hope it was enjoyable for everyone!
The new week begins with yesterday’s guest review from Megan M. of the first volume of CMX’s manga adaptation of light novel series Ballad of a Shinigami. Much more to come!
