Follow-up of the previous post, featuring the second half of the series.
Do keep in mind that the impressions are based mostly on just the first volume 😛
I’ve been in Japan for the past two weeks and I got a chance to go around different bookstores and manga cafes, checking out any manga that looked interesting and skimming through series promoted by each store.
It was a lot of fun, and I managed to find ten or so series that caught my attention solely from the cover art, and went ahead grabbed the first volume of each from ebookjapan.
The result was actually a lot better than I expected, and I was pleasantly surprised by most of them. A few of them had already been translated before, but most of them are pretty new and unknown from what I can tell.
I’ll be sharing my first impressions of these series solely based on their first volume split into two posts. Here are the first
five six (I can’t count).
The first of Weekly Shounen Sunday’s new Spring lineup is here, starting with basketball manga, switch. Other than that, this month’s issue of monthly Gessan came out.
The usual weeklies, the May Jump SQ issue, and two brand new series, one about figure skating and the other about fashion.
The usual weeklies, new volume of Princess Maison, a new dark(?) fantasy series on Bessatsu, and some interesting tweets from Okamoto Lynn and Mizukami Satoshi.
