On The Shelf: June 26, 2013

It’s a busy week for Kuriousity as half our writers, myself included, gear up for the upcoming Animaritime. It’s the final prep-day countdown! But that doesn’t stop us from oogling this week’s new assortment of manga, which includes a whole bunch of new Yen Press books.

I really enjoyed Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories which Yen Press is releasing as a single omnibus. Unfortunately my feelings weren’t as generous for Puella Magi Kazumi Magica. To each their own of course, and this week offers plenty to choose from. Buy and enjoy!

Otaku USA: On The Shelf – February 27, 2013

Otaku USA: On The Shelf - February 27, 2013

It’s a Yen Press and Kodansha Comics week! My top picks of the books released yesterday are Until Death Do Us Part (Vol. 03), and – to my surprise- The Misfortune of Kyon & Koizumi. Those two were the only thing I really enjoyed about the Haruhi franchise, so reading a collection of shorts about them with some boys’ love jokes proved pretty entertaining.

You can read my thoughts on this week’s releases over at my weekly On The Shelf article for Otaku USA.
