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.

Otaku USA: On The Shelf – February 20, 2013

Otaku USA: On The Shelf - February 20, 2013

Not much manga out this week, which is a little odd for a month’s mid-week. Maybe there wasn’t enough manga-karma left after the manga licenses last week? Who knows! Still some good stuff though~ You can read my thoughts on this week’s releases at the usual place, Otaku USA’s On The Shelf article.

Otaku USA: On The Shelf - February 13, 2013

Our snow here was short-lived, two feet of beautiful white fluff now little more than some crusty banks after a night of rain. It was rather disappointing! On the other hand, it means there’s nothing but some distance between me and new comics.

Otaku USA: On The Shelf - January 23, 2013

More manga, more power! Or at least entertainment! I was spoiled by an early delivery week from Diamond Comics, so I was able to purchase a couple of this week’s titles last week. That means I can tell you for sure that there are some super gems out this week. Notably, Bride’s Story (Vol.04) and Black Butler (Vol.12) from Yen Press. Both were great!
