With New York Comic Con in the distance, releases this week are meager. Kodansha Comics debuts a new title in print, Kiss Him Not Me Vol 1. This series has been running on Crunchyroll Manga for a while now. Fujoshi girl keeps shipping the hot boys around her with each other, even through they all want to be with her. It don’t sound like my kind of series, but I though that about Yamada and the Seven Witches and I was wrong about that, so may be I’ll be wrong about this one too.
Viz has some slim picking made a little bigger by their Select line releases, but I have to admit to a guilty pleasure. The Pokemon Pocket Comics are actually funny and informative. I read the first one and not only enjoyed it, I also enjoyed torturing my kids with the puns and jokes from it. Viz is releasing a second volume, this time featuring the Legendary Pokemon. I love the Legendary Pokemon, so I will be looking to add this to my collection as well. And maybe I’ll let my kids read it.
