This Week’s Manga: Creepy Cat Manga

This Week's Manga

Gantz 37 Last week of the month, and publishers have quite an impressive haul. Dark Horse Comics finally completes Gantz with final volume 37. Gantz is well known for its graphic content and outrageous fights. This volume will surely be no different. On the other side of this coin is the debut of the new series from Seven Seas Entertainment, Golden Time. This rom-com is from the creator of Toradora, and features college students looking for a fresh start, but just can’t seem to escape the past.

Horimiya 1 Yen Press has their avalanche of titles, including the debut of Horimiya, a series that sounds strange, but ends up working thanks to the charming characters. Strike the Blood is also a new series, of sorts. It is the manga adaptation of a light novel that Yen already released. Don’t have time for the novel? This is your best bet! Black Butler fans will no doubt be dying for Yana Toboso Artworks Black Butler. So many images of Sebastian to drool over.

MJunji Ito Cat Diaryy must buy title of the week though comes from Kodansha Comics, and it’s cat manga! Junji Ito’s Cat Diary Yon and Mu is a one-volume series that combines the master of horror manga with the deadliest of creatures; the cat! I wanted to read this ever since I heard about it and that Kodansha brought it over is like a dream come true! And just in time for Halloween!

Lot’s of exciting things happening in digital only as well. Viz Media debuts Hanako and the Terror of Allegory Vol 1, another great title for Halloween that’s about urban legends coming to life. Yen Press debuts their digital only titles at half price to draw readers in, and I’m considering UNKNOWN at $2.99. Also debuting this week is When a Magician’s Pupil Smiles Vol 1, and if you really like it, you can pick up Vol 2 and 3 for regular price.
