This Week’s Manga: Idol Kittens

This Week's Manga

IdolDreams-01Viz is the top dog this week, as it has been for the last month on the New York Times and Amazon Bestseller lists. All of their shonen and shojo titles come out this week, including the final volume of Yukarism by Chika Shiomi, and new volumes of superhero titles One-Punch Man and My Hero Academia. Two new titles debut this week as well. Idol Dreams is the new Arina Tanemura title that features an office lady whose dreams of becoming an idol come true. I’m interested in this one for the older protagonist. Yokai Watch, the newest cross-media craze to be brought over. It features a young boy who can see and catch yokai and use them to battle other yokai. Can this new series topple the reining champion Pokemon? We shall soon see.

Vertical Comics finally releases the last volume of Chi’s Sweet Home. The fun and touching series about a kitten finding a new home and family and all of her adventures around the neighborhood has been a highlight with every volume, but like all good things, it must come to an end.

Livingstone 1Kodansha Comics has a new title debuting. Livingstone is about two men who try to help people whose souls many be straying off their destined path. The series sounded intriguing when it was announced, and finally it’s being released. Also debuting from Kodansha several digital titles that were previously only available on Crunchyroll streaming manga. All of the titles were among the first titles released on that platform. I’m not really interested in any of them except for Space Brothers. It’s about two brothers, working to fulfill a childhood dream to become astronauts. The manga has gotten a lot of good word of mouth, as has the anime. And it’s about space, so it’s got my attention!
