This Week’s Manga: A Yen For Farewells

Diamond is one against messing around with the releases schedule, so what should be the week for Yen Press to shine, is overshadowed by all the Viz Media releases coming out this week as well. Sorry for the wallets of anyone who needs a week to replenish between the two big publishers.


Planetes 2It’s an extensive list this week with lots of good titles coming out. Dark Horse releases the second and final Omnibus of Planetes. It’s really great to have this series back in print, and hopefully more fully appreciated this second time around. Kodansha Comics finishes off a series as well. Wallflower, a series that started way back when with Del Rey Manga gets its final volume with vol 36. Vertical Comics also says farewell to their popular shonen sci-fi series as Knights of Sidonia comes to a close at vol 15.

Yowamushi Pedal 2Since this is normally Yen Press’ big week, I’ll give them the spotlight, and it’s easy with all the good books they’re releasing. The latest Emma Omnibus, Vol 4 comes out along with the far-too-long-in-waiting Yowamushi Pedal Omnibus Vol 2. There’s more shojo goodness with vol 3 of Horimiya as well as the debut of a comedy series that I can’t wait to read, Servant x Service Vol 1. Their digital only line up has some good titles coming out too with Vol 3 of Black Detective and Saki, as well as vol 4 of Unknown.
