PR: Viz Media Releases Second Naruto Novel

Just because the manga is done, that doesn’t mean the adventures in the world of Naruto are! This story takes place after the Great Ninja war and fills in some of the time between the end of the manga and sequel Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring. It also features Shikamaru, one of the more interesting characters from the manga. If you are already feeling the withdrawals of no new Naruto chapters, then this novel is just what you need.

PR: Viz Media Loves February with New Digital Manga Update

February is the month that’s all about the romance, so their digital bundles this time are almost all from the Shojo Beat imprint. Demon Love Spell, Jiu Jiu, and Kaze Hikaru all have great deals. If your love is for games, then pick up one of the Hikaru no Go bundles. If you prefer your heart spurting blood, check out the new Viz Select title Judas, a former Tokyopop title that is more horror than honey.

PR: Viz Goes “Behind the Scenes” with Bisco Hatori’s New Manga

 I must confess, I’ve only read Millennium Snow by Bisco Hatori. I never jumped on the Ouran High School Host Club bandwagon, though I considered it after reading Millennium Snow, and really loving the series. But 18 volumes is a lot to catch up on, so its lucky that she has this new series coming out that’ll be easier to keep up on than trying to play catch-up. Behind the Scenes interests me more since the characters are older and in college, and I may be able to relate to them better. And with volumes only coming out twice a year, keeping shouldn’t be that hard (ha!)

PR: Court Room Drama Gakkyu Hotei Launches From Viz Media

I was never really interested in court room dramas until my daughter got me interested in Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney. Gakkyu Hotei can be best be described as a  younger reader version of Phoenix Wright, with the cases all occurring in school, and Inugami being the defense attorney who never loses. I read a few chapters in Weekly Shonen Jump and liked it so much I pre-ordered the first volume. Obata’s art and Enoki’s school appropriate cases make for an entertaining combination.

PR: Celebrate 2016 with Viz Media Digital Update

Viz Media starts off 2016 with some new digital title and quite the selection of bundles. They’ve rescued two more former Tokyopop titles, Saving Life and Kannazuki no Miko, both of which are also considered mature titles and won’t be available in their app. They are certainly interesting pick ups by Viz. I would never have expected Kannazuki no Miko to be one. May it was part of a digital package deal. I love the bundles they have this month. I recommend Godchild. It’s a good deal for the whole series. I’d love to get the Nura:  Rise of the Yokai Clan entire series, and wish they would do some bundles for the latter half of titles. I have Vol 1-10 of Kimi ni Todoke already. What I could really use is a Vol 11-20 package.

PR: Start the New Year with the End of Naruto

With this final box set and epilogue volume, Viz Media gives a fond farewell to Naruto, one of their flagship titles of the 2000s. It’s hard to believe it is finally over, but Naruto‘s saga spanned 72 volumes, which is more than respectable for a shonen series. Even though I didn’t make it through whole series, I jumped off shortly after the time jump, I did enjoy the parts I did read. I wouldn’t mind going back to pick up where I left off. Though space constraints would dictate going digital.
