It’s a strong release list this week as Kodansha, Seven Seas, and Vertical debut new titles. Digital titles make a strong showing with Yen Press dropping several new chapters and volumes of digital only titles.
It’s another light week, but the publishers are spread around better than last week, including one we don’t see often. That also doesn’t mean your wallet is any safer as there are some debut titles and omnibuses that may have to grace your shelves.
This week’s releases are bottom heavy with publishers from the last half of the alphabet, but light on releases overall. Most only have one or two volumes coming out.
It’s the first Wednesday of the month, so that means Viz Media rains down with all their shonen and shojo releases. Smartly, other publishers keep their releases to a minimum. It’s hard to go against the Viz Shonen juggernaut.
It’s a Yen Press Week with the bulk of the publisher’s print titles coming out. Trying to stay above this wave is Kodansha Comics and Vertical Comics with a few strong titles, while digital releases keep up their fairly steady pace.
Print is skimpy on releases, but digital only releases help to fill the gaps. While digital is fast and convenient, print still has the titles I’m looking for.
It’s the start of a new year, and that means new titles debuting from Seven Seas Entertainment, Vertical Comics and Viz Media Digital.

It’s not much of a week for print manga from Diamond. Kodansha and Seven Seas Entertainment are the only ones releasing anything, and none of them are anything I’m reading. Thank goodness for the growth of digital manga! Continue reading This Week’s Manga: Bonfire of the Vanitas
It’s a week before Christmas, and publisher are making sure there’s a wide selection of books to choose from. Continue reading This Week’s Manga: Making a List
It’s a small but varied selection in print this week. Dark Horse releases the long-awaited first omnibus of Planetes, the sci-fi series by Makoto Yukimura, who also created Vinland Saga. The series has been out of print for almost 10 years now. Tokyopop originally printed it in a small print run, so copies have been scarce. It’s great that Dark Horse has picked it up, and it’s a good fit for their line. I still have the original Tokyopop run, but it might be interesting to check out this one to see what Dark Horse has done differently.
