The Picks:

Alex’s Pick: For me, this week’s pick is fairly simple – Bunny Drop vol. 3 is out and ready for purchase! This deep, true-to-life manga about a man who adopts his grandfather’s illegitimate child is a must read. It is cute, funny, smart, and just something you don’t see every day in comics.

Amy’s Pick: There are a few things coming out this week that I’d like to grab but I’ve been waiting for the second novel for the series My Girlfriend is a Geek. I loved reading about the antics of Y-ko and look forward to reading the final volume in this two-part series.

Justin’s Pick: I’m with Alex this week. Bunny Drop is great. I got the second volume and fell in love with the series–which feels like it’s aimed at a completely different audience than most of the manga released in the past decade.

Connie’s Pick:  While there are several Yen Press titles this week that sound really good, I have to stick by an old favorite and choose Oh My Goddess.  True, it’s a re-release, but I never get tired of reading the stories in this series.  And if I’m not mistaken, this volume has one of those rare times when Keiichi gets the spotlight.  Good stuff!

Lori’s Pick: Time and Again has been one of my favorite manhwa’s from Yen Press, so getting the next volume in the series is a must for me. The ghost hunting stories combined with the tragedies that Baek-On and Ho-Yeon see and lived through make for some great reading!
