The Picks:

Amy’s Pick : Lot of titles that I am interested in this week but I have to go with the latest volume of Happy Cafe. For me it’s been a sugary sweet shojo guilt pleasure that I enjoy, almost as much as reading some Harlequin manga titles.

Connie’s Pick:  There’s so many titles this week, and I love so many of them!  At the top of my list is the next volume of Skip Beat, simply because I can’t get enough of Kyoko.  But I’ve got a lot of must-haves this week, including the next volume Seiho Boys’ High School, the bizarre Demon Sacred, and the surprisingly good Kabuki.

Lori’s Pick: I’m all about the new titles this week, and all supernatural ones at that. I was curious about Blue Exorcist when Viz first announced it, and first impression reviews are keeping the positive feelings going. It’s one I have to check out, as is another of Tokyopop’s new titles, Butterfly. It’s another supernatural mystery title, which are the ones I love most (next to cat sleuths). I’ve heard good things about it too. It’s going to be an expensive week.
