The Picks:

Alex’s Pick: Another expensive week for me! I absolutely have to have the fifth volume of Itazura na Kiss from DMP, and I’ve been wondering about Countdown 7 Days and Replica since they were announced – I will probably splurge on DMP this week, and pick up the latest volume of 20th Century Boys next week.

Amy’s Pick: Though I love Sebastian and will already snagged my copy of the latest volume of Black Butler my pick this week is the second volume of Treasure. Being a two-part series I am excited to see how this story will unfold, especially since at the end of previous volume the plot and storyline where beginning to pick up some momentum.

Justin’s Pick: I will definitely look at least one book from every publisher this week (unless I’ve already got it, Kodansha…). The toss-up for me is between 20th Century Boys and the second Yellow series. With manga retail being what it is these days, I feel like the Urasawa book will be available months from now, but my local shops are ordering minimums on less well-known or niche titles. So, Yellow 2 it is, if I want to buy it in the store!

Lori’s Pick: While I love Black Butler, and can’t wait to read the end of Spiral, Viz has got my attention this week with their Signature titles. House of 5 Leaves and Kingyo Used Books are must buys for me, but I’m really looking forward to the second volume of March Story. I really enjoyed the first and am really looking forward to see where the next will go.
