This short of a list also seems to get a short list of recommendations from our reviewers, but definitely don’t write off these titles. Dark Horse hits both sides of the spectrum with the Korean shojo Bride of the Water God and the violent horror that is Gantz. Viz releases more from their Signature line, and one of Tokyopop’s last hurrahs ties into their recently released movie Priest.

Alex’s Pick: I’m torn between two Viz releases this week – should I pick Gente, or Saturn Apartments? Both are excellent slice-of-life manga in the Signature line, so I can expect some great reading regardless of my choice. Instead of pulling my hair out deciding, I will go with the easy choice – both please!
Lori’s Pick: I enjoyed the first volume of March Story. I was intrigued by the story and the direction it was going, so I’m definitely picking up volume 2, especially after a six month wait.
