The Picks:
Alex’s Picks: Wow, what a crop of books this week! Kodansha gets into the action and releases the latest volume of Negima, and Yen Press has the first volume of Bride’s Story to pick up. This is a great week for manga geeks!

Connie’s Pick: For me this week, it can only be Bride’s Story by Kaoru Mori.  I missed the boat on Emma, so I’m really looking forward to this new story from Mori.  From what I’ve heard so far, it doesn’t disappoint.

Justin’s Pick: I’m so glad Kodansha is leaping into the market like this, picking up where Del Rey left off (especially Fairy Tail!). However, as Connie and Alex note, the killer book this week is Bride’s Story.

Amy’s Pick: Like Connie I didn’t get into Emma til it was too late, watched the anime to suffice, so I’m definitely grabbing a copy of Bride’s Story. But my pick this week is the third volume of Tyrant Falls in Love.

Lori’s Pick: Yen Press’ Bride’s Story is just sweeping away the picks this week. While it is most certainly deserved of the praise, I have to give my pick to Kodansha for finally coming to the market with some new releases, and becoming a real manga publisher here in the US. Fairy Tail is the title I’m most excited to see, but Arisa has been getting some good reviews, and is moving up on my to watch list.
