The Picks:

Amy’s Pick: Ever since the anime finished airing I’ve been wanting to get my paws on the first volume of Betrayal Knows My Name. And it is two volumes in one! The color page inserts are a nice perk too.

Alex’s Pick: It’s really weird to keep on seeing Tokyopop manga even though the company has stopped publishing books. Still, there are some good things still being published, and I will grab Stellar Six of Gingacho, Vol. 3, while I still have a chance.

John’s Pick: It’s summer. School’s out. What better time for a little Sgt. Frog? It is great seeing a long runner still going strong.

Lori’s Pick: I was surprised to see more Tokyopop on the list, and even more surprised to see Sgt. Frog get another volume released. But as much as I love the Earth-invading, Gundam-model-building alien frogs, my pick this week has to go to Moon and Blood, a new series by Nao Yazawa just from Digital Manga Publishing. I really enjoyed Miyuki, so I’m really looking forward to this series!
