Alex’s Pick: Any time Cross Game can be picked, you can bet that is what I am picking. Mitsuru Adachi is a master of his craft, and I’m excited to see where the story goes after the ending of volume 4.
Justin’s pick: Cross Game is undeniably great, and it’s my pick as well, even though some of my other favorites (20th Century Boys and Case Closed) are also out this week. It’s a tiny list, but a packed one.
Lori’s Pick: I have to go against the grain again this week. I’m just not into Cross Game, no matter how good people say it is. I’m much more in a Halloween mood, so March Story has to be my pick for the week. I like the stories with the cursed items, and it can really pour the horror when it wants to. It’s perfect for the longer nights of autumn.
