Halloween is this coming Monday, and Yen seems to have prepared for it! Black Butler, Highschool of the Dead and Higurashi: When They Cry are squarely horror titles, and diverse enough to appeal to a wide audience. Dark Horse continues their lone shojo-manwha with the next volume of Bride of the Water God, and Vertical releases its high anticipated title Drops of God.

Connie’s Pick: It’s a hard choice this week! The current Black Butler storyline is fantastic, and finally sold me on that series. But I also recently caught up on Blade of the Immortal, and am just starting to discover the comedy gold in Sayonara, Zetsubou-sensei. But this week, the choice has to be A Bride’s Story volume 2. Volume one completely knocked my socks off in terms of art and storytelling, and I’m looking forward to where Mori decides to take the slow-paced, but beautiful plot and relationships.
Justin’s Pick: This is a good week, but I’m most excited by Drops of God. I’ve wanted to see this manga since I first heard about it affecting wine prices(!) it was so popular.
Amy’s Pick: I always get stoked to see a new volume of Black Butler but my pick for this week has to be Chi’s Sweet Home! Since Sebastian likes kitties as much as I do I think he’ll understand why Chi deserves some love too.
Lori’s Pick: There are a lot of good titles coming out this week, but I think I’ll make my themed for the season. Highschool of the Dead has me morbidly curious. After reading the first three volumes, I am interested, yet repulsed by it. It’s the train wreck that you can’t look away from, and I just can’t look away this week.
