Justin’s Pick: Oh, Viz Signature online initiative, is there nothing you cannot accomplish? I didn’t keep up with Saturn Apartments online (at sigikki.com), so now I seek and find the individual print volumes. It’s a good enough series that I don’t mind paying for the print edition, especially because the art is both solidly manga, and yet at the same time bears an idiosyncratic line suggestive of western influences.
John’s Pick: Well, if I can start my Christmas List a little early, The Fullmetal Alchemist Box Set is what I would kill to get my hands on this week (or at least by the end of the year).
Alex’s Pick: I wouldn’t be a good host for the Natsume Ono MMF if I didn’t at least mention Tesoro, a collection of Natsume Ono’s earlier short stories into one collected volume – I am looking forward to getting my hands on this volume.
Amy’s Pick: The Fullmetal Alchemist Box Set would be flippin’ awesome! Thing I love about box sets the most is the savings compared to buying each individual volume. It’s a series that I’ve touched by reading a few volumes but it’s something I’d like to add to my ever growing collection some day.
Lori’s Pick: I already have all the volumes of the box sets Viz is offering (and would highly recommend for their age groups), so my must buy this week is Fairy Tail. My OCD demands it!
