The Picks:

John’s Pick: I can’t go this far and not give the love to Black Jack. This long series has been one of, if not the best long series I have been following.

Alex’s Pick: We missed a week, and now my wallet is starting to hurt again. New volumes of Bakuman and Blue Exorcist are my digital purchases this time around, and I’ll be picking up the second volume of Princess Knight, as well as the latest volume of 20th Century Boys. Also of note, I’m tentatively interested in Viz Media’s new shojo series, Dawn of The Arcana.

Amy’s Pick: Though there is plenty to choose from Viz Media I’m stoked at Seven Sea’s release of the latest volume of Blood Alone. Out of all titles that have either been rescued or re-released in 2011 this one tops my list. I didn’t think I’d have the chance to pick up this series again so I’m excited that it’s getting a second chance to shine.

Connie’s Pick:  I also have to tip my hat towards Black Jack.  It’s been a fun few years, and I’ll really miss my regular dose of the bizarre that was sure to come with each volume.  I love the cover on volume 17, too, a wonderful choice for the last volume.  And for something new, I’m going to have to go with Dawn of the Arcana.  It’s exactly the type of shoujo fantasy series I love to read.

Lori’s Pick: These choices would have been so much easier if they’d been split up. Deltora Quest, and Ghost in Shell Stand Alone Complex from Kodansha and the final Black Jack from Veritcal. But it’s that long list from Viz that really hits the pocketbook! House of Five Leaves, Natsume’s Book of Friends and Bakuman are all on my buy list. But I’ll give my pick to Kaori Yuki’s Grand Guignol Orchestra which ends this month. Her endings can be just as wild as the ride that get’s you there! I can’t wait to read it!
