Manga the Week of 2/15

Next week is not nearly as huge as this week, which is a relief. Especially for people like me, as several titles I ordered did not ship this week. So I get 2 normal weeks for once, as opposed to Viz’s usual CRUSH YOU then nothing type of solicitations.

It is pretty much ALL Viz this Week 2; I was expecting some Yen, but no dice. From Viz we have quite a variety, though. There’s the 15th volume of Haruka: Beyond the Stream of Time, which is getting near its completion. Look at that cover. Doesn’t that just scream romantic fantasy to you? I hear it’s a reverse harem as well. There’s also the 10th VIZBIG edition of Inu Yasha, which should contain Vols. 28-30, meaning it’s over halfway there!

Speaking of titles nearing their end, Kekkaishi hits the big 3-0, meaning after this there’s only five to go. And Maoh: Juvenile Remix hits its penultimate volume, with the Chemical Brothers taking the remix turntable this time around. And just to show we have not one manga this week that’s not over halfway or more to its end, we have the 19th volume of 20th Century Boys.

Lastly, Viz has several tie-ins coming out for The Secret World of Arietty, better known to those of us who grew up in the 1970s (or earlier) as The Borrowers. I saw the preview for it, which looked excellent, and supporting Ghibli is always a worthy endeavor.

Any favorites next week? Or did you get shorted on Nura and Otomen this week as well?

  1. Some people born in the 80s were familiar with The Borrowers too… though I mostly read books about The Littles. I’m watching my theater listings waiting for the movie to show up :D
