Manga the Week of 9/26

The last week of the month this year has always been rather sad and winsome, but that doesn’t mean all is lost! See what we have for you next week!

For those of you who were unable to kick in for DMP’s Kickstarter Project, Barbara is now here in comic shops to beguile you! This Osamu Tezuka manga is part of his ‘brilliant yet screwed up’ period, and is well worth a read. DMP is also releasing The Tyrant Falls in Love Vol. 7, which apparently does not need a Kickstarter in any way.

Kodansha Comcis has a trio of releases. Deltora Quest hits Volume 8 (are they still questing for Deltora, I wonder?), the 2nd Genshiken omnibus is out (with Vols. 4-6, and introducing Ogiue), and Miles Edgeworth shows us that he can investigate just as much as Phoenix Wright, even if his cast of silly characters continues to be just Gumshoe.

That’s it. What’s on your wallet’s mind?

  1. I didn’t realize I wanted Barbara until after the kickstarter ended, so I ended up preordering the retail version a few months ago. Though Amazon pushed by the delivery date to January 2013, then moved it back up to November 2012, and then up again to October 2012. So who knows when it will get here, but I look forward to it.
