  1. The name of the manga series
  2. A summary of the series
  3. Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Itsuka Sora Kara was kind of cute. Akame ga Kill was really action-packed.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Decent amount of good series this week. Arachnid - assassin series with a young teenage girl. the adult/mature level is very cool and has a lot of potential. Tripeace - reminds me a lot of Tri-Gun b/c of the character and humor. cant wait to see what kind of dark past the main character has. We see a glimpse of it in the ending but it is still unclear what it means. Lots of potential to blow up.
My opinion:
Itsuka Sora kara sounds kind of funny with the friend falling for him when he transforms into his mom, although who would transform into that form? Solo Nigrum sounds a bit intriguing with the dark/evil music aspect. Ushiro no Shindere-san sounds a bit fun - falling in love with a ghost. XD

Thanks for all the shout out's =^^= they are really helpful and thanks to them i found several really great series which i might have missed otherwise.

btw I noticed that in series Arachnid name in brackets is wrong ... it should be "アラクニド" or something more proper(font is to small to read full name from the picture provided) and not "黒薔薇のサブロ" which means Kuro-Bara no Saburo and refers to different series (here)


Ps. There sure is plenty of good ones this time =^^= especially Akame ga Kill, Arachnid, and Tripeace caught my eye.
