This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Nothing really stood out much this week. Kikai Banashi was probably my favorite. If you've read the one-shots, the serialization is pretty similar. Mardock Scramble started out pretty interesting, but the story was becoming more and more ridiculous. Vintage Warbirds is probably cool for people interested in planes.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Pretty good ones this week. Kiba...Arms Peddler - I love the artwork on this. Very well done along with the plot being very dark. Puts off a very serious mood and it fits very well with the series and characters. Maoyuu Maou Yuusha - I guess it was based on an online series? Very unique plot line where it starts where most series end. I really liked the comedic approach to everything along with the facts about war in general.
My opinion:
The idea of a balding teen sounds funny so I'd check out Hageruya. I'd definitely check out Liselotte to Majo no Mori since it's by the mangaka of Fruits Basket, and I really liked that series. I hope this new series is as good as that one was. The idea of a hero on the side of a demon queen piques my interest so I'd be willing to give Maoyuu Maou Yuusha a chance~
