This is what tethysdust said this week:
Kamisama no Iutoori is not exactly a new concept, but it stands out by being more violent than usual. I am curious what's behind the death games.
Double Marriage is pretty sexually explicit, but it's taking a more serious approach than I expected to the idea of legal bigamy and the problems it might cause.
Wolf Red was a cute story, if a little cliched. I could see it possibly getting a serialization, though, the premise seems very set up for it.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Samurai Ragazzi – the concept is really original and the adventure style makes it so the series has multiple and unique storylines. Has lots of potential and looking forward to see which direction the author decides to take.
Sugarless – about a school that are filled with the most badass fighters. Reminds me of Baki where dudes are just duking it out just because they are men. Looks really interesting with a mix of serious fights and some comedy.
I'm a bit curious about Double Marriage
since polygamy is completely not the norm. It reminds me a bit about the tv show 'Big Love.' I think we've featured 2 or 3 survival game-type manga in a row now, but I'm still interested in checking out Kamisama no Iutoori
. Let's hope this one has some interesting games as well~ Sugarless
reminds me of other school yankee fighting manga like Crows
(as opposed to the manga CROW featured this week) or maybe Aiki...Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
