Something between VOMIC and Flash anime for the 1st chapter of Ana Satsujin/Peephole.
They also add Kindaichi spin-off about Hajime and Miyuki romatic comedy too.
Look like I finally should read series in mangabox after never read any of them before(I wait Takato spin-off in tankubon book)
Updated the first post with the three new ones that appeared on today.
I started reading the Red Blood Red Legacy.
Surprised were nearly to 50 series in english.
I'm genuinely enjoying a lot of these series, but in the end none of them stand out in my opinion.
How is this tankoban thing going to work, are they going to print issues of Mangabox or just volumes of the series?
Looks like I needed to check the PC version of the chapter to see how the tank covers will look like:
Now I understand the meaning of this tweet

would be nice to hear from you guys which series you would recommend the most.
Peephole is my favorite.
District Hakkenshi [code:T-8] is my favorite in the service, great action, great art, and pretty hilarious. Its what I look forward to most on thursdays.
For the newer ones brought to the line up, I will go with Red Blood Red Legacy, I enjoy the art and epic scarf action, and the two bros.
My favs are:
Logick (I guess it has the longest chapters in the pack but still manages to move forward and grab attention)
Tawara Neko (I'm living with 5 cats so I'm more than glad to see cat manga too; also it's full color and the heroine have some interesting traits)
Billion Dogs (this one undoubtedly has the best/most detailed art in the pack though it's become less regular and the story kinda slowed down)
Ana Satsujin (one of those I'm looking forward the most to read the next chapter)
Kaeru no Ossan/Seitokai Sousenkyo (long type of 4coma; love first for the black humor - though sadly the English translation is 4 chapters behind and the second because of it's quirky characters - mostly Ryo)
GREEN WORLDZ (the latest development are quite extreme and the survival type of manga is interesting for me)
Shinjuku DxD (grear art and the story is kinda interesting... a bit; still drags itself though)
Take Dake Dake!/Sailor Fuku;Apron/Onimote/Tenkuu Shinpan (first three are for guilty pleasure and the last kinda tries to look epic but actually more trashy for me; still the story is developing bit by a bit and occasional main heroine fan-service is fine)
Otonashi-san/Nadenade Shikoshiko (just not that bad shorts for a week)
Tokku Hakkenshi (not really feeling it but have some great moments)
Akoya Tsutaya (not really digging political/tactical stuff but overall an interesting historical experience)
Toukyou Genji Monogatari (same feeling as Shinjuku but looks like this)
Arai Doki (the comedy is from OK to meh; still have some interest in youkai stuff so that's why I'm still in)
Wanko Number Wan (the art is nice... and some situations grab my interest a bit)
Houkai Seiki JOXER (really shounen-ish but with dark moments; my grow on me though)
On the fence:
Horizon (Temujin is too OP and too proud of it; when will the story move to the older version of him?)
Kaze no Stra (a few days ago I actually understood that the Badgers arc started in the 6th chapter... and now it's 20th chapter and it still drags itself even though not so many events happened and the chapters are bigger than 10pg; now I'm really thinking about givin it 3 more chaps after the end of this arc and make a final decision)
Aku no Higan/Ruten no Terma (both of these are really bad IMO; first is a sausage fest that manage to explain itself only in the latest chapter, also the way to start each chapter with a piece of some page is reeeally stupid; the second is too female oriented - the main character is always blushing, feeling unwell and having dokidoki while the other one is pushy... seme? yack)
Rakunou Milk! (not really feeling the humor here; the characters are kinda bland too)
Granddad's stories or something like that (not reading this anymore; started out funny but then became really gross and revolting with it's toilet humor - but it looks like ihas it's popularity with Japanese readers... strange)

List of Mangabox mangaka writers' twitter pages. Might be useful.

Feels like they are adding titles slower now, The host Man seems to be the newest one.
First volumes of their 11 titles are out today! And there are tons of photos with these tanks in shops on their official twitter.
I wonder if we'll see anything hit Oricon top next week
Are you able to read all back chapters for the manga in this app?
Surprising no-one reading First Love Suicide Pact(Hatsukoi Shinjuu) I think it's pretty alright.
