This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
Dantalian no Shoka seemed like an interesting story, although it is very violent. Also, liarxliar was actually kind of funny.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Great series this week. Sheryl Kiss in the Galaxy - Shoujo series centered around a small but brightly shining star singer. The twist of it being in the future might be good or might be bad. Sayonara Football - Really like this series. Soccer series about a girl who is as good as everyone else but cant seem to get the chance. Super positive girl that never gives up even if everyone else has. Sailor Fuku Kishi - author of other series that I like. Little weird to see the same looking characters in different roles but the comedy is there. Looks pretty fun. Yuuyake Locket Pencil - Very slice of life story. Hard to put down. Romantic comedy type of story but really not mushy and easy to read. Really enjoyed the comedy and storyline in general.
My opinion:
Byousoku 5 centimeter looks like it'd be a good romance read. I wonder how close it is modeled after the anime... I'd be interested in reading Liar x Liar although the premise is pretty ridiculous - a girl who convinces her brother that she's not his sister and then dates her?! O.o I enjoy reading the series Nicoichi so it'd be nice to check out something else by this mangaka. Ryoko gives me a vibe of Jigoku Shoujo (Hell Girl) minus the sending the person to hell.


Translated items that need some love/scanlation:

Hey c_k~~~~

Just thought it might be worth noting that Sheryl ~Kiss in the Galaxy~ is a spin-off of the very popular anime series Macross Frontier ;) Also, her official romanised name is Sheryl Nome, not Norm ^^

lol, every cover picture presenting the manga titles all have females on it.
Love the shoujo selections.
-"Sheryl - Kiss in the Galaxy" & "Liar x Liar" looks interesting.

Sayonara Football (さよならフットボール) - that looks nice for a shounen. Definetly looks better than Kishimoto's oneshot "Bench".

Sailor Fuku Kishi (セーラー服騎士) - seinen - looks ok.
Ryoko - look creepy, but great!
Yuuyake Locket Pencil - looks sooo ecchi..hope it ain't loli.
