It’s October, my favorite month of the year! Aside from celebrating my birthday, I always look forward to all the Halloween goodness that comes around this season. Let’s take a look at all the manga treats coming out this month!
Summer may be over, but don’t get upset! Whether you’re headed back to school or starting to tackle those Q3 reports (like me), take a break in your busy schedule with one of these new manga releases.
The nuances of Japanese cannot always be translated directly into English (and by not always, I mean most of the time). Did key details in Gankutsuou get lost in translation?
It’s been a long time since a contemporary manga has affected me quite like A Silent Voice.
A member of the Year 24 Group, Keiko Takemiya is an award-winning shojo and shonen manga artist. She is considered a pioneer in the shonen-ai genre and is credited with being the first artist to include a male-male kiss in a shojo manga.
With the police stretched thin and no option for military mobilization, Mariko realizes it’s up to her team to save the day. Enter the anti-terrorism group known as CAT, Mariko’s squad of deadly women mercenaries and the stars of Kaoru Shintani’s seinen manga, Desert Rose.
An undefined group of women mangaka, the Year 24 group revolutionized shojo manga in the 1970s. Their works are considered manga classics, with many focusing on themes of politics, philosophical issues, sexuality, and gender.
Beat the summer heat with a cool glass of water, A/C fans on blast, and a stack of new manga to enjoy.
