And how could I resist mentioning that volume 10 of Yotsuba&! has been released. This darling series about an odd young girl and her slice of life adventures have captured the hearts of many readers – of all ages. From the famous pen of Azumanga Diaoh creator Kiyohiko Azuma.
Full series available at all stores – manga only, Kiyohiko Azuma has repeatedly said there are no plans for an anime of this series, as the stories and art are not suited for animation. Read it now!
From Shojo manga to Shonen we’ve got you covered. Make sure to check out a new series from Viz called Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan. This shonen sets itself apart with lavishly drawn pages and attention to detail. Featuring many of Japan’s Yokai (spirits) both famous and lesser known Nura chronicles the struggle of monsters and humans trying to coexist in a modern world. With special entries at the back of the books talking about the crazy characters within, you’ll be up on your Yokai knowledge in no time!
It’s been over 10 years since we’ve seen her in print, and isn’t she fabulous. Uncut, uncensored – with the original Japanese covers gracing the books as well! Enough to make any hardcore fan happy, and introduce a whole new generation to the greatest of all Magical Girl series.
