Upcoming Comics Spotlight: Manga

There's definitely a lot of good manga in these past two catalogs, but not a lot of new titles. Still, there some interesting highlights that sound like they may be worth checking out.


You'll see that I'll try to include a little order code with most items (ex:JUL200019). Show some love to your retailer and use those codes when you can, it saves a lot of time on the data entry end of things.

BABY BEARS BAKERY GN VOL 01

(W) Kanen Totsu (A) Kanen Totsu


Welcome to Baby Bear's Bakery, a brand new patisserie run by a bear cub! While Bear may be a fine baker, he is not much of a business animal, so he has plenty to learn about running a small business. Finances, customer service and even researching new products are all new to this cub. But he is more than willing to dig his paws into the world of entrepreneurship. Join Baby Bear as he grows his cake empire! OCT201856


Why this caught my eye:

Listen, this just looks and sounds adorable. Starting with , "While Bear may be a fine baker.." just cinched it for me.

DAY I WAS FORCED TO MARRY GOD GN & DAY I DIVORCED GOD GN

(Solicit info is exactly the same for both)


Ms. Tamo believed in the teachings of Jehovah's Witnesses for 25 years after her mother brought the family into the group.


But - years later - when her first born son falls ill and is in desperate need of a blood transfusion, she is forced to leave Jehovah's Witnesses However, the road to "escaping" the religion isn't so straightforward

NOV201666 & NOV201667


Why this caught my eye:

The solicits are abit weird as no creator names are listed in the main text plus both books have the exact same description. The story sounds fascinating though, and hey you won me over with those titles.

MAMA AKUMA GN VOL 01

(W) Kuzushiro (A/CA) Kuzushiro


Seere is a subordinate demon to Amaimon, the eastern King of Hell. Serious in his work, he prides himself on his ability to make any wish come true. But when he's summoned from a grimoire, what awaits him is a little girl with but one wish: "Please be my mama!!" Seere's long road to motherhood starts here!

NOV201788


Why this caught my eye:

Any time you force a demon into a domestic situation I am down. Plus it actually sounds like it could be pretty heartwarming and forcing demons to understand the power of love is always gold.

ASADORA GN VOL 01

(W) Naoki Urasawa (A/CA) Naoki Urasawa


When Asa's mother goes into labor yet again, Asa runs off to find a doctor. But no one bats an eye when she doesn't return-not even as a storm approaches Nagoya. Forgotten yet again, Asa runs into a burglar and tries to stop him on her own, a decision that leads to an unlikely alliance. For older teen audiences.

NOV201755


Why this caught my eye:

With a summary like that I have no idea where they're going and now I just really wanna know. Plus Naoki urasawa is the creator behind 20th Century Boys so fans of that may want to check this out.

CAROLE & TUESDAY GN VOL 01

(W) Shinichiro Watanabe, Bones (A/CA) Morito Yamataka


Based on the hit anime directed by Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Kids on the Slope), two girls from different worlds connect through a love of music and a desire to make it big on Mars.

Ages 13 And Up

OCT201822


Why this caught my eye:

I've neglected checking the anime out as I didn't realize it was directed by Shinichiro Watanabe. So at the very least this solicit is kind of a kick in the butt for me to check out at least one of the formats of the story out soon.

That's it for this batch! I'll probably aim towards hunting down some more horror titles next time unless something else shiny distracts me.
