Welcome everyone! It's a large set of manga releases for this week. I'm looking forward Magi and Deadman Wonderland. Been a big fan of Magi since the anime had aired. I got into it when I saw Annabanana, my Fairy Tail teammate, working on it. I got curious, and my tastes in manga are similar to hers. Magi was spot on. For Deadman Wonderland, it's gorey, but I'm pretty desensitized to it. Knights of Sidonia has an anime series out this spring 2014. The cover has some grotesque thing on it. Not sure if I want to try the show.
All comments are welcome. I would love your two cents on these series. Thank you.
