Bigheart and Takashichea have returned once again after a real hard time with our schoolwork as of late. The time to re-up is now with the first releases of March! This time, we run into a lot of vampires, a brave samurai, some space pirates from hell and an interesting yuri couple (or so I presume).
The series I'm actually most curious about happens to be Aoi Hana (Sweet Blue Flowers) since it's been on my radar for quite a while. It ended up with some good acclaim from some users that I know and I wonder if this will be any fun.
....aaaand I just found out this is the third Yuri series in a row that I'm looking onto in a row besides a manga by the name of Maka-Maka and the movie version of Revolutionary Girl Utena. A bit perplexing to find out about this just now.
This week has two new vampire themed manga releases, Vampire Knight and Rosario to Vampire II. Well, Rosario Vampire is more about monsters in general with the main heroine being a vampire. I'm stoked to read these volumes. Vampire Knight is a good choice for shoujo fans who love to explore the supernatural side. For harem fans, you should try Rosario to Vampire. It starts off cliche, but it develops in a beautiful story.
Now that everything's been said, what will you pick?
