Welcome once again to Anime Vice's Quick Picks, where we tell you what to pick "quickly". My co-writers (who actually do most of the work) and I decided to limit ourselves to only picking one item per week. This way you can give your opinions, too, in the comment section.
takashichea's pick: I haven't tried any of these anime or manga releases, so I'll talk about Message to Adolf. The premise focuses on Sohei: a reporter who covers the Berlin Olympic games. One day, Sohei finds his brother dead and when Sohei investigates his murder, he finds all traces of his brother's studies (on Adolf Hitler) gone. It's the mystery genre thrown in with a bit of history that makes it interesting for me.
sora_thekey's pick: It was here on Anime Vice where I was introduced to one of my favorite, lighthearted anime, which just happens to be released this week on BD. I'm so excited that K-On! Season 2 Part 2 is there waiting on the store's shelf for me to pick. The anime focuses on a light music club that is embodied by four lazy girls who never play music. Oh but wait until you hear them play... that is, of course, if they ever stop eating snacks long enough to rehearse.
Bigheart711's pick: My pick for this week happens to be the Oh, My Goddess Manga because I begun reading it recently. So far, it's pretty good, but sadly, I don't have much else to say about it since
Sora stole my pick and I'm only on the second volume. I've got a lot more reading to do from here on out...
Be sure to let us know what you'll be getting this week in the comments section below.
PS. I didn't steal BH711's pick. I called "dibs" first... he simply wasn't quick enough!
