takashichea's Picks: The one thing that sticks out from this week's QPs is Pokemon Adventures. My little brother tends to check out the Pokemon Adventures and Yu_Gi-Oh books from the library. So, I've read the Red and Blue books, but I haven't gotten to the Johto stories yet, even though that is my favorite region in the Pokemon animation universe.
More exciting Pokemon adventures starring Gold and his rival Silver! First someone steals Gold's backpack full of Poke Balls (and Pokemon!). Then someone steals Prof. Elm's Totodile. Can Gold catch the thief - or thieves?!
Contains volumes 8-14 of Pokemon Adventures and a color poster!
Bigheart711's Picks: This week, I want to talk about Oreimo. I have been wanting to watch the anime, but I had no idea that there was a manga version of it, until now. I've heard good things about both of them. When I noticed that the memes showed up, I decided to try them out right after I clear out and update part of my "currently watching/reading" roster.
High school student Kyosuke doesn't get along with his cranky, dismissive, and secretive 14-year-old little sister Kirino, but he finds himself somehow protecting Kirino's secrets - she's not only a fashion model and a great student, but she's got a huge collection of naughty video games and anime! Who says girls can't be otaku, too?
sora_thekey's Picks: Is the Bakuman series currently in your reading/watching list? No? Then what are you doing sitting around reading this article?! You should be out buying the manga or watching the anime!!! On a serious note, Bakuman Vol. 14 is out this week and the story about two kids struggling in the manga industry continues to be the most interesting anime franchise, in my opinion...
Is Moritaka and Akito's newest rival also their greatest fan?! The duo is asked to judge a manga contest and the best entry reminds them of their own creations. But who is this mysterious new artist and what are his controversial methods of creating manga?
Besides Bakuman, what will you buy?
