What to read and watch

 The lack of Yen Press manga releases in the past few weeks has been made up for this week since the company's manga has taken over.    

 20th Century Boys, Vol. 12
 20th Century Boys, Vol. 12
The most noteworthy manga out this week is the 12th volume of the popular 20th Century Boys and the third volume of Spice and Wolf. Personally, I am more interested in the third volume of GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class: a collection of 4-Koma about 5 female art majors in their senior year of high school. It seems as though this manga is similar to the essence of Lucky Star with art as the plot point. 
Compared to last one, this week 's anime releases are somewhat scarce but  Bleach's 7th Uncut box set is among the scarce list. The most interesting, of the anime releases, seems to be Tenchi Muyo GXP, the story of Seina Yamada, a guy who's bad luck seems to turn for the better (or maybe worse) when two gorgeous, female Galaxy Police officers take him along with them for the ride of his life. I haven't watched the anime before but it seems as though there is a lot of ecchi involved, something I'm sure some of you will enjoy. 
The year is just about to end, so, end it reading manga or watching anime! Okay then, what will you buy?

I need to buy How to Draw Manga

GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class is pretty funny and it's also educational with art unlike Hidamari Sketch where art was just a plot device or, in the anime, it was the art.

Hmmm not much seems too interesting. Maybe Devil

Damn it I keep on forgetting that Yotsuba&! even exists.

@damswedon: Is it any good? I was going to have that as my manga pick but it seems... strangely infantile

I've already got GXP but I'm really excited about the Sundome release. Other manga I'm looking at is Spice and Wolf and Jack Frost.

Devil looks pretty cool, I'll probably read or watch that one if nothing else.
