takashichea (Level 25)

I finally finished the Quick Picks manga releases for July's last 2 weeks. I'm starting to think that I can't improve my speed in completing them. It takes 3 - 4 hours to complete the article each week. I'll work on episode summaries tomorrow. PM me

Welcome to the June's 2nd week of manga releases! This week, we had a record breaking for adult manga series. Right Stuf has 7 manga titles, but I omitted one because ANN had listed back in May, Virgin Games. This week has three lovely art books. My Quick Pick choices would be Deadman Wonderland, Magi, and Tiger & Bunny since I had watched their respective anime series. I love them both. Deadman Wonderland is a gruesome and dark show full of over the top graphic violence. Not that violent like Gantz which I heard is more brutal. Thank god, Deadman Wonderland has no rape in it. Magi is one of my favorite Shonen series to follow. If you're looking for a refreshing Shonen series after getting tired of the Shonen Trinity, give Magi a try. It is a fantasy and adventure series about Aladdin who finds out he plays a role in saving the world from Al Sarmen who seeks to drown the world into depravity. Finally, Tiger and Bunny is my fave for lovable characters who are heroes working to make a living and a difference.

Please feel free to share your thoughts on what manga releases you're interested in this week. Thank you.

Disclaimer: I'm just promoting the official release and the publishers. I'm not selling you anything. This is to combat piracy and get fans to support the official release. All summaries are from ANN.
