Welcome to the June's 1st week of manga releases. Wow, there are lot of manga volumes. Out of all of them, I'm mostly interested in Knights of Sidonia because I got into the anime series that aired during the Spring 2014 season. It's one of my personal top 5 shows for this season. I haven't read the manga yet, but once the anime is over, I'll check out the manga series.
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.
None for this week.
