Hello everyone and welcome to this week's manga releases. This blog was one of Sora_thekey's project back in Anime Vice where he informs folks about weekly manga releases in the states. This is our way of encouraging folks to support the industry.
For this last week's releases, I'm psyched for Attack on Titan. Still haven't read the manga chapters after the anime. I'm interested in Vinland Saga that made in Anime Vice's Top Manga Series of 2013. Finally, Sankarea is on my To Read list after hearing Ben Applegate talked how cool it was back in Kodansha Panel at AX 2013.
All summaries are from Anime News Network. It's thanks to PikaHyper for uploading the English covers.
There are differences between Comic Book stores, Manga exclusive stores, and online stores with their manga releases.
For Mayo Chiki, Familiar's Zero: Chevaliar, and Monster Musume, they are available this week through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Right Stuf.

Monster Musume is an all-new manga series that presents the classic harem comedy with a fantastical twist: the female cast of characters that tempts our male hero is comprised of exotic and enticing supernatural creatures like lamias, centaurs and harpies!

Three years ago, the world learned that harpies, centaurs, catgirls, and all manners of fabulous creatures are not merely fiction; they are flesh and blood—not to mention scale, feather, horn, and fang. Thanks to the "Cultural Exchange Between Species Act," these once-mythical creatures have assimilated into society, or at least, they’re trying.When a hapless human teenager named Kurusu Kimihito is inducted as a "volunteer" into the government exchange program, his world is turned upside down. A snake-like lamia named Miia comes to live with him, and it is Kurusu’s job to take care of her and make sure she integrates into his everyday life. Unfortunately for Kurusu, Miia is undeniably sexy, and the law against interspecies breeding is very strict. Even worse, when a ravishing centaur girl and a flirtatious harpy move in, what’s a full-blooded teenage human with raging hormones to do?!
