In addition, Sweetness and Lightning (Amaama to Inazuma) by AMAGAKURE Gido will be going to print this July. You can currently read new chapters for free on Crunchyroll.

For more information on these series, you can read about them here.

I’m most excited for Welcome to the Ballroom. When I read and reviewed Let’s Dance a Waltz, I kept dreaming of Welcome to the Ballroom, so I am so glad Kodansha Comics picked it up. The Prince in His Dark Days sounds like a very intriguing series. I also had no idea Takei of Shaman King is doing a series for Kodansha. I guess he left Shueisha…interesting.

So, what are you looking forward to?

    I’ll be getting the Lost Girls LN (it’s a LN right?) because I’ve been collecting the SnK stuff for a while now 🙂 I actually haven’t heard of all the others you listed @_@ but I just looked at your link and a lot of these look good!

    Sweetness&Lightning: I saw like a preview or something for an anime about this? It looks really adorable 🙂

    Cells at Work: I just want to check this out because it’s about the body! And are those the red and white blood cells on the cover? xD I’m really curious how this is going to turn out

    Stray Cat Samurai: Did someone say Shaman King?! I need to at least check this one out!

      Vertical is publishing the light novel of Lost Girls; Kodansha is publishing the manga.
      Cells at Work also caught my attention. I know there’s been some animated movies like this, but I don’t think there’s been any manga in English.
      Sweetness & Lightning’s anime debuts in the summer, so just in time. It’s definitely cute; I just don’t fully understand why the author went the student x teacher route.

    Attack on Titan: Lost Girls could be good. More Annie is always nice.

    1. krystallina

      I own most of Attack on Titan and its spinoffs, and yet I’ve only read the first couple volumes… Guess I should actually read them to find out who Annie is. XD

  3. In/Spectre and The Prince in His Dark Days immediately have my interest. The latter looks extremely intriguing.

    1. krystallina

      The title + the cover = one excited me. It sounds exactly like the type of series I’d like to see more of.

      1. Same! I am so glad we are getting more shojo/josei titles!
