What I’m ordering in January

I figured out what I’m ordering from DCBS this month, these books will be coming out around April.

New manga series:

Honey Hunt – I read the first chapter in Shojo Beat and thought this would be a great Miki Aihara soapy romance title. So I’m excited to read the first collected volume.

Venus Capriccio – A new title from CMX. I’ve had good luck in the past randomly selecting some first volumes of theirs (Venus in Love, Apothecarius Argentum, Oyayubihime Infinity) so I usually want to check out their new series.

Man of Tango – While I might be ordering this mainly because the title is Man of Tango, I am actually curious about this yaoi title from Deux.

Ongoing Series:

Venus in Love #6 – This series about the romantic entanglements of college students just makes me happy. There’s a gentle humor to the book that gives it a feeling of coziness.

Silver Diamond #4 – I still need to catch up and read volumes 2 and 3, but I found the first volume of Silver Diamond so delightfully loopy I am guessing I’ll be happy to have preordered this.

Song of the Hanging Sky #3 – The first couple volumes were absolutely lovely, and I think this series doesn’t get the hype it deserves.

20th Century Boys #2 – Haven’t read the first volume yet, but this is one of the series I’ve been anticipating for a long time.

Boys Over Flowers #35 – Will Tsukasa and Tsukushi ever get together? Oh, those crazy kids!

Jyu Oh Sei #3 – I liked the first volume’s classic scifi feel.

Kyo Kara Maoh #3 – I do have a soft spot for any manga that features a toilet as an interdimensional transportation device.

Fushigi Yugi Genbu Kaiden #8 – There’s such a long wait between volumes of this series, I just read volume 7 and realized I should have taken the time to reread all the previous volumes just to familiarize myself with the story again. Still, I’m liking this more than Fushigi Yugi.

Black Jack #4 and Vagabond VizBig #3 – It is like a double dose of awesomeness!

What manga are you looking forward to picking up in the next few months?
