New Manga Volume Releases

GangstaGansta (February 18, 2014)- If you guys are into dark and nitty gritty urban stories, this is the manga to read. It takes place in a city called Ergastulum full of thieves and criminals. The main characters, Worick Arcangelo and Nicolas Brown are known as the Handymen who take the jobs no else will touch. Things take a twist when they a cop on the force requests the Handymen to target the top Mafia family…

NisekoiNisekoi: False Love (January 7, 2014)- A super cute and fun series currently available in digital copy from Viz Media. It’s kind of like Romeo and Juliet, but the opposite where a truce is kept between both Yakuza gangs as long as the son and daughter of each respective side can date. LOL

DragonballDragonball: Full Colour Edition (Feb 4, 2014)- One of the classic manga and anime series being made into a vibrant full colour edition. Definitely worth getting if you’re a fan of the series!

Deadman Wonderland is an action packed, supernatural, suspenseful almost post-apocalyptic story. (It’s complicated and it’s a lot of things). If you’re into horror and fantasy and dark stories, go ahead and give this one a try.
