Upcoming 11/3/2010

I’m about to go vote, because the alternative is just too horrible. When I vote with my dollars in tomorrow’s ComicList election, the big winner is likely to be Viz.

A new title by Usumaru Furuya is a big reason why. He’s so weird and smart. Here’s what Viz says about the Genkaku Picasso:

“Hikari Hamura, nicknamed Picasso because of his natural artistic abilities, survived a horrible accident, but his friend Chiaki wasn’t so lucky. Suddenly, Chiaki appears in front of him and tells him in order to keep living he must help the people around him. Can Hikari save people with his sketchbook and a 2B pencil?”

In the interest of full disclosure, I’d pick up a new Furuya series no matter how it was described, but this one sounds fun.

Viz also offers some new volumes of fun series:

  • Gin Tama vol. 20, written and illustrated by Hideaki Sorachi
  • Hikaru no Go vol. 21, written by Yumi Hotta, illustrated by Takeshi Obata
  • Kimi ni Todoke: From Me to You vol. 6, written and illustrated by Karuho Shiina
  • What looks good to you?

      I might give Kimi ni Todoke: From Me to You, Vol. 6 a read but volume five left me luke warm the first four volumes where fantastic thoguh. Also Lucky Star volume 6 becuese I waited on that one for quite some time.

      Yeah, it is pretty horrible with all the bars closed. *rimshot*

      Genkaku Picasso sounds like something that needs to be picked up. Thanks for the heads-up!

      I just read Kimi no Todoke Vol. 2 though and I’m not so sure I’m sold on it. It’s a really good fluff read since Wild Ones ended, but there are so many failures of basic human logic going on that the book was lucky it didn’t end up sliding down the wall multiple times. It’s one of those shojo pod people books; ‘My heart is racing, is this the human emotion of love I am feeling right now? No, it must be the human emotion of anger I have read so much about. I must act more angry around Human Friend Kaori.’
