Manga the week of 9/22

A small but filling dose of manga next week.

Vertical has the second volume of Felipe Smith's manga from Japan, Peepo Choo. The first volume was very much in your face. I may review all 3 at once, since I never got a chance to review the first one.

Viz has what they list on their website as the final volume of the Shakugan no Shana manga, which may come as a surprise to those who know that Vol. 7 came out in Japan a while ago. When I first saw this, I thought it might be due to low sales, but it could also be a licensing issue, or something else. I still think calling an unfinished series finished is the wrong way to handle it. There's also the first volume of the low key samurai manga House of Five Leaves from Natsume Ono.

Yen has a pile of stuff. I'm not certain if this volume of With the Light is the last (the creator died before it was finished), but it's still worth your time. Bunny Drop is eagerly awaited by the whole blogging community, while Bamboo Blade is eagerly awaited by ME, and I believe this volume is the one that 'catches up' to the anime series. Cat Paradise is a series I couldn't get into, but lots of my friends like it, and it manages to exist in Champion Red without being creepy, always a plus. This is its final volume. And for those who enjoyed the yaoi otaku weirdness of My Girlfriend's A Geek in manga form, now you can read the novel it's based on.
