Before we get to my midweek manga review of Vinland Saga, Vol. 5, have a few news items that caught my attention in what seemed like a rather slow news week.

Noragami, Vol. 1

January 7, 2015 1 comment

Welcome to first midweek manga review of the 2015! As mentioned in Monday’s review of Ajin: Demi-Human, Vol. 2, I’ll be posting two reviews a week for the month of January, but only the Wednesday reviews will get the news round ups. So, before we get to my review of Noragami, Vol. 1, let’s take a look at some of the news highlights from the last month or so…

And now onto the midweek manga review of Noragami, Vol. 1!

by Adachitoka
Kodansha Comics
Rating: Older Teen (16+)

From Adachitoka, artist of Alive: The Final Evolution, comes the supernatural action/adventure comedy, Noragami. Noragami, Vol. 1 introduces us to Yato, a down on his luck god desperate to build up a base of worshippers. Unfortunately he’s not a terribly likable fellow and has zero marketing skills. As a result he’s forced to leave his number in some rather suspect places, such as alley way walls, bathroom stall doors, park benches and more. As one might suspect, the kind of requests, prayers and pleas for help he receives are not exactly up to his demanding standards, thus hijinks ensue.

Say I Love You, Vols. 3 + 4

December 3, 2014 1 comment

Welcome to another midweek manga review here at Sequential Ink! This week I’ll be taking a look at Kanae Hazuki’s fascinating Shojo series in my review of Say I Love You, Vols. 3 + 4. First though, some news!

And now onto this weeks review of Say I Love You, Vols. 3 + 4!

Rating: Older Teen (16+)

Since the first volume, Kanae Hazuki has used Say I Love You to take a more realistic and grounded look into the love lives of teenagers. Say I Love You, Vols. 3 + 4 continue this trend, but striking a balance between more conventional shojo and her fascinating and, at times, disturbingly frank look at teen love is beginning to show it’s strain. Introverted loner, Mei, finds herself fending off new obstacles to her tender and awkward romance with the popular Yamato. This volume sees her struggling with Yamato’s burgeoning model career and struggling with her own desire to be with Yamato in a more romantic and intimate manner than she’s ever dared before.
