No GravatarKodansha USA doesn’t make a showing this week, instead waiting until the middle of the month with the sequels to its heavy hitters, Sailor Moon and Sailor V. Viz Media more than makes up for it though, inundating Shonen Jump and Shojo Beat fans. The final volume of the special Death Note Black Edition, which is cool, except I stocked up on the original release years ago. Other gems, like Kimi ni Todoke, continue, along with mysteriously popular manga like Ai Ore!

Classic shojo manga from the master.

But even with the Viz onslaught, all my money this week is going to Vertical. First there’s the newest volume of Twin Spica, the best manga about astronaut high school there is. But on top of that, we get the release of Princess Knight, a shojo manga from Osamu Tezuka originally released in the fifties. Princess Knight has been on my list of manga I desperately wanted translated ever since I found out what it was, so this is a nerdy dream come true. I’m disappointed that Vertical won’t be giving this the VIP treatment, instead opting for a cheaper soft cover edition that all fans can afford, but that won’t keep me from buying it.

So that’s me. The rest of this week’s manga releases are listed below. What will you be buying this week?
