Bookshelf Overload: November 2014

Once again, November mostly brought preorders and a few review copies to my doorstep, but I also made a point of picking up some first volumes of older series that I’ve been meaning to try, like Pandora Hearts, Bakuman, and Oresama Teacher. As for the preorders I was particularly happy to see arrive, there was the penultimate volume of Blade of the Immortal by Hiroaki Samura, Kaoru Mori’s A Bride’s Story, Volume 6, and Takehiko Inoue’s Real, Volume 13. I also picked up a couple of alt-manga releases: Akino Kondoh’s Nothing Whatsoever All Out in the Open and Masahiko Matsumoto’s The Man Next Door. It was a good month for fans of Fumi Yoshinaga, too; both Ōoku: The Inner Chambers, Volume 10 and What Did You Eat Yesterday?, Volume 5 are now available. But the release that I was probably most excited about in November wasn’t actually even manga. The Early Cases of Akechi Kogoro by Edogawa Rampo, a collection of four stories featuring one of Rampo’s most famous characters, has been published by Kurodahan Press!
